Online Groups for the Winter
Welcome everyone. We’re starting this week with all of the online classes I am running. It is my intention to offer you all workshops & classes that will get us through this winter lockdown feeling well nourished. Ready for the energy of Spring, refreshed & revitalised. We will be much more aware of how we are using our mind & what we are focusing our energy on.
The relaxation class is an hour of practise; slowing down the mind & connecting it to the body. During this time we use the breath to help the body relax. Then we connect the mind & breath. And this enables the mind to go into a much deeper state of relaxation, soothing the hormones of stress. These classes are currently held once a month on a Saturday. They are suitable for everyone, as they are a practise. Everyone has enjoyed these sessions. By the end of the hour you will feel more relaxed , grounded & centred. You can find out more here
There are now two times in the moon cycle when we are connecting to the energies & qualities of the moon. We’re consciously becoming aware of how to utilise the qualities of the moon to enhance life experience & become more consciously creative. And we’re using the guidance from Yasmin Boland’s Moonology book to work with our personal astrology & as a group. If you wish to join us with the full moon & or, new moon groups contact me here
Look forward to working with you all over these next few weeks. Remember to watch & take notice of the things that lower your energy & the things that raise your energy. Be gentle with yourselves,
New Year Things That Help Us Feel Good
Hi everyone Happy New Year.
The focus of this article is all about helping us to feel good. I’ve done quite a few interviews over the last couple of months. These are with different therapists who offer amazing treatments to help people “feel good”. All of the interviews are on my Healing Touch Facebook page.
Interview with Justeene
So I’ve started the New year’s chat with Justeene Eke. Within it we discuss the different activities we have on offer during lock down. This includes the New Moon Meditation Group which is available for everyone to join. And I have new dates for the Full Moon Meditation Group.
The Reiki Portal
Justeene & I have also created The Reiki Portal workshops. Originally created for everyone that had been through any stage of Reiki training. We are going to open them up to everyone in the Spring. They are a 12 week program of bite sized activities. During the time together we explore the chakras & how we are all working with them. We look at our own self-care practises & share all sorts of activities of nourishment. All carried out from the heart. If you like the sound of this send me a message or call 01692 630016.
Interview with Paulina
Friday 22nd January
I will be doing an interview with Paulina Jones. We will be discussing her very powerful Gateway Technique. I’m really looking forward to sharing this with you all. This therapy is a passion of mine because it’s helped me through a repetitive traumatic experience. I know I can go to Paulina whenever I need a shift. And this is why I decided to train in it. So Keep an eye on my Facebook page for more info.
Have a great week everyone. I will be back on here soon!
Autumn is Here………
Hi everyone welcome to autumn.
Therapies & Treatments for Wellbeing
For some I know this can be a tough time as the nights become longer. There’s a lot of change going on around us all at the moment. Which is why allowing ourselves to receive some type of treatment is so important. They help our mental, emotional & physical wellbeing.
It may be a simple back massage, reflexology treatment or energy healing. Whatever it is, that connection with another human is so much more appreciated now. And our bodies need nurturing as we build up our energy over the colder months, ready for the Spring.
I bought this lovely Vogel Crystal from Little Gems Rock Shop this week & I love it. Vogels are fantastic for high frequency energy work in crystal therapy sessions. Crystal therapy is such a great energy healing treatment. During a crystal therapy stagnant energies which we have absorbed from other people, are shifted. And it also great for recharging the energy field when we feel lethargic or go through a situation that completely drains or jolts us. See Megan’s testimonial about how it helped her if you’re intrigued to find out how it can help you…..
I’ve updated the Workshops & Classes page of this website for the rest of this year.
Connected Kids Training
I’m aiming to finish the Connected Kids course by the end of this month. As soon as I am qualified I will let you all know. Moreover, Im really looking forward to working with children & their parents or guardians. During a session I share meditation & mindful techniques now proven by neuroscience to change brain waves. This reduce the hormones of stress, improving the feeling of wellbeing. Moreover, it enhances that connection / communication between adult & child.
Have a browse through the pages of this website & see if there’s anything you’re drawn to this autumn.
Speak to you all soon,
fWhere’s my Organised Head?
Hi everyone how are you all? (photo taken a couple of years ago)
We’ve just come out of the energy of another full moon. I have been discussing with the Full Moon Nurturing groups how I can’t find my organised head. ( Calista Macgillivary talked about this last week ) They were saying the same thing; that this Pisces moon, Virgo sun energy is just slowing us all down. And it’s happening at a time when there seems to be lots of doors opening up.
You may have seen that I am on a monthly subscription called Still Waters ; created by Angela Ward & Mags Sorrell from Breathing Space . I am really excited about this project. And will be doing some more recordings for Still Waters over the next month. This will include mindfulness activities & meditation for children of all ages. Still Waters offers yoga, sound baths, chakra balancing, Mag’s tips, fun in the kitchen & wild soul. All of this is on monthly subscription! I think it will really connect people at a time when we can feel very disconnected.
Meditation & Mindful activities for children
I’m also in the thick of carrying out one to one case studies for my Connected kids training – & guys this is when I could do with some help. I need four more group practises with two to ten children in a group. And they must be in the same age group. So if you think your child’s school or dance group, or friends would be happy for me to practise let me know. They need to have up to half an hour of mindful activities / meditation for the course. Contact me on 07748842211. You really will be helping me out. Once qualified, I will be helping children who are going through anxiety, exam nerves, worry, depression etc. It’s a really great way of helping children process & express their feelings & start to feel more centred within themselves.
Reiki students – later on in the winter I shall be offering a 12 week subscribed program on Facebook. This will be co-created with Reiki student, now a Master Justeene Eke from Jusforyou . So this is going to be a fabulous, heart centred, winter time self care treat. For those of you who have trained in Reiki. More information will follow soon.
Finally, Tropic are having a New Season Launch party training for 19th September. I’m looking forward to discovering what new ideas Susie has come up with for the autumn. Also the gift selections she has created for ideal Christmas presents.
Whooo, & on that note it’s now time for me to say farewell for now, Look forward to catching up with you all soon.
Look after yourselves everyone & remember to take some time for self care
Spiritual Life Coaching Qualification
I’ve been waiting to share this one with you all for a few weeks now – What is it?
Over the last few years, as a holistic therapist the therapies that I offer have naturally evolved. Many of my clients have integrated a variety of techniques into their daily practise of self care. They have the tools to help them cope with what can be a busy, stressful & hectic life, trying to juggle everything & everyone.
Often we can be pulled in lots of different directions as a partner, mum, sister, daughter, auntie, colleague & friend. Whilst we love this, there can be very little time for the self; to explore who we are, what makes the heart sing & what we really wish to create & experience in this life. We can often feel safe with this known life style & known self, even when we greatly desire something else – we might not know where to start.
Expanding your creativity
If you feel a calling from deep within your heart to explore & tap into new potentials, then spiritual life coaching may be your solution.
We sit together, I find out all about you, the areas you are struggling with & that which you wish to heal or create. Then we agree together on a practice which can be applied into your life. Something which you are happy to hold yourself accountable for. We agree on how I can support you with this.
Some of the sessions may include energetic guidance through card readings, hand analysis or energy field work. We will be working intuitively for your highest & best good.
If you think you will lack motivation there’s no worry – I will be there! We can look at this.
Spiritual Life Coaching is looking at everything from a soul perspective – looking at patterns from this life time & if it resonates with you & is necessary, other life times.
What does “Spiritual” mean?
That word Spiritual can mean so many things to so many people. Ultimately I feel its the Guidance of our Divine, loving selves. Which is always loving, supportive, full of joy & connected to our deep knowing. That which kicks in before the monkey brain can talk you out of it.
So if you like the sound of it & feel drawn to give it a try get in touch.
I am offering FREE half hour introductory Spiritual Life Coaching sessions. This gives you the opportunity to see what it’s all about & whether you resonate with me.
You can contact me here to find out more.
I’m really looking forward to connecting with you….
Connected Kids Training
Hi everyone how are you all doing?
Are you starting to feel better now the sun is shining & the lock down rules have relaxed?
I am now starting Level 2 training of Connected Kids. So I thought I’d share a little insight from what I’m currently understanding & why I felt guided to work with children .
A couple of summers ago some friends of mine had children taking their SATS & A levels. They asked me to carry out the Gateway Technique with them which I did. And the children responded really well – feeling completely different, with a sense of clarity & lightness.
Preparing children for exams
I worked with my friend’s daughter who was going through her A levels, to help her with the exams. And also how she was going to study for them. Together, we shifted her perception in how she viewed her teachers / school.
After these sessions my friends pointed out to me how much children need this. Which made me realise I needed to find some type of qualification to work with children.
I discussed this with my friends / colleagues Michelle Williamson & Victoria Dewey. They also felt inspired to do this. So we spent a few weeks looking at different training programmes & Connected Kids was the one that stood out the most to us.
Connected Kids training
Researched & founded by Lorraine E. Murray, Connected Kids teaches the therapist to work with a child individually & in group settings. We use a huge variety of tools / techniques with the practises of mindfulness & meditation. During a session, we help children relax, focus, self regulate & improve learning. This is a very heart centred practise, using meditation to problem solve & overcome challenges. Enhancing their health & wellbeing.
We work with toddlers through to teenagers ( up to 18 years) including children in the autistic spectrum & with special needs.
I am still doing 5 minutes of Relaxation on Tuesday evenings 7:30pm as Facebook Live here
Relaxation Classes are being held every Friday night on Messenger video call 7:30pm.
The next full moon nurturing group is Thursday 2nd July 10:30am & Saturday 4th July 10:30am – weather permitting in my garden.
Look forward to seeing you soon,
Good afternoon everyone, today is a New Moon. This energetically gives us the opportunity to go deep within ourselves. So we can do some spring cleaning of any old energy patterns that we are ready to release / heal ( dipping into our subconscious),. And plant seeds of new intentions & creative endeavours.
I started working with John a week ago on Monday ( he breaks up cars & trades the parts; or if they can be saved he will rescue you the vehicle & once restored put it up for sale) ). This is a very foreign experience for me, I felt like I’d landed on another planet for a while. I am getting used to it now. It does mean that we get to spend time together. And I enjoy being able to physically support him with all of his creative ideas.
Change of work?
Working outside with John is lovely, however, it is very dusty & dirty & very physical work (which will build up my strength) – a completely different environment to what I’m used to. It has really helped me to appreciate my home, treatment room & garden. I really enjoy my days off. And, it means I get to travel the country side again which I am very grateful for.
Online Spiritual Life Coaching
I’ve also now begun an online course for spiritual coaching. In the past, I’ve been told that I do this all the time. And because it’s second nature to me I didn’t have a clue what it meant. I will share more once I have qualified….
In April Victoria Michelle & I started our Connected Kids training via group video calls with the lovely Ruth Pringle. Our aim is to provide toddlers to teenagers tools that will help them for life, to manage stress, anxiety & worry . We are learning how to work with each age group. And just like we do with adults, trust our intuition to meet the children’s needs.
We were really looking forward to travelling to Ireland & spending some time together, as well as doing the course itself. With Level 1 completed, we will now see how everything unfolds in the Summer to decide how / where we will go through Level 2. Once we have completed this training we will need several case studies & groups of children for case studies. So if you know anyone who would be interested in this ( age group toddlers – 18 years) you can get in contact with me here .
Tropic VIPs page
Now that I’ve started to get used to doing Lives on my Tropic VIPs group, I’m going to try something new with you all Starting on Tuesday. Keep an eye on my Facebook page to see what’s coming up….
Have a sunny, joyful, bank holiday beauties, I will be back in touch with you all soon
The Times are Changing
Well it’s been a good month since I connected with all of you.
Since lock down began I went into my masculine energy, (like I’m sure many of us have) being busy getting lots done in the house & making changes with work. Trying to fit in The Gratitude Experiment & doing 21 days of abundance. All of this from a place of busy -ness which eventually meant giving something up.
New Moon realisation
So subconsciously, on the dark moon I realised ( with the gentle guidance of Life Sage) that I don’t have to follow through all of my commitments. Especially if they are no longer bringing joy. Acknowledging that I am in gratitude & now is the time to allow myself to receive. We have time to actually integrate where all of us are at ( the busy -ness had distracted me from the realisation of not being able to physically connect with my friends, family & clients).
And so, now dipping back into the 21 days with Deepak Chopra which I’m sharing on my Facebook page allowing myself time to connect with each subject. And then go over the meditation as often as I need to until I feel I’ve really integrated it.
We’re all adapting aren’t we. Some people are right in the thick of it on the front line keeping their energies up & focused as best they can. And we are extremely thankful for these amazing individuals.
For the rest of us, we have this opportunity, if we feel guided to have a little life review. We can be in the present moment & take our focus to the things we love. The things we’ve thought about doing at home that we’ve not had time for…. Online courses, books we’ve wanted to read, meditations that we haven’t got round to, writing our own books. We can catch up with friends that we haven’t seen for months or years. Paint our walls & pictures, do gardening, exercise, yoga….the list goes on. It also gives us the chance to see where we are emotionally. And what is it we would like to bring into our lives? Are we happy with where we are at? What other possibilities can we explore? Is there anything that needs healing or are we actually enjoying this time of freedom & rest?
We are all in this together
Wherever you are at, we are all in this together. If you can, take 5 mins out to connect to your heart & feel that beautiful energy within in you. As Mother Julian of Norwich has been quoted as saying “..All manner of things shall be well”. This time will pass.
Sending lots of Blessings & Light to you all
Hi everyone Spring is finally upon us – woohoo!
There’s a lot happening over the next few months – I’m starting a new relaxation group in Norwich with a long time friend & colleague Victoria Dewey. We’re working together again, offering really simple, gentle, relaxation classes in Norwich. Our aim is to help those of you that are struggling with a variety of issues. These include anxiety, stress, depression, worry, fear, hormonal issues, postnatal etc. So that you can start a practise that will gently, over time, calm the mind, soothe the emotions & ease the hormones of stress. We decided to provide these simple meditation / relaxation classes, as we are both aware of how people have been struggling.
There’s so much going on in the world right now . We ourselves know how a gentle practise of self care & support can greatly uplift the being. And it realigns the self with the kindness, care, fun & love in your heart. To find out more you can click here
Paulina & I also have our Spring Equinox meditation & sound Friday 20th March 7pm. As soon as we confirm the venue (hopefully tomorrow) I shall add it to this blog & the workshops page (find this at the bottom of the page).
Workshops in Norwich
Michelle & I are also venturing out into Norwich at No.8 offering our Introduction to Crystals workshop. We’re really excited to share more dates for workshops this year & we shall be creating some new courses throughout 2020.
All four of us (Paulina, Michelle, Victoria & I) are embarking on a new adventure at the end of April which we will start talking about soon.
I finally feel after what seems to have been a long winter of healing, shifting & raising vibration that everything is coming together. There is excitement in the air. I’ve got back into the practise of thank you walks which I love.
Remember everyone to quote Dr Joe “wherever you place your attention your energy will follow”. If you need some extra support right now have a browse through the therapies page & see if anything calls you.
Sending you all lots of love,
Valentines Day is coming …
As the nights start to draw out the hope of Spring is fast approaching, flowers are budding & love is in the air.
Whether you choose to celebrate Valentines or Galentines day (celebration with your close friends, 13th February), romance is in the air. Now may be the time to give yourself some self love with a relaxing massage or facial, nourishing the skin & soothing the body.
We can forget how nice it is to receive a treatment & a massage or facial is always a thoughtful gift (Special Offer face, neck & arm massage £25).
The idea of Jack Valentine leaving a gift at the door, without us knowing who sent it, is apparently an old Norfolk tradition. Its connected to the celebration of Spring & the matching of men & women in partnership.
So if you feel in need of a little self love / self care treat yourself this Valentines, you’re worth it!
Community & Communication
As we have gone through Christmas to New Year It’s become really apparent to me how keeping in touch with your community. Whether its family or friends, is an important element to our own wellbeing.
Winter & all of it’s festivities, is a time of celebration. It also takes us into the darkest point of the year & we can really feel it. Keeping in touch with our community & expressing ourselves, helps to uplift our energies. Sharing any grief, fears & concerns really does start to unburden weighted shoulders.
Whilst we do need to carry out our own inner work, we don’t have to be alone. Working & having other people’s company, does wonders for our self esteem & sense of belonging. Humans can work very well together when they have found their tribe & create amazing projects. New & wonderful ideas are formed that have a knock on effect further afield. This is after all what the Aquarian age is about – finding balance & harmony; working with the higher mind to support the earth & all it’s inhabitants.
So this year as well as the regular nurturing meditation groups. I am now working with Paulina Jones, offering ½ day, monthly workshops & solstice / equinox meditation & sound evenings. You will find dates on my Workshops page.
Mini Reiki sessions
There will also be four dates within this year, where my Reiki team & I are going to be offering 20 minute sessions of Reiki. Created for people in need, who are going through emotional, mental or physical upset. The people that you know, who really have no awareness of energy healing. Those who you think “ a little bit of healing may help them”. We will have a donations pot & decide on a cause that we would like to support for the year. To see when the first date is, keep an eye on my Workshops page & Facebook page.
I hope you’ve had a peaceful Yule
Happy New Year.
The full moon energy is always interesting. I never go out of my way to look up what the planets & moon are doing; & I certainly don’t make decisions based on them. However, whenever a repetitive cyclic pattern pops up that has the potential to put me off centre. It seems to come round a couple of days before the full moon. And it always amazes me how my experiences synchronise with the moon!
Healing & opportunity
Whatever it is that the full moon magnifies in life, it brings the opportunity to go deep within & do some extra fine tuning. I usually use meditation & crystal therapy (with either Michelle https://www.facebook.com/michelle.williamsoncrystalharmony/ or Sadie https://www.facebook.com/Amethyst-Moon-Energy-Therapies-106338084080246/) for extra support if needed. When something brings out a huge emotional upset I go to Paulina https://www.paulinajones.co.uk/ for a mixed session of havening, EFT, & whatever intuitive creation she has up her sleeve. Finding what works for you will greatly help to get you through stressful, traumatic situations.
It can be very empowering to work with the qualities of each moon cycle, helping us to focus on creative endeavours & using them as a mantra up to the next cycle. This moon is a particularly powerful one giving us the opportunity to raise our mental focus up to the creative dreams held within our hearts. Having a clear, focused mind is key to manifestation & keeping that connection, as best we can in the heart centre; trusting our inner guidance.
Years ago women had red tents (which are now on the rise again). The ladies that were having cycles would often ovulate around the full moon together; & menstruate on a dark moon. Then “Queens” & “Crones” provided a supportive space, offering their wisdom & love at what can be, the delicate time of a cycle.
Moreover full moon energy can really bring forward our creative gifts & talents. It’s wonderful for working on manifestations.
So if you feel guided, you can take this time to prepare for the next full moon.

Wishing you great abundance & Full Moon Blessings
Hi everyone welcome to my first blog -eek!
This is a whole new experience for me, however, I’ve felt really guided to do one. It’s often scary starting something new, however, as Dr Joe Dispenza would say we have to go into the unknown to receive the new.
I thought it would be nice to start by having a chat about the chakras. Chakras are centres of energy directly connected to our hormonal glands & our autonomic nervous system (the parts in our body that automatically work for us without thinking about it, like our heart).
When they are flowing in harmony (it took me five years to really start stabilising my root & sacral chakras) then we feel safe, supported, healthy, creative & focused.
Working the Chakras
I’ve had such an amazing journey as I’ve worked on healing my energy with the support of other therapists including Michelle (who I’ve co-created the chakras workshops with). It’s amazing how everything synchronises at the right time & stories are reflected through the chakras.
If chakras are something that you feel you’re interested in, come along to our Introduction to chakras workshop (scroll to the bottom of the page for more details) on Friday 6th December 10am at Healing Touch in Horning.
To book your space you can contact me on 07748842211 or message me from my contacts page.
