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.

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.

Growing Up, or our Attachment to Things


Before I had my own children, I never had any understanding of just how much a toy could embody. So much more than the material it is constituted from, be it plastic or fake fur.
