Dreamstone Holistics - Therapies & Training
Pontypool, United Kingdom
My original career path originated when I studied A level computer science, leading me into the world of software programming and IT and culminated in my being a Database Administrator. It was during this period of my life that I began to look for something different. In 1996 I re-started my IT career after several years as a full-time mother and wanted to discover who I am. This was the beginning of my interest in crystals and holistic healing.
My very first workshop was a Crystal Massage weekend and that became the launchpad for my desire to become a complementary therapist. I began with a course in Anatomy & Physiology, followed by a number of different crystal therapy courses ranging from correspondence course to formal classroom to a 2-year diploma course with ICGT.
Alongside this I began my Reiki path, initially for personal reasons, and achieved Reiki Master Teacher in 2005. I worked part-time in the world of IT as a qualified tutor for nearly 9 years before taking voluntary redundancy, during which time I continued to develop my skills as a therapist and further my knowledge in complementary therapies.
In 2012 I added Meditation Teacher Diploma (BSoM) & VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology Techniques to my skill-set then in the following years I completed Level 3 Diploma in Holistic Massage, Thai Foot Massage, On-Site Massage & Acupressure, Stress Management Practitioner Course, ITEC L3 Aromatherapy, Bach Flower Remedies levels 1 & 2, Hot Stones Reflexology, Holistic Facials, Bellabaci Cupping Technique, Acupressure Facial Therapy and much more.
In 2011 I finally took all the nudges and hints from the Universe to teach! Currently delivering Reiki Level 1, 2 and 3 MP and MT (https://www.reiki-therapy.wales), SKillfulMIND Meditation sessions, accredited courses in Crystal Therapy (https://www.crystal-therapy.wales) and one-day workshops on topics such as Meditation with Mandalas and Introduction to Crystals etc.
I have plans for a number of other workshops and courses in the pipeline too including online courses.
I can also be seen out and about at fairs and other events with my Travelling Crystals Stall and am often invited to be a guest speaker at local groups & events.
In 2018 I collaborated with a few other complementary therapists to organise holistic retreats in the lovely setting of Elan Valley. mid Wales and thus added retreat organiser to my skill-set.
