You can read Nicole & Jay’s individual stories below.
It would be fair to say that my journey to holistic therapies has been in my blood from the moment of my birth.
My parents were Accupuncturists, Physiotherapists and Chinese Herbalists. Which for me, meant that as a child I rarely saw conventional doctors, as there was often a natural remedy in our house that meant I didn’t have the need western medical intervention.
By the age of 12, I understood about meridian lines, the benefits of homepathy, cider vinegar and was familiar with the healing crystals that were dotted around our houseIt’s of little suprise I ended up on this path really.
Alongside my holistic therapies, I 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 later went on to teach Health & Social Care to adult learners wanting to work up to care management levels, until my Holistic work became my primary focus, and led me to Ibiza.
I began really working with crystals and various forms of divination over 23 years ago and have been a certified Holistic Practitioner over 15 years. At very start of 2006, I was attuined to Usui Reiki, and this led me on the most wonderful journey of healing.
Today I am an Angelic Reiki Master/Teacher for the Angelic Reiki Association, a Usui Shiki Ryoho Teacher/ Master and an accredited training provider offering courses in Crystal Healing.
I am most well known for being a Sound Healing Practiioner and hosting soundbath meditations. I was blessed to study with the College of Sound Healing, where I specialised in Group Soundbaths, Crystals and Himalayan Singing Bowls.
Working with crystals, sound & vibrational healing is my biggest passion in life and allowed me to embrace my soul purpose and help others on their own healing journeys.
I am very proud that Holistic Serenity Training is an accredited Training provider with the IPHM (International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine).
Our online Crystal Healing beginner courses in Crystal Healing for Every day Life, Crystal Gridding with Confidence and our Level 3 Practitioner Diploma Courses, as well as all face to face and online Reiki Courses, are fully acredited.

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.
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.
Whilst I’d always had an open mind, it wasn’t really till I met my wife that my interest in holistic therapies peaked and the interest grew.
My interest in Holistic Therapies benefitted me so greatly, and made a difference to my own life, that it led me to go on to qualify as a Sports & Swedish Massage Therapist, Crystal Healing practioner, as well as a Reiki Master/Teacher.
I also went on to qualify as an NLP and Shamanic Practitioner which has made a wondeful transformation to the lives of my clients. Today I incoroprate all of my skills to help people in all aspects of their daily lives.
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 and men’s 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.
Having spent many years working in the corporate world I have developed my knowledge and understanding of business and marketing as well as completed training in life coaching and business development.
I am a keen personal development enthusiast and spend a lot of time finding ways to make not only my business more effective but that of those I work with.
I have worked for many global corporations and can help businesses of all sizes to improve, using many techniques including lean management and kaizen.
