I offer eco therapy at my practice in Market Lavington. We will discuss on our initial therapeutic counselling session if this would be an option for you.
What is Eco Therapy?
The counselling room is a great place to be, but the therapeutic counselling process can be experienced outside. The outdoor space becomes a living environment, and adds another dimension to therapy. It provides a neutral space for us to work and to develop the therapeutic relationship. Observations about the surroundings, weather conditions can be valuable additions and enrichment of your own journey.

I offer mediation sessions at my practice in Market Lavington.
What is meditation?
Meditation helps you to recognise your own thoughts and anxiety , and enables you to deal with adverse feelings earlier, building self-confidence and self-esteem, and ability to cope with stressful situations. Meditation is about enjoying the moment and to see yourself in a kind and positive way.
Learning techniques that can be used for a short time each day can help to introduce calmness into your life, reducing the body’s signs of stress such as high blood pressure, feelings of panic, shortness of breathe and so on. Meditation promotes a holistic feeling of well-being for both mind and body.
What happens in a session?
We will check your posture and focus on your breath to start with to calm your mind- and to slow down a ‘busy’ brain. We will work through the body releasing tension, aiming for a deep sense of peace and relaxation. We will spend some tome on relaxing each part of the body in turn, focusing on breathing techniques. You will be guided through a mediation scene, such as walking through a garden to help you to mentally relax and to bring about a sense of calm, like a daydream. We all have a special place to remember where we felt happy and relaxed.
Meditation can help to:
- Reduce anxiety
- Balance mind, body and soul
- Promote self-healing
Stressful situations such as a visit to the dentist, sitting in traffic jams etc can be managed in a calmer way with meditation techniques, enabling you to keep your cool when under pressure! Performance anxiety, such as making a speech or taking part in a competition can be significantly reduced with meditative techniques.
Sessions cost £40 (50 minutes) individual, or share with a friend.
Do you find yourself trying so hard to get something right that you become tense and frustrated with yourself? You may be so desperate to lose weight/ get fitter/ be better, for example, that you lose sight of being self-aware and doing what is best for you.
I offer Reiki at my practice in Market Lavington.
What is Reiki?
Reiki (Universal life force energy) is an ancient technique, re-discovered by Dr Mikao Usui a Japanese theologian, in the 19th century. It is used to provide that extra boost for the body, promoting the flow of energy helping the body heal itself naturally.
During a treatment, I will channel this energy through my hands and use it to rebalance the chakras, or energy centres.
What happens in a session?
Reiki is a non-invasive, complementary therapy using the energy that flows through all living things, which Eastern medicine has worked with for thousands of years. You will be fully clothed lying on a couch or sitting on a chair. I will place my hands just above or lightly touch, different areas, concentrating on where the energy is most needed.
Your body will take as much energy as it requires. It has the ability to heal itself, but sometimes this healing process becomes weak, or blocked. Your energy can be affected by stress, anxiety, life events, or illness. Reiki helps to bring balance to your mind, body and soul, encouraging deep relaxation, promoting self-healing.
I offer Reiki as a one-off session, or combined with counselling sessions.
Reiki can help with (for example):
- Anxiety and Stress
- Poor circulation
- Balancing emotion
- Immune system
- Respiratory issues
- Skin problems

Mindfulness in Market Lavington
I offer mindfulness in Market Lavington.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is about being able to
stay ‘in the moment’- to still a busy mind. It promotes calmness and concentration either with calming exercise, or being still. It is about being present with what is going right now for you- being aware of your surroundings, how you are feeling, focusing on yourself. It could be as simple as making a cup of tea, and focusing calmly on what you are doing right now rather than thinking about what you will do next, your shopping list, where you have to go in a while, and so on.
In a session, we will focus on your self-awareness- noticing your posture, breathing, and what your thoughts are. We will gradually focus on the present, what is happening right now, using mindfulness techniques.
Here is a short video about mindfulness in schools from the BBC London Facebook page.
