The Directors

Liz Weir:  Policy and Strategic Development

Liz WeirLiz has been practising as a healer practitioner, teacher, coach and Journey therapist for many years in the North East and elsewhere. With considerable experience in building networks in the business sector, she combines those skills with her deep personal interest in the role of healing in helping to understand the fundamental link between spiritualty and well-being.

Liz has helped many clients and students to find greater peace and fulfilment in their lives by helping them to identify and clear the often restrictive and limiting conditioning and patterning that blocks the individuals’ natural pathway to growth and expansion.

Liz lives in Northumberland and runs workshops, individual sessions and retreats to help deepen our understanding of what is happening in our lives and in our world at this time of great change.

She is joint co-ordinator of Gentle Touch North, a support group for healers and sound healers from the North-East and Cumbria, which meets once a month in Hexham.

Northumbria Healers was set up in April 2012 to provide a centre for the provision of healing services to local communities in Northumberland and Tyneside.

The centre at Riding Mill in Northumberland offers you the opportunity to experience the relaxing benefits of energy healing in a welcoming and calming space.  Healing sessions are available on the last Saturday of every month and will complement any medical treatment or medication that you are taking, with a view to helping you to manage the impact of your illness.

The Centre is open to all and is based at the Parish Hall, Millfield Road, Riding Mill, NE44 6DJ from 2-4pm.  No appointment is necessary, just drop in, but please be aware that the last healing session is at 3.40pm.  The atmosphere is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Should you have to wait, you will be offered some light refreshment, until a healer is available for you.

Healing is offered free of charge, but to help towards the rent and running costs, donations are appreciated in order to keep the Centre open. A suggested donation is £5.00 but we are grateful to accept whatever you can afford .

On occasion we also use Newton and Bywell Community Hall at Newton, near Corbridge. For details of where and when the Healing Centre will be held, please click here.

The Healing Centre is easily reached by road or rail. For further details please click on the Google Maps icon below.

*This project is supported by the Awards for All Lottery Grant and by Northumberland County Council Community Chest Programme.

For dates of the Healing Centres, please see the Events page.
