Minerva Women Flower Circle


What is Flower Psychometry Health ?

Flower Reading is an Old Wise Woman tradition of taping into the interpretation of the Language of Nature, as spoken through plants, flowers and natural products like:  shells, small branches, leaves, rocks, crystals, etc.  We are all made of vibrating energy, everything in life is connected with each other. By understanding and interpreting the energy of life, the vibrational patterns, the cycles, the changes and the relationships between ourselves and the natural element and environment this  will help make us a better person and help to connect to our own natural vibration. Nature provides life guidance and healing remedies. With flower readings and healing you will find the messages, guidance, healing, balance and support you need to make your life a better place to be.

The Wise Women Counselling


Women are resilient and strong. All women are beautiful and special. Things in life do happen but that does not change our way of viewing the world and our life. Sometimes we need a little help to guide us through the ever changing times,

to develop or own inner-strength; to help cope with difficult emotions and to overcome insecurity and painful experiences.





Grief and loss counseling

Grief is a natural response to loss. The loss of a beloved one, loss of a pet, a miscarriage, a divorce, health, job, home, country.

Grief is expressed in many ways, according to our personal feelings, religion, culture and social view. The greater the loss, the more intense is the grief. Grief has no specific set pattern, and it is not regulated by time. Grief is an individual experience that can last weeks, months, years, and can reappear on the surface at any time.

Grief can affect your life, thoughts, behavior, emotion, health and social life. It can affect your ideas in regards to life and your identity, it challenges beliefs, culture and religion. It affects your relationship with other people or the way you see them.

Grief, especially if unresolved for a prolonged time, can lead to depression and severe emotional imbalance.

Grief can be expressed through anger, frustration, a sense of disbelief, shock, regret, sadness, relief, feeling overwhelmed and confusion. Prolonged grief can make you feel hopeless and isolated.

Emotions, however, are essentially vital to help you through the process of grief and help you in the development of new experiences. Grief is unique and personal; it takes time to work through it. Sometimes it is difficult to allow ourselves to grieve and express our emotions.

Support from family and friends is important, as sometimes you need someone that can help you talk about your loss and help you through the process of healing. Healing is not forgetting. Healing is to recognise, acknowledge, respect and sanctify the experience of loss with consciousness and inner peace.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help, consultation is judgement free. This time will be used to help you recognise and work with your inner feeling, overcome your pain and work step-by-step according to your needs towards harmonious healing.







Homeopathic Holistic Health Consultation


Holistic health: holistic health is a combination of modern, old, scientific alternative and complementary treatment. A holistic practitioner provides the patient with the option of pharmaceutical natural medication, herbs, flower therapy supplement, or alternative treatment like: counseling, meditation, journaling or homeopathy. Holistic practitioners encourages diagnostic testing to attempt to find any underlining physical and organic changes to exclude any severe conditions.


Homeopathy: homeopathic science is the study of the whole person, general health, diet, work status, constitutions, appearance, family history, like and dislike, environment, emotional state, stress levels and personality.

Homeopathy is based on the theory of “like curers  like".

Homeopathy uses a very small amount of ingredients taken from natural plants, flowers and other natural sources to trigger the body's

self-healing responses.

Homeopathy looks at the whole picture, working together with the person treating the patient not the disease.


 Homeopathic Holistic Consultation uses both of the methods to reach best results  for the patient according to preference and needs.







Flower Psychometry Therapy Consultation

Flower essence therapy is the practice of using flower essences to help balance and restore emotional and organic imbalance. Together with Psychometry you can discover your life purpose, inner development and health issues.

The therapy, connects flowers to our mind using the flower vibrational energy to mirror our state of health and to identify emotional and spiritual imbalances.

The 'chosen' flower (it can also be a small stone, pebble, wooden stick, pinecone, shell, etc.) can be used to provide insight to our health and personal problems.


Dr Edward Bach (1886–1936), the patrons of Flower therapy, developed the idea that we are naturally attracted to a flower that mirrors a discordant state of mind. He teaches that the flower also contains the energy pattern we require to regain harmony between the ego- personality and the inner-self soul.

Flowers are the identi-kit of our soul vibrations and the key to our emotional health.



Indian Head Massage

Originating in India over 1000 years ago, it is based on the ancient healing system of Ayurveda.

IHM works on the Chakra System (vortex of energy connected to the inner organs) massage involves the stimulation of acupressure points of  the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, hands, neck, scalp, ears and face. 

Indian head massage helps to:

  • relieve eye tiredness

  • assist in relieving insomnia

  • assist in relieving headaches and migraines

  • relax muscles

  • stimulate the hair and scalp

  • stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation

  • stimulate  the immune system

  • relieve stress and anxiety

  • relieve sinusitis

  • assist in relieve unconscious or hidden painful emotions

  • assist in emotional harmony and inner peace

The massage is done in a seated position and fully clothed.  The therapist will then stand behind (or slightly to the side) of the client to perform the massage.  A treatment session usually lasts for 20 minutes.  IHM can be used in conjunction to other therapies.

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a form of hands on healing that uses universal life force energy “KI”.

 This form of healing is generally used for specific healing and general relaxation. Reiki practitioners do not claim Reiki to treat and cure any aliment, as Reiki is not  a medical treatment but uses  natural energy to  stimulate and enhance the life force vitality so the body's innate healing can be activated and supported to achieve balance and  health. Reiki healing is used in hospital, nursing homes and in schools. Reiki helps recover from grief, trauma and loss. It can support a faster recovery after a surgery. Reiki helps to cope, and sometimes helps to overcome the emotional and physical stress of a long term condition, chronic disease, and chronic pain during terminal cancer treatment. Reiki is also used to help unblock emotional problems and help achieve spiritual balance. Reiki is not a religion, not a spiritual system. Reiki is a powerful complement to all other healing modalities. It facilitates healing and support but does not interfere with other treatments.

 Simple to learn and simple to use.
