About Debbie-Ann

Debbie-AnnAs a Holistic Therapy Practitioner and Teacher, with over 30 years experience of working with people of all ages, both as a Qualified Nurse (SRN 1983 – 2007) and since 2001 as a Holistic Therapist, I have an understanding of health and wellbeing from several perspectives.

For as long as I can remember I have been interested in health and healing…  

The therapies I practice are part of my everyday life… I know how good they make me feel and this is what I share with you.

I realise that daily self-healing Reiki allows me to grow and develop on all levels.  So this is how I start and end my day.  Meditating and saying the Gokai – The 5 Principles of Reiki for inviting happiness and health. An important part of the Original Reiki teachings of Mikao Usui that I have learnt through studying Jikiden Reiki.

Aromatherapy enhances my life, not just with beautiful aromas to invigorate or relax me.  It helps me clean and care for my body, my family and my home.  I use essential oils in my cooking and they are my fragrant pharmacy, a must when I travel no matter how small the baggage allowance gets!  They are part of my essential first aid kit, along with the simple natural healing techniques I’ve learnt through Jikiden Reiki.  I could go on…

Though I enjoyed working as a Nurse for many years I came to realise I wanted to help people, to help themselves.  Not just be part of a system that fixes the “bit” that has gone “wrong”… be more proactive at supporting people as individuals to achieve and maintain wellbeing… however that person defines it.

I believe passionately in working with people and empowering people… Offering you my skills, knowledge and experience… For Your Achievable WellBeing.

October 2012 I won the “Cornwall Celebrates Volunteering Awards – School Volunteer”  Thanks to the kind words of Rob Smith (Former Assistant Head) who wrote about me and the difference that my “Massage session” had made to the lives of the staff and pupils at Doubletrees School; an all age Special Educational Needs (SEN) School. With the Early Years Lead, Nicola Rowland, I developed Parent Partnership Workshops, bringing the benefits of these unique massage and positive touch sessions into the homes of pupils.  Having volunteered my skills and services as a Holistic Therapist for 7 years, I still pop in occasionally…
