About Jan Hiscock
Have you ever felt lost and alone, I know I did. I couldn’t understand it. I had everything I needed – a nice home, loving family, friends, food on the table, but there just seemed to be something missing.
I am a mother of twin girls who I am very proud of, love living in the countryside with my husband and family and try to walk with my dog every day in the woods. This is where I can connect with nature and myself. A mindful walk through the trees is not only magical but refreshes and re-energises my soul. But there was still something missing – and that was me – THE TRUE ME. Somewhere over the years I had got lost in working, being a Mum, trying to keep everyone happy, that is all except me. It felt like there was a piece of the jigsaw missing from my life and I felt this in my Solar Plexus, that slightly icky feeling you get in your tummy when something just doesn’t feel right. Maybe you are feeling this too.
So what had happened! When my girls were small I had worked part-time and completed an MA in Women’s Studies. I love to learn and discovered that I was passionate about the major debates around who we are as women in current times. My passion focused on how women engage with the world around them as individuals, mothers, grandmothers, wives and friends, everyday folk like you and me.
My studies taught me how women’s stories had been influenced by the current trend of the time. My big question was – Am I a feminist? Well yes I am, but not in radical terms. I believe that we as women have our story to tell, we have value, worth and plenty to contribute to our community locally and globally. Feminism for me is about choice and this is what I realised I was so passionate about. I simply wanted the choice and to be the best version of me that I could be.
When I finished my MA I was asked to take a PGCE in teaching at the local Infant School where I had been working part-time. I loved working with the children and believe they taught me more than I taught them! However, I was still feeling that gap, that empty feeling, that there was something out there for me that could fulfil me even more.
So my personal journey started 5 years ago when I decided to leave teaching to learn more about me.
My first step was to train and develop my skills as a Reiki Practitioner. I had been having some sessions with a wonderful Counsellor. In these sessions we had been slowly putting me back together again piece by piece. I have always been fascinated in the way the mind and body interact with each other and was drawn to explore holistic healing rather than go down the medical/anti-depressant route. I had seen a leaflet about Reiki at the clinic I saw my counsellor and was drawn to pick it up. I was intrigued and my counsellor suggested that if I was drawn to this, then maybe I should see if this was for me.
This was the first step onto my soul path, my life journey, of integrating healing into my life and I have not stopped since! I knew that I wanted more. My passion had been reignited, I was beginning to understand who I was and I wanted to share my journey with others.
Since then I have qualified as a Reiki Master Teacher, Reiki Drum Practitioner, Crystal Reiki Practitioner, Meditation Teacher, EFT/Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner and am currently training to be a Gong Practitioner. This has been an amazing journey fuelling a passion about what I do and I have met some amazing people along the way.
Now I can share my knowledge, experience and creativity to inspire other women to discover their true self and value so they can follow their soul path and fulfil their dreams.
I believe in a holistic approach and am committed to offering you what you need. Everyone has their personal journey and I am keen to make sure that what I offer is tailor made for you. This could be a stand-alone therapy or a combination of the services that I offer. It will grow and develop as we go along, I am always happy to listen.
As well as the therapies I offer, I enjoy writing meditations and am constantly researching and learning new things.
I enjoy cooking and baking, hence the homemade cakes at my groups! I love knitting too and if you pop over to my shop you can buy one of my hand-knitted chakra lap blankets. My connection to nature has encouraged me to follow my path as an Earth Mother and my friends, family and clients love the nurturing environment of The Healing Hub. I am often referred to as their Earth Mumma and Auntie Jan. I am always here to lend a listening ear, a cuppa and a hug!
My ethos is to empower people to find their path, to heal their past and to move forwards with confidence and their head held high. We all have ups and downs in our lives and it is important to see life’s obstacles as hurdles that can be overcome rather than brick walls that keep us stuck.
For me learning about who I am, the real me, healing wounds from the past and delving into personal development and discovery is enabling me to dig down and find the true me. It has been an amazing journey and I have only just got started. The jigsaw of my life is coming together, piece by piece and life for me has become much more integrated and fulfilling. There is still a nagging feeling that there is still more to do, but this time I know where I am going and what I want to do.
I would love to share this with you and pass on what I have learned so far, allowing you to step onto your path of self-discovery.
I am proud of me and I want to help you be proud of you too.
So come on in, see how I can guide and empower you. Let me hold your hand as you step onto your path and begin your own amazing journey.
I look forward to meeting you.
