I am a wanderer, a consciousness guide, ceremony leader and psychedelic facilitator. 

I bring a unique blend of experience to service, formed from 50 years of a well trodden path.

A journey with many twists and turns, I have  lived in the UK (London and Brighton), The Netherlands, and Nicaragua, and worked and traveled extensively across Europe, The Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.  I undertook my first solo round-the-world trip when I was just 18 and ever since hitting the road has been one of my main forms of contemplative and spiritual practice over the years since.  My professional  experience spans the corporate, non-profit, volunteer and the healing and self-development sectors. I have truly worked from the boardroom to the bush and everything in between, working with CEOs, government ministers, community health workers, digital human rights campaigners, the homeless, the queer community, spiritual seekers and those in search of healing. 

Along the way have been a few serious burnouts, some broken hearts, a coming out and the finding of true love - all of which have contributed to my  personal process emergence and growth. 

Plant medicines and other practices of altered states of consciousness (ASC) have become an integral part of my own life and personal development  journey. I am thankful to them for facilitating a wondrous remembering in terms of my own personal spiritual beliefs and existential wisdom and for deepening by sense of inner peace and presence .  It is my honour to support others on their journeys. 

As a guide, ceremony leader and psychedelic facilitator I enjoy supporting others to develop a more conscious and authentic connection with themselves and what’s around them. I truly believe that healing and broadening horizons at the individual level not only fosters individual growth, wellbeing and creativity but actively contributes to the collective of our society. In 2020 I founded MAGUEY, a practice for healing and growth based in Amsterdam. MAGUEY supports seekers to connect more deeply with Self, Surrounding and Spirit. At its heart are a number of transformational coaching programmes that support those who wish to consciously integrate psychedelics into their pathways of growth. 

I am currently the chair of Guild of Guides Netherlands, the professional association of facilitators of legal psychedelic experiences in the Netherlands. 

I am British by birth but my home is in Amsterdam. I am married to my husband of 9 years, a father to our grown up daughter and also a young  puppy. I am a  lover of nature, stillness, and the unknown. I consider myself (in the humblest of fashions) to be a modern mystic in the making 

I take an holistic approach to support you to move further down your personal journey of healing and discovery and to develop that deeper connection to self, surrounding and spirit. As a trauma informed practitioner, I can assist you at all stages along your (psychedelic) pathway.

I believe we all have our own ability to heal and grow, it’s just at times we have become a little disconnected from that wisdom.  Together we can begin to deepen that connection. We will meet at the place where you are ready and comfortable and having established a trust-based relationship, walk a path of co-creation.

My intuition and presence is my primary guide, and one I hope to awaken in others.  Furthermore the incorporation of nature as our friend and guide features heavily in my personal and professional approach to healing and growth.

Typical components of the support process:
  • Discovery and intake – establishing the basis is this journey, exploring rapport and setting the foundations of the coaching relationship
  • Personal Preparation – supporting you to prepare for a psychedelic or other altered state of consciousness (ASC) experience.  Exploring what has brought you to this point, your background, your intentions, as well as expectations and possible concerns.
  • Practical preparation – supporting you to prepare on a mind, body, spirit level for ceremony.  Building in practical advice on how to prepare for before, during and after your psychedelic (ASC) experience.  
  • Ceremony – For those who are in Amsterdam or can visit, I offer legal psychedelic ceremonies, principaly working with psilocybin in the form of  truffles. 
  • Integration and aftercare – What comes next? Whilst psychedelic/ ASC experiences can support you wonderfully in your healing and self-discovery processes they shouldn’t be considered a quick fix.  You still have to put the work in before, during and especially after your experience. Integration is about becoming the embodiment of your insights. Here we can begin to reconnect with your experiences, sense into them and translate them into practical, lived actions.

Most sessions will offer a somatic and talk based component, as well as moments of stillness and deep presence to really connect with the body’s innate wisdom. I very much enjoy holding space in these silent moments.
