I work with individuals, groups and communities and enjoy making things happen especially in collaboration with others.                    
My own creative process and healing journey always leads and informs the work I share and is therefore by its very nature constantly developing and changing.

Gong Bath with Sat Parvan Kaur.

Its powerful vibrations change the vibrational resonance of the whole body-mind system - physical & energetic blockages are released and brainwaves are brought into coherence, opening the way to deep delta repair, creative alpha problem-solving or expansive theta consciousness. Each gong bath is unique, and every person in the same gong bath will have a different experience.

A Meditative Nature Walk 

Enjoy an opportunity to let go of your busy chattering mind, allow the woods and nature to teach you stillness.  Slow your mind and create peace.

In Japan the practice of Shinrin Yoku (Forest Bathing) has become a cornerstone of wellbeing practice. Drawing on the therapeutic powers of nature and connecting people with the natural environment.When we walk in nature a natural state of aliveness and being "in the now" can occur.  A tree, a flower, a plant are still and deeply rooted in presence.  When we join nature in this place, when we let go of our busy lives and minds we can find joy,grace and connection.  Now more than ever our earth and the nature around us calls us for our connection and consciousness. It is a state of being of mutual importance

As well as Forest Bathing Jess is an animal communicator and healer, biodynamic gardener and fellow traveller. In an animal communication session Jess helps you gain insight into your animal's emotional and physical wellbeing. This can assist with physical and emotional problems deepening your bond and often allowing a change and transformation for you and your animal.To find out more contact Jess directly jcrampin@yahoo.co.uk

About Me

I work with my eyes, hands and heart.

My curiosity and longing for Life constantly motivates and inspires me to keep exploring and my deep love of Nature and Beauty has always been central to my practise as both artist and healer.  I have always loved creating experiences and opportunities for people to learn more about themselves enabling greater freedom, enjoyment and richness in their lives. This in turn enables us to actualize our potential and become more skilled and effective in navigating through life's challenges. 

I have facilitated countless groups and circles and co created may community events, workshops and exhibitions.

I work intuitively using an integrative, holistic approach drawing from a rich toolbox of skills which I have developed over 35 years of working in the Healing Arts field having trained in Flower and Vibrational Medicine, Humanistic psychology, Deep Tissue Bodywork , Counselling, Person centred Art Therapy and Labyrinth Facilitation alongside a life long interest in complimentary medicine and healthy living.

My spiritual life is central to me which I express in direct and straightforward ways in connection with myself, my body, the land, seasons, cycles and rhythms of life .
