Services offered


Counselling or ‘talking therapies’ allow people to discuss their problems or difficult feelings in a safe and confidential environment. It's a process that people begin when they want to change something in their lives, or simply to explore their thoughts and feelings in more depth.

A counsellor is not there to tell you what to do, but instead, encourage you to talk about what's troubling you. The sessions will be aimed at helping you overcome your problems and recognising appropriate changes that may be needed to live to your full potential.


Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy that utilises hypnosis to produce a state of focused attention. In this state a client can turn their focus inward to find and use the natural resources deep within themselves. Hypnotherapy can help to make positive changes gaining control over thoughts and behaviours.

Hypnotherapy focuses on the subconscious mind unlike counselling which works with the conscious mind.

Ayurvedic Massage

Ayurvedic massage is one key part of ayurvedic therapy. It results in a profound art of balancing the body and mind through mindful awareness and touch by the practitioner. The calm approach and the relaxed state during massage can improve disturbed sleeping patterns and provides a general sense of wellbeing. This therapy can oppose the effects of everyday stress and strain on the body and mind. In addition, the massage is given in stillness, meaning the massage therapist will be quiet and music will only be played.


Emotional Freedom Technique is one of the new ‘Energy Psychologies’ and is rooted in the ancient Chinese meridian energy system. EFT is based on the discovery theory that all negative emotions are the result of disruptions in the body’s energy system. EFT relieves symptoms by tapping various body points as we tune into, or focus on the problem. This tapping balances energy meridians that have become disrupted when we think about or experience an emotionally disturbing circumstance. Once balanced, the upset is usually resolved – the memory stays but the emotional charge is gone.

BrainWorking Recursive Therapy

‘BWRT®’ stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®’, a modern model of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI. It uses a totally logical, practical and down-to-earth working method in which it’s not necessary for you to talk about anything you would rather not discuss – the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is unlike any other therapy you might have heard of or read about, using the latest discoveries in neuroscience coupled with your own unique brain processes to help you get better. Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at Please request to speak to our specialist Brad Mace.

Moving - A personal blog by Sinead Withers


It’s a strange feeling when you find that you have suddenly arrived in your future. This unsettling thought entered my head as I was driving home from my mum’s house last Friday evening.

Understanding the science of EFT by Brad Mace


Having worked with EFT for many years now I often find that many clients, when first introduced to the process, tend to be wary that it is an ‘out there hippy therapy’.

On Happiness


I attended a course recently called Essentials of CBT ( Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). It was a very informative course and I learnt a great deal that I hope I can put to use, when appropriate, in my counselling practice.

Professional, compassionate, insightful, kind and enormously beneficial. I can't recommend highly enough if you need assistance untangling issues or yourself, if you want to be more self aware or gain some clarity in a safe space. Thank you so much

Ruth Client

I would highly recommend Lynn, I have had hypnotherapy sessions and she is great, so professional and experienced in her field. I instantly felt at ease and comfortable when meeting her.

Jodie Client

I was unsure if therapy was going to work for me but as soon as I spoke with Zoe on the phone I felt like I had made the right decision. She made me feel at ease when I needed it the most. Our face to face sessions in a safe, comfortable space have been so helpful and I don't know how I would have managed without the care and support throughout my recent difficulties. Thank you for everything Zoe
