Links, information, and other support

Here you will find links to various therapists and organisations who can provide further help or information. Many are people I have worked with personally and benefited greatly from.

Counselling related links

I qualified from a BACP accredited Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy course, at Warwick University in 2005.

Even introductory counselling training gives useful personal development, and maybe of interest. There are several well respected training organisations locally in Devon, such as Iron Mill in Exeter.

Some good background on Person-Centred Counselling is given on BAPCA's website - they represent the approach in the UK. Carl Rogers founded Person/Client-Centred principles, something frequently referred to in organisations and healthcare today.

Healing related links

VortexHealing® is highly transformative, recommended whether or not you wish to work as a healer yourself. I've been attending trainings since October 2011. Even the first training is very powerful - a 5 day course in London.

Barbara Brennan has written several renoun books on energy healing and is a well-known American healer (originally a psychologist).

The UK energy healing school was founded by two of Barbara's graduates, and is a separate organisation. They brought their experience, including that of her training, to create the 3 year syllabus of the school.

The Reiki Association give an accessible introduction to Reiki, its benefits, the typical format of a session, and more. I received my Reiki training when I lived in Warwickshire, from a friend and very powerful healer, Tracy Hamilton.

Other practitioners
