I was born in Guildford, Surrey. At the tender age of 9, I went to live in Johannesburg in South Africa. This had a profound effect on my life. 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. I then returned to live in England at age 12 to complete my schooling. Thereafter, I returned to South Africa and lived in Cape Town for 3 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.
