Marisa (also known as Mim), I am the youngest child of a family of 7 children and was born in Perth.

I started my working life as a secretary and researcher in Perth law firms combining it with a love of travelling.  

The following 6 years were spent chasing the sun working in London and Brighton, England in a backpackers hostel, living 4 months of each year in Costa Rica and returning home intermittently to Perth!  I married my partner, Roger and we moved to Margaret River in 1999.  In 2003 we bought a property, built and now co-own and manage short term accommodation.


With our children now teenagers I found time to reflect on what I truly felt drawn to spend my life doing.   It is my love of meeting people of varying backgrounds and hearing their stories - a deep wish to help people find their way to a life of peace and contentment that has led me to search for healing modalities that I believe can assist individuals that are searching for change.  This led to me studying Counselling with AIPC in Perth for 2.5years and training in Reiki with Vicki Marshall (Reiki Master) and Careth Michelle a psychic & medium.

I approach both reiki and counselling in a holistic manner and highly value integrity, peace, honesty and harmony and from that basis, the name - "Shalom Healing" was created for my business.
