I am a Holistic Practitioner using Counselling,Touch for Health Kinesiology, EFT, Reiki/Therapeutic Touch to assist individuals with anxiety, high sensitivity, depression and other mental illnesses as well as those with day to day worries and stresses.
I have always enjoyed energy work, we are energy beings and by working with our energies we can assist the healing process
Touch for Health Kinesiology brings awareness to the body in many ways. Rather than living in our head for so much of the time we start to become aware of what the body is doing, how it is feeling and where it is imbalanced. We then use the meridian system, acupressure, massage or light touch to restore the body’s energy.
Touch for Health is a safe, gentle, non-invasive and non-diagnostic therapy that uses manual muscle testing, or muscle monitoring to determine where the client may have imbalances in their energy system. It is wellness orientated and treats the whole person – mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. It benefits the muscles and posture, organs, vascular and lymph systems, hormonal balance and mood.
What are the benefits?
Touch for Health works on the body at a very deep level it is particularly useful for releasing stress and past trauma as well as helping with the current physical and mental problems the client is experiencing. It balances posture, helps restore natural energies, improve functioning and achieving goals.
It is non-invasive and very often it is discovered that a physical problem is helped by establishing, and healing a long-buried emotional issue.
In most cases, it will be necessary to have follow-up treatments. It is generally a good idea to have at least three treatments initially. Touch for Health works subtly and on a deep level and three sessions is usually enough time to really notice the benefits.
EFT, or Energy Psychology, also uses the meridian system to stimulate and balance the energy flowing through our body. We do this by tapping on certain points and, along with a set-up statement focusing on the negative emotions that are causing you problems, relief is felt as the negative emotion disolves away. I use this and Touch for Health within my work as a counsellor to boost the energy system and bring increased awareness of the body. When our body is in balance energetically we naturally feel better in mood and outlook, as well as physically.
Having worked with people for many years I am accustomed to adapting to each individual and finding ways of helping my clients to reach their potential. I do this by working holistically and taking all aspects of their life into account. As a naturally caring and empathic person I enjoy working with people and seeing them grow by working with their emotional, physical, spiritual and energetic aspects.
I have over 13 years experience in Mental Health, both in the community and within an in-patient setting, as a support worker. I also have experience working within the NHS providing counselling within GP surgeries. This role involved supporting and encouraging individuals back into the community, working with them to identify their strengths and interests and finding meaningful activities. It is this experience that I will bring to our sessions.
How can I help?
As a holistic practioner I work with you as a whole, not just the 'problem' that you feel you have right now. My aim is to build a trusting, therapeutic relationship with you and make you feel as comfortable as possible from your first session and to assist you on your journey to where you would like to be in life. By working creatively between us we will work out a course of treatment to suit your needs.
I also hold a Diploma in Humanistic counselling with an emphasis on Gestalt. I focus on how you are feeling in the moment – here and now.
I work in a creative way; encouraging my clients to use stones, art and various 'exercises' to enable them to see themselves and their life in a different light.
