About Claire Barton

Playing Sansula at West Cork Yoga Festival

I believe in the Healing Power of Sound.   I see the power when my students learn a new song and really feel it while playing and singing with a big smile on their faces or when my  sound healing clients find a glimmer of hope during a sad time.

The vibrational energy of healing is all around us if only we can Be Present and Open up to Receive it.

I am a sound-healer, musician and author living and working on the beautiful West Cork coast of Ireland.

I started out as an ecologist and spent years surveying seabirds, whales & dolphins at sea.  Becoming a mother was a catalyst in my change of career.

In 2005, my first baby, Alan was  born prematurely at 27 weeks and died shortly afterwards. When Alan died, everything changed for me.  What was supposed to be the worst thing that happened to me turned out to be the greatest blessing. I have learnt so much from Alan-joy, pain, heart-breaking sorrow, grace, acceptance, love, compassion, empathy. But most importantly he showed me how short and precious this lifetime is and not to waste it wondering what could have been.

Motherhood and the passing of Alan opened me up spiritually and creatively.  I did a lot of energy work with some wonderful healers and started writing.  In December 2016, I self-published ‘Letting Go’ my first book & CD about my experience of Alan through my diaries, poetry & songs.

When I’m singing I enter this vulnerable but empowered state and I feel connected to my true nature.  On discovering sound healing, it was the natural next step for me.

My journey has been about self-expression- releasing the blocks in my throat chakra using the medium of sound.  When I was growing up I was very ‘nice’ and I never said what was really on my mind.  I wanted to please others and fit in.  Eventually I learnt that I was an empath and naturally sensitive.  Now I use these attributes in my work to help you to listen to your own inner voice so you can give yourself permission for your own self-expression.

I offer sound healing treatments and angel card readings in  west Cork and online.  I love running private retreats for individuals and couples. I also teach beginners ukulele classes to adults in Clonakilty.

I am blessed to live in west Cork, Ireland with my husband and two sons looking out at the sea.

My holistic qualifications:

My first experience of energy healing was with Reiki and I have completed Reiki levels 1 & 2 in the 7 level system of Reiki with my wonderful sister and Reiki master Louise Pollock.

I started taking angel communication courses with Rev. Elvia Roe in 2014 and completed my Angel Communication MasterTM class in May 2016.  Click here if you would like to connect with AngelsTeach.

In 2017, I qualified as an accredited Sound Healing practitioner with the UK College of Sound Healing, specialising in vocal sound healing.  I trained with Chrys Blanchard in Abergavenny, Wales. I also completed a ‘Gong Wisdom Training’ with Chrys. I am a current member of the College of Sound Healing and undertake CPD every year and attend the annual college conference in Great Malvern, England.
