Passing on kindness, gratitude and compassion
I was raised on the Southside of Chicago. My parents were both paediatricians and active in the Civil Rights and the Peace Movements of the 1960’s and 70’s. As an empathic child, they were inspiring role models for me. My parents’ passion and devotion to helping others has been instilled in me and my two brothers.
Moving to London in my early 20’s, I trained and worked as a Management Accountant for companies ranging from independent businesses to large business such as Xerox.
Moving to Bath and the beginning of my healing journey
My husband Nick and I moved to Bath in 1999 with our two young children. The youngest was just 8 weeks old and the other, 5 years. Within a short time, I met and became friends with a wonderful couple who introduced me to the world of meditation and healing.
I had been seeing a homoeopath for years in London and was very interested in holistic health. With young children having the usual childhood ailments, along with my own chronic bladder issues, I began studying shamanic and ancient types of healing. I wanted to help my family and myself to be healthier and happier. That learning and healing journey combined, was so life enriching and expanding. Of course, the journey continues…
When I first met Reiki, there were tears
I first ‘met’ Reiki at The College of Psychic Studies, it was a module included as one of the topics. A lovely woman (a hypnotherapist) and I were paired to work together. We took turns sharing Reiki with each other, using the skills we were taught on the course.
When I finished the 20 minute session, she sat up from the massage couch and cried. She said to me ‘I’ve never felt so loved in my life’. At that moment I knew I needed to learn as much as I could about Reiki to help others.
Soon after that amazing experience, I began to study Reiki. And some years later, to my repertoire I added Energy Clearing and Feng Shui for living spaces. I was excited to be able to help with the healing and balance ‘the oneness of self and environment’.
I’ve been a Reiki master since 2008 and have also been teaching since then. I’ve had a private practice in Bath and London and I now regularly teach Reiki in Bath, both privately and at The Bath College.
Meeting the Thetahealing Technique®
Shanti Faiia I met a few years ago. I immediately felt a deep connection with her and I had a few ThetaHealing sessions with her. I found them enormously transformative, helping to positively change my belief systems and outlook on life.
She is a certified ThetaHealing Technique teacher and practitioner and soon felt I had the deep need to continue my healing journey and practitioner development, by studying with her.
As a certified ThetaHealing practitioner, I now use it alongside Reiki and Shamanic healing. It’s so wonderful to have the knowledge and ability to effectively use all of these wonderful healing techniques together.
With this set of expertise, I enable the healing of people and places, energy clearing and Feng Shui for you and your home.
“When you cling to one set idea, you can’t respond to changes. Most people think that illness should be left entirely up to doctors. There is a certain degree of truth in that assumption, but I also believe that we can respond to illness by realizing that we ourselves are not only the patient but to some extent our own doctors as well.”

What clients say about Heidi
“The sessions themselves are very relaxing to the point that I occasionally fall asleep. After the sessions Heidi feeds back information from the session that is always useful and intuitive. On one occasion, I had a moderate pain, which disappeared after the Reiki.”
“Heidi is an excellent Reiki practitioner. She seems to have a special gift in using energy medicine to help people to heal. I love her sessions, they are always comforting, deeply relaxing and enjoyable. Afterwards, I sleep deeply and feel energised the day after.”
“I feel as though I’ve had a whole nights sleep!“
“Having a Reiki session with Heidi is always something I look forward to. No matter how rushed or distracted I might have been when I arrive, Heidi is always able to slow me down and help me to feel calm and peaceful.”
