About us

Our Story

Mother Nature's Barn has been created by 
Matt and Jenny Thorn.


Since graduating from university I have followed three career paths - as the owner/manager of a care home, as a Design and Technology trainee teacher, and for the last ten years as the owner of Greenacres Landscapes of Chappel. 

Work kept me busy and parenthood brought many joys and challenges, but for many years severe anxiety compromised and shaped my daily life. I tried various treatments, none of which had a deep and lasting effect. Then I attended an 8-week Mindfulness Meditation course, and my life changed significantly for the better. Since then, I have wanted to help others in similar pain.

Over the last five years, I have striven to increase my knowledge and experience of living a spiritual life. Inspired by my new approach to life and my desire to help people, I decided to train as a Massage Therapist and a Meditation Teacher.

My qualifications include:

City and Guilds Diploma in Body Massage.

Living in the Light Certified Meditation Teacher Training.


I believe that everything that happens in our life brings us to exactly where we need to be. I feel that I am now at a place in my own life where I can help other people, based on what I have learnt and experienced.

I have previously owned and managed a beauty and holistic salon, and have over ten years’ experience providing treatments and running Wellbeing Parties. My spiritual journey has shaped my life, and I enjoy teaching people how living a spiritual life means so much more than sitting cross-legged with your eyes closed. Having previously taught Beauty Therapy in Further Education, I wanted to follow my heart and teach meditation – and that’s when the idea of Mother Nature's Barn was born.

My qualifications include:

City and Guilds Diploma in Beauty Therapy.

City & Guilds Diploma in Complimentary Treatments.

Living in the Light Certified Meditation Teacher Training and Reiki Masters.
