2017 saw us on the move again. Family ties were calling us back into England and we had to answer that call. After much soul searching and looking at maps of England we decided that Lincolnshire best met our needs. From the mountains of Snowdonia to the Fens of Lincolnshire.
We were back to square one again as far as the business was concerned and knew absolutely no one here.
We allowed ourselves some time off to get to know the area and settle in then we started to let people know we were here. Facebook, ads in community magazines, the website had been updated from day one. We had a taster day at a local community centre and even tried an MBS event.
Catherine was regularly returning to North Wales to complete her Crystal Therapy Diploma and teaching Reiki in Cheshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire where we have connections but we needed to get ourselves known here.
Then the phone started ringing. Most people had found us by good old Google. Catherine decided that she still wished to volunteer with Hospice patients and started to do half a day a week as a Reiki Practitioner. Her teaching practice started to grow.
With her Crystal Therapy Diploma completed in Spring 2018 and knowing that she wanted to teach this therapy to others felt that she should experience another teachers style to give her some direction as to how she could deliver her own workshops. She returned to our roots and completed The Crystal Healer Philip Permutt's course up to and including teacher level. Other developments took place in this time which opened up another opportunity to teach but that's not for now....
As you may have gathered by now Catherine is the 'Seeker' in the team with an insatiable thirst for knowledge. Trying new ideas and modalities to see whether they are worth pursuing not only for her own wellbeing but for others and where appropriate to share that knowledge through teaching.
John is and always will be a Reflexologist. He keeps up to date with new thoughts and techniques through Continuing Professional Development travelling wherever the latest course dictates. He is a committed clinical Reflexologist specialising in Spinal Reflexology and Cancer Care but not exclusively. He is in the process of writing and developing some self help Reflexology workshops so watch this space.....
Next time we will start to share with you our experiences of different courses and how they have helped us to develop our identity .
