About

Hi, I’m Sue…a nurturer, reiki master, sound healer, singer/songwriter and author. I’ve always felt guided to assist others to ‘feel better’ and from a very young age have been aware of the energetic world around me. I believe that healing and happiness begins with the recognition and acceptance of our own divine spark. It’s my calling to guide and support you on your path to inner harmony. 

Drawing on over 25 years of personal practise and research into wellbeing, energy healing and sound I offer deeply insightful, empowering and individualised sessions. My warm and gentle approach to nurturing and self-healing is reflected in the safe and supportive space I provide for my clients. Along with private reiki, sound healing and soul guidance sessions I run workshops, nurture groups, chant & chill sessions and retreats. I’ve been engaged by organisations such as Barwon Health, Royal Children’s Hospital, Uniting Aged Care, St John of God Hospital, Bellarine Community Health, The Song Room, Blue Bird Foundation, CHIP and Clonard College to facilitate singing and nurture workshops to support staff, students, patients and carers.

Over the past 13 years I have also worked in schools and kindergartens in the Geelong area providing fun and educational workshops for our youngest singers and music makers. Group sessions and private singing lessons focus on singing for enjoyment, well-being and building confidence. My  CD ‘I Can’t Stand Still’ has been embraced by both children and adults alike for its joyous, feel good, uplifting energy.

The recent release of my first book You Matter offers practical, self empowering and calming activities for children’s well-being. It can now be purchased at your favourite bookshop.

I’ve been recognised internationally for my contribution to well-being in health care settings and have professional qualifications in Reiki, Yoga Nidra Meditation, Music and Singing.

It’s most important to me that I offer authentic, practical and heart based healing sessions and workshops that nurture your mind, body and spirit. My clients comment that they always leave feeling so much better than when they first arrived…music to my ears.
