I was born in Australia, grew up in Ireland, Spain and England. I am Irish by nationality. I am married to Omar, who is from the West Bank in Luxor, and have five children, and two grand-daughters. I am the originator of a healing system called The Gaia Method which is based on ancient Mother Goddess Mysteries and is a method of healing the Soul of the Earth and its people through nature. When I am not working with other people, I love doing research. I trained as an archaeologist for three years in the University of Winchester and also did many years training as a psychodynamic counsellor specialising in Rape, abuse and Domestic violence. I am a 'Master' of quite a few Reiki modalities and also a Magnified Healing teacher. I have done too many spiritual/healing workshops and trainings to mention! I have travelled to many places to do environmental healing and in the process rediscovered ancient knowledge. An ongoing process. I am currently writing, travelling, spinning, knitting and creating, and living in Gurna on the West Bank in Luxor, and in Winchester with my daughters and granddaughters. Bridging the two countries energetically.
