As a child life was full of wonder, magic, mystery, the constant unseen presence of the hand of Spirit, guiding every step. Every moment was filled with new discoveries, an indescribable kind of love and a nameless beauty, which wasn’t separate from who I was. No matter what those around me told me or how they viewed the world, something within me somehow knew the truth.

This truth or inner knowing would become my life-line. Challenged with the experience of physical, emotional and mental abuse through the school I attended up until my early teenage years I turned inwards, built a wall around this truth and clung desperately to it as my place of refuge.  Life felt cruel, but somehow no matter what happened this light I carried within my heart could never be extinguished, even though I tried to hide it and pretend to be what others wanted me to be in order to survive, somehow I never lost connection with it.

Over several years the walls I had built around this truth would begin to crumble, as through my early and late teenage years I immersed myself within the study of multiple spiritual traditions and healing systems. Leading into my thirties and more formal educational pursuits within several body-based psycho-therapeutic approaches of trauma release, as well as travels through Egypt and India receiving initiation into various lineages of enlightened wisdom, which brought me home to the truth I had always known to be present, open-hearted, honest, real, safe in my body and the world.

Recognising my own experience as commonplace in that most of us were not given what we required within order to feel safe to fully show up in the world then led me into the work I now offer as an invitation into a radical form of aliveness,  self-acceptance, connection and compassion.

Rooted in my formal educational studies of Chinese Medicine, various forms of body-based psychotherapeutic practice, VortexHealing® and shamanic journeying, along with knowledge gained from immersion within the world’s great spiritual traditions, this work comes from what I know of what it is to be touched by the presence of the Divine.

As it is my greatest pleasure to support others in meeting that in themselves, their essence, their Divinity, their truth, and to witness how that changes lives, as old wounds and trauma fall away – leaving space for new possibilities and ways of being in the world to emerge.
