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 healing 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.

It was the late 1990s when Deborah began her journey of the healing arts.  She took studies 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 experienced a deep Spiritual awakening; intuition and sensitive to energy Deborah can well detect a persons inner motives.  

Deborah loves nature and in her spare time will record videos of local natural habitats and upload these into the Reiki support group she has created to supplement student experience; there is often distance healing too.

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 the Director of Calm Oasis School of Reiki, a Usui Reiki Master, Practitioner and teacher.  Deborah holds Diplomas in the various therapies she practices and teaches along with her Reiki degrees certifications.  Deborah is also registered and a holds membership with the Guild of Holistic therapists. 

Deborah's courses are designed to meet the UK national occupational standards and core skills curriculum and so provide students skills that can possibly provide employment. Deborah really wants to help you achieve your dreams and aspirations. Udemy is the ideal platforms for this as it allows lifetime access to affordable courses that are accessible worldwide and 24 hours a day... how much better can it get?

Deborah is dedicated to sharing healing gifts of Reiki and each Tuesday evening shares Reiki distance healing in her free facebook group; this is a free healing to all who wish to join and recieve.  Deborah is mindful of the suffering experienced by people in war torn zones and the conflicts of humaity and so during these weekly sessions expends Reiki to those areas too with the soul intention that those who wish to recieve do so freely with purity of love and deep compassion.
