Alexander Technique lessons Alexander Technique lessons at my home. If you are new to the Technique for best results a course of at least 30 lessons.
Counselling I have a Diploma of Counselling and have used this in a charity based setting. This was quite a while ago but as I would like to get my skills back up to speed I will offer my counselling services quite cheaply. Individual counselling, not couples or groups (at the moment). I use an eclectic approach: mainly client centred (Rogerian) with some Gestalt, NLP, psychosynthesis, transactional analysis, and other approaches according to the needs of the situation.

Sleep Counselling for children, young adults or adults with settling/sleep problems. Often these problems are caused by bad habits perhaps you got into during a time of stress, medical problems, shift work. Like all bad habits with work & time it can be broken. You will be given a 2 week sleep diary to fill in, answer a questionnaire & then a programme will be developed for you or your child to follow. It is not a quick fix and one size doesn't fit all. It may have to be tweaked. You will have to be willing to possibly make some changes but hopefully you will have a programme that will get you that good nights sleep. You may find that your problem is due to a medical problem that I am not qualified to fix & I will advise you attend your GP.

Therapy Massage - hand, face, Reiki, Swedish
Would you like to learn Indian Head Massage I am planning to organise a class to teach Indian head massage. After the course you would be able to offer Indian head massage to family and friends. The course would follow the same content as accredited courses and you would be provided with all the written material you needed. I would try to run the course as an on going event so people after the course could continue to come and swap massage and meet new members. I am hoping to keep costs down and run in some kind of community centre so would imagine It would only cost between 2-5 Rekies/£ per 2 hour session. I am open to suggestion and happy if anyone would like to help me teach or organise. Please get in touch if you are interested. Hopeful we could start in November? I also thought it could be a good may to increase LETS membership ?
