We are experienced professionals working in the caring professions
As already long established professionals in our own fields, we have sometimes been quite concerned at how credible some practitioners in those fields can sound, while in reality having very little actual training or absolute minimum or basic qualifications - a certificate for a few hours' study which makes it sound like a comprehensive training, and which confers the right to put pretty meaningless letters after the trainee's name - in the areas in which they are offering help.
We want to assure you, therefore, that this practice is underpinned by professional training - we have all completed a minimum of 4 years' training in our core profession, together with significant training spanning months of study and practise in our secondary fields of expertise - and ongoing continuing professional development. Together, we have been in professional practice for over 35 years. We therefore bring many years and enormous experience to our work with you.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a small group of established professionals whose combined backgrounds in various areas of physical, mental and emotional well-being and healthcare spans over 35 years, and whose combined wealth of expertise and experience includes psychotherapy, counselling, nursing, teaching, mental health support and training, working with children and adults with special needs, university lecturing, coaching and mentoring, and pharmaceutical research. Our credentials
What brings us together is a concern about holistic well-being
Although in some ways our backgrounds are diverse, there is also a common thread which runs through it all and which links us together. That thread is about sharing a concern about well-being in general; about seeing human beings as being multi-faceted, made up of mind, body, emotion and spirit; and about believing that unless and until the whole person is being treated, rather than a mere aspect of who they actually are, real and lasting and total well-being is going to be out of reach.
It is because we hold these things to be so central, so fundamental, that we were drawn first to holistic practices ourselves, then to train in those therapies, and finally to wish to offer the same holistic approach through ~ UNIVERSAL ENERGY WORKS ~
In our professional and personal lives we have seen first hand both the cost to fellow human beings when they are treated as if they are their condition or illness rather than their illness is simply a part of them. We have also witnessed the renewed hope, energy and transformation which comes from being treated as a complex human being and having our humanity seen, understood and validated.
We have witnessed how freeing, how truly liberating it is, to take back control and start making our own decisions about who we want to be and how we want to live.
HOW WE BECAME INVOLVED WITH ENERGY HEALING
For each of us, our first experience of energy therapy was of receiving Reiki treatments for our own health. Aswell as being pretty amazed at how powerful and effective treatments were, we were also astonished to discover all the extra benefits that came with them. We had hoped to find some relief from symptoms, but we had not expected to feel so calm, so peaceful, so energised, or to find our sense of clarity and purpose and ability to make clear choices so positively affected.
Treatments became something we actively looked forward to because we knew just how deep the relaxation we were going to experience would be. After a few treatments, we found we reached that state of peace increasingly quickly and easily, and began to really notice the flow of energy in and through us, the sense of tingling and heat from the practitioner's hands, and began to better understand just what holistic treatment was about.
OUR OWN DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING
We are professionally accredited and registered psychotherapists, counsellors, pharmaceutical research scientists, medical and mental health workers, who have already accumulated a significant number of years of experience in those fields, who have then gone on to further training.
We already offer:
In addition to the considerable professional experience we already possess, we have also undergone training and development in the following forms of energy healing:
We are also experienced in both the practice and teaching of:
We never stand still or become complacent
We continue to pursue continual professional development and ensure that we remain abreast of latest cutting edge research and practice. We are members of relevant professional regulatory bodies, and operate within the ethical frameworks of those bodies. These include TRA (The Reiki Association) and IARP (International Association of Reiki Practitioners), BHMA (British Holistic Medical Association) UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). We are in the process of being approved by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) which recognises complementary and holistic therapists working to approved NHS professional standards.
HOW TO CHOOSE WHICH OPTION TO GO FOR
What we can offer you
We want you to be the best you can be, and we think that's probably what you want too.
Help in identifying ways forward
Trouble is, sometimes we can't see beyond our own perception of what's possible until someone helps to step outside that and taste something new and different. We know what we don't want, but we can't see how to gAnother problem can sometimes be that we can see a number of ways forward, but they are all in different directions. So we want to get fit and healthy, improve our relationships, make more space for the important things in our lives, free ourselves from some of the negative influences around us, and so on, and so on. But the list seems so huge and overwhelming, and seems to involve so many different bits of us. It just feels too complicated.
Help to take that all important step
A different kind of problem entirely an be that we have a pretty clear idea of what we want, but we know we don't want to do it or go there on our own. We want companions on the journey, and others who know the way.
OUR SEVICE INTEGRATES:
What makes us pretty unique
It is rare, in an age of specialists who very largely operate from one particular model, or one set of beliefs, to find a group of trained and experienced professionals who have embraced in considerable depth a number of related specialisms in the way in which we have.
It is even more rare to find a group of such specialists who comfortably and from deep conviction operate from both a scientific and spiritual standpoint, and who properly understand the multi-dimensional nature of human beings, and the importance of that in promoting and maintaining well-being. Whatever name we give to it, the energy which fills the universe and connects all things, Life Force Energy, is
We embrace the science without losing the spirituality
Perhaps most importantly of all, we embrace the science without losing the spiritual. We practise what we preach, if you like. We understand the theory behind holistic energy medicine and healing practice, embrace the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual realities of what it is to be a complex and multidimensional being, and understand that we human beings are far more, and are capable of far more, than we ever previously thought possible!
