Welcome to Soul Essence ~ Therapy and Life Coaching

My dream is to empower and enable others to be the best they can be, physically, emotionally, spiritually and professionally so they can live a productive, healthy life.

I’m a Mum of 3 adult children and Jojo to 2 beautiful granddaughters. Like most people out there I’ve lived a life of ups and downs. A couple of times my life has turned on a 10 cent coin and gone in a direction I could not have imagined. It was as if someone took the movie script I had written of how my life was meant to unfold and had rewritten the ending without asking me if it was OK. Studying Reiki and counselling, then Social Work and NLP, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnotherapy was my saviour. During the training much of my healing took place when we practiced the modalities on each other and this healing continues today. I am so inspired by what I have learned and the changes it has made to my life. I would love to talk to you about anything you would like to change in your life and how together we can make it happen. Releasing and clearing the symptoms of anxiety and depression, grief and loss and restoring physical and emotional well-being is something I achieve with all of my clients. I also love running workshops to pass on my knowledge so people like you have the tools to deal with life as it happens.

I am a Master Practitioner of NLP, Time Line Therapy™, NLP Coaching and Hypnotherapy, Reiki Master and therapist and a member of the International Institute for Complimentary Therapists. Supporting clients to release negative emotions and limiting beliefs and create their future. NLP has many ways for you to create or change behaviour. It eliminates obstacles, restores and builds energy, and it brings your motivations into alignment, burning through life's obstacles.


Check out the Products page for meditation downloads.  Meditation is a simple and inexpensive way to relax and heal, physically, emotionally and spiritually.  These downloads contain Theta binaural beats to assist with reaching a deep meditative state, promoting relaxation and improving sleep.

Dragonfly symbolises releasing yourself from unproductive illusions that hold your soul’s progression back. The Dragonfly spirit challenges old habits and concepts that box you in. Because Dragonflies gravitate to ponds and puddles, they are creatures of both air and water. This means that Dragonfly is deeply tied to our emotions and our mind.

Soul Essence also offers meditation classes and workshops in Reiki, crystals and vision boards. These are held in a safe space with like-minded people where you can grow and learn, be empowered and discover your true potential.

Whats new at Soul Essence

I’m now working out of a beautiful new space at 13 White St, Waikerie where I have a consulting room and space for workshops and meditation.  I also have a consulting room at

17 Second St, Nuriootpa for Adelaide and Barossa clients along with being

available for Zoom appointments for those further away.

Send an email or inbox if you are interested in any of my services,

more details on my Facebook page.

I attended Health and Healing and Aura Healing training recently and am

now doing further study in hypnotherapy which allows me to offer further services. 

The Health and Healing training has a focus on emotional causes of physical

issues and how clearing the emotional issue allows the body to heal and

regenerate while working holistically with other modalities. I now offer clearing and healing for this with physical health issues including chronic pain.  Once we clear the underlying trauma and stress the body can then heal, leading to a noticeable reduction in symptoms.  I work closely with health professionals as I believe that a holistic approach is best.  

Aura Healing is offered in conjunction with Reiki healing for a relaxing way to release blockages and old energy patterns. Clearing and balancing your Aura and Chakras leaves you feeling peaceful and calm, allowing you to continue your soul journey with ease and grace.

Upcoming Events:
