Debbie Nash - Bowen treatments

Debbie Nash

  • Bowen Technique

I am an Alternative Therapist fully qualified in Bowen E.C.B.S Cert 2005, a Hatha Yoga teacher working with the mind, body & soul & a Reiki Master using universal divine healing energy.

I believe we all have the ability to self-heal with a little assistance. Our bodies can become unbalanced caused by dis- ease within the body. Treating the body as a whole is the key. There's many alternative therapies Bowen being one of them.

Bowen realigns using pressure points & rolling over soft tissues. It's not invasive, very gentle suiting everyone even babies & the elderly There's no manipulation. Bowen also works muscular skeletally and on cell memory often long after an injury has recovered you can still feel the pain due to the cell remembering the pain. So Bowen clears the cell memory. Most pain is the result of an emotional disturbance coming out within the physical body.

Pop along and visit for a Bowen I would love to meet you.

You Can Heal Your Life Louise Hay Workshop Teacher
BSc (Hons) Psychology

  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
  • Intuitive Coaching
  • Guided Meditation
  • Angel Reading

Channelled meditations guided by the Angels are a powerful but lovingly gentle way to help shift elements, areas, experiences and issues in your life. They are suitable for novices, those who have difficulty meditating, and those experienced in meditating. During the meditation, you may for example, feel peaceful and relaxed, lighter inside yourself, as if a weight has been lifted. These feelings are a reflection of the shift of energy within you.

In an Angel Reading, Fiona will connect and communicate with the Angels on your behalf to bring through messages of guidance, support and comfort. These readings tend to be more spiritually intuitive than predictive.

Intuitive coaching programmes include: How to Get Your Angels to Help You; Enhance and Strengthen Your Communication and Connection with Your Angels; Increase Your Inner Strength, Self Confidence, Self-Worth and Self Esteem; and Opening Yourself to Love.

Sara French

Sara French

MBACP

  • Person Centred Counsellor

A qualified therapist with over 20 years experience; I aim to provide an opportunity for you to work towards living in a more satisfying and resourceful way.

Therapy, for me, is not so much a way of finding out or interpreting what went wrong as it is an attempt to reach you person to person and offer you a relationship within which you feel safe, heard and cared for.

When a person experiences this genuine, empathic relationship problems and confusions, symptoms and stuck-ness begin to ease. Increased consciousness, insight, understanding and self-esteemreveal the way forward.

I specialise in supporting people who are faced with change in their circumstances personally and/or professionally. Some changes such as a relationship break up can challenge our view of ourselves and cause symptoms that interfere with everyday life. People often need support to come to terms with how things are now.

I offer on-going short and long term counselling and one-off sessions.

  • Zero Balancing

Zero Balancing encourages energy and structure to reorganize, integrate and reach zero - a perfect point of balance and harmony in the body. It is a gentle, yet most powerful, method of releasing accumulated tension and rebalancing nervous energy in the deepest structures of the body.

Zero Balancing works with the energy of bones, and especially the foundation joints of the whole body, using gentle touch and stretches to release deeply held patterns which restrict free movement. It can also be adapted for the organs and soft tissues where needed, and regularly includes the bones of the head and face. Zero Balancing eloquently communicates a sense of well being that can be profoundly affirming and validating, and is deeply satisfying to those who receive it.

My training began over ten years ago and in that time I have found that Zero Balancing can address a wide range of conditions ranging from physical discomfort, emotional stress and anxiety, and can offer support through times of transition and change. I have worked with a wide range of people of all ages including children with autism and learning difficulties, people who are sick and those who are well and simply want to enjoy life to the full. People love this treatment, which eases the body and calms the mind. It works effectively through clothing. Many come simply to relax, find relief from a variety of conditions, and to come home to themselves. Regular Zero Balancing can lead to a deeply embodied sense of peace.
