Treatments & Therapies
Is the manipulation of the soft tissue of the body. It helps release emotional and physical tension, relieves pain, promotes healthy circulation, increases the body’s detoxification abilities, improves the action of the digestive system and encourages optimum health. Massage is very beneficial in easing muscle tension, back, neck and shoulder pain and for relieving stress related problems.
Is a technique in which the body’s own healing powers are activated by applying an acupressure-type massage to all areas of the feet and ankles.
The various organs, glands, nerves, muscles and areas of the body are connected with specific reflex areas in the feet and hands. Following illness, injury, stress or disease, the body can be in a state of ‘imbalance’ and the vital energy pathways can become blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively.
Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body’s equilibrium and encourage healing.
It is not a ‘cure’, but it is a fact that patients do attest to improved health and a definite reduction or even disappearance of their problems. The treatment induces deep relaxation, hence relieving stress and tension as well as helping a wide range of conditions, including :
- Back problems
- Hormonal Disorders
- Digestive disorders/IBS
- Skin Conditions
- Panic Attacks
- Stress related problems

Counselling with Jane Bradley Bsc(hons), accredited CAT practitioner & supervisor
Jane is a Psychotherapist and has worked for the NHS Mental Health Services for 24 years. Jane is trained and accredited in various evidenced based psychological therapies including Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT). For more info go to www.acat.me.uk.
CAT is a relational approach that focuses on the way we relate to ourselves and other people.
It can help with a range of difficulties, for example:-
- Experiencing depression
- Having anxiety or low self-esteem
- Feeling repeatedly let down, hurt or rejected, or
- Finding relationships generally difficult
- Experiencing difficulties expressing ourselves assertively
It is based on the idea that as children we may have learnt to cope with difficult situations and feelings, by developing coping strategies which become engrained and which ultimately become problems themselves as they keep us stuck in unhelpful patterns. CAT shows us the way to change these learned attitudes and beliefs about ourselves and others by understanding where they came from and how we can change them. CAT is tailored to your own individual needs and goals and helps you make sense of your own story in your own circumstances. It can be used to make sense of your current struggles in relation to your earlier experiences, or to focus on the here and now.
Jane describes herself as working within the framework of CAT but drawing on a toolkit of skills and knowledge from other models she has been trained in over the years, to arrive at shared understanding and solutions.
