“The two day workshop with Irena was illuminating. Irena created a nurturing and safe space to facilitate the exploration and healing of the false beliefs and unhelpful habits I had unconsciously been living by. The depth of work achieved in the space of the course was profound; although challenging, Irena was there to support and encourage through every step of the way. At the end of the workshop, I left with a profound sense peace within and the knowledge that I can continue this work myself having created a deep love an understanding of myself with Irena’s guidance. Thankyou for the wonderful blessing that this workshop has been.”

“It is wonderful to work with Irena. Her deeply compassionate and intuitive way invited me to connect with my higher self and inner child on a level I had not experienced before. With her presence she created a safe space, in which I could relax. I felt seen for who I truly am. It was profoundly healing for me as a man to discover and experience the calm source of strength of my inner divine masculine and this has started an unfolding that is present with me every day since the workshop. I cannot imagine a better guide and mentor for this deep work than Irena. Her presence, intuition, intelligence and wisdom are a true blessing.” FC, University Manager, Switzerland

"Returning Home To Ourself" Programmes


Our programmes and courses are about empowerment. They offer  knowledge and practices so that you can start a ‘Journey of the Self (part 1), through the Self (part 2) and back to the Self (part 3)’ (The Bhagavad Gita). The programmes will help you learn to connect to yourself and to others, develop intimacy, face and overcome your fears and false beliefs, break unhelpful patterns and manifest your gifts and talents so that you may reach your full potential. Many people who have taken our courses have transformed their lives, their relationships privately and professionally, followed their dreams or got their longstanding projects off the ground. Some have also changed careers.

5 week (online) or two mornings workshops (virtual or in personal)
Mind-set Shift (Personal Empowerment Series)

The world within is governed by the mind, thoughts, feelings and desires. We can change everything about our life by changing our attitude of mind.

When we discover how to access and harness our own inner power everything changes in and out.

This 5 week course (or two mornings in person workshop) continues ‘the journey of the self’ but this time goes deeper ‘through the self’. It will introduce you to the most powerful modalities and techniques used in the world today including some we investigated scientifically. This is an opportunity to go deeper into your own healing work and really learn more about yourself, unearthing your gifts and talents and also heal any unaddressed wounds.

This course has also been corporate & science-tested, but I have added more modalities and bonus material. It has been used in many workshops and one on one. You also get audios, videos and an opportunity to work with me.

Phone Coaching using Connecting Coaching method
Find your Gifts & Realise Your Vision or Project With Connecting Coaching

Having created and led my own businesses and projects, I understand what is required to make a project a reality.

I created Your Alchemists ‘Connecting Coaching’ process because traditional coaching methods did not work for me and other clients who kept repeating unhelpful patterns or got stuck into making their dream a reality during the coaching session. The work was not deep enough for them and so they kept coming face to face with their own unhelpful strategies which slowed and often even blocked their creative process.

This is because we can’t only “think our way through” our vision and goals. Whilst it is essential to use our intellect, we can’t be creative and analytical at the same time as both processes are different. We also can't dismiss the body and physiological responses of - hyper arousal or collapse.

The Connecting coaching process takes you through 7 steps taking into account where you are in that particular moment in time and guides you through it.

The coaching sessions are carried out over the phone in a 1.5 to 2 hour Skype session or in mornings workshops. You will receive outputs based on our work including action plans to help you realise your vision. If you feel that you might need more time, you might wish to consider doing this work as part of our mentorship programmes.

Body/Mind/Spirit Connection Proprietary Course

After three decades of body-mind practices including stage work in Europe from the age of 10, and later the UK and the USA, communications expertise in the UK House of commons, business management, clinical psychology, academic research and an International yoga and meditation teaching qualification received in India in December 2019, we are delighted to launch our own body-mind-spirit proprietary course.

Our course weaves all our practices together in meditation, elements of yoga (such as gentle stretches and breathing) and other modalities such as spiritual and compassion Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), body expression, inner voice, communication and forms of movement to help you connect to yourself in a very effective and profound way. These modalities - whether top down (such as CBT) or bottom up (meditation, yoga, movement and voice work) will help you learn to connect with yourself and explore what might be in the way of you being all you are born to be.

This course is delivered mostly in a workshop setting but can also be delivered as part of one to one coaching on Skype.
