About me


My name is Tanya. I live in Cornwall with my 9yr old daughter and Slinky the cat.

I moved to Cornwall 12yrs ago to follow my dream, I've not looked back since. I've been learning how to use and work with energy for quite a while now. Over the last couple of years, I have been integrating the therapies I've learned, as well as taking a degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Previous to that, I spent 8yrs working for the Jamie Oliver apprentice chef programme. It was my job to look after the welfare and transitional support for the apprentices, trainees and graduates, providing them with support, advice, guidance and counselling. I loved this job. Seeing the young people turn their lives around after everyone had given up on them was just incredible. I'm a true believer in that everyone deserves a second chance, sometimes a third, forth.....however long it takes!

I decided to opt for voluntary redundancy after the awful recession hit and since then I've been in private practice, living life and studying.

Reiki is part of the vibrational world and I absolutely love it. I'm an Usui Reiki Master Practitioner. My other therapies include crystal healing & sound therapy. I’m also a consultant for Neal’s Yard Remedies. Reiki, crystals and sound all work in perfect harmony with each other, mix those up with some beautiful essential oils and you have a winning formula. I will often combine my therapies.  I call it an integrated way of working!

I believe vibrational (energy) medicine/healing should be understood by the masses; it won't be long before the Western medicine world endorses its therapeutic properties. Vibrational medicine/healing is very much a part of our future. More and more doctors are now realising and coming to terms with the fact that a lot of physical illness is brought on by an imbalance of the whole body, not just the physical but the mental, emotional and spiritual body. Energy healing treats the WHOLE body!

Reiki is healing, harmony and balance for the body, mind and spirit.

In the 1920s a Japanese Buddhist priest, Dr. Mikao Usui, rediscovered an ancient way of healing with life force energy, creating the Usui System of Energy Healing, this is what we know to be Reiki.  Reiki is a safe, non-intrusive hands-on/off healing technique.  It is a holistic system for balancing, healing and harmonising all aspects of the person - body, mind, emotions and spirit - and it can also be used to encourage personal and spiritual awareness and growth.

Reiki penetrates through the body’s natural energy field.  A person is in a much healthier state when their own energy is flowing freely.  Energy can become blocked, there are many reasons as to why this may happen.  Blocked or underbalanced energy can contribute to unhealthy physical, mental and emotional conditions. Dis-ease!
Reiki can remove these blockages and balance the body’s natural energy, resulting in improved health and well-being.

Reiki is not a substitute for medical or psychological treatment; It can support it. Think about how psychotherapy addresses on a cognitive level.  Reiki can help by shifting energy on a cellular level. As chemotherapy seeks to destroy cancer cells, Reiki aids in lessening the side-effects such as fatigue and emotional worries. Reiki supports and enhances other therapies,

Reiki is accomplished through gentle touch or with my hands slightly above the body, the choice is yours. You will remain fully clothed and a blanket will be used to keep you warm if necessary. A warm and soothing energy flows from my hands into your body, releasing tension, creating deep relaxation that will facilitate healing. The energy used is not mine but the universal life force that flows through all of life.

I was trained to Reiki Master Practitioner status by Christine Star from Westar School, Plymouth. If you would like to know my lineage, please get in touch and I will share these details with you.


Crystals were my first love, I was taught by Sue Weaver in Cornwall and hold a certificate accredited by ACHO. Crystal Healing is a gentle but powerful healing technique that can help heal, nurture and balance when there is a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual imbalance. Everyone can experience crystal healing, it is safe for everyone, including the elderly, babies and children, pregnant women and those in a fragile state.

Correct placement of crystals on the body can promote emotional and mental harmony. During this state of inner harmony, the body has the perfect conditions to naturally heal itself, producing healthy re- growth of tissue and cells.

When you first come for a treatment, you will spend time in a relaxed atmosphere so we can have a chat and I can get to understand why you have come. You'll be asked about relevant details about your past history, lifestyle, work, relationships, family and medical history. This will help me to get an all-round picture of where you are right now and it'll help me to complete a picture of the underlying causes behind your problem.
After our chat, I'll ask you to lie down if you can, or to recline, fully clothed. I'll help you to be fully comfortable. I'll then make an intuitive assessment of your energy to determine which crystals will help to balance your body’s system. Based on your energy, I'll select crystals and then place them on your body.  I might place the crystals on the chakras, sites of pain or discomfort, in the hands, or around the body in the energy field. Throughout the treatment, I'll be observing your energy and I may choose to change or remove the crystals as your energy changes, eventually being removed when I feel that balance has been restored.

A crystal healing session can sometimes bring up emotions or memories of experiences from your past, some of which you may have forgotten about. This is part of the healing process. I'll be with you 100% of the way and at any time you feel uncomfortable, I'll be there to support you.


Sound Healing is one of the oldest forms of healing known to man. We're now realising how powerful sound can be when used for healing.

Sound healing offers the possibility of a drug-free way of treating pain and illness.  It is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the mind, body and soul.

The use of sound is now being recognised as an extremely efficient healing method, Using sound vibrations to heal can be backed up by the scientific proof, the natural law of everything that exists within our universe is compiled of a mass of pure vibration, this includes the human body and its energy systems.

As Albert Einstein said - “Everything in Life is Vibration”. Check the science out for yourself, go to the world wide web and do a search on 'everything in life is vibration'.

When you arrive for your treatment I will ask a few questions regarding your medical history and your current state of health. This will give me a good indication of where to direct the sounds and which sounds and combinations to use. You will then be made comfortable in a lovely and peaceful space, then all you need to do is relax and enjoy as the wonderful soothing sounds are played around you.

There are different ways to use sound, part of the work I do is to work with tuning forks . I may start by using the 174Hz tuning fork to comb and cleanse your energy and then I would use the 528Hz (DNA repair) to balance and realign your energy centres. For a much deeper experience I would use the Solfeggio tuning forks to realign and balance your energy. Paying particular attention to areas of concern.

You may prefer a sound bath? Let me surround your mind, body and spirit with sounds & frequencies.
