Janis spent her formative years growing up in Australia before returning to the U.K. in her late teens. They say “travel broadens the mind” and so, before committing to serious academic study in her 20’s, she took the opportunity to travel and explore many countries across Europe and parts of the USA. This gave her valuable insight, not only into the differences in language and culture that separate us, but also compassion for the common human condition which bonds us all together.
After studying for both her BSc and MSc in Psychology, Janis undertook four years further academic and clinical training to obtain her qualifications as a Clinical Psychologist from the British Psychological Society. (Dip.Clin.Psych). Following this, she also undertook a year-long Post-Qualification Course in Clinical Neuropsychology at the Institute of Psychiatry in London. Her range of experience encompasses many years as a senior clinician in a London teaching hospital, during which time her work involved the assessment of difficulties and provision of therapy for patients in her specialist areas of Adult Mental Health and Neuropsychology.
In 2002 Janis was offered the opportunity to move to Cornwall to take up a Consultant Clinical Psychologist post until leaving the NHS in 2009. Janis now works as an independent Clinical Psychologist. She has always had an interest in holistic approaches to both physical and psychological problems and thus become a member of the Holistic Faculty of the BPS Division of Clinical Psychology. Her main area of interest is the mind-body link with regard to mental and physical well-being. Janis is a Health and Care Professions Council Registered Clinical Psychologist as well as being a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.
Ian has spent most of his working life within the engineering industry, travelling extensively throughout the UK and the World. This gave him the experience of talking to and dealing with all sorts of people. However, he knew that this career was not what he was meant to do. At that time he lived in London but when his wife, Janis, was offered a job in Cornwall they both knew that a new phase of their life together was opening up and they moved to Cornwall in 2002.
In 2001 his best friend died suddenly and this motivated him to find out whether life continued after death. He therefore arranged to see the celebrated Psychic Medium Tony Stockwell. During this sitting Tony could see his healing potential and encouraged him to become a healer. Following his return to Cornwall he embarked on a healing course with the School of Chakra Therapies in 2006 and graduated in 2007.
Ian has a thirst for knowledge and knew that he should investigate additional ways he could help people with his healing abilities. He therefore further developed by investigating Trance Healing at The Arthur Findlay College in Stansted, Medical Intuition at The College of Psychic Studies in Kensington, London and SKHM (pronounced Sekeem - a form of healing practised by the Ancient Egyptians) at The School of Chakra Therapies.
Ian continues to develop these exciting forms of healing so that he can offer a complete healing experience and is registered with the British Association of Healing Alliances and is part of the Duchy Healers Association.
