Cathie's holistic journey started about 15 years ago. Her Mum had been diagnosed with osteoporosis (thinning of the bones), and had been told there was nothing that could help.


She started attending evening classes that dealt with Holistic therapies and Natural remedies, feeling sure there was something that would help her Mum's condition.


Reflexology grabbed her attention, and she enrolled on an evening course which enabled her to treat family and friends.


Having gained some experience with encouraging results, Cathie went on to qualify as a Reflexologist with The British School of Reflexology in 1995, and has since attended several advanced courses.

Now on  a role, Cathie decided to take on another therapy. She was drawn to Reiki. Was attuned to Reiki I in '96, then Reiki II the following year.

In the Summer of that year, Cathie left her part-time job of 14years with Sainsbury's, to work full time at the Crystal Healing Centre where she had taken her Reiki training. Although varied, her main job was assistant to the Centre's Reiki Master.


In January '97, Cathie became self-employed, giving therapies from home, but also helping out in the Centre when it suited her.


In June '99 she undertook her Reiki Masters, and began teaching at the Centre in January 2000, going back to full time employment. This consisted of teaching Reiki at all levels, serving in the shop, giving treatments, organising the Monday night talks & weekend workshops, attending the in-house Crystal and Meditation courses, working the late night on Mondays, and running the monthly Reiki Share Group, plus lots more.


With 3 years experience under her belt, Cathie left and became attached to another Centre in Barton-le-Clay, teaching Reiki and Crystals, and giving treatments in a self-employed capacity. She also ran a monthly Reiki Share Group there.


In 2004, Cathie obtained her City & Guilds 7302 (delivering learning) Certificate, and her VTCT Level 3 Reiki Diploma,     to satisfy herself that she was teaching to a good standard.

In 2005 two new Reiki Share Groups started. One in Sandridge Village Hall, which has now changed to the Transformational Evening Talks, and one at the Bliss Pilates Studio in Cottonmill Lane, St.Albans, which is still going.

Spring of that year saw the birth of the Healing Connections Magazine. A joint venture for Cathie and her therapy friend Gary Sellors. Cathie is very proud of this achievement, Gary is now back on board looking after the website once again.


Cathie is now working from home. She runs small workshops, and monthly Reiki Share Groups. She also gives Reflexology, Reiki and Crystal treatments, and as of last year she is now a qualified Indian Head Massage therapist, all of which she loves doing.
