Do you want to L!VE a happy L!FE?
Connect to YOUR inner beat & discover YOUR authentic self
Gain control of YOUR L!FE & L!VE BRAVE

The Tayo Healing Centre was founded in 1993 by Tayo Irvine Hendrix and was set up using the Tayo Method of Healing – ‘NOW’. Over the years Tayo has created many teachings all using the power of NOW. Whether using the NOW Thrive or Experience NOW it is all about living in the moment and taking ownership for all that has happened on your journey to this moment of NOW. ‘Tayo leads a ‘less ordinary’ life as a Shaman, Musician, Author and Storytelling Artist with a love of all things creative. Her mindful approach to each step of her teachings has come from life experience and many years of training and client/life study.

Her love of music and healing kicked in at just 3 years of age when she was given a shamanic drum by her father and taught how to connect that drum to her heartbeat. This passion continued into her youth and guided by her parents, Tayo learnt to play various instruments from drums, guitar to vocals and studied her passion for shamanic healing. In 1988 after the suicide of a close friend and a near death experience (NDE) for Tayo, her life took a very different path and she left music to concentrate on her healing and shamanic work.

In her late teens, Tayo’s intuitive mother encouraged her to develop a myriad of healing disciplines. Tayo has a powerful shamanic connection with the life force in all of us. After the death of her beloved mother (1995), she re-entered education and qualified as a Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Hypnotherapist. Tayo’s core belief – the mind builds the physical result.

The Tayo Healing Centre is in honour of Tayo’s beloved mother and mentor.

‘We are both teacher and pupil as we teach so shall we learn’ ~ Tayo Irvine Hendrix

Experience NOW

Experience Now teaches you the power of living in the moment of now.Experience NOW shows you how to dance to your own beat by connecting and discovering  your organic algorithm. Your inner beat is unique to you. With the modern world beating down your door constantly, changing and evolving is a required skill. This course helps you to find your  way, through the darkness and back into your own unique light. Experience NOW is a physical way to move energy blocks, get to the root of your problems and live in the moment of now. We are too often keen to look to the past to see what went wrong and look to the future to ‘hope’ for something different but if you live in the power of NOW you can truly make the difference you want to see in your life.

Connecting to your inner beat is one of the most challenging things you can do. Feel your beat. ‘L!VE BRAVE’.

Tayo is currently living in London, England and busy writing various projects. ‘The Road to Tayo’ is a Modern Arts Show (a global audience participatory event encouraging discovery and connection through arts to self love) and ‘Losing My Way Home’ (Tayo’s second book shares how arts and love saved the child within during her darkest days). To ‘Redhawk: From The Darkness Into The Light’.(a world renowned blind artist and Apache Indian who went from US Special Ops, blindness, heartache, and triumph through connecting to his inner (he)art beat through love ). Arts and love have always played a healing role in Tayo’s life NOW for the first time, we get to see why living in the moment of NOW is so important to her.

We are creations. We are here to create. Let’s create LOVE ~ Tayo

About TAYO

Tayo is a multifaceted individual who has learnt to accept and embrace all of her life experiences. She has put those along with her vast training, qualifications and knowledge, towards betterment and enrichment of other peoples’ lives.

An acclaimed shaman, musician, author and storytelling artist, she is recognised for bridging the gap between ancient healing methods and modern culture. Her passion is to provide healing for the mind, body and spirit through metaphysical growth and knowledge.

For almost 25 years Tayo has been developing a unique style of healing. The Tayo Method Programme works by treating clients from the roots. Tayo believes this was her purpose in life. ‘A shaman does not choose to be shaman. The path they walk is chosen long before they get there’. From childhood Tayo was taught about spirit, elders and the spirit world and communicated without fear.

Tayo connected with her own guides very early in life. At the age of 5 she could see, talk with her guides and share adventures. By late teens she was spirit writing and offering guidance to friends and family members. 

It was in her early twenties whilst enjoying life as a carefree musician her world changed forever. Having always felt deeply loved by her family it was hard to understand how someone could feel so alone and disconnected that suicide was their only option. Tayo withdrew from the world of music to try to find the answer and understanding. After two years she joined a healing circle and began the long walk home to peace of mind.

With so much empathy, understanding and the ability to look deeply into the soul of an individual, many people were drawn to Tayo as a healing light. Within two years she set up The ‘Tayo Healing Centre’. This programme encourages the individual to reconnect the disconnected soul and ultimately led to her studies into psychotherapy and counselling.  She went on to study hypnosis and realised that so many people went back beyond the womb during that process that Past Life Recall was a necessary part healing the current mind. Progressing further to add what Tayo called shamanic experiences to this form, she went on to create her own unique form of healing and after 3 years of clinical research now known as Memory Recall and Reflective Healing. The Tayo Method was born.

Tayo is a member of BACP, UKCP, ICHM, IMP, PHPA, SAGB and NFSH. She is experienced and qualified in: Counselling, Hypnosis, Psychotherapy, PLT (Past Life Regression), Memory Recall, Emotional Freedom Technique, Crystal Healing, Reiki, Aura Cleansing and Sacred Space Clearing, Shamanic Drumming, and Dream Interpretation and is currently studying Philosophy.

The current waiting list for a one-to-one appointment is 5 weeks and she is often in demand for sacred space clearing and spirit clearings. Tayo has performed clearings at Ground Zero in New York, USA, the site of The Marchioness riverboat disaster in London UK, and the homes of Sir VC Bird Sr, the first Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda to name a few. She does, of course, do clearings for smaller locations which can also be done on-site.

Tayo’s private practice in London, England offers healing and counselling to individuals from all lifestyles, encouraging them to live an excellent life NOW. She runs spiritual retreats at the exclusive St. James Club in Antigua and the USA. Whilst also running the ‘First Steps /NOW Thrive Programme’ in Europe.

All aspects of Tayo’s works centre on discovering and connecting to your inner beat, bringing the magic of NOW back into your life. Tayo is the mother of two children (both adults now). She founded the Tayo Irvine Hendrix Youth Foundation (TaYouth) in London, England in 2009.

A passionate musician and artist, her latest music project encourages individuals to experience LOVE and she launched her last single ‘We Shall Overcome TODAY’ in 2017 (#WSOT). It was her version of the ‘We Shall Overcome’ activist track recorded by Bob Dylan in the 60’s. Tayo’s passion in life is Mental Health and helping individuals feel strong in their mind and body.

Nobody should feel so alone and disconnected in this world that they take their own life’.

We are ONE, one spirit, one drop of an ocean. We are connected and we must learn to feel loved and safe’

~ Tayo Irvine Hendrix

I learned that I have the ability to take control of my life and achieve a potential that I previously would not even have been able to imagine. The use of cognitive mirror work was a very powerful exercise to increase self-esteem.’

~ Kieran Griffin, Director of AddisonLee

The best thing about Tayo is she manages to make you feel special whilst teaching you to value and believe in yourself and your journey. I understand the journey and the knowledge I now have is sublime. In four short months my life turned around.’

~ Simon Jones, Director of British Airways

Reflective healing

Reflective healing is a practical holistic approach to optimising health through the power of your own reflection, and awareness encouraging self-empowerment through your own image. Using the power of mirror work, we recall from memory stored programming and situations that over a life time have caused you to limit yourself and hinder your own personal growth. This programme enables you to understand and embrace these experiences, allowing personal growth at the deep end.

Cognitive mirror work is a totally personal approach to your life and connecting your inner authentic beat. Your memory stores negative experiences far quicker than positive ones and negativity is far heavier than positivity. When you are negative, you sink like a lead weight. When you are positive, you rise like the air bubble you are.

Your reflection is a mirror to the world, of how you see self. Sometimes it can be the simple image you have issues with, you cannot love what you do not see as beautiful. But often the issue is, we are taught by parents, teachers, clergy, those who have power over some part of our youth, who often themselves have issues and lack self-love. When this happens this is projected onto the individuals they are dealing with.

One can only every judge by their own yard stick and if they are in pain or do not know how to love themselves, they cannot teach us how to do something they do not know how to. Through this treatment you see the true inner beauty, becoming more beautiful than you had ever imagined possible. You learn to realise and remove this programming through memory recall. As children, we learn what we are taught. The teacher is more important than most people could ever realise. Thankfully, we are constantly learning but that choice is yours.

This treatment revolves around purification of the mind and body. Using memory recall and relaxation techniques you are able to fully embrace life and harness the body’s own natural healing powers, discovering and connecting parts of the mind that have been misaligned through negative actions or words, bringing balance and harmony into your life once more, allowing you to confidently walk to the beat of your own drum!

Memory Recall

This shamanic form of self-hypnosis was created by Tayo in 1997. By relaxing the mind into a state of complete harmony with the whole body, it is able to read every cell and see itself in its wholeness, surrounded by unconditional love, whilst being removed of all human indoctrination. You are then able to see the beauty at the very core of your being and recognise the roots of your soul, acknowledging the unique child within.

For some this child has had a wonderful journey, full of love and knowledge. For others, (s)he has suffered. The child is you, and only you can set ‘the child’ free. Memory recall connects you to each cell, remembering the sensations attached, searching for moments of truth when you have been hurt by another’s actions or words. 

Tayo takes you back to the womb and beyond, where the only sensation was warmth and you wanted for nothing. It is from this place that we do our deepest healing and it is in this space that you remain for the duration of the session. In complete safety, with Tayo, you are able to view that action with the knowledge that you are a loved and cherished human-being allowing you to see that those actions were just actions of another human-being in pain, though frightening to ‘the child within’, they do not have the power to hold you back in life any longer.

Tayo shows you how to connect with your soul and reminds you of your power to change your life, to be happy and fulfilled at last. The mind, especially the memory, is your most powerful tool. Tayo gives you the opportunity to decide whether you make it your ally or your enemy. Everything you need is within your grasp, you simply need to recall your unconditional love of self. You make the choice to L!VE BRAVE.

‘My physical fitness is very important to me. That fitness is emotional as much as physical which I found out to my detriment at the beginning of 2010. Through memory recall I was able to re-live the moment of fear. Tayo is the one who I turn to for greater perspective, she helps me to see the biggest picture, to understand my life has purpose and is more than the moment. She was my light in a dark place.’

~ Manu Adebayor.

Shaman / Consultant

Tayo is a shamanic practitioner and medium known for her exceptional skills in working with spiritual energy. A clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient, channel and empath, she has a powerful connection with the spirit world and beyond. As a shaman, Tayo functions in a fertile, supportive, positive social context, her readings are revered as a reliable source of essential wholeness, energy and power.

Tayo’s personal power is amplified by her guardian spirit ‘Niall’ along with a number of additional helpers and totem spirit animals. She walks with the black panther and carries gecko in her pocket. Tayo is recognised for bridging ancient healing methods and modern culture and has created her own powerful programme that really works for the individual.

Shaman Medium

Shamanism and Mediumship are very different – a shaman is active whereas a medium is passive. Shamanism is a ‘visionary’ tradition, of ancient times, involving the practice of altering states of consciousness. Shamanic journeying is the art of travelling to the natural worlds beyond to retrieve knowledge that help an individual make positive changes in this life. Today we are more aware of the fragile ecological balance and we are therefore more in tune with the natural world and ready to learn. It is not surprising that more people are realising the strength within the knowledge held by the elders. Shamanism sends the clear message we must respect the sanctity of the natural world before it is too late.

Shamanism involves Tayo going forth to actively seek something, and as the seeker she is fully aware of what she seeks and everything that is happening and has happened during the vision. She takes full responsibility for her actions. Where as in her role as a medium, she is receiving something from the divine spirit or force, working as a channel, passing on information given to her by spirit guides, Niall or Sam. Tayo is blessed to have both qualities. Shaman will often walk with spirit and she is privileged to walk with two such amazing spirits daily.

My spirit guides have protected me and kept me safe along my spiritual journey and I truly hope I can help you connect with yours.

~ Tayo

Emotional Freedom Therapy

EFT uses gentle acupressure to rapidly reduce pain and distress of any fixed emotional state correcting negative core beliefs, learnt behaviours and limitations. It relieves acute emotional distress and chronic problems like addictive urges, pain and depression often alleviating traumatic stress associated with the condition. Using EFT as part of the Tayo Method offers a multi-dimensional, psychological healing that bypasses the cognitive and treats problems at their source – the roots.

So how does it work? Many acupuncture meridians come together and enter the brain at specific facial acupressure points close to the eyes, which are activated during the treatment as the client gently taps and accesses the stagnant energy or emotional disturbance through creative visualisation. The combination of activating the acupressure points and the individual attention permits the brain to process the information in a clear, concise way. The memory is recalled and looked at in an unemotional way and very quickly the blockage is removed and the energy begins to flow freely, allowing the individual to feel whole and complete once again.

‘I learnt of EFT in 2005 when I attended a new workshop. I had broken part of my foot so was unsure I could attend, but decided to hobble along. It was so effective for me, removing the pain and discomfort that I immediately took to this new form of healing. It has become a part of my ‘healing toolbox’ and it would appear I am in good company too, as it is used by Jack Canfield, Joe Vitale, Cheryl Richardson, Deepak Chopra and many others including doctors, therapists and now clients too. With up to 85% of EFT users reporting life enhancing benefits it is clearly beneficial to health.’ Tayo 

Tayo Method

This is a learning tool for you to use as often or as little as you wish, where you can connect with those who will inspire and encourage you to live your best life.

Tayo can help you determine your life’s purpose. Not only will you learn to live your best life, you will learn to recognise your true potential and gain inner peace from the roots up.

I am grateful that this opportunity became available and that I took it. I learned to take control of my life and achieve a potential that I previously would not even have been able to imagine.

~ Kieran Griffin, Director of Addison Lee 

Tayo Healing Centre

The Tayo Healing Centre, based on the Kent border of London, England provides esoteric healing, counselling, coaching and more. The primary aim is to provide emotional and physical healing from the very roots of the individual. Tayo has helped many clients from all walks of life; artists to athletes and CEOs to young persons.

The Centre also facilitates patients suffering from physical conditions such as: cancer, paralysis, EDS (Ehlers Danlos Syndrome) and MS (Multiple Sclerosis). It came into being in 1997 and stands on the edge of an ancient woodland known as Lesness Woods, which itself overlooks the beautiful 12th century ruins of Lesness Abbey. These woods have the most amazing energy and Tayo can often be found working with clients in the seclusion of this wonderful environment.

I have never had such an intense healing session is such a beautiful location. The clinic is beautiful and the woods are just amazing I cannot wait to go back.

Healing Programme

It is important to have at least one appointment or attend one workshop to see if the Tayo Method is right for you. This allows you to connect with Tayo and the Healing Centre, and discover if you are truly ready to start your spiritual journey. If you cannot commit your ‘self’ for an hour or two, you should perhaps question if you are ready to commit at all…

Aspects of Healing

The emotional aspects of healing can be just as important as the physical. The mind builds the physical result. Positive thought leads to more positive action and with that, there is an excellent chance of a positive outcome.

Attitudes and emotions have a direct bearing on the success or failure of the treatment process and this can be seen in medicines, hence the placebo effect. If you maintain a positive, happy and hopeful attitude to things, whilst keeping your mind open to all possibilities and allowing the universe to support you, then you are likely to be a lot more effective than if you are filled with doubt, fear or disbelief.

Negative thoughts, along with negative attitudes and emotions (such as resentment and anger) build  a resistance that is difficult to overcome. Positive thought leads to positive action and hopefully a positive outcome.

Drum Healing

From ancient practices in Africa, the Americas and Europe, music was composed and performed with healing intent. During that time in the ‘civilised’ west, music was largely removed as a healing tool and became purely aesthetic. In more ‘primitive’ cultures music has remained an important part of healing rituals.

As a composer, healer and humanitarian Tayo is interested not only in music for entertainment value, but for it’s intrinsic healing powers above all else. Through voice, mantras, chanting, and drum we teach healing from the roots. We hope, as you share this journey with us, you will truly understand the power of music and what music can be when it is understood and applied by healer, therapist, composer and layman alike.

African and North American cultures alike believe ‘medicine’ has a much broader term than it is given when used by modern medicinal practitioners. It is a beneficent force, the universal source of wellness, completeness, unity and truth.

The human soul is ‘symphonic’ and it is this characteristic that expresses itself both in the inner accord of the soul and body and in the human music making.

~ Barbara Thornton

Emotional Therapy

Emotional Therapy combines therapies that complement each other, brought together in this unique style by Tayo to deal with emotional traumas. One-to-one counselling, along with hypnosis and psychotherapy can achieve powerful results alone. However, Tayo takes these skills and incorporates reflective healing, emotional freedom therapy and memory recall delivering an incredibly powerful healing tool. Along with ‘homework’ [including music therapy, mantras, affirmations, exercises and journal work] this bespoke healing programme facilitates self-empowerment at the deepest level.

This intensive programme of healing has taken Tayo over 20 years to perfect and is unique to Tayo Method. Everything that is holding you back is coming from within. Tayo can help you to re-programme your mind and L!VE your best L!FE.

Sacred Space Clearings

Have you walked into a room and just felt a chill, or uncomfortable, without reason? Or that feeling of being ‘watched’?

Sometimes this is spirit, who have remained ‘here’ after death. Often this is because they are worried about leaving their loved ones, they want to be close to people, places, animals, even inanimate objects. or it can be a fear what awaits them or unaware they have died or just cannot find the ‘light’. Imagine, if at the end of the day, your child couldn’t find their way home from school and people could see them distressed, but nobody tried to help them! This is somebody’s child trying to find their way ‘home’ after their ‘life lesson’, but they have lost their way.

With Niall’s help I try to guide them home safely. My role at Ground Zero was this – to help spirit prepare to leave their loved ones and move into the light and to help clear the energy that was left behind. Visualise a pebble thrown into a pond, creating ripples that last for a long time. Imagine the magnitude of Ground Zero’s pebbles, which permeate into the ground and brick work. Ground Zero will take time to completely heal, she heals a little every time a clearing is done but Mother Earth knows her baby will take time to settle again, but settle again she will.

Counselling & Coaching

Many successful people, from sports personalities to top executives, enlist coaches or mentors. Coaching starts early; children may be coached by parents or teachers, but as we grow older we lose that protection and the ability to ‘unburden’. A high percentage of ‘influential people’ have coaches, mentors or counsellors. Leaders, such as Prime Ministers and Presidents, have advisors not just because it ‘looks good’ but because they value another person’s perspective – a degree of objectivity that is often hard to find when in the thick of it. ‘Going it alone’ in life can be isolating. Coaching can broaden your thinking, allowing you to see both sides.

What Tayo offers is a much deeper insight into the best way forward on your journey. Tayo believes the individual creates the solution and the outcome, and shares with you via models, techniques, strategies and attitudes, the most effective way to achieve your goal. Her support is available through remote coaching if you are on the road/touring/working abroad or simply unable to attend the Healing Centre or London Clinic. Remote coaching is via telephone or e-mail support. Tayo can train managers as coaches and set up in-house coaching and mentoring schemes.
