Short Biography
I have been studying palmistry (Cheirology) since the 1980's and during the 1990's  was

very lucky to receive one to one teaching in this. A few years later a lady asked for a hand

reading and offered to teach me Tarot so again I was blessed with one to one teaching. I

went on to teach both palmistry and Tarot in Glastonbury and later on in Yeovil where I now

life. Between 1995 and 1996 I completed one year's shamanic training where I learnt about

regression and soul therapy amongst other things.

Being interested in teaching, I also completed a Teaching English As A Foreign Language

course in July 1997, which has been very useful in all of workshops that  I teach.

I began learning Reiki in 1997 and became a Reiki Master and teacher of this in June 1998. I

like to work both on the body and in the aura when I give Reiki.

I wanted to add some sort of body work to my skills and studied Indian Head Massage in

Glastonbury during 1999 to practitioner level. I work to a routine during a massage but if

there is a particular area of tightness I spend more time on that. Counselling has always

interested me and at Strode College I studied this and received my Diploma In Therapeutic

Counselling in 2000 after doing the RSA Certificate In Counselling In The Development Of

Learning in 1996, the CPCAB Certificate In Therapeutic Counselling in 1998 and the CPCAB

Advanced Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling in 1999. The kinds of issues I have worked

with include low self esteem, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, addiction, grief,

transexuality, coping with change, helping clients find solutions to short term issues, sexual,

physical and emotional abuse, anger management, negative thoughts and feelings and long-

term problems.

Coming from a largely "person-centred" integrative approach to both the therapies and the

readings that I do, the focus is on the client and it is my belief that every person can find

their own healing and their own solutions to whatever is holding them back, and that the

therapist or reader is simply there as a catalyst who is there to enable the client to become

more fulfilled, more healed and more whole. In counselling, simply listening and reflecting

back what the client is thinking and feeling, without judgement is vital to the client's healing

process and this used in combination with therapeutic tools, can enable the client to improve

their life from the mind outwards.

In giving readings, the person's hands or the cards that they choose reflect processes going

on both now, in the past, and potentially in the future, and I believe the client has the power

to change an outcome if they wish to. Often simply by altering the way that we see a

situation is enough to begin the process of positive change. This is a very different approach

to the "fortune teller" type of reading where the client is told that something will happen as

if it is set in stone.
Reiki One Manual I am now offering my Reiki One manual as a pdf file, sent as a series of

email attachments for the cost of £10 or $12 (US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand). This is

ideal for Reiki practitioners and Reiki teachers who would like a manual to give to their

students. Email me for details of how to get one (Paypal required).

Meditation And Healing Group

I am running a weekly meditation and healing group in Yeovil in my therapy room every    

Wednesday from 11am to 12pm. We are working with the beautiful loving kindness

meditation, developing healing ability and giving each other healing- Open to anyone

interested in meditation or healing, whether Reiki practitioners, practitioners of other

healing techniques and absolute beginners. The cost is £4. Email me to book as places are

limited and there are already 3 people.

Tarot Course 2016 This course will be held in my therapy room in Yeovil and is over several  

weekends: 10 lessons of 3 hours each, 1pm to 4pm, including a short lunch break. Each

lesson will cost £20 or you can pay upfront for the whole course which will cost £150.

Classes will be small to allow for lots of individual attention and catch up classes will be

available for people who miss one or two of the lessons. People with some Tarot experience

can come along for just those lessons that they need. Please email for full course

prospectus. If you have done a Tarot course with me you are welcome to come along for a

Weekly Evening Palmistry Course
This course is for 8 evenings of 1 1/2 hours per class, at

£10 per class, or £80 total, and if the course is paid for at the first class, it will be

discounted to £70. At Kim And Clyde Salon, 95 Preston Road, Yeovil. Please bring a

notebook and pen to each class. If anyone misses a class I will provide extra catch up

classes (at £10 each).  The course teaches the building blocks of palmistry (cheirology) so

that you will be able to give a basic hand reading to friends and family. Subjects include the

four elements and elemental archetypes, what cheirology is, hand shapes, passive and

active hands, skin texture, fingers (lengths, bends, meaning of rings, joints, tips,

fingerprints and flexibility), the thumb, chronology in the hand and the major lines (earth,

water, air). You will also take ink prints of each other's palms. Please email me for further

details and full course prospectus. If you have been on a palmistry/cheirology course with

me before you can come along for a donation, but please contact me first.
