In these times, there is an increasingly urgent need for health practitioners who are grounded in a holistic model of health, who work in harmony with the intelligence of the body-mind and who empower their clients to understand and take full responsibility for their own wellbeing.

Currently, the need to consciously care for our health in a truly holistic way, in harmony with self and planet, is becoming ever more pressing. We are living through a time of great transition that is rapidly making visible those things that are no longer viable or sustainable in our modern approach to life. 


The prevailing modern medical paradigm is an example of this, seeing disease as an enemy to be feared and leaving patients feeling helpless and disempowered. When a person’s health is taken out of their hands and put into the hands of an expert, they lose their sense of their own ability to impact their own wellbeing. Yet eighty percent of modern illnesses are lifestyle related. A person's daily choices and health care matter.

Only when the innate self-healing capacity within
each of us is recognised and harnessed 
via gentle 
and natural means
 can a true restoration of health begin.

The confusion of information out there - in the media, from health professionals, on products, in communities - means that many people no longer feel clear about how to support their own health. The result is that people are living longer and sicker than they ever have, with more mental illness, and with an increased sense of isolation.


It is no surprise then that so many are looking beyond the medical paradigm and turning to alternative therapies.


There has never been a more pressing need for practitioners with the skill, insight and compassion to help a person come back to their own innate wellbeing.

Individualised holistic healing is vital in these times.


Rachel Singleton:  Rachel has been working in the areas of intuitive healing and health consciousness since 1996. As the founder of LightBringer Essences, she has been deeply immersed in plant medicine for over 20 years. Through the teachings of the plants and her work with clients, Rachel has come to see how insight, awareness and presence are vital in transformational healing. She is the author of Wild and Sacred Medicine, has trained and mentored practitioners in the UK and abroad, and has helped hundreds of clients over the years. In recent times, an understanding of the ‘Three Principles’ - the work of Sydney Banks - has deepened her work further. To find out more, go to the About Rachel page of this website

Ian Watson:  Ian has worked in the field of natural healing and personal transformation since 1988. He founded The Lakeland College in 1993 and has been involved in the training of thousands of homeopathic practitioners around the world. He has written & published four books, delivered hundreds of seminars & retreats, and spent many years specialising in emotional & psychological health. Since 2011, Ian’s work has been transformed by an understanding of the principles of innate wellbeing discovered by the late Sydney Banks. 

To find out more about Ian Watson, go to:


Never has the human body and psyche been so bombarded with stressors: environmental toxins and radiation, the pollution of our air and water, the fast and stressful pace of living and the underlying pressure to achieve, highly processed and chemical-laden foods, unnatural working and living environments, and so much more. And all of this slips into our daily lives without us noticing most of the time. It all appears quite normal. Yet these stressors all add up to hundreds of large and little assaults on our health daily - and they have a cumulative effect.

How do we stay resilient in the face of this?
How do we recover our health sense so that we can navigate the modern world with grace and ease?


When we actively tend the body and psyche in the face of traumas, large and little, with natural and safe treatments, the body-mind does not have to carry the imprint of this trauma into the future. Instead, we are able to receive the gift of the challenge: the possibility to develop a stronger immune system after an illness, to become more thoughtful and aware about our direction after a setback, to become richer and more at ease in our psyche after weathering strong emotions, to become more deeply aware of our Self's needs through learning what constantly (and impeccably) does not work for us.

There is a healing cycle that we go through during any acute illness or trauma that takes us to a point of resolution. When we follow this cycle healthfully, we emerge stronger, having gone through a rite of passage: we land on a new shore; we are subtly but permanently transformed. This gift of transformation is part and parcel of the healing journey. And yet modern medicine has lost sight of this. And the loss of this impacts us greatly. Illness becomes something to fear and suppress, setbacks are failures, strong emotions are to be avoided at all costs, and suffering onwards is just the way life is. What if none of this were true?

As a Holistic Healing Practitioner, we get to understand something very different. We remember our regenerative capacity, innate and inviolate, and we reconnect to this remembering in our life and work. Our role then becomes that of supporting and facilitating this same recognition in our clients, helping them to see how a deep tending of the Self's needs, mindfully and wisely, brings gifts beyond anything they can imagine.


We help them to live in harmony with their life force, rather than at odds with it .
