Meet the Practitioners

Lauren

I am an integrative counsellor bringing elements of cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, gestalt, creativity and humour into my sessions. My practice is underpinned by inclusivity and a person-centred approach, and I believe in the healing qualities of nature and bring this to my practice, both working in a therapy room and in walk and talk sessions. I work with both teenagers and adult clients. I have a holistic approach to wellbeing and am currently training to be a TRE (Trauma Release Exercises) Practitioner. In addition to my private practice I work therapeutically with young people in care and for a youth charity.

Christine

I began studying homeopathy in 2003 and went on to qualify in Vega Testing, Nutrition and Reiki to develop different ways to help people with healing.

I’m happy when I’m learning so I attend regular continuing professional development events and also any workshops that take my fancy.

I live with my husband and our rescue collie and have a higgledy-piggledy blended family who live all over the country and whom I cherish dearly.

I love the beach, whatever the weather or tide, and countryside walks even if it’s sticky and muddy. I also relish quiet times by the fire with a good book and mellow music.

I aim to help people see new possibilities for health in mind and body and to assist them on their path to wellness.

JAIME VAN WEEDE

Person Centred Counsellor.

I trained as an integrative counsellor and primarily work in a person centred way, bringing in other modalities depending on the needs of the client. 

I know what it feels like to be anxious. I spent many years feeling out of place in the world and thinking everyone else must have it sorted. The road that led me to decide to train to be a counsellor was challenging and I can truly empathise when clients tell me they feel worried, anxious, lost, lonely, scared, vulnerable, confused.  
We are all on our individual journeys and there are times when it can be helpful to share and talk through some of the issues that arise along the way. I can offer short or long term counselling and I also offer a free initial session so that we can meet and decide whether we feel we could work together. I work with both adults and young people. As a parent myself, I recognise the complexities of the anxiety experienced by many young people. I have a personal interest in neurodiversity and I work with both adults and young people on the autistic/ADHD spectrum.

KIOWA 

Kiowa is a multi-instrumental intuitive sound alchemist, music mentor and facilitator. Inviting playful self discovery and connectivity in his group practice of Circle Music Medicine. He believes we all hold a golden thread of the great universal weave and endeavours to encourage the unlocking of our full creative potential and expression, together.

Through voice activation, vibrational acupuncture, tuning of subtle energy, body mindfulness meditation, qigong, intentional breath, dream weaving and more, he holds an intuitive space for self realisation and activation. As we grow we store memories and energy in our bodies, sometimes these no longer serve us, so they await the right moment for actualisation and release. Kiowa holds a safe container for this alchemic expansion. Whether in a joyful & playful form or a deeper dive into one’s own inner world.

His own journey to health and wholeness has not been easy. Since infancy he was a test subject of the mis-treatment of western medicine. When the best professionals of western medicine failed to serve his body’s highest good he had to take his healing into his own hands. After a long and difficult transformative journey of 7 years his knowledge has deeply expanded regarding multiple chronic inflammatory dis-eases which were considered irreversible. He now teaches from this place of lived-experience to shine light on the parts of us calling for love and healing.

JANE

Transformative Coaching

I am an ICF/EMCC/AC Accredited Transformative Coach and Management Consultant who has dedicated 26 years to empowering and mentoring individuals in unlocking their potential and navigating through life’s transitions towards personal and professional fulfilment. My coaching philosophy centres around strategic questioning, deep listening, authentic connection, and the belief that every individual has an inherent ability to overcome challenges and create their desired realities. My key strength is to stimulate clients’ paradigm shift towards re-evaluating their experiences from a fresh perspective, challenging limiting beliefs, and stepping into new, empowering narratives. With presence, intuition and compassion, I strive to create clarity in the midst of confusion, achieving increased self-understanding and making significant changes in their lives.

Transformative coaching is distinguished by holistic focus on all aspects of life, including emotional management, relationship dynamics, career advancement, and personal values. This comprehensive approach not only enables clients to identify goals, overcome personal roadblocks, and create concrete solutions to achieve their aspirations, but also enhances their self-discovery, innate resilience, and true values. I provide a non-judgemental, collaborative and confidential space that is client-led focusing on thoughts, beliefs, values, goals and challenges that seeks to evoke greater insight on multiple dimensions.

Life is a journey.

MEILEEN DAVANGER

I have a love for children and education as a school teacher, I am a mother of two grown-up daughters, and moved to Totnes from Norway seven years ago. For the past four years I have been a full-time end-of -life carer, which opened my eyes and inspired me to learn as much as possible about the ageing process and how to build my own health and happiness.

You are the healer in your life, nobody else can take on the responsibility for what you have created and how you will transform your health. But i’m here to assist. Since I started learning Hawaiian massages at the age of 23, the Huna philosophy has become the backbone of how I see reality connected through body, mind, emotion and spirit. I since then have learned from teachers in Ayurveda, naturopathic nutrition and Chinese daoist energy work and medicine.

I offer Lomi Lomi massages, Chi Nei Tsang abdominal detox massage and Living Nutrition Consultations. I give talks, run online cleansing retreats and facilitate a weekly Qigong class. Book a 15 min free consultation for us to understand what you need and how I can help.

Sarah

Energy Healing– Chakra Alignment

Sarah Kiaer grew up in Denmark, where she took an early interest in energy healing and a holistic way of looking at well being and health.

She trained at The Scandinavian Healer School in Copenhagen and has since developed an approach to healing that tunes into our connection to Gaia, our heart centre and the divine aspects of our being. Through her work with energy points, light, colours and lately sound, the chakras are brought into alignment, and the body is then in a state where healing can take place.

Energy healing can help with a variety of conditions, including dealing with stress, aiding relaxation and well being. After an initial consultation and healing session, she will put together a personalised routine, focusing on energy exercises and affirmations.

 

Aly Whitley

RMN Dip (ITEC) NHF

Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist. I provide a mobile phlebotomy service and use live and dried blood analysis in my consultations.

The blood is our life force. It delivers nutrients and oxygen, hormones and neurotransmitters, and has many other functions, to 40 trillion cells, the cells that we are made of. We have 60,000 miles of capillaries and the blood circulates the entire body every 3 mins.

Darkfield Microscopy looks at dried and live blood samples magnified by 1000x. We can observe the health and state (terrain)of the blood at that particular time, which will give indications along with an in depth consultation about the health of the person and what needs to be done first.
If we want optimum physical and mental performance from our body we need to ensure our cells are equipped with the right tools.
