The world is full of stress
I create and nurture a safe space where the seeds of healing can be planted.
Even birth is traumatic! Childhood is tougher than most of us realise, and by the time we’re teenagers we start to feel the weight of adult burdens. Then come the big responsibilities: home, career, relationships, and perhaps relocation.
By middle age, many people feel quite exhausted. We have little choice but to carry on. Midlife often brings a real crisis as we review our life decisions and try to change the things we don’t like.
Whatever our path through life, during the journey we need a refuge. A place to replenish our energy, a place that protects us while we rest. A place that lets us experience ourselves as a human being rather than a human doing.
For some people, this place is in nature. Some find it in the loving company of friends or family. For others, it’s just a quiet place within ourselves that we can visit any time we need to.
I call this place the healing zone
My aim is to provide a space where my clients can reconnect with themselves deeply and effectively.
Although my work is not about a quick-fix, let’s face it – if we can rapidly connect with our natural healing resources, why not? It’s not just about saving time and money through better health. It’s also about being true to ourselves. Circumstances and other people often pull us off balance and the result may be illness or depression. Professional care can help us get back on our feet.
The inner resources we discover at such times will stand us in good stead for the future, too.
In the healing zone, you can find new ways to support your own health naturally.
I’m a registered provider of Trauma and Tension Release Exercise (TRE®) and have extensive counselling experience. I also hold a master’s degree in psychology. I help my clients to become comfortable with their nervous systems and to regulate their emotions and stress better.
I create and nurture a safe space where the seeds of healing can be planted. This healing space already exists inside each of us, but sometimes we need to take a moment out of our busy schedules to connect with it.
When you shut down emotion, you’re also affecting your immune system, your nervous system. So the repression of emotion, which is a survival strategy, then becomes a source of physical illness later on.
