The Healing Room (Reiki-Reflexology-Tarot)

Helen is both an amazing Tutor and Therapist. I've trained with her in Reiki, Levels 1 and 2, and these courses have been fantastic experiences. I've also had a number of readings with Helen - always spot on and so intuitive. I can't recommend her enough! Thanks, Helen :)

Wonderful experience. Calming, restorative, I felt like a different person. The room is so lovely and such a haven of calm that you can't help but instantly relax. Helen's intuition is amazing, she told me things that I thought at the time could't possibly come true, and yet they did! She's an absolute gem.
