Dr. Mary Jo Bulbrook is a spiritual/medical intuitive and founder of TYLEM™(Transform Your Life through Energy Medicine). TYLEM™ is based on her distinguished 36 year career as a university professor and clinical specialist in psychiatric mental health nursing.

From 1974-1984, she was a key figure in the development of world-renowned family therapist Virginia Satir's teaching organization, Avanta Network. Drawing on their twelve years together, elements from Virginia's teachings and philosophy were integrated with Dr. Bulbrook's holistic nursing theory "Healing From Within and Without".

Over the next decade, Dr. Bulbrook's therapy training evolved into the "Energetic Healing" program. In 2004, the title of the program was changed to its current name of Transform Your Life through Energy Medicine (TYLEM), representing the growth and expansion from the original model. Today the work continues to advance worldwide.

Over the last three decades, Dr. Bulbrook has been a pioneer in Energy Medicine. She began teaching and practicing Therapeutic Touch and Touch for Health in the 1970's and moved to teaching her own energy material in the 1980's. Her work was recognized in 1989 when Dr. Bulbrook received Canadian Holistic Nurse of the Year Award.

From 1990-2004, Dr. Bulbrook was active in the leadership of Healing Touch. She developed both Healing Touch and her own program in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Peru, and Chile, as well as throughout the US and Canada. Then she was on the board of directors of the Association of Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP) for 5 years followed by board member of the Touch For Health Kinesiology Association (TFHKA) for three years.   She has collaborated with international healers such as Rosalyn Bruyere, South African Sangoma Credo Mutwa, Aborigine Elder Bob Randall, and Maori Tohuna Rose Pere. In 2013 she hosted her own radio show with Voice America called "WISE CHATS" THAT ran until November 13, 2013.  The shows are still available to listen to free of charge.  From this rich background, she has created a highly effective and easy-to-implement model of advanced psycho-spiritual healing.
