About me

The Natural Path to Radiant Health
Helen Goodman-Payne

I am a Bereavement & General counsellor and offer six-week block sessions.
I explore issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety, bereavement and separation, and any other general issues.

I give Holistic/Swedish Massages, Indian Head Massage and Aromatherapy. I offer Reiki (natural healing)
 I believe that touch can have a powerful effect on everyone and can promote our own healing and sense of well-being. I use oils blended to the individual's requirement, completing a consultation form during the initial session.

I am also a yoga teacher and run classes for general yoga at Stowford Community Centre in Sidmouth on a Monday 10.30-12.00 and a more gentle class in Newton Poppleford village hall on a Tuesday 10.30-12.00. 

I am running meditation groups on the second Sunday of every month 3.00-4.00 using a number of tools such as breathing, meditation, readings, relaxation, colour, crystals and aromatherapy.

I am keen to start a Yoga Nidra relaxation group and would welcome any enquiries.

I am also trained in Shakti Dance (the yoga of Dance) which you can see on my web site:  wwwradianthealth.co.uk which I envisage running every three months with the change of the seasons.

I also hold small classes and individual sessions in my home studio in Newton Poppleford.  Please contact me for an appointment for therapy of to book a space in one of my yoga classes or to discuss having an individual yoga session.  radianthealth@taltalk.net or tel:  01395 567096.
