HEALING GONG BATHS
Have you ever had a Gong Bath? Don’t worry, you won’t have to take your clothes off! We are delighted to host monthly gong baths from the amazing Martyn Cawthorne at Gong Spa, who says: “Hi I’m Martyn. I’m a qualified gong practitioner having completed a 1-year gong course at the College of Sound Healing.
I offer large, group gongs baths at various venues around Manchester and Cheshire. Gong baths are wonderful for your well-being, a completely unique way to spend an hour or so in harmonic luxury, enveloped by frequencies that can stimulate profound inner journeys and awakenings. I’ve been a musician and meditator for over 25 years and my passions are of sounds, silence and sharing.”
LIFE COACHING AND PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPIES
Is your life on track? Could you do with some impractical support to help you life your best life?! We have a number of fab therapists and a life coach at the nest ready to offer you the help you need. There’s life coach lucy from brighter prospects who says; “My name is Lucy Bull and I am a certified life coach and founder of Brighter Prospects Coaching.
I completed my formal qualification as a personal performance coach with The Coaching Academy, which is the world’s leading coach training provider. My background is in technical arts and I have been practicing mindfulness for the last eight years. Balancing practicality, creativity, focus and compassion, I offer personally tailored coaching sessions that facilitate positive life changes. Whether there is a goal to accomplish or an obstacle to overcome, I can support you in navigating the most effective path to beneficial results.”
There’s also psychotherapist Nina Bradshaw who says: “I have been on my own psychotherapy journey, and I understand how challenging life can seem at times, and how therapy can help. I can offer a listening ear, a place for you to reflect, to feel heard, and together we can look at the things that cause you pain. Perhaps in the safe space of the therapy relationship, you can start to make some sense of the things you struggle with and begin to find a way to move forward and into a more fulfilled and enjoyable life.”
Alex Linley, therapist, says “I’m dedicated to creating a stigma-free and non-judgemental environment in which individuals may access personal therapy.”
