I have been on a long journey through many different aspects of life and spirituality, there have been times when I felt spirit had abandoned me, but they turned out to be huge shifts in perception or transition points. It has been a deep learning which will serve me well as an understanding of where others are on theirs.
I was brought up in South Africa, from the age of 7 years old, when my parents emigrated there, seeking a better life and for me and my brothers and it was, I grew to love nature as camping out in the wild was a big part of life then and animals who I often turned to as dear friends when feeling misunderstood. I know now that my animal healing abilities began back then. I was deeply affected by apartheid, which I did not realise until I began my own healing, it has been a journey of unravelling who I really am and letting go of the wounding of this lifetime.
Working with animals was a big part of my awakening, I was told out of the blue, that I needed to work with healing horses and other animals. I carefully began using Reiki and Aromatherapy oils with horses and it took off and the change in the animals was incredible, mentally and physically and it opened up my heart to who I really am, I am forever grateful to them for that, many of the owners also became attuned to Reiki through me and now carry on this work.
HOW do we create change
We create a new story with other caring people around us, in a place that heals, soothes and brings hope, enlightenment and inspiration to move forward in a new and positive way to create healing for MEN & WOMEN WHO WANT CHANGE!
When we take care of ourselves, we create a strong healthy environment to be the best we can for others, without taking away their responsibility for themselves, with no self-agenda. We have within all of us 'male and female energies' which easily become out of balance, knowing ourselves deeply enables us to correct those imbalances, to live a balanced life.
I have used my experiences to create a loving, caring sanctuary for myself from the inside not looking for the answers outside of myself, helping me grow and share a loving, caring sanctuary for others and myself, to help them grow in leaps and bounds to find out WHO THEY ARE REALLY ARE and uncover the new authentic story, of who they were born to be in this life. Connecting with the higher self creates a higher vibration within, enabling us to empower ourselves with our authentic guidance. A much happier way of being in the world.
Shamanism has taught me how our ancestors have a huge impact on us, it has been proven scientifically, that our genes carry the trauma of our ancestors. Their journey also inspires us and brings healing to the present time as we uncover our gifts through our lineage.
Healing the ancestors and honouring them is part of our healing and wisdom.
This is such a positive period of growth and healing for us all as a new life is unfolding in the AGE OF AQUARIUS and allowing so many to find the peace and happiness they desserve........ As we heal we heal the earth.

I am a Shamanic practitioner because I also work within the Spirit world and this allows me to include these connections within my Sound Healing practice.
I trained as a Sound Healer in Belgium in 2012, with Michele Averard and Nestor Kornblum, co-founders and directors of the Spanish and International Associations of Sound Therapy. In 2017 I attended their first Advanced Sound Healing Course in Spain.
Journeying has played a very fundamental role in my spiritual path, which has given me a profound appreciation that it is only through healing ourselves that we can contribute to the healing of the whole. We are responsible for our own lifetime’s learning, and sometimes this does not happen until the agony of not learning is the painful catalyst for the insight to be finally understood. Buffffff – life can be hard - but clarity is just soooooo beautiful.
Life is like surfing on the wave of a tsunami, and we cannot get off……. the only thing we can do is to try and keep standing - and to enjoy the ride!!! The changes occurring are so enormous, so global yet also so very personal and individual. We yearn to find a purpose, a mission, a reason for being alive, but genuine insight can only occur when we journey inside ourselves and understand that we are part of everything.
Why do I do what I do? Because I believe in the power of individuals to change their lives, whether that’s through music making, education or coaching. I inspire people to make choices that take them on new adventures, whilst celebrating who they are and their journey so far.
What about teaching? As well as being an entrepreneur I have always been a teacher and facilitator. Firstly of clarinet, saxophone, musicianship and now I am a professor of Creative Enterprise at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I work with inspiring young innovators, supporting them in turning their dreams and passions into viable businesses and careers.
How does coaching fit? Three years ago my business & teaching worlds found harmony when I discovered coaching. I now have a vibrant coaching business, where I specialise in working with creative women who seek to make a difference. I collaborate with change makers, social entrepreneurs and artists. I work with women who have a clear social mission to make the lives of others better.
I am very excited to be facilitating this coaching retreat because it offers an affordable space for women entrepreneurs to experience the magic that happens when you focus on your vision, your mind and your potential. I welcome your questions and look forward to meeting you in the sunshine!
