Sandra is the Founder and Principal of Hope College of Crystal Healing (P.HCCH)

and she is a fully qualified teacher (PGCE) and Crystal Practitioner (M.IACHT).


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 continued

her professional training, gaining experience by spending eleven years working in holistic centres and crystal shops

 where she offered treatments, advice and ran crystal workshops.


Her Spiritual development began over 20 years ago when she started experiencing a natural Kundalini awakening.

This opened doorways into her Lemurian past and brought guidance from higher beings. She feels she has worked with crystals

during many lifetimes and now has a special interest in Ancient Civilisations, Sacred Geometry, Crystal Skulls and Earth Healing.


In 2010 Hope College of Crystal Healing was accepted as a member of The Affiliation of Crystal Healing Organisations

and Sandra began to run ACHO accredited training courses. She is now a member of the Crystal Therapy Council (CTC)

and is the current secretary of ACHO. 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 of her students.


Sandra runs accredited Crystal Therapy Foundation, Certificate and Diploma Courses as well as one-day workshops and Master

Classes in the following locations: Liverpool, Wirral, Chester, Nothwich, Deeside, and Colwyn Bay.

Stephanie Perring

Following the death of her father in 2005, Stephanie left her job as a Speech and Language Therapist to concentrate on family

and unbeknown to her, get onto the path that has led to her crystal journey. She studied Reflexology for a year and was

taught by a wonderful teacher who opened the doors to her spiritual side. Stephanie also went on to train as a Reiki Master.

Having never worked with crystals before, Stephanie just 'knew' on some deeper level that they needed to be incorporated

into her life. This inner knowing grew and at the beginning of 2014 (following the death of her mother) Stephanie began

to look for an appropriate course. She found Sandra: her course was the one that resonated the most and despite having to

wait another year for the course to start, Stephanie knew it was the right thing to do. In 2015 she embarked on the

HCCH Certificate course, followed by the Diploma training and she is currently studying to become a Crystal Master.


Stephanie says, 'The course, the amazing people I have met who have become life long friends and. of course Sandra's

inspirational teaching, has been simply transformational. I am a therapist at heart and it brings me great joy to work with others,

facilitate their own learning and, of course, to keep learning myself as I develop and evolve. I just love crystals and

I am thankful for their part in my life'.


Stephanie will be running Crystal Therapy Foundation courses in the Bangor and Llandudno.

 Cathy Stredwick

Cathy started looking to her own wellbeing back in 2003 following emergency heart surgery. This pushed her into

exploring complementary therapies and after attending various workshops and courses in she qualified as an

aromatherapist and Reiki Master Teacher. However, the universe decided that she still had other hurdles to face and in

2011 Cathy was diagnosed with cancer. Timely successful medical intervention led to a complete re-evaluation of her

life and she gave up her career and moved to North Wales to set up her own holistic therapy business. She now works as

a community therapist with a local Hospice in Lincolnshire where she now lives.


Having collected crystals since she was a little girl, she found that following the diagnosis, they started to play an increasing

role in her life. A set of chakra crystals were given to her as a thank you and then to push her even further down the crystal

pathway, an elderly shopkeeper in Switzerland who spoke very little English, handed her a crystal from Kandersteg mountain

making reference to her cancer surgery!  Then she found Hope College of Crystal Healing and in 2016 she began training on

our Diploma course.  


Cathy says, “As a therapist, accredited courses are very important to me and is one of the reasons I chose Hope College

Not for one minute when I signed my enrolment forms did I imagine that it would become such an important part of

my life, and in my wildest dreams never imagined that I would be asked to become one of its Tutors.  It truly is an honour

to be a part of this amazing organisation.  I am now studying to become a Crystal Master and looking at reinforcing the

floors of my house to cope with the weight of all my new crystal buddies”.


Cathy will be running Crystal Therapy Foundation courses in Lincolnshire.
