A little bit about Linda

I work intuitively using an integrative, holistic approach. My focus and particular skill area is in allowing and encouraging creative and emotional expression as a primary route to expanding consciousness, self acceptance and understanding. This is my journey too.

I draw from a rich and varied toolbox of skills 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 natural medicines, subtle energy work and the healing arts in general.

I work with my eyes, hands and heart.

As an intuitive creative my curiosity and longing for Life constantly motivates and inspires me to keep exploring. I am have always loved creating experiences and opportunities for people to learn more about themselves enabling greater freedom enjoyment and richness in their lives and also being able to navigate more effectively through life's challenges. I have facilitated countless groups and circle and co created may community events, workshops and exhibitions.

My deep love of Nature and Beauty has always been central to my practise as both artist and healer.My spiritual life is central to me now practised and expressed in a direct and straightforward way in connection with my self , my body , the land , seasons , cycles and rhythms of life .




Flower and Vibrational Essences

Essences offer a pathway to long lasting change as well as day to day help to keep us emotionally balanced and centred. I use both the Bach Flower Essences for ongoing balancing and more recent ranges, including Crystal Herbs, Alaskan and Lightbringer Essences alongside my own  range of essences I have made myself over the past 15 years. These essences all which work on different energetic levels and help us with many deep rooted beliefs, generational patterns and ways of being.

They are powerful but gentle healers and when we begin using them we can expect subtle and sometimes not so subtle changes to start occurring in our lives. We become more able to be authentic, actualize our potential and be aligned with our unique soul calling. We begin to find peace and acceptance with our past and inheritance alongside connecting with our inner strength and knowing.

How they work

Vibrational Essences work by capturing the healing potential held energetically within all aspects of creation - flowers, crystals, animals, colours ,sacred sites , particular times of the yearly and planetary cycles. On some level we all recognise these inherent qualities tapping into them in many ways, for example seeking the peace of Green spaces, taking flowers to ill folk. We feel more energised and at peace in some places whilst other places can make us feel uneasy or even ill, the same applies to colours , times of the year and so on. Vibrational essences contain the energetic imprint or vibration of a flower , tree, place , planetary event or crystal which is captured in water which has the ability to hold vibrational imprint which is then stabilised by the addition of a preservative ( usually alcohol) . There is increasing scientific evidence now to support this process which is something humans, healers and shamans have been doing for thousands of years.

Dosage and uses

Essences are usually taken internally and can also be used for animals, plants and on the land. A typical dosage would be to take four drops on your tongue twice daily from a 30ml dropper bottle of your personalised combination.

Essences can be used safely and effectively with conventional and other forms of complimentary medicine. They can enhance the effectiveness of some treatments for example by adding them to massage oils or taken alongside psychotherapy, energy and bodywork, herbal medicine and homeopathy. As sprays they can also be used to clear negative atmospheres, for protection and clearing our energy fields.

Consultations

At the thirty minutes taster session you will receive a personalized combination of Bach Flower Essences to help you live your daily life in a more emotionally balanced way.

If you are looking for deep change and transformation I recommend a full 90 minute consultation to begin building a picture and sense of you,what are the unhelpful patterns and beliefs that are still running , what are your blocks and current life challenges as well as your hopes,dreams and desires, from this information I will then choose your essence combination which I will make up for you. This will then be followed by a recommended minimum of two further consultations over a three to six month period.


If you feel drawn to working with me and this wonderful way of connecting with the healing potential in creation please get in touch for an intitial free telephone conversation.

Essences also work very well alongside other forms of complimentary medicine and in no way affect the efficacy of convential treatment.

Fees

£30 for 30 minute taster consultation .

£60 for full initial 90 minute consultation.

£40 for follow up 60 minute consultations.



Massage for Relaxation.
Image result for images of massage

Our hands are designed to touch , hold and reach out to others. To receive a massage is one of the most nourishing things we can do for ourselves and is a simple way of maintaining good connection withour bodies, the deep relaxation involved also encourages to return to our self and our Centre.

Benefits of Massage

As well as being very enjoyable massage has many proven health benefits.

It is well known that the body's natural capacities for self regulation and self healing operate most effectively well when the body is in a state of rest and relaxation - this is why busy lifestyles , ongoing stress and constant stimulation does not give the body sufficient chance to re balance and heal. Good regular sleep patterns is the way we naturally do this but it is also helpful to establish other ways of allowing our bodies and minds to relax and to let go of blocked areas of tension. We can then begin to see that this applies on not only to the physical but also on mental and emotional levels too . There are obviously many other factors that also effect our ability to remain well and fully functioning including diet , regular exercise , meditation and good holistic healthcare.

Massage is one of the many forms of Complimentary Healthcare that takes a holistic approach helping us maintain or reestablish our equilibrium in mind, body, soul and spirit.By having regular massage we can develop increasingly good self care and become more effective , happy , healthy , self aware and loving human beings

What a massage session involves.

We will start with a short verbal consultation to make sure I have all the required information and a broad overview of your current state of health.

Depending on which massage option you have chosen - head , hands, feet, neck, back or full body, you will be asked to undress to your under wear and get yourself comfortably established onto the massage couch with variuos towels included for your comfort, while I leave the room.

On returning we can proceed with the massage - you are free to either talk ,have background music or simply enjoy silence in the session.

Clients sometimes fall asleep or go into a deep almost trance like state of relaxation at some point in the massage so I will gently inform you when the session is complete and offer you a glass of water before leaving the room for a few minutes while you can gently return to everyday consciousness and get fully dressed again.

When I return to the room I will check how you are feeling and if there is any feedback we want to share from the session, including thoughts, requests or suggestions for the next session.

I generally use massage oils enhanced with Aromatherapy oils and also can include a personalized selection of Vibrational Essences to help harmonise and balance your mind body soul and spirit. I work intuitively trusting my hands to know where to go, always with the intention of balance and healing so no two sessions are identical as I tune into your state and areas of stress and tension at that particular time

Clients usually leave the session with a greater ease and relaxation with themselves and their bodies.

Fees

£40 for 1 hour massage of any combination of head hands, neck, back, feet or full body.

£60 for 1 hour 30minute massage of any combination of head hands, neck, back, feet or full body.
