The Woodland Sanctuary, home of Complementary Therapies on Wirral

Helen McCoy, THerapist at the Woodland SanctuaryThe Woodland Sanctuary – come to learn or come to relax!



The Woodland Sanctuary provides certificated insurable courses in Complementary Therapies. The comprehensive high standard of training courses provides all students with the opportunity to work within the industry on clients and is suitable for the beginner, therapists already working within a salon, or anybody wishing to start their own therapy business.

Join me and my team of small carefully selected expert trainers, in  friendly, industry led and inclusive training courses & workshops which are delivered in small groups or on a one-to-one basis.

We work closely with all our students to make sure their learning experience is effective, enjoyable and that they leave with the confidence to start using their new skills immediately.

Everyone receives a warm welcome at the Woodland Sanctuary  – we look forward to seeing you!


Healing isn’t a magical power – we can all be healers. When we help someone by listening, by giving a hug and spending time with them – when we use our own energy to make someone feel better we are healing.  If you can help someone, through a therapy or skill you have, to feel better – you are healing.  People come to see me at The Woodland Sanctuary because at some level they want to feel better – perhaps physically or emotionally  – and I have lots of ways to help!

As a complementary therapist and Reiki Master I provide relaxing therapeutic treatments which can help you to feel your absolute best.

My therapies treat you on all levels – mind, body and spirit.  At The Woodland Sanctuary, through the various treatments and services available, we can work together on your physical, mental and spiritual health  – whichever you need. You can relax, renew, restore and bring balance back into your life.  My treatments can take you away to a place of total relaxation!

My therapy room is a little oasis of calm, in an otherwise hectic world!

If you’d like to know more or would like to book a  course or treatment then please contact me for more details.

Take that first positive step and get in touch today! You’ll be glad you did.
