Dale started her professional career in 1970 - her speciality being Cardio-Thoracic surgery. She was in charge of the theatre and assistant to Prof. Chris Barnard who performed the world's first heart transplant. The untimely death of her father led to her entering the engineering field, which resulted in many successful business ventures in the steel industry. In spite of Dale's entrepreneurship and allopathic background, she has always felt the pull of holistic and natural modalities. In addition to her business ventures she studied Adv Reflexology, Craniosacral therapy and gained Reiki Mastership. She completed her BA Psychology with Jung as her elective. Her Bodytalk journey includes Bodytalk Fundamentals, Adv Practical, Principles of Consciousness, Macrocosmic Bodymind,Matrix Dynamics, Access for Animals, Finding Health and Structral Integration Concepts. She also completed Mindscape, Advanced Mindscape, Breakthrough, Breakthrough Practical, Breakthrough 2, and Free Fall. In 2008 she qualified as a Mindscape Instructor.
In 2009, Dale left the steel industry to fulfil her dream of working full-time from a busy practice in Cape Town, teaching Mindscape and working with humans and animals alike, out in nature, or in her practice.
