Crystals are placed on or around you while you relax on a couch. On average I may use 7 - 10 crystal placements – either one at a time, or a ‘set’ of several crystals these are known as grids or layouts. In a typical session between 10 and 25 crystals are used. These are energetically cleaned after each use.
The specific crystals used are chosen according to the needs you describe during your first consultation and subsequent updates (these could be problems, symptoms, or life goals for example), and by how your energy field (aura) feels to me / is sensed by me.
When receiving a crystal healing you lay on a padded couch, fully clothed, most people close their eyes and relax, while others might like to talk a little.
Your appointment is a full hour (an hour and a half for your first appointment) and treatment time is about 40 – 45 minutes.
Distant healing is also available, so even if you’re a long way from me in North West Leicestershire I can still offer healing – please contact me if you’d like to discuss how this would work for you.

I can also offer advice about which crystal to carry with you, to meditate with, or placement of crystals in your home or work-place. I have some ready to use ‘kits’ available – for example for ‘grounding’ sets (supporting feeling ‘with it’), and ‘sleep grid’, as well as bespoke ones like for attracting love, feeling calm, or energy protection as well as single crystals.
Crystal essences which come in a dropper bottle (similar to Bach Flower Remedies) can also be made for you to have ‘doses’ of crystal energy each day whenever you choose.
Crystals can be carried with you in a pocket, as a pendant, or even taped with microporous tape. Lots of women put their chosen crystal in their bra – I actually don’t recommend placing your crystal in your bra because its likely to get lost – they fall out easily and so many people have told me they’ve completely lost a crystal because of carrying it that way. Though, if you lose a crystal, it usually means its no longer needed at this time, I’d rather know where my crystals are... Sometimes they turn up weirdly after years of being missing, perhaps at a time that you need it again.
You can use crystals to meditate with, or help concentration, to ease stress, for guidance, and support as you go through Life.
Crystals are considered an energy healing tool, affecting the energy of people and other living things around them, and the energy flow of spaces in or around your home, meditation place, or workplace (crystals are used in Feng Shui to help direct energy to or from an area) or an outside area.
If you feel drawn to crystals, are curious about having a treatment, are sensitive to energy, or very intuitive its worth exploring crystal energy. You might begin by picking one or two up, see how you feel. An introductory workshop will help you learn how to work with crystals and sense their energy, choose and work with them, or try a crystal healing session for yourself.
Crystal healing isn’t a substitute for getting symptoms checked out and treated medically, but part of supporting well-being generally and may be used to complement other types of healing including medicine or other healthcare.
My first experience of crystal energy was at a short workshop at a Leicester college which I went to as a filler, part of a holistic day I’d gone to for the food session. We each held a certain crystal and were all chatting interestedly about it, then we handed them in and all held a different crystal. This time we all sat pretty much silently. The workshop leader asked us to say how we were feeling. The first crystal had us feeling uplifted and outgoing, the second crystal introspective, quiet and ‘deep’. The mood changed literally in a minute. I was astounded but there was no denying how everyone had responded, with no preconceived ideas at all or influence from the workshop leader, but to simply holding a crystal.
[We all livened up again as we tried other crystals.]
So if you’re interested about crystals I would say try holding a crystal, talk to a friend who has some crystals, or to a qualified crystal healer practitioner to get a feel for whether it’s right for you.
If someone is very sceptical though I’m not here to try and persuade that crystals ‘work’; being closed off to anything will change the experience of it. Here’s an example; I think a particular shopping centre is fab, with great fashion and homeware, a food mall and coffee shops, and I usually am able to buy something wonderful and enjoy the day. However, my friend has never been, doesn’t really enjoy retail therapy and perhaps has heard the place is no good, she might be persuaded to go but will be expecting disappointment and a dull day.
She would be closed off to finding what she needs, won’t spot a bargain and less likely to enjoy it.
On the other hand if she goes with someone who can take her to the best coffee shop, pick out clothes for her, help her find the perfect gift then she may be pleasantly surprised that retail therapy is good.
Most people feel very relaxed, calm and energised, or ‘me on a good day’, others will also notice how the body feels as it re-adjusts to changes in its energy centres, pathways and fields. These may continue after the session for a few days and it can be helpful to make notes of any changes you notice to discuss at your next session.
It’s always beneficial if you can rest after a treatment but you should be fine to drive, go shopping, meet friends, or go to work after crystal healing.
I'm an Affiliation of Crystal Healing Organisations Registered Practitioner which means ACHO has verified my level of training (a 2 year course), the standard of the school I trained with and that my professional development is ongoing (CPD).
The human energy field is affected by internal influences (like emotions, thoughts, chemistry, hormones…) and external effects (like electrical fields, pollution, environment, other people…). When this goes on for long periods we may feel unwell. Physical, mental, and emotional distress and dis-ease may start within the energy system even before its manifestation as recognised symptoms.
Our energy field fluctuates all the time - I like to think of this as being like when a squid changes colour when its distressed, mesmerising a crab, having a nice day or whatever – but for us humans our energy field is invisible to most people but nevertheless changes when we are distressed, delighted, or attempting to engage with someone.
When our energy is disrupted for a longer period of time chronic stress symptoms, feeling low, or physical ill-health can follow.
The energy of crystals, unlike the human energy field, is stable, coherent, and reliable. (Science and engineering use this by putting an electrical charge across a crystal – for example in a quartz watch or liquid crystal display (LCD).) As a Crystal Healer I utilise the same steady energy by placing one at a time or combination of crystals on or around you during your healing session.
Our aura energy field, chakras and energy flows respond to crystals so the aim is to rebalance the energy systems initially, and because the mind, emotions, energy-systems, and physical body are all interrelated then health and wellbeing will follow.

My name is Cheryl and I live in Coalville, Leicestershire, in the East Midlands. I've always been interested and drawn to stones and crystals. I realised crystals can influence mood and energy in the 1990s and trained and qualified as a professional crystal healer in 2004 and 2005, passing exams and criteria set by the ICGT - the Institute of Crystal and Gem Therapists.
I love working with crystals and am constantly learning more, experiencing and working with crystal energy.
