Hello, I offer counselling and psychotherapy to people experiencing personal distress, those seeking greater life direction and anyone who feels talking about a particular situation in a neutral, yet positive setting might be helpful. I work on the basis of seeking to facilitate understanding and insight. This is achieved through careful discussion of whatever it is that is of concern. The process is collaborative and explorative and there is an ongoing attempt to see things in the context of the 'whole person' (rather than the sometimes, limiting lens of the problem). Through this it is realistic to expect relief from troubling thoughts and feelings; greater perspective and clarity and, gradually, an easier relationship with yourself and enhanced capacity to navigate life's ebb and flow. This does however require effort on the part of the individual which may include facing difficulty, a high degree of personal honesty and assuming greater personal responsibility. Throughout my intentions are to create an environment where you will feel respected and supported in exploring whatever it is that you want; to hear and understand you at a level of depth so that in turn you may hear and understand yourself more completely and with greater appreciation; to communicate clearly and straightforwardly so that you are informed and empowered. If this sounds right for you or even if you're curious to know more then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Traditional Thai massage has a long history of therapeutic healing. Its origins go back to India over 2500 years ago, lying in Ayurvedic medicine and yoga. It is often known as Thai yoga massage. Thai massage is a holistic practice working physically on the whole body, and most importantly seeks to rebalance the flow of Prana (life force or Qi) that flows through us– supporting the body’s natural healing abilities, relieving pain and tension. The theoretical foundations of Thai massage are based on energy lines running through the body. When the energy lines become blocked, prana is unable to flow freely. Working on these lines through massage can break the blockages, stimulate the flow of prana, and help to restore general well-being. Blocked energy lines result in aches, pains and discomfort. Thai massage is unlike any other kind of massage. It is a combination of targeted acupressure and gentle yoga stretches, stimulating the energy lines, toning the muscles and tendons and opening the joints. Energising yet deeply relaxing, bringing the body into balance and harmony. It encourages us to slow down and settle into our bodies. It has a spiritual healing dimension and is not just a physical therapy. The massage is suitable for people of all ages and abilities. It can be varied to suit a wide range of physical needs, and can be used as a form of physical therapy to help increase range of motion and muscular strength. The client is fully clothed with the massage taking place on a mattress on the floor. Thai massage can help: • Back pain • Joint pain • Headaches/migraines • Stress and anxiety • Flexibility • Circulation • Digestion • Restore well-being Thai massage will be available at Axis Therapy from March 2015 For more information or to book a massage contact Tracey on 01766 770610 or 07809485323
