I first visited Yvonne for healing four years ago – my husband had just died of cancer, three weeks after our wedding day and to say I was lost would be an understatement.
My dad, who is now in remission from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, had been treated by Yvonne all through chemo and an agonising stem cell transplant. When no manmade painkiller could ease his side effects, he’d come away from Yvonne floating. She did the same for me, aside from colour acupuncture – which rejuvenated me when I was catatonic with grief, Yvonne is simply wonderful to talk to. She has ‘it’ – a quality I cannot name – which makes me feel relaxed and safe as soon as I’m in her home.
She’s helped me to grow with my grief: to accept what I lost and still celebrate what I had. I’ve since married again and emigrated to Australia with my new husband, but will still continue to work with Yvonne long-distance. I’ll never be able to thank her enough for helping me – and my father – to heal.
We are not meant to walk in Fear, but to feel empowered, this is everyone's birth rite.
– Yvonne Ferrell
