Your loving wishes for your rites of passage can be crafted into a truly unique & beautiful service. I perform life-rite ceremonies such as hand-fastings, namings and funerals.
“Oh my! What a truly awesome evening we had for our handfasting!
A special thanks to Gabby and Paddy for being our Celebrants. You made such a special effort for us and we can't thank you enough.” – G.T.
Would you like a sonic soundbath?
I retune physical, emotional and spiritual energies through pure sound using gongs, voice, drums, and other instruments.
“I had a 1-1 sound therapy session with Gabriella last week.
I had the most amazing, inspiring and relaxing time. I cannot recommend highly enough.
Treat yourself to a little space away from it all – you will not regret it.” – T.C.

“Gabby started to sing and tone, it resonated deep within me and called me back to myself.” – Sunday Soundbath participant
“A safe and magical atmosphere for us to move our bodies freely and expressively. Though unsure to start with, I soon let myself go – my body leading me! I also enjoyed the follow up activity using pastels to create images and words on paper. A wonderful evening with wonderful people. Thank you!” – Ruth
“I have had the most emotional, uplifting, therapeutic, magical, spiritual weekend birthing my very own medicine drum. Words cannot express how I truly feel, but I am so grateful to everyone who was there, embarking on their own journeys or leading us through the process.” – J.H.G.
I put my heart and soul into my life work. And my work is to help people on their journeys.
My own journey began in the 1990s. A near death experience and other intense initiations led me to a variety of therapies including Sound Therapy and Sacred Drumming and drum making. Whether working with individual clients, convening workshops or working with vulnerable people, children and families, I integrate therapeutic work at all levels.
At the request of friends, I became a celebrant, often with my husband, Paddy. My work draws on my background as a sound therapist, especially with my singing voice, and I use ritual to bring the sacred into very special memorable ceremonies. I also love to lead people with community singing.
I help people at the end of their earthly journeys too. I have supported people to write their own funeral wishes and ceremonies, well in advance, so that everything is planned and taken care of. I am part of a team of facilitators in a local death café.
The more I follow my intuition and immerse myself in these worlds, the more aligned I become with my true purpose. I am blessed to have had over 25 years helping others!
