Other therapies as with The College of Sound Healing have been developed in more recent years through rigorous research and evaluations, have been proven and are practised, and are now acknowledge and accredited by colleges and associations and recognised in the UK and worldwide. With my own developed therapeutic sound healing technique being registered in 2005 are a blending of the ancient with the new, embracing 21st. century technology and rekindling established techniques.

News in 2023
This year gives me the opportunity to happily ANNOUNCE that my Sounding Bowls Stress-Release Technique was successful in being registered with the Intellectual Property Office and given Trade Mark recognition as a therapeutic Therapy in its own right.
SOUNDING BOWLS STRESS - RELEASE TECHNIQUE
Harmonizing the Heart of the Matter
A therapy for connecting you to your inner wisdom for well being
Vibrational Sound Resonance
This therapy incorporates the use of both Sounding Bowl and voice soundwork.
Sounding bowls are unique in the history of world instruments, partly because their strings run within the resonant space, whereas other instruments have them running above it . A number of types of sounding bowls are in use in therapeutic settings, and used by health professionals and music therapists. The aesthetic qualities, as well as the pure beauty of the sound when played, have lead to deeper levels of emotional engagement, enhancing therapeutic well-being.
Over the years, Faith’s work with these unique instruments have brought her insight into how the pure, gentle, subtle tones of the sounding bowls seem to touch the deepest places in the heart and soul. These beautiful sounds seem to form a link between the inner life of the individual and the source of all being. On first seeing the instrument, clients are struck with wonder and anticipation. This receptiveness is instrumental in facilitating the opportunity for healing on many levels, both emotionally and physically.

A Happy 2023 New Year to You
I wish you a Happy New Year and hope as this year unfolds we can begin to feel more positive about the year ahead. I feel the information below is as relevant today as when shared with you at the start of last year's greetings to all who visit my website .As this year unfolds with all of the continued challenges we are all being presented with the information below is as relevent today as ever. Back in the Winter Solstice of 21st Dec 2020 which signified and marked for many, the beginning of the Age of Aquarius with the Great Conjunction occurring of two huge gas planets. Saturn and Jupiter aligning in the heavens which were bright and visible in the sky.
For your interest, I've listed some of the characteristic energies of these amazing planets :
Saturn ,Old one, keeper of the boundaries,
Marking the cycles of our lives, unfolding,
Like a wise parent, like a stern teacher,
Help us to walk the path of wisdom.
Jupiter, Bountiful lord and bringer of justice,
Sage leader of the ancient gods,
Teach us to give from our hearts' fullness,
Turn our minds towards the higher learning
"Reference from Astrological Aroma by Patricia Davis "
Aquarius although an air sign its name means 'Water Bearer ' can be likened to airy clouds carrying rain.
Last year tested many of us to go within and ponder on the essence of life on this beautiful planet, our purpose, place in the bigger picture of being here and now.
As if a new awakening of humanity , a new awareness of being and reconnecting with our true selves . A time to step forward now and embrace this new era of Aquarius and go with the flow of events and circumstances. Resilience resourceful, innovate, creativity ,new ideas, new technologies, anything unusual or unorthodox and often ahead of their times ,all associated with the essence of Aquarius.
As lock down government protocol is still in place in some health environments and I myself am going with the flow of events and still feel at present, unable to continue with my group sound healing therapy sessions at the Sound Medicine Lodge . My 1-2-1 therapy sessions are now available with a measure of protocal in place. Although some clients old and now new ,have chosen to have 1-2-1 healing sessions via phone which have been successful in their delivery. if this is of interest to you , please contact me via email or phone for more information and/or to book an appointment. Stay safe well and keep on being positive about our future ahead.
A new era of my working practice beckons me to new ventures of providing my various specialized sound healing therapies/teachings to a wider clientele . Updates to follow as time unfolds.
Harmonious wishes in resonance,
Sound Healing 1-2-1 sessions

Sound healing with Sounding Bowls Workshop
at this years 2023 annual Conference with The College of Sound Healing
In November 2019 I was able to attend the annual conference with the College of Sound Healing held at Great Malvern and been invited to hold a workshop as part of the weekend long programme of events.
My workshop allowed me to introduce my new developed Sounding Bowls Stress- Release Technique. Having spent many years and particular the last two years of working through many case studies with the various sounding bowls with clients happy to have the choice to play and discover their healing qualities.This therapy is team work which involves the client , their choice of sounding bowl and myself working together through this healing programme With such positive healing benefits reported and noted. I am now able to offer this form of stress therapy as part of the services available as 1-2-1 healing sessions at my practice studio.Informational leaflets available on request.
Here are a few of the conference workshop photos of myself taken over the weekend.
One of my bridging sounding bowsl has the configuration of a tree clearly visible within the heart of this amazingly tonal sounding bowl. Resulting in my being inspired to create and formulate a programme of therapy .This therapeutic sound healing technique is now in continued development with ongoing research for evaluating sounding bowls effects to help alleviate many health conditions , both physically and emotionally. In fact the NHS to quote Tobias Kaye ,founder and maker of sounding bowls writes,
“ Since 1991 the British National Health Service has been the major user.”
Following on from the successful sessions and growth in popularity as a practice for health and well being of the Therapeutic Group Sound/Gong Healing Meditation sessions offered to the general public held at The Sound Medicine Lodge. I am now happy to announce the new schedule of dates and times for this coming year. An auspicious time to begin my continued work and passion for introducing people to the wonderful healing abilities of sound resonance for well being. Whether this be through the voice ,which I specialize in and through the amazing sounding bowls, gongs, singing bowls , drums and other musical instruments for healing. I look forward to both offering and sharing sacred sound resonance with you and hope you are inspired to come along to these group sound healing meditation sessions and experience for yourself the benefits of sound for healing , of Mind ,Body and Spirit at The Sound Medicine Lodge.
