METATRONIC HEALING INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS – Jill Goodwin (Registered Practitioner of Metatronic Healing)
Metatronic Healing flushes out the dense fears, emotional issues, conditioning and energetic debris which hold our ‘stories’ within the cells of our body and energy system. The effort consumed holding these blocks in place is gently released, unwinding tension, releasing inner pressure and therefore promoting physical and emotional health – holistic healing. It allows more of the light that is a reflection of your truest nature to be revealed.
Metatronic Healing is the method that has evolved since archangel Metatron first communicated with Pippa Merivale – its founder in 2007. Metatron’s promise was that this method of energy healing would “lift the unconscious story from the body’s cellular memory and activate the heart centre.”
Sessions last 60 minutes.

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY – Paul Titmuss B.A. (Hons.), Upledger CranioSacral Therapy, Reiki ( First Degree )
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a hands-on therapy, where the touch is a very gentle, non-invasive and usually very subtle. But don’t be fooled, it is also a powerful therapy that positively affects the central nervous system to assist in improving function in the whole body.
By using ‘listening hands’ to feel the CranioSacral Rhythm (CSR), it is possible to feel how well the CSR is reflecting out to the rest of the body and what can be done to improve its functioning. This may mean simply encouraging it, as if you are gently flushing more fluid through a slightly sticky pipe, or it could mean using gentle techniques to unwind kinks in the body’s fascia: sort of like straightening out a sleeve or sock that isn’t on quite squarely.
Clients find CranioSacral Therapy effective for a wide range of problems associated with discomfort, pain and dysfunction particularly in the head, neck, shoulder, back and pelvic area. CST is increasingly used as a preventative health measure. All treatments take place without clients needing to remove any clothing and following a detailed health questionnaire.
One hour treatments cost £35.00

Clinical Hynotherapy is a therapeutic solution that uses an altered state of consciousness to create new feelings, thoughts, responses, attitudes or behaviours. During hypnosis you will feel deeply relaxed, which enables the therapist to bypass the conscious mind and work directly with the subconscious, where many of our issues reside. Positive suggestion and other techniques, such as timeline therapy and trauma processing models, can create useful changes in a short time.
Specialised in treating trauma and PTSD using a comprehensive range of tools to address their many aspects. I work with complex cases and also help with anxiety reduction and transforming many difficulties that life can bring.

PSYCHOTHERAPY, PLAY THERAPY CREATIVE ARTS THERAPY – Mo Ostler
I have worked in the field of mental health and psychology for the last 30 years. After working for 20 years with adults, I then went on to train to work in depth with children. My work with each complements the other.
I trained initially in Hakomi Psychotherapy; Hakomi is a Hopi Indian word which means ‘who am I in relation to these many realms’.
My major training is in Process Oriented Psychology, in which I trained for 10 years. With its roots with Jung, in Process Oriented Psychology we follow the everyday conscious and unconscious signals that are manifested as we live our day to day lives, and which hold the answers that we seek. I truly believe that all of us have within us solutions to any dilemnas we may face. As a therapist I have the skills to help you discover what they are. At times, the sessions can look like a quiet chat, or deeply felt meditation, and at others we can explore using movement and play. Your own individual journey and personal leanings will dictate how we work together.
Play is the child’s language. Through play children work through any difficulties they may be having, engaging with the therapist both with and without words. Adults often find this way of working helpful, or at use creative arts as a way to express themselves as well as, or instead of words.
I also work with couples.
Please contact me for more information or an informal chat about my work.
