Over the past 18 months I have met so many wonderful people and have decided that I would let you know how I came to be here and how it all started. How did this beautiful pony become the start of my world with Bach Flower Remedies. I also want to introduce you to the world of remedies for animals – a new page for my website
I first started my training for Holistic therapies in 2000 when I wanted to find something relaxing to do! I studied Reflexology and Indian Head Massage over a period of a year. At this time, I also met a lovely lady who was to become my Reiki Master and she introduced me to a very different world and some truly wonderful people.
We bought my daughter a pony during 1997, he was a delightful pony, with plenty of spirit and character and was very much loved. Moonbeam’s feisty behaviour led to many conversations within the stable yard, especially when he would launch himself at the field gate every morning – along with the head collar and lead rope, really quite dangerous for both pony and handler. This ultimately led to a conversation with a local lady who worked with Bach Flower Remedies – we had a long conversation about Moonbeam and she gave me a small brown bottle with some remedies – and the instructions were to give to Moonbeam for the next 30 days.
We duly applied the remedy to carrots and apple – and on the third day we put him out into the field, and he walked out as quiet as a lamb. The charging behaviour promptly stopped, and he never did it again for the next 20 years. Moonbeam passed in 2017. The remedies never changed his character, but they did change his emotions and eased his fears.
This was a momentous event for me. I knew I had a passion for Holistic Therapies, but I also realised my desire to help people. I did an introductory Bach Flower course at a local college and then took myself off to Wallingford in Oxford to study my level 2 in Bach Flower Remedies. Studying in the house where Dr Bach worked and lived and looking at the amazing garden from where he grew the plants he used as tinctures was amazing. At this point in time the qualification allowed me to use the remedies to help with my other therapies – my Reiki, reflexology and by now I had also studied Kinesiology and become a Touch for Health Therapist. I took my Bach Flower practitioner course in 2013 and have been able to work properly as a counsellor with the remedies from then.
Over the last 9 years I have been lucky enough to work very successfully with many clients – looking at a wide variety of anxieties and problems. I have many thanks to say to that wonderful little pony Moonbeam who was responsible for teaching me about these amazing remedies.
I was then of course furloughed on April 1st 2020 and turned my back on the Corporate world and ventured into the world of self-employment and Bach Remedies and that’s where we are now/
