This week, we had the opportunity to speak with Pippa Moye, a Healing Therapist and Coach. We discussed her beginnings, learned about the Catalyst Life Coaching, and what she loves most about her profession.
When did you first know that being a Healing Therapist was your calling and how did it come about?
Somewhere around 2010 or 2011, I was drawn to healing as something I wanted to do for others. I had done my Reiki 1st Degree in 2008, though at that stage it was just for me. I had been seriously ill a few months earlier and was not recovering properly. I was getting no help from NHS doctors, so I decided to learn how to heal myself. At the same time, I was going through a spiritual awakening. The effects of the illness had really torn my life apart, so I turned to Spirit for help and guidance. I discovered my local Spiritualist church and I received healing there every week. I think this is what inspired me. I attended development circles at the church to improve my ability to channel, with the intention to make myself a strong healer. I did my Reiki 2nd Degree in 2012 and then started doing healing professionally. I believe I was guided in this direction on purpose, pulled away from my previous career and pushed towards healing because it’s what I was put here to do, to help others in this way.
We noticed that you also do readings – what is the most popular type of reading that customers are looking for? What are the most common concerns that interest them?
Most commonly, I do psychic readings – what I call life path readings. Essentially, I’m looking at the person’s life with a birds-eye view and showing the map of what I can see – the options, possible obstacles or opportunities, likely outcomes of various alternatives. This gives them the ability to make informed choices and have more clarity about which way to proceed.
I sometimes do mediumistic readings as well. In this type of reading, I’m working with the energy of someone in spirit, rather than the energy of the person in front of me. The guidance can be a little biased because the person in spirit will have their own opinions just as they did in life. However, it’s usually a great comfort to the client to know that their loved one is looking out for them.
The usual concerns are health, relationships, and work. Sometimes people also want to know about a house move. I’m pretty accurate on locations and timings, as well as being able to see hidden motivations or emotional issues. I have been able to assist with medical problems, for instance where something has been misdiagnosed, to pinpoint the area of the body so that the client can go back to the doctor and get it properly investigated. I’ve also been able to locate lost items using remote viewing.
How would you describe Catalyst Life Coaching and what can a person expect from it?
This is a type of life coaching from California that works on the basis of positive psychology. It’s a little different from what you’ll find in the UK because it also contains elements of counseling to help deal with anything from the past that is tripping someone up in the present. The positive psychology aspect is about using the person’s strengths and resources to help them move forward, instead of focusing on what is lacking. I like this way of working. It’s empowering to the client and gets great results.
What other services do you offer?
I offer counseling and psychotherapy as well. I found that some of the issues that clients bring are quite severe and that coaching and healing are not always sufficient. I was frustrated because I knew that I could have done more for certain individuals if only I’d had the skills. So I decided to do the full psychotherapy training and be able to provide proper support for clients with mental health problems and deeper emotional issues.
What is the most important detail in maintaining a relationship of mutual trust with customers?
I’d say it comes down to respect. People feel able to trust me because they know I respect them as an individual and that I’ll respect their beliefs and opinions and take them seriously no matter what they tell me.
What do you love most about your profession?
Being able to help people find their way and see them flourish. It’s a great privilege to be trusted with the details of a person’s life and I never take that for granted. Then to be able to work with that information and help someone go from pain and confusion to feeling strong and in control of their life, it’s a real pleasure.
