I believe that as the worlds health care systems come under ever greater pressure, and the medicines to treat illness become ever more expensive, and that their side-effects can and do cause more harm than good, that a new way of treating illness and disease is to be found in the old and ancient ways of the past, referred to by some as 'quackery' .  I have a vision, a dream, of helping as many of my fellow human beings, people around the world, through this medium of Udemy, to learn and empower themselves with holistic therapy tools that can aid the balancing of mind, body and Spirit; this is truly liberating and taking back responsibility of our own health, well-being and gives us more choices.  I believe our physical ailments are our soul crying out to be heard, to be healed - we are provided early warning signs and we must learn how to hear and interpret these.  What you learn here is life changing, liberating and a pathway to empowerment. 

Disclaimer:  Please note however these courses do not intend to provide nor replace seeking medical advice, investigation, treatment or referral to other health specialists.  If you believe you have any medical concerns or conditions please seek qualified professional help and care.

It was the late 1990s when Deborah began her journey of holistic therapy and healing arts; healing is not akin to curing; the body can heal itself therapies and therapists are conduits to assist the body to restore it's own balance.  Deborah studied in Swedish Body Massage, Aromatherapy, Indian head massage, Reflexology, Hot stone therapy, Hopi ear candling, and many more courses.  It was during this time that Deborah was attuned to Reiki, and a little later Seichem, and experienced a deep Spiritual awakening.

Deborah digressed into nursing which provided many, many opportunities for learning and although this was not her path found Reiki to be deeply calming and supportive for elderly people with Dementias, and people with mental illness type issues.  Deborah has worked with traumatised souls infusing Reiki into her time with them.  

Deborah is a Usui Reiki Master, Practitioner and holistic therapist.  Deborah holds Diplomas in the various therapies she practices and shares along with her Reiki degrees certifications.  Deborah is also registered and a holds membership with the Guild of Holistic therapists. 

When creating these Udemy courses Deborah has been mindful of the UK national occupational standards and core skills curriculum and whilst the courses shared are unaccredited do aim to meet those standards and students are advised these are for educational and informational purposes only.  

Should you wish to learn any holistic therapy courses in the UK you will most likely be required to conduct in person training, at an accredited centre, which can be fairly expensive and have additional fees; registration, books and manuals, travel costs and certification can all add up.  But to become an accredited holistic therapy school there are huge fees involved too.

Deborah will update courses with additional information around accreditation etc as it becomes available.
