About Sanctuary Home Healing
Sanctuary Home Healing…. Bringing inner peace to you in your home….
Sometimes all we need is to give ourselves some time to heal. Sometimes we find it difficult to allow ourselves this time to heal. Sometimes life gets in the way of us being able to heal.
Sanctuary Home Healing is a new service which allows a professional, fully-insured therapist to visit you in your own home and set up a little sanctuary where you can give yourself some time to heal.
I offer Massage (ladies only), Pregnancy Massage, Reiki, Reflexology and Emotional Freedom Techniques (E.F.T) as a mobile service in the Portsmouth, Havant, Emsworth and Chichester areas.
This service is perfect for during pregnancy, for busy mums, for the elderly and for house-bound clients.
I have been a holistic therapist for 8 years and have worked with many clients privately. I had a treatment room in The Quiet Mind Centre in Southsea for many years. I have also practiced as a mobile therapist. I currently do office-based massage at Portsmouth City Council. I have also worked with Portsmouth Adoption Services providing massage to the staff and relaxation sessions to adoption mothers and daughters. I have worked in the Royal Albert Day Centre giving hand massage to the elderly ladies and massage to the staff.
My interest is in mental health as well as holistic health. I believe that the body and mind are interconnected and that by healing the mind we heal our physical body too. With the increasing pace of daily life and the pressures and demands we all experience, our minds need healing more than ever. Often, physical aches and pains are a result of a pattern of negative thinking and unresolved stress and mental tension.
I have worked in The Day Treatment Centre at The Orchards, St James Hospital as a volunteer co-ordinator in the group therapy sessions. This was mainly offering mindfulness based therapy to people with mental health issues.
As a teenager, I suffered with anxiety and panic attacks, so this is an area where I can particularly empathise with and offer support.
I have a general understanding of other mental health issues and offer my full unconditional acceptance and positive regard for all people, whatever they may be experiencing in their lives. My wish is that I can help people to find a sense of inner peace, a sanctuary in their mind, a safe place where they can feel rested and receive healing and relaxation from one of my treatments.
I have 3 children and have completed the following qualifications, whilst being a stay-at-home mum and practicing therapist.

I have been meditating for about 15 years. I meditate daily, have attended a 2 day meditation retreat and am happy to offer guidance on how to incorporate meditation into your life.
I use Bach Remedies at home for healing purposes and although I am not a Bach Practitioner, I can offer guidance if there is a need for Bach remedies to be used.
I have completed a year long Counselling Skills course and I am a counselling skills user which means within the session, you can be assured that you are genuinely being listened to and offered empathy and warmth, which may assist in your healing.
I am a great believer in present moment awareness (The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle) and positive affirmations (You Can Heal Your Life, Louise Hay) and I also try to incorporate parts of the Buddhist philosophy into my life. I am certain you will feel my positive and calm energy within your healing session.
