Penny Simmonds Principal of the Suffolk School of Healing.
Suffolk School of Healing was established to enable individuals to enhance their spiritual journey. I am keen to share my experience and knowledge to support others interested in spiritual development and Healing.
I am a Reflexology and Healer practitioner and have been running my own Reflexology and Healing practice in excess of 20 years.
I am passionate about the positive impact healing and energy work has to offer to enhance our lives. I am interested in supporting people with their spiritual development as this, I believe, is a key component to supporting their general well-being. For those interested in healing, this journey starts with our relationship with ourselves. Very often, there is the assumption that learning to heal is something that only a select few can master. I wish to dispel this myth and open this exciting opportunity to anyone who has an interest in developing this aspect of their spirituality!
My journey has been both extensive and interesting. My awareness of healing and energy work was a gradual process, although from childhood I always felt that there was more to life. I originally started my career in nursing and am a General Nurse, Midwife and Health Visitor by background. I became interested in Reflexology and then a natural progression to healing followed. I qualified as a Reflexologist with the Association of Reflexologists in 1992 and have been a Healer since 1994, having completed The Healing Trust Foundation Course.
My role within the health service came to a conclusion as I was struggling to balance work commitments with the care needs of my disabled daughter. To provide a more flexible option, I pursued a career in the charity sector for the next 25 years. This was mainly developing services to support the needs of individuals and carers affected by a range of medical conditions and disabilities, including dementia and learning disabilities.
I am now focused solely on running my own business; providing Reflexology and Healing for clients and delivering a range of healing courses, and reflexology workshops. I look forward to sharing the benefits of energy work and healing with you, should you decide to join any of the spiritual development or healing workshops I am providing.
