What is Mind and Energy?

The world we live in today is very different from the world our body and minds were designed to live in, it is fast-paced and often stressful, and as some point we may need support to get back on track or to support to become 'unstuck', to learn new ways and ditch the old habits, to have the time and space to explore and heal. This is what this service was developed for, as well as teaching people the skills and techniques to maintain stable mental health.

The mind-body connection has become very popular since 1970. There are vast amounts of evidence that if the mind gets ill the body will follow, and vice versa, so it makes sense that in order to fully heal we need to look after our body as well as our minds. 

To avoid the build-up of toxic emotions, you need to remain present and aware. Paying attention to your thoughts, challenging them, and understanding where they come from and why they still affect you so much, this supports you to process them, and choose how you react. This is why CBT is so effective. Mindfulness then teaches us to acknowledge the thoughts as just thoughts, and let them go.

Mindfulness is another valuable mind-body practice for becoming more present and cantering the mind. Regular meditation practice is a particularly effective way to help the body modulate emotional responses and the accompanying neurochemical patterns that can otherwise flood the body with harmful stress hormones.

Other techniques that focus on the interaction between the body, mind, and behaviour include those therapies that focused on shifting blocked energy in the body, both Reiki and EFT/TFT both work well together to shift blocked chi and shift it evenly around the body.

Our aim is to reconnect the mind and body so that they work together in order to heal those in need of support with their mental ill-health.
