Have you ever felt the energy of someone having a bad day? It can feel as though they have a black cloud over their head. Perhaps you've felt someone walk into a room before you see them as they have a strong presence? On the other hand, you might have felt a positive connection with someone you have just met, you feel their enthusiasm and optimist.  This is an example of how our energy fields extend beyond our physical bodies. When you become aware of your energy field, you also become aware of other people's and how it can affect you.

Sometimes we can pick up other energy that doesn't belong to us without even realizing, and it can attach to our energy field. Certain experiences in life can leave us vulnerable, especially if we've experienced any of the following:

  • Physical factors like drugs and alcohol abuse, illness, accidents and injury or trauma.

  • Emotional traumas like intense negative emotions, relationship breakdowns or bereavement.

  • Places like visiting or working in locations such as hospitals, prisons, pubs, cemeteries, witnessing an accident, disaster or war sites. 

  • Psychic events like using spirit invocations, psychic openness, certain types of meditation, excessive dowsing or psychic activities.

  • Other factors can be a presence of attached spirits, psychic openness or karmic connections.

This can be draining and cause unpleasant side effects like unexplained fatigue, unexplained depression, sudden changes in mood or behaviour, addiction of all sorts, uncharacteristic changes in personality or behaviour, anomalous sexual behaviour, various thoughts or emotions that don't belong to us or sleeplessness/night terrors.


It is important to note that the symptoms above are similar, often even the same, like those of some mental health disorders so its vital to visit a doctor if you have even the slightest concern there may be more than energies involved!

There are different types of energy that can come within our energy fields and may need to be released. Below are some terms used in energy work with an explanation for each:


Taking on others thoughts and emotions as if they are our own. Working in an environment where you're dealing with people experiencing negative emotions can be draining if you don't protect yourself or release those emotions at the end of the day. Customer Services jobs, hospitals or any kind of patient care or even working in a pub can leave you open to picking this energy up.


These are spirits of people that haven't moved on from the earth plain, some of them may not even realise they've passed. They can be attached to a person if they regularly experience a familiar emotion or participate in an activity they miss.


The effects of negative energy or thoughts being sent from another person. Often associated with witchcraft or back magic. They are commonplace in certain cultures and religious beliefs.


This involves external energy which has a negative impact on a person's sense of well-being. It can come from people or from environmental factors.


This is where energy has entered the person's body and remains within, whilst very rare it can happen. 

The treatment can take different forms, depending on the nature of the symptoms and energies involved. Most Energy Cleansing is straightforward and can be completed in 1-2 sessions. It's a comfortable process where you sit or lie down and we find out why the energy joined you and how it has been affecting you. We will then release that energy with love and kindness and sent it to a safe place or healing. Far from being scary, most energy releases are actually quite peaceful, full of information, understanding, humour and love. My goal is to take this energy out of the client's system so the therapy can take place. 

I'll also teach you some quick techniques to reinforce your natural protection to prevent further energy attachments in the future. A session lasts for approximately 1 hour and can be completed in person and sometimes remotely.

Healing is the end of the conflict with yourself
