Counselling & Psychotherapy
Counselling and Psychotherapy can benefit anyone to live a better life and become more aware about their thoughts, feelings and the reasons behind their actions improving their overall mental health at the same time.
You might feel that your problems are trivial, that other people might “have it harder” but someone else’s situation doesn’t define yours. Your experiences and feelings are valid and even if you are lucky enough to have “trivial” problems increasing our self-awareness through the use of talking therapies is the best action of self-love and self-care you can take.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can indeed help with mental health illnesses but they can also help with anger management, grief, anxiety, relationship and sexual difficulties, addiction, depression, mood swings, self-harm, panic attacks and phobias, eating disorders, coping with the effects of abuse, lack of confidence and much more.
The difference between Counselling and Psychotherapy lies in the fact that the former relates more to present problems and aims to find solutions through guidance and support while the latter focuses more on chronic physical and emotional problems and long-term solutions.
Our therapists are trained and qualified to help you express your feelings, understand your thoughts and improve the quality of your life. The therapy session is a safe place where you can be yourself, feel heard, understood and valued.

Hypnotherapy or hypnosis is a therapy that aims to create a state of focused attention under which resistance is removed and we can achieve deep and lasting changes in our lives. Even though there are different types of hypnotherapy, our trained therapists will help you find the best for you and will work with you in agreed ways to ensure you are moving towards achieving your goals.
During the hypnotherapy session you can expect to go into a deeply relaxed state in which your brain will be more susceptible to suggestions. Your therapist will use your agreed methods to persuade you carry on or change old behaviours and mindset. During the session, you will be fully aware and in control. Further, while coming out of this trance-like state, most people feel relaxed and refreshed. For hypnosis to work, you must be willing to be hypnotised and you can come out of the hypnotic state on your own.
It is advisable that people who have psychosis or certain types of personality disorder avoid hypnosis. You can talk with your doctor or with one of our therapists for further information on your suitability.
Our hypnotherapists have a healthcare background with years of experience as psychologists or counsellors and are well equipped to guide you in changing your life.
Our techniques not only cover the most developed in Hypnotherapy and Self-Hypnosis but also take the therapy even further giving you all the tools to identify and tackle any self-imposed limitations you may have. The results aim to be fast and life changing, helping you overcome depression, anxiety and panic attacks.

Onsite Massage & Reiki
We are delighted to announce that our collaboration with Fiora Touliatou, the founder of BNS, has enabled us to provide massage services.
Below is a note from Fiora Touliatou about her services.
What is ONSITE MASSAGE?
Onsite massage, aka seated acupressure massage or chair massage, originates from traditional Japanese acupressure massage which has its principles in Chinese medicine. It has been modified and designed to be performed on a chair in order to bring the benefits of massage into the workplace. It is performed over the clothes on an upright seated ergonomically designed chair and without the use of oils or creams. A typical treatment takes 10, 15 or 20 minutes and targets the areas of the body mostly affected by stress and bad posture: back, neck and shoulders.
What are the benefits?
It is a fact that 70% of illnesses and diseases are caused by stress. It has been estimated that work-related pain costs the UK £5.7 billion every year and more than 1.5 million work days are lost to back pain. Therefore by introducing onsite massage into workplaces, employers are investing into the wellbeing of their staff. The results of this investment are instant as the staff return relaxed, rejuvenated, motivated and more productive back to work. Moreover, it is also a great morale booster for them.
Where can it be performed?
Onsite massage can be performed literally anywhere as the massage chair can be set up anywhere: in conference rooms, break rooms, empty office rooms or cubicles.
What is REIKI?
Reiki means “Universal Life Force Energy” in Japanese. It is a gentle yet powerful ancient energy healing method that can release stress while leaving the client with a feeling of inner calm and joy. During a session, the practitioner channels energy through his/her hands and transfers it to the client. Then, he/she works on the client’s aura (energy field of the body), the 7 major chakras (energy centres) and the 21 minor chakras in order to restore balance and harmony.
Treatments are performed while clients are fully clothed and are a combination of “hands on” (gentle touch) and “hands off” (hands placed on a distance over the auric field and chakras).
A whole treatment usually lasts for one hour and is performed on a massage table. However, for workplaces and events it is adapted and performed on a chair (client is seated) and lasts between 20 to 30 minutes.
