Alistair Smith - Sound Healing - London
Sound vibrates the body, moves the emotions, inspires the mind and touches the spirit. It is deeply relaxing, meditative and transformative.
With sound we can look after our inner world, aid our physical healing and health and balance our energetic system.
The properties of sound effect us on all levels; clearing, shifting and promoting harmony, balance and alignment. After a brief consultation, I will create a treatment tailor-made to your unique needs.
Sound healing can help with stress, tension, anxiety, depression, grief, motivation, concentration, sleep, life purpose, creativity, meditation and spiritual growth.
I have also worked with people suffering from chronic illness to support their treatment and recovery, and run sessions with several cancer support groups.
I use tuning forks, gongs, singing bowls, voice, harp, and pure therapeutic frequencies and harmonics. I also run soundbaths, workshops and retreats.
I qualified with the College of Sound Healing in 2014 and as a tutor for the College in 2017. I have attended courses with leading figures in the field of sound healing including: Fabian Maman, Jill Purce, Simon Heather, Jenni Roditi and Nikki Slade. I also have over 5 years experience of care work in hospitals, nursing homes and a hospice and have attended a course in trauma awareness. I have been a musician for more than 25 years, am a published composer, teacher and writer. I studied music at Goldsmiths University where I graduated with first class honours in 2007, winning the Barnard and Hails prize for music.
I gained my Masters in composition at Goldsmiths in 2009.
Treatments are tailor-made to you, depending on why you have come and what is needed for you at that time. We will have a brief chat when you arrive and will set a clear intention for the session.
I will make sure you are completely comfortable and lead you through a short guided relaxation before the sound begins.
I use theory and methods learned from The College of Sound Healing as a foundation for my sessions.
I practice from my home in Crouch End, North London.
I am fully insured with Holistic Insurance Services and am a member of The College of Sound Healing.

What happens in a treatment?
Sound may be used to scan over and around your body to pick up areas of imbalance, dissonance or restrictions. Various sounds can be used to activate, unbind and shift these areas. Harmonic sounds will then be used to balance, harmonise and align. All sounds are made with a loving intention for your highest good.
Voice is used intuitively with certain pitches, vowels or harmonics. Wind, Sun and Symphonic gongs, as well as singing bowls may be used throughout the session. Tuning fork protocols are chosen focussing on particular qualities and properties.
Sometimes, with your approval, frequencies are applied directly to the body.
After the sound there will be a short period of silence for you to integrate the sound, followed by grounding. This involves the use of low sounds played or sung whilst I hold your feet.
At the end of the session we will have another brief chat about your experiences during the treatment. I will make sure you feel clear and grounded before you leave.
I have never felt more nurtured in any other therapy session than when working with Alistair. Top class healing given by a man who genuinely loves his work and cares for his clients.

My second treatment, using his own unique methods and an ensemble of instruments, worked wonders in re-aligning my energies so that I could work to my optimum potential

Helen - Hertfordshire
The experience of the sound was extraordinary.
I felt the changes occurring a couple of days after each session. He was very open and friendly, enabling me not to resist the process and allow the sound to work.
Phil - London
I felt like all dissonance had gone, physically, mentally and spiritually, and that harmony had been restored.
The Sound Healing is not only very effective, it is also an enjoyable and invigorating experience. Highly recommended!

Alistair is a lovely guy with a lovely gentle energy and manner that immediately makes you feel totally at ease. You also feel you are in the hands of a very competent professional. I found each session very nurturing and felt a profound enhancement in my personal awareness and my being which 'resonates' in my life
