Before I became a Complementary Health Therapist, I worked as a freelance graphic designer, creative director and business manager. While a very creative and fulfilling career, I began to get burnt out, and worried about the amount of time I spent in the electro-magnetic fields of computers.

While ill with chronic fatigue, I explored several healing modalities, became a Reiki, learnt massage, Holistic Pulsing, and started slowly healing myself. I started “seeing” the energy fields around living things and humans (auras), and studied Esoteric Healing with Lani Murphy (NZ) and Judy Jacka (Aus) to give structure to what I was seeing and sensing. I began Esoteric studies with William Meader shortly thereafter, continuing this today.


I have studied and practiced meditation for over twenty-five years, and hold the Wellington space for group meditation as World Service with the Triangle Centre, in a monthly rhythm at the Full Moon. I offer psycho-spiritual resources from my diverse experience and study.

CranioSacral Therapy

In 1996 while receiving a session of CranioSacral Therapy, I realised that there was a subtlety my super-sensitive exhausted body really appreciated. It was a revelation – something so gentle could provide such support and lasting results.

I joined a training with the Upledger Foundation (USA) in New Zealand, two weeks later. I studied to advanced levels of CranioSacral Therapy, including pediatrics, somato-emotional (facilitating body and emotional release) and also explored Visceral Manipulation.


I have also studied in the Hakomi tradition (body-centered psychotherapy), especially Trauma, touch and emotion with Kekuni Minton and Cedar Barstow (USA). I continue to read and advance my understanding in the areas of Trauma, PTSD and wholistic approaches to body-centered therapy.

Holistic Pulsing

I became an accredited teacher of Holistic Pulsing in 2000, and I’m active in the Core Management Group with the Holistic Pulsing Guild of New Zealand. The blend of movement in HP and stillness in CS is a constant source of surprise in my therapeutic work.

I live in Wellington, and enjoy a diversity of interests, including gardening, sustainability, swimming, documentary film-making, sketching and painting, meditation, learning, travel, nature, friends and family.
