My Journey in life


I did not start my career as a healer. I originally studied electronics and electrical engineering at university in Aberdeen and went on to work within the oil industry for 6 years.

I began taking night classes in reflexology and massage, was practicing tai chi and having reiki treatments and realised I really wanted to learn more about healing.

I discovered acupuncture and nervously left a very well paid job and career to study acupuncture at Salford University in Manchester and I couldn’t have been happier!

I have now been practicing acupuncture since 2005 and am also fully trained in plant spirit medicine, which I studied with Eliot Cowan a initiated shaman of the Huichol tradition, since 2008.

I find more and more that I want to work at the spirit level which is the deepest part of us, where all beings, whether humans, plants or animal are all connected.

My healing learning continued when I visited a famous holy well in County Clare, Ireland, in June 2017. The well is dedicated to St. Brigid the Saint of healing and higher consciousness. Since that day I have begun to channel the spirit of healers, surgeons, shaman and saints who live in the spirit realm and want to continue to help humanity through their healing skills.

Unlike the other healing modalities I practice, I did not choose this way of healing - it chose me.

A lucky meeting with Jeanette Wilson (a famous spiritual healer/spiritual surgeon who lives in New Zealand) helped me find out more about this healing work and I completed a course with Jeanette in the summer of 2018.

I am forever amazed and grateful of the power of healing and feel blessed to be part of the healing journey for people. When I’m not working I am a mum and a musician and I love getting out in the fresh air for a good walk.
