About Me & What I Do

Blog—”Something to think about...”


My current activities

I now only get involved in activities that spark my interest or present a challenge.  I focus on groups and workshops rather than individual therapy, as I enjoy group energy!  But if you want to know if I can help you or give you information, just ask!


Shamanic Practice


I follow a Shamanic path and use Shamanic tools to help others to heal and connect to their power .  One of these tools is the Shamanic Journey which I teach to others for self-searching, and into which I also guide others for self-healing.



Workshops and Groups


I hold workshops and discussion groups for women interested in emotional, psychological and spiritual development .  I also teach Shamanic Journeying, Tarot, and am a Tarot Consultant with 30+ years experience. 




Who I am

I come from a successful career in corporate management but left the rat race 20+ years ago to find what I wanted to do for the rest of my life—and I did! 

I have trained in Advanced Structured Hypnosis, Stress Management, Spiritual Healing, Reiki, Personal Performance Coaching and Shamanic Practice. as well as writing a couple of books along the way and working as a Consultant.

I have had practices in Harley Street London, in Surrey and Hampshire, and also in Wales, where I broadcast my own radio programme, Mind to Mind, every week on Radio Ceredigion.

I have also developed and presented training courses for private schools in Malaysia, and acted as a Consultant in the development of courses and workshops on Values in Healthcare for the Janki Foundation.

In my former role as Director and Vice Chair of the National Federation of Spiritual Healers—the UK’s largest healing organisation— I appeared on Kilroy and on Sky News and was interviewed on LBC.  I also represented the National Federation of Spiritual Healers before the House of Lords Select Committee on Complementary Therapies.

I have devised and facilitated workshops on stress management and assertiveness for an organisation in the UK providing services to disadvantaged women.

My activities have extended to Malaysia and Australia where I have acted as Group Adviser on various business activities, including the development of an Academy of Natural Therapies. 

I have also been a Visiting Consultant at the Chiva Som Spa in Thailand  and have provided services to the National Phobics Society (now Anxiety UK) and to the Macmillan Butterfly Centre (cancer support) at Epsom Hospital in Surrey.

I am now based in Turkey - in the region of Köycegiz -  within easy reach of Dalyan, Dalaman, Marmaris and Fethiye.
