About

Katy Theakston is a witch, healer, alchemist, coach, community-builder, transformer, swearer, magic-maker.

I am Katy Theakston. I am a modern witch whose life mission is to help women rise…to heal, to release and to awaken the full potential of the wild woman inside.  I empower women to discover and embrace all aspects of their authentic selves – warts and all - to bring in a renewed sense of energy and life-force. I show them how to flourish and live in flow.

If the term Witch makes your toes curl, simply look at it as a woman in total control of herself. And that’s not a buttoned up “perfect” version of a woman – it’s the authentic women, the wild women, the women that knows all her sides and learns to sit comfortably with them. The you that knows when to rest, the you that knows when to take action, the you that knows your shadow side, the you that celebrates your light.

I founded The Owl & The Apothecary to be a home of modern witchery. Working with ancient rituals and modern-day practices, everything that I offer flows from my founding principle of empowering women to make positive change.  

Whether it’s a 1-2-1, workshop, retreat or one of our wonderfully witchy gifts from our shop, I want your The Owl & The Apothecary experience to be one of ritual, positivity and awakening.

MY STORY
Corporate job. Heartbreak. Burn-Out. Solo IVF & motherhood. Being caught up in a negative cycle of masculine energy, feeling totally drained and a little lost. Unable to access or understand my soul’s desire. I’ve been there. I myself have experienced many of the things that you may be going through. But with the right guidance and a little bit of witchy work, I have come out of the other side; I un-stuck myself and now my life’s mission is to help you do the same.

It was when I started researching natural ways that I could help myself that I reconnected to my inner witch.  I remembered the fierce, fiery yet feminine force within me and I fully leaned into her and rediscovered the healing gifts I have to help others transform. 

Fast forward five years, I live now contently with my son in the wilds of Dorset, I have built a successful business and I am only just getting started.

I have created The Owl & The Apothecary as a home to empower transformation, combining my witchy intuition with a no-nonsense, practical approach. I offer you my experience, integrity, insight, mentorship and warmth to help navigate you through your own personal awakening. I have found my purpose – to help you find what lights you up.

In a safe and loving space, I will show you how to slow down, to listen to the natural rhythms and cycles of the year, to learn to trust the fierce and feminine rising in your soul and to live your best & most brilliant life. And have a little fun along the way – it’s not all Kilner jars & spiders legs!

WHY THE OWL & THE APOTHECARY?
The Owl is the harbinger of change and transformation. She represents ancient wisdom, the divine feminine, the energies of the moon, rich intuition & magic. The Apothecary is the set of tools to help access all aspects of the divine. The Owl & The Apothecary signals the dusk and the twilight of your life. The shadows, the light and the dark. Finding a way to lean into & love all those elements of yourself.

A warm & hearty hello from me – I do hope you find something that calls to you and inspires you on your journey.

Love & twigs
Katy

 

 

A LITTLE BIT OF MAGIC

"I light the Wellbeing Crystal Candle every time I have one of those exhausted end-of-day baths, and the gentle scent immediately makes me feel relaxed. Fifteen minutes later I'm all recalibrated and centred."
