About Touchstones Therapies
Lauren D'Silva BA (Jt Hons), PGCE, Principal TSCT
I am an experienced healer, teacher and writer offering crystal therapy, healing and spiritual guidance. To support therapy sessions I may also use colour therapy, gem essences and hypnosis. I'm based in Llandrindod Wells, Mid Wales but I work with clients worldwide.
Transformation, personal empowerment and spiritual development are the hallmarks of my healing and teaching style. I want to help you discover your strengths and find your best self.
I am Principal of Touchstones School of Crystal Therapy and I teach in Mid Wales and Glastonbury. I'm a fully qualified teacher with over thirty years of teaching experience. I come from a mainstream teaching background, starting out by teaching English, Drama and Health Education in Secondary Schools, before specialising in Health Education. I went on to lead the Healthy Schools Programme for Leicestershire, providing training and support for teachers.
When I moved to Wales I left mainstream education behind to focus on my work as a Crystal Therapist. I have taught Crystal Therapy to Diploma level for the last twenty years. I cater for all levels of experience and expertise, providing for the complete novice right up to those who have already completed a therapy qualification and are looking for continuing professional development, additional skills and techniques.
I was the Chair of the Affiliation of Crystal Healing Organisations (ACHO) for six years between 2014 and 2020. ACHO is the joint lead body for Crystal Therapy in the UK. ACHO sets training standards for Crystal Therapy in the UK and also maintains a Practitioner Register for Crystal Therapists who hold qualifications from ACHO member schools.
My first book, Light behind the Angels, explored my own past life journey. Past life regression has long been one of my particular interests as this rewarding work has so much transformational potential, however I wasn't expecting such an epic past life story to emerge spontaneously in my own life. The revelations have been far reaching and are still unfolding.
What was unexpected has been the number of people who have contacted me since the publication to say that my story has been healing for them and they have felt less alone with their experiences since reading it.
I am a fully initiated High Priestess and I'm available to officiate at Handfastings. Please enquire if you are planning to tie the knot.
My husband, Steve Deeks-D'Silva, is a trained Crystal Therapist and an experienced Shaman. He is adept at observing subtle energies. Steve specialises in the removal of stuck and unhelpful energies from people and places and can work with you wherever you are in the world.
Steve assists me in the teaching of larger groups.
