Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant | Oxfordshire & Global

As a result of living in a house with many unexplained disturbances, including a ghost, Brenda started to investigate subtle energies.

Her research led her to Feng Shui, how energy flows through a space and how it affects people and places. Brenda discovered that if energy is perfectly balanced in a property, it can have positive life-changing effects.
