Workshops

Stress ToolBox

Relaxation training is a key part of my business and as such, I deliver workshops to organisations who not only value the personal health and wellbeing of their staff, but recognise the many benefits of a relaxed and positive team.

The most popular workshop is the Stress ToolBox:  A full day, experiential training in relaxation techniques and coping skills.

Here are some the companies I have worked with:

British Energy - The Ayrshire Recovery Network - Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership - Barnado's

East Ayrshire Council - Partners For Inclusion - Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services - Combat Stress

Job Rotation - Leeds Staff Support - MI Technologies - Seastar 

Reiki

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese word representing Universal Life Energy, the life force of all things in the Universe. You may be familiar with the Usui System of Reiki Healing, a simple hands-on healing system which helps restore the natural balance in the body.

The Usui System of Reiki is a natural healing art that can be learnt by anyone. Reiki is not a religion, and requires no particular belief system. It promotes deep relaxation, bringing a sense of peace and well-being working on the emotions, mind and spirit as well as the physical body. It is the perfect treatment to use alongside other therapies and medical treatments.

On the one day workshop you will be taken through Reiki 1 training giving you a comprehensive history of Reiki Healing, the 5 Reiki principles and the hand positions required to carry out a full body treatment. The only pre-requisites are openness and a desire to learn. You will be taught techniques for grounding and protecting yourself and self reiki will be an integral part of the day.

During a Reiki Treatment you lie on a table fully clothed, covered with a blanket. The practitioner's hands are placed in a set sequence of positions on your head, front and back of the body. They rest gently in each position for about 5 minutes. The treatment lasts from 60 - 90 minutes. You may fall asleep, be silent or talk. You may feel sensations of warmth, or you may feel nothing.

It is recommended that people with chronic complaints take the first level class so that they can then support their healing process by self-treatment between visits to their practitioner.

At the end of the workshop you will receive a Reiki 1 Certificate. For more information about Reiki training including dates and booking online please get in touch.

Emotional Freedom Technique

Gary Craig, founder of the Emotional Freedom Technique said:

“The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system”

Humans have a physical body fuelled by food and we also have an intricate energy system, fuelled by electrical impulses that run through the body. This energy system holds the key to many of the disturbances we experience in our daily lives. When it is out of balance, our emotional life is like a car that is in desperate need of a service.

EFT relieves symptoms by an unusual but scientific routine of tapping with the fingertips on specific points on the energy meridians, quickly neutralizing disruptions in your body's electrical system. This then stops the chemical chain reaction and frees you from emotional and physical discomforts.

On the one day workshop you can learn the EFT procedure. These full day training courses will enable you to use EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) as a tool to relieve negative emotions such as depression, anger, phobias, and cravings. You will also learn how to use EFT to reduce and even eliminate physical pain and discomfort EFT is simple to use and remarkably effective in bringing about lasting change.
