EMMA

WRIGHT

As we are all different and unique beings, some of us benefit most from body relaxation strategies, in the form of massage, shiatsu and reflexology. Other people benefit more from mind relaxation strategies, and I specialise in hypnotherapy, relaxation techniques, mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy. All help to break deeply ingrained and unwanted behavioural patterns and unlock your inner resources. Your aim might be recovery from or prevention of a sports or postural injury, relief from a physical or medical symptom, to improve fertility or simply just to relax. I can help you to free yourself from fear or doubt accumulated in the past. Also to help you to open the door to new possibilities, and see the vitality you hold inside of yourself.
 
Sessions will be tailored to your needs and goals, whether you are looking for body or mind relaxation, or a combination of both. Whilst we work together you are always in control.

JO

HANNAH

My work is rooted in the power of nature and its healing qualities. Nature’s ability to thrive and grow and reclaim manmade structures, is an endless source for my creativity.

To me this process of growth and reclamation becomes a metaphor for one’s own strength over adversity and our ability to heal.

I explore the idea of nature as a force to heal through surface design. I work mainly with stoneware, making slab work and use a variety of glaze combinations and techniques. The bold glazes and the dark black slabs of clay represent a contrast between nature and man.

Nature has always been a source of inspiration for my work and particularly its resilience to overcome the trauma inflicted by man. I often refer to this healing process as a form of “Natural Kintsugi’; nature healing the cracks.

SANDRA

GATES

Studies have shown that physical activity levels tend to reduce significantly after cancer diagnosis and remain low for many years after treatment is completed. From this low baseline there is great scope for exercise interventions to improve the health and well-being of patients with cancer. Cancer diagnosis can signal a “teachable moment” with patients often demonstrating an enhanced motivation to change lifestyle behaviours, especially within the year after diagnosis.
 
More and more evidence points to the fact that even moderate exercise can have very positive results for people with cancer. A systematic review of 33 controlled trials (25 randomised) concluded that exercise interventions during and after cancer treatment can lead to moderate increases in physical function with no evidence of increased symptoms of fatigue or other adverse effects. Several other recent reviews also concluded that exercise has a large potential to improve both physical and psycho-social aspects of quality of life in patients with cancer during and after treatment.
 
Exercise also has been shown to give patients the sense that cancer treatment isn’t just about surgery, drugs and radiation. It gives them a sense that they can do something for themselves, and for some people that is tremendously important.
