An avant-garde adventurer with a passion for the alternative, my personal life journey has become my method. This is an intuitive method of self-inquiry and aligned action in which I hold multiple perspectives in a cycle of positive risk-taking, honest reflection and conscious self-expression. I call this method ‘Creative Personal Development‘ and I have over ten years experience guiding individuals to ‘find their light‘. Through my programme, they transform their lives from the inside, fully revealing the authentic person within so that that can shine as a beacon for others.
I can lead this method with confidence because I absolutely practice what I preach. I am a positive risk-taker with a history of successful leadership. I have overcome many ‘norms’ and expectations and instead explored many hidden, alternative and taboo paths, taking personal risks and often forging new roads for others to safely follow. My teenage nickname at school was ‘The Oracle’ and in alignment with this, my adult career has shown me to be a predictor of change, a trend starter, influencer and (gentle) disrupter too.
My portfolio over the past 20 years attests to this and my diversity as a provocateur of thought – in both art and science. From guiding ghost-hunting enthusiasts in haunted castles in Transylvania and laboratory ESP research to ‘fetish’ fashion and burlesque theatre. I do the daring stuff in life, long before it becomes socially safe. From taboo and outre arts to transpersonal psychology, neuroscience, consciousness research, meditation, holistic healing, ancient mystery schools and comparative religion, I am always on a personal development journey, trying new things and new ways.
I have genuinely been highly successful as an art magazine cover model, international burlesque comedienne and producer (actually leading the UK movement itself), TV paranormal investigator and alternative wellbeing content creator, community leader, entrepreneur and author. All whilst these subjects were very much taboo and yet to become popular culture. As an advocate of the misunderstood and overlooked, I have also experienced peer, public and press dissent – as well as praise – and so can help others to appreciate the importance of controversy and to develop the resilience required for modern public life too.
I have adopted many lenses, finding immense perspective, inspiration and insight to share. Best of all, each adventure has helped me to create new personal development opportunities for others. My previous clients and partners, include BBC television and radio, EMI, The British Library, Dennis Publishing, The Armed Forces and many more.
As well as a wealth of experience living what I preach, creating and delivering workshops and courses, and twelve years as a guide and mentor, I hold:
- BSc (Hons)
- PG Cert.
Advanced Practice for Mental Health Interventions
- PG Dip.
Social Science Research (Parapsychology)
I am also a Sekhem Reiki master and have trained in many mind-body disciplines.
