The Practitioner Space

As health practitioners, we wish to offer high quality, professional support for others.

However,  many practitioners often lack this support for themselves.


Having a space where you can listen into, reflect on and deepen your understanding of the holistic healing work you offer has a transformative effect on how you experience your work and the results your clients experience for themselves. Your skill and confidence increase exponentially, and your practice flourishes as a natural reflection of your inner growth.


Ian Watson and Rachel Singleton joined forces to offer such a space during the summer of 2020, and it has been our privilege to work with two practitioner groups during the past six months. During this time, we have witnessed practitioners letting go of what seemed to be burdening them or holding them back, deepening their trust in their own inner wisdom and finding their way back to a place of ease and enjoyment. We have heard many beautiful stories of how this has impacted positively on their work with clients and in their own personal lives.

“This programme was much deeper than I expected or thought I was ready for. Thank you Ian and Rachel for your support."

You will find yourself deeply immersed in your innate wisdom, the stillness of presence and the clarity of quiet contemplation. This will be a nurturing space for you personally, and also enable you to deepen into that very quality of healing presence and connection you wish to have in your work with clients.

In the Practitioner Mentoring Space sessions, we will explore some of the typical challenges that arise during our work; however, our full attention will take us upstream of these and any other so-called ‘issues'. We are going to be working with what is right with you and all that you offer, rather than what you might think is wrong with you and your practice.


We are both trained in the Three Principles understanding, which has had a profound impact on our work as practitioners and educators. Throughout the programme, we will be sharing with you what we have found to be most helpful to us in our daily work.


Each month, we have a theme for the session. These are as follows:

Session 1: Quiet Presence/Practising without Pressure                

Session 2: Uncovering Innate Wellbeing        

Session 3: Listening beyond Words

Session 4: What is Transformation?

Session 5: Deepening Trust/Navigating Inner Wisdom

'I have learnt that I can trust and honour my experiences and feelings, and express them to others. In expressing them, I 'see' more clearly, and they become a stepping stone for new learning and experience. A flow of development.'

Shiela Heaton-Ross

'From today, I can be of service to anyone and everyone who has a pulse and has breath in their bodies.'

Ann McCluskey:



It has been our experience that even the most competent practitioners can enhance their work with clients by becoming more deeply grounded and at ease within themselves. Through having a dynamic, professional space in which to reflect and deepen, we rediscover joy and passion for our work and gain clarity about what it is we have to offer that is a true expression of our own unique gifts.


The Practitioner Mentoring Space is a space for you to step into with curiosity, opening to the potential for deep shifts in your work.


There is so much to being a practitioner.


These meetings offer space for you to find your way with key aspects of this, to explore your own responses and experiences, and to listen to the insights and reflections of other like-minded professionals. Confidential, gentle and thoughtful, the Practitioner Mentoring Space offers time for  you to refresh and recollect yourself each month.


Sitting in dynamic presence together, insights come,

awareness deepens and answers emerge.

'A nurturing space where I could take time out to reflect in a very deep way, while feeling supporting within the group dynamic. I also loved listening to the wisdom shared by Ian and Rachel through their reflections. . . The programme has allowed me to take my understanding of presence to an even deeper level and I've enjoyed the opportunity to explore all aspects of what this means in practice and in my daily life.'

About 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 spirit 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 showing her that all experiences are, at their core, spiritual. 

About 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 helped to train thousands of homeopathic practitioners around the world.

He has written & published four homeopathic 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. He is now finding ways to combine this understanding with his work in the healing arts.

'The pace is just right . . . I've learned to relax and wait, and my priorities have changed!'

Through the Practitioner Mentoring Space I am 'moving towards the path of ease, quiet presence and the healing power of stillness . . . [knowing] the consultation is enough.. . . Feeling a lightness, ease and joy coming into my practise that I feel nourished and energised by.'
