I have always had an interest in science and mathematics and qualified with a B.Sc. degree in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry from the University of Pretoria in 1984. Some years later I spent a year studying Astro-Physics through Unisa. Eventually, I changed direction and qualified as an advocate in 1999. I practised as a member of the Cape Bar and Advocate of the High Court for 15 years and wrapped up this part of my life at the end of October 2014.
Since then, and already having had a prior qualification as a Reiki Master Healer, I have spent some time on a personal spiritual journey during which I trained in various other modalities, such as Hypnosis and Zhineng Qigong. My book Choosing to Heal: A journey through time into eternity and back was released in September 2015. The story takes the reader on a journey to my past lives in places like ancient Egypt, Japan and medieval England, revealing all I needed to heal my current life. As I met slaves, monks, knights and Samurai, my journey inevitably led deep into the inner soul world where five spiritual guides assisted me to heal painful physical and emotional aspects of my life, while my spiritual regression to the space between lives provided even further clues to the pattern of the ancient tapestry of my soul’s life. It was an amazing journey and writing about it, sharing what I experienced, was a whole new journey! Find out more about my book. After the publication of my book I presented workshops and spent the rest of my time in my therapy practice in Cape Town and later, Mossel Bay. With the wave of change that came with Covid-19, I closed my by then mostly online practice in June 2020. During the years spent as hypnotherapist and energy healer, I found my way into the world of producing guided meditation recordings, which ultimately resulted in a new career as radio presenter.
It is the dawn of a new era and I decided to spend more time focusing on the work I love, but seldom have time for. After many years of leading group guided meditations as a non-medical hypnotherapist, producing online guided meditations comes naturally to me and this will always be my first love, but nowadays I am equally happy doing voice overs, radio ads, narration and audiobook narration. Writing is something that I could easily spend a lifetime doing, but life has always been just too busy. I am now taking the time to change that and I hope to be able to add many more articles to my blog and who knows, perhaps one day, another book when I have something important enough to share.
