Welcome to my world!

My mission is to help your soul to shine.

Your soul is an amazing source of beauty, wisdom and guidance.

But too often, we are scared to trust our inner guidance – or we may not even know it is available to us, or how to tune in to it.

Not only that, but we all carry wounds from life, which can make us shut down and fearful.

In my shamanic practice and my Shamanic Soul Purpose Quest for women, I provide a sacred space of gentleness and compassion where real healing can take place, and the courage and insight to follow an authentic life can bud and flower.

Just one authentic action can alter the course of your life and set you on the path to who you were born to be. Just look at my story!

My life-changing adventure

Once upon a time I was a copywriter in London, writing words for the websites of big companies. I liked playing around with language, but I ached to escape the corporate life. I felt sure there was something else I was meant to be doing – but what was it?

This question haunted me for a long time, but my main focus was dealing with the effects of a traumatic childhood.

Plus, I had no idea how to start changing my life. I was stuck, miserable and unable to see a way forward.

Eventually – in desperation, as I wasn’t feeling any better, despite millions of workshops and therapy hours – I followed a strange urge to go to Peru, to work with plant medicines.

I booked a two-month stay at a retreat specialising in ayahuasca and other plant medicines and headed off, with my travel companion, Paddington.

It was a life-changing decision that led to a year in the jungle, a job at the retreat, a massive opening of my consciousness in the form of a kundalini awakening, and an incredible relationship with plant medicines.

Not only that, but I was plunged into the world of shamanism, and I loved it.

While I was in Peru, the plants told me I needed to leave London. Why? I asked. Where will I live? There was no further information.

When I returned to England, I followed the guidance.

It was scary to let go of the home I had lived in for ten years, without knowing what the next steps were. But I had come to completely trust the guidance of spirit over the fears of my ego.

For two years I had no fixed place to live, and I waited for spirit to show me my next home. Eventually I was led to Stroud – a decision I probably would never have made if my mind were in charge! 

I deepened my shamanic apprenticeship by completing a practitioner training in ecoshamanism. I am also a certified Purpose Guide™. 

I now spend my time between London and Stroud, working in person and online as a shamanic healer and Purpose Guide™.
