About me

Hello and Welcome to infinite healing energy and Path of Enlightenment, do you feel it’s time to Reclaim and Renew your Energy? If Yes and you feel drawn to read on, then please explore my page. You have already made the biggest step in your own healing and self understanding; below I aim to give you some idea about my ways of working as a Therapist.

I am a Fully Qualified Reiki Master/Teacher. I can incorporate different modes of energy healing including Usui Reiki, Faery Reiki, Crystal Healing, Shamanic Healing, Angelic Healing, Chakra Balancing, Intuitive healing, Emotional Freedom Technique and much more, treating the whole person physiologically. I am also a Registered Fully Qualified Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, being a Registered member of the BACP I work to a code of ethics and am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice and Integrity, ensuring the work is Safe and Confidential, I have over 20 years experience working as a professional.

I understand how important it can be to find the ‘right’ therapist, to fit, and create a sound therapeutic relationship. The work is carried out in a comfortable, peaceful and relaxing private therapy room.

A personal note, of my journey / story – I have been working with clients for many years in the healing profession as a counsellor, and have lots of experience in this field, alongside having personal experience of Reiki, Crystal healing, Holistic therapies and Counselling. Then, life events can change our paths, and I experienced a very personal trauma. During this time I began to search for something more, some personal and profound healing – I was offered some CBT therapy at this time and even as a qualified psychotherapist I found that on this occasion this didn’t work for me as it felt a little sterile, whilst I still without doubt believe in the power and benefits of counselling, on this occasion this process just didn’t ‘connect’ with me; this didn’t actually ‘heal’ me….., the search continued, next on the list was Hypnotherapy and whilst this had some positive benefits the trauma kept rearing its head. Then eventually and thankfully I tried Reiki healing, combined with Angelic Reiki, incorporating Crystals and this was a real light bulb moment. This was the beginning of the releasing of my trauma. I took little steps at first whilst still fearful, I worked through the pain and paralysing blocks. These treatments worked for me and have been life changing. Having had a positive outcome I have a resounding interest and passion to help others experience the same as I did.

Feeling spurred on, I wanted to learn more – I got the Reiki bug! I enrolled on Reiki I and LOVED IT. I have attended many workshops including the Angelic Realm, Guardian Angels, Faery Realm, Ascended Masters, Guides, Channelling universal energy, Learning the benefits of healing crystals, Essences, tuning into a higher vibration and it is now my absolute Passion! I feel I was guided to this enlightening place through my own trauma experience, already being a healer as a counsellor, this I feel was just a deeper step, a path of enlightenment and vocation I believe was meant.

I am eternally grateful to my Reiki Master/Teacher. Also, thank you to my guides, angels and helpers for showing me the way. I continue to learn, continue to have treatments, enjoy Reiki shares, workshops, laughter, positive energy and magic. I am passionate and authentic about the work I do and I very much look forward to meeting you.

Reiki Blessings, Love and Light, Namaste.

“Life won’t sparkle unless you do!”

What is Reiki – A Boundless, universal, life force energy, Simple and natural healing method. REI means boundless, universal, higher consciousness KI means life force energy which flows through all things – A Treat to Self. The practitioner channels the Reiki energy which is directed through the hands, this can be given to Self, Others, Children, Animals, Plants, Crystals, Cards and much more. This healing energy flows through the body, removing any blockages, assisting the body to move back into balance and harmony, through chakras (wheels of energy throughout the body), pathways and around the aura (electromagnetic energy field that surrounds people, a ball of energy). A gentle yet powerful technique, Reiki treatments will leave you uplifted in spirit, energized and calmer, with increased vitality.  It assists the body to release stress, trauma, tension, anxiety and fears; promoting clearer thinking. Promotes feelings of deep relaxation and aids better sleep. A healing based on the principle of activating the natural healing process of the client’s body, can be extremely beneficial in aiding recovery after medical treatments. The process rids the chakras of negative energy and blockages replacing them with positive energy. So, restoring physical and emotional well-being, comforting and calming especially at difficult times in our lives; Reiki treatments can bring a sense of peace, centeredness and an increased ability to cope better with life’s challenges enabling a more positive outlook. Reiki passes easily through all materials and can also be given over a distance.

Each person experiences Reiki differently, clients may experience a flow of energy, peace, mild tingling, warmth, coolness and other sensations; maybe seeing colours or visions. Each client will experience something unique, as the Reiki energy will flow to where the client’s needs are. So each treatment being tailored to clients individual needs. One treatment can make a difference, however a course of treatments may be more effective. For example, if a client has any long standing emotional, physical or spiritual issues. Reiki is a healing ‘process’, and will vary from person to person, therefore, it may just take one session, or may take a number of sessions. This is about how You feel and is essentially Your choice. Reiki and crystal therapy is a magical, deeply relaxing and rebalancing experience.

I believe that each person is a unique individual, taking a holistic view on how a person feels and thinks, enabling the person to become more aware of themselves, taking into account the mind, body and spirit. I often hear “Wow, today I feel I have a lot of energy” –this simply means that we are in ‘flow’, when we are tired or burnt out we have depleted our energy and therefore need to re-charge. This is where Reiki treatments help; alongside relaxing and taking care of ourselves.

Further information

Healing can be felt and experienced on many different levels, an indication of a deeper level healing can be called a ‘healing crisis’, possibly leaving clients feeling a little light headed or tired. These feelings are OK and are actually connected to the recovery process, returning to a more deeply healed state.

Reiki makes no diagnosis and is used as a complementary healing method, always seek the advice of a doctor if you are ill. These treatments are not intended as a substitute for medical or psychological care, as are non-diagnostic.  It is not a religion so there is nothing you must believe in order to benefit from Reiki. It is a pure channelled form of healing, it has no association with religion, faith or belief systems - a wonderful way of achieving deep, restful relaxation and healing.

This gives some idea of what I offer, however, not an extensive list, my work is very wide and varied.
I look forward to meeting you, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me. I would like to offer you my best wishes on your journey.

My practice

Reiki Healing Treatment - A stand alone energy healing treatment.

Reiki healing with Crystals – I can incorporate crystals, crystal pendulum dowsing, chakra crystals, sound and wands for healing. The type of crystal chosen will bring those particular crystals properties for enhanced healing. So promoting a higher level vibration flowing through the body, allowing a deep sense of releasing, relaxation and calm, leaving you re-balanced and re-connected. A great Treat to Self! Crystal healing is a lovely relaxing treatment, which has helped me personally, the innate power and energies of these amazing natural resources will leave you feeling re-charged. Reiki and crystal therapy is a magical, deeply relaxing and rebalancing experience. Leaving you with a sense of peace, reconnecting to your body, releasing any stored trauma, and the internal chatter of a busy mind.

Faery Reiki – Reiki healing treatment and faery card reading. A simple, natural and experiential healing method. The symbols and elements are from our Celtic, Norse and Druid ancestors, alongside Shamanic teachings. These are used to focus thoughts and intentions to promote wellness and healing. Incorporating the energy of the 4 elements - fire, water, air and earth. The energy is channelled directly from the Faery’s and elemental spirits of nature. They reveal the beauty and power that sits deep within us, assisting us with magical solutions. You will experience the Fae’s powerful energies, connecting with the elemental kingdom, bringing inner Magic. Allowing a more profound connection with mother earth. Enchanting! Spread your wings and let the Faery in you fly!
“I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams aren’t as real as the here and now” – John Lennon.

Angelic healing – A Realm of possibility! Channelling healing directly from the Archangels. Enabling you to feel relaxed, calm and peaceful; more energetic and alive - essentially more in tune with our higher self.

Chakra Balancing – Wheels of energy throughout the body, going from the crown of the head to the base of the spine. When chakras are clear your energy flows in better harmony and you will feel much healthier. So, promoting a clear chakra system, balancing, unblocking and clearing the energy centres of the body. An example of this can be clients presenting in emotional or physical pain, yet discovering that actually there could be a negative energy block, or holding a pattern deep within. Chakra energy healing can restore these centres of energy - enabling balance, health and harmony.
“Your chakras radiate and receive energy constantly. If you hold negative thoughts, your chakras become dirty with dense, dark energy, and you feel sluggish and out of balance. When we take care of our chakras, our energy increases and we have higher self-esteem.” – Doreen Virtue.

Crystal Healing
A great treat to self! Crystal cleanse/ Chakra balance. I can offer Crystal therapy as a stand alone treatment.  A holistic, non-invasive complementary therapy. This treatment involves the careful placement of crystals on or around the body, and around the therapy room. The type of crystal chosen will bring those particular crystals properties for enhanced healing. Crystal healing is a non-invasive, relaxing, natural and enjoyable process, the therapy itself will offer you a chance to lie back, relax and get in touch with your body's energies so you can leave feeling refreshed, restored and de-stressed.

Reiki for children/young adults - Due to the gentle nature of reiki, this can be helpful to use with young people. Helping to support with low self-esteem, sleeping issues, anxiety or stress. Helping with relaxation and calmness.

Shamanic Healing and Journeying Healing using Shamanic tools such as Rattle, Drum, Bell, Feathers, Voice, Plants, Flowers, Crystals (shamanic dreamstone/Lodolite) or Natural pebbles (huacas), Natural incenses/Smudge – Sage, Palo Santo, Sweetgrass; along with ancient techniques are all part of Shamanic healing. Helping to clear any negativity and energy blockages. Shamanic healing seeks to repair energy damage and remove attachments. Shamanic Psychic Surgery, Medicine Extraction and Soul Retrieval. Work with the etheric double, how to shamanic journey to the 3 worlds. As a Shamanic Practitioner I use a number of techniques, intuition and guidance. I incorporate these into the treatment as to what the client needs for ultimate healing and experience.

SHAMANIC healing is thought to be one of the oldest healing practices, stretching back thousands of years and linking to indigenous cultures across the globe. Essentially an energy-based therapy, shamanism is rooted in the belief that everything has an energy and that, sometimes, work needs to be done to bring back balance. Traditionally, a shaman was an important part of tribal life - a medicine person, said to be able to communicate with power animals, spirits and 'journey' to spirit realms with the help of their own spirit allies. They are also able to call in their helping spirits to assist you in the healing so you get multiple helpers for the price of one. A Wonderful experience. "Walk in Beauty".

Azeztulite Healing - Channelled healing from the Azez, the Nameless light. Brings spiritual light into our energy system and consciousness. Working with an Azeztulite Golden wand.

Essene Healing - Forming a sphere of protection. Healing the aura and chakra's. Angelic. Incorporating Magdalene healing energies.

Healing with Larimar and Cetaceans - Healing channelled from Dolphins and Whales. Working with a larimar crystal, known for it's connection to the ocean.

I offer personal life coaching, with over 15 years’ experience in the field of personal growth and self-awareness/development; as a qualified, registered and professional Counsellor / Psychotherapist and Reiki Master. Holistic/spiritual coaching is a powerful form of life coaching that approaches every aspect of a person’s life – body, mind, and spirit – the whole person. Magical!

Creating a better quality of life! Helping to achieve your aspirations and life goals, a more directive way of working. Changing your mindset and discover what is holding you back. A dream becomes a Goal, becomes a Plan, becomes Action, becomes Reality. Working with various theories and techniques, meaning, my work is underpinned by theoretical principles and qualifications, both holistic, and as a cognitive professional; enabling me to work on personal issues at a deeper level - My style of coaching is a combination of psychological theories alongside holistic techniques - goals, nurturing a healing space, energy healing, increasing energy levels, mindfulness, balance emotions and chakras/aura, creating health and wellbeing, clear energy blocks & chakras, healing any old wounds, intuition, meditation, relaxation, working towards a higher mind/self, a more profound meaning to everyday life, healing the body/mind, raising vibration, visualisation and imagery creating peace, to inspire positive energy/mind, a healthy spirit - spirit being the non-physical part of a person which is the seat of the emotions and character of the soul. Your spirit has endless potential, large than life capacity, and is extremely resilient. Our spirit can overcome life's most difficult challenges, surpassing human expectation, our life force, a transpersonal way of working. It is true to say that it is by going through some of the toughest of times that our soul grows and we learn, develop and transform.

The ‘theory’ bit - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy, Humanistic, Psychoanalytic, Gestalt, Kolb Learning, Kubler Ross Transitional Curve, Maslow, Wheel of life, TA, Johari Window, Mindfulness, EFT, GROW – Goal Reality Options Will; to name a few. Enabling me to work with each person individually to match the type of coaching to their particular needs, at a high level; alongside holistic qualifications. A tailor-made package. “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”.

By choosing me you can be assured of a professional and ethical service. As a member of the BACP professional body, I work to a code of ethics and am bound by its ethical framework for good practice and integrity. Ensuring the work is safe and confidential. Over the last few years one of the changes seen, is that, there now is a strong body of research showing the effects and benefits brought about by a ‘coaching process’; the action of brainstorming and understanding your goals, gain clarity, provide tools that facilitate awareness and a sense of direction. My style as a coach, is in helping people remove any personal limitations in order to reach your true potential. To help recognise and break any unwanted negative cycles of behaviour and empower you to choose how you want to live. How to live courageously, take charge and make your dream life a Reality. “The middle is messy, but it’s also where the Magic happens”. Brene Brown, Rising Strong.

A little information about Smudging – A Shamanic technique, an ancient Native American practice.  Maybe you have a room in your house or office that just feels odd, heavy, dark, stagnant? Space clearing helps in removing stagnant energy and allows a more balanced environment around us. This can help if you have recently moved, or experienced a life change; this really helps in restoring positive energy flowing again, in doing so, clearing anything past or negative. Essences like Sage (sacred herb) and Palo Santo (sacred wood essence) are used in this process, the smoke/oils/sprays from these herbs help to change the molecular structure of the air and energy, allowing a powerful cleansing technique.

A little information about Animal healing/Reiki for animals – Animals can respond well to energy healing, it works in the same way as it does for humans, for example if your pet is feeling low on energy, overexcited, sick, recovering or adjusting – Reiki can help. Subtle differences - the time of sessions can vary as they will take as much as they need, walking/moving away when they have had enough, they instinctively know when enough healing has occurred. It can also be beneficial for the animal and owner to have Reiki, as they can potentially pick up on any stress from humans.
