During these times, social distancing is important. I wear a mask during the treatment and hand sanitiser is available before and after the session. Wearing your own mask along to the scheduled session is expected. It’s of course entirely possible to have your homeopathic case taken online (FaceTime, What’s App, Zoom) and the remedy posted.

“You hold the entire universe within you. If we bring all of ourselves to each moment we can really see the fruits of our actions. By living the light of awareness in our actions, we can experience freedom in every moment and erase suffering.”

Deep Healing

Homeopathy is useful for all kinds of problems;

  • Chronic conditions which are often linked to inherited conditions and specific ways people express their disease, these can also include recurring thought patterns and feelings about their life.
  • Individual symptoms – physical, emotional, mental as well as strange, rare and peculiar symptoms.
  • Therapeutic treatment for known diseases and remedies for specific problems such as headaches, coughs and colds.
  • Trauma and acute care – Arnica for bruises, Apis for bee stings, Cantharis for burns.
  • Homeopathy is also really useful for complementary treatments running alongside allopathic medicine for example managing the side-effects of drugs.

A holistic approach means attending to all levels of a person’s health – the physical, the emotional and the mental. It’s necessary to take every aspect of a persons life into consideration. It’s not just treating the disease. Firing bombs at an illness is not the approach of a healer. It’s necessary to understand the deeper reasons why a misalignment has occurred and created symptoms that are destructive and uncomfortable. 

Everyone is unique and our stories reflect this. I may see several people with the same ailment and it’s quite possible though they all have the same problem, they all receive a different remedy or energetic intervention.

First appointments are usually longer to help me understand the symptoms in a deep way. Hearing the complaints about how ailments are impacting your daily life, so I can gather all the information I require to then decide on which remedy to give you or other interventions.

during an appointment

My usual approach is to take the patients case, making notes and asking questions, hearing all that needs to be heard. I then open a sacred space to perform a shamanic ceremony where the patient lays down on a padded bench. I simply cradle the head in my hands, synchronise my breathing with the patient, sometimes it’s necessary to reach under the back for a few moments to help reset energy centres. There’s no other hands on involved, there is no massage, clothes are kept on at all times.

Some feel heat, some receive images and clarity around the problem that brings a renewed insight to dealing with their situation. I give my best with the time available and follow up with a homeopathic remedy which you either receive at the end of the session or 2 days later by post.

People report feeling more themselves and the benefits of this come afterwards as the energetic work ripples into the mental, emotional and physical bodies.

Homeopathic remedies are included in the price. Tinctures if suggested are an extra investment, it’s possible I may offer homeobotanical tinctures, these are great for detoxing and lots of other benefits individualised for the client.

Often I give homework to help integrate the energy work during the session and help assist the healing process.

Soul Walk

A ‘Soul Walk’ is a great alternative to a sitting counselling session. We meet, walk and share. You choose a soul card to reflect and assist you to go deeper. Then choose tarot cards and write a short story (I provide paper and clipboard). The story helps to gain reflection and insights into your deeper soul journey. We engage at the level of the mind and emotions, but take it deeper to the soul level to embrace your destiny and power.

Nature is a great teacher and needs to be included in our life in order to be healthy on all levels. The Earth is our portal through which we grow, learn and transcend, so we always honour the Earth before any ceremony. We take the opportunity in nature to do some guided deep awake meditation.

Together in ceremony, celebration and reflection. This is an opportunity to shed a story, gain new insights and honour what needs to be honoured.

This session duration is 90min with a cost of £45.

A Soul Walk would make an excellent precursor to an hour shamanic healing session either on the same day or a few days later. It would help establish more clearly what energy work, if any, needs to be done.

“Fear is a seed of compassion. To know this, is to embrace all of who we are and embrace our inner fears with compassion and joy. To use this moment in time, as an opportunity to step through a portal into whom we were born to become.”

Trauma Repair

When we’ve experienced Trauma parts of our energy field can become frozen and switched off, this creates a sense of numbness and disengagement for the person. The disengagement can come in a form which can be resistant to change and looking at the issue which needs healing. Both represent an inability to feel the issue. In order to repair the trauma it has to be seen, there has to be an ability to feel the discomfort and be with it.

There are different interventions that I use to help people engage with the issue, gazing can be an incredible tool, a shamanic ceremony can be good to release the frozen energy. There are homeopathic remedies which are great for healing past issues, such as Natrum Muriaticum and Ignatia, but it’s best to take a full case history so the right remedy can be pin pointed.

I often use energy field tracking where the person stands and I sense where there is stuck energy in the light body, this can be extracted with a crystal and healed with fire cleansing. Then we look at the issue on the mental level so that the area will continue to heal.

Of course, we are born into trauma so it’s a little like a fish not knowing it’s breathing water, if you can’t see it, it’s always been there, how are you going to change? In a sense, we’re all traumatised, you don’t have to have been to war or had a violent incident to be traumatised. Often we’re carrying trauma that’s been handed down to us, the baggage of previous generations, so we’re having to engage all these past issues too. With the times we’re living in (Covid and global warming), the added stress, it’s more important than ever that we look for ways as a community to deal with these underlying issues. If we don’t, the result will be more war, more over reactive responses. This is one of the reasons I have arranged the Portals for the Community project to help people in a gentle way engage with our times, hopefully fun too. It’s important that we come together and feel the support of community to help create change. The more we can heal ourselves, the more we heal others too. The more we can feel and bring awareness to ourselves, the more we can feel and not be numb for others. What we do ripples out and impacts the whole, this cannot be over emphasised.

Optimal Health

It can be helpful to come for a cleanse. A special treat, like going for massage. A check-up and a check-in with yourself. Relaxing, invigorating and realigning. It can be like receiving a Reiki treatment (which many are familiar with), but with shamanic work it’s more individualised. If there are no ailments, we can work with what is there. A cleanse can be helpful to look at what might be building up energetically and clear it before it has a chance to become a problem emotionally or physically. So feedback is always given on what is found on the energetic level in the light energy field which surrounds the physical body.

Often situations that occur in our lives – break ups, a change of job, things getting too intense or we’ve been too busy to give ourselves the time to take note of our emotions properly, to sense that unease that’s been growing, going unchecked it will eventually cause physical illness.

An operation can leave trauma to the energy field that needs help to heal properly. Without fixing things on the energetic level it will take longer to heal on the physical. Emotionally you will not feel right either, something will feel off, literally you can leak energy and feel drained as a result. A session can help rebalance and remove energetic intrusions and speed recovery.

The energy field holds all information of past trauma just waiting to be thrown off with the right opportunity. It also holds the blueprint to our wellness.

It’s good to align yourself more fully with what feels right and invest in feeling more empowered and attuned with what you want in your life; emotionally, mentally and physically. To step forward in your life from a place of joy.

Some believe I should offer these services for free. I can assure you my training has not been cheap and it’s been an effort to learn and fully inhabit the knowledge learned. I also have a family. However, I understand these are difficult times for many so please get in touch, it’s possible to offer a reduced rate for those in need and struggling.

It’s of course entirely possible to have your homeopathic case taken online with FaceTime, What’s App, Zoom and the remedy posted.

People can find homeopathy and shamanic practice a bit whacky. When I first got involved with shamanic work, I would be the first to admit it felt a little like Star Trek. But would I really waste my time for the last 15yrs if I didn’t think there was something in this work? I have seen repeatedly the evidence of what I do creating change through ceremony and engaging with a deeper level of reality. Science is now able to back up all that we have seen with our own eyes, with quantum physics we are beginning to understand how it all works. It seems mysterious but I don’t believe in miracles, only things we do not understand yet. Are we not standing on a rock flying through space at 76,000mph and rotating at 1000mph, so what’s so unbelievable?

It is clear to me that there is an intelligence in nature; that a butterfly with tissue paper wings and the brain no bigger than a pin head knows how to migrate 1000s of miles (as with the Monarch butterfly), this is incredible. The intelligence needed to create a human eyeball we cannot recreate with our science, but nature just does it … think of all the millions of tiny animal eyeballs on Planet Earth. There is an intelligence underlying all creation that we can tap into and utilise, indigenous tribes have kept this knowledge safely hidden from religious corruption for generations thankfully, to now give to Western civilisations. 

learning about ceremony

I had a fascination with spiritual pursuits from a very young age. I attended meditation retreats in my early twenties. They eventually took me to India where I experienced shamanic ceremony on a pilgrimage around the Southern temples and shrines. Taking part in Yagya ceremony with Brahmin priests.

From 2005-08 I trained in ancient Peruvian soul techniques at the Light Body School founded by Alberto Villoldo. I travelled to Peru to walk ancient Inca trails with the last of the indigenous tribes of Q’ero.

Afterwards, I continued on a 5 year study of homeopathy, which confirmed further what I had already learned during my shamanic training and solidified further my understanding. Seeing the different angles and perspectives from meditation, shamanism and homeopathy have been key in helping me ground the puzzle of the energetic body and how this invisible realm impacts the physical.

We all understand how fear can create a rapid heart beat and sweaty palms, thus it’s not much further to understand how thought patterns and beliefs impact us in negative ways and create illness. We can’t always see what might be impacting us energetically from inherited energetic patterns. Often it’s helpful to have an outside objective view to shift things for us and bring light to our situation. It’s entirely possible that patterns beyond our knowledge are impacting our life in ways unknown to us until fresh insights can help us shift forward.

I’ve had many wonderful teachers to learn from over the years. Time has seen my understanding expand and deepen, revealing to me how healing happens beyond time and space – ceremony is the means by which this can happen, it’s how we access and hack the Light Body.

I’ve teach groups and individuals the Munay Ki Rites (shamanic initiation rites of passage) since 2007 and I also teach small classes in shamanic ceremony and engaging with the essential. I’ve performed shamanic ceremony for weddings and all occasions over the years.

Let me know if you’d like a shamanic ceremony to mark a boundary in time, it’s a great way to celebrate a special occasion, to generate good connections for the future. Also, ceremony is a helpful way to let bad connections go, so you can move forward freely with grace and honour for all parties involved. I also have workshops where it’s possible to learn how to do despacho ceremony for yourself.
