About Me


To live in the moment and act out of compassion


Fran-Getting unwell with ME/Chronic Fatigue aged 19 took me on a different path, I left University, yet soon embarked on a healing path. Now I work in the field of alternative health care as a practitioner and facilitator of various healing modalities. My joy is to be open and loving, to be healthy and to grow in wisdom and knowledge. Meditation, dancing, yoga and running are key aspects that remind me of such joy on a day to day and moment to moment basis. I also love traveling, and how I've learnt so much through meeting and learning from people of different cultures. Discovering Buddhism in Nepal was a key turning point in my life, bringing me on to a spiritual path.
James- pretty much the same, let's have a laugh. I'd love to meet you.


presence, a laugh and love

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


James-You can kip at mine, i have couch/mattress
Fran- At present I rent with an older lady so can't easily offer a couch. However, I am happy to show travelers the beautiful countryside around where I live just outside Sheffield, and to bring people in for a cup of tea.
