Bernice Cockram grew up on a farm in rural Devon, UK. Even though she now lives in a city, she spends a lot of time in the countryside, visiting Dartmoor and walking around local woods and exploring the local beaches. She worked for many years as a secretary before giving up work to raise her son. Just a few years later, her life started moving in a different direction when she discovered crystal healing and self-development. Nowadays, Bernice likes to keep herself busy. As well as being a crystal therapist, having a part-time job, and running a stall at the local market, she enjoys learning to play the harp, British Sign Language, and expanding her knowledge on crystal healing.
