Sheila Whittaker

Sheila Whittaker is a Therapist and Sound Healer with a background in classical music – she is a professional violinist & musician, having studied at the Royal College of Music & graduated with a GRSM degree & ARCM diploma. For nearly twenty years she had a thriving career in the mainstream classical music world, freelancing with many orchestras & chamber groups & running a teaching practise alongside her performing work.

Some years ago Sheila embarked on an alternative musical route, as a Sound Healer, feeling the need to use her musical abilities in a more focused holistic way. She did further training with Simon Heather and Don Conreaux, and has now specialised in using very high quality large gongs in her Sound Healing work.

Sheila is gong tutor for the College of Sound Healing, teaching the Gong modules, Chant/Mantra, & Harmonium workshops. She authored & teaches the one-year Gong Practitioner Training course for the College. For two years she was Chairperson for the College.

She has recorded three Gong CD’s – “Transcendence”, “Quantum Transformations”, &“Sounds of Stillness”. In 2010 she wrote & published her first book :“Sound Healing with Gongs – a Gong book for Beginners”. Sheila has appeared on the radio, & has gong videos on YouTube. She is a member of the CMA & the UK Sound Healers Association, & has a private therapy & teaching practice in Honiton, Devon.
