Testimonials from consultations and trainings with Rachel

Frozen Field

Thank you so much for everything you have offered in these sessions. You really have created a wonderful space to enable us all to drop into our own presence. It is beautiful to experience and awesome to behold... I have learned so much about myself and about holding space and being present.


Wise, compelling and inspirational teachings.

I found 'Relaiming Emotional Wellbeing' thought provoking and inspiring for myself and for client work.

It deepened my understanding of working with essences and their practical applications.


Rachel's teaching style is spacious and yet clear and precise.

Rachel is gracious and gentle but also insightful and direct. The whole course was organised in a very coherent manner, one building block on top of another until a full picture was seen. There was plenty of space for questions and conversations. At every point of the journey I felt valued and seen.

Wonderful! I felt the wisdom and thoughtfulness around both the subject matter and delivery. I appreciated the deep way Rachel listened to questions, resulting in thoughtful answers. All info was presented without judgement of situations/people, which promotes empathy & kindness and was a positive example of how to approach these situations & people. Also, I witnessed how a teacher could collect thoughts and respond calmly, and not have it be disruptive with a huge pause. Knowledge of the subject matter and experience are at play in this exchange, and it was lovely to see in action.

I always enjoy participating in Rachel's courses because she not only has a depth of knowledge and experience but her deep stillness and wisdom hold a space that is truly nourishing and heart opening. I always feel like I've been filled up with love whenever I've been in her presence.

From the very first session, I felt and deeply sensed Rachel's amazing ability to hold space; even through online training, I felt it strongly and it was quite emotional and 'meditative'. Everything was so natural with Rachel and her deep, thoughtful presentation made the course so lovely and experiential and you knew her answers/responses to questions came from a place of genuine knowing, wisdom and experience.

Rachel's responses to sharing some of my insights throughout the course were very encouraging for me and has helped me to continue to move back along the path to working more closely with Essences.

Life changing. My wish to consider and learn more about spirituality was surpassed. Words and phrases like ‘unscripted’, ‘quieten, soften, trust’, ‘my life is my practice’, ‘we are waiting for our souls to catch us up’ and the exercises pre session were all illuminating. And, in the case of teachings around alignment and relationships they have been life changing.

Rachel facilitated the sessions with gentleness, honesty, compassion, openness, nurture, clarity and respect. I couldn’t have asked or hoped for anymore. I will never forget these 6 sessions - they have been life changing and life affirming.


Thank you so much for your support. And I must say that I am blown away by your book, Wild and Sacred Medicine.

I feel soothed and calmed and back to rights. 

I always feel back to myself when I speak to you or read your words - it happens within moments.

I don't know how you do that!

It's like you see the joy of being, and you bring that out so that we can see it. 

It's just incredible.



I haven't been able to find the words to express how much your Soul Reading has meant to me. 

There have been so many moments since where a part of it came to me when I needed it. 

It is possibly one of the most profoundly healing and meaningful experiences I've had on my journey so far. 

I was on the verge of giving up and shutting down completely just before, but it has helped me find my way again. 

I'll always be grateful to you Rachel for such a precious gift.

[The Practitioner Mentoring Space] was a beautifully held gentle space that I looked forward to returning to each month. An online sanctuary that provided an anchor to my deepest core self, beyond the external noise of a chaotic world. Each session left me feeling more rooted and centered within myself which has not only supported my personal journey but has allowed me to take that grounded and peaceful presence into my work to be that anchor for my clients. Thank you both so much!

I am 80 years old and I do not think I have ever been listened to in the way that Rachel listens. I feel held in stillness.

It feels like something sacred.


We don't stop growing and learning and feeling just because we get old. I have shedded so much 'stuff' that I didn't need since starting to work with Rachel and, more and more, I feel great waves of tenderness and peace within me.

Tenderness. Gentleness. Acceptance. 

These are the three words that sum up how it feels in a session with Rachel.

What is remarkable is how that is now becoming the way I am with myself and others.  I don't know how this has happened but I am very grateful that it has.

The Practitioner Mentoring 


Thank you Rachel, I loved your energy, integrity and your for-ness. You inspired me for which I am most grateful. You have an innate sense of holding someone with love with a profound knowledge of the human needs and how to deliver and facilitate that which can be said, heard and absorbed. Evident when you held some of the people in our group who were floundering with some of the new learnings.



The Practitioner Mentoring 


I enjoyed being able to connect with other practitioners in a safe and compassionate zoom environment and discuss such profound universal and personal issues about the healing space; learning how to connect deeper within myself in relation to the healing space; and building trust not only with myself, but also with the process and the outcome. This has been a rich and enlightening learning experience.
