These are the spirtual philosophies that guide my life and my work, even the way I think about psychological or emotional difficulties. I believe that we are all contained within a much greater whole and the problems that manifest in our lives can be understood within this broader context. Using this framework, I am no different to you. Whilst we may have different struggles, we are also human beings of equal worth and value and it is from this perspective that I practice and serve.

About Me.

 I am originally from Lancashire in the UK but now find myself in a very special place in the world called Nova Scotia, Canada.  

I have always been interested in people, their emotions and deep conversations, this led me into my psychology career which I have been studying and practicing for over 15 years.  Over the last 3 years, I have become increasingly interested in the healing power of spritual experiences which have dramatically enhanced the healing of my own inner wounds.  Because of these profound spiritual experiences, I now work to blend psychological and spiritual approaches to enhance the innate healing powers that exist in us all.

The path towards inner peace doesn't come from getting what we want, but from remembering who we are.
