Hi I'm Claire! Self healing and personal development have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. This has led me on a journey to explore many different healing modalities such as Reiki, Reflexology, Yoga, Meditation, Naturopathy, Indian Head massage and Kirtan (mantra meditation). It is through working on ones own self healing that we can then assist others in their own.
I am a registered Reiki Master practitioner with the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) and member of the UK Reiki Federation. I have been practising Reiki and Yoga since 2003 and I am also a Yoga teacher with classes in Bridgend and Cardiff and lead regular workshops in Kirtan.
I specialise in Reiki and offer one hour treatments in Bridgend including a free consultation. I aim to bring the person back into a sense of balance and to support their own healing. I am able to offer nutritional and lifestyle advice that may support them with this.
Join me and discover for yourself how these practices can heal, transform and find the light within!

Chanting and Chai
Sunday 6th October 2019 10am-12pm at Parc Slip Visitor's Centre CF32 0EH
Join us for a morning of Kirtan followed by chai, chat and a delicious and nutritious treat!
Kirtan is part of the Bhakti yoga path or the yoga of love and devotion. It involves singing of mantras repetitively which has an uplifting and calming effect on the mind.
You do not need to be a good singer, it is simply singing from the heart. You also do not not need to sing, simply come along and listen. Traditionally the mantras are in Sanskrit but it is not important to know the meaning of the words but the energy and feelings that singing those mantras creates.
It can be a deeply transformative practice and can lead to feelings of joy and peace.
I will be joined by fellow Cardiff Kirtan Group leaders Jon and Dave and will be using a variety of instruments to accompany the mantras.
Please bring something to sit on and maybe a bottle of water.
Cost is £8 which includes chai and a sweet treat.
Please contact me for more information or to book your place
Bookings can be made via Paypal for £8
