Frequently Asked Questions

How did you start your feng shui journey?

The book was by Simon Brown, called “Practical Feng Shui”. At the time I was working in the mining industry as a Research Chemist, my daughter was on the way and I was looking for something more in life than just work, eat, sleep, repeat. From that point, I became almost a Feng Shui and New Age junkie, devouring information on as many topics as I could, including but not limited to Feng Shui.

What made you turn Feng Shui into your profession?

It was a kind of natural progression. I used to do the houses friends and family for practise while I studied. I started a part-time business in 2004 just by leaving my cards at a local new age shop. 

Do most people only call for Feng Shui services when they encounter difficulties?

Majority is yes there were problems before they called, mostly to do with money. There are clients who have had me help their relationships, some for fertility, and some for helping to solve health problems.

What’s one thing on your Feng Shui journey that did that you didn’t expect?

Just the sheer number of people out there who are honest and hardworking that are struggling.

Modern society has made it more and more difficult just to maintain the status quo, let alone get ahead in life. This is without even taking the pandemic into account.

In your opinion, what is the most important part of Feng Shui?

Getting to know the client’s situation and where they would like their life path to lead towards. 

From there, knowing the BaZi Chinese Astrology for both the Lunar and Solar methods gives me insight into their individual opportunities and challenges. 

Once this is complete, I interweave their Feng Shui directions with the landforms and compass calculations to see what quality of Chi they are receiving and how I can improve it. 

The reality is that there is no real “most important” part to a good Feng Shui consultation, every small part counts towards a bigger whole.

What makes you feel inspired?

I love hearing from clients and students when they have a breakthrough moment such as a health problem that goes away or a sudden increase in wealth. When everyday people get the chance to make a leap forward is the most inspiring thing of all to me.

When I get this sort of news, it motivates me to refine my knowledge and skills even further.

What are three books on Feng Shui you’d recommend?

That’s a difficult question, and depends a lot on the knowledge level of the reader. 

I think everyone could do with a copy of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Feng Shui by Elizabeth Moran and Master Joseph Yu. This gives a great primer into the world of traditional Feng Shui.

Eva Wong’s book “A Master Course in Feng Shui” is a bit more complicated but still accessible for beginners and intermediate levels.

Thirdly a great book for BaZi learners is Derek Walters “Chinese Astrology”.
