I was born in Guildford, Surrey. At the tender age of 9, I went to live in Johannesburg in South Africa. This has had a profound impact on my life and the way in which I view things. Visiting traditional witch doctors in down town Johannesburg was just one of my early childhood experiences. At an early age it was recognised that I had psychic abilities and vivid premonitions in the form of dreams but this had to be developed and channeled. After returning to live in England at age 12 to complete my schooling, I returned to South Africa and lived in Cape Town for a number of years before moving back to Johannesburg where I met my husband.
My husband recognised my psychic abilities too and sent me on my first course to learn Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki. Since then I have never looked back and have experienced some amazing insights, particularly working with Tera-Mai™ Healing. I became acquainted with Carolyn Myss’ work. I learnt so much from her and my appetite for Reiki and to understand what the real purpose of a healing journey represents to individuals grew in leaps and bounds.
I practised Reiki in South Africa up until 2002, at which point I left and spent a year living in Israel, where I continued to offer treatments before returning to England.
In the heat wave of July 2003 I returned home to England, once settled I set about building my Reiki practice. In the autumn of 2004 I founded “Your Hands Can Heal School of Reiki” with the intention of providing quality training and treatments, which seemed to be in short supply. I concentrated on the A-Z of teaching a total novice about Reiki and healing. I founded the school with the intention of producing confident therapists who would go on to practice their skills. Simultaneously, I gave people in need much needed healing and relief.
To date I have incorporated Usui Shiki Ryoho, KarunaⓇ Reiki and currently Tera-Mai™ Reiki Healing. In parallel I have organised a variety workshops and events supporting what I teach. I qualified as an Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki master/teacher back in 2000. In 2011 I was awarded the WPF Certificate in Counselling Skills from the Counselling Centre in Tunbridge Wells. In 2013 I was one of the first Reiki practitioners in England to meet the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council’s criteria for admission to their register.
More recently I graduated to Tera-Mai™ Healing. After experiencing a treatment, I instantly decided that this was something I wanted to offer to both my clients and students. What I have discovered since switching is that Tera-Mai™ Reiki Healing really does take healing to a new level, where previously the results I was looking for were not possible to achieve.
