Jim’s healing work started intuitively with animals and then developed for people. He initially undertook Reiki healing, developing this to Reiki Master level and volunteering at a local Cancer Healing venue. He has trained with the Healing Trust and volunteers at a drop-in healing center in Exeter and also undertakes healings for the Devon-based Barn Owl Trust.
Jim, started 'formal' Shamanic training in the 1980's and continues today with Chris Luttichau from Northern Drum UK Shamanic Centre and is a member of the Medicine Lodge. He believes it is essential to continue his own professional self-development to be able to offer clear healing energy to the client.
Jim follows the Shamanic Healers Circle, the professional association for Shamanic Healers in the UK, code of conduct and ethics, holds professional insurance for therapists and is registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) for data protection. He is a Shamanic Healers Circle Advanced Practitioner and tutor.
