My Journey

I have been teaching Tanran Reiki since 2001 and also work as an Intuitive Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and Empowerment Facilitator in private Practice (out of the prestigious Golden Door - Elysia, Sydney and the Hunter Valley). I really love facilitating groups and workshops and am deeply committed to my purpose, which is to live and teach Love and assist others in finding theirs.
My Reiki journey began in 2000 when I was so blessed to be attuned by William Bagley, Founder and Vision Holder of Tanran Reiki. The changes that unfolded in my life with and through Reiki were phenomenal, so I started teaching it in 2001 ' then mostly one on ones. For the longest time I had real trouble calling myself a Reiki Master, it just sounded so superior to me. When I look back now I say, it's great that I didn't get the meaning of 'Reiki Master', since that kept me searching without and within. My whole life since Reiki has been one of coming into awareness, learning, exploring and healing.
I can see how Reiki 'put' me on my path ' ever so gently. I've learned many more different modalities along the way and Reiki is always part of whichever seminar, workshop or session I give. It's my foundation that I relax into and trust completely.
When I first started teaching Reiki in groups, I kept thinking who am I to teach this wonderful healing modality? I am such a normal human being with all the normal 'hiccups' in life, sometimes living from a loving state of mind and heart and sometimes still falling into the trap of fear or ego. I realized that being a Reiki Master is not a destination I reach one day but a journey I lovingly take; with love towards myself and love towards all other beings on the planet. Being guided by the Reiki energy makes that so much easier and this is what my teaching is about more than anything. While being in Reiki, I can teach only Love and that's what I happily stand for. For more information you can look up "Who we are" on our website.

We offer regular Reiki Shares (first Thursday of each month) where everyone attuned to Reiki is welcome. As a Tanran Reiki Master I also offer Reiki I attunements for free, as do all other Tanran Reiki Masters.
