Hello and thanks for visiting the site, where alternative therapies meet with conventional ones. As explanations go, some titles are used only for the mass definitions for which they are associated. I work as a 'Therapist', (a practitioner who treats physical, mental, or social disorder or disease), which will encompass many different modalities, as well as the spiritual propensity that I lend to my work.
I hope that I can give you a general overview of the services and treatments that I offer, and an understanding of the way in which I work. The definitions that I apply in terms of the therapies themselves are my own definitions, as I have come to understand them.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time by completing the form below.
» What's it all about?
A holistic approach is taken with every client as every situation will differ. The Cambridge Dictionary defines Holistic as 'dealing with or treating the whole of something or some-one and not just a part'.
This may involve one or more of the following:
- Counselling (goal focused or long-term)
- Psychotherapy (short or long-term)
- EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
- Relaxation & Visualisation
- Workshops on Public Speaking and Confidence
In addition to this:
- Energy cleansing and balancing
An initial telephone conversation will determine what course of action is required.
Why 'Nine Peaches'?
For those who have shown an interest in the name of the website, the following is an explanation of the chosen name's origin.
The Number 9
The number 9 is the first composite number. There are 9 integers in a circle, which is whole, complete.
The Hebrew word for nine is 'v'Te tay-shah or (masc.)' tish-aw. It is derived from a word meaning, 'to look at' or 'to regard, gaze at or about'. Following through to the idea of a turn to the next or full number ten. Other significances are human conception (9 months), initiation, the Moon, completeness, and 9 lives.
In Tao (pronounced 'Dow'), the Peach is a symbol of longevity. It holds many traditional references and was considered good medicine in Chinese culture. It is commonly associated with Springtime, the season of renewal, rebirth and blossom.
This unique flower (used in my website's logo graphic), or 'sea rose is often the symbol of openness. It can mean 'one after the other, symbolising succession. The lotus comes out of the mire, but is not itself soiled. It has no branches (no family or offspring) yet it is born. The graphic on this website depicts visually what the above meanings symbolise spiritually and metaphorically.
Nine Peaches Therapies combines hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, counselling, energy healing, stress management, dream analysis, psychotherapeutic analysis, life coaching, and spiritual development to treat the body, mind and spirit.
I work holistically and we look at your intention, what you intend to change. Change can then leave you feeling renewed, as you blossom and open into a new awareness, effecting one change after the next.
