My journey, education and training

In 1992 my healing journey emerged out of my love of dance. Initially dancing led me to bodywork in the form of massage and I ran a comprehensive practise incorporating holistic massage as well as sports therapy in a clinic for five years. Local doctors referred their patients to me for massage so I had the privilege of working with a very diverse range of people whose issues and conditions deepened my understanding of the relationship between the spirit, mind and body.

During this time I continued to study – nutrition, aromatherapy, yoga, Pilates until in 1996 I studied spiritual healing with Jack and Jan Angelo under the auspices of the NFSH. The Angelos gave me my first taste of the Red Road as I joined them for sweat lodges and we held a council of all beings to explore the impact of western lifestyles on the environment.

From 2001 I trained in Mediumship at the College of Psychic Studies with Dr Angela Watkins for three years and completed an animal healing course with her too. These disciplines deepened my connection to spirit and intuition.

In 2004 I visited Peru and found myself completely mesmerised by the natural spirituality so widely evident there. Dwellers of the Andes, who've perhaps ventured no further than the next village, may nevertheless be seen sitting on the mountain-side venerating their Apu (mountain); at every turn, all over Peru, offerings and thanks are given to Pachamama (mother earth). 

While in the Andes I made a deep connection with the mountains (I heard their call) which has shaped my life ever since. I also had a coca leaf reading with a Shaman and this confirmed my healing path. Since that time I have had initiations and healing from other Andean Paqos as well as training and being initiated in the Peruvian indigenous traditions, underpinned by the cosmology of the Q'ero elders whose connection to nature spirits is unbroken.

While all therapeutic modalities are beneficial, for me the very deep healing I received while doing the medicine wheel brought such profound changes and shifts to my outlook and life that it is the wisdom wrought from this process which I wholeheartedly offer to others now. My training as an Energy Medicine Practitioner included profound psychological dismemberment held within the structure of the medicine wheel. This process of demolition and rebuilding with the sweetness, love and harmony of the cosmology of the wisdom-keepers of Peru offered profound personal transformation as well as depths of insight hitherto undreamed of.

My teachers: I have been and continue to be blessed with wonderful teachers in human form and the best of them agree that ultimately our greatest teacher is nature herself.
