Counselling (humanistic integrative) – £30 for 50 mins

A combination of Person Centred, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt Theories are integrated in these sessions. Person Centred (Carl Rodgers) is about providing a safe space with unconditional positive regard, congruence and empathy so clients can process their feelings and thought, and discover their own answers. Transactional Analysis (Eric Berne) is about becoming aware of the conversations we have in our head, which are identified as either parent-adult-child ego states. It also looks at the conversations we have with others and which ego states we converse with and recognising the ‘games we play’. Gestalt (Fritz Perls) is concerned with the here and now, feelings held in the body and expressing them. It is not concerned with the telling of life stories, but more about how those events make us feel in the present moment.

Reiki healing – £30 for 50 mins

Rei-Ki (pronounced Ray-key) is an ancient system of natural healing involving the laying-on of hands, although it can also be given slightly away from the body and by distance. ‘Rei’ means ‘universal’ and is the higher intelligence or higher spiritual consciousness that guides the creation and function of the universe. It is the wisdom that comes from ‘All That Is’ so understands the needs of and root cause of all problems/difficulties and how to heal them. ‘Ki’ means ‘life force’ and is the energy that flows through every living thing. In has other cultural names e.g. Chi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit. It is the primary source of our thoughts, emotions, experience and spiritual existence. Martial arts have used the same energy for spiritual development as well as healing and manifestation. Ki is employed by all healers regardless of discipline. So Reiki is a spiritually directed life force energy. It is a very simple but powerful healing technique that is easily given and received by everyone.

The actual words ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki’ are thought to originate from ‘Raku-Kei’ and are from the Japanese language. ‘Raku’ is the vertical energy flow and ‘Kei’ is the horizontal energy flow through the body. Raki-Kei is the art and science of self-improvement used by ancient Tibetan Lamas and Buddhist monks dating back thousands of years. Reiki was re-discovered in the 1800’s by Japanese scholar and traveller Dr Mikao Usui and subsequently known as Usui Shiki Ryoho, or today as The Usui System of Reiki.
