Clinical Supervision & Group Supervision
Indian Head Massage
Counselling experience: I trained with Relate in Leicester in 2001 working with individuals, couples and young people. I work with a person centred approach and I integrate this with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) and Psychodynamic theory.
I have worked in Schools and Colleges for a number of years counselling young people and teenagers and facilitating groups and workshops on wellbeing, mindfulness and relaxation. I also work with young people with special needs.
In my experience there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. Each person is a unique individual and I tailor counselling techniques to meet the client’s individual needs and personal circumstances. Please visit the Counselling page for more information.
Clinical Supervision & Group Supervision: I am studying the Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Clinical Supervision and while in training I am offering supervision at a reduced fee. Please visit the Supervision page for more information or you can ring me for a free 20 minute telephone consultation. See this supervision page for more details.
Aromatherapy: I qualified in Aromatherapy massage in 2001. Aromatherapy is massage therapy with essential oils added to the massage oil or lotion. Some of the health benefits of aromatherapy include its ability to reduce anxiety, ease depression, strengthen the immune system, reduce pain, improve digestion and increase circulation. If you would like to read more please visit the Aromatherapy page.
Reiki: I began my Reiki training in 1998 and I achieved my Reiki Master Level III Degree in November 2018. Reiki is a healing technique that works with the Universal Life Force Energy and is a form of energy rebalancing to aid our body’s own healing process. Reiki can promote a sense of wellbeing and relaxation. I offer Reiki treatments to suit the client regarding length of treatment and focus. Visit the Reiki page to find out more. There is a short video on the benefits of Reiki.
Reflexology: I completed my Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology in October 2019. Reflexology has an ability to stimulate nerve functions that help your body increase your energy levels, circulation, central nervous system, prevent migraines, clear urinary infections, sleep disorders and depression. Please visit the Reflexology page to find out more.
Indian Head Massage: I completed my Level 3 Certificate in Indian Head Massage in October 2020. Indian Head Massage is an Ayurvedic system of healing which was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. The treatment can be given laying down or seated, with or without oils and with or without clothing therefore it offers flexibility for the client. The massage focuses on the upper back, arms, neck, shoulders and head plus the facial area. The treatment uses a variety of techniques and pressures that work towards alleviating tension, muscle fatigue, headaches and also works with the lymphatic system within the body to support the immune system and encourage healing therefore promoting balance, relaxation and overall wellbeing.
I work holistically which means to consider the whole person; their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. In my experience our mindset, how we think, affects how we feel and our mental and emotional wellbeing affects our physical health and vice versa.
Quote: "We cannot be happy if we expect to live all the time at the highest peak of intensity. Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony" Written by Thomas Merton 1955 (Author of 'No Man is an Island')
