Spiritual Healer & Revealer of Truths
At a very young age, Stephen started to learn how to meditate and develop his abilities to communicate with different dimensional awareness.
For nearly 20 years Stephen has been working with people from all walks of life; from a glittering clientele which includes royalty, pop stars and celebrities, to the little old lady that lives around the corner. For over 7 years Stephen lived with his Guru in India learning the art of conscious becoming. Many of his clients are long-standing; he has educated in areas of meditation and personal development, as well as being a life guide to help clients through the ups and downs of what life gracefully gives us as gifts of our essential learning experience.
Stephen knows and purveys that love is the only real emotion that is constantly expanding within and all around us. Stephen understands and educates his clients that if the mind is not coming from love then it’s not a real permanent expression, and helping them to know that they are not the body/mind complex but they are beyond mind; they are already Infinite Divine Love…

Hair Stylist & Colourist
Natalie Curtis is a highly sought-after independent hair stylist who has won many prestigious awards throughout her career.
Coming to London from Glasgow, Natalie started her career working alongside John Frieda in Mayfair. An international colourist and stylist on both sides of Atlantic, Natalie travels the world on photo shoots working with TV and film companies, advertising agencies and on multiple campaigns for fashion and beauty brands. She is involved in artistic direction and brand building, having developed her own unique style.
Natalie also specialises in Thermal Cutting. The thermal system can be individually adjusted to suit every quality and length of hair; cleverly warmed, it naturally seals the ends, helping the hair to self-regenerate. This smart cutting tool provides a two-pronged attack on the hair, strengthening and allowing more elasticity; fine hair has more volume, split hair looks healthier, permed hair has more elasticity and brittle hair feels stronger. The hair is more resilient and less fibrous.
As a freelance stylist and colourist to many high profile clients, she works at major events in fashion around the world. Now based in Chelsea, London, she has an extensive client list including Catherine Deneuve, Queen Noor, Joan Rivers, Suzy Menkes, Kate Moss, Sophie Dahl, Gisele, Naomi Watts, Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon.

Psychic Counselling & Bedouin Healing
Gifted healer Dorit Itzhaki uses traditional techniques passed on through generations. Working with Turkish coffee, Dorit also uses Tarot cards to reveal your past, present and future and uses Bedouin methods to clear negativity and help with emotional difficulties with your family, partner, health, relationships or career. She can work to improve blocked energy channels and clear any negativity that may surround you as well as treating health and physical issues including infertility, acne & skin conditions such as psoriasis, sports injuries and mental and physical stress. Dorit’s methods for personal, home and business healing are renowned and she has worked all over the world with a devoted clientele which includes celebrities and royals – from rock stars to animals.
Dorit’s story: ‘I was 27 and pregnant when I was diagnosed with cancer. Not knowing what to do I returned home to Israel. My mother suggested I visited the Bedouins – a nomadic tribe who live in the Israeli desert. I was fortunate that the Bedouin decided to take me in as one of their own and treated me with their special healing techniques, thought to be thousands of years old. The Bedouins do not visit hospitals or use any western medicine but prefer their traditional way of healing using fruits, vegetables, shrubs and other things found in the desert. The Bedouin also believe strongly in the destructive power of negativity – from friends, family, neighbours or even from oneself can cause things to go wrong in our lives. On my return to England 2 months later the doctors could not believe that the cancer they thought so dangerous was no benign. This moment changed my life forever and after my daughter was born I returned to this tribe and began learning their ancient healing techniques. I have now been a Bedouin healer for over 25 years, combining their ancient practices with ancient Jewish practices (Kabbalah) and have adapted both to treat people in the west. I have had wonderful results working with cancer, hair loss, weight loss, acne, infertility, emotional problems and have travelled all over the world treating my clients. My dream is to make my amazing ancient healing system more mainstream and recognised so many more people can benefit from it’.
