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 England and eventually living 4 months of each year in Costa Rica, England 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, training to become a Reiki Master with Vicki Marshall (5yrs) and intuitive work with Careth Michelle a psychic & medium and now Sound Massage with Ute Coleman using Peter Hess Singing Bowls.

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.
