Oriana’s gift of empathic healing developed early in life, growing up close to nature in the beautiful Devonshire countryside, the seventh of ten children. Life has not always been easy however, and there have been some major tragedies along the way, such as the loss of five members of her immediate family. She is now blessed with two wonderful grandchildren, and enjoys the love and closeness of her relationship with all her children, and those unforgettable friends who have stuck by her all these years.
Her strength comes from her faith and life experience, and the love she shows to all comes from truly understanding people. Oriana believes everyone deserves to be given the chance to live a creative, wholesome life, and to make a difference - even the seemingly unlovable or undeserving. We are all someone's child, and we all need to feel loved and valued from the beginning.

A personal message from Oriana:
As a 'Lightworker', I believe we live eternally when our impact on others means we are remembered fondly, and when we live with an everyday closeness to God. Our soul's light shines more brightly in life's darker places, and the greatest achievements are those which seem hardest to bear at the time but which we somehow find the strength to overcome. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote 'The world breaks everyone, and afterwards many are stronger in the broken places'. Personal tragedy can help us to appreciate each new day more fully, and to remain humble in the face of success.
An old Chinese proverb tells us - 'Before enlightenment, chop wood and carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood and carry water'. I love that proverb because it helps us to see the joy of living a simple, clean life fully immersed in the present moment, in perfect harmony with our surroundings.
One-to-one Coaching can be held anytime either in person, online or by phone.
