About us

As a compassionate practitioner of 25 years and spiritual Shamanic psychotherapist and teacher of 15 years, I have had the great privilege of working within palliative care, NHS, and now private practice.

In this time I feel particularly humbled to have witnessed people's lives transform from the trauma of:

  • Grief
  • Relationship issues
  • Childhood wounds
  • Sexual abuse
  • Narcissistic abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Feeling not good enough
  • Divorce
  • Mother/father issues
  • Bullying to name just a few.

To heal the trauma is to heal the fragmented self, as you may be feeling shame, guilt, humiliation, isolated, depressed, anxious,  disassociated,  disillusionment to name just a few.  

You have the power to heal, change and transform.

I hold a confidential, safe compassionate space to enable you to feel comfortable every step of your healing process. The sessions are tailor-made according to your needs the process is dynamic, powerful, gentle, expansive, opening, releasing and transformative. Ultimately, allowing you to step into your self-empowerment, self-confidence, self-acceptance, self-love...If you are now ready to change  and wish to heal on the deeper issues that are holding you back in life;  please, feel free to call for a free consultation call Astara

Here are a few testimonials:

Shamanic treatment session
In the course of my life and search for non-pharma relief from life's trauma and physical ailments I have experienced most therapy disciplines with varying results.

What I experienced with Astara in a single session was extraordinary and profoundly life-changing. I had been hiding and avoiding confronting sinister personality traits designed for protection but were inhibiting and were preventing fulfilling personal relationships and true love with honour and integrity.

I subscribed to science-based wellness methodology and ridiculed the existence of higher consciousness or power to influence human and earthly states of being.

I perceived in utter amazement Astara's ability to channel then harness this force to suss me out A to Z as she spoke perfectly synchronised and with the gorgeous sound of trinket bells and chants with the occasional lovely scent of burning - and I was mesmerised.

When the truth was exposed (which I had cleverly hidden for a lifetime) - it blew out and I was purged and felt the release which was OMG. I experienced a sense of freedom like no other, like being released from chains that had bound me in slavery.

She brought me back to reality...  WOW

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you Astara and step out a new man, a new being 

Chris the Surfrat from ZA

Had a chronic shoulder problem, whilst I was recovering from breast cancer. I  also had breast reconstruction through receiving the BOWEN TECHNIQUE, it helped me enormously with recovery after the operation, more energy, eased all discomfort. My shoulder problem is now pain-free. Thank you Astara and thank you BOWEN.

Mrs. L. Price

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I can never thank you enough. You are a very special lady, I feel much stronger, and I have my life back on track. I do not get IBS anymore; I have no aches and pains in my body, which I used to get all the time.

Mr L. Moore.

I can never thank you enough; I am so amazed how my life has changed since I have received the SHAMANIC HEALING. I am so glad I met you.

Mrs J. Fudge

Thank you for being there,
Through every laugh, through every tear.
You helped me not to be scared,
About the things that I feared.
Thank you for the love that you have shown,
When you knew I would have blown.
You are an important person in my life,
You’ve helped me deal with my strife.
From time to time you always listened,
And when you did so your eyes always glistened.
You never put me down,
And you always knew how to turn my frown upside down.
Thank you for being there for me,
And letting me be who I want to be.


Thank you for the SHAMANIC session; I feel it heals my body and mind, as I feel calmer and less anxious. You haterrificing CLAIRVOYANT abilities and are a caring therapist st has known for many years. I would not go to anyone else for treatments.

Mrs J. Lovatt, Surrey

I started receiving BOWEN treatments after my husband had some BOWEN treatment from Astara for Sciatica that cleared up straight away. So I went for BOWEN to help not just with ear and neck problems but because I’d lost enthusiasm for life- life was a struggle. Since receiving BOWEN treatments and SHAMANIC sessions, things have changed, and now, my health is better. But I feel I’ve been given a  whole new lease of life.

Astara is an excellent therapist, and I just handed over my problems and trusted her to give me the treatments necessary for their solution. This she did, and I can’t thank her enough.

Mrs H. Kay Surrey

Astara is an excellent professional. She has helped me discover myself through her CLAIRVOYANT readings and guided MEDITATION. Her expertise in the art of SHAMANIC healing is second to none. Since meeting Astara, I have been able to connect fully to my source of truth, wisdom and self-awareness. I am very grateful for her guidance and can highly recommend Astara.

Mr P Grout London

Having had a bad back and various other health problems for the last 30 years, I tried the BOWEN treatment on holiday. On returning home to Surrey, I found this amazing lady called ‘Astara’ after a few BOWEN treatments; my body was solid and upright, and my posture was the best for many years. Having spent much time and money on various therapies, the BOWEN proved the only one to have any lasting benefits. Thank you, Astara.
