Workshops & Classes
**At the moment, due to the Covid-19 crisis, all workshops and classes will be held online. Full details will be posted in due course.**
My apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
I teach regular workshops and classes in Orkney - see below for further details. I am also happy to offer corporate workshops and therapy days, and have run workshops throughout the UK, from small community groups to larger organisations. Many companies now realise the benefit of stress management and my relaxation and stress relief workshops , in particular, can help with this. Equally, many community and voluntary groups are now keen to learn more about relaxation and the effects of stress and I am happy to give talks, informal workshops or guided sessions to facilitate this.
Most workshops are held in my therapy room in Willowburn Road, with details posted on my Facebook page. As spaces are limited, please contact me to book a place or for further information. Workshops are normally on a Saturday, from 2 - 4.30pm and cost £25 which includes a folder with information on all we cover.
One-to-one workshops are also available at a cost of £50.
Mantra & Meditation Classes
Monthly classes for health and wellbeing, combining the powerful benefits of sound healing with healing and relaxing meditations. Classes will be for 11/2 hours and cost £15. Spaces will be limited so booking is essential.
Designed to help us relax and rebalance, as well as offering practical ways to help us restore and maintain health and wellbeing. Each class is stand alone and includes guided meditation, relaxation techniques, elements of yoga and qigong, as well as general health and wellbeing advice and information.
We are all in need of regular reminders to relax and release tension and stress. These classes offer a mixture of simple, easy to learn techniques which can then be practised at home, as well as guided meditations to help our systems rebalance and recharge.
Everyone has encountered Angels in some way, shape or form but few realise they are constantly around and just waiting to be asked for help. They represent healing and supportive frequencies on which we can all draw any time we feel the need. In this workshop, through guided visualisations, colour, crystals and sound techniques, we will learn how to access and work with these energies to help in all aspects of our lives.
Aromatherapy – Home Remedy Chest
Use of essential oils is not restricted to massage! This workshop aims to show you just how many uses they have in our daily lives, from health remedies to housework. Learn which oils are a vital part of any medicine cabinet, how to use them and when to avoid them; discover how to use them safely around the house and garden. As well as covering the many uses and applications of each of the chosen oils, there is also the opportunity in the workshop for practical work and relaxation. (As some of the oils covered are not recommended during pregnancy, this workshop is not advised when pregnant.)
Chakras & the Energy Body
This workshop explains how our energy body and chakra system work and how they affect every part of our lives. As well as practical exercises and meditation, we will learn about each of the seven main chakras and how they resonate with us on all levels - physically, mentally and emotionally. Through meditation, crystals, colours and essential oils we will also discover how to ensure they are as healthy and balanced as possible.
There are several crystal workshops available, ranging from one for those who are relatively inexperienced or need some support in how to make the most of their crystals, to others for those who have been working with crystals for some time and would like to explore new ways of working with them, as well as discovering and learning about more unusual stones. In all workshops, we cover the choosing and care of your crystals, as well as discovering how versatile they are for our own healing. Learn about the properties of our chosen crystals, how to use them for ourselves and others, and practise simple and effective healing techniques. The workshops also include a personal Crystal Oracle reading.
Energy Awareness Workshop
In our day-to-day lives we are faced with many situations which affect us on all levels of our Being. Exposure to electro-magnetic radiation from computers, mobile phones etc; road rage; geopathic stress; negative outbursts from other people; graphic and upsetting images from the media; stressful situations – all can have a profound effect on our mental, emotional and physical health. It is, however, possible to take action to help prevent this. In this workshop, we cover the many situations which can affect us and learn to use a number of simple techniques and tools which can be easily incorporated into our daily lives to minimise these effects.
Relaxation & Stress Relief Workshop
Stress is an undeniable part of everyone’s life nowadays and unfortunately, plays havoc with our health. We need to learn how to restore balance so that the effects are minimal instead of major. It may not be possible to remove the cause of stress, but we can greatly reduce the effect it has on our minds and bodies. This workshop offers practical advice on how to do just that – learn simple, effective techniques, practise them and feel the benefit!
Sound and Spirit Healing
Using a combination of sound and shamanic techniques, this workshop aims to restore balance, improve wellbeing and increase awareness of our inner voice and strengths. The session includes mantra, journeying meditations and working with the healing drum and percussion.
Everything on the planet has a vibration! When we are unwell, feeling out of sorts or generally feel as though our lives are not flowing quite as well as they might, it is due to something affecting our vibrational frequency. This can be absolutely anything but may well include stress of some sort, environmental conditions, emotional trauma or unresolved issues. The good news is that we can do something to redress this and return our bodies to a state of health and wellbeing. In this workshop we use colour, sound, crystals, flower essences and other forms of vibrational healing to do just that.
In this workshop the focus is on you! Using meditation, shamanic journeying and healing techniqes the aim is to learn more about who you are and what you want in life, what makes you happy and how you can achieve your goals. The session offers the opportunity to feel more centred, balanced and in focus so that you can forge your path with confidence and a light step.
Indian Head and Face Massage
The benefits of this therapy have been long accepted, with many people finding it invaluable to alleviate symptoms of stress, hormonal imbalances, headaches, sleep and mood issues, tension and pain. This workshop gives an overview of the therapy, its practice and benefits, as well as practical work on how to give both yourself, and friends and family, a taster of these benefits.
Reflexology has been practised for thousands of years and can be employed on various parts of the body from hands and feet to ears. This workshop focuses on the hands and offers the chance to learn how the techniques can be used at home to help restore balance and support the body's own self-healing mechanisms.
