Lauren D'Silva BA (Jt Hons), PGCE, Principal TSCT
I am an experienced healer, teacher and writer offering crystal therapy, colour therapy, gem essences, channelled healing, hypnosis and spiritual guidance. I'm based in Mid Wales but have clientèle worldwide.
Transformation, personal empowerment and spiritual development are the hallmarks of my healing and teaching style. I want to help you discover your strengths and find your best self.
As Principal of Touchstones School of Crystal Therapy I teach in Mid Wales, Swindon and Glastonbury. I can provide courses further afield depending on group numbers.
I'm a fully qualified teacher with twenty five years of teaching experience, I taught English, Drama and Health Education in Secondary Schools, before specialising in Health Education and leading the Healthy Schools Programme for Leicestershire, providing training and support for teachers.
When I moved to Wales I left the mainstream world of Education behind to focus on my work as a Crystal Therapist. I have taught Crystal Therapy to Diploma level for twelve years. I cater for all levels of experience and expertise, providing for the complete novice right up to those who have already completed a therapy qualification and are looking for professional development, additional skills and techniques.
I am proud to be the current Chair of the Affiliation of Crystal Healing Organisations (ACHO). We set and promote high standards for teaching Crystal Therapy in the UK. We also maintain a Practitioner Register for Crystal Therapists who hold ACHO recognised qualifications.
Touchstones Manual for the Crystal Therapist was published in August 2013. This is the ideal accompaniment to any Crystal Therapy course and supports the ACHO core curriculum. The Manual is the main text book for my Foundation and Certificate courses. TSCT Foundation students receive a complementary copy of the black and white edition when they have paid their booking deposit and are accepted on a course.
The Manual is also ideal if you have crystals and wonder how you can use them for healing.
My first book, Light behind the Angels, exploring my own past life journey, was published in 2010 and was nominated for the People's Book Prize. Past life regression has long been one of my particular interests as this rewarding work has such transformational potential, however I wasn't expecting such an epic past life story to emerge spontaneously in my own life. The revelations have been far reaching and are still unfolding. I am a fully initiated High Priestess and I'm available to officiate at Handfastings and other Rites of Passage. Steve Deeks-D'Silva My husband, Steve Deeks-D'Silva, is a trained Crystal Therapist and an experienced Shaman. He is adept at observing subtle energies. Steve specialises in the removal of stuck and unhelpful energies from people and places and can work with you wherever you are in the world. Visit his Entity Removal site.
