Animal Assisted therapy within My Exceptional setting involves therapy but with an animal present in the room that is used to add to the calm, safe atmosphere. Our animals are trained to stay calm and relaxed, to bring balance and a sense of security to the room to aid the person in their recovery. It is suitable for people who are comfortable with an animal presence and would benefit from having a positive animal energy. They can either be in the room, or available for reassuring cuddles. It is in addition to the therapy session and over time we plan [...]

Work is such a major part of our lives yet how many don’t enjoy their job? Surely if there was a way that you could enjoy the 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, not to mention all the unpaid overtime, you would grab it? I work with individuals to consider options and choose a path and make that path a positive one, whether you need confidence, direction, motivation, someone to help you see clearly the problems or possibilities and help you to identify solutions. What is it you want and how are you going to achieve it? Need [...]
Loss can come in many forms and people deal with it in different ways. This includes loss of a loved one, be it person or animal; loss of a job or career, loss of health, loss of a relationship or loss of a dream. When the loss and grief are all-encompassing or interfere with the ability to move forwards and function in everyday life then it is time to seek help. The peace that my clients access is truly amazing, weights lifted, grief lessened. This work is not about forgetting, it’s about finding life and finding enjoyment again after loss. [...]
Many people suffer from chronic pain and are on pain killers long-term, even though the effect wore off some considerable time ago. People’s lives can be crippled by pain that has no known cause or cure. Using a range of techniques I enable people to take control of the pain and reduce it, to soften it and to change it into something manageable, something else, to use their brain to control the pain instead of the pain controlling them. Even at the first session people get a sense of relief and can impact the pain using just their minds and [...]
Yep, I got the t-shirt for all of these in my teenage years. Yet I was excellent at hiding them and putting on a mask, a front. I don’t think any of my friends would know that I was too scared to order a takeaway, I was too scared to go to a new exercise class by myself, I turned down many a social invite for fears, all those what if’s floating around my head that I couldn’t control and would run away with my confidence. Using various techniques, I work with people and their fears, anxieties, worries, negative thoughts [...]
As an ex-smoker, 6 attempts where I think I tried everything, every time I stopped smoking I was so jealous of smokers and all I could think about was smoking again, and start smoking again I did. Ultimately it was my mindset that truly changed. On my final attempt I had something significant to move away from and something really great to move towards. I no longer felt jealous of smokers, instead I felt pity that they didn’t have the freedom that I had found. Freedom from smoking is a package of several sessions and by the end you will [...]
I know what it is like to be out of control with eating, I have direct experience and I appreciate the frustrations about what your goal is and how you behave to sabotage your own success. You will develop tools to align your behaviour with your goals, you will be empowered to make these choices more enjoyable and less difficult, to give your will power the support it needs. People with a BMI over 30 could be eligible for gastric band hypnosis which has the same impact as gastric band surgery but without the risks. Need help to lose weight? [...]
