In 2007 while I was in walking Mana Pools in Zimbabwe I felt an inner shift – a soul shift. By end of the year I had resigned from the corporate world having no clear plan other than to travel solo through South Africa and take photographs. By 2009 I knew that I had to open a healing practice. When the knowing landed I felt fear as to how this complete change of direction would impact my life. Yet I knew that not following this path was simply not an option.
For as long as I can recall, my goal has always been to have inner peace – to have the ability to close my eyes and feel peace and contentedness encompass my soul. To simply just ‘be’. So when it came to naming my healing practice “Inner Peace Healing” was the obvious choice.
Over the years the offering at Inner Peace Healing has evolved as I’ve studied different healing modalities. With hindsight, I can see now that each provided the foundation for what came next.
My wish is that clients leave Inner Peace Healing, after a healing session or a workshop, with a sense of flow and inner peace.
After completing a Business Science degree (Honours in Marketing and Economics) at UCT, I worked happily in the corporate world at Woolworths for 22 years. My time working on projects, with user groups, coaching and training people provided a good grounding when it comes to facilitating Family Constellations Group Workshops and running Constellation and Munay Ki Journeys.
It is now my 11th year of facilitating healing. Over the years I have been blessed to have wonderful teachers who have shared their knowledge and skills.
I attended my first Kundalini Yoga class in 2008. It was here that the penny dropped that we are so much more than our physical bodies. It put me on the path of opening Inner Peace Healing.
Subsequently attending Level 2 modules of “Mind and Meditation” and “Authentic Relationships” with Pritam Khalsa of 3HO South Africa.
When I opened Inner Peace Healing in 2010 I offered bodywork. Soon I realised that my gift lay with energy work rather than bodywork. It did, however, provide a perfect opportunity to study the body and how stories and beliefs can manifest as discomfort and dis-ease in the body
Although I no longer offer regression and hypnosis sessions, aspects of what I learnt form part of sessions. When a client needs to know about a past life these are shown to me during a healing session and shared with the client.
Despite Crystal Resonance being one of the first modalities I engaged with it was only in 2014 that I really “got it”regarding the power of the frequency of crystals in the Crystal Surgery protocols. Crystal Surgery forms the basis of all Energy Healing sessions.
I attended my first family constellation in 2015 with Niall Campbell. I loved the incredible shifts that his modality can bring about. It complements the Energy Healing beautifully. I have graduated as a Facilitator with two different schools – one focusing more on Movement of the Soul and the other on Classical Constellations. Then studied the more recent work of Bert Hellinger – New Constellations. I use the style of constellation that best suits the client and the issue presented.
In addition to the teachers mentioned I’ve attended workshops with Francesca Mason Boring, Sarah Peyton, Stephan Hausner, Karin Haussin and more. I am currently attending classes with Pia Storm Kalhof to learn to combine art therapy with Movement of Spirit Constellations.
I am deeply drawn to Shamanic Work of South America which is about being in harmony and in connection with Nature. From North America, I learnt about Soul Retrieval and healing drum journeys. From our African heritage, I draw on the deep respect for one’s Ancestors and the Land.
While studying the various healing modalities I have come to realise that deep within each of our subconscious and our soul is that healing ability. We have to open our hearts to tap into the innate wisdom, deeply trust and share it.
The photographs on this website were taken during my travels. Most of them on my visits to Mana Pools – the place where the seed for Inner Peace Healing germinated. When I imagine standing under these magnificent trees or watching the flow of the great Zambezi River my heart opens and I experience deep stillness and I smile. I hope that while looking at these images the essence of Mana Pools weaves magic for you too.
Mana Pools is a National Park in the north of Zimbabwe bordering on the Zambezi River.
