Welcome to The Dowsing Academy

Dowsing is more popular than ever with people from all walks of life giving it a go and finding it to be a ‘must have’ tool for their life, loves and general wellbeing.

The Dowsing Academy offers you a place for learning and development for whatever stage you are currently at, from complete beginners through to professional and everyone in between.


The Dowsing Academy was set up by Amanda Peet. Amanda first learned to dowse in 1988, then picked it back up again in 2009. Amanda has been a professional dowser for over ten years and in 2018 she started teaching others to dowse either in person or through The Dowsing Programme (an online course). Amanda teaches anyone to dowse for themselves and teaches Emotional Dowsing Techniques (EDT) to Practitioners to use alongside their current modalities. You can find a list of Practitioners who are Approved Practitioners for EDT on this page. All Approved Practitioners have completed and passed an Accredited Course with Amanda.


Amanda Peet, Founder and Trainer of ‘Mind Your Mind’ and ‘Emotional Dowsing Techniques’ is also Author of Mind Your Mind: Using the power of words. This book does not contain information on dowsing, but it does contain a lot of lists of emotions and core beliefs, which form the basis of EDT.



The Dowsing Programme has been helping people to develop their dowsing skills since 2018.  It is an online course available for anyone over 18 years of age to sign up to. It has eight Masterclass Videos and resource sheets you can download. Masterclasses three and Four teach you Emotional Dowsing Techniques (Mind Your Mind with dowsing).  There is also Aftercare and Support in the form of a closed Facebook group or an emailed update.  Scroll down for more details on The Dowsing Programme and how to sign up to our lovely community.

Or should that be Come Dowse With Us?

Join Professional Dowsers Amanda Peet and Jane Taylor as they chat all things dowsing in these amusing and unscripted as well as unedited (!) YouTube videos.


Most people who have heard of dowsing think about finding water with 2 rods, 2 sticks or a pendulum.  Amanda uses dowsing in her day-to-day life and as an investigation and confirmation tool and with clients and during training.
Amanda has been a Professional Dowser since 2009 and is on the council for her local group ‘Devon Dowsers’ which has over 150 members in the South West as well as other distant members from various parts of the world.  She also facilitates the Dowsing Development group for the organisation.
Amanda has taught many people to dowse and in response to the interest from across the globe, Amanda put her course online in 2018.  You can scroll down to find out more about Amanda’s online course, ‘The Dowsing Programme’ and to sign up.
Amanda is asked regularly to run talks with other dowsing groups around the UK, showing them how to use the Techniques in her book, ‘Mind Your Mind, using the power of words’ with their dowsing skills.  Over the years, Amanda has spoken at many events including The University of Worcestershire for The British Society of Dowsers.
