About us

Group photoNorthumbria Healers is a community based not-for-profit organisation, run entirely by professionally trained local volunteers.

We are a group of enthusiastic healers who are committed to giving our time and expertise to support members of the community in this way. We have a wealth of skill and experience and have been offering healing sessions across the North East for many years.

We are here to support clients and members of the public suffering from a wide range of different problems.  People often describe feeling shocked, angry, depressed or isolated and in need of some help or assistance following a diagnosis for themselves or a loved one. However, you don’t need to be ill to experience healing for yourself –  you may be caring for someone who has an illness, or you may just feel out of sorts; there is hardly a soul in this world that does not require some gentle healing from time to time.

All of our healers and practitioners have been professionally trained to occupational standards and are accredited with large healing organisations such as the Guild of Professional Healers or The Healing Trust. Thanks to some welcome funding from the Awards for All Lottery Grant and also the Northumberland Community Chest Programme, we are now able to undertake this community project and offer our healing services to a wider audience, to help people live well.

The three Directors of Northumbria Healers are:-

Liz Weir:   Policy and Strategic Development

Pam Down:  Chair, Treasurer, Marketing and Legal Support

Fiona McGee:  Tutor, Operations and Business Management

Our team of volunteer healing practitioners include:-

Barbara, Jan, Pat, Bridget, Janice, Christine, June, Gill, Helen, Lesley, Pat, Lesley, Barbara, Belinda and Alison.



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.
