Helping Handbags

The Centre has been busy this week, with my old clients coming in to see me and a couple of new faces too. I’ve also had visits from people wishing to hire rooms at the Centre, and I’ll keep you posted as to what happens there.

Next week the opening times at the Centre are as follows:
Tuesday 17th 10 – 4
Wednesday 18th 10 – 4
Thursday 19th 12 – 8
Friday 20th 10 – 4
Saturday 21st The Centre is open but not for therapies. The workshop “Awakening the Violet Flame Chakra” is running and I am on it, and no other therapists are working on this day. If you’d like to attend, please book using this link:

This Wednesday we have Irena Bee visiting us, and her amazing Tarot Readings are just £20. She is the only Tarot reader I trust to give me accurate and insightful readings, and her background as a life coach also helps her ask the right questions. Contact the Centre to book.

Do you have to have Those Conversations? You know the sort – they keep us awake at night and stop us concentrating on other things? Well Thursday’s workshop is on Holding Difficult Conversations and you can book it using this link:

Please note there is a deadline of 6pm Monday evening to book for this course as materials have to be produced.

On Thursday, James and Helen Charles are with us. They are both trained nurses, and Helen in particular is just completing training in different therapies and is looking for case studies. More details of that are on their page, if you’d like to help her out and take advantage of a cut-price therapy.

Otherwise, therapies always available with me are Reiki, crystal healing, chakra balancing, angel card readings, and aromatherapy treatments. In addition to the NYR Organic mini-facials, I have the Festive Fabulous Frankincense Facial to offer you! For only £40 you can enjoy the luxurious Frankincense range from NYR Organic in an hour long treatment. And a bonus for you subscribers – not available to anyone else – the first two to book one of these can have a FREE Age-defying Frankincense mini-kit as a thank you from me. You can book online as usual or call the Centre.

Forthcoming Events

Saturday 28 November, 10 – 1 Stress Bustin’ with Daniel Browne. The investment for this workshop is just £10, which includes the workshop itself, a stress busting handout full of helpful resources to keep your life stress free, and a stress busting hypnosis CD to keep you on track. Refreshments will also be provided. Please book using this link:

Wednesday 2 December, 7 – 9pm An Evening with Jon Sabin. This is the first in our “An Evening With” series, in which leading figures in the spiritual world tell us how they started working with Spirit, answer questions and give information. Tickets are £10, available from the Amethyst Centre only. You can pay by Paypal if you wish and the tickets will come in the post, just email me for details. Places are strictly limited.

Thursday 3 December, 6 – 8 pm our Ascension group meets, cost £15. Lorraine wrote us a blog post on what happens in this group. I attended it myself last week and thoroughly enjoyed it, can completely recommend it to you. Payment on the night please.

Friday 4 December – Sunday 6 December Angelic Reiki with Lorraine Dolan. Now Lorraine and I had a chat about this course last week, as it is an important one to run, and we agreed to reduce the price to £299! You can also now pay by instalments: there is a ticket option for a downpayment of £150, with the £149 payable at the weekend. You can book for the course using the Eventbrite link.

Saturday 12 December 10 – 1 Introduction to Mindfulness with Daniel Browne. This workshop will provide an introduction to mindfulness. You will discover what mindfulness is and explore how it can help you in every day life with issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, negative thought patterns and troublesome emotions. The second half of the workshop will introduce you to the practice of mindfulness, with guided mindfulness techniques to help you relieve tension, relax, boost focus and experience calm. There will also be time for questions and discussions throughout the workshop.

As a thank you for attending the workshop, you will be gifted with an introduction to mindfulness guide and a mindfulness CD to aid your continued practice at home. (Not bad for only £10 eh!)

No previous experience of mindfulness is required and all are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be available, including a selection of teas, coffees and cold drinks.

Other News

I am humbled that the Centre has been accepted as a collection point for Helping Handbags. If you have any spare handbags you don’t use (and God only knows I have loads…), please fill them with the contents listed in the photo and bring them to the Centre. You could also bring a donation of the contents if you don’t have any handbags yourself! The deadline is December 13th. Thank you for your help with this.

I am considering the Christmas opening at the moment. I have two things in mind:

• Firstly, the week before Christmas I intend to open Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday and not open on Christmas Eve.

• Secondly, the week after Christmas I want to open on an appointment basis, because I think people can benefit from the calm and peace of the Centre.

If you have any questions or ideas about Christmas opening, please get in touch.

I’ve already sold plenty of gift vouchers. As a special offer for people reading this blog, if you buy two full-price vouchers at £40 each, I will give you one for a half-session at £25! You can treat yourself or give it to a friend, I don’t mind – as long as you use it by the end of March next year.

If you see The Amethyst Centre’s advertisements in the local press, please can you contact the Centre and let me know as I’m tracking whether it is at all useful to pursue paid for advertising in this way.

For the first half of next year, we have lots of very different courses, from Buteyko breathing to The Balance Procedure and Expansion through Colour. You will be able to book places on these from December onwards.

Of course you don’t always have to book in advance for a treatment – just call the Centre on 024 7644 0186 and see if I can fit you in.
