Althea has the ability to connect with all vibrations of a person creating a symphony of the soul. She balances and respects opposites allowing for a stillness to expand through which truth says 'Hello'.

Althea brings joy and vitality to everything she does. Her work one-on-one with her clients is no exception.
I have had two sessions with Althea, and found them to be simultaneously energizing and calming. Althea has a gift for creating a safe space to fully experience emotional and spiritual energy. I found the sessions gave me a new perspective on old issues, and helped me release what was no longer useful to me.
I believe in order to work successfully with Althea one must have an open mind, and allow oneself to “go with the flow.” I am grateful for her work and highly recommend her.

I felt privileged and highly honoured to spend a day with Althea. She is a real master in creating a most inspiring, cosy and extremely safe space. I found it interesting to observe my inner world being expressed in so many different ways other than words and how different blockages and densities dissolved when drawing them, dancing them through the body or putting them into sound and rhythm..I admire Althea's limitless optimism, enthusiasm and unwavering faith that shine through her and around her all the time and eventually also melted everything in me that was not alike. I feel I myself have become much more positive oriented, happy and joyful...Thank you Althea for being in my life.

"On February 21st and 22nd 2009 Althea held a Sacred Play Transformational  (The Creative Art of Being) Workshop in Ellon, Scotland. This was a very new thing for a small town in the northeast of Scotland but she came, she saw and she conquered! Everyone was touched by her love, compassion and beauty and benefited hugely from the spiritual energy, voyage of self discovery and release of old thought patterns. This resulted in many new opportunities opening up for those who attended, with offers of travel and invitations to other workshops appearing within days. Haste ye back Althea."
Lots of love,

Althea is a true teacher and a patient, creative healer.
Her careful interest in us and our potential guides her to confidently and expertly forge a relationship of trust and harmony.
She possesses and unwavering commitment to helping people to open to each other, to love one another, and to find healing and happiness
Her own diverse experiences enable her to guide us to remarkable results.
I have worked with Althea over several years, and through her limitless energy and devotion to me, I have moved through some daunting challenges and questions, gained immeasurable understanding and insight, and am alarmingly even-tempered.
Working with Althea, I have been helped to feel unburdened, unencumbered, unlimited, and infinitely energetic – utterly free.
She has lovingly and patiently taught me that life can be an exhilarating experience. Her own life has been a vivid illustration of that teaching. It is a lesson that I could not have learned without the skills and the trust that Althea has lovingly and diligently instilled in me.
I am learning to inhabit my life wholly and with confidence. Fear and insecurity – physical and emotional – have begun to melt away. I am surprised by what I can do and am excited to test myself in new ways. And I have Althea to thank for guiding me here.

I found Althea's creativity workshop a real blessing. After many years I was finally able to express my creativity again. I used to draw a lot before I had fallen into crisis with my ex-partner. After that time my creativity stopped. Althea helped me to express my feelings again and to override the boundaries inside me. I learned a lot of things about myself and about my creativity at this workshop. I realized that I have so many judgments inside me, that were preventing me from expressing my higher energies and possibilities. The most important thing I learned from Althea is that by expressing what is bothering you, you and the whole group can work on those things together and everyone benefits. Althea is such a blessed person, you can learn so many things from her, constantly, and over and over again.
She is blessed to feel what others are feeling and guide them in a loving way. When I came back home from this creativity workshop, my 2 year son was dancing with me, because I think he felt a new energy in me. He was very excited about the paintings I brought back home, because I think he saw something only a two year child can see, a lot of energy and positive vibrations which jumped out of me and onto the paper with the help of Althea.

Althea came to visit one of our clients, and after speaking with her about an assortment of things including her work, I asked her if she would be willing to hold a workshop that very day with the clients at our nursing home, most of whom are substance abusers or suffer from chronic depression . Without hesitation, she agreed to work with them.
She had the patients, assemble into a circle and began the counseling programme, or as she would term it, the mini-workshop. Althea listened to their various experiences and circumstances that led them to their present situations, she asked gentle yet insightful questions and shared relevant stories from her own experience. She encouraged and motivated them, provided them with emotional support and most importantly prayed with them.
The work was very well received by the patients and was indeed beneficial, as it is always good when others can look beyond what they are are and their struggle to overcome their addiction and recognize their greater need for change. After the session, most were more dedicated to bring about the change needed in their lives and were more optimistic about their future.
I was so pleased with the results, that I asked Althea to return which she kindly agreed to do on short notice. The patients were so pleased to see her again and were excited to reassemble and begin the work. They enjoyed the sessions so much that they asked her when she was returning to Jamaica and if she would continue to work with them on a regular basis.
Althea was able to quickly establish a level of trust and safety with the men, whereby, they felt that she understood them, would not judge them, and would provide appropriate and useful guidance.
My staff and I , are extremely grateful for the vitality and enthusiasm that she brought to our home and most importantly, the inspiration that she provided for the patients. And we trust that Althea will be greatly rewarded for donating her time, her experience, and her expertise to our organization.
We hope that she will come back very soon and wish her well on her work and travels.
God Bless you Althea.

“She made a believer out of me.” As a first comer to Altheas workshop, I must say that I wasn’t without trepidation, however, I entered my time with an open mind and a willingness to accept whatever may come. Althea’s infectious energy and spirituality was apparent from the first moment we sat across from each other. During the session I experienced many interesting feelings and an opening within that left me happy and tired. Althea has a true gift for helping those who are willing to accept, and even those who don’t, can’t help but be touched by the love and enthusiasm she exudes. Althea has helped me to see life with a more clear perspective and positive attitude. Thank you for sharing and helping me regain a part of me that has been missing, once again the future is bright. See you at the next sitting.
