Written by Jodie Bedford

My eyes full of tears, I wrapped my arms around my beloved husband.  My fingers snaked around his neck.  I just wanted to memorize and drink in his beautifully handsome face.  This was just so unfair.  I glanced at our only son, Bill, who was sat on his blanket trying to figure out why he couldn’t fit the square wooden piece into the round hole.  My dear boy, thankfully, was oblivious.


With one last kiss on my nose, he walked down the path, vowing to write every day.   That was it.  He was gone and I was left alone to, how could I describe it, grieve, for my husband.  I scooped Bill up and laid him gently on our bed.  Curled up and crying silently into his neck, I wondered how was I ever going to cope and muster up the strength to carry on?  I quickly decided that I would live day by day, letter by letter.

from-the-horses-mouthSophia, can you tell me a bit about yourself? I am a mother and have a beautiful little boy called Roman who’s just two. I’m currently living in Rossendale in Lancashire and I have a practice at a clinic there called Sunnyside Clinic. However, I’m moving over to Hebden Bridge soon where there are lots of other therapists and holistic practitioners.

So have the floods affected the work I understand you already do in Hebden? No, I have delayed working there until February, being sensitive to the situation and having just launched my practice here. However, Bodyworks @ Organic House is fortunately unaffected by the flooding – the focus has been to get things back to normal so it made sense to delay plans.

So what kind of therapist are you? I’m a Shamanic Healer and I use a number of other ancient practices. I have trained in Kundalini meditation and yoga and I’m a Reiki master, NLP practitioner and nutritionist. Currently I am specialising in Paleo Nutrition and ancient approach to diet and wellbeing. I heal the heart, mind and soul.
