Foundation Course Tutors

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.

Jo Radley

Jo Radley runs a full-time clinic in Staverton, Northamptonshire. Her own journey with health has been a difficult one, and it is through her quest for her own healing and a desire to help others that she has completed over 6 years full time training and many short courses. This journey has helped her to develop both a solid knowledge base, experience the treatments she offers and develop highly intuitive skills. Many people have said she offers a unique insight into their problems and her work is a true “calling” rather than just a job.

Jo initially trained in Reiki in 1990. Since then, she has gone on to do the two-year Professional Healing Diploma Course through the College of Healing, plus many advanced training days. She has worked in COH Advanced and Negative Energy Healing Groups since 2004. She also trained in Marconics Healing (Level 4) in 2018.

She also holds a BA Hons. Degree in Traditional Acupuncture, and is qualified in Structural Integration, N.L.P. and Low-Level Laser Therapy and has completed many years of advanced study.


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.


Fran Doidge MIFPA MC0HMA BSc Physiology and Biochemistry

Fran graduated with The College of Healing in 1991.

Since then she has integrated her Healing skills into a successful Massage, Aromatherapy and Healing practice for 30 years.

Her focus now is helping people in pain using her Healing and showing people how to help themselves with Healing exercises and Self-care methods.

She runs workshops where she supports people in pain on a low wage.

She also runs Spiritual workshops helping people to work with their subtle senses and access their Higher Self.

Since qualifying Fran has been a member of on-going Healing supervision groups and has worked in the Advanced Healing Negative energies Group since 2004.

Fran holds a BSc in Physiology and Biochemistry. As well as being a member of the College of Healing Membership Association (MCOHMA), she is a member of the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA).

Fran values the training she received from The College of Healing greatly as she knows that she would not have been able to maintain a Massage practice for 30 years without accessing and using the Healing energies; allowing her to maintain good health throughout.

Fran lives in Cradley near Malvern with her partner Mark and she has a daughter and grandson in Coventry and a son in Cheltenham.

Fran loves birding, walking and gardening.

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 we 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.”
