One to one talking therapy
I offer a one to one therapy program to support adults and children with PTSD, Post Natal Depression, anxiety, stress, depression, low mood, panic, fatigue, low level mental health issues, life which is out of balance, emotional issues and grief. The program consists of a minimum of six sessions (sessions are 1 hour) which are usually spaced one to two weeks apart with learning goals to complete in between sessions.
I offer a free 15 minute consultation in person or over the phone for clients who would like to know more about the program. Zoom or phone consultations and appointments can be arranged for clients that do not live locally or who cannot travel.
A copy of my book The Gateway – A journey to re-claim your power from stress and anxiety is included in the course of six sessions which are £55 per session. Sessions may include a range of techniques to “treat” the symptoms and/or discover the root of the problem. I use Western Psychology methods such as counselling, Psychotherapy techniques, Inner Child Therapy, de-constructing and prioritising values, MBSR (Mindfulness Stress Based Reduction), PTSD training and more spiritual approaches such as Three Principles Coaching, mindfulness, meditation and Bach Flower remedies.
I am a Reiki Master Teacher Practitioner and have been working in energy medicine for 20 years. Reiki addresses you as a whole, rather than targeting individual symptoms. It can create subtle but meaningful shifts from deep within your own being. On the outside looking in, a Reiki treatment might appear to be merely a series of hand placements but it works to restore balance on the deepest possible level, which may result in the resolution of some health problems, a change in beliefs and attitudes, the ability to make decision that have been put off or ignored and the realisation of one’s true values and priorities in life.
Aimed at restoring balance on all levels Reiki addresses the problem and condition rather than simply masking or relieving symptoms. It creates deep relaxation that helps the body release stress and tension bringing a sense of peace and calm whilst allows you to connect to your body as a whole and access your inner wisdom. Reiki dissolves energy blocks and encourages a natural balance between mind, body and spirit. Regular treatments help build up resilience to stress. It can also be used to heal mental or emotional wounds, alleviate panic, fear, frustration, anger, guilt and trauma. Because we spend a lot of time in fight/flight mode, Reiki reminds our physical body how to engage with our parasympathetic nervous system in order to create a calm self-healing mode which helps the body cleanse itself from toxins while aiding the immune system.
£45 per session (1 hour)
Crystal Healing Therapy
Crystals are formed by natural alignments of minerals over time and are structured in such a way that an energy field is created within and around every crystal. When a crystal enters your energy field or aura, it can change the vibrations of your aura slightly and this adds to the crystal healing properties. Crystals have a piezoelectric effect which means crystals can accumulate and hold an electric charge and respond to the electricity in the Earth’s energy field.
Crystal healing is a non-intrusive, holistic approach to wellness and stress. Crystals are usually charged or programmed and placed on or around the body. It is the energy field that emanates from the energised crystals that can heal and can be used with Reiki and Tarot (both work with energy).
£45 per session (1 hour)
Bach Flower Essences Remedies – Emotional imbalances
Bach Flower Essence remedies are powerful yet gentle healing tools that can help resolve emotional imbalances and were developed by Dr Edward Bach 1886-1936 who was a medical Doctor, bacteriologist and homeopath.
Everything in the universe vibrates, and vibrational healing is based on the concept that all life maintains its health and wellness by a universal never ending energy source. Negative thoughts and destructive emotions create blockages of this flow of energy that leads to emotional and physical imbalance. This can be helped by using flower essences which raise the vibration from the lower vibration of the human body to the higher, gentler vibrations of flowers. The human body needs to vibrate above 62 Mhz to be maintain well-being and balance.
The flower is the part of the plant’s highest energy vibration and concentration of life force and each particular flower in the Bach Flower Essence system is specifically linked to an emotion, mental or physical state.
Thoughts and feelings create a certain electrical current that travels through the body via its neural pathways creating a physical response. Research shows that every emotion and thought has its own energetic frequency and negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, shame, anger and guilt resonate at low frequencies compared to love and joy. When we don’t acknowledge strong emotions their energy doesn’t stop just because we ignore it, the electrical charges keep on looping through the neural pathways and over time cause pain, dysfunction, inflammation and disease.
When we change the frequency of an emotion it has to change and Flower Essences can help the body to relax which slows down the production of adrenalin (stress chemicals) to release endorphins (feel good chemicals). There are 38 Flower Essences plus on Rescue Remedy to address a specific range of emotional frequencies. They work by acting as a catalyst by creating rapid and powerful shifts in our mental outlook and raising our vibration. The remedies can be used on adults and children and are safe to use alongside conventional medical treatment.
Visiting a practitioner would include an in-depth consultation as our back story is an integral part of the process, talking about any goals and objectives, an explanation of how Flower Essences are made and work, how healing takes place, a diagnostic process, your own personal remedy made up for you to take away, affirmations to use and a follow up appointment.
