Integrative Counselling – Sophie works intuitively as an Integrative counsellor, providing a kind, compassionate safe space for you to be truly heard, a space for you to express yourself without any barriers or judgement. A space for you to bring the real you, the one we hide behind a veneer of “I am fine” when someone asks how you are.
Sophie sees counselling as Life Supervision, something everyone needs at different times of their lives to work through the sticky bits of life. A counsellor is a guide, who enables you to find your own way home. To feel truly heard without adaptation by someone else’s own experience seems such a rare and extraordinary thing. As a counsellor it is about stepping aside from your own experiences and judgements to allow another’s words and feelings to be shared in all their entirety as if experiencing alongside them.
Holistic Massage – Sophie works intuitively with her hands and how your body is presenting. She works deeply when necessary, as well as with gently soothing massage too..
Reflexology – This therapy uses the reflection of the body on the feet to assist the body in finding balance (homeostasis) Reflexology is very relaxing and seems to help the body to eliminate toxins. Many people say that it helps reduce pain, enhances mood and improves sleep. Reflexology can help to create the necessary sense of calm and wellbeing that’s essential to cope with life.
Indian Head Massage – comes from Ayurveda, which takes into account mind, body and spirit. Helps to release tension to muscles, aiding relaxation and generally clearing a busy mind. Returning a sense of balance and harmony. Good for stress. Useful also for eye strain, headaches and mental fatigue.
Reiki – (pronounced Ray Key) is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. The area being treated often feels warmth or tingling, even when a non-touching approach is being used
Sophie use natural, organic massage oils & balms
