Credentials and expertise

I am currently a student in Colette Baron-Reid’s Oracle School.

I completed 4 years of formal shamanic training with Chris Luttichau’s Northern Drum Shamanic Centre – where I specialised in divination.

I am a Certified Angel Guide, taught by Kyle Gray.

I am an alumna of Art2Life’s Creative Visionary Program.

In 2021 I was awarded a three-month poetry mentorship with Pascale Petit, during which I completed a collection, When Gabriel Is A Bird, of visionary poems about the experience of spiritual emergency in an otherwise ordinary life, and in which birds are agents of transformation.

I write short fiction, have performed twice for Stroud Short Stories, and have work in various anthologies.

Several years ago I taught myself to read Persian so as to translate poems from Rumi’s Divan-e Shams.

Once upon a time I was convinced I needed a proper job, and gained a Diploma in English Law from the Open University, and Chapterhouse qualifications in proofreading and copy-editing.
