Tina Deas - A Time For You, Reiki And Counselling Swindon
My name is Tina Deas and I am a therapist at A Time For You, Reiki and Counselling, Swindon. When you come to see me at A Time For You Reik & Counselling, you can benefit from 1 hour or 1.5 hour sessions of Reiki and/or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Both of these therapies can be combined together in a session (time permitting) or if it is appropriate they can be combined with the other therapies that I offer which are counselling/coaching and hypnotherapy.
By integrating and combining these therapies together, I have developed my own unique and effective holistic approach to working with the mind/body in order to help you to heal from any past and present issues and difficulties.
Both Reiki and EFT work with our energy bodies. They both help to release stored emotions and sensations on an energy level which enables our own life force energy to flow better, thereby improving our overall sense of wellbeing.
We all generate emotional memories from our experiences. Negative experiences or traumas that we suffer in our lives together with the feelings that they generated can get "stuck" in our energetic systems. This causes an energetic disturbance which blocks our energy from flowing freely around our body. Blockages to our energy system can affect us mentally and emotionally and impact on us physically so Reiki and EFT help to unblock our energy flow. I will explain below what to expect.
Your Reiki treatment will be given to you in a softly lit, relaxing and ambient atmosphere during which you lie down fully clothed on a therapy couch and are covered over with a soft blanket. I will gently place my hands in a series of positions on your body especially over the areas where your energy centres or "chakras" are situated to re-balance them thereby freeing the movement of your own life force energy.
As the Reiki energy flows from my hands into you, you will feel more and more relaxed and will usually feel the warmth from my hands in the areas that are being treated. People find Reiki treatments both an enjoyable and a very relaxing experience and report that they leave feeling calm yet more energised and refreshed with an improved feeling of wellbeing. Reiki works in conjunction with all medical treatments to relieve side effects.
EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT has been described as Acupuncture without the needles. An acupuncurist unblocks trapped energy along a meridian line by inserting a fine needle into the skin whereas an EFT uses gentle tapping on the meridian points. This gives the entire energy system an overhaul, enabling our energies to flow freely again and improving wellbeing every time it is used.
During the session we will work together to identify the issue that you wish to work on and I will spend some time helping you to identify the thoughts and feelings that it causes and establish what needs to be cleared.
I will tap gently but firmly with the finger tips on or near the end points of the meridians in a specific sequence. As we work through the tapping positions you may experience a range of physical indications that there is an energy shift going on such as a need to sigh, yawn, your tummy rumbling or a feeling of sleepiness or lightheadiness. Alternatively you may experience some emotional indications such as a feeling of relief or calmness.
Depending on the depth of the problem and if new feelings surface about the same issue, we may need to repeat EFT until the feelings resolve. Time permitting, I like to finish off the session with some Reiki energy healing in order to recharge and balance your energy system.
EFT takes away the pain of negative emotions but leaves insights and memories.
Perhaps one of the most amazing effects of EFT is the speed with which emotional distress can be resolved, sometimes in little more than minutes, creating freedom from emotional problems or issues that might have troubled us for years.
What Can Reiki and EFT help with?
Anxiety, panic, stress, tiredness, sleeping difficulties, overall wellbeing, negative feelings such as anger, resentment, guilt etc and much more.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an experienced Reiki Master/Teacher and Practitioner and a member of the CThA. I am also a BACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist with 10 years experience in various settings, as well as a qualified Hypnotherapist registered with the GHSC, an AAMET Certified EFT Practitioner and an INLPTA Certified NLP Practitioner.
I am the owner of A Time For You, Reiki and Counselling which is based in my therapy room in west Swindon, Wiltshire. I set up A Time For You, Reiki and Counselling in 2008 as I wanted to offer my clients a more holistic approach to healing than the traditional counselling services offered in the area.
I had already been working successfully as a counsellor when I undertook my initial Reiki training in 2008. This was initially for myself to get some relief from constant neck pain as medical and other complementary treatment had been unsuccessful over a number of years. I had been holding on to emotional pain which was blocking my energy flow and causing my physical pain. By self healing with Reiki this emotional pain was released, my energy flow improved and my neck got better and still remains pain free today. This strengthened my belief that our body, mind, and emotions are an interconnected system and that by integrating Reiki into my counselling work would greatly benefit my clients.
As this has proved to be very successful, I have since continued to train further and I am now in the unique position of also being able offer EFT and Hypnotherapy.
I feel that like any stand-alone therapy, counselling has its limitations and whilst it is at the heart of all of the work that I do with my clients I am very pleased to be able to offer them my own my unique holisitic therapeutic approach to healing.

I can offer you 1:1 Counselling, Psychotherapy, CBT, NLP, Coaching, Couple Counselling, Telephone Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Matrix Reimprinting (with EFT).

"Reiki is like a massage for the soul”
"I came to see Tina at a time in my life when I was feeling so dogged by past experiences, so anxious and confused about how I felt and thought about everything that had happened and what was happening in my life. I had no experience of Counselling or Reiki and little knowledge but no experience of Emotional Freedom Technique. I was completely blown away by how amazing my experience of receiving Reiki was over the following months. Tina gave me a completely personal programme of healing combining Counselling, Reiki, Life Coaching and EFT. We tackled my low self esteem, my issues in relationships, my issues with food; anything and everything about me was completely reset so I came out of it the same person, feeling so much better about myself, stronger in every way, more clear thinking, more grounded and happier in my skin after what, to be honest, was years of torment. We dealt with the very sensitive issue of sexual abuse in childhood which I had never spoken about and with Matrix Reimprinting Tina was able to free me from these experiences and now, even months on, I feel the benefits of having spent time with Tina. I cannot recommend her more highly. She saved my sanity! She is an angel and truly gifted".(Julianne)
"I have been attending Reiki sessions with Tina for over a year now and can categorically say I have become a different person in that time. Initially I went for a physical ailment yet talking to Tina sorted out my mind as well as my body. The positive effect of the combination of physical and mental healing can’t be underestimated and I would recommend it to anyone. I really look forward to every session. Cheers, Tina!"(Ali)

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES REIKI WORK?
Reiki works mainly on balancing the 7 major energy centres within the body, called chakras. Chakras are spinning vortexes of energy which draw in the energy from our energy fields (the aura) and are responsible for storing, regulating and distributing our vital life force energy or Ki to our organs and physical bodies.
When Reiki energy is channelled through my hands to you, it gently unblocks the disturbances to your Ki energy flow. This helps to release past distress and enables vital Ki energy to flow more freely through you so that you feel better.
Scientific research has shown that Reiki’s healing energy regulates injury, repair and recovery as well as system rebalance and the recipient's brainwaves move into the “alpha” sate (characteristic of a meditative state) which
HOW DOES EFT WORK?
Emotional Freedom Technique called EFT uses the energetic pathways through the body called the meridians. Meridians are like a railway system which channel our vital life force energy or "Ki" to the organs and tissues of our physical body and relay information to the entire energy system. The energy within each meridian also registers emotions and sensations. By tapping on the meridians it releases the negative emotions that have been stored there. EFT takes away the pain of negative emotions but leaves insights and memories.
Perhaps one of the most amazing effects of EFT is the speed with which emotional distress can be resolved, sometimes in little more than minutes, creating freedom from emotional problems or issues that might have

WHY WOULD I HAVE REIKI?
You could come for a Reiki treatment because you are feeling tired and drained and could do with an energy boost or purely because you want to escape, unwind and relax and treat yourself to some "me" time or you could come for help with specific issues or problems such as anxiety, depression and stress or if you are upset or worried about something in particular or maybe are feeling a bit stuck in your life but not sure how to move forward.
WHY WOULD I HAVE EFT?
EFT is a great way to free up negative emotions that we find that we are holding on to - perhaps deeply held anger or guilt or resentment that we are finding hard to let go of.

WHAT OTHER THERAPIES COMBINE WITH REIKI AND EFT?
Reiki combines well with EFT, talking therapy and hypnotherapy. When you have a Reiki treatment you will feel relaxed and calm and safe to talk about anything that is bothering you. Alternatively Reiki can be offered towards the end of your session of talking or EFT (time permitting) so that you leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.
