a word from the founder:

I am passionate about developing people’s second senses so that they can have real experiences of the numinous presence within Nature: to hear the voice of Mother Earth, the Old Gods, the Ancestors, our Loved Ones Departed; to understand the hearts and minds of animals and to hold thought conversations with them..”

My vision is to help heal the relationship between humans, animals and the natural world by raising awareness of the universal language by which all animals communicate with one another as well as helping people to deepen their relationship with the numinous presence of the divine in nature. 

I have been training people in the Art of Seership for over twenty years and in the Art of Animal Communication since 2009, knowing that all of us have access to the universal language by which all beings communicate. This language is our birthright and gives us a deep sense of belonging to the vast community of other beings with whom we share our lives. 

By deepening people’s connection to the timeless wisdom of the natural world and to our own beautiful shamanic traditions, I offer participants a safe and balanced way to develop their Sight.

Through my teaching, workshops and healing practice, I help people to deepen their understanding of the mystery of their own natures and to access the well of wisdom and divinity that is within each one of us, enabling people to stand in their own authority, their own Sovereignty.

The path of druidry whispers to us of the divinity within all beings; reminds us of the law of the sacred – that all things are held within a natural order – and speaks to us of the importance of an Otherworld from which we are separated but by a thin veil. 

Over many years, and by the steady application of the sacred arts of meditation and spiritual practice, I became a seer. Because of my deep love for these traditions and the desire to assist other to develop their seership safely, I founded the Druid College of Seership. As a result, I now enable others to discover these ancient arts for themselves. 

Druidry shows us a way Home.  Its sacred traditions are held for us in their perfection in the Otherworld just waiting for us to rediscover them. At the same time, the old Celtic tales of myth, ballad and legend litter our path with clues and affirmation. And for that, we have those prudent ancestors to thank, those who, in their infinite wisdom, wrote down the stories of a dying oral tradition before those stories were lost forever.

I have served my local churches as a platform medium and have a passion for demonstrating the art of animal communication to public audiences. These demonstrations of animal communication have attracted much media attention and I have appeared on TV, Radio and in the national press, both determined to spread awareness that animals have non-human personhood and are intelligent, sentient beings able to communicate their own wishes and point of view and setting out to provide their human families with personal evidence that humans can truly talk to animals.

I am a graduate of Equine Guided Education, (CEGE), having trained with Ariana Strozzi, one of the USA’s pioneers of Equine Guided Education. I have more than twenty-five years experience in shamanic practice, a Certificate in Pastoral Care and Counselling, a degree in Politics and Social Policy from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and a Diploma in Art and Design. 

I use the term ‘seership’ to encompass the whole range of the many applications of the ‘second sight’. For instance, the art of animal communication: holding a ‘thought conversation’ with an animal; the art of mediumship or ‘spirit communication’ – holding a thought conversation with a ‘loved one departed’.

My greatest pleasure comes from helping to lift the ‘veil’ between the worlds for others, helping people connect more deeply to the divinity within, Nature, the Otherworld, the plant & animal kingdoms. 

I feel a enormous sense of privilege to be part of this huge web of life and to belong to this vast array of other beings.

My inspiration and solace comes from the exquisite beauty of natural world and the love that is in the hearts of all beings. I live in a beautiful place in the South West of France with my family of animals and now centre to the Druid College of Seership.
