I trained as a N.Z. Registered Nurse. Qualified in Multiple specialities both in N.Z and overseas. I worked overseas for 20 years, in cross cultural and multi philosophical environments. I was brought up with a knowledge of human energy fields and the complexity of these. Specialising in Operating Theatre work added the dimension of cells and gave me an excitement which lasts to this day. Returning to N.Z. facilitated my beginning an extensive training in Healing Touch, a structured programme originating in nursing in the U.S.A. This brought my two worlds together – cellular and energetic. I became a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner and then a Certified Healing Touch Instructor. I have been practicing since 1997. It was very important to me that the training had a strong Ethical background as well as Standards and Codes of Practice.
