Born and raised in Brazil, Andréa Ararê combines her healing gifts with the knowledge of native healing rituals, Somatic Therapy, and a wealth of feminine empowerment tools. Initiated in shamanic practices three decades ago, Andréa has been creating beautiful ceremonial spaces, bespoke healing sessions, and courses for over 10 years.
Tattler magazine called her work "Life-changing".
I am a shamanic practitioner and healer with more than 10 years of experience in healing practices.
I create safe group spaces for healing, awareness, empowerment, and higher levels of consciousness, leading ceremonies for women, currently in London.
In individual healing sessions, I use tools and techniques learned over the past 30 years, and I combine complementary modalities of healing. I have been successfully combining shamanic healing with somatic therapy with a long list of positive results.
I offer individual healing and therapeutical sessions, Women's Circles, online Moon Ceremonies, and I teach women to reconnect with their feminine wisdom in order to help them rediscover their power to heal themselves.
Andrea (BSE, LMT, EMDR practitioner) began her professional life working as an electrical engineer, which gave her strong problem-solving skills and a sharp eye for identifying patterns. At the same time, she became an advanced massage therapist and completed a full year of experience working in a public hospital in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Her spiritual journey started in her teens, and by age 20 Andrea had been initiated into shamanic practices. Her shamanic experience gives her great strength and insight to work with ancestral trauma, which is one of her specialties.
Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition and a way to honor and connect with nature and reconnect with the self. Through studies and practices, I developed an understanding of honoring nature’s intrinsic wisdom and human’s natural ability to heal.
During my initiation into Shamanism, I was given the name Ararê - a friend of parrots. I've always had a deep love of and interest in nature and spirituality, and Shamanism encompasses this perfect combination.

I trained and was initiated in Shamanic practices by Rogério Mariani aka Bari Meri from Brazil, and still have many wonderful teachers and mentors, including author Serena Bertran from England, birth keeper Susana Tapia Léon from Ecuador, author Itzhak Beery from Israel, Shamanic teacher Carlos Sauer from Brazil, and midwife and author Jane Hardwicke Collings from Australia.
I am also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in training. Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) is a naturalistic and neurobiological approach to healing trauma and other stress-related disorders, using clinical tools to resolve some physiological states.
