Improve Your Life With Powerful Coping Techniques

In Spalding, Crowland, Bourne and Surrounding Areas

Through a combination of Yoga Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, there is a way forward.  Whether you are suffering from any one of a number of life-deteriorating conditions such as stress, anxiety, phobias, eating disorders, low self-esteem, poor body image, addiction and depression, or physical, pain, injury or disease.

Through eastern wisdom, and western science, we can learn to effectively improve every area of our life.

You can begin to release yourself from unhealthy habits and develop new tools and  practices, which will enable you to overcome the damaging long term effects of debilitating physical and mental conditions.

By choosing to work with our bodies and our minds, we are choosing to begin to understand and overcome our (sometimes) hidden fears and anxieties which is an immensely empowering achievement.

Yoga, Mindfulness and Relaxation are all excellent methods for helping to improve or prevent conditions such as stress, anxiety and depression, whilst yoga therapy can be used for specific issues, whether they are physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual, through an approach that combines traditional eastern practices with western scientific evidence.

***********************************************************************************************

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is generally more suited to those who prefer a more western approach in order to address negative thought patterns can be changed into life-enhancing habits that provide a new way forward and effective Self-Management, using a variety of simple but powerful strategies which means you can:

  • Overcome negativities and difficulties that are adversely affecting your life.
  • Leave behind life challenges such as phobias, eating disorders, addictions, anxiety and depression.
  • Make positive changes in your behaviours and responses to stress and specific situations that provoke stress in your everyday life.
  • Deal more effectively with stressors and other issues as they arise in the future.
  • Learn how to confront, challenge and overcome existing negative thought patterns.
  • Become empowered to deal with life more effectively and with greater confidence and belief in your abilities.
  • Improve confidence and communication with your relationships in work and your home and social life.

Using a structured, client-centred approach, focus is predominantly given to current presenting issues and how to resolve the challenges these issues create.

Experience and practice have taught me that a combination of both eastern and western practices tends to be most effective, as this approach offers clients a wider scope of practices and tools with which to adopt an individual and personal way forward.

A regular traditional yoga practice is one that encompasses the long-established  aspects of yoga: asana (physical posture-work), pranayama (breathing practices), relaxation, mindfulness, visualisation, meditation, mudra and mantra gives us the perfect mix to achieve the fundamental aim of yoga: balance in mind, body and spirit.  We come to treasure our precious time on our mat as we delve into our inner world and begin discover all that it has to offer, and develop a better understanding of who we are.  This is the essence of yoga.
