I am a Shaman. I am a Healer. I am a Teacher. I am a Celebrant
I was born to be. Working with both humans or animals.
I am a natural when it comes to connecting and changing relationships within and between humans and animals
I am seen as an Animal Communicator. I talk with animals, they talk to me.
Blue assists me with Equine therapy bringing joy to the lives of many people. As a consequence, together we create change. We enable growth and development of self-esteem, self -confidence and self -worth
When asked "What do I teach”?
My first reply is “Children to be kind adults”.
How do I do this?
Through connecting. In whatever shape or form that takes...
To get a sense of who I am and how I scribe, here is a portion of my story.
Raised on a farm; I have an innate connection with Mother Earth. I learned about the Cycles of Life and Rites of Passage. It wasn’t easy. My foundation stones were insecure.
In an isolated location, the animals became my family, my teachers and my guides. Devastated by the denial of my dream to run the farm, I have found other riches in life because of it. A B.Sc. from Oxford Brookes extended my knowledge in Geography and Geology. With further study I gained a PGCE from Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.
There have also been extensive explorations of America, Africa, Iceland and Europe. I discovered my life partner living next door!
Heart-Led Celebrant Veronika Robinson showed me how to craft and create ceremonial scripts. I catch moments to capture magical memories. I use words which flow from my heart to become softened with age and time, mellowed with maturity and mood when shared with the universe.
As a Psychopomp and Doula, I have been midwife to many. I help spirits pass. I'm a heart doctor, Hedge-witch and inspirational teacher. I give life lessons. I am told I am wise.
I’ve learned that to be human is to experience suffering.
Part of the suffering is to find the joy and happiness which stems from love.
I know this now.
I stay grounded in The Field with The Blue Pony and Tyg the Terrier. Our companions include a family of Muntjac, a herd Roe of deer, Red Kites, Rooks, Pheasants, Rabbits, a Goldfish, and a myriad of other, sometime human, beings both living and in Spirit.
I have a lantern called Hope.
I follow the light she brings.
So that I may bring love, and light, into your life, also.
With many peaceful blessings.
As your wedding celebrant, together we can create authentic, beautiful, bespoke ceremonies, crafted to capture the essence of your relationship, what it is that drew you together; what binds you and what it is that cements your intentions for your future life.
"We begin to say Goodbye to our parents the day that we are born." With this in mind, and a wealth of experience around grief, loss and endings, I write heartfelt tributes to those have lived and will be remembered for who they were and what they left us with.
Our name defines us. From the moment they are bestowed; become ours, what we are known as, then and only then, from that instant, do we start to live as the person we are meant to be.
Life is for living. Often we hear that "We only live once and that this is not a rehearsal." This may be true but at the same time, the more we practise, the smoother it seems to get. Given time, and patience, we can create the life we want. If celebrating those Rites of Passage is important to you, I would love to be a part in the experience you wish to celebrate.
Excited? Inspired? Keen to explore your ideas further?
I look forward to connecting with you.

Elephants never forget...
This elephant has been my autograph since I was about 12 years old. I love elephants and all they epitomise.
Reaching out to your heart so that you can connect to mine.
With peaceful blessings.
