Jane Gilbey

Flower Essences Therapist in Essex

My name is Jane Gilbey, I live at a beautiful grassland farm in North Essex with my husband and our four legged family of horses, pet sheep, dogs and cats. here we run our holiday let the Herdsman self catering barn. Our guests are able to book a massage or consultation with me as I am qualified in a number of holistic therapies. I also teach workshops and occasionally have guest speakers come to teach their areas of expertise.

It is my passion to help people get away from life stresses and constant state of doing to one of being, to help them reconnect with nature and themselves. Sometimes this is with the help of my horses. Meditating in nature, allowing the horses to hold a space for us to reflect on our lives and in turn we hold a space for them in quietness. To engage in pastimes like crafts and art, journaling and connecting with animals, trees and the elements to help bring us back to our centre, to find relaxation and peace. With the use of flower and other vibrational essences I create workshops that are interactive and experiential combining nature and the outdoors here at the farm with some classroom based pastimes in our beautiful barn.

I am also available for consultations to support and assist you through life ups and downs and in particular for your pets. Horses and Dogs are my special area of interest.
Much of my working life I have worked with children and animals. For over a decade I was a Veterinary assistant and then branch manager. I have also been a stable manager and had several horses in my life. I am qualified in the following areas:

My Specialisms

Working with vibrational essences to support animals for trauma release, anxiety issues, fears, lack of confidence and looking at things from a holistic point of view. This often entails finding out about their lifestyle, diet, the dynamics within the house hold. Often it is necessary to look at the owner/carers emotional wellbeing or other family members as it is sometimes very intertwined with the emotional state and behaviour of the pet.

Helping deepen and heal the people and pet bond.

Helping people with confidence issues, with limiting beliefs and blocks that prevent them reaching their highest potential.

Essences can help with trauma release, navigating changes, grief and bereavement, focus, motivation and learning. Finding emotional balance.

I find I am most able to help with the shy, unconfident, timid, anxious, lacking self worth individuals be that people or animals since that is what I have been for most of my life. The essences have helped me grow enormously.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I am available for a FREE 20 minute chat via phone or Skype/Zoom or similar platform to listen to your current problem and assess if what I offer can help you. I am then able to send yo over a bespoke program and fee schedule that I think will best suit you depending on the level of support you need.

I would normally recommend at least three sessions with me and offer three, six and nine session packages of consults that can be in person here at Brook Farm or Skype/Zoom distance work with essences sent to you. Packages can be tailored to suit and if at least some can be in person I can offer support in different ways to combine my other services and therapies. I also have a range of wellness products available to purchase. A package could include an introductory workshop to empower people to learn how to select appropriate essences for themselves or to have a one to one or group session at the farm with the horses, doing some guided meditation and connection with nature. It doesn't have to be inside a consulting room!
