'Holotropic' - 'The movement towards wholeness'. A powerful experiential approach to individual wisdom..

Counselling and Psychotherapy


'Counselling and psychotherapy, when seen in terms of role value and effectiveness, the BACP believes that each occupational area has equal value'.


The degree of 'counselling' or 'psychotherapy' varies according to the clients need during the therapy session. We have worked with children, teens and adult clients covering a wide range of presenting issues including; anger, abuse, addictions, relationships, sexuality, neglect, behavioural problems, parental issues, abandonment, self esteem and worth, and much more.


Children often work through 'issues' in a sand play, 'play' session where at times the presenting issue may not even be mentioned directly by the child, yet when the 'play' is completed there can be an inner resolution or change in behaviour that continues on into everyday life.


The Modalities are our 'toolbox' as it were, and for different clients and situations we are able to engage with one or more of the 'tools' that enables the client to work through the presenting issue effectively.


In the session we encourage free expression of emotions, in a safe and supportive environment. A sense of safety and unconditional support is essential for clients to touch into their emotions. Once the emotional content is understood we encourage a period of integration for a more cognitive understanding, to absorb the deeper contents of the emotional experience.


The process of 'sharing experiences' can be of great value, we often hear, 'I thought I was the only one who felt like that', and when you realise you are not the only one who suffers with a particular issue then it becomes easier to work through and deal with that issue.


The realisation that one is not alone with their 'problem' can be a gateway for personal healing.


Holotropic Breathwork


Holotropic Breathwork is a powerful experiential approach accessing the inner healing wisdom within each individual.


It utilizes breathing, music and focused energy release work to access the deeper dimensions of the psyche that can include biographical, perinatal and transpersonal realms of consciousness.


Life's many challenges from birth onward can leave us puzzled - 'why are my relationships unsatisfactory?' – 'why do I feel angry, afraid, frustrated, betrayed, unmotivated, inadequate, spiritually adrift?'- in ways that go deeper than just  present day events.


All these and much more may provide gateways into the deeper realms of the 'self' where underlying issues may find healing.



We are offering individual and small group Breathwork sessions for those who wish to explore or deepen their inner work/journey
