Pure Spiritual Healing

 

   PURE SPIRITUAL HEALING is the Divine Science and Art of Balance - the original form of healing that has no limits to what it can achieve. It is gentle and non-invasive, but very powerful. It works on the root cause of any problem to help restore balance and strength to every part of you, including the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It helps to restore  equilibrium to the mind and emotions and gives a wonderful boost to the body's immune system. All that is really needed is an open mind and a willingness to try it for it to be very effective.

  Receiving Pure Spiritual Healing is a very pleasant experience and deeply relaxing. Our professional 
healers are trained to make a connection with the highest Divine Healing Power, working with pure love so that the healing energy flows through the healer into you.
 
What can healing help with?
  The healing energy can achieve anything and will always work for your highest good. Healing will help if you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, rushed or anxious, and if you feel depressed or have panic attacks. Many people have found relief from conditions that traditional medicine finds difficult to treat, such as grief, trauma, addictions, fybromyalgia, M.S., arthritis and cancer. 
It also helps with -

- relationship problems
- blood pressure
- chronic pain or weakness
- diabetes
- back and neck problems....and more

   It is not uncommon for people to find that receiving regular healing helps them release or dissolve deeply buried negative feelings or experiences that have been holding them back from fully enjoying life; and change habitual negative behaviour and unhelpful thought patterns into positive, productive ones - all safely and with no side effects. 

   Pure Spiritual Healing is a totally safe and natural treatment and is complete in its own right. However, many people combine it with treatment from their physician or health advisor and find that the side effects from medically prescribed drugs are reduced and that they heal faster and more completely from operations and surgery. 

   The Centre's healers are also highly trained and qualified to teach proven, effective techniques to use on a daily basis that will empower you to make a positive difference to the way you can feel and how you see and deal with challenging situations.

Please note that appointments are now covered by many health plans.  

Intuitive Counselling      

     We all need at some time in our life to reach out to others for help and there is no shame or weakness in this. Family, relatives and friends can have their part to play, but sometimes we need to go that one step further and seek help from a professional Counsellor - someone who can be completely objective and there for us 100% with no judgement or criticism - only unconditional love, understanding and wisdom.

 

   No two problems and no two people are exactly the same, so an Intuitive Counsellor treats each of their clients as a unique individual and attunes themselves to their particular needs. They understand that problems can make a person feel stuck in a situation, not knowing what else to do  and how to move through and forward from it.

 

   This is where Intuitive Counsellors are so very helpful: they are professionally trained and take the time to listen to you and how you are feeling, asking relevant questions where needed so they can more fully understand your situation and needs.

 

   They then are able to give guidance  on how you can see and deal with the problem in a different way ~ ways you may not of thought of; to see opportunities where perhaps there didn't seem to be any.

 

   Intuitive Counsellors can teach you highly effective tools and techniques which empower you and help prevent or mitigate any negative behaviours, feelings or thoughts that may have contributed to the problem arising, or are holding you back from moving forward in a sustainable way.

 

   Whatever your situation and however hopeless it may seem, there is a way through it. Our Intuitive Counsellors here at the Centre can help you find it. Why not contact Mark or Alexandria Nunn today or when you are ready - we are always here for you, ready, able and willing to help.

   Please note that appointments are now covered by Blue Cross and some other Health Plans

Intuitive Counselling

for Children and Teenagers

 

 

Children

 

   Today's world is a challenging one for us all, including children. There is much more stress and complexity, and the pace of life has sped up. So what can be done to help those who are having real challenges in staying happy, focused, calm and balanced? Well, one answer is for them to receive loving, caring and expert Intuitive Counselling.

 

Children can need counselling for many different reasons; they may, for example need help in developing a voice for themselves; to speak up in an appropriate way and at the right time; to understand themselves; and find encouragement to express their feelings.

 

Parents are often living very hectic and stressful lives, so they may find being that 'ideal parent' a real challenge. Having their children receive help from counselling can be like having a weight lifted from their shoulders.

 

Children's lives are often very busy, with time outside of school full of activities, including lots of screen time. They can need help in managing all of this, and to learn how to switch-off from so many sensory distractions; learning and experiencing the therapeutic effects of quiet times, where their minds are not always active can be really helpful; and to learn simple, effective coping skills to deal with any challenging feeling or events that they encounter. For example, relaxation and concentration techniques that empower them to still their minds and thoughts and to think clearly. All of these things help them to make more sense of their world and prevent or change feelings of anxiety, fear and confusion.

 

Intuitive Counselling also empowers children to understand others, see things from others' perspective and how others might be feeling; they then can become more caring, compassionate and accepting of others and their differences.

 

Teenagers

 

Teenage years are not always easy. It's a time of change where one can feel very uncertain and be looking for a greater sense of identity.

 

They are going through both physiological and psychological changes. There is increased peer pressure and responsibilities to handle. Feelings of self-consciousness can start to develop and emotions can be difficult to manage and regulate.

 

It is often a time for experimenting with drugs, alcohol and a variety of different behaviours that aren't always the healthiest. There is an increasing awareness of sexuality, pressures from social media; a greater need to start making choices that didn't need to be made as a child which can feel overwhelming and confusing.

 

High levels of stress, anxiety, depression and low levels of confidence and self esteem can develop. There can be feelings of anger, frustration, grief, over-sensitivity and a mental withdrawal or 'shutting-down'.

 

Dealing with all of these things can be very challenging and for some can lead to mental health issues and addictions.

 

A professionally qualified Intuitive Counsellor can help teenagers to trust and have confidence in themselves; to manage and channel their energy into healthy and progressive pursuits. An Intuitive Counsellor listens to how they are feeling, with no judgment or reaction; doesn't come across as a voice of authority, but one who can help them see different options and choices that help them solve their challenges, empowering them to manage their life; and teaches effective tools and techniques to prevent and change negative thoughts, feelings and unhelpful behaviours.

Intuitive Counselling is not about trying to 'fix' a person, it is about empowering them to help themselves so they can become who they truly are – an individual who has an important role to play in the world, with their own unique personality, attributes and path in life.

 

Appointments can be in person or by telephone or via Zoom
