We all experience difficult times in our life, whether that be loss, change, trauma or grief. Working through or moving on from these situations can be a challenge on our own. Our primitive brain want to keep us safe, and unwittingly it often keeps us stuck and locked down, emotionally.

I want you to know that it is possible to find peace again, to be in harmony with yourself once again, and find joy in life.
Having worked in the mental health sector of the NHS for over 13 years, I know that the larger proportion of focus is often around physical recovery, with little to no emphasis on emotional recovery.

These brain programs are the foundation to everything we do, how we think, what we say, and how we act. For the most part this is helpful, however, our primitive brain will continue to use information that is not reality, and no longer helpful.

Combining sensory, energy and psychotherapy techniques is both powerful and beautiful. When I started my practice I would offer talking therapy and coaching separate to Reiki, however, over the years I learnt that the healing is far more profound when they are combined. Healing mind and body sequentially.
Julie (client), came to me feeling at the end of her tether, having already tried numerous other avenues to gain control over her anxiety and anger. Psychologically, we know that feelings such as anxiety and anger are rooted in fear, however, this is rarely known to the client and often sits at a deep subconscious level. Julie’s journey was quite spectacular and I was humbled to be part of it with her.
When we take pleasure in the things that bring us joy, the things that make us laugh, smile, or sigh with heartfelt warmth, that is the simplest form of gratitude. Gratitude brings many gifts to our lives; which could be beneficial to one or more of emotional, spiritual, physical, and mental health and wellbeing.
