D.M.Astrol. ND. BSc. Dip.Ed. Dip.Herb.
At age 30 I resigned from regular employment (1983) and headed off backpacking to points unknown for 3 years during
which time I developed an understanding of various esoteric disciplines such as yoga, meditation, palm reading, chakra
healing, numerology, hand writing analysis and face reading.
Finally in 1986 I found my way to the ancient science and art of Astrology and its incredible capacity for providing
a greater understanding of who we are — from birth potential, through growth direction, to the impulses that influence our daily moods
The founder of modern psychology Carl Jung expressed the notion that we 'should strive to be who we are' and in regard
to the relevance of astrology as a tool and guiding light he stated that: ‘Astrology represents the sum of all the psychological knowledge
.’ Carl Jung used astrology in his practice and the Briggs Myers Personality Test
is based on Jung's astrological understanding.
commenced a formal study of Astrology in 1990 via correspondence with the Mayo School of Astrology
(London) - completed my Certificate
of Astrology in 1993 and, after a break for family and financial reasons, recommenced formal studies with the Mayo School in 2007
- gaining my Diploma in July 2011.
In more traditional fields of education I received a Diploma in Forestry in 1973; a Degree in Forest Science from Melbourne University in 1976; a Diploma of Education in 1988 (Melb. Uni); and Diplomas in Naturopathy, Herbal Medicine, Massage and Hydrotherapy from the Melbourne College of Natural Medicine in 1989.
