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).

Tarot Course 2023 This course consists of 10 lessons of 2 1/2 hours each. Each lesson will

cost £20 or you can pay upfront for the whole course which will cost £180. This is a very

comprehensive course including aspects of counselling and running your own Tarot practice.

This course is also available as an online course which costs £150 and includes several

feedback sessions which can be done over Whatsapp, facebook messanger, email or possibly

zoom. Please email me for further details.

Palmistry Course 2023
This course is for 8 classes of 1 1/2 hours per class, at

£15 per class, or £120 total, and if the course is paid for at the first class, it will be

discounted to £100. At my therapy room in Yeovil. Please bring a notebook and pen to each

class.  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
