I take a holistic approach to your challenges and use a combination of non-medical and extensively researched and successful techniques and tools from the treasure chest.
Several of the techniques and principles I apply were learnt during my Calmology (created by Sandy Newbigging) studies and resulted in me becoming a Certified Calmologist by Sandy Newbigging. Calmology is an accredited Qualification with the Federation of Holistic Therapists. It focuses on the mind-body connection, builds your awareness of how your emotions, thoughts and feelings impact your entire being, including your physical and mental health.
My methods are also complemented where appropriate with Breathing techniques such as the breathing educational tool (CapnoTrainer ®)* which encourages better breathing. Better breathing provides many benefits, particularly around balancing the Autonomic Nervous System that manages amongst other things, our levels of arousal, energy, blood pressure, heart rate, heart rate variability and the digestive system.
I also use a range of easily accessible techniques and practices including mindfulness and meditation tools, which you can use to help with your current issues and build into a longer-term practice to help you maintain your improvements.
The toolkit available to us is varied and enables a flexible approach as the journey and various signposts are discovered. Some concentrate on the physiological aspects and others on the mind, but ultimately, they are all looking to heal and improve the relationship between our Mind, Body and Life. All the tools are aligned to the physiological branch of biology and supported by scientific research studies.
Mind Calm – Enabling Peace with the Mind and providing techniques and practices for maintaining the peace at every given present moment.
Mind Detox – Discovering and resolving historical unconscious inhibitors in all aspects of life including relationships, career and financial matters to improve your physical and mind health

Stoan Method – helps you see what is possible. Picture your most meaningful life, then day by day, live it.
Breathing Practices – educational and monitoring tools to help with connecting and being aware of our breathing patterns and improving them. Connecting with the breath provides a foundation for many of the approaches and techniques we will undertake because it has a direct relationship with your nervous system.
