My Story

My introduction into the world of healing came in 2004. A pregnant colleague of mine had asked me to help her as she had been experiencing persistent back pain for months and was now at her wit’s end.
In desperation she said to me “Berry heal me!” Feeling for her I started to massage her back and intuitively I held my hands over the affected area for a few minutes. She jumped up asking what I had done as she had felt this blast of heat and said that the pain had gone. We were both stunned.

Although I have always felt empathy for those around me, it had never occurred to me that there was a way to harness energy as a tool for healing people.  My life at the time was pretty ordinary.  I was working in sales and did not have any knowledge of the metaphysical world, but from that day forward I have not looked back.


I read, explored and studied Metaphysics, Meditation, Life alignment and various other healing modalities where I discovered this innate ability to channel energy through my own electromagnetic field onto that of another. Every day I continue to expand my knowledge and my abilities so that I can help others with their physical and emotional well-being.  


My practice, Clear Living Reiki, came into being that same year. I work from a relaxing and peaceful space in the Noordhoek and Constantia areas of Cape Town, as well as doing distant healing for my international clients.

Beyond the healing, I do coaching, Reiki courses and workshops on intuitive development. These I run in person and online.

My Approach

I like to start the process with a 90 minute session, where we discuss the intention for healing, be it emotional, physical, mental or spiritual.  Once the intention is set the healing process begins.  This takes about one hour. After the session we would discuss what came up for both of us, what we felt and experienced and then we would map out the healing journey going forward. Ideally 3 - 4 sessions are required for best sustainable results.
I encourage clients to continue this healing path once they leave my studio. Being empowered and creating a spiritual routine, will bring a sense of peace, relaxation, self-love and connection - the same as they would have experienced during the healing session. I assist my clients by helping them make positive changes that will bring more joy and peace into their everyday life.

As this work is done through energy and does not require my client to be in the same room as
me, I am able to do distant healing on anyone anywhere in the world. The results are the same
– it is as if you were right next to me.

My Philosophy

I do believe that we create our reality and we are the masters of our lives.  That through intention, prayer, meditation and spending time alone and in nature, helps us to find; meaning, clarity and a connection to our inner peace.


Our challenges become opportunities for growth - there is always a silver lining and it really comes down to how we react in certain situations. Changing your outlook and how you see yourself and others can be life changing and bring about peace, joy and harmony with less fear and suffering.
