Laetitia is a Kentish Maid born in the small country town of Swanscombe which was once an ancient Viking Settlement. It is also documented that three Swanscombe women were accused of Witchcraft and executed at Maidstone in 1652. Read her research.
She is third offspring within a family of six children. She has Scandinavian bloodline from her paternal ancestors and Romany Gypsy from the maternal side. Laetitia has memories of her mother frequently visiting a gypsy woman who lived in a Vardo and as a child she was fascinated by this woman and her place of residence.
Laetitia visited Cornwall frequently during family vacations throughout childhood to adolescence and fell in love with its ancient beauty. She continued to visit Cornwall until her eventual move here in 2008.
She avoided anything spiritual during her young adulthood in reaction to the indoctrination from a strict Christian religious organization since birth.
In her 30th year, Laetitia began to contemplate her own mortality and explored a Pagan spiritual path from 1996. She experimented with solitary work and about a year later, had the experience of working with Egyptian and Gardnarian groups. She is an Alexandrian initiate 3rd in lineage from Alex and Maxine Sanders, has trained in psychic and mediumship development since 1996 and after years of practice hosted and taught her own developmental magical and psychic groups.

Clutterbuck was born in April 2008. He has lived with Laetitia from 6 weeks of age when she purchased him from the local R.S.P.C.A. His mother had given birth to six kittens on a football pitch and they were rescued from there.
He has all the traits of a Taurean male! Clutterbuck is the first pet Laetitia has had the time to become acquainted with now that her children have their own lives.
Clutterbuck is a talented hunter and rat catcher, a particularly difficult task for cats as they use all four feet to hold the rat correctly and kill it without receiving a bite. He has caught small bats (as he can move at high speed) plus young rabbits and rodents that are presented as gifts upon the doorstep.
Clutterbuck is spiritually aware and will enter the room whenever magical work is afoot!. He explores all accoutrement’s placed upon the hearth and then sits quietly while observing her work.
He is affectionate, loves attention and welcomes clients. Clutterbuck is an asset to her work and life.
