Danielle – Psychotherapy and Coaching

INTEGRATIVE, TRANSPERSONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY & COUNSELLING is a complete and holistic approach to talking therapy that brings together mind, body and spiritual aspects that importantly contribute to our psychological health and well-being.
Often in life when we experience painful things there is a tendency to run away from the problem, or sometimes even try to ignore it. This can lead to a number of struggles such as depression, anxiety, withdrawal and addiction. By exploring these difficulties in a safe, caring and observant environment, we can gently come to know them and in doing so can shift its hold on our lives and potential for growth. This journey in therapy not only allows us to let go of such difficulties, it also encourages a greater connection with who we really are – because finally we have given a voice to ourselves. This in turn cultivates a stronger sense of ‘self’ and a more conscious connection to the people and world around us.
Areas of specialisms include (but are not limited to); depression, anxiety, post-natal depression & motherhood, childhood trauma and abuse, PTSD diagnoses, relationship issues, self-esteem, self-confidence and emotional regulation.

Finlay – Integral Therapy

INTEGRAL PSYCHOTHERAPY is the application of the five elements of Integral Theory to understand and navigate individual and social problems. Simply put, those five elements are; Perspectives (subjective, objective, collective), Levels of Development, Lines of Competency, States of Experiencing, and Types of Personality. By enquiring and exploring ourselves, our relationships and our situation through these lenses we can recognize the nature of our obstacles, our resistances, our misalignments and our misunderstandings. This leads us to rebalance and integrate our natural powers, capable discernment and opening Heart.

Integral Psychotherapy is not confined to any particular style of intervention, but could include; trauma-focused, psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive behavioural, somatic energetic, multicultural, humanistic, existential, transpersonal and spiritual therapies, coaching and practice guidance.

Finlay is a co-founder and director of The Yoga Hall. He was born on a tea estate in Malawi, studied Mechanical Engineering, Sculpture, Fashion and Textiles, Sound Healing, Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture and Herbs). He teaches Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga and is a Certified Integral Therapist.

Spirit and encourages them to reclaim their own power & use their own intuitive healing abilities, facilitating the release of anything that is no longer serving them…….
Every ceremony is unique to each person.

Post Natal Closing of the Bones Ceremony Inspired by the Mexican tradition the ceremony takes place fully clothed, the Mother lies down and her hands and feet are massaged with Rose Oil, then a ‘closing’ is done by gently wrapping the feet, the legs, the mid-section and the pelvic area (helping to facilitate shrinkage of the uterus, guiding the bones back to their original positioning) the shoulders & chest and finally the cranium. She is then allowed to lie quietly and integrate her experience while the practitioner holds the space. Time is set aside at the end to discuss and interpret anything that arises during the ceremony . Can be performed 6 weeks post partum and beyond.

It rebalances the Energy body, bringing it back to wholeness. Suitable for anyone who wants to reconnect with their own Body’s Wisdom after any trauma, life event or transformation, “endings” or just for when you feel the need to be nurtured.
