I specialize in storytelling. My clients tell me stories about who they are and the life they are leading; stories about health, life, courage, confusion and so much more. They cast themselves in a specific role that reflects and shapes their psyche and their story about themselves. Listening to a person’s story tells me about their hopes, their fears, their insecurities and their strengths. And … Continue reading Therapeutic Storytelling
Spirituality is a creative process and spirit loves being involved in your creations and co-creating with you. The image, name and identity we have for a spirit guide is simply a mental construct; an idea or image through which spirit communicates. It isn’t real. Spirit is energy. Spirit is frequency. Being human we give spirit an identity based on our human, physical experience. Bodies, names, … Continue reading Co-creating your spirit guide
I really love the characters and stories that unfold in my work as a spiritual counsellor. From a psychology perspective, the characters could be thought of as archetypes; universal characters that are familiar the world over, who keep popping up throughout history and in story-telling. Archetypes are personality patterns, essentially, or frequency states in the aura. Each character explored during a healing has a transpersonal, intrapersonal and interpersonal facet.
The transpersonal is the spiritual, larger-than-life realm, so this is where we frame a character as a spirit guide; an intangible character/energy that is giving you spiritual guidance.
On the intrapersonal level (intra meaning ‘within’ the self), the character represents an inner self; some part of your personality that the spirit guide is reflecting, enhancing or representing.
On the interpersonal level (the realm of human relationships), the archetype may also be playing itself out in the world around you, popping up as a character in the screenplay of your life.

(Based on a story told to me by a spirit guide, about a previous life of hers)
The tremors were coming more often now. And they were stronger. The children could see the cracks forming in the stone walls, and the dust was making some of them cough.
“Earth mother is waking up. Don’t be afraid. She will take us into her belly where a new world will begin for all of us.”
She kept her voice soft, low and soothing, relying on her gentle sing-song alto to sway them back into calm. Tightening the outer edges of her aura as it wrapped comfortingly around the group, she disciplined herself to relax the core, smiling a little to herself as they heaved a collective sigh and released some tension.
I work with the spirit medicine of herbs and plant food.
Today during a healing, I was working with this Goddess, Sapphia. She is a personification of the plant spirit medicine belonging to Shatavari, more commonly known as asparagus.
This is a Yin herb, full of moistening, nourishing fluid. She strokes our kidneys, re-filling them with life force after they have become drained by excess or worry.
I was recently in Canberra with my mother, viewing the ‘Gold and the Incas’ exhibition at the National Gallery. On the evening of the second day, I reached out and spoke to spirit because I was feeling intensely moved by the plight of cows. I recognised that driven, almost obsessive feeling; in the past it had been stimulated by guides were were stirring my passion in … Continue reading Si, the Crescent Moon Goddess
I just found this written conversation between myself and one of my Spirit Guides. I can’t find the first two pages, so I’m not sure what the prelude was, but page three begins with Spirit talking about paradox. Spirit: “Your heart and mine are one beat and yet a mile apart. I stand here in the universe and you stand over there and yet it … Continue reading Being where you are
One of my clients recently asked me how she could build a stronger connection with her spirit guides. By the end of the consultation, she was delighted, because she could ‘see’ her primary male guide. I’d love to share with you, some of what we discussed, and the process we used to facilitate a deeper connection.
To begin with, I explained to my client that she needs to meet Spirit half way by engaging her imagination. Spirit is just energy. Guide are intangible and cannot be perceived or understood in our normal human way, through our physical senses. Think of your spirit guides as balls of light. The only reason we insist on them appearing human, is because WE are human.
There is nothing wrong with wanting them to appear human, because perceiving our guides as human enhances our ability to communicate with them….but we need to understand that the idea of a specific body image, shape, sex etc, is a human construct, not a spiritual one.
I love working with spirit guides and in general, I prefer working with them over deceased loved ones because they are specifically focused on the client’s spiritual growth, which really suits me as a spiritual counselor. Spirit guides are like invisible friends that guide your spiritual and personal development as an incarnated being. I like to imagine that they are looking after my birth-plan for me, helping guide me in the right general direction.
Guides assist us in all areas of our lives in order to help us become more well-rounded, balanced individuals. You might have one guide helping you with your relationships and another helping you with your career. You might have one guide teaching you better communication skills and another that is teaching you how to develop financial intelligence and the discipline to save money. Some people say we have a set amount of guides, like one, three or seven. I personally haven’t found this to be true.
