A Q&A with Teresa Heath

  1. Tell us a bit of background about yourself… (Why and how did you get into the industry? What did you do before?)

I spent three years in Australia and Southeast Asia, teaching English. I was very young when I returned (working in the corporate world which was very stressful) and was not healthy. I got ME which completely debilitated me, but led me to the holistic world, firstly Reflexology which I learned (and then started applying lots of different self-care principles including affirmations).  I was then encouraged by others to get my teacher training qualification and started teaching holistic therapies.

2. Are there any challenges you have had to overcome as a therapist? How have you overcome these?

The Academy that I rented was shutting down, so I had to find alternative premises. I had students, which I taught from there, and it was while we were going through the transition of lockdowns that I also started teaching online and virtually, (changing many CPD courses to facilitate that) with videos for the students and regular zoom sessions to ensure they fully understood the teaching.  All the ITEC courses were taught from the new premises and via zoom. Some of the qualifications and the syllabus had changed slightly as well, like putting COVID restrictions in place.  I faced huge challenges and massive changes, but there was never any thought to stop as l had 26 students that were relying on me – who have now done their ITEC exams – which shows you really can achieve anything when you put your mind to it.

3. What interests you outside of work? (How do you normally spend your spare time?)

I enjoy playing tennis. I like dancing with my husband. We will jive or salsa as part of our daily activity!  I also go cycling and/or walking. However, we have just brought a Puppy Vizla, so those hobbies have changed a little.

4. What is your seminar about and what can viewers expect to come away with?

A holistic journey that helps you find healing through the different Chakras.

It’s really difficult trying to feel fulfilment at home and in the outside world.

Its now time to reclaim our power and get back in touch with each Chakra and identify what needs to be shifted, so that you can achieve more contentment in your world.

5. What is it about your topic that appeals to you and why is it useful for therapists?

I want to bring people back to healing their bodies through simple techniques of using chakras, so they’re no longer relying on fear to paralyse them.  It’s about getting back in touch with your chakras and realizing you can move out of your comfort zone confidently.

We will look at three simple steps:

  • How you can heal your chakras and your intuition, no matter what is going on around you and what challenges you face.
  • How you can continue to grow.  It is important never to take life for granted. Trust your chakras to talk to you. You can take  the next step and you can  keep moving forward.
  • Many people have been caring for others, therefore it is important to master ourselves, our relationships and take them to another level. To realize we can go deeper and have fun in the process!

6. What would be your one piece of advice for therapists wanting to grow and develop their therapy practice?

Be Heart Centred in all you do – listen to your Chakras as they will guide you.

7. What do you consider to be the most important traits for a therapist to have?

I see many therapists that have been in a state of fear and stopped looking at what they’re capable of.  Some feel they have limitations.  I want them to open up their hearts and learn to listen and trust their chakras. Also, they will go away with a set of principles to move them out of their comfort zone with love. I believe they are capable of making changes and going in new directions and I shall show them techniques in how they can do that.
