Having worked in the field of Social Development for many years exploring the complexities that exist within communities and the challenging nature of social justice, and the following 10 years in Leadership Development, the interconnection of two questions led me into the world of alternative practices. These questions being: How do people heal? and how do people create positive change?
These two questions, along with my fascination with the human potential, an interest in the body’s intrinsic ability to heal and maintain itself, as well as my intrigue in the world of metaphysics led me to work with people as leaders within their own lives and environments, using methods that tap into the interdependent layers of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states.
My Approach | Bridging Worlds, Unlocking Potential and Awakening Your Being
Alongside my mainstream profession in Community and Leadership Development, I have built my private practice over 2 decades. My therapeutic and healing practises are informed by traditional wisdom philosophies and grounded in contemporary psycho-spiritual processes. My training ranges extensively across western clinical methods to a number of ancient healing systems, with my shamanic work rooted in the Peruvian Q'ero Lineage.
Runa means 'to bridge worlds' and my approach to personal development is to bridge ancient cross-cultural systems with the modern world by powerfully weaving the science of psychology, ancient wisdom practises with the game changing world of coaching.
Parallel to my private practice, I am a professionally qualified coach for the NHS providing talent management and leadership development across the London healthcare system. Whilst beyond this, on a personal and professional level my practises are nurtured through my own growth which inform my offerings and enable me to live any ordinary day more vividly, true to myself and ever-more embodied.

My work is compassionate, intuitive and integrative, working on the cognitive level alongside metaphysical states. With a person centred focus, I connect with you as a unique being whose experiences and conditions are exclusive to you. This leads the way to establishing the most appropriate methods for resolution of your issues and will usually encompass a combination of modalities along with the many tools I have acquired along the way.
Calm and empowering; I inspire you to move towards your potential with a commitment to awakening you to that which lies beneath, whilst supporting you to integrate your experiences through your very own transformative healing journey.
"Runa has taken me from a scared, worried and anxious person to someone who has tools to deal with conflict, speak up and address concerns. She is trustworthy, warm, experienced and skilled. She has the ability to listen and give practical guidance for growth. She understands complex situations and dynamics very quickly and easily. Runa was not afraid to ask the BIG questions. I could not have asked for a better coach to trust with my personal thoughts, fears and worries. I am only sad that our work is done!"
