A core principle of NLP is 'If you always do what you've always done you will always get what you've always got'. In other words, if your current behaviour is unconsciously not getting you what you want in life then by making this unconscious behaviour conscious, you can make more resourceful choices and get a better result!
Many people study NLP to help them
become more effective in their chosen field. The patterns
can be employed across a wide area of applications ranging
from fields as diverse as: education (all
levels), team building & training,
& marketing, business & management, negotiation,
& professional development, leadership and coaching,
relationships (personal & professional) .

CEASE is the Complete Elimination of Autistic Spectrum Expression. Although synonymous with Autism, it is also now being widely used for many other conditions such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Asperger's Syndrome and other diseases where the immune system is compromised. The increased use of medication, environmental stresses and travel vaccines all play their part in contributing to these spectrum conditions.
Children, in particular babies and
young children, are very sensitive to toxins and in the case
of Autism the toxins have overloaded the system with an
accumulation of stress factors. These can be many things
including allopathic drugs, insufficient nutrients and
environmental factors, added to which is the ever increasing
number of vaccines a child receives before the age of two
years. CEASE Therapy treats Autism and other conditions
using a combination of detoxing the causative factors with
Homeopathic remedies, dietary changes, supplements and
constitutional Homeopathy treatment.

Homeopathy works on the principle that 'like cures like' - in other words a substance that causes particular symptoms in a healthy person may modify the same symptoms in a sick person. This 'law of similars' was understood by Aristotle and Hippocrates and also referred to in ancient Hindu texts.
Homeopathy is a holistic medicine that aims to treat the whole person, but different people with the same complaint may exhibit different symptoms. For this reason each case needs to assessed by detailed careful analysis of the clients physical and emotional symptoms in order to arrive at the appropriate remedy. Homeopathic remedies are prepared by combining serial dilution and 'succussion' (vigorous shaking).
We will explain the process of your treatment and the principles of homeopathy. In order to arrive at the appropriate remedy we will need to discuss (in some detail) your lifestyle, diet, sleep patterns, medical history, family and much more. For this reason your first consultation may up to two hours, although follow-ups will be somewhat shorter. Please be assured that all personal information is securely held and is totally confidential. After a detailed analysis, a homeopathic remedy is then selected that most closely matches your unique pattern of symptoms.
Homeopathy can be used effectively and
safely for all - from babies and children to adults,
including women during pregnancy. Homeopathic remedies are
safe and non-addictive and can be taken alongside
prescription drugs. The remedies are normally taken in
tablet or pillule form, but can available as a liquid.

Food intolerance is not, unlike a food allergy, a reaction by the body's immune system. Symptoms may be slower to manifest and may persist for several hours, and a person may be intolerant to a number of foods or groups of foods. Sometimes a person can tolerate a certain amount of a food but if they eat too much or too frequently then symptoms arise.
Dietary factors contributing to conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Asthma, Eczema, Migraine, Thrush, PMT, High Blood Pressure, Sinusitis, and Glue Ear in children can often be identified by food intolerance testing. Symptoms are varied and can include headaches, low energy, tiredness, constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, nausea, vomiting, IBS, skin rashes, joint pain, dark circles under the eyes, night sweats, chronic runny or blocked nose, etc. In food allergy, the symptoms are usually predictable. With food intolerance, a much wider range of symptoms may occur which can make diagnosis more difficult.
A food intolerance consultation will include a detailed appraisal of the client's diet and lifestyle, followed by kinesiology (muscle testing) for the specific intolerances. Advice regarding any required adjustments to diet and lifestyle will then be provided and assistance offered to support these changes, such as nutritional advice and recipe suggestions. A follow-up consultation will review progress and fine-tune the recommendations. Read more about food intolerance and food allergy issues here
Coaching (which may or may not include hypnosis - 'hypno-coaching') helps the client to 'unstick' from something holding them back in some aspect of their personal or professional life. Their life may lack direction or they are finding it difficult to achieve goals that have been identified. Read more about coaching here
h2 Natural Health (in association with Footlight
Dance of Nottingham) offers sensory movement / seated dance
sessions to care homes, residential homes and other
facilities throughout Perthshire, Angus and Dundee.
Dance is often an activity that people have to stop due to reduced mobility and balance problems. We use appropriate sensory movement (chair-based initially), music and props to explore creative ideas, enabling participants to overcome percieved limitations. Indeed, this type of fun activity has been shown to be of particular benefit to dementia sufferers. We often find staff and residents standing up to enjoy a waltz or jive, exercising the body, stimulating the mind and feeding the soul!
