After graduating from Reading University in Film, Drama and English, Diana developed a portfolio career in the Mind Body Spirit and Health fields. Since 1990 she has written professionally for the media and has progressed into editing and providing manuscript feedback and mentoring for authors.
Her experience as a presenter and mentor includes work as a computer trainer for a recruitment agency, self-esteem mentoring with the Kairos Foundation, mentoring with the American Tarot Association (ATA) and Tarot Association of the British Isles (TABI), as well as talks for local groups. Currently she provides talks on Tarot at Champneys spa in Forest Mere on the West Sussex/Hampshire/Surrey borders.
The variety of her training and experience has provided a sound basis for Diana to be able to offer courses, classes and mentoring services, with focuses such as: Nutrition, Astrology, Tarot and Writing.
Diana was the in-house Astrologer for Spa World magazine from its launch and has focussed on a wide variety of Mind Body Spirit subjects, as a Features Writer and Columnist, for Spa World, Easy Jet In-Flight magazine, Forturi.com, Star Temple, HabMag and Holistic Shop.co.uk. She is currently a Freelance Editor with the Writers' Workshop and writes a horoscope column for Free Spirit, Best Mediums and the Circle of Professional Clairvoyants. She has worked on a number of collaborative projects in writing and media, including radio work.
Alongside writing and other media and presentation work, Diana has developed a private practice providing holistic services, which seek to address the multiple needs of mind, body and spirit and bring each client greater harmony. This began, in 1990, with astrology chart consultations and tarot card readings. She has since trained in Reiki and crystal healing. Meditation practice and psychic development training also feed into the quality of her readings, which are currently available online in email format or to clients of Champneys Forest Mere spa (formerly, readings took place over a four year period at Stepping Stones holistic centre at Cambridge Place, Farnham, where Diana also ran a Nutrition programme and practised Reiki and Crystal Healing). She takes a down to earth approach to readings, whilst working with "old school" style abilities such as clairvoyance, clairsentience and clairaudience. Her focus is foremost on empowering clients through honesty, integrity and a respectful and ethical approach.
Diana's approach is unique in that she integrates an understanding of all elements of the Mind, Body and Spirit circle of human experience in her work.
She is a long-term member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain and a Co-founder, Endorsed Reader, Trainer and New Reader Assessor with TABI, the Tarot Association of the British Isles. She has been hired to give readings at private parties and a variety of public venues, including Festival Place shopping centre in Basingtoke during their Valentine's Look of Love promotion (see the heart poster image on this website!).
Through travelling her own healing journey, Diana has gained a deep appreciation for the interconnectedness of mind, body and spirit, which she has endeavoured to extend throughout her work.
