  • Grainne O'Brien

    Therapeutic & Sports Massage is for everyone who has aches, muscle soreness, injuries or just simply enjoys a massage that concentrates on specific areas of tension.

    Therefore I am able to adjust and use techniques that will meet the needs of the client and am constantly wanting to improve my practise and add to my skills, working with the client to meet their treatment goals.

    Here are some of the techniques used:

    • Classical Strokes; Effleurage, Kneading
    • Stretching
    • Muscle Energy Technique
    • Soft Tissue Release
    • Trigger Point Therapy

    I am also a Paediatric Occupational Therapist with 20 years experience which has given me hands on and in-depth knowledge of the function and movement of the body.

    I like to keep fit and healthy through regular swimming, yoga and walking.

Counselling

  • Richard Goodall

    Richard Goodall

    I work as Person Centred Counsellor and Supervisor.

    Connecting into a therapeutic relationship can seem frightening and too vulnerable a place to step into.

    And yet, taking the courage to step into that relationship may lead to a new sense of who you are.

    How much do you want your past to determine your future?

    What gets in the way of you being who you want to be?

    Give me a call or check out my website: www.wildmantalking.com

Hypnotheraphy

  • Mandy Hooley

    Mandy Hooley

    Clinical Hypnotherapist & EFT Practitioner

    I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist registered with both the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CHNC) and the General Hypnotherapy Register.

    General Medical Council guidance to doctors confirms that they are able to refer patients to practitioners on accredited registers – this includes all CNHC registrants.

    I work with my clients to help provide a natural and effective way of helping with many problems, including the following:

    • PTSD
    • Sleep problems
    • Anxiety
    • Fears and phobias
    • Self esteem
    • Confidence in public speaking
    • Sport performance enhancement
    • Past Life Regression
    • Inner Child
    • Unwanted behaviours and habits

    I am also a Certified Hypnoslimmer Consultant – a proven method of changing your relationship with food, and therefore easily and naturally reducing your shape and size. The Hypnoslimmer programme is 4 weekly sessions and includes the “virtual gastric band surgery”.

    I have seen some truly fantastic results for the many clients I have worked with, and unlike “slimming clubs”, there are no calories to count, no syns or forbidden foods. In fact, no diet at all. You can eat whatever you like.

    The best bit is that you don’t even have to weigh yourself – If I told you that you for example, that you could be 2 clothing sizes smaller and still be the same weight…. you would be happy with that … wouldn’t you?

    I am qualified to work with everyone from the age of 5 upwards, but I have chosen to work only with adults.

    EFT

    EFT is very much like acupuncture but is totally none invasive. I use EFT alongside Hypnosis where it is appropriate.

    I offer a free initial consultation, usually by telephone. This will allow both you the client and myself to ensure hypnotherapy can help you.

    I will be available by appointment at Belper Natural Health Centre on Thursday each week for therapy, but you can call me anytime for a telephone consultation prior to booking at Belper.
