A warm welcome to Connections With Spirit Crystal                                                          Therapist Association


                                        So who exactly are we?

We are a U.K. Kent based Complementary Health Practice who are also certified by the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine to deliver Crystal Healing Courses to the public as well as many other courses.

After  much consideration, we at Connections with Spirit, have decided that  Crystal Therapists are often harshly criticized and they need a bit more support, security and credibility with their work, should clients wish to check up on them to see if they are insured, trained professionals. So we are offering all our certified students our certified badge for their websites with their own personal ID number. This verifies their training, authenticity, ethical standing and personal responsibility and insurance. 

Therapists who join us will be listed on our well established website, which has a very good public traffic volume, with the areas they cover and their contact details. They will also be listed every month in our newsletter, Instagram  and twitter posts.

Unfortunately, we CANNOT provide these certified badges to those who have not trained with us.

We ask that you contribute to a subscription of £40.00 per year, for this service, a percentage of which goes to the dog rescues which we support. If you are already with us and would like a badge for another therapy your charge will be £20 per badge. 
We would prefer a bank transfer for this payment and we will send you a receipt for your accounts. We strongly advise you to set up a yearly standing order, just in case you forget to renew your subscriptions and loose your badge. If you cannot  keep up with your subscription payments, please do let us know and we can either freeze your badge until you can resume paying, or we can cancel your badge and ID number, and removed your listing from the website.

Please contact us here if you would like to discuss this.

We at Connections with Spirit are honoured that you have chosen us to represent your ethical  practice, and we welcome you with love, light and open hearts.

If you would like to be a member of C.W.S Card readers Association, please contact us here

We retain the right to revoke your badge if we have credible evidence that a reader is failing in their duty to provide good therapeutic help and they fail in their personal responsibility. Also, if we receive a verifiable complaint that we consider impacts on us, our ethics and our other members, as an Association, we will cancel your membership and badge number forthwith.


Connections With Spirit are proud to  recognise Margaret West as an Approved Training Provider in Crystal Therapy with the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine. Once our students are accredited, they may apply for membership with the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine, and they will be entitled to use the letters IPHM after their name.

Margaret West has been a Crystal Healer for over three decades, she had taught many Enlightening Crystal Therapy for Beginners Workshops, which have proved to be very successful in Kent and London. Now she is offering Practitioner Level Qualification, Accredited by the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine.

If you are worried that this type of therapy may not be for you, yet you are interested in it, then why not try our introduction to crystals course First.

To become a proficient Crystal Therapist you will need dedication and a huge respect for crystals. Two of the  most important things in Crystal Healing. Margaret has  been a Crystal Therapist for over two decades and runs a busy holistic practice in Kent. Margaret knows that when you become a Practitioner, it doesn't mean that you will know everything there is to know about crystal healing. New crystals are emerging all the time and  new ways  to use them therapeutically are always being discussed. Margaret's dedication to each student, shows how serious she is about Crystal healing and she has agreed to become your teacher for life. As far as we are aware, NO teacher in the Kent county offers this wonderful opportunity. So do not be worried about venturing out alone into the healing crystal worksfield, as you will always have Margaret for guidance.

There are no hidden extras to pay out for this course. Any new knowledge which comes to light, will be taught in the beautiful crystal cave group that she has on facebook. This group holds many different files on crystal healing that Margaret uses to this day in her practice. Videos will allow you to see into her holistic life and how different crystals work on the body.  So we strongly urge you to join facebook, even if it is just to gain access for your CPD. Margaret has a deep connection to crystals and feels their energy very deeply. For the course she will provide each student  with a hand picked,  AAA grade chakra crystal healing set, to facilitate their amazing crystal journey.

The work of a Practitioner never ends and your collection of Therapeutic Crystals will grow with your expertise and knowledge. A lot of people worry that they will need to remember so many crystals that it puts them off doing the course.Margaret believes that only someone with the memory of an elephant can remember every single crystal  and its uses. So during the course, she will show you different techniques to help you remember and store information which you can easily access. 

This crystal course has many different branches. You will touch on healing animals with crystals, how to feel crystal energy and 'listen' as the crystals talk to you through their vibrations, how crystals can heal via colour, rather than their property value, you will learn how to make healing grids and so much more. Also, She will touch on how to use them during end of life care.

So now for a bit of crystal science

Through scientific evidence, one thing affects another, as we are all interconnected on a subtle level that we cannot perceive or begin to understand. We are not attached to the planet, but instead, we are an integral part of it. Many Crystal healers believe that our disconnection from the planet/nature is the underlying cause to many conditions, whether it is in the Mind, Body or Spirit and we need to address this to be able to live a good healthy life. 

The human body is crystalline in nature. When we get kidney stones, they are in fact Crystals that the body has formed naturally, when we die our blood becomes crystalline and urine, once dry, becomes crystalline in nature. So given this evidence, it is no surprise that the body can connect with Crystals on a very deep level. 

When a Therapist places Crystals on the body, they are looking for a way to connect the body back to the planet and its healing resources. When the right vibration connects with the body, it begins to realign its energy to gently manipulate the body’s energy back to a healthy point. All the complex parts of the body need to work together, like a car. If one part of is out of sync then everything else will begin to fail.

After you have successfully completed the written, practical and course assessments, you will receive an Accredited Certificate, which enables you to get insurance as a Crystal Therapist and which will allow you be become to be a member of the very prestigious Organization, The International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine, should you wish to.

This course will be run over two weekends, with a three week period of self -study for practical and written work to be assessed, emailed to Margaret and graded, then a further one day for practical assessments.

         Testimonies for the certified crystal course.

Tracey - kent
A very enjoyable experience. Margaret and Emma made the days interesting and full. The time went by very quickly. I was surprised that we managed to fit it all the training in, but i feel that there was actually enough time. Thank you for everything.
Abigail - Kent
I really enjoyed my time with Margaret and Emma. The course was delivered at a nice pace and i felt we received enough practical , theory and study time, as well. I feel that i have come away armed with lots of information and i feel very supported in the knowledge that Margaret is there with continuous support in a therapist crystal group on Facebook. I feel very confident to treat clients with my new crystal skills. Thank you for keeping us well supplied with cakes and goodies too.
Janet - Kent. 
The crystal course was very hard work but so exciting. I loved every moment. There is so much information to take on that i am glad the crystal group on Facebook will be there to support me. Emma was such a great help to me as well.Thank you Margaret for your support and encouragement.
Claire - Kent.
I felt very apprehensive going to the crystal workshop, but Margaret and Emma made me feel very welcome and nothing was too much bother for them. When things did not sink in straight away, Margaret was very happy to go over things until you understood it. NO question was stupid and she encouraged them. Margaret and Emma run very professional workshops and you always learn so much.
Tracy - Kent
I really enjoyed this course. The help and support you get from Margaret via Facebook is brilliant. The more i practice the more i begin to understand the power of crystals and gain more confidence. The homework time was enough to learn what we had to. I am so proud to be called a crystal therapist.
Jacqueline - Kent
I have really enjoyed the crystal healing course. The whole course was well structured, pleasant environment and friendly students. Margaret west is a superb teacher and i respect her knowledge. She made time for each student and answered all their questions. Fruit and cakes are a nice addition and they were very very much enjoyed. I really loved making my own crystal mandala. A nice personal; touch. Thank you so much.
Debbie - Kent
I absolutely loved the crystal course. There was a lot to take in and i felt the pressure! Margaret's crystal cave idea on Facebook is an excellent idea to continue our personal development and not feel so alone. Margaret is a font of knowledge. I am so pleased that i have successfully completed the course. I loved doing the hands on therapies as well as the class work. I would certainly be interested in any future refresher courses or therapist days. Thank you for putting up with my nerves Margaret. 
Melissa - Kent
So pleased i did this workshop. I have had a love for crystals for many years and have attended many one day workshops. BUT, on this course you get an insurable qualification that i can add to my list of therapies.
Amanda - Kent
I am so pleased to have participated as a student in Margaret's crystal course. I have waited 3 years to do this with Margaret, as i knew when i first saw her that she'd eventually be my crystal therapist teacher and a lifetime of inspiration. What a wonderful course and thank you for making it so easy to follow and understand. Especially for people like me who suffer from dyslexia and discalculiar. From now on i will do everything that was taught to me by Margaret and i will practice all the time until my hubby builds me a therapist cabin next year as my prize for passing this course. This is my dream come true at long last.
Jodie - Kent.
The crystal course was intensive and very informative. It was a combined balance of theory and practical which was really helpful to establish learning. I really enjoyed myself on this course as the atmosphere was extremely friendly and small enough to build a great rapport with the other students. Margaret was a very enthusiastic and passionate tutor and crystal therapist, yet very professional. She is ready to answer all queries and i feel blessed to have been a part of this course. It has felt like i was around good friends throughout the whole course. Thank you Margaret for all your help.
