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 from the maternal side. Here is Laetitia’s mother at the entrance of a Vardo.
Laetitia has memories of her mother frequently visiting a Romany woman by the name of Daisy whose place of residence was a Vardo. The lady and her dwelling was a source of fascination for her during childhood.
Laetitia visited Cornwall frequently during family vacations throughout childhood and adolescence. She fell in love with its ancient beauty and continued to visit Cornwall whenever the opportunity arose until her eventual move in 2008.
She avoided anything spiritual during her young adulthood due to the indoctrination of a strict religious organization since birth.
In her 30th year, Laetitia began to contemplate her own mortality and began to explore a spiritual path from 1996. She experimented with solitary nature work and about a year later, had the experience of working with Egyptian and Gardnarian groups. Laetitia 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 students in developmental spiritual groups.
She is a Mother (and a Grandmother since her late 30s) and the experience of raising two children to adulthood provided the experience to understand clients who need advice for family problems. Laetitia attained a qualification in counselling with Family Matters in 1993 which includes surviving sexual abuse and domestic violence.
She has also attained a Diploma in Crisis and Trauma Counselling in 2019 – see her website Taking the Helm
Laetitia has participated in campaigning work for an organization that exposes sexual and emotional abuse within religious organizations. See Silentlambs
She has an updated Certificate with the Criminal Records Bureau dated 3rd March 2020 that is clear of any criminal records. This is available for clients to view on request.
It is not easy to relocate and begin a new life within a community and her journey has been an eventful one, but she was fortunate to meet Cassandra Latham Jones through an unusual sequence of events.
Cassandra is the Wise Woman of the exquisite and ancient village of St Buryan and has set a fine example of how to work and live within this community. Read more about the Village of St Buryan
Cassandra has taught Laetitia her way of the Cunning/Folk Craft and they have worked together since 2009 and Laetitia has been a resident of St Buryan village since 2010. In the Spring of 2021 Laetitia received a high level initiation with the Old Craft.
On this site Laetitia includes a blog which will update you on her work and community activities.
In Memory of Clutterbuck April 2008 – February 2021
Clutterbuck was born in April 2008. He 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 had all the traits of a Taurean male! Clutterbuck was the first pet Laetitia had the time to become fully acquainted with when her children became adults with their own lives.
Clutterbuck was 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 caught small bats (as he could move at high speed) plus young rabbits and rodents that were presented as gifts upon the doorstep.
