Linda Thackray - The Face and Body InterpreterWHO WE ARE

Linda Thackray is the director and founder of Finding Magic Within.  

After discovering Face Reading and Psychosomatic Therapy herself through a life-changing session many years ago, she knew that this was the missing link in her training.  Having left her corporate job to specialise as a Face and Body Reader, Linda is now a full-time Educator, Therapist, and Holistic Health Practitioner.  With over a decade in this field, she consults, teaches and mentors students internationally and within Australia. 

“I started this journey as a crisis counsellor working as a volunteer for the Salvation Army Telephone Care Line. When introduced to Face Reading & Psychosomatic Therapy, I knew it was the next major step in my career, and it quickly became a life-changing passion which saw me progress to a practitioner before becoming a registered Teacher of the Psychosomatic Therapy College in 2012”.


Through Face Reading and Psychosomatic Therapy, we work with clients to gain a clear understanding of where they are at in their life’s journey and how they got to be there.  We help discover their style of interaction with others, exploring their gifts, challenges and conflicts, by witnessing patterns that show up in the body through posture, muscle tension or repeated habitual expressions, showing attitudes that can develop into personality traits.   

With this awareness we are able to work with the person and provide strategies and tools to assist with their transformation process.  For those clients wanting to make lasting changes but unsure how to do this, we offer further sessions to explore and adopt healthy daily practices.

The Face and Body Interpreter is the true essence of the work which Linda does.  When many may have lost sight of “what the original problem was”, Linda works with clients to unlock some of the stored emotions and stories which are still waiting in the body to be released. 

Face Reading and Psychosomatic Therapy are not just for the individual looking to personally better themselves. It is a highly valuable skill for professionals, be they health practitioners, therapists, corporate or industry professionals, to incorporate into their sessions/work. Through the skill of Face and Body Reading, they can direct questions to their clients to extract information that they can already see through their face and body, and aid in therapy sessions, negotiations, team building and/or landing deals.  It takes human interactions to the next level through a better understanding of people and they communicate.  


We promise you a better understanding of yourself and others.  Learn what makes YOU the person you are today, your strengths, your gifts and the challenges you may wish to work on.  Understand your habits, pain, recurring thought patterns and life choices.  Some of our greatest gifts are also our greatest challenges, and some of our challenges will become our greatest gifts; but first they need to be recognised.

We will set you on the right path to becoming a better version of YOURSELF. 

“My VISION is to assist others in reclaiming and “finding magic within” and to teach those skills to others so that the ripple effect is wide, and brings greater clarity, improved connections for the individuals and their sense of self, to their families and communities and thereby enriching people through connection”.
