Elisabeth was born in Vienna in 1957 and spent her formative years in Austria. With a love for culture, the arts and exploration of new horizons she travelled to India for the first time, at the age of twenty. On this trip she met her Tibetan Soul sister Tsering Dekyi la, which led to a lifelong passion for the Tibetan people and their culture. She has travelled extensively all her life, studying different religions and cultures.

After a period of working in catering management mainly in countries behind the then iron curtain, which provided her 'practical' healing and counselling training, she spent five years running a organic farm in southern Ireland. There she taught cookery in adult education and facilitated a twelve strong women's-group.

At the age of thirty she left Ireland to move to Cornwall, England, training as a spiritual Healer with the NFSH (National Federation of Spiritual Healers, England's largest Healing organisation) and parallel to that took a counselling education with Exeter University. She subsequently founded the first Natural Health Centre in Maidstone, Kent, run a private practice (ever since) and became a Tutor for the NFSH.

After four years in Kent she returned to Cornwall and added a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy, a Diploma in Curative Hypnotherapy and Reiki to her disciplines. Elisabeth has facilitated workshops, self-healing/self-development groups and meditation classes for over fifteen years, has tutored on various healing courses and now teaches her own 'Ray of Light Reiki Training'.

She is the founder of the 'Cornwall Wheel of Light Healing Centres Project', a co-founder of the 'Sharing the Light group' and co-founder of the www.holisitccornwall.cou.uk website, all of which are community orientated projects in Cornwall.

Over the years she has appeared on local Television and various Radio stations in England.

Elisabeth is currently living in Cornwall enjoying nature, walking and swimming and makes jewellery to balance her other activities. She has a great love for music and has composed and performed the back- ground music for her CDs. Her other lifelong passion is photography and you can find her photographs on the covers of her books and CDs.

Born a Gemini, the star sign of communication, she loves facilitating groups and enjoys this aspect of her work most. Elisabeth believes in an integrative, grounded, practical approach to spirituality, endeavouring to ensure, that a body, mind, emotional and spiritual alignment is achieved.

Her' mission statement' is: I endeavour to provide a safe inner and outer space in which healing is allowed to take place, safely and unhindered. To facilitate the self-empowerment of my clients/workshop/group-participants, to allow them to remember who the truly are, namely GOD, is my ultimate aim. As such I am nothing but a conduit, a channel for God's energy to flow through me (hopefully!) igniting the sacred flame of the soul within the hearts of my Soul brothers and sisters on this lovely planet earth. As such the main focus of Elisabeth's work is always the healing of the SELF, as in essence, that is ALL THERE IS.
