Richard Berry - Shamanic Healing Practitioner & Medium
The word shaman comes from Siberia and means "one who sees in the dark" (the hidden realities), and widely refers to those who are medicine women/men, healers, and seers. Shamans believe that all problems, physical, emotional or mental, have their root cause in spiritual imbalance. A shaman works to restore balance and wholeness by addressing the root cause of the problem. Many methods are used in shamanic healing, including retrieval of a spirit ally, soul retrieval, removal of unwanted energies, soul remembering, ancestral work, psychopomp (helping the deceased to cross over into the Light) and hands on healing.
The shaman healer moves into an altered state of consciousness to access a hidden reality in the spirit world for purposes of bringing back healing, power, and information. This is the true termanoligy but i have found over many years of doing this that as soon as i start a communication my guides are there waiting to help, I can only put this down to my mediumship abilities in which I have been developing from a very young age, this is a true gift as it helps the communication with spirit but it can also be a two-way communication between spirit and the client if this is so wished. I am clairvoyant which is the gift of sight into the spirit world without the use of trance, so when I am working with spirit I can see what they are doing and offering as a healing aid, I can then relay this to the client which can only help in there healing.
Shamans never work alone, but in conjunction with spiritual allies who guide them in providing what is needed for the client. I tell clients this is not my work, but rather Spirit working through me. My aim is always to be a clear and open channel for spirit to work through me, allowing wisdom and love to flow through for the healing of the client.
Shamanic and Spiritual Healing
I work on a shamanic and spiritual level, combining the two seems to work well for me as after the many shamanic process working with the energy seems to complement and enhance the healing.
The word Spiritual originates from the Latin 'spiritus' meaning 'breath of life'. Healing can be defined as regaining balance of mind, body and/or emotions.
Spiritual Healing is a natural energy therapy that complements conventional medicine by treating the whole person - mind, body and spirit. Healers are thought to act as a conduit for Healing energy, the benefits of which can be felt on many levels, including the physical.
The healing process can take up to an hour but I charge per session so you will always have the same charge, this can be one session or many that depends on the client and the depth of work needed.
You will be made comfortable either on rugs, cushions on the floor, a healing table or a chair, it will be preferably shoes off, but shoes on if the client so wishes, I will always try and accommodate the client in any way to make them comfortable.
The healing will normally start with a light drumming and gentle back ground music, I will ask for the presence of my healing guides and they will guide me in the best form of treatment. This is not a scary thing at all, most clients wouldn’t even know they are there, imagine working with a beautiful brightly shining Angel, most people would be happy working with them.
The Charge for Healing is £45 a session.
Working from my healing room in Tedburn saint Mary, just out side of Exeter, off the A30 and not far from the beautiful Dartmoor rolling hills.
Payment is always made up-front before the healing as this allows the client and myself to focus fully on the treatment itself. Payment can be made in cash or cheque. Alternatively, a payment can be made from paypal, credit and debit cards or bank transfer if you so wish, please contact me for details.

Absolutely beautiful drum, beautifully illustrated, sound just resonates, a pleasure to be able to own one. So many compliments, Richard and co are truly talented. When not in use has pride and place on my wall ....
I was immediately at ease with Richard and was in no doubt that he was very sure and confident in what he was doing. Afterwards I felt calm and renewed, the whole experience was very reassuring and different to what I have experienced before.
