UFOLOGIST Mary Rodwell believes we are not alone. In fact, she makes a living from that belief.

Her ability to counsel those affected by extra-terrestrial encounters is earning Ms Rodwell fans, enemies and money.

Principal of the Australian Close Encounters Resource Network, the Agnes Water resident is acclaimed within her field.

She has debated publicly with Oxford University physicists, and has even won.

The leading researcher in her field, Ms Rodwell provides a service unlike any other.

"I went into counselling about 25-30 years ago," she said.

"My very first experience came to see me. He was a middle aged man very articulate, very intelligent.

"He said, look there's support groups for everything, but for this, they just think you're a loony."

Some 2000 clients later, skeptics no longer phase Ms Rodwell.

"Clients are from all walks of life. Academics, right through to housewives and farmers," she said.

"Children of four, five and six talk about walking through walls and learning things on spacecraft.

"When you've got children talking about this, they don't watch talkshows, they haven't seen alien movies or read the books. They are quite conscious of their experience."
