Touchstones School: Crystal Therapy Courses 

Coronavirus Notice: The courses advertised for this Summer have all been postponed. New dates will be arranged when it is safe to study together again. Distance courses are not recognised by ACHO and should not be seen as a substitute for professional training.


Would you like to train as a Crystal Therapist? Touchstones School offers ACHO accredited crystal therapy practitioner training courses for all levels of interest, from those just starting out on their healing journey with crystals, to those who are already qualified Crystal Therapists and would like to learn more. Training is available in Mid Wales and Glastonbury.


My students travel from all over the UK and Ireland  for these courses and some also come from abroad. I often feel humbled by the distances people are prepared to travel. In recent years Students have attended from Europe, including France, Spain and Portugal and from much further afield including Brazil, Cambodia, Poland and the USA.

Lauren D'Silva Principal of Touchstones School of Crystal Therapy


I'm Lauren D'Silva, founder of Touchstones Therapies. I moved from Leicestershire to Mid Wales twelve years ago, making the transition from work in mainstream education to healing and teaching my therapies. Touchstones School of Crystal Therapy is an Affiliation of Crystal Healing Organisations (ACHO) and Crystal Therapy Council (CTC) member school. I am the current Chair of the Affiliation of Crystal Healing Organisations (ACHO). 


I am an experienced healer and also a fully qualified teacher with twenty five years of teaching experience. I'm the author of Touchstones: Foundations for the Crystal Healer, the manual for your Foundation course and Touchstones: Delving Deeper into Crystal Healing, the manual for the Certificate level course.


I believe that Touchstones School offers crystal therapy courses which can open up your understanding of crystals, energy and yourself. I get great pleasure from seeing my students develop their intuitive abilities and watching their confidence bloom.



Why Touchstones?


Historically a touchstone was a hard black stone used to test the quality of precious metals such as gold and silver according to the colour streak they made when scratched upon it. Now the term is more often used metaphorically as a sign of validity and quality. We see a touchstone as something that is enduring and dependable in the way that crystals and stones are. For us the crystals are touchstones bringing you back into connection with your eternal essence, your true Self.
