  • The aim is to explore the process needed to heal the emotional issues that are bound up in eating disorders, to tap into feelings that underlie our attitude, beliefs and patterns related to food and to find way’s to make changes in our lives and self. It aims to work with disorders including Anorexia, Bulimia, Bulimiarexia, compulsive and comfort eating.
  • Eating disorders are a serious and potentially life threatening mental health disorder.  All age groups, gender, socio-economic and cultural backgrounds can be affected by eating disorders, which vary from a wide range of symptoms. Eating disorders have become quiet prevalent in our society as a means to cope with distress, consumerism promotes the negative compulsive aspect of this leaving adolescents and young women at heightened risk.
    A person with an eating disorder can be under-weight, normal weight or over-weight.
  • My aim is to work with clients to enhance their physical and emotional well-being. The goal of the Group therapy would be to support awareness, deliver a comprehensive assessment and treatment according to the needs of each individual client in their path of recovery. I provide a safe and confidential setting in which to work with this group, facilitate and lead the assessment in terms of needs and suitability for this group and the delivery of the program and helpful interventions in the Group process.
    On assessment following referral we will discuss suitability, needs, relevant issues including policies and procedures according to the overall aims and goals of the Group with each client.

Conscious Femininity exploration Workshop:

Spring 2019.  Beginning February:

Our society encourages mechanism to use for its own gains. As women we fall prey to the illusion of power and control and sacrifice our femininity to the ambitious corporate world. Who have we become individually as women? Who are we to each other? Whom do we serve?

We have become a society of women constantly competing to be perfect superwomen.

We have become less supportive of each other and more competitive, as this is hidden or denied we hold a shadow between us, an unspoken one as we try to deny that our relationships are becoming more of a false intimacy than a true connection.

We as women allow ourselves to be unaware, we are blinded into the uruoborous, the serpent eating its own tail; we colluded in the patriarchal world to compete with each other for dominance, we dismiss the feminine energies of our true inheritance. Women who struggle to hold inner feelings and vulnerabilities are often considered weak, unable to be our true self in a patriarchal world, we subsequently dismiss our own vulnerability, our natural intuition and wisdom, sacrificing it for blinded betrayal and seduction. We have lost much of our intuitive dignity and our Integrity, we have taken on conditioned roles too easily, we submit our wisdom to striving for perfection; we become the Patriarchal woman, perfect woman, superwoman or “other woman” as an internalised projection.

We paved the way for equality, when we achieved it somewhat in the Feminist movement, we did not review and stand also for our true essence, our reverence and wisdom?

How can we hold both, what have we given up and betrayed in ourselves and how can we connect mindfully with this part, bringing it into our lives, integrating it into our lives and homes. While, we also allow ourselves to be in the world as equals.

We need to discuss these issues; we need to  explore ways in which we can redeem our true self and our soul nature.

We must try to mediate with what the obstacle is which prevents us ” being” in our true essence.

We must explore the shadow that we deny in our connection as women.

We need to look at our own template for relating as women and the source of our templates, and how we might like to change something of that. This we will do working experientially with symbols and story, using myth to bring to life deep rooted beliefs that do and don’t serve us, thus leaving us with a choice to navigate a different path to our own wholeness.

Workshop; Working through symbol and myth we explore the many roles we carry as Modern Women in search of meaning in our everyday lives; what matters most to our soul and who we wish to become.

The Different nature of the female and feminine psyche must be discovered anew if women are to understand themselves, but also if the Patriarchally masculine world that has fallen ill, thanks to its extreme one sidedness is again to return to health. Erich Neumann

Mindfulness through Bodymind awareness:

Mindfulness through Bodymind awareness:

Without Religion or Spiritual Masters to guide us we must find our way through often lonely and traumatic paths. Our vulnerability as a human condition, our environment, and our experiences, can at times present as a difficult fate. Our deepest beliefs may be tested if we are not supported to embrace and make meaning of these trying events or experiences, and if we do not have the guidance to steer our way through difficult paths in an empathic way, they can manifest in illness, addiction, and an unrealistic pursuit of happiness.

Discover how we can bring real change to patterns that prevent us living without inner peace.

In the spiritual practice of Mindfulness, we experience being informed through understanding the art of living in the present, skilful in knowing how to retreat or return to our own inner centre, from this we learn the practice of how to connect to our world through nature, and how to become compassionate, aware and attentive to others as well as oneself.

Develop skills to support us to manage stress, relieve anxiety and improve our mental and emotional capacity in our everyday lives and relationships

Learning to habitually include simple meditation along with a supportive philosophy, help’s to navigate and find meaning in the challenges of life. Conscious practice brings deep and lasting changes, which bring positive influence to your life.

Mindfulness classes; Morning and Evening. Corrandulla Co. Galway
