What is your name?  

Hilary Lewin

Briefly sum up who you are and what motivates you. 

A big footed, down to earth beauty who is motivated by almost anything in the short term but my passion is my work in the long term.

If you have a job, what do you do for a living? 

An International Arvigo® Teacher and Therapist. A bodyworker with my main focus on the abdomen and all it contains emotionally and physically. Wombs are my world.

How long have you been doing this? 

Bodyworker 28 years, Arvigo® Therapist coming on 15.

What do you find most satisfying about your job?

Meeting amazing people and getting to travel as an older woman which I did not have time to do as a youngster.

Is your work primarily a means to an end ie money, or the motivating force of your life? 

Very much about making money to pay my bills, modest as my lifestyle is but it is also a massive motivating force which I am immensely proud of.

When you were 8, what did you want to be when you grew up? 

I have no idea…some kind of performer.

Did you get there – and if not, are you happy/sad that you didn’t? 

I think I am pretty content with the way things are working out. Can’t say I have ever been that good at looking ahead but there is very much a performance aspect to teaching.

What is your dream job? 

Very much the one I have.

If UK-based, are you glad, indifferent or disappointed that the official pension age is rising? 

As a woman with no pension, it makes no difference to me but I actually think men and women should share the same pensionable age if only they could share the same salaries for the same jobs. Seeing as that is still not the case then it’s yet another raw deal for women in the workforce.
