Known for leading group Soundbath meditations, you can read their individual stories below.
I think my journey to holistic therapies was in my blood from the moment of my birth. My Mum was an Accupuncturist, Physiotherapist, Reflexologist & Chinese Herbalist. I rarely saw conventional doctors as a child, as there was often a natural remedy in our house that meant I didn't need western medical intervention.
My dad was a Sports Physiotherapist and by the age of 12, I understood about meridian lines, the benefits of homepathy, cider vinegar and was familiar with the crystals that were dotted around our house. It's of little suprise I ended up on this path really.
I have been a certified & insured Holistic Practitioner for over 13 years, having become attuned to Usui Reiki in 2006. But have been working with crystals and various forms of divination since my teenage years.
Reiki has very much been an intrinsic part of my life and has led me on a wonderful journey and exploration of healing. I later went on to become a certified Reiki Master/Teacher, Bach Flower Remedies, Indian Head Massage, Rahanni, Crystal Healing & Angelic Reiki practitioner. I studied with the College of Sound Healing and qualifed as a Sound Healing Practitioner, specialising in Crystal and Himalayan Singing Bowls and group Soundbaths.
Working with crystals, sound & vibrational healing is my biggest passion in life and what I feel I was always meant to do.
Alongside my holistic therapies, I have worked in the health & social care sector for over 15 years, having previously worked for local Social Services and later as a Deputy Care Manager, specialising in Dementia and Palliative care which allowed to me gain a deep understanding of specialist care needs and how Holistic therapies can be of great benefit in transitional life phases. I also own a Chair Fitness company supporting Dementia patients with mobility.
In addition to providing Holistic therapies I also create natural, organic & vegan friendly aura and space cleansing sprays, Epsom and Himalayan bath salts and smudge kits infused with reiki, essential oils and sound healing as well as Bach Flower Remedies which are all available from this website as well as my Etsy store Holistic Serenity Shop.
I lead workshops and mediation groups aimed at stress relief and creating inner wellness and enabling others to embrace their higher selves.
My journey to holistic therapies came a little later in life for me. My grandmother was both a psychic and a gifted medium. My uncle was a Shamanic practitioner who chose to live a life in tune with nature. So it does feel as though, I was always destined to walk this path.
My biggest passion in life has always first and foremost, been music. I've sung in many bands, play drums, guitar and a little piano.
Whilst I'd always had an open mind, it wasn't really till I met my wife that my interest in holistic therapies peaked.
I'm the first to admit, I was something of a sceptic initially. But as I witnessed my wife, Nicole work with clients living abroad, on other continents even, and accurately picking up on injuries during her distant Reiki sessions, and seeing the positive thanks and feedback she got, I really wanted to understand & learn more.
This eventually led me to being attuned to Reiki myself. I was really motivated by thought of being able to make a positive difference to people's lives.
This in time led me to qualify as a Sports & Swedish Massage Therapist, Reiki & Crystal Healing Practitioner, Tarot Reader and Life Coach. My journey also led me back to my musical roots.
I've completed Sound Healing workshops and host group Soundbath meditations with my wife. I work predominantly with hand pan drums, steel tongued drums as well as Shamanic drums. I lead meditation groups into Shamanic Journeys to enable them to release negative emotions & traumas and gain a more positive mindset.
My professional background as Head of a Marketing Department as well as being the director of my own Design & Marketing Consultancy firm has allowed me to gain a good understanding of what people want and need and how to help them achieve that.
We believe with the right circumstances and mindset, everyone can find their better-selves. We help people to free themselves of anxiety, stress and the general wear and tear that life can create.
As human-beings we forget that we ourselves need looking after and that is where we are able to support you in empowering yourself.
We know that everyone has the potential to grow and become the greatest version of themselves. Our services & treatments help people achieve that, in a gentle and harmonious way.
"Nicole contacted me right away and set up a convenient time for my healing. She made some gentle suggestions to make the process as effective as possible. I slept well (which is very unusual for me!), woke up early, and had the motivation to exercise. I am excited to continue to work with her. I believe she has unique gifts to share".
"Nicole is such an incredibly compassionate person .from start to finish of the treatment she puts you at ease and after the crystal bowl healing i left feeling like a new person . I recommend her to everyone. Thank you".
"Wonderful care was taken to make me a personal mix, and the best thing is that it works! The remedy worked really quite quickly, rather magical! Thank you so much."
