‘House healer’ who aims to rid homes of their negative energy
Can a home really benefit from alternative therapy? Sharon Dale reports.
PEOPLE often form the wrong impression of Sandra Kendrew and as she strolls up my garden path, she makes light of this misconception: “I’ve parked my broomstick,” she says.
Actually she travels by shiny 4x4 and there is nothing witchlike about her. There isn’t even a hint of hippy about Sandra, who is every inch the smart Harrogate lady.
If you didn’t know you’d never guess her profession, which could easily be condemned as hocus-pocus by the uninitiated.
Sandra is a house healer, whose job is to rid properties of their negative energies and make them healthier and happier places to be.
“If you can’t relate to that then think about atmospheres. We’ve all been in homes that feel sad, creepy or just ‘not right’.
“And estate agents often refer to ‘divorce houses’, which are properties that come up for sale every three or four years because the couple who live there have split up.
“A lot of that is down to detrimental energy,” says Sandra, who has used her powers to help sell property.
“I recently healed a house in Durham that had been on the market for two years. It had a lot of negative energy but I did some healing and it sold within three weeks.”
Detrimental energy can also lower the immune system and affects mental and physical health, according to Sandra, who puts it down to three factors:
Geopathic stress, which is caused by the earth’s natural energy including underground water, fault lines, ley lines and curry lines.
Geomagnetic stress caused by pylons, wi-fi and other electrical equipment.
Geopsychic stress created by the occupants, previous occupants or lost souls (possibly the energy of a person who died in traumatic circumstances).
She can pinpoint all this remotely using your address, maps and floor plans of your property, by “tuning in” and dowsing with rods.
She also asks clients to fill in a questionnaire about the house and their health.
The healing process is esoteric and requires a big leap of faith.
“It is a transference of energy. I focus my attention with the power of intent on a house or person and channel universal energy asking to change any non-beneficial energies into beneficial ones,” says Sandra.
Most of her work is done remotely, and recent successes include a house in Melbourne, where the occupants had been ill since moving in three years ago. “It was built on an Aboriginal burial ground,” Sandra explains.
Registered by the British Society of Dowsers, she became a house healer 10 years ago after selling her complementary health centre in Harrogate, where she was a nutritional consultant and life coach.
“I was healing people but realised that a lot of them were living in detrimental energy.
“It can cause everything from insomnia and depression to hyperactivity and ME,” says Sandra, whose husband owns a property company.
She uses her skills on his investments and on homes and workplaces and recently turned her attention to my place.
She arrived with her written report at a time when our happy

home had been blighted by money worries, teenage strops and there had been nothing but bad news for what seemed like ages.
Plenty of negative energy then? According to Sandra it was not horrific, though some healing was required.
We had 36 per cent geopathic stress, 15 per cent geomagnetic and 49 per cent geopsychic. There are four detrimental energy lines and some negative energy from the past occupants (who divorced).
Before dowsing and healing, the energy of the house was 74 per cent.
Sandra has marked the negative energy lines on the floor plan. Places where two lines cross are especially bad and there’s one exactly where my daughter’s pillow is.
She has struggled to sleep since moving to the room.
Sandra also reports on the health of the property’s occupants. My other daughter’s sacral chakra was out of balance, which can cause digestive problems, she says. I was impressed, but realised I mentioned my daughter’s health issue on the questionnaire.
Me? My base and sacral chakras were out of balance leading to mild depression and “feeling floaty”. I can relate to this. She gives lots of advice about chanting affirmations, “re-writing your life” and taking cold showers.
I’m afraid I have forgotten to do the former and I prefer baths, so clearly I haven’t helped myself.
But the good news is Sandra
