Untie The String Natural Healing Therapies

Home » About Christine

Why would we be a good fit?

You may feel like you have come a long way already, but you could also be at the very start of a whole new journey of self-discovery, spiritual development and healing.  My strength lies in meeting you where you are now to connect with you intuitively, treat you holistically and teach you experientially, in a spirit of cooperation with your body’s own healing ability and your lived experience. I am a holistic therapist offering energy healing, breathwork and spiritual development to help you experience healing from within. In 2011, I founded Untie The String Natural Healing Therapies, which I named after a beloved poem by Robert Graves called Warning to Children. It is a safe space for you to heal and grow; to build and maintain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness; a space to loosen the knots, untie the string, release the blocks and heal from within.

What do you get out of it?

Imagine waves of revitalising energy jump starting your own natural healing process to nourish your mind, body and soul. My Reiki and Crystal Healing Treatments, Conscious Connected Breathwork Healing Journeys and Trance Mediumship Healing Sessions can open doorways to inner wisdom and transformational shifts. My bespoke fusion treatments take things to a new level; a Reiki treatment with crystals or sound healing with singing bowls or drumming added in can be sublime! Perhaps you’d love a guided meditation and some trance healing to relax you deeply before a conscious connected breathwork journey? The possibilities are truly endless. An in-person experience offers supportive touch within the unique energy of my Cambridge treatment room. Online sessions and home treatments can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own space. Whatever you choose, I create a unique and empowering experience just right for you.

What can I offer you?

A partnership of support and empowerment: My vocation is helping people explore and release whatever is holding them back from the health and happiness which lies within. I believe in recognising our strengths and empowering ourselves energetically. Clients come to me for help with all kinds of things; mental and emotional healing for stress, anxiety, depression, grief and low self-esteem and physical healing for pain. In the past, I have supported terminally ill clients and cancer patients going through radiology and chemotherapy, while volunteering at the cancer care centre and for the last 20 years I have had a very personal interest in learning about autistic spectrum disorder, ADHD and dyslexia. More recently, I have been researching the qualities of an empath and the clair senses. As a Reiki Master/Teacher, I am dedicated to daily practice of Reiki principles, meditations and Reiki self-healing with the main focus on spiritual self-development, so the thing I am most passionate about is supporting anyone venturing out on a spiritual development journey who would like to find someone on the same wavelength to support them with mentoring and healing opportunities. Whatever I am doing, I always work from a perspective of celebration of differences and respect for individuality. It’s all about empowering people to find their way forward.

The dedication of a full-time healer and teacher: According to my Reiki Master, I was constantly on a quest to learn and master healing techniques. I still am and I love what I do – it’s all I do! I’ve been transforming lives all over the world through healing and teaching for decades, learning all kinds of healing modalities to untie the many knots and tangles that can build up within us as we experience difficulties in life. I developed my teaching skills working for the British Council as a teacher of English. My first teaching job was in 1992 in Japan, but I never came across Reiki there. That happened in Bangladesh in 2009! Before that life-changing discovery, I had worked in Germany, Senegal, Japan, Vietnam, Egypt, Brunei, Kenya, Poland and China and had married and started a family along the way; my son was born in Warsaw and my daughter in Beijing. I travelled all the way to Hanoi to find a husband from Halifax!  In the beginning, Reiki was just for me and my family, but it became more of a way of life as I developed a daily practice of self-healing and it became the foundation of a full time healing and teaching practice.  That’s because Reiki is a way to develop yourself as well as a healing method. It supports acceptance and letting go, living more in the moment, without the tension that sometimes comes from expectations and demands of loved ones or society.

The vast experience of a life-long learner: By living in different countries for 20 years, I faced a lot of change and didn’t have the support of extended family around me, so I learnt techniques for self-care and wellness, such as t’ai chi, chakra healing, crystal healing, EFT, Satyananda and Iyengar yoga, mindfulness and meditation. My last posting in Bulgaria was a treasure trove for crystals, and I gathered a large collection of stones there to support healing. I also added qualifications in Bowen Therapy, Human Design and Heal Your Lifeworkshop facilitation. I then became a qualified caregiver and supported people in the community. More recently, I began to recognise a calling for mediumship and gained a certificate in Spiritual and Trance Healing Practice and a Diploma in Spiritual and Holistic Energy Healing. My latest adventure has been to qualify as a breathwork facilitator and teacher.

The positivity of a survivor: We came home to the UK in 2014 and I was just setting up my practice in Cambridge when disaster struck. I went through 4 months of tests to finally be diagnosed with colorectal cancer, by which time I was categorized as high risk. Within 2 days, I was on 5 weeks of daily radiotherapy with two weeks of chemo by pic line to the heart. The pain of the radiation ‘burns’ was indescribable. I would have found this far more frightening and challenging if I had not had Reiki and Louise Hay’s philosophy to support me. I went on a journey of self-discovery and self healing by facing my own mortality and I haven’t looked back since achieving complete remission from cancer in 2015. Life is a joy and I will never stop learning about healing!

Community and connection: I enjoy being part of a community of people who believe in being the change they wish to see and I support all who are committed to positive change from within. . I also offer support to students and clients though a Reiki Share and Support Group and a Reiki Distant Healing Group. I set up the spiritually curious society to offer uplifting connections through curious conversations on spiritual development topics, spiritually themed conscious connected breathwork journeys and workshops, as well as other events.
