I have been working as a Holistic Complementary Therapist for over 10 years, (since 2000) firstly practicing Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Reiki healing, then expending to include Flower Essence Therapy and Animal Communication. In June 2005 I graduated from a rigorous (and thoroughly enjoyable) four year course at the Barbara Brennan School in Florida, a specialised institute of energy healing and personal transformation, run by renowned healer and physicist Barbara Brennan.
In 2010 I qualified in level 1 & 2 EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), after practicing the technique on myself for several years. I now integrate this work into my client sessions as well as offering stand alone EFT sessions.
I’m passionate about helping my clients to take an active role in their health and wellbeing (please visit the resources section for great self help tools) and I offers tailored packages, drawing on my wealth of skills, to help my clients to live life to the full and find true health and happiness.
On a more personal note, I love this work. I really am passionate about helping myself and others to get the best out of life. I use my tools regularly on myself – I guinea pig all the tools that I use with clients extensively on myself first. I have been using Law of Attraction principles in my own life for over 7 years now and am very inspired by the work of Abraham Hicks (see resources section). I am delighted to be a part of the growing field of energy medicine and to keep learning and growing.
As well as doing this work that I love, I can be found playing Medieval, Celtic and Traditional music with my group, Nuada. I love the creativity and beauty of music and song and the fun of performance (If you want to hear us go here, here and here).
I also have a passion for gardening, especially co-creative gardening, and permaculture. There is almost nothing as rewarding as growing my own food – from seed to plate. The magic and mystery of it awes me every year.
I understand that it may not always seem easy to follow your dreams. I know that in life there can be ups and downs, set backs and ‘challenges’ .. and that they feel very real. I have just finished, with my partner, self building our new home in County Leitrim, Ireland. It wasn’t always easy and there were set backs a plenty. Yet, even when it seemed more of a nightmare that a dream there were always ways to get back to the vision, the joy and essence of the project and clear the doubts or worries.
I say this in case any of you think I’m living in 100% happy land with no concerns or troubling situations. I’m not. Living life to the full isn’t about everything going right all the time, its more about being able to deal with whatever comes up in life and remembering what we really want for ourselves and who we truly are.

I have a blog page on this site, where I discuss and introduce concepts and themes that I feel relate to personal development and self empowerment.
I also have a more personal blog at http://ferrisjay.wordpress.com that you can visit where I go into more depth on these themes e.g where I share progress on processes such as my ’30 days of Appreciation’.
