When the college closed in 2000 Alex decided to start the five-year BSc course in TCM at Middlesex University. This was the first collaborative professional programme in TCM to be validated in the UK. During his time at Middlesex University Alex also gained his professional diploma in tuina massage and certificate in acupuncture first aid.

Barry David Cooper

  Barry Cooper
For many years I considered myself a “lapsed psychologist”. In my mid-teens I regularly read articles on popular psychology - what would now be called “self-improvement” - and also developed an interest in psychical research. The common factor was the potential of the human mind – what “makes us tick”. I decided to become a psychologist, and enrolled for a psychology degree at Reading University in 1970. The course had a strong experimental bias, and was far from the practical subject that I had had in mind. In fact, the course succeeded in putting me off psychology as a career, and I was talked into becoming an accountant! I discovered within a few weeks that I hated auditing, and as soon as I qualified I specialised in taxation. With the increasing complexity of the UK tax system, due to messing about by successive governments, I eventually began to loathe my work as a tax adviser. When my wife died in 2001 I was able to consider a change of profession and a return to applied psychology. I started with an NLP Practitioner course, followed by a full practitioner’s diploma course in clinical hypnosis. More recently, I became interested in meridian energy therapies (MET), particularly Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), a versatile tool now used by many hypnotherapists, and qualified as an MET Practitioner. I am now an Advanced MET Practitioner and a Practitioner in another MET, EmoTrance. I was also the first to qualify in LifeMapper Coaching – a brand new concept for personal development and success. I also have diplomas in stress management training and organisational stress management, and I'm a certified past life regression specialist. I now consider myself to be a “lapsed accountant”! ...Full details

Dora Csendes

  Dora Csendes is a qualified therapist offering a range of relaxing and healing therapies to ease both physical and emotional strains and stresses. Reflexology, massage, energy healing (Reiki, Prana Nadi) and Bach flower essences are all wonderfully designed tools to help people maintain or regain a healthy body and a balanced spirit. These gentle therapeutic treatments (or combinations thereof) are always tailored to the clients’ personal needs and are equally suitable for adults and children.

“Since solving my own health problems with natural and complementary therapies, I decided to dedicate myself to learning and practising them myself. I started my studies in 2000 with Reiki healing and continued to add different therapies to my repertoire since then. The range of treatments I now use allows me to treat my clients in a flexible way, and by using combinations of the different therapies I am able to address both physical and emotional issues at the same time. By continuously adjusting my treatments to the clients’ needs I aim to provide a fully holistic healing experience.

I truly believe that the natural state of the human body is health and balance, yet in order to maintain that, both our body and our soul need looking after on a regular basis. The complementary therapies offered are designed to awaken the clients’ own healing powers and enable them to take responsibility for their own healing. I am always honoured and happy to be the facilitator of that healing process and see my clients restore their state of balance and harmony.” ...Full details

Gaynor Hughes

  Gaynor Hughes RGN, NMTA, Reiki II, VTCT, LPT Dip,

I am a registered nurse and have been caring for people for over 20 years. With many experiences and skills gained, it started to become clear that there is more to healing than conventional medicine alone. The body, I discovered is a complex one whether it is on a physical, emotional or psychological level and has the ability to heal itself.

Over the past 5-6 years I have been gaining information and qualifications in many aspects of therapies that suits all individual needs. My purpose in life is to help people and have treated people with different conditions. This is achieved either in their own homes or if preferred in a treatment room. I work at a Hospice and giving healing in this environment is very rewarding especially when giving a person a sense of better well being and some improvement to their quality in life. My work is enhanced by being a light work practitioner, working with the angelic energy force.

Geoffrey Curtis

  I first became interested in Craniosacral Therapy work about 15 years ago when I had a significant health problem. I was so struck with the power and potential of CST that I was inspired to train myself. Craniosacral training is a three year course starting with a very detailed study of anatomy and physiology before moving onto a sophisticated array of specific techniques and methodologies to deal with different complaints.

CST is becoming more and more well known and often people have heard of babies being treated and problems such as colic, difficulty sleeping, birth trauma etc being resolved very quickly. Babies and children respond very well to the subtle yet powerful techniques of CST.

Craniosacral work can often help conditions that the patient has had for a long time or problems that have not improved with other forms of treatment. Two recent clients report:

‘At the time when I started having sessions with Geoff, I was very stressed and tense. After only two or three weekly sessions this stress just disappeared although I hadn’t anticipated it would! I have had moments of stress since my treatments but never at the level I had before.

‘I was in a lot of pain taking 30 prescription painkillers a day after a back operation, after 4 sessions I stopped taking the painkillers completely and could walk much more freely.’

Craniosacral work is an exciting and powerful form of treatment which is becoming more and more well known. ...Full details

Testimonial

"I would just like to thank you so very much Linda. I haven't, and never will forget what I felt like before, and the change from then until now, well, I never thought it was possible - and it's all because of you. I really cannot thank you enough, you really have changed my whole outlook on life completely, and reinforced my dream of volunteering in Africa and my want of a career dedicated to helping people. It is not only the remedies that have helped me though, I know I have only seen and spoken to you twice, but the feelings of positivity and inspiration I am filled with after a session with you are uplifting. To be believed, understood completely, and to be told that it is o.k to feel what I have felt during these past 4 years, and that it's o.k to be myself is just absolutely amazing. You really cannot understand what you have given me, I haven't met anybody in my life whose brief encounter has had such a profound effect on me, both emotionally and physically, and for that I cannot thank you enough." - Ro Harris, psychology student, England ...Full details

Lorraine Berry

  I have always been committed towards helping women and their families achieve a good experience of pregnancy and birth and successfully completed my Bsc(Hons) degree in Midwifery Studies in 1998.

My core beliefs are that pregnancy and birth are normal life events taking place with the loving support of family and friends and that women's amazing intuition and ability to know how to birth their babies instinctively should be protected and respected. As part of my NHS career, I have worked in all areas of pregnancy and birth, including community caseload holder and senior midwife on labour ward. Consequently, I have had a wide range of experience caring for women and families with healthy straightforward pregnancies as well as those with more complex issues.

As my practice has developed I have become increasingly convinced that the way a birth is experienced has an impact reaching far beyond the first few days of sleepless nights and nappies - families and women whose experience has been positive appear more confident in their parenting abilities and better able to deal with the challenges that lie ahead, proudly recalling how they managed to achieve a wonderful birth for their child. My personal challenge is how to help women and families achieve these positive outcomes.

During my first pregnancy, I became aware of Natal Hypnotherapy and began using the techniques early on. I was keen to have a natural birthing experience and planned to have a water birth at home. I experienced a little negativity from my obstetrician who wanted to induce my baby at term, particularly as I did not appear to be carrying a very large baby. However, I felt instinctively that my baby was the right size for me and was confident in my natural ability to birth my baby safely and calmly – all of which was reinforced by the regular self hypnosis sessions I was doing. It was as if I had a protective cocoon around me to ward off any negative opinions or comments. When I started to labour, I was not conscious of choosing to use Natal Hypnotherapy techniques during the birth - it was something that just happened naturally and subconsciously.

I am absolutely certain that the techniques enabled me to achieve the birth I had dreamed of. I laboured at home with the loving support of my husband and my midwife, never feeling the need for any “pain relief” and finding contractions manageable at all times. I was completely aware of what was happening, although I am told I appeared to be sleeping, and felt in control and relaxed. The birth itself was euphoric – I birthed my baby in the pool with no need for any additional help, and he breastfed almost immediately. It was the most incredible experience. I had a natural third stage, birthing the placenta about an hour later.

My second son was also born at home using Natal Hypnotherapy and again the birth was a completely natural, calm and peaceful experience.

My personal experiences of using Natal Hypnotherapy totally convinced me that this was something that all Mums could benefit from. I was also delighted that the research supports the beneficial effects Natal Hypnotherapy can have. Clearly, becoming a Natal Hypnotherapy Practitioner was a natural continuation in my ambition to help families have birth experiences that they can recall with pleasure and pride and I am delighted to now be able to offer these courses in Hertfordshire. ...Full details

Lyn Richardson

  Lyn Richardson DSEH

Since 1998 Lyn has trained in many holistic therapies and now offers in her practice those she finds the most effective, which are Energy Healing, ThetaHealing, EIP of DNA and PSYCH-K.

All my life I have wondered about life and the universe - I wanted to know how things worked. I even studied physics to degree level in the hope it would lead me to my heart’s longing, but of course it didn’t. Then, a long time later, after a successful career in computing followed by a number of years spent living abroad, I became ill and was diagnosed as suffering from M.E.

This was the first step of my journey into another world, not only the discovery of how we actually create the reality we experience on a day to day basis, but also the opportunity to fully experience the often read assertion that happiness is not dependent upon external events but rather is something held inside each individual. These two understandings are the keys to unlocking the mystery of life, to enable you to create the life your heart and soul have always been longing for.

As my life's journey unfolds, I am continually discovering new and deeper ways of working. I offer the best of these new techniques, together with more established modalities, as tools to help others on their life's path. As a practitioner I offer you respect, warmth, a willingness to listen and to grow with you on your journey to the light.

Paul Shelvey

  Paul Shelvey began his working life within the Criminal Justice System and spent some years working with young offenders and then children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. With a long term interest in Eastern approaches to health and spirituality, in the early nineties, Paul trained in the body-based approach of Polarity Therapy with the International School of Polarity Therapy.

To further develop his counselling skills he then undertook a training in the transpersonal or psycho-spiritual model of Psychosynthesis Counselling and Therapy with the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust. Finding himself working in, and for a short time managing, a drug and alcohol addiction day centre, he looked for models that were effective in that field and trained in William Glasser’s cognitive behavioural model of Reality Therapy. He is currently a member of the executive of the Reality Therapy Institute UK and is involved in delivering trainings as an Advanced Practicum Facilitator.

With a personal practice of Buddhist meditation Paul was also interested in therapies that were derived from Buddhist Psychology. He studied ‘Constructive Living’, a synthesis of the Japanese psychotherapies of Morita and Naikan, in the US, with Dr David Reynolds who is the West’s leading expert in these therapies. He attended Senkobo temple in Japan to complete his Naikan studies.

He is currently involved with Mindfulness Studies at the University of Wales and is integrating Jon Kabbat-Zinns Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Programme and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy into his work.

Peter's background is in the field of I.T. in which he worked for 16 years. During this time he felt a growing wish to work directly with people, and to find and to use the most powerful techniques out there to facilitate change.

Peter's creativity and passion for helping to bring out the best in people motivates him to continuously research the field of personal and spiritual devlopment. He believes we are increasingly finding methods that enable our development faster and more effectively than ever before.

After around 10 years in I.T. Peter suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome which, although he kept working, he found it a challenge to concentrate and keep motivated. He then started a journey which lead from conventional medicine to meditation and other alternative and complementary methods. He continuously works to find and evolve methods that are most effective in treating specific conditions. ...Full details

Shilloo Varma

  My name is Shilloo Varma. I am a Reflexologist in Central London. I studied at the British School of Complementary Therapy, Harley Street, London and have been practicing for over 5 years. I am also specially trained to treat pregnant women. I was born in India and did my schooling there and graduated from Bombay University with a BA (Hons) in Sociology and Psychology. My family come from Kerala and the Ayurvedic system was a part of our everyday lives. I have always been interested in caring for people and making them feel good and tried several courses till Reflexology found me! Reflexology is a complementary therapy in which the therapist uses specialised movements to work over every part of each foot to relax, clear any blockages and imbalances felt because in reflexology we believe that the feet mirror the body. I use a gentle touch to deeply relax my clients as I feel this is what helps the body to release it’s own healing energy. Reflexology has greatly benefited clients who have come to me with fertility related issues, for stress-related conditions, digestive problems, backaches, headaches and insomnia. It benefits everyone as it relaxes, eases tensions and leaves one with a feeling of real well being. It is also completely safe and non invasive.

Maternity Reflexology

I am specially qualified to treat pregnant women as I have done an advanced course in Maternity Reflexology with the highly respected midwife cum reflexologist, Suzanne Enzer. The special routine helps a woman feel more comfortable during pregnancy and helps to prepare for an easier labour.

Simon Charles

  Simon Charles is now in his 26th year in full time Hypnotherapy & Homeopathy and Healing/B>. Simon long since recognised that you cannot heal or cure all of the people all of the time with just one alternative disclipline, so a mix and match therapeutic system is individually worked out for each individual. Sometimes the emphasis will be on Hypnotherapy or Psychotherapy, Homeopathy or Healing. Homeopathy is the only paradigm that could ever rival and replace authodoxy in terms of general treatment for disease. In order to understand Homeopathy one first needs to know what authodoxy (allo-opathy) is. This system works by immuni-system-suppression through chemical toxicity. Homepathy works through immunie system stimulation, energising and vitality. In Homeopathy we use the system "the hair of the dog that bit one" or "a little of the thing to cure the thing". Like with like, throught the law of similars. If someone attends consultation for arsenic poisoning, likely to get a fine and carefully prepared, dilute, energised dose fo arsenic to combat it. So all homeopathic medicines work through the vaccinal idea. Homeopathy is particularly good for old people, children, woman’s complaints and rare and peculiar symptoms undiagnosed by authodoxy.

I trained at the Blythe College which then became the national College of Psychology, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy, then the College of Practical Homeopathy (I did two post-grad courses there). I have contributed vastly to modern practical homeopathic theory and practice to incorporate handling more holistically these modern highly toxic times. I supervise students and new practitioners and also I mark the graduation exam papers for the homeopathic colleges, along with running a full-time practice. ...Full details

I have always worked with my hands.

I have a fine art degree in Sculpture which then evolved into a job working at the Royal Opera House in the Hat and Jewellery department, as milliner, mask maker and costume jewellery maker. Whilst I was there I took a course in Thai massage. I then travelled the world with an Irish dance show as Head of Costume, doing massage courses wherever we were based for any length of time. I had the added advantage of regular on site massage that the company provided, experiencing all forms of massage in different countries, different styles, techniques and routines. This decided me to venture further and study it in more depth myself, on leaving the company. I took a holistic massage course after having my first child, and then an advanced pre-natal training when pregnant with my second, as I had so benefitted from massage myself during the first pregnancy. At any opportunity, I do continue to learn and train further, expanding and enriching my knowledge and understanding of the body.

Now a content mother of two, I work as a massage therapist specialising in pregnancy massage, both from an alternative therapy clinic in Crouch End, , and as a mobile service covering Herts and North London . ...Full details

Susan Millican

  Susan Millican
I have been practising as a Homeopath for over 18 years and have been registered with the Society of Homeopaths since 1991. I see the process of Homeopathic treatment as a very personal journey for the patient: if what needs to be treated is simply a skin eruption then this is equally valid and should be honoured as a more deeply emotional issue. I see myself as working alongside a patient: the time of the appointment is your space to explore whatever needs to be treated at that time.

In addition to my training as a Homeopath I am also trained as a Scenar Practitioner.The Scenar device is bio-controlled, electro-impulse therapy used to provide pain relief by using the body’s own healing reserves. I have found that this is a very useful addition to homeopathic treatment.

Once you are my patient I offer a comprehensive range of treatments: I treat any acute symptoms as they arise as by treating them I can build up a picture of you by assessing how you react to different remedies. I am also available if you suffer any events as they occurr eg accidents,falls or emotional shocks. Homeopathy has a wonderful range of remedies to treat these life events. Obviously it is important that you still use your G.P. as and when you feel it is necessary.

In time you will probably learn which remedies help you and feel confident to self-prescribe if you wish to.

I am also part of a network of other alternative practitioners who I am happy to recommend. I have regular phone-in times which you should use if you have any queries or concerns or acute symptoms (eg a cold or cough) during your treatment.

I am part of a group of Homeopaths who provide emergency cover. Once you have become my patient you will be entitled to use this service every day of the year. There is no extra charge for this service. ...Full details

Suzanne Franklin

 

Suzanne Franklyn

The Journey changed my life - in every possible way! During a desperately traumatic time in my life, traditional medicine left me with such unpleasant side effects that I chose to struggle through without them. My 15 year career as a sceptical Sales Manager left little room for belief that anything so simple could possibly work. Having experienced the Journey process for myself, I was so impressed by the immediate and wonderful changes in me that I felt the need to learn as much as I could about it. So happy was I with my 'new' life that I decided to give up my sales career to train as a fully qualified Accredited Journey Practitioner. I wanted to pass on this incredibly effective healing process. I feel truly privileged and honoured to have been part of the amazing changes that Journey Therapy has brought to the lives of people from all works of life: men, women and children of all ages (from 3 years old to 78 years young), who had suffered many different and varied issues, both physical and emotional.

I have facilitated over 900 Journey Processes in the past 5 years and my clients include well known Celebrities, Actresses, teachers, senior government officials, Chief Executive, and Directors. Like many of us I had experienced a number of traumas in my personal life – the worst time being in 1997, when my now ex-husband was attacked and suffered Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This took many months to diagnose, by which time we had separated and had both experienced a great deal of trauma.

As a secondary victim of my husband’s Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, I was prescribed traditional medicine to help me through this indescribable time. For me, the side effects of the drugs were so unpleasant that it was preferable to just struggle through the years of anguish without them. I also received traditional counselling, which eventually helped slightly, but seemed to take so long to have any effect. I subsequently attended a Counselling Training Course, which confirmed my belief that many people want to have faster results and move forward with their lives.

A friend recommended a book called ‘The Journey’ by Brandon Bays. I bought the book, could not put it down and then attended a Journey Intensive weekend.

Being a sceptical Sales Manager I did not initially believe anything so simple could possibly work, but I was so impressed by the immediate changes in myself that I felt driven to learn more about it. I made the decision to leave my full time employment as Sales Development Manager to complete the Accreditation Course and the many case studies involved. The feedback from my clients is so rewarding.

I am so much happier, healthier and relaxed about life. My family and friends have seen the wonderful changes in me and have had Journey processes themselves. Even my sceptical sons (now aged 24 and 23 years) are willing to have Journey processes! I wish I had known about the Journey years ago!!

As part of being a Journey practitioner we are encouraged to use intuitively other skills we have or are trained in. I use various tool such as N.L.P. (Neurolinguistic programming), Art therapy, Creative Visualisation which may be integrated as part of a Designer Journey. I have put together various programmes including fertility, weight loss, natural facelift, business stress, woman’s health issues, past life regression. Please get in touch to find out more about these.

Fertility Therapy

At least 25% of British couples encounter problems conceiving.

Women can become so desperate to have a baby that their lives become an emotional roller coaster and with the body in a perpetual state of fight or flight is it any wonder pregnancy doesn’t occur? For nearly a third of couples their infertility is ‘unexplained’. The answer is to look deeper at lifestyle factors and emotional elements.

Fertility Therapy offers a safe, painless, non invasive, and often immediately effective solution without the use of medication.

This powerful, successful, and unique programme has helped many couples become pregnant. The therapy can be alongside IVF programmes to dramatically increase the chances of pregnancy.

Suzanne Franklin's successful experiences as a practitioner with clients suffering from other health issues such as Endometriosis, PMT and Depression were also often experiencing problems conceiving. This motivated her to train to become one of only 40 specialist practitioners in the UK trained in HypnoFertility, which combined with other therapies makes Fertility Therapy a powerful option for those wishing to have the a child of their own without resorting to drugs.

Often old emotional issues are causing the current physical issue. Fertility Therapy can to get to the root of the problem, including stress or depression, and allows the body to heal itself without the use of medication or anything invasive.’ Says Suzanne.

An initial 30-minute consultation is offered free of charge and without obligation. ...Full details
