Thank you for visiting

Soulful Living is about embodying our sacred purpose in life which is to Be our True Self and Enjoy a harmoniously fulfilling life! 

As a Shamanic Healer & Intuitive Guide, I support your journey to Wholeness by helping you identify what is and what is not in alignment with your true nature and create a positive shift in your life. I also offer Clinical Hypnotherapy, Reiki, Abdominal Massage and other traditional energy healing techniques to help rebalance and harmonize mind, body and soul.


My main area of expertise is supporting women to restore their feminine nature and reconnect with their feminine body & womb consciousness. I also support men embracing their inner feminine to find Wholeness.

My Background


I come from a corporate background in HR, Training and Business Transformation with extensive experience in designing and delivering large-scale training programmes on Diversity as well as Lean / Business Process Improvement Techniques. I have predominantly worked in big companies such as United / McVities, The Maersk Group, Shell Oil UK, ADP UK, The Diamond Trading Company (DeBeers) amongst others. Although I enjoyed my work there, I increasingly felt like there was something missing or not quite right in my life until I started experiencing physical health issues as well as the first signs of depression. Through the holistic therapies, I soon realised that I was 'living someone else's life' and the reason for my unhappiness was that I wasn't myself.

All my life choices since then as well as my therapeutic approach today are deeply rooted in direct personal experience of personal transformation and soul awakening through major life transitions. Now I am truly happy that I can benefit others navigate the innerscape of their True Self and restore harmony in their lives. 

Continuous Development

I am absolutely passionate and committed to developing myself further personally and professionally! I am continuously learning something new and I take great pleasure in understanding (analysing) how different modalities work and then creating (synthesizing) new "whole-listic" solutions. 

I am trained in Core Shamanism (Michael Harner approach) as well as Mexican and Andean/ Inka Shamanism combining traditional energy healing techniques that rebalance the energy in the body with shamanic journeying (a form of guided visualisations for healing and guidance through altered states of awareness). In addition, study and use practices from the Universal Tao System, incl. being trained in the Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage. I am also a Usui Reiki Master Teacher. 

My work with women combines personal realisations and teachings received through numerous training courses incl. menstrual cycle awareness with Red School, Rebozo techniques for pregnancy and postpartum support with the traditional Mexican Midwife Angelina Martinez and many other wonderful teachers. I have also trained as a Red Tent Activator with DeAnna L'am and I have a completed a Counselling & Therapeutic Techniques course with the Women & Girls Network.

I have also trained on Clinical Hypnotherapy with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis and the University of West London.
