Carol – Natural Juice Therapist
Carol Brace is a qualified Natural Juice Therapist. Natural Juice Therapy is accredited by the Complimentary Medical Association and is a course created by 'Juice Master' Jason Vale.
Natural Juice Therapy (NJT) has been around in one guise or another for many centuries. It has been used by some of the world’s most renowned leaders in nutritional therapy for use in the prevention and treatment of disease.
NJT uses the unique blend of healing properties found within the natural juices of fruits and vegetables to aid the body to optimum health. Freshly extracted fruit and vegetable juices furnish the body with the perfect balance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, carbohydrates, anti-oxidants and enzymes.
A Natural Juice Therapist will not diagnose or claim to cure, but will simply present the information and scientific research to support the knowledge that freshly extracted juicing can be extremely beneficial in the treatment of almost every common aliment.
Carol offers 1-1 consultations for approximately one hour or group ‘Juicy Talks’, including juice testing Q&A section.
Caroline - MBACP – Mindfulness and Counselling Therapist
Caroline is an experienced qualified counsellor and mindfulness teacher, who has been meditating for over 25 years. She runs a local private practice, and offers short and long term counselling as well as one-off sessions that focus on specific blocks or concerns.
She runs 8 week mindfulness courses and offers individual sessions, as well as including it as an available tool amongst many in her counselling work.
Much of the time we can find ourselves distracted from truly feeling alive by preoccupation with the past or fears for the future. Mindfulness can take many forms to help settle our busy minds and bring our attention gently to rest on the only moment where life is really happening – the present moment. This is a place in which to rest, to heal, to reconnect with ourselves.
I have particular experience of working alongside depression, anxiety, life threatening illness, work stress and existential issues.
If you are looking to free yourself up to make the most of your stay at Witherdens Hall, you are very welcome check out my website or to contact me direct.
Cost - £50 per hour for an individual counselling or mindfulness session.
A 90 minute mindfulness session for a group of up to 5 people would collectively cost £100.
Carolyn - Acupuncture
Acupuncture is based on the idea of Ki or vital energy, which is thought to move along energy pathways in the body, which are known as meridians. Acupuncturists believe health depends on the flow of this Qi, which can be disturbed by many factors, physical and emotional. The idea is that fine acupuncture needles inserted into these energy channels can release blockages and help restore our body's natural balance and energy flow. Acupuncture can be used for relaxation and also to clear and sharpen the mind.
Carolyn has been in practice since 1996, when she qualified from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine. She uses Acupuncture to painlessly treat a whole range of conditions in both adults and children. It is very effective for muscular skeletal problems, such as frozen shoulders, tennis elbow, back and hip problems and arthritis. It is also very helpful for more internal issues, for example stress, migraines, IBS, anxiety and panic attacks. Carolyn has much experience in dealing with fertility problems, having worked for several years in a private fertility clinic in London, and can help
with unexplained infertility, menstrual irregularities and can offer active support during IVF treatment. Whatever the problem, most of her clients report an increase in general wellbeing as an added bonus from their treatment!
Carolyn also offers Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. Look 10 years younger without resorting to the knife or fillers! Wonderful relaxing treatment to make you not only look a million dollars but feel like it too! Very popular with our guests.
First treatment (1 and a half hours) £60.00, subsequent treatments £50.00
Judith – Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy, sometimes called Clinical Hypnosis, is the use of hypnosis in a therapeutic setting. It’s simply when Hypnosis is used as a healing or life-enhancing treatment. Phenomenal changes can be made in your life through Hypnotherapy. When it’s used correctly, normally with the guidance of a skilled and experienced Hypnotherapist, Hypnotherapy can be an astonishingly quick and effective way of bringing about positive change. And yet, at the same time it’s so surprisingly simple. By guiding you into a state of deep relaxation, hypnotherapy can help to access your deeper beliefs and habits within your subconscious mind allowing us to put in new, powerful and more positive beliefs and habits. It is a powerful tool in the process of positive change!
Loretta – Yoga
Yoga is a restorative process in which we get to know our body more fully – leading to self-understanding and self-healing. During a yoga session we work with body movement and breathing to achieve a calming of the mind.
Loretta graduated in Physiology, from University College, London. This provided her with a detailed scientific perspective of the human body. She then qualified as a Speech and Language therapist.
Following this Loretta worked in a variety of settings with adults and children, where she developed both teaching and therapeutic skills.
Loretta discovered Yoga whilst living in New York at a particularly stressful time. It was a revelation to find a system which works towards bringing ‘wholeness’ to every level of ones being simultaneously. Loretta does not teach a set system; rather, a balanced and thorough approach that can inform and enrich all styles of yoga. Loretta continually works to deepen her understanding of the human organism and interweaves anatomy and yoga in her teaching.
A 1:1 yoga session with Loretta will last one and a half hours and will cost £95. If you would prefer a 2 hour class then it is £120 1:1.
