This is the providing of support and therapy that encourages self healing in the client. We do not "heal" or "cure" people.
We have two fully qualified therapists on staff, and a network of trusted colleagues around the UK we refer to.
We are complementary health practitioners, not alternative health practitioners. This means that we work WITH the medical profession. If you have an illness or injury, or if you are going to embark on a new diet, fitness plan or if you have any uninvestigated symptoms, you must consult your medical doctor.
Holistic HealingPlease note that holistic healing does not claim to treat or cure any medical condition. Holistic healing treats the client holistically. This means that the healing treatments aim to strengthen the client in healing themselves. Holistic healing is not a substitute for medical attention.
There are a range of holistic healing methods that can assist the client in managing their conditions through improved quality of life, or in strengthening the client holistically and thus hopefully enabling them to better self-heal.
Many of these are combined where appropriate in Transpersonal psychology / transpersonal psychotherapy. This does not mean having to convert to or follow any perticular faith or belief. Indeed a strength of transpersonal therapy is to look at common themes in faith and non-faith societies.
Reiki involves the channeling of universal healing energy through the practitioner into the client. It can be used as a stand alone healing method, or more commonly in conjunction with other healing methods like visualisation or crystal healing. There are different forms of Reiki, including traditional, fusion, eclectic, dolphin and colour. Reiki can also be sent as healing energy as a distance healing method.
Crystal or gemstone healing uses the power and energy of crystals in healing. This method works well together with other healing methods such as colour therapy and Reiki. More information on crystal healing HERE
The power of the mind to self heal is a respected and well known phenomenum. Those of a clinical disposition believe this is because of the resulting decrease in stress levels and stress related hormones / chemicals in the body, thus assisting the immune system. Practitioners who use visualisation for personal change work tend to refer more to the ability of positive visualisation to encourage perceptual and behavioural change. Practitioners with a holistic or spiritual basis look instead at the overall effect that can have a profound benefit to well being and personal self healing. Visualisation combines with virtually any form of healing.
Colour healing and colour therapy have been used in both holistic treatments and a number of maintream medical environments for centuries. Indeed evidence has been found of colour therapy and light treatments dating back to ancient Egyptian and ancient Chinese civilisations. Colour has been shown to have actual hormonal change effects in the body, and is used holistically to adjust, balance and heal. Colour therapy can be used as a single therapy or healing method, but it combines very well with other methods too, especially crystal healing and holistic mental health therapies such as life coaching.
Chakra healing refers to the use of healing methods on the system of Chakra points in the body. Different traditions claim that there are different energy centres or Chakra's in the body. Whatever the tradition, it is agreed that balancing and supporting the different Chakra points has a wonderful holistic healing effect on the body. "Blocked", "restricted", "slow", or "excessively fast" Chakra points and connecting lines of energy have holistic effects mentally, physically and spiritually. A variety of holistic methods are used to address these problems, and there are huge areas of overlap into therapies such as Chi Gung, Yoga, Crystal Healing, Colour Therapy, Visualisation, Reiki and faith based methods.
This encompasses a wide range of holistic healing methods. These include Reiki, colour therapy, laying on hands, crystal, Chakra, Aura and many more. Essentially it refers to any holistic healing method that "sends" or "channels" healing energy into the client. Energy healing can be used while using other complementary therapies and also can be sent as distance healing.
Various herbs, oils, flower essences, aromas, biochemical salts and even foods and teas have a holistic healing effect. Different traditions such as western traditional, Wiccan, Auyvedic, Chinese etc have different models and systems associated with them. These systems believe that the foods, herbs, teas and other substances all have an effect not only on specific conditions, but also on the balances and systems of the body as a whole. Thus a whole range of influences exist. More on Herbalism HERE
Specific faith healing methods are available including multi-faith, Wiccan, Christian and Kabbalah. More on pastoral and faith issues HERE

Stuart employs spontaneous style Qi Gong, Chi breathing, Zen Reiki, meditation, visualisation and mindfulness techniques from Buddhism in his practice. He also employs Taoist philosophy, buddhist philosophy, interfaith philosophy and japanese complementary holistic styles in assisting his clients. He is attuned in multiple Reiki styles and is a Reiki Master practitioner.
All healing is provided according to the appropriate NOS National Occupational Standards, mainly the NOS Healing and the NOS Reiki. Both practitioners have extensive training in healing topics. Not all healing systems have accredited training awards, but where possible both practitioners have completed courses or units that have accreditation through NVQ or ASET. Both practitioners are Reiki attuned in different Reiki forms including traditional (Stuart: Reiki Master Level, Denise Reiki 2 Level). Both practitioners are ordained "healing ministers" in a multi-faith context (Stuart & Denise with CSP). All faiths are respected equally, as is atheism. Stuart has also written a professional Holistic Healing Practitioner course (Level 4 award).
Please note that the above award was ASET accredited until Jan 09. Since Jan 09 it has been a dual award with a diploma from Stonebridge Associated Colleges, and also leading to an award certificate at the appropriate level from NCFE.
Both practitioners use the term "therapist" and not "healer" since we wish to make it clear that assistance is holistic.
In the first instance drop us an email or use the feedback form to contact us. We can then advise whether we feel we can appropriately assist you.
We adhere to appropriate National Occupational Standards, carry professional insurance and support statutory regulation of therapists. We support the coming voluntary regulation of psychotherapy and counselling. Stuart is a CNHC registered hypnotherapist (voluntary regulation of hypnotherapy).
