I was born in South Africa but have lived most of my life in London. I trained as a teacher, counsellor and group facilitator and have had many years’ experience setting up a training school, teaching, tutoring, supervising, and moderating counselling courses.

I am the author of 'QI Gong: the Chinese Art of Working with Energy', 'Looking for Doris' my first novel published by 'The Tenth Bull' and 'Han Returns to Earth'.

I studied Kabbalah for 7 years with Warren Kenton, and am currently a student with the Diamond Approach School (Ridhwan). I have been with Ridhwan since 2001 and am in a peer supervision group with members of the school. I am a member of the B.A.C.P.
