THE SUBTLE, THE INTUITIVE AND THE HOLISTIC
For over 20 years, I have worked in the field of wellbeing. I trained initially in homeopathy, energy healing and flower essences - profound but gentle therapies that work with the innate wellbeing of the body and our 'vital force' to help restore flow in the body-being. I went looking for holistic health support because of my own needs (to find out more about my personal journey back to health, click here to listen to some of the podcast interviews I have done).
At first, my clients came to me for physical ailments, but I soon began to see that whilst this was what brought a person to the door, it was not what they came for.
More and more, I found myself working with the a person's deep alignment to their Self.
In 2000, I founded a unique range of flower essences, and, spent over two decades in communion with the plant kingdom. I consider this experience to have been a profound 'inner training' for me, shamanic in nature, and far beyond anything that I could have received on a course. This spontaneous and beautiful communion taught me many things: it showed me Nature's incredible gifts and sentience and how we humans are part of this; it helped me to see what healing really is; I found myself guided back to my own wisdom and my personal sovereignty; and I began to learn how to listen for and appreciate the numinous and nuanced in people and life.
I started to understand that we humans are spiritual and sentient beings who have come here to live in the full expression of our nature . . . to blossom like flowers. And I knew that I wished to serve this blossoming in others.
THE WELL OF BEING
During this period, I experienced my own transformational journey from chronic illness to vibrant health. This showed me the impact and power of what I was learning. My own deep Self - my wisdom - knew how to guide me.
I began to see that we have within us a well of being - and we can be in the expression and the experience of this, or not. The more we sit in quiet presence with ourselves, the more we hear the deep truth of our own nature guiding us, and the more our native vitality can flourish in beautiful ways. When we are 'lined up' with ourselves, we find that there is an infinite source of wisdom - or intelligence - within us that will guide us in any and all situations.
As I began to recognise the feel and touch of this in myself, and heed its guidance, my chronic health problems suddenly and easily fell away. I realised I had never really allowed myself to Be. I had not being trusting my own wisdom.
Standing in the sweetness of my own truth, I found my whole life changing.
AN UNDERSTANDING OF CONSCIOUSNESS
In more recent times, I came across the teachings of Sydney Banks, known as the Three Principles. These beautiful teachings brought together everything I had felt, sensed and intuited so far. I began to experience a deep peace within my being, and to glimpse the extraordinary truth that we are spiritual in nature. This understanding changed everything for me.
In the time since, I have become a Three Principles Coach and Teacher. It is my joy to work with individuals and groups, to explore and deepen into the innate wisdom that sits in the centre of our being, and live a life more luminous from here.
We are energetic beings, living in an energetic Universe, infused with Divine consciousness.
We are numinous, light-filled, sentient and responsive.
When we rest in the knowing of this, we find our peace and our potency.
“And in this game of life, we all search for ourselves. When I say selves, I mean ‘inner selves’, the thing that created the life in the first place. Now consciously, most of us are not aware of this. But if you’re searching for happiness; if you’re searching for tranquility; if you’re searching just to have a nice, peaceful, loving, understanding life... in actual fact, you're searching for your inner self.”

"Rachel brings a rare combination of intuitive knowing, spiritual understanding and grounded practicality to her work. It’s a joy to work with someone who meets you at the soul level as well as the human level."
- Ian Watson
"From the moment I read Rachel’s words and heard her voice I knew I wanted to work with her. She evoked in me something that had been longing to emerge, something I recognised at the deepest level of my being but didn’t know how to truly embody and live from.
Rachel has a rare ability to come from a place of true wisdom and she exudes a beautiful quality of stillness imbued with inner strength.
Through shining her own light, through being in her loving presence, I have come to see my own well-being as the foundation of who I am. My belief that there was something intrinsically wrong with me - and all that comes with that belief - is falling away, allowing that “something”, that beautiful something, to emerge through me, so I too can embody my truth, be present and shine my light. Thank you, Rachel, with all my heart."
- Ollie Jenkins
"Rachel is such a beautiful and authentic being.
Working with her is delightful, she brings in a most authentic resonance of kindness, wise presence and love.
I feel that every session is precious and unique, reflecting the many riches that can arise from a connected space. Sessions resonate far beyond the actual meetings, revealing a life beyond any limiting thought."
