The home of seasonal, intuitive and expressive floral design and experiences. Rachel Petheram of Catkin Flowers uses nature intuitively to restore and renew.
We all know that gardens and nature have the power to restore. To have the space and peace to stop, to breathe, to empty your mind and to just be is amazingly powerful and a beautiful tool to find some mental space and peace. As well as a florist, Rachel is a reiki practitioner and uses flowers and energy together to help people to move forward in their lives.
Flowers have their own energetic signature so the individual flowers you choose have meaning – you are drawn to them for a reason. Finding the space to listen to what they are saying with the help of an intuitive and sensitive facilitator gives scope for creating beautiful personal transformation through connection with flowers and nature.
