As far back as I can remember I was always able to hear or feel things that others could not. As a child I was communicating with the spirits of nature; animals, trees and the elements from a very early age. I was always happiest outside with the trees and animals: I felt safe, nurtured and protected.

The ability to communicate with these nature spirits and spirits in the non physical world was natural to me but something I learned to keep to myself and not talk about as it wasn’t always understood by others. Being able to deeply feel other people’s emotions and energies and the stories I would intuitively know that were attached to them brought up so many questions for me as a child. Going out into nature on my own always relaxed and recharged me and even gave me the answers to those questions I held deep inside.  It was through my own life experiences and journey to healing that I learnt how to strengthen and use these abilities to help myself and others. I learnt how to connect with others in this sacred space, how to recognise and differentiate between the energies and how to clear and transmute energies. The gifts I once kept to myself blossomed into my strengths.

For many years I worked in both the public and private sector as a Project Manager in Construction Design Management. Starting out at the BBC, going into the corporate sector in the City of London and then becoming a freelancer all over the UK and Ireland. I loved my work and I loved the feeling of helping and supporting others in these moments of transition. Any kind of move or change in life can be extremely difficult especially if you feel you have no control or input in the situation. My aim was to involve the staff, connect with them and let them know that I would be with them the whole way through the transition. I learnt very early on that through connection, listening and holding space for people, compromise and new possibilities can be achieved. Having the ability to meet people where they are and not try to impose your own views upon them is paramount to any successful working relationship.

But then soon enough I felt another calling. Once I left this career and started to follow my souls calling I would wonder why I had spent time in this field if it wasn’t my chosen path but then I began to look back and understand that it was the perfect training for what I would eventually do. What is project management if it isn’t the role of helping someone during a period of difficult change, listening to them and walking beside them during those changes? Project Management is often referred to as Crisis Management and for good reason as it’s about facing all the unseen challenges on the journey and managing them as best you can with the tools you have in your toolbox. Bringing calm to the chaos. This experience of being able to go into any office, connect with strangers, create trust and work with them to a satisfactory completion of a project for all involved was invaluable.


Whilst working as a freelancer I was able to free up time to do the things that I was passionate about. I trained as a Massage Therapist and a Reiki Master and a new path opened up. Once I began experiencing these modalities for myself and the positive changes they brought about in my life I wanted to experience more and to also share their benefits with others. I had been working as a holistic therapist for ten years when the opportunity to expand my Yoga practice to training as a teacher arose. This took me even deeper into my own healing journey. Sound Healing was my next calling and this naturally led me to Dunderry Park and my Shamanic Healing Practitioner training. Both courses were based in the Irish tradition which I loved as it was the traditions of my ancestors.  With the Sound Therapy I felt like I had come back to something I had always known, I didn’t need to think about it, this knowledge came from deep within me. When I arrived at Dunderry Park I felt like I had come home. In this home I was actively encouraged to talk to the trees and ask them for their wisdom. It felt like I had come full circle. Every time I attended a workshop or course I felt I was coming back to something I already knew. Every layer I released in my healing uncovered another part of myself or another connection to Spirit or Beings of Higher Consciousness who wanted to help me on my journey and in my work.

I have trained for many years in a variety of healing techniques including Massage and Bodywork, Reiki, Yoga, Sound Healing and Shamanic Healing; with world-leading teachers including Don Conreaux, Aidan McIntyre, Sheila Whittaker, Jens Zygar, Frank Perry, Martin Duffy and Annette Peard. I continue my training and my own journey of self healing to this day.

The healing journey really is a journey back to oneself. A releasing of all that is not ours and no longer serves us. By this I mean the personalities we have had to adopt to survive, the roles we have had to take on or been forced upon us, the life choices we have made that fulfilled someone else’s lost dreams or expectations of us and the patterns of behaviour or relationships that we repeat as we were not given the tools to make healthy boundaries or changes. And so we can begin to feel stuck or uncomfortable where we are and we may not always be aware what the cause of this feeling is. It can show up in a variety of ways such as physical pain, stress, anxiety, illness, addiction. This point is the beginning of the journey. This is where we begin to listen to what our body and soul are telling us. When I connect in the space I begin to hear/see/feel where the block is, why it’s there and what healing needs to be done to release it. It’s a gentle process and the one that take us to awareness. In this process we create a deeper connection to ourselves and as a result others. We open up higher conscious abilities such as empathy; psychic abilities, deep insight and the ability to co create our reality as we begin to see which of our energies are attracting the different facets of our lives. We can release ancestral and past life patterns clearing them out of not only our own energetic field but also those of generations to come. The work we do here ripples out to all facets of our lives.
