Hello! I’m Sarah, Halcyon’s owner and principle Therapist.
I have been interested in holistic therapies from an early age, after I grew up around my Aunt’s homeopathy clinic. In 2006, a friend left her job to set up her own therapy business and offered me a Reiki session to help with pain I had been experiencing on and off for years. I knew it would be relaxing but, I’m ashamed to say now, I wasn’t expecting it to help with my symptoms. I was amazed! Straight after the treatment, I bent down to pick up my car keys, which doesn’t sound like anything but it was the first time I’d been able to bend down for months! By the weekend, I had signed up with Reiki Evolution in York to do my Level I qualification. Level II Reiki followed in 2007 and I treated my friends and family for a couple of years before moving to Lancashire, where I began to treat my work colleagues in our lunch break.
I really enjoyed giving the Reiki treatments, but soon realised that some conditions required some physical interventions, as well. Learning more about Eastern and Western complimentary therapies, I decided to continue my qualifications with Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Massage from the School of Natural Health Sciences.
I became a ReikiMaster (Teacher) in 2010, having transformed my hobby into a professional enterprise (“Halcyon”) in 2009. I began to rent a room at a local beauty salon and treated clients in evenings and weekends alongside my “9-5 job”.
In 2012, I qualified as a K.O.R.E. Therapy consultant, which has transformed the way in which I work – as a treatment system, it makes so much sense to me; combining Eastern and Western techniques and balancing physical and energy work to provide effective treatment and longer-lasting impact.
I left my career in social care earlier this year and decided to run Halcyon full time. I am also now studying for a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to support my clients suffering with stress and emotional issues.
