Hi, my name is Cheryl and I am a fully qualified holistic therapist working with clients in the Witney and Oxfordshire area.
I became a therapist after receiving healing myself during a very tough time in my life. My experience was so profound and real that I decided I wanted nothing more than to change my life and the lives of others by becoming a healer.
My journey with crystals began in 2007 when my husband and I were trying for our second child. Our youngest daughter was born in 2005 and my husband and I had both decided that we didn’t want her to grow up as an only child. I was diagnosed with endometriosis in my 20’s and I had suffered terrible menstrual cycles from my mid-teens. My doctor had prescribed hormone treatment for me at the age of 15 in order to help ease my symptoms. Having my first child had seemed relatively easy but trying for my second was not so easy, in fact, it was quite an unpleasant and difficult time for me. One in three women have endometriosis but many will not be aware of it. I however, had been very aware of it from the first day of my menstrual cycle. At its worst endometriosis is a very unpleasant condition that causes many symptoms including fatigue, very heavy and painful periods, pain in the lower back and legs and problems conceiving. So, trying for a baby with all this going on in my body was proving very tough and the more time went by, the worse my symptoms became because I wasn’t taking any hormone replacements.
I was pointed in the direction of Crystal Healing by a friend and I saw a Therapist for the first time about my problems in the autumn. She told me I would need five treatments with a gap of two weeks between each session. At my first treatment she placed a Garnet crystal on my abdomen and used a crystal wand to draw out energy. I remember feeling the sensations of the crystal on my body, often feeling like it was moving around. I also felt a light buzzing sensation and warmth around my sacral area. After my third treatment I skipped an entire menstrual cycle - my cycles had always been very regular, like clockwork, to the point that I could even predict the exact day they would begin - so when there was nothing I knew it had to be something to do with my treatments. Within weeks of my last treatment I found out I was pregnant. The whole of my pregnancy went smoothly and my daughter was born a completely healthy baby. She was such an easy going baby too and was always happy and smiling, she still is!
My journey through this particular time sparked something inside me. Lisa (my Therapist) had done something amazing for me. Not only had she given me the chance to have another child, but had inspired me to help others in the same way. Although I knew that the treatments would not guarantee results, I truly believe that the reason I fell pregnant was not by coincidence but because something very real had taken place between my body and the energy of that Garnet crystal. And what's more amazing is that the endometriosis never came back - I have been completely symptom free since my treatments in 2007.
Following this experience, I decided I wanted to become a Crystal Healer, but first my journey was to take me to a Reiki Master Teacher. Between 2011 and 2012 I completed First and Second Degree Reiki with a UK Reiki Federation registered teacher in Oxfordshire. I worked very hard to master my technique and did not start practicing until I had done my full 21 days self-healing and 100 hours of practical. Then in 2014 I started a two year Crystal Therapy Diploma with an ACHO (Association of Crystal Healing Organisations) registered school. During my time training as a Crystal Therapist I also completed an ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology with the Academy of Reflexology and Massage in Northamptonshire. I wanted to broaden my skills and try something a little more 'hands on'.
I love what I do, meeting new people and helping them towards a more positive and healthier way of living, seeing their lives improve and knowing I had a part to play in their new found happiness makes all the hard work worthwhile. I wouldn't want to do anything else.
