I AM Yvonne J Douglas aka The Starseed Alkhemist, best selling author of Journey of a Starseed and author of three more titles including Hungry for Love. I have been featured in the Daily Mail as well as various magazines. I won the best coach category at the Ebony Business Recognition Awards and recognised as a top counsellor by the, Worldwide Who’s Who. In addition, I have been featured for my work by the Swanilenga Group Ltd and the Black 100+ legacy book. In my time I have been interviewed by BBC Radio London, Conscious FM and various other radio stations. I am a holistic counsellor, soul coach, shamanic practitioner and sacred celebrant. I am a visionary leading the way for all to heal their wounds of the human conditions in order that they feel comfortable with calling themselves the goddess and gods that they are. I AM Goddess, I AM THAT, I AM.

A mother of two children and married I started my first episode of therapy at the age of 27 due to the sexual abuse of my daughter and the realisation that I was deeply unhappy, anxious, overweight, and constantly depressed.  This led to the breakup of my marriage and me leaving the religion I grew up in (Jehovah’s Witness). I was in therapy for 7 years exploring and uncovering the reasons why I behaved the way I did and struggled with low self-esteem; I found some peace and remarried.  However, this marriage lasted only 4 years and I ended up in rehab for food addiction and the onset of alcoholism.

Undergoing therapy and being in rehab were major turning points in my life.  I learned that my childhood was so dysfunctional which is why I suffered with anxiety, depression and addiction. A major insight was that I also had been sexually molested as a baby; addressing the addiction allowed me to remember what I had locked away securely in the limbic part of my brain. As harrowing as this was it also allowed me to liberate myself and I started to experience inner peace and released a lot of weight quite effortlessly.  Dare I say, I knew what happiness felt like.  Attending the anonymous fellowships during and after rehab helped immensely with my transformation from a woman with low self esteem to a woman who valued herself. Little did I know that the transformation had only just begun.  I left my job in the banking industry and studied to be a coach in 2008 and in 2009 I went to university and studied to become a counsellor; ending up with a first class honours degree, something I never believed I would be able to achieve prior to rehab.

In 2011 I started my own business as a self employed coach and in 2012 added counsellor to my repertoire.  My evolution continued and my healing went deeper as I encountered psychics and spiritual healers along the way.  I had a huge spiritual awakening after leaving my third serious relationship with a narcissist.  I stopped running from my spiritual gifts and started to embrace them and became a sekhem energy healer, a shamanic practitioner and a sacred celebrant.

At the anonymous fellowships I heard someone say “we are spiritual beings having a human experience”; that stuck with me and has continued to be a mantra of mine and enabled me to connect deeply with my soul.  The more I removed the traumas and pain the more I had space for my soul to evolve.  I realised how the addiction was stopping me from connecting to my soul essence, the weight was being used to protect me from men and from feeling my emotions on a deeper level.  I learned that I am an empath (a highly sensitive soul).  I realised that as an empath with a huge heart and also due to my dysfunctional childhood, I became a people pleaser and was very co-dependent.  This journey of mine was one of self-discovery and one where I had to re-learn what loving myself truly meant. The journey of self-love allowed me to put myself first for the first time in my life, to value myself and be myself without apology.  All of this has enabled me to get to where I am today, living the life of my dreams and shining my unique light in this world.

I am very passionate about sharing my message because I now know and fully accept that I had to go through what I did in order to be the person I am today.  I am what they call a wounded healer.  Yes my qualifications aid me in the work that I do, however, my lived experience is far more valuable in how I facilitate healing for my clients.  Going through my healing journey has led me to living my soul’s purpose. I absolutely love what I do and it fulfills me immensely. This is what I came here to do.

I know that there are so many beautiful souls out there suffering due to what they have inherited from their family of origin and their own lived experiences and it is my honour to help these souls find the answers that are also within them as I found mine; helping them to heal their wounds so they find peace, joy and their soul’s purpose for being here.  Healing on a soul level is so profound as it also encompasses past lives allowing us to evolve in insurmountable and paranormal ways like never before, as humans.  No wound is too big or too painful to be healed, as long as you desire this for yourself and are willing to seek help you can experience life beyond your wildest dreams as I have.
