My name is Elizabeth Slingsby and I live in my home town of Preston, in the north west of England. It is now around twenty five years since I discovered that it is possible, and ‘natural’, for us to heal each other and ourselves, and so I began to work as a Healer, and subsequently opened my Healing Practice which I still run from my home in Preston.
I initially gained accreditation for my healing work from The Association of Professional Healers,and subsequently a City and Guilds 7307 Stage 1 Teaching Skills Certificate, enabling me to teach adults in colleges. I have found the qualification in Teaching Skills invaluable in creating my Reiki Courses. I also became accepted by Lancashire County Council Adult Learning as a Tutor. My work in Healing and Teaching others how to become Healers is my passion and I sincerely hope that it is a passion which I pass on to my Reiki Students. I have for a number of years now also been a member of the NHS Directory Of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners having met the criteria for inclusion in the Directory.
In addition I discovered after working as a Healer for a while that an important aspect of the healing process is to listen and be present for those who need to explore what troubles them. I felt as a listener and Counsellor it was important that I was fulfilling this aspect of my work in the best interests of my clients. As a result I gained my Level 2 Person Centred Counselling Certificate from Preston College. More recently I qualified as a Hypnotherapist which I find to be a deceptively effective therapy. I also have a Diploma in Past Life Therapy which is work that I continue to find fascinating and intriguing. It has been said that to be a Healer is not something you do, but something you are. I believe this applies to most (if not all) good Healers. Their work is not restricted to the healing session as such, but is something which emanates from them in all their dealings with others. We must all have met someone whose company leaves us feeling refreshed or uplifted and this for me, is the essence of healing and continues to be something I aspire to. be
The name of my website sums up my wish for all of us, a wish that I firmly believe will eventually come to pass, if we are able to focus on all the good things taking place around us, and can resist being brought down by the bombardment of ‘bad news’ aimed at us every day. I believe we can make a difference to the world around and within us, more than we perhaps realise, by spreading our own individual kindness and understanding toward others wherever possible. My aim is to be of service in helping my clients and students to help themselves and each other to make this earth a more peaceful planet to live on, and, toward becoming more aware of the universal nature of each one of us and our lives; and the things we have in common rather than our differences.
With my very best wishes to all who have taken the time to read this page. I look forward to meeting you one day.
