As a result of living in a house with many unexplained disturbances, 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.
Over several years she trained with various teachers and qualified with Grand Master Raymond Lo (pictured with Brenda), eventually offering her own Feng Shui consultation services.
Brenda is also the founder of the Come Alive School of Natural Health and Wellbeing, helping people to make positive changes in their health and life through Nutrition, Holistic Stress Management, Feng Shui and Holistic Health.
“Thank you once again for your kindness and patience. I am so glad that I met you. You are an inspiration. I have a favourite saying which I’m always repeating when we are discussing the flat, “Brenda says ….” It makes us smile.”
