  • Teacher: Vicki Marston
    Region: UK

    Vicki is a lifelong advocate for mental health and personal responsibility.  Strongly influenced by Dr Deepak Chopra in the 1980s whilst working as an Occupational Therapist in Psychiatric Services, she realised that health is our natural state and that illness arises when we are out of balance. A long journey later, Vicki has an independent wellness-focussed practice offering a range of healing modalities including talking therapies, nutrition, bodywork, breath-work, meditation, flower essences and energy healing. Vicki trained with Marion Leigh in Flower Essence Therapy and Esoteric Healing from 2010 – 2013.

    “I have a passion for Findhorn, yoga and flower essences. They do not change the way we see things, rather they transform the person who sees.”
