Deborah Hextall BSc (Hons) MVHF BCMA Reg, BCMA Aff
I live in Pembrokeshire and consider myself very fortunate to have made this beautiful part of the world my home.
I run my healing and teaching practice mainly from home, just outside Haverfordwest, although other venues are used.
My approach to both healing and teaching is very practical and down to earth.
What are Crystal Healing and Energy / Spiritual Healing?
Crystal Healing and Energy / Spiritual Healing is about helping to restore balance and harmony to the subtle energy system. This is achieved by assessing the whole energy field, chakras etc, and then channelling beneficial energy to the area of the energy system where the greatest need is indicated. If crystals are used, knowledge of their qualities to shape or focus the energy is used to ensure their placement achieves the most benefit for the client at that time. Healing can, therefore, help in many situations, e.g. to calm, energise, strengthen, move stuck energy, or release outworn patterns during times of transition or change.
Crystal Healing and Energy Healing are holistic in approach, i.e. working on all levels of the human energy system including spiritual, mental and emotional as well as the physical. I believe healing is complementary to allopathic or orthodox treatment, not an alternative, and therefore should not replace seeking medical advice where appropriate.
Workshops and Courses
I am passionate about increasing people's knowledge of their subtle energy systems, and showing how they can improve their wellbeing for themselves. I offer individual and groups sessions on related topics, some include crystals (because I love working with them!) but owning, knowing about, or using crystals is not a requirement for this.
Topics include, subtle energy management, grounding, clearing (self and environment), protecting / strengthening the energy field, working with crystals, stress management training, self development.
I also offer professional training in the form of a 2 year Diploma in Crystal Healing and Energy Healing. I am an affiliated school with the British Complementary Medicine Association.

What to expect during a Healing Session with me
After an initial discussion I will ask you to make yourself comfortable either on a couch or chair. I may ask you to remove your shoes, and any jewellery that may affect the healing, but otherwise you will remain fully clothed (if removing either shoes or jewellery is a problem for you, you can keep them on and I will work around them!). I will check that it is ok for me to touch your feet at the end of the healing if required to help with grounding.
The session will start with a relaxation exercise. I will then assess your energy field. If using crystals I will then select the crystals to use for the healing and place these around and / or on your body. Whether using crystals or not I will then channel beneficial energies as required. At the end of the healing I will remove the crystals, if used, and ensure that you are fully grounded. I will also allow time for any discussion. I sometimes use sound within a healing, usually via a Tibetan bowl.
You may be aware of the energy during the healing as heat, cold, tingling, an emotional response or thought suddenly popping into your head. It is also possible that you may feel nothing at all during the session but become aware later that you feel different or that something has 'shifted' or changed. Everyone's experience is unique, and indeed an individual's experience can be different across sessions.
If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.
