My journey with Holistic Medicine began in January 2014 following redundancy from my work in administration of 30+ years. I felt within that my life needed change, a different direction or path which would bring excitement and passion into something I loved to do.
All my life I’ve had spiritual experiences and always felt drawn to practices which were natural and holistic in nature, especially healing. Now I was in a position to pursue my dream.
It was my daughter who found the School of Natural Health Sciences on the internet and just guided me to take some courses and see how things went. I started with Stress Management, Reflexology and continued with Anatomy and Physiology, Advanced Reflexology, Colour Therapy and Iridology. The courses were so informative and enjoyable and being able to study at my own pace was a huge benefit, so I was able to balance it with my home life. I also trained in the beautiful art of Reiki and Indian Head Massage locally.
I was totally absorbed in Holistic Therapies and found my passion in healing. I learned Reiki First Degree, Second Degree, Master Degree and finally Teacher level. I felt I was totally on the path I was meant to be on. Intuitively I felt I was able to help others physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
So, in March 2015, I decided to start my own Holistic Business and run it from my home in Fleetwood, Lancashire. This was all new to me and I just trusted that I would be guided. However, I also needed to make sure I stayed focused on the reason I had started this business, which was to help people.
It is now 2021 and I have learnt so much since starting my business nearly 6 years ago. I am so passionate and dedicated to my work. I understand so much about people now, through experience and a deep understanding of how we, as humans, live and operate, how we think, feel and what motivates us to live the way we do.
At our core we are all the same, we strive for happiness, contentment, peace and most of all love. Our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self are all interrelated and for optimum health and wellbeing all must be functioning equally. We all know that when we are physically ill it also affects us emotionally and mentally.
My role as a Healer, Empath and Holisitic Therapist is to intuitively listen to my clients, bring healing and guide them on the best way forward to bring their lives back into equilibrium.
I have been naturally blessed with the gift of healing and always work for the highest and greatest good of my clients. I feel so blessed and fulfilled when a client comes to my home struggling with either physical, mental or other issues and leaves so much lighter and happier than when they arrived.
I am very easy going and like to make each client feel very welcome, calm and peaceful to thoroughly enjoy their chosen treatment in a relaxed atmosphere. They are able to open up and feel valued as a person knowing that I will do everything in my power to help them feel better.
I have had numerous times when people have come to me very poorly and left feeling very well, experiencing no more pain. Sometimes it’s a gradual process, as healing is not always instantaneous, but a gentle journey back to being their authentic self.
I cannot imagine my life doing any other work than I do now. I work from my heart and always have my client’s best interests at the forefront.
My advice to anyone thinking of pursuing a career in Holistic Medicine is to follow your heart. If you are drawn to this path for genuine reasons and not just for monetary gain then I would say go for it. Follow your dream and help others along the way.
