I was born in Sardinia, Italy; I had a natural interest in the mysterious and unexplained from an early age and initially pursued studies in Environmental Engineering and Science, however I found that this did not answer all of the questions I had in relation to phenomenon that simply could not be explained by science. Following a Spiritual Healing treatment I received for myself when conventional medicine failed, I changed direction to follow the path of complementary holistic therapy and natural healing.

My journey started when I joined the two year College of Psychic Studies’ accredited spiritual healing course, an incredible experience with like minded people that helped me to make sense of all the unexplained phenomena that I had experienced in life. Graduating as a Spiritual Healer of the College was only the beginning.

The more I learnt about and practiced healing, the more I became interested in different healing techniques and how these could work in combination with each other to give a powerful healing treatment. I eventually became a Hypnotherapist and a Past Life and Regression Therapist with the Past Life Regression Academy in the UK.

In 2012 I trained with Doug Buckingham in London as a Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master and the year after, as a Karuna Reiki Master.

In 2018 my dream of visiting Reiki’s birthplace, Mount Kurama in Japan, finally came true, when I joined the Usui/Holy Fire III Reiki Master class with William Lee Rand. In 2019, I went to the Holy City of Jerusalem in Israel, to train with William Lee Rand as a Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki Master.

At the same time, I became particularly interested in the phenomenon of near-death experiences and the ‘world beyond the veil‘. David Furlong trained me as a Spirit Release Practitioner and Sue Allen was my teacher in Spiritual Counsellor Certification, both training lasted for over one year.

In 2019 I also spend over a year with William Bloom in London studying at the Diploma in Spirituality and Wellness.

The focus of my work is to establish the underlying causes of disease and support a person to bring balance and integration. On this path, the person becomes increasingly aware of their role in the healing process and the steps that are needed in order to bring harmony and balance.

The disease, as we understand it in the West, is very often what impels us to open our eyes in the journey toward self-discovery and full awareness. The illness requires our attention and therefore represents something that cannot be ignored. The essence of healing, which is physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, implies the release of the obstacles that stand in achieving a balance and the realignment with ourselves and the world that surrounds us.

Reiki courses are offered to both beginners and experienced healers, therapists, medical doctors, and complementary health practitioners. Training programmes have been verified and accredited by the UK Reiki Federation and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, and they are also part of the Professional Reiki Practitioner Diploma.

I am a member of UK Healers, The UK Reiki Federation and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, the General Hypnotherapy Register and the Spiritual Regression Therapy Association.

I look forward to working with you and contributing to your journey.
