Annabel Du Boulay

In my early twenties, I was a traumatised, suicidally depressed addict

Then, in 1999, the birth of my daughter with a life-threatening syndrome catapulted me onto a journey of unimaginable depths

A journey that would, ultimately, become my salvation

Through a combination of academia, therapy, creativity and spirituality, I healed and transformed my shadow suffering into my light of gnosis

And I stepped fully onto my path of the Wise-Woman Warrior

Now a successful author, coach, teacher and speaker, my mission is to inspire and empower you to embody your full Soul potential


With 18 years experience as a Transpersonal Therapist and Coach in the corporate, private and voluntary sectors, as well as running my own company since 2009, I offer High-Level Coaching to individuals and teams, designed to empower you to reach your full potential in both your personal and professional lives


With over 30 years of academic research in the Sociology of Religion from a feminist perspective, specialising in peeling back the layers of patriarchal religious appropriation and manipulation of the ancient spiritual teachings of the Rose, Celtic and Avalon Lineages, I offer an extensive Soul Development Programme of Online Workshops, Immersions and Courses designed to empower you on your Soul’s path


With over 30 years of consciously walking my spiritual path in devotion to the Rose Lineage, the Black Madonna Tradition of Southern Italy, the Andean Path of Pachamama in Peru, the Celtic Lineage of the British Isles, and the Avalon Lineage of Glastonbury, I am a Mystic, Priestess and Founder of The Avalon Rose Chapel® – an IPHM Accredited Training Provider of a Priestess and Practitioner Training


Set in Southern Italy, The Serpent’s Tale is a gripping story of a village’s fight to save its wise-woman from the fires of the Inquisition. On an allegorical level, it explores the Greek Myth of Demeter and Persephone, and later Gnostic Myth of Sophia, inspired by my personal experience of nursing my daughter Sophia as she led me repeatedly on the Sophianic Descent and Ascent of the Soul.


My art installation ‘The Healing Womb’ had its debut in 2012, comprising of four archetypal paintings of the Mother of Loss (Child Loss), Mother of Solitude (Childlessness), Mother of Healing (Disabled Children) & Mother of Compassion (Mothering), inspired by my experience of mothering three children, two of whom were born with life-threatening syndromes, whom I’ve nursed through 20 operations


From my experience as an abuse survivor, past mental health sufferer and worker, therapist, feminist sociologist and carer to my disabled children, I am passionate about campaigning on women’s rights issues, as well as challenging the stigma associated with mental health and disability. On my Activist Page, you can view the Charities I support and a Directory of Women’s Rights Organisations.
