Although therapy is never about the therapist - it's always about you, the client - it's necessary to know a bit about the person you are considering working with, to see if they / I am the right person to help you at this time. So a bit about my journey is included below.
After over ten years working on a broad range of issues, I now focus primarily on personal empowerment, path finding, developing creativity/a purposeful life. I also deal with all of the blocks to the achievement of goals, whether it is time (lack of), limiting beliefs or low confidence/esteem, fear of success, fear of change, frustration and impatience - I want it NOW! - I get it!
I think we have all realised recently that time is super-precious. Pandemics, wars, crazy everything. Yet there have also been opportunities galore. My philosophy is to try to enjoy every second of today while at the same time add steps to prepare for a long and happy future and have SMART goals in place.
There is an interesting saying - 'is today a good day to die?'
Your life doesn't have to be perfect, by the way, if you seriously ponder those questions. I like it because it aids me in losing the naivety of youth, and the bullet-proof 'I'm going to live forever attitude'. No. Time is limited and far more precious than money. So where do I invest it? My question to myself every day and to you.
The answer I found is - I'm happy. It took me a long time to get there. But every detail of my life has had a purpose, and everything I have had to deal with is real gold. Because it has shown me where I needed to heal.
An epiphanie happens in a split second - it is a sudden realisation - something has to change. When you either cannot sink any lower - and hit true rock bottom or make a committed choice to move in a different direction, or decide to rebrand yourself and switch your life up - that is an epiphanie, the way I see it.
My journey began having experienced depression in my teens. This led me to explore astrology, art therapy, meditation and other forms of alternative healing, which helped me to find a new direction and sense of purpose. I went on to train as a hypnotherapist and Feng Shui consultant to assist others in creating happy, joy-filled lives and freedom from long-standing emotional issues.
I also trained in a range of other Meridian based therapies – The Emotional Freedom Technique, Acupuncture for the Mind and Attractor Field Technique. These were combined into the sessions I gave clients and often worked at a much deeper level than the initial tools I had started with. During this time, I qualified as a Reiki Master, Reiki drumming practitioner, Breathwork and Rebirthing practitioner and spent time in Peru, studying the ancient healing techniques of the Shamans in the Andes and the Amazon jungle.
For eight years, I ran a private practice at home and from complementary health centres in Ipswich and Felixstowe, helping people to clear long standing issues and create more fulfilling lives. I also worked with corporate clients to provide one-to-one stress management sessions and conducted Feng Shui consultations to assist in creating healthy, balanced and supportive homes.
Then after a break to develop other interests, in 2018, I spent a year studying shamanic art and attended a Wild Hunt Retreat in Pennsylvania. This drew me back to my interest in the healing arts, and I have opened my practice again with a new focus – combining Feng Shui, astrology, Reiki and energetic techniques.
I currently offer Feng Shui and Astrology readings, Reiki Drumming journeys and energetic healing to clients via Zoom/Skype and from my studio retreat, near Ipswich in Suffolk. Sessions are designed to provide clarity on where you are in life, and help you move easily towards your goals. Sessions are designed to empower you to understand your energy better, find your own answers and balance any energetic disturbances.
If you would like to know more or feel I can help you, I'm happy to arrange a free 30-minute Zoom call to speak face to face and listen to what you wish to achieve / gain help with. This is without obligation - and will ensure that there is a good fit on both sides for achieving your life goals.

I asked for Rachels help with a young family member. They were having mental health issues which involved refusing to attend school, withdrawing from friendship groups and showing signs of psychosis. Rachel discussed with me her findings regarding her birth date and time in relation to her specialised work. Together we put a plan in place as I was to help. I carried out her recommendations. She stated that this time would come to an end this Spring and they would be through the part of the chart that was causing the chaos. I am so excited to report that they were again attending school until the lockdown. She is fully interacting with her family and is again part of her friendship group. Due to the lockdown and her now being well she is catching up with the school work she missed and will be ready to start again when the time comes. She is now off all medication which included ADHD and antidepressant prescription drugs. I cannot thank Rachel enough. If you are on the fence regarding her work, don’t be, it will be the best thing you could do for yourself and those you care for.
"Before I got in touch with Rachel, I was at a loss to know what to do. I had bought a flat to rent out in Ipswich, but it attracted the wrong types of tenants. The previous three tenants had either not paid their rent or had left the flat in a very bad state of repair, or both. In effect, I was just chucking money into a big black hole. I wanted to keep the flat, which I would eventually pass on to my son, but I still had the mortgage to pay. After reading about feng shui and the effect it can have, I was keen to find out more. I contacted Rachel and she explained what she intended to do and why. Admittedly, I was a bit sceptical at first, but I was keen to give it a go. Much to my amazement, after a six month rent void, that same week, a potential tenant turned up at the flat. The couple liked what they saw and moved in within two weeks. Much to my relief, they also paid the rent on time. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone in a similar situation."
"I contacted Rachel after moving into a new house, as I wanted life to continue smoothly in our new residence. Like most people, I was particularly concerned that our good fortune and relationship remained strong and healthy. The consultation was really helpful as it cleared up a lot of my questions regarding feng shui, and I was able to choose colours for all the rooms. Although at the time of writing this I have yet to implement all of the changes (we are redecorating the whole house) already I have noticed some results. My husband and I have spent more quality time together this summer after strengthening the relationship area, and we feel like we have got to know each other again. Also shortly after adding some prosperity cures, I had two wins on the bingo - one for £560!!"
“Thank you very much for all your help, my life, marriage and attitude has greatly improved since I first came to see you for a consultation and reiki healing in Suffolk. My husband thinks you are worth your weight in gold.”
