Counselling

Hannah Fearon-Lewis MBACP

I am a registered integrative, humanistic counsellor with particular emphasis on hannah-profie-picture-1transpersonal and person centred theory. I have 20 years’ experience of working with children and families in various settings and have a passion for working with people.

In 2010 I was moved to train as a counsellor. I was surprised at the depth of the journey I went on during my training and how transformative and creative counselling can be. Counselling can help with many issues such as, depression, anxiety, anger, abuse, bereavement and low self-esteem, to name but a few. It can also help to shine a light on the internal blocks and defences we put in place to navigate our human experience. Gaining an understanding of the self can free us up and ‘lighten the load’ so we move to being more fulfilled and self-accepting.

I aim to hold an empathic, non-judgemental space for you to be heard and a warm, curious, creative atmosphere in which we can explore whatever you want to bring. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have before booking an appointment.

Costs and Contact

  • Initial 30-minute consultation: FREE to enable us to meet and see how we might work together.
  • 55-minute session: £35

I will then spend time working with the notes I have taken to select the homeopathic remedy which is right for you. Once you begin your homeopathic treatment, you can contact me by phone or email so we can discuss how you are responding. We will usually book a review session four or five weeks after you begin treatment.

Kinesiology, Meridian Aromatherapy Massage and Rahanni Celestial Healing

Jane Collison

Hello! I’m passionate about helping people improve their health. I first studied natural health in 1995 and I haven’t stopped since. In the past, I’ve taught Aromatherapy and owned my own health food/natural remedies shop. Kinesiology has helped me so much with my own health that I just had to share it with other people. I have a Diploma in Systematic Kinesiology and I’m a member of the Association. I’m also passionate about good food. I have coeliac disease so I have a lot of knowledge and personal experience of preparing naturally gluten and grain-free meals – I’m a big fan of the Paleo diet.

Systematic Kinesiology

Kinesiology establishes a dialogue with your body through gentle muscle testing. It is a truly holistic therapy which can look at the four realms of health: structure, biochemistry, emotions and energy. With muscle testing, we can identify what your body needs within the four realms in order to return to good health. I work with and recommend essential oils, Bach flower remedies, herbal extracts and high quality nutritional supplements to create balance where it’s needed. I will probably also recommend relaxation techniques and lifestyle changes. Kinesiology can be used to indicate (and help reduce the symptoms of) allergies, intolerances and sensitivities – to foods, pollutants, etc. Please do not hesitate to email or call me to ask how kinesiology might help you.

Meridian Aromatherapy Massage

This unique therapy is both uplifting and relaxing. It balances body and mind using a combination of kinesiology energy techniques and aromatherapy massage. First, I muscle-test to select pure essential oils to balance your body’s meridians. I then blend these in a warm coconut oil mix and use gentle, soothing massage to take you into deep relaxation.

Rahanni Celestial Healing

I am attuned as a Practitioner of Rahanni. ‘Rahanni’ means ‘of one heart’, ie, there is no separation between us, we are from one divine energy source. Rahanni is a hands-on and hands-off healing which can help:

  • balance body and mind
  • release fears and negative energy
  • balance masculine and feminine aspects
  • improve communication and positivity in your life

Rahanni is not based on any religion – it works on a high vibrational level to heal deeply through balancing the heart centre. Its principles are based in truth, love and compassion, helping to change the consciousness and opening the hearts of every man, woman and child.

Costs and contact:

  • Kinesiology: first session (1.5 hours) = £75.00, Follow-ups: £50.00 (includes a flower essence remedy where needed and all the follow-up  given by email plus ongoing support by phone or email to those who need it.)

Naturopathy

Sarah Burt nd

Sarah is a fully qualified Herbalist and Nutritionist, having studied in Sydney Australia, img_1057qualifying in 1998. She has been working as a Naturopath and Iridologist for 17 years.

Iridology is thought to show us the individual constitution and can highlight the factors that lead to ill health, alert us to hidden threats, reveal weaknesses but also strengths.

By isolating the weakened areas, Sarah can advise on how to adjust diet and life style to help you make the best possible choices for your health.

Naturopathy simply means ‘nature cure’. A Naturopath works with the understanding that the body has a complete capacity to heal itself. Naturopaths are trained in many different modalities to give the body the right environment to heal itself.

It is a gentle non invasive form of healing which aims to get to the core areas where imbalance is occurring, and not just treat the symptoms. Often it is only symptoms that are treated, usually with drugs that suppress these symptoms, which means that the disease itself will simply deepen and more loudly express itself. Naturopathy helps to treat conditions before they become more serious.

Jonathan Austin

I am a Registered Osteopath, who works both privately and on the NHS. I was first interested in Osteopathy when I was treated for an injury when playing semi-professional tennis. This sparked my interest and I started my training in 2007 and went on to complete a Masters in Osteopathy. I have subsequently been amazed at the wide range of conditions it can help. I am passionate about implementing a plan for patients with acute pain and also people suffering with longer term postural-related problems.

About Osteopathy

Osteopaths are primary healthcare practitioners who primarily work with the neuro-musculoskeletal skeletal system, mostly on muscles and joints. We use a variety of hands-on techniques, including soft tissue, mobilisation and manipulation techniques. A core principle of osteopathy are the idea the body works together as a whole, not in isolation, and the body contains self healing mechanisms when there facilitation for it to do so. Relevant psycho-social factors are also considered to form part a diagnosis for the patient. It is a safe, regulated and effective method of diagnosis and treatment of many musculoskeletal complaints.

Spiritual Direction

Marj Snape

Following and exploring a profound spiritual yearning during my adult life led me to Yoga and Meditation, and two years ago I completed the Certificate in Ecumenical Spiritual Direction at the Franciscan International Study Centre in Canterbury. Spiritual Direction or accompaniment provides the opportunity to discuss privately and honestly the search for spiritual meaning in your life. Many of us question what this life is for, why we are here , do we have a soul, what happens when we die, is there a God?  We may be looking for greater depth or wholeness in our lives, or want to look at some troubling issue from a different perspective.

I can offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore these questions and also, through our mutual conversation, offer guidance on developing a deeper spiritual and inner life . I practise meditation daily and am a regular church goer but these sessions are not aligned to any specific religious or spiritual tradition. After an initial session we would normally meet every 4 – 6 weeks.
