Sometimes you just know when your chosen career is right for you. And I have found the perfect blend as a celebrant and wellbeing practitioner.
So why did I choose to be The Holistic Celebrant?
I attended a family ceremony where I felt the content was more about the vicar’s beliefs than the people involved, and some details quoted were incorrect. This really didn’t feel to be personal. I came away from this ceremony thinking “I could have done a much better job”.
What about my training?
So, I completed my training with an industry leading provider Civil Ceremonies Ltd and became qualified to develop and deliver bespoke weddings, partnerships, namings and funerals. And I just love it. What could be more rewarding than engaging with your clients to deliver something so personal and special. No two ceremonies are ever alike.
Which techniques do I use?
As a wellbeing practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner, Reiki Master, Indian Head Massage therapist, Mindfulness teacher and Sound Healer I regularly use my toolbox of techniques and therapies to support people to be the best they can be. As Maya Angelou said “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude” I work with my clients to help them to be the best version of themselves and to bring about balance of mind, body and spirit.
Since childhood I have connected with spirit and work closely with my spirit guide Fire Spirit, who I call Ed. This has enabled me to be true to myself. I am therefore honoured to deliver spiritual meditation classes, earth centred gong baths, teach reiki, offer evenings of mediumship and trance communications as well as personal spiritual angel card readings.
How can I help you?
So whether your looking for a special ceremony, a therapy or to attend a session I welcome the opportunity to work with you to create something special, just the way you like it. Based in Barrowford, Nelson for therapies, delivering sessions at Gannow Community Centre, Burnley and Ceremonies throughout the North of England and further afield or in a field?
