Hope College of Crystal Healing was founded in 2009 by Sandra Hope-Maskell who is qualified teacher (PGCE) and a Crystal Healing Practitioner (MIACHT). From an early age Sandra felt a close bond to the mineral kingdom, but it wasn’t until an emotional trauma in 2002 that her personal journey with crystals really began to take off. She achieved her first Certificate in Crystal Therapy in 2004 then went on to complete a two-year ACHO accredited Diploma. Sandra gained experience by working in holistic centres and crystal shops for 12 years, offering treatments, advice and running crystal workshops. Hope College of Crystal Healing was accepted as a member of The Affiliation of Crystal Healing Organisations in 2010 and Sandra went on to hold the post of Secretary for 7 years, and is currently the Disciplinary Chair of ACHO. She has been a speaker at the Crystal Enlightenment Conference and a facilitator at two Crystal Retreats. She feels she has worked with crystals during many lifetimes and now has special interests in Ancient Civilisations, Past Lives, Kundalini and Earth Energy. Sandra believes that learning should be fun. With her passion for crystals and down to earth teaching style she aims to bring out the best in all her students.
