Foundation Course Trainers

The College of Healing Trainers are responsible for teaching the Foundation Course which provides an introduction to Self Care and Self Healing and also to Spiritual and Energy Healing. Each trainer has a minimum five years’ experience in Spiritual and Energy Healing and brings a wealth of knowledge and a deep commitment to maintaining and enhancing our ethos and values.

Sarah Cowell   

They say everyone comes to the College when they are ready… that is true of me. There was a 10 year gap between taking the Foundation course and finishing the Practitioner course. Since then I have continued studying towards my Diploma and I also run my own healing practice, working one to one with people.  I regularly run the Foundation courses, and enjoy seeing people develop and grow.  I have been part of the COH Advanced Healing and Negative Energy group since early 2018. I am a passionate member of the College, I believe we can all learn about healing regardless  of the challenges life gives.  Each small change we make helps not only ourselves but our community and our planet.

LIzzy Gunning MCoHMA/Counsellor/Healer

Lizzy has been a facilitator for the Foundation Course since 2012. She runs the courses at her home in Bridgnorth within her log cabin and the grounds of her home. She accommodates groups from 2 to 10 people focussing on self help, self  healing in the first instance and then moving into the energy of healing self, family and friends.

So why does she love to teach this course, you may ask? Well, she feels that the phrase “win win” comes to mind! Seeing and experiencing the energy flowing and seeing how people grow with this energy gives her the satisfaction that she is giving to the human race a certain quality that aids not only each individual that comes on the course, but also adds to the welfare of human kind.

If you wish to know more, she looks forward to hearing from you, and to meeting and greeting you in her log cabin in the heart of the Shropshire hills.

Steven Lawrence

Following a 30 year career as an equity trader in the City of London, Steven retrained to become a Healer, Raynor Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer. When asked why, he replied;

“I have always had a keen interest in fitness, it’s how I survived the stress of my previous career but my retraining has helped me to link the health of mind, body and soul and that is what I help clients do. Training at the College of Healing changed my life and I am passionate about the work they do. I am a trustee and member of the management committee. In running the Foundation Course I hope to help others to begin to connect the dots to their own mind, body and soul health to lay the foundations so they start on the path to become their best version of themselves.”
