My Approach

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!

  • If you are doing quite well but want to do bettter, let's talk about your biggest dream.
  • If you are bored in your job and know you have a deeper purpose, I will happily set up a free 30 minute call.
  • If you need to find yourself again after your kids leave home, a marriage has ended, you've been made redundant etc. - I am here to support you to regroup, redefine and relaunch.

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?'

  • Have I achieved enough to be satisfied - i.e. did I complete my life mission?
  • Are my affairs in order?
  • Have I forgiven myself and everyone who has wronged me?
  • What did I actually learn and contribute?

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.

 Contact me now for more information or to book a session. 


I just wanted to tell you that the friend Kathy H whom I was uncertain about actually sent me a text 5 minutes after we had finished talking!!!! So we must have energised the link!!! And your wisdom to help me learn more also is good. I'm meeting her on Saturday, and we'll have a coffee etc.

Fine Art Brings Happiness

A beautiful and moving image now graces my wall: layers of vibrant colour alternatively reveal and conceal forms of significance, depicted with emotion and artistry. The abstract quality is such that it is a timeless piece I will always value and enjoy.
Thankyou !

Feng Shui Consultation for New Home

Growing up in China, I have always interested in Fengshui. As we were moving to Ipswich, I googled Fengshui consultant locally and that is how I found Rachel. I am so glad that we connected through the email initially. The house move took 9 months, Rachel was so patient, and she offered me advice through the process. I was so excited to meet her the day after we moved in. It provided us with a lot of comfort and guidiance at the new home. With her consultation, we had a much better understanding of the new space. Rachel is very intuitive, she did the dowsing, cleared the geopathic stress by using 'acupuncture'. The ritual she carried out involved all family member, so it was rather special.  By using Fengshui principle and combined with our personal astrology, Rachel pointed out where the 'special corners' in our house, for example the wealth, relationship, friends and helpful people etc; She also helped us choose the interior colour, elemental accessories, positive symbolism in art works etc. I am so glad that I have found Rachel. It made us settle in and connect with our new home much quicker. The declutter has given us a much healthier space to live in. Whenever I feel disconnected with our home, I try to use some of the Fengshui she taught us to refresh and cleanse. I am so grateful that I contacted Rachel at the first place. 

Feng Shui Resolved Serious Mental Health Issue

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.

Feng Shui Consultation Solved Tenant Crisis Ipswich

"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."
