Sophia Rose Swan

I am a fully qualified, experienced professional counsellor, holistic therapist and Reiki Master, offering a mobile therapy service in the Greater Manchester/Lancashire area to both private and corporate clients.

The therapies which I offer include person-centred/eclectic counselling  (youth and adult service); Reiki healing therapy, crystal & sound healing, clinical aromatherapy, Swedish body massage, hot/cold stone massage, reflexology and Indian head massage.

I also facilitate Reiki training and attunement workshops, teaching Levels I, II & Masters level Reiki diplomas at a local venue. Whilst undertaking a formal teaching qualification, I also deliver anatomy & physiology lessons to level 3 Complementary Therapy students at a local college. 



I have a passionate interest in alternative forms of healing and have used the therapies which I practise personally in my own journey to optimum levels of health & well-being. My wish is to share this with others, offering clients empowerment in times of ill-health. 

After completing 20 years NHS service in a scientific role allied to orthodox medicine, I decided to branch out and pursue my growing passion for holistic models of healing.  The scientific foundation I had provides a good platform of knowledge and experience on which I base my complementary therapies practice upon.

My aim is to ultimately take back the value of holistic models of health into the health service to actively promote the benefits in complementing orthodox medicine with holistic therapies.

"Since I have been having my treatments I have been feeling so much healthier and have more energy, but the best result is that my feet have got 90 per cent better than they have been for three years.
