Living with Aspergers Syndrome presents daily challenges, however, local Aspergers sufferer, Sam Jamieson, is proving to be a true inspiration, demonstrating that with dedication and commitment, there is a way to manage and overcome these challenges, to enjoy a happy and fulfilled life.
Sam Jamieson is a Reiki Master and Teacher living just outside Hartley Wintney, providing Reiki healing treatments to children and animals.
‘My journey started with the condition that I have had all my life called Aspergers. This is a communication disorder, which makes it hard for me to express my true sensitivity and for my caring nature to be fully understood in some adult relationships. On the other hand it allows me to relate to both animals and children at a deeper level of understanding. It is rewarding to know that my Reiki techniques have helped an animal or child to find relief and peace in a non-verbal environment, and for them to find balance within the healing energy.’
‘I was trained as a Reiki Master over a 3 year period by Suzanne Cambray at Journey to the Heart and Soul, using the Usui method pioneered by the founder of Reiki, Dr Usui. I am also gaining a deeper understanding of animals and animal communication by working with one of the UK’s leading Animal Communicators, James French, the founder of the Trust Technique for animal communication. ‘
‘This year I have set up my new business, Tots and Tails Reiki and am really looking forward to building myself a future. In Reiki I have found a peaceful vocation which can provide me with personal satisfaction and more importantly healing for animals and people. ‘
Reiki complements and supports all other healing therapies and is a valuable part of a combined approach to healing and health maintenance. Conditions that can be helped with a course of Reiki healing include stress, anxiety, ADHD, Autism and Asthma, and for animals, Reiki healing can help treat behaviour issues and is effective to relieve pain and stress.

Odiham's new Post Office including incorporating Charlie's Barbers opened, officially, in November 2012. Although many of the Odiham community have probably already visited, especially over the festive season it's important to remember that if, as a community, we don't use and support our local business and retailers we run the risk of losing the services and seeing the closure of more shops in the New Year.
Sub postmaster Kevin Malloy also runs the Hook post office and invited Mark Lanchbery to officially open the new post office.
Support our local retailers - use them or lose them.
For the first time ever I visited the Basingstoke Canal at Odiham to fish
between the Colt Hill Bridge and Broad Oak Bridge. Somehow I managed to
leave behind my big green shoulder bag that contained my unhooking mat,
scales and two boxes of lures behind I believe just past the bypass bridge.
When I returned to try and find it, it had gone. A reward is offered for
its return. Many thanks.
