Distant or Absent Healing*
"Energy follows thought"
What is Distant Healing?
Distant or Absent Healing is a way of sending healing energy to a person who, for whatever reason, cannot attend a healing session in person. The healing energy is therefore ‘sent’ to that person, no matter where they are in the world in relation to the healer.
It is an established healing method in both the Spiritual Healing and Reiki traditions and can be as effective as an in-person healing session.
* I am now offering Distant Healing sessions using traditional methods and using Zoom, WhatsApp or telephone. Please contact me if you are interested in this method which gives a voice and/or visual connection as well as the traditional Distant Healing experience.
How does Distant Healing work?
The energy is sent to the client by the healer, who will focus on the client and connect with their energy through the power of intention.
This might seem rather far-fetched. However, just think for a moment how many times we send "love", "good wishes" or "loving thoughts" to people, and how – quite often, people sense that love, good wishes, loving thoughts.
Also, consider the fact that whatever we do or say, we first have the thought of doing or saying. For example, I might fancy a cup of tea. Before I make that tea, I have to have the thought: ‘I’d like a cup of tea’. This process is beautifully summed up in the phrase ‘energy follows thought’. We cannot do anything without firstly thinking about it. No thought – no tea.
Distant Healing is an extension of this thinking practice, using the Universal Energy Field which connects us all.

What do I have to do to receive Distant Healing?
First of all, we need to comply with the law. This means I need permission to send Distant Healing to you. The type of permission I need will vary depending whether you are an adult or a child. Permission can usually be given by simply sending me an email asking for Distant Healing. Please ask for details of this when enquiring.
If you wish to, you can then tell me a little bit about your situation and the reasons why you are seeking healing. You do not have to tell me anything if you don’t want to, but often, clients ask me to focus on specific issues, so it can be helpful to have some background.
Please note, all information given is confidential – again as far as the law allows. Please ask if you have questions about confidentiality.
You can then decide how you want to receive the Distant Healing. If you are choosing traditional Distant Healing, there are a number of options:
We can arrange a specific time and date for you to receive the healing.
This is perfect for those who wish to know exactly when the Distant Healing is
being sent. You can then sit down, relax and focus on the energy, or you can
just be assured that the healing has been sent at this time.
We can arrange a specific date, but not a time.
I will then send the Distant Healing when I feel it’s the best time to do so.
I can send you a text or email I start, again reassuring you that the
Distant Healing is being sent.
Often clients ask for Distant Healing to be sent ‘in the morning’ or ‘in the
afternoon’ but don’t mind exactly when.
You can ask for Distant Healing to be sent, but don’t mind when.
This is sometimes useful when someone is travelling, or if they have a long-
term illness. They book a number of sessions and ask me to send healing
‘as and when’ I feel it is appropriate. This means they do not have to
remember it’s being sent.
No matter which option you choose, the Distant Healing will be sent as agreed and all options are equally effective.
What do I have to do whilst healing is being sent?
If you are choosing traditional Distant Healing, there is very little for you to do. You can simply relax, meditate or do something that gives you joy.
You can focus on the healing or not, it's up to you.
Once the healing has been sent, you can tune in to it as often as you wish.
If you are choosing to use Zoom, Telephone or WhatsApp as part of your session, we will work face to face or voice to voice for part of the session and you will be able to relax into the healing for the remaining time - as you wish to.
What happens after the Distant Healing has been sent?
I will send you an email with my feedback. This includes what happened in the session, where I worked and my insights and any guidance.
I would encourage you to send me feedback too if you wish to – so we have a full understanding of what happened and how the Distant Healing was experienced.
What happens if I forget that Distant Healing is being sent or I miss the appointment?
Please don’t worry if this happens. The Distant Healing will be there for you and you can focus on it at any time to receive its benefits. Indeed, many clients do this a number of times anyway, whether they have missed the appointment time or not.
What’s the difference between the Distant Healing sent with Spiritual Healing or with Reiki?
In my opinion, both traditions are equally effective. The difference may be felt in how the client perceives the energy and the qualities of that energy. I stress that this does not imply that one tradition is better than the other, just different.
There is however, a difference in how I prepare for Distant Healing depending on whether I am using Spiritual Healing or Reiki.
For the Spiritual Healing tradition, I will use a visualisation to prepare my energy and then focus on the client. I will ask permission from the client’s Higher Self to send Distant Healing. I will then use my intention to send that healing, working on the issues presented.
I received specialist training enabling me to send Distant Healing in the Reiki tradition when I was attuned to Reiki Level Two.
I focus attention upon the person concerned and use a series of symbols and mantras, so the Reiki Energy flows out to my client, via the Universal Energy Field, using the power of intention.
If you are choosing to use Zoom, WhatsApp or telephone, we will arrange a date and time and I shall set up all necessary links and inform you of these.
What Does It Cost?
I offer the following options:
One short Distant Healing session of 15 minutes £15.00
This is perfect for an emergency, or as a trial session. Timing-wise this is best used with the traditional method.
Four short Distant Healing sessions of 15 minutes* £50.00
This is a very popular option, often used to explore an issue over a specific period of time which can arranged to suit your needs, over a period of up to four weeks.
For example, you could choose to have the four sessions over a short space of time. This is helpful when focussing on acute situations, eg accidents, bereavements, shocks etc. Four sessions could be taken very intensively, perhaps even every day or within a week.
On the other hand, you could choose to have one session every week and explore your situation over this longer period of time.
*NB – if you do opt to have the four sessions over an extended period, you will need complete them within the four-week time frame to qualify for this option.
A half-hour Distant Healing session £25.00
Clients often choose this when they want a more in-depth exploration of an issue.
A one-hour Distant Healing session £50.00
Clients will choose this when they want an extended exploration of an issue.
No matter which traditional option you choose, an email with feedback will be sent to you after the session. Depending on the time of your appointment, this might not be sent until the following day.
For Zoom, WhatsApp or telephone appointments, feedback will be given verbally at the time of the session.
