For a long time my energy sensitivity and empathic traits made me uncomfortable, because they made me feel different from everyone else around me and gave me the sense that I didn’t belong. Embarrassed about being different, I hid my abilities from the world and tried my best to fit in. That didn’t work out so well.

Nowadays I have a very different perspective of my abilities and I no longer see them as a handicap or a curse. They’re a blessing for which I am extremely grateful. They saved my life when multiple health crisis threatened my survival, and they led me to learn energy therapy. Now that I’m ‘out of the closet’, so to speak, I actively develop these abilities and use them to help others heal.

I’m now a fully qualified Biofield Tuning Practitioner and call myself a ‘Transformation Therapist’ because I also work as a transformational portrait photographer. That's someone who uses styling and lighting techniques to help clients look their very best, or sometimes completely different. If my life had a theme song it would be called ‘Transformation’, because its woven its melody through my careers as a fashion designer, filmmaker and photographer and my conscious awakening.


Being a shy person and having always worked behind the scenes, being so publicly visible has taken some getting used to, because it's so out of my comfort zone. The irony is that as a photographer, a large part of my job was coaching shy people how to look relaxed in front of the camera! It seems that the Universe has a sense of humour. 

Biofield Tuning is a sound therapy, so I was really surprised (and confused) when it found me. Up until then I had devoted myself to working with light and had no knowledge of sound as a healing tool. Now I realise it was my missing puzzle piece. Sound and light have a very special relationship - all of life is transformed by their frequencies.

Being a Biofield Tuner is a bit like being a detective, code breaker and interpreter all at the same time. I listen to the bio-feedback the tuning forks give me when I bounce sound off someone, then interpret that code, which are like clues, to figure out what's going on and what needs to happen. By using coherent frequency and my sensitivity, I'm able to detect and clear the distortion in the client’s energy field created by undigested emotions and trauma. When that stuck energy is released, harmonised and restored back into their system, clients leave with an increase in voltage, a sense of release and relief and a feeling of being lighter and brighter.

I invite you to try Biofield Tuning for yourself. My therapy studio has a breathtaking view of the lush green Waitakere Ranges in Auckland and the herbal tea is free. If that’s too far to travel, don’t worry, I also do distance sessions.

I look forward to meeting you.

My Philosophy

In Japan there's a saying from Zen philosophy that goes; "Mizu no kokoro", which translates to "A mind like water." But it actually refers to a state of being that mirrors water's flowing, reflective and adaptive qualities. Because the intelligence of the mind includes the whole body and our biofield, perhaps a more accurate translation is...


"Be like water."

If we cultivate calmness, our mental, physical and spiritual health will benefit. Inner peace also greatly increases our immunity, vitality, awareness and intuition. Have you ever heard the phrase, "I feel it in my waters?"  It means to have a 'gut' feeling about what is yet to happen. To me it means sensing the ripple or vibration of something approaching. It's also the way a lot of insights come to me during Biofield Tuning session with a client. 

"The mind is like water, when it's turbulent, it's difficult to see. When it's calm, everything becomes clear."

- Prasad Mahes

Typically my first task as an energy therapist is to help my clients 'be like water' so they're calm and can bring their awareness to their bodies and 'check in' with what they're feeling. Once calm, many of my clients  are surprised and amazed to feel energy moving in and around them for the first time. It's both a reassuring and powerful sensation and one they want to feel more often. It's not supernatural, its just natural.  After all...

...we are 70% water.
