Hello

 
Rev Trish Tidy 5For many years now I have brought a caring and individual approach to all kinds of services and  for a long time prior to this I conducted them for friends and family as and when required.
 
I have a background of several years experience as a Samaritan Counsellor and I am a fully qualified Spiritual Counsellor.  I also hold Higher Diplomas in Psychotherapy and Parapsychology and a Diploma in Holistic Hypnosis. I have trained in Public Speaking which assists me with invaluable experience in my work. I am also a Native American Sequoyah Medicine Wheel Therapist and an initiated Pagan Priestess and trained in the Egyptian Mysteries in Egypt.  I was initiated into the Native American 'White Owl Lodge' and the Egyptian temple of 'Isis'. I am also a Qabbalist and have been a student and teacher spanning over 30 years. I am also a published author of 'Quester' The Journey of the Brave. Becoming a One Spirit Interfaith Minister has further deeply enriched my life ~ enhancing my journey which has taken the scenic route to where I find myself now.
 
I feel I have come home ~ in my heart ~ and I am exactly where I need to be right now. Along the way I have gained a greater respect for all people from all walks of life and from all faiths and beliefs.
 
I have arranged and enjoyed many naming services joining in with the delight of the babies parents, family and friends. The first ceremony being for my eldest grandson Taliesin who is now 22 years old.
                                                                                                                                                                    
The Wedding Vows ceremonies and Wedding Blessings have to date included not only couples that I have met and made friends with ~ but also renewal of vows for my son and his wife. 
 
Funeral services are conducted with respect and dignity and where appropriate including tributes and eulogies ~ revisiting memories that bring joy and comfort to what maybe a very difficult time for family and friends.
 
I live in Lancashire and will conduct Funeral Services in Lancashire and Greater Manchester and will consider any area within Great Britain for any other services ~ ceremonies.
 
I am a member of the Association of Independent Celebrants and I am fully insured. Details of this membership can be found on their website www.associationofindependentcelebrants.com (A.O.I.C.)
 
I am also an ordained One Spirit Interfaith Minister creating ceremonies of your choice ~ with or without a religious content ~ but always with respect, dignity and love. You can find me on the website www.onespiritinterfaithfoundation.org (I.M.A.)
 
In June 2012 I became qualified in The Grief Recovery Method I am available for one-to-one sessions and outreach group sessions to help with your loss. You can find me on the website www.grief-recovery.co.uk 
 
In September 2017 I completed the training course with the Infant Loss Foundation, invaluable training to help me understand more fully the needs of parents who have lost their infant or sillborn baby.
