Bowen Therapy and Energy Healing

Melanie Philip – Intuitive Body Worker

As Melanie works mostly intuitively a treatment is not defined as one thing in particular but as a possible combination of Bowen Therapy alone or fused with some form of energy healing modality.
Bowen Therapy and Energy Healing is an Intuitive non-invasive bodywork which is revolutionary in its approach to ill health, it is considered a Consciousness based health care system which is grounded in the science of quantum physics and combined with reputable bodywork systems such as:

  • Bowen Therapy
  • Soft tissue release
  • Yoga, Breathwork and Meditation
  • TRE – (Tension, Trauma & Release Technique)
  • Energy Healing Modalities
  • Neuromuscular Biofeedback
  • (Kinesiology)
  • Chinese Medicine
  • Nutrition

What does it mean to take a holistic approach to your Health?

A holistic intuitive approach is comprehensive and considers & addresses all factors that may contribute to ill health & imbalance & not just the symptoms and diagnosis. Some examples of this may include different systems and functions within your body such as:

  • Musculoskeletal/Connective Tissue
  • The Organs, Endocrine, Circulation, Immune and Nervous system
  • Body Chemistry and Toxins
  • The Energy system
  • Meridians, Chakra
  • How the external environment may be affecting you – Emotional/ mental health states

I have been a Bowen therapist and Hatha Yoga Teacher for 8 years and over this time, mostly through my own healing journey, professional experience, sensitivities and personal fascination with quantum physics I have learned that we actually do have quite a few other bodies besides this physical one!.

This realisation took me on a journey to learn several Energy healing modalities like Quantum touch – Matrix energetics – Donna Eden Energy Medicine , Caroline Myss, TRE (Tension Trauma & Release technique),  Emotion/Body Code and most recently Body Talk.

 And so now my treatments have organically become more intuitive in nature, fused with Body and energy work as we aim to move closer into alignment with what your Body needs right now to be balanced as opposed to what I’ or you’ think it needs. This way we can honour your own bodies innate wisdom to heal itself and to reveal its own truth.

I work in a simple, efficient and gentle way and most conditions known or unknown can be addressed.If you would like to speak in confidence with me to know if how I work could be of help to you please don’t hesitate to contact me via any of the ways below.

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

Counselling & Psychotherapy

Helen Burdette BSc (Hons) Psych, MPNLPt, EHPt, BSYA(Th)

I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor and have been in private practice for 19 smaller photoyears. I also have 17 years experience working as a Senior Counsellor within the NHS Improving Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) service before I left in 2018 to fully focus on my private practice. I am also a Wellbeing Consultant for a local charity and I am a clinical mentor for local professionals.

I am an integrative and person-centred therapist. I am very sensitive to the unique needs of each client and adapt my work practice to achieve the best results for each client. I use a range of techniques helping clients to gain understanding and make appropriate changes in their life. The client is always in control of their therapeutic journey and can engage in therapy for as little or as long as they want to. I will always advise on this if asked. I believe that deep and lasting healing comes from addressing both the cognitive or ‘mind’ aspects of the self, along with the physical expression and experience of a person’s emotions. I work systemically and holistically to re-balance and reconnect the mind and body; this may include relaxation and breathing techniques, mindfulness and aspects of yoga therapy (Please note, this is not yoga asanas or ‘poses’).

As well as helping people to overcome loss, bereavement, anxiety and depression, childhood trauma and relationships issues, I have a particular interest in helping people with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (M.E.), highly sensitive people and empaths. I believe in ethical, compassionate therapy and I honour people as unique individuals with their own experience of their world. We will work together in a safe, non-judgemental and empathic relationship to help enable you to find your way forward. I firmly believe in the connection between mind and body and, in my practice, I work with both these aspects to enable the client to regain balance and wellness within themselves.

Costs and Contact

  • Initial 30-minute assessment appointment to discuss your needs and establish your outcomes: £30.00
  • Cost: £45 per 50 minute session

Zofia is not working face to face at present

I have been a practising homeopath since 1985, and have also contributed to the development of the homeopathy profession in the UK and Europe for 23 years. I’m currently Vice Chair of the European Central Council of Homeopaths, working with colleagues across Europe to ensure patients have access to high quality homeopathy.

I came to homeopathy through seeing it work quickly on my children when they were young, and love working with children who usually respond quickly to homeopathy.

When you come for treatment, I will take a full case in order to get a full picture of how your ‘unwellness’ is affecting you. You will have the opportunity to tell me exactly how you feel and how you experience what is out of balance in your life. A first consultation will last an hour to an hour and a half. 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 see how you are responding. We will usually book a review session four or five weeks after you begin treatment.

Training, qualifications & experience:

  • BHom Med, Northern College of Homeopathic Medicine. 1985
  • RSHom, Society of Homeopaths. 1990

Kinesiology, Meridian Aromatherapy Massage and Rahanni Celestial Healing

Jane Collison

Jane  is not working face to face at present

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 looks into the four realms of health: structure, biochemistry, emotions and energy. With muscle testing, we can identify what your body needs 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 diet and lifestyle changes, as well as relaxation technique. Kinesiology can also be used to detect 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)
  • Meridian Aromatherapy Massage (1 hour): £40
  • Rahanni Celestial Healing (1 hour): £35; £90 to block-book 3 sessions

Naturopathy and Iridology

Sarah Burt nd

Sarah is not working face to face at present

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.

Reflexology

Rebecca Shalts

Rebecca is not working face to face at present

I’ve have always been fascinated by natural and alternative therapies and I decided to retrain as a Reflexologist in 2005 after experiencing the benefits of the treatment personally.

I’m fully qualified and insured through the Association of Reflexologists to treat general and Maternity reflexology.

Reflexology is a non invasive complementary therapy which aims to optimise both emotional and physical health. It works by applying pressure to specific reflex points found in the feet and hands,which correspond to all the various parts of the body. Reflexologists work holistically, treating the body as a whole and not just the symptoms. It can benefit people of all ages, and depending on the length of time a condition has been present, it can improve or eliminate many ailments over a four – six week course of treatments.

Treatments will usually take around an hour, with an initial session taking an hour and a half, as a full medical history will be taken to identify any current areas of concern and your treatment needs.

Reflexology is a very relaxing treatment to receive.

Costs and Contact
  • Cost: £35  for 1 hour treatment (children £20)
