I have spent most of my life working with and using natural energies. I respect nature and try to live in balance with everything around me. I have a biochemistry degree and a Post-Compulsory Certificate of Education and Training and I am a qualified astrologer and companion animal behaviourist. I am also a reiki master. I have studied tarot, auras, crystals and natural magic. I live with 3 children (one of whom is autistic), 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 horses, 11 chickens and 4 ducks (at the moment!). I am a qualified dog trainer, being a member of the Coape Association of Pet Behaviourists and Trainers and of the Pet Dog Trainers of Europe and have studied T-Touch and using herbs with companion animals. I own and run Merkarna (natural herbal products to promote health and wellbeing) and work closely with my sister, Donna Maxine, the renowned tarot reader.


Astrology has been used for thousands of years to gain insight and knowledge about ourselves and perspective concerning our situation.  We use it for guidance and advice, for self-awareness and help in understanding the actions of others. A professionally cast astrological natal chart can tell you so many things, from karmic lessons of the past to what the future holds for you. Use this ancient technique to help you get the most from your life and your loved ones. Gain insight to any problems and get advice for any decisions you need to make.

I have practised astrology for over 30 years; let me help you in your quest for self-awareness.

I also run ‘Astrology for Beginners’ workshops and courses – please see my new website for details


Animal Therapy


I am a fully qualified Companion Animal Behaviourist and Trainer and a member of the Coape Association of Pet Behaviourists and Trainers (CAPBT) and the Pet Dog Trainers of Europe (PDTE). I have also studied with Sheila Harper at the International Dog Behaviour and Training School.

Training problems can be addressed on a one-to-one basis, or you can join classes to work with your dog in distracting environments.

I also hold Chicken Keeping workshops which are aimed at anyone new to keeping chickens and will give you the confidence to start on a very rewarding (and addictive!) hobby. However, even if you have kept some hens for a while you will also benefit from the course as it provides helpful tips on making hen keeping easier.

It has long been known that negative states of mind, emotion and spiritual unease can affect the way life is experienced. It is recognised that when we feel happier with life and ourselves then our sense of well-being increases. Merkarna aura and chakra sprays are the easiest and safest way to help restore balance and help support the energy system to bring about this positive change.

The energies contained within the herbal talismans also have a positive effect on your own energy, and will help to bring about the outcome you desire.

I can make other products to order.     Please contact me for more details
