Pavilion Therapists & Instructors
Counselling and Health Coaching integrated with EFT and other Energy Psychology approaches along with mindful embodied self-awareness and compassion.
I offer my work because I know from experience what it takes to transform a life. I have a gentle, safe, mature, approach founded on many years of professional trainings in nursing, counselling, health coaching and energy psychology. The roots of most of our physical and emotional suffering are stored in the cells of our body creating thoughts, feelings and stress in our nervous system. Much of this is caused by our life experiences and the self -beliefs that we have. This results in difficulties physically and emotionally. Talk therapies alone cannot get to the underlying causes of what limits us as they are encoded in the body as well as the mind. My integrated approach leads to more emotional balance, resilience and physical wellbeing.
I offer free 30 minutes ‘Way Forwards’ conversations to discover together whether I can support you.

Soft Tissue and Sports and Remedial Massage Therapists
I am a qualified as a Sports Therapist and Fitness Trainer as well as level 5 Soft Tissue Therapist with over 25 years experience. I have lived and worked in The Alps and Pyrenees, as well as the West Coast of France, which has allowed me to make the most of my enjoyment of mountain sports and life on the coast. Formally a ski instructor and swimming teacher, I understand the progression through sport and exercise from beginner to expert.
I have worked with athletes and personalities in the worlds of MotoGP, World Superbikes, Formula One, as well as with rugby, gymnastics, skiing, snowboarding, surfing, and golf – at all levels. Asides from working in the world of sports, I have helped people from all walks of life in search of sports and remedial massage; as a result of the stress and strains of work and day-to-day living.
Working in a busy solicitor’s office part time, I have a real understanding of the stresses and strains that the body undergoes whilst sat at a desk for long hours of work and as such focus on helping my clients understand any posturally related stresses and strains with a focus on self awareness.
Soft Tissue and Sports and Remedial Massage Therapists
I am a qualified as a Sports Therapist and Fitness Trainer as well as level 5 Soft Tissue Therapist with over 25 years experience.
I’ve spent a number of years working abroad, in The Alps and Pyrenees as well as the West Coast of France – whilst actively pursuing my love of the mountains and sea. During this time, I ran and oversaw a luxury hydrotherapy centre and gym as well as treating top athletes and personalities in the fields of MotoGP and World Superbikes, to professional Football, Skiing, Snowboarding, Enduro, BMX, and downhill mountain biking. This also includes long-distance runners, rugby players, surfers, golfers and those in search of massage for aches and pains from activity, work, or life in general.
As an asthma sufferer, I understand the importance of keeping the muscles involved in respiration in good condition, and can easily relate to the postural difficulties caused by this condition. I am very focused on helping my clients find lasting solutions to their aches and pains and performance. I use a number of soft tissue techniques as well as cupping and taping as required.
Counsellor/Mental Health Worker
I have extensive experience working as a Counsellor and Mental Health Practitioner in both short and long-term arrangements within a charity organisation and the NHS. I can help you find ways to promote helpful perspectives and solutions. Having a professional Counsellor to listen with empathy whilst honouring a person’s unique individual experience is hugely beneficial to finding answers and healing.
I have always had a passion for health and well-being and hold a positive view of mental health, thereby striving to work alongside you at your own pace. I trust that a human being has their answers and ability to self-heal given the right conditions. I offer a safe and confidential space that fosters creativity, personal growth, and individual autonomy.
I ensure to conduct myself professionally and consistently analyse my strengths and weaknesses. Clients have found me to help support and improve depression, anxiety, stress, grief, low self-esteem, low mood, effects of trauma, gaining different and renewed perspectives and direction, negative thoughts and working positively through relationship issues.

“My interests in behavioural change and mental health have guided my current thinking on effective interventions that promote personal and social transformation. Enabling creative pathways can transform lives and create positive options for current and future behaviour.”
By learning new skills through engaging your imagination in a collaborative, progressive, therapeutic relationship and adopting the hypnotic mindset, akin to being absorbed in a good book or film, you can expect to achieve goals that have previously felt out of reach. I hold a PhD in Psychology, an MA in Psychotherapy and am an accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist (General Hypnotherapy Register). I also hold an enhanced certificate.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that can be used in many areas of life to achieve good outcomes. It has been shown to be successful in pain relief, IBS, anxiety, childbirth, depression, phobias, sports and academic achievements, ideal weight achievement, self-esteem, confidence, sleep difficulties, smoking cessation and many other areas.
I have worked as a counsellor for the past 10 years. Through this time, I have developed an effective means of supporting clients in crisis. I specialise in obesity depression, anxiety and addictions.
Working Humanistically means clients can explore their whole life experience, rather than singular blocks, particularly combining the past ,present and future if needed instead of concentrating on one specific area, helping you to gain a more complete understanding of the underlying issues related to these difficulties. My experience of working with clients over a 9 year period has shown me that this is one of the most effective methods of fostering lasting change.
You may have considered counselling as a way forward, but have been unsure of what it involves. Taking the steps to find a counsellor could be one of the most important, and possibly life changing decisions you will make.
I am Lucy and I have been a counsellor since 2010.
Why counselling? You may be experiencing thoughts and feelings that are causing you distress and preventing you from living a full and grounded life. Speaking with someone who is not part of your family gives you the space to be truly heard and by developing a strong counselling alliance we can focus on specific issues in the broader context of your everyday life.
I work as an integrative counsellor which means that I use different theoretical approaches and I am a member of the BACP. I have experience of working with clients through Bereavement and Loss, Low self-esteem, Anger, Trauma, Abuse, Anxiety, Depression, Covid related issues such as Social isolation and loneliness, End of life issues and Lack of Confidence.
Working in nature, in a natural environment can be particularly beneficial. I am increasingly working outside in a natural setting and offering clients the opportunity to discover the emotional, psychological and physical benefits of outdoor therapy. Contact me if you have any questions or would like to arrange an introductory session

Shari A. Jessie
Person-Centred psychotherapy and counselling
Person-centred psychotherapy and counselling is grounded in the idea that people are self-motivated to ‘live their best lives’ if the conditions around them are supportive. When relationships have empathic understanding, genuine and authentic communication, and acceptance of the other person, people feel more inclined to be honest to themselves about themselves and to seek new and more constructive ways of living.
I am an American born and US/UK trained person-centred therapist and I have wanted to help people in some way for as long as I can remember. I provide a confidential, empathetic and non-judgmental, but also honest and real space for you to explore what’s going on for you. You take the lead in the work that we do together, and I will adapt my practice to meet your individual needs.
I am a registered member of the BACP which means that I adhere to their guidelines, ensuring I work with you in a committed, confidential, and ethical way. I approach my practice with sensitivity, humour and compassion. Being a part of your journey to feeling and living the way you want would be my absolute privilege. Let’s work together to figure out what’s getting in the way of that.
I offer a free 15 minute initial consultation to see if we could be a good fit. So, please get in touch.

Homeopath & Bioresonance Practitioner
Lic,SDSHom,CTHa,Dip Paediatric Homeopathy
I qualified as a licenced homeopath over 15 years ago at The South Downs School of Homeopathy. I then completed a further year’s training in Paediatric Homeopathy. I am also a Bioresonance Practitioner, I use the Quantum Scio, which is a health screening system which helps in giving indicators as to the imbalances in the body. e.g vitamin deficiences. I love what I do and am passionate about helping others to have a happier and healthier life.
Homeopathy is used to treat many different health issues including if you are feeling generally unwell, run down or lethargic, feeling your off balance or off quilter. Homeopathy does not interfere or conflict with allopathic medicines and works well alongside conventional medicine. I combine the Quantum SCIO Bioresonance and Homeopathy when treating patients. Some patients prefer homeopathic treatment on its own and some come and see me for the Quantum SCIO Bioresonance, e.g to test for allergies, vitamin and allergy deficiencies.
I treat adults aswell as new born infants and children. As a Paediatric Homeopath, I often work with both parents and children. If you would like to have homeopathic treatment for your family, we can work out a package that suits you and your family.

Electrologist – Permanent hair removal
Hello, I am Leah and I specialize in permanent hair removal through the use of Electrolysis. As someone who has suffered from unwanted hair, I fully understand the embarrassment and anxiety it can cause. However, it was not until my teenage daughter starting showing signs of anxiety from having problems with facial hair that I started to look into permanent hair removal.
After trying a number of different treatments with varying degrees of failure we eventually discovered electrolysis. The results were amazing and within a few months most of the unwanted hairs on her face were significantly reduced and best of all, not growing back.
At the start of the treatment we were living in Canada and on coming back to England, finding an electrologist capable of achieving consistent results was very difficult. I decided there was a real need to provide a high quality and sympathetic electrolysis service for permanent hair removal nearer to home and that is how my journey into Electrolysis began.
I know first-hand the anxiety and embarrassment that unwanted hair can cause and will do everything in my power to help you achieve your goals within a safe, caring and relaxed environment.

I qualified with a BA (Hons) in Humanistic Counselling in 2011. I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a qualified and experienced clinical supervisor undertaking one to one and group supervision sessions.
I have a person-centred approach and I believe that we each have the innate ability to move forward but at times, accessing this ability can feel impossible. Thinking about having counselling is a major and sometimes daunting first step but is a brave move forward. Mental health can be fragile, but in therapy, by gaining an understanding of how we work as individuals and what may be going on for us internally can be illuminating and help us to grow. I see the counselling relationship as a journey made together to explore, discover and to unearth hidden resources. Working creatively with words, art and nature can also support change and re-ignite hope.
I have a wide experience of working with trauma, both with adults and young people. The impact of trauma often goes unacknowledged and is misunderstood by others. Additionally, I work in the areas of loss, abuse, relationships, anxiety, eating disorders, self harm and depression.
Fabeauty Massage and Beauty Therapist
MSc Health Psychology
I am a sexual health promotion specialist focusing on the wider aspects of sexual wellness, addressing concerns and issues beyond pathology, risks, and illness.
My decision to specialise in sexual and reproductive health promotion is deeply rooted in my own personal experiences growing up in Hungary. I grew up without any sexual health education or any form of enlightenment about sexual matters. My parents did not engage in conversations with me about any topic that is even remotely related to sexuality or sex itself – which is still the reality for a lot of children.
I am truly excited to be involved in the Pavilion project. I have various educational workshops covering different topics that are fun and engaging with the sole purpose of enhancing your sexual wellbeing.
SDSHom. Registered Homeopath
Remedy Room Homeopathy
To me, health is when your body, mind and emotions are balanced and in harmony. Sometimes we are off balance and symptoms manifest as indicators of our dis-ease.
I have a passion for Homeopathy. I’ve seen, time and again, how effective it is in helping restore my patients’ health and put them back on the right track. I enjoy talking to people and learning about what makes them tick – these two things are inextricably linked and at the very core of Homeopathic practice. Homeopathic remedies are made from naturally occuring sources, such as plants and minerals, that promote healing at the core of the issue. Following consultation, your remedy is individually selected for you and stimulates your own body, to help heal itself and restore balance. Safe to use at all ages and life stages, Homeopathy is a non-toxic and non-addictive treatment that can be used alongside conventional medicine.
I like that this gentle form of medicine gives my patients the option to take responsibility for their own health, and not, to solely rely on pharmaceutical drugs. It really is a holistic approach to wellness and I look forward to meeting you!

I became a Qualified British Wheel of Yoga Teacher in 2003. Since then I have added Pregnancy and Post Natal, Back Care and Meditation Qualifications. But I never stop learning and developing. I regularly attend First Aid refreshers, Specialist Yoga Courses and more recently Kundalini Classes.
Yoga is over 3,000 years old and is growing stronger the world over. There is a style and type of yoga to fit everyone. I believe people just need to find a great teacher and style for what they need and want. My personal take on Yoga is that it should ALWAYS be Comfortable, Caring and Kind. Our bodies are the precious vessels that carry the Mind, Spirit and Breath. We need to Love and Care for the body, as it is our first and last home. Breathing, Stretching and Meditating should never be difficult.

I came across yoga and meditation in 1997 which ignited my passion for Self Growth and Self Realisation. I was driven by a sense of knowing that the incessant chatter of the monkey mind, with all the suffering it brings was optional, and that happiness, peace and freedom were much better choices! In 1999 after several months of experiencing Kundalini Rising, my path to serving others out of their suffering accelerated and has since had the blessing to learn several enlightened teachers.
I partner with clients to use their core energy to find freedom from imbalances such as anger, negative stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, money blocks, PMT, menopause, headaches, monkey mind, PTSD, digestive issues etc, and increase vitality, prosperity, resilience, confidence and harmony.
I am committed to getting clients deep and lasting results using a combination of Kundalini Yoga and Therapy, The Direct Path, Core Energy Coaching and Leadership, IPEC CPC, ELI-MP, Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Life Style and Nutrition Analysis, Sound and Energy Healing. I work with the principle that Self Mastery and Self Realisation are our natural state of being, and just need to be uncovered.
My classes take influences from buddhism and hinduism as well as from other tribal cultures providing powerful insights to living a life more connected to each other, our energy and the planet. Classic yoga sequencing, preparation for postures with a general emphasis on breath work and alignment feature in each class. Where possible bringing in additional movements to these postures from kundalini yoga and qi gong that help us connect to the flow of prana, qi (chi) or sami in and around our bodies. Encouraging us to re-connect to our senses and expand these beyond our physical bodies and back out into the world around us.
Workshops and some classes have drumming, meditation, cleansing and rattling. Including connecting to certain areas of the body (heart intelligence, pineal gland, gut instinct) as well as focusing on elements in nature (earth, water, air, fire, spirit). Workshops also include themes of journeying to non-ordinary reality (lower, middle and upper worlds). All helping to raise our awareness and bring balance to our lives and bodies.
I am a yoga and meditation instructor and I am extremely passionate about the benefits that yoga can offer mind, body and spirit. I have been practising yoga for a number of years and completed a Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher training course in India in the summer of 2019. It is my mission to make yoga and meditation accessible to everybody regardless of their individual ability. More recently I became a psychology graduate and will be working as a freelance researcher exploring the benefits of mindfulness, which I will feel will go hand in hand with my teaching; allowing me to continue learning and integrating new knowledge into my classes.
Yoga is not about being flexible, it is about showing up for yourself with no expectations of how your practice should go. It is about going inward, to observe the body and mind. It allows us to become better connected to our true selves; a way of finding the best version of yourself. It is about discovering that the negative voices in our head telling us what we “can’t” or “shouldn’t” do are not true. It is about slowing down from the busy world and connecting to something greater than yourself. Yoga is the ultimate practice of love.
