(MIPP) Associate member of the Institute of Psychotherapeutic Practitioners
I first became interested in spiritual areas during childhood and experienced many unusual occurrences, including seeing and hearing spiritual beings. I was a sensitive child and quickly became aware that I was different to others. I also began to realise that the world I experienced was very different to that of the adults around me. As I became a teenager, I began to experiment and in my own way to develop spiritually. I studied everything I could lay my hands on and read hundreds of books on occult, spiritual ideas, religious thought and paganism. In adulthood I learned to read the Tarot and one day had an awakening and found that I had become a very powerful psychic medium. When I was in my early thirties I became an initiated witch. It was several years later that I discovered various native spiritual practices from around the world.
I had discovered shamanism and realised that I had in fact come home in a spiritual sense. It was during this time that I was made a pipe carrier by a Lakota holy man. Like so many shamans I am very eclectic and many different cultural influences can be found within my spiritual practices. A shaman is often called a walker-between worlds, with one foot in each. For my healing work I am well grounded in the physical world as I have studied psychotherapy, NLP, hypnotherapy and stress management together with a great deal more. I operate from the standpoint of the wounded healer. I carry my story of pain, illness and tragedy as an inspirational demonstration of the healing ability of spiritual practice. I come from a place of understanding and personal transformation. When you come to me, you put yourself in the safe hands of experience.
