Rebecca (Becky) believes in trusting to the Universe in everything. When you do so the most wonderful things happen. Her own trust in that guidance, and through her work in the Akashic Records, is what led her to start her training in Kinesiology and she has never looked back.
Becky describes Kinesiology as a beautiful, involved, and balancing experience, mixed with a little bit of magic! Based around the ancient Chinese concepts of energy medicine, and that everything is connected, mind, body, and soul, Kinesiology balances the body using muscle testing as a bio feedback system.
Let your body tell Becky what is out of balance and what it needs to be restored, and relax while she brings everything back into line.
Becky is very passionate about her energy work both through Kinesiology and through the Akashic Records! Being able to trace back our karmic patterns to events in past lives and to embrace the power to rewrite those records and move past the block to make real changes in the here and now is both powerful and beautiful and, in many cases, life changing.
Becky is a mum of two girls, loves trees, hugs, and to be surrounded by those who feed her soul and can be nourished by her in return. Her most important spiritual tips are to never apologise unnecessarily for who you are, always leave someone feeling better about themselves if you are able, and that self-love is the most important thing you can learn.

Shannon is one of our Tribe volunteers, dedicating her energy to promoting Soul Happy and its core ethics and values.
She has always been passionate about caring for and helping others, and wants to support others in finding balance in their lives – just as Soul Happy as given her the tools to do so in her own life.
Outside of work she is particularly interested in photography, plant medicine, sustainable living and animals. When she is not busying herself redecorating her house, and spreading a message of love and compassion for all living things, she enjoys nothing more than snuggling up with her 3 rescue cats and a recent addition to her family – a rescue puppy.
Being a sustainability advocate, Shannon is one of Soul Happy’s green champions, helping our shop and centre to continue and develop its environmental targets.

Ann is a Humanistic Integrative Therapist with her main foundation being the Person-Centred approach.
Being from a Person-Centred background Ann is non-directive. She believes in working alongside her clients to help empower them on the journey to find the answers they need.
Creating a safe space where a person is listened to with empathy, and without judgement can hopefully enable them to feel that they can express themselves more freely.
Ann says “having experienced counselling myself I know how uncomfortable it can be, but also so life-enhancing too. My aim is to support my clients during the uncomfortable moments”.
Every person is unique. Ann will work alongside you to find out what works best for you and tailor the work accordingly.
She works with a variety of issues whether that be struggling to cope with a difficult life event or maybe feeling that something ‘isn’t right’ without knowing what that something really is.
Ann has experience with counselling both adults and children having worked in a GP surgery and a school- based setting.
Ann is a yoga enthusiast and an avid reader (although not at the same time!) She finds that both of these activities help her to ‘switch off’ whilst also helping her both mentally and physically.
