Meditation and Relaxation

Many people say that "I haven't got the ability to meditate, my mind is too busy!".  This is a common theme and people are often surprised when they find out that just about everyone (until they learn some basic techniques) has the same "monkey mind" that wants to jump from one thing to another!

Guided relaxation and meditation can be provided to help people find some inner quiet and to help people in their own meditation or spiritual journey.  The approach used will depend on the need of the client, and could include breath/body work, use of a mantra/prayer word, or visualization.  


No special equipment is needed and tuition/coaching can be provided online or face-to-face (depending on Corona guidelines).  

Consultation can also be provided over the 'phone if you have a particular query related to your practice.

Mindfulness is a practice of 'being in the moment' which leads to mental clarity and a sense of inner peace and well-being. The techniques are easy to learn and are similar to those used in formal meditation practice.  The idea is to learn how to gently focus the mind during everyday life, which helps manage stress and leads to the development of a clear mind. 

Mindfulness tuition can be provided by video/telephone consultation as well as in person.

Reiki (meaning 'universal' or 'life' energy) is a healing technique which originated from Japan. It promotes relaxation and therefore is ideal for the reduction of stress.  Reiki can be used to compliment meditation and mindfulness practice and other types of 'energy work' such as Chi Kung, Tai Chi or yoga.  Reiki is taught in the lineage of Usui Reiki, the originator of the system. 


Reiki is compatible with all faiths and can be used in conjunction with any other medical treatment (it is often practised by complimentary therapists).  Reiki is becoming more widely offered in hospitals, clinics and in palliative care, such as in hospices.

Home visits are available, or you can visit Jim for a treatment.  Reiki treatments can be combined with guided relaxation and meditation.  Jim's approach is influenced by his study and personal practice of Chi Kung and Taoist/Buddhist arts.
