As far back as I can remember I have been on an extraordinary journey through my ordinary life. I believe this to be the way for many beings in our world today. Some wonder what is the purpose of this life, some search for their individual purpose. Many have a vague soul-stirring or ravenous hunger to “Know Thyself”, which pulls them onto a road more and more travelled and an extraordinary journey through their ordinary lives. It is, and has been for more than 30 years, my privilege to meet, walk, support and guide for part of that journey.

Born in the north of Ireland, I came of age during the rise of the civil rights movement and found my commitment to nonviolent means of resolving conflict. As my life continued I found the same nonviolent principles applied to the resolution of conflict not only between countries and cultures, but also in personal relationships and transformational work with the self.

I have travelled the world working with individuals and groups teaching and supporting personal and transpersonal growth and transformation, incorporating all the resources I have gathered from many traditions of healing work.

I have an eclectic background having been involved in teaching women in politics how to bring their authentic presence to each task, working as an Emergency Medical Technician in Boston, USA. I have studied Addiction Counseling and U. Mass. Boston and Hakomi, Body Centered Psychotherapy, Shamanism from both the Celtic and Native American traditions, as well as several mystical traditions including Christian and Egyptian. In 1996 I spent time in India working with Mother Theresa’s Missionary Sisters of Charity at her home for the destitute and dying in Calcutta. My passion for the dying to do so with dignity and to support them on the bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds as they leave their bodies was ignited. This work I continue today as a Death Midwife and volunteer at Milford Hospital, MA. USA where I volunteer as a Compassionate Companion to sit vigil for those whose death is imminent.

Since 1994 to the present day I have been involved with Barbara Brennan School of Healing, working with the Human Energy Consciousness System and graduated in 2000 as a teacher. I have been practicing and teaching healing and transformation through this system at BBSH Miami, Austria, Japan and England. I was Dean of the School for 2 years, and have a private practice in Holliston, USA.
