Welcome to Em'brace Healing

Are you looking for a little magic in your life?  A little fairy dust and sparkle?  Then you've come to the right place!

Hi there.  I'm Karen, and it's my mission in life to help you reconnect to your most magical dreams. If you've lost that spring in your step because life's getting you down, or you've forgotten what it feels like to look forward to even your days off work, I can help.

I call myself a holistic therapist, and I offer my clients help with any aspect of their lives that may feel out of balance.  I use a variety of techniques and therapies to help you work through any changes you want to make. We are all, whether consciously or not, seeking a better way to live.  It is my aim to help you define and pursue that goal. Working from my home in Tunbridge Wells, I look forward to applying my years of experience, well-developed intuition and wide-ranging knowledge of people and therapies to help you find happiness again in your day-to-day life. Do you ever wonder how your life got to where it is today, or what happened to your dreams? I can help you find the pivotal points in your past that need healing so you can move forward with the life you really want, or just the head space to discover what you want and how to achieve it.

"Whatever's obscuring your sparkle, I am here to help. With a wide range of therapies (and maybe a magic wand!), I'm here to sprinkle a little fairy dust into your life!"

Some of the things I can help you with are:

  • Rediscovering and rebuilding your dreams
  • Building 'a life worth living'
  • Spiritual and self development issues
  • Healing fears, phobias, anxieties
  • Weight control
  • Pain management
  • Stress management and relaxation
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorders
  • Reactive Depression (ie depression caused by a known life event/s)
  • Self-esteem and confidence issues, including performance anxiety, eg exam nerves, public speaking
  • Stop smoking
  • Grief and loss
  • Some fertility issues
  • Setting and achieving goals and aims


Sometimes, all you need is to let off steam to someone who won't judge, criticise, or tell you what to do. Sometimes, you may simply need someone to ask you the right questions, or to bounce ideas off, or help you follow your chosen path. Or you may be struggling to know what you want in life and how to find it. We also all know how hard it can be to find the time to be ourselves, or even to discover who we really are, let alone what we want in life or how to achieve it. And we know how hard it can be to reach out to another person and ask for help, because many of us are conditioned from an early age to be independent and 'stand on our own two feet'.

But when you've had friends who needed your help, you were there for them, weren't you? It feels good to help someone you care about to improve their life but can you ask for help in your own life? I have no agenda except to help you; no vested interest in steering you down a particular path; the empathy and compassion to listen non-judgementally; and the skills and knowledge to help you find your way.

Like me, you have your own unique and specific challenges, values, hopes and dreams, and your own ways of dealing with whatever life throws at us. If you're one of the lucky ones who knows what you want, I can help you. If you're not, I can help you find your dream. Whatever is holding you back from living the life you want, together we can make a difference. And when your life changes for the better, so do the lives of those you love.

My philosophy is that while there is a therapy to suit everyone, no single therapy can cover all possible needs. I also have a strong belief in treating all areas of a person's mind, body and spirit in a holistic way.  So, in order to be able to treat all my clients in the best possible ways for them, I have achieved a wide range of qualifications in a variety of complementary therapies. Most of my therapies can be delivered and/or discussed in person or via the telephone or internet, while some can be delivered by distant healing, ie Reiki and Spiritual Healing. Most can be combined with other therapies in a holistic treatment session or a series of sessions, and many complement each other very well. For instance, crystals can enhance a Reiki session, when gridded around the therapy couch or held or placed on the body; flower remedies can help to reinforce the positive intentions formed in a coaching session; and a short Spiritual Healing session at the end of a stress management session can help to send you on your way feeling thoroughly relaxed and refreshed.

Distant healing can be sent to you or to someone else, but it is best to ask the other person’s permission before healing is sent, for it to have the greatest effect.

I have a large library covering spiritual and complementary therapy subjects, which you can borrow and read, and I also have a number of tarot and oracle decks, which can help with intuitive readings. If you have a particular question to ask, I may not be able to provide the answer, as that could be something only you can find, but I can help to point you in the right direction.

Please also take a look at my Products page for details of a flower remedy I have developed myself, and I also design and make Reiki-attuned crystal jewellery to help you connect to the healing energies of Reiki, even if you are unable to attend for a session.
