Techniques & Therapies

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Would you like to be more confident?  Do you have a difficult relationship with someone you can’t avoid and need to be able to deal with them in a more positive way? Would you like to be able to see chocolate or crisps and not be desperate to eat them?    Is your life limited by a fear or phobia?

It’s possible to change how you think and feel about things simply and quickly by using various NLP techniques. 

Everyone has something they would like to change or improve in their lives.  What would you like to change?



Do you want to just lie back and experience a comfortable relaxed state while I help you to make the changes in your life that you want, whether that is losing weight, stopping smoking or something else?

Hypnosis is a natural state where you feel increasing levels of relaxation and are able to focus all your attention on the voice of the hypnotherapist and the suggestions that are made.  You always remain in control and will only accept the suggestions that are consistent with your own values and beliefs. 

Time Line Therapy™

Do you often feel angry and lose your temper?  Do you get palpitations and a churning stomach just at the thought of something?  Are you carrying guilt from the past?  Do you want to feel in control of your emotions rather than have them control you?

Time Line Therapy can allow freedom from inappropriate levels of emotions such as anger, sadness, fear, hurt and guilt by releasing them from the memories that feed them. You are then able to react freely and more appropriately to future situations without the emotional baggage of the past.

Time Line Therapy can also be used to overcome any limiting beliefs you may have, such as: "I'm not good enough," or  "I'll never have enough money”.


Mind Detox™

The Mind Detox Method is a way of finding and healing the possible emotional root causes for your life problems.  By resolving the reasons why your problems existed they have no alternative but to disappear. 

Using this method you can target specific things you want to change or improve. 

Mind Detox can help to stop you feeling negative emotions about certain people, places, events or things; change any self-limiting beliefs that stop you being happy and having a successful home and work life; reduce stress levels and feel more calm and confident in any situation.  Go to for further information.


Life coaching

Are you not getting what you want in your personal or professional life but don’t know why?  Do you know what you want to achieve in your life but aren’t sure how to focus on getting it?

Using various techniques we can work together to make the most of your abilities and get rid of any negative beliefs that may be holding you back. 

Coaching involves a more ongoing relationship over a number of sessions to help you achieve what you want in life.

Mindfulness, meditation and relaxation

How would you like to have an hour to yourself just relaxing and being able to totally chill out?   

The guided meditations that I use initially take you through a gradual relaxation of your muscles. 
 Because your mind and body are connected your mind can’t help but become quieter and more relaxed when your body is relaxed. I then take you on a beautiful relaxing journey.  It may be through a forest or along a warm sunny, sandy beach.  Wherever we go, it will be to a place of calm relaxation.  

I then bring you back gradually, allowing you time to come back into the room and stretch, so you can leave feeling chilled out and relaxed but alert enough to drive home.   

Guided Meditations can be combined with Reiki for the ultimate in relaxation. 

I can give you some guidance on how to meditate or show you a variety of relaxation techniques that you can take away with you.  Just tell me what you need and I can tailor a session just for you.

I also run meditation, mindfulness and relaxation courses.   For more information go to my meditation page.


Indian Head Massage

Indian head massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years.  It involves massaging your head, face, upper back, shoulders, arms and hands.  The massage can be relaxing or invigorating.  I can adjust it according to your needs at the time.   Always tell me if you like a lighter or firmer touch.

This massage can relieve tension in the muscles, which may be causing a stiff neck and shoulders, eye strain or possibly hair loss.   It also has a positive effect on your emotions, calming and relaxing you and relieving stress.

Your circulation is improved as the massage increases blood flow; this brings nutrients and oxygen to the head and neck area. You may find your concentration improves and you can think more clearly.

Your lymphatic drainage is increased, stimulating a healthier immune system and the removal of toxins. The increased blood and lymph flow should help your sinuses drain more efficiently.

You can choose whether you want the massage to be done through your clothes or directly on your skin, with or without oils. Please be prepared for your hair to look a bit messy by the time I have finished, so remember to bring a brush or comb.  If you prefer feeling the oil on your head I have a dry shampoo that you can use so your hair doesn’t look oily when you leave. However, leaving the oil to soak in overnight can improve the condition of your hair and scalp.


Shantihi Reiki

Are you in need of some peace and relaxation or do you want to help your body heal from a physical or emotional trauma?

Reiki is a natural therapy where healing is performed by the touch of the hands, allowing the energy to flow into you. It is an extremely powerful, yet gentle energy. 

When the flow of energy in your body is disrupted or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused by emotional or physical trauma, injury or negative thoughts and feelings.  Reiki can help to restore the balance. 

Shantihi Reiki combines traditional Reiki with other energy techniques.  Most people wouldn’t be aware of the difference, although I have been told by one person that it is more gentle and others that it is like turbo charged Reiki.  That may be more to do with what each person needed rather than the energy itself.  Try it for yourself.  I think you’ll love it!
