Welcome to our next interview in a series with female leaders, teachers and practitioners in the holistic therapeutic fields. These are women whose teaching has inspired me and I have been keen to learn more about their personal philosophy, experiences and the influences on their professional practice. I hope you enjoy hearing their story too. Let us know your thoughts, Nicole.
Carola Beresford-Cooke MRSS(T)

She has studied with many of the masters of Shiatsu and her principal teacher was Pauline Sasaki.
