The treatment consists of gently applying massage movements or pressure onto particular areas of the feet (reflex zones). Reflexology can also be considered as an alternative for people who may feel uncomfortable with a whole body massage. Sessions last about an hour and are usually experienced as deeply relaxing.

My work with you is based very much on your needs and takes in the bigger picture of the human being and your biography, helping you to find some meaning in the challenges that you meet. These challenges can provide us with an opportunity to develop and grow new capacities within ourselves that can lead to finding a more fulfilling way forward in life. I integrate various modalities into my practice, particularly biographical counselling, the person-centred approach, solution-focussed work, cognitive behavioural therapy, systemic practice and the use of creative methods.
I have been counselling since 1994, working mainly in private practice, school settings, general practices and within the voluntary sector. My work involves counselling individuals, children, young people and couples who may be struggling with issues such as relationship difficulties, life crises, bereavement, anxiety, depression, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, trauma, anger and loss. This can be on a short or longer-term basis.
I am a qualified counselling supervisor working with experienced and trainee counsellors.

Melanie Taylor provides Bridges-to-Oasis Groups and Courses
I am an experienced practitioner in group learning processes, offering support for a wide range of challenges, including isolation, anxiety, bereavement, disability, loss of connection and meaning. Finding help for yourself in a respectful, non-judgmental supportive group can bring you new insights, connections and creativity.
I offer a space in small groups where you can find a restoration of personal balance through working with others on three individually themed Pathways.
Some life events that may have caused pain and suffering often hold the key to transformation, hope and joy. A true listening space for shared biography can help their spiritual significance to emerge. Artistic activities awaken creativity, access the imaginative dimension and strengthen social awareness. Stories, myths and legends release the mind from everyday concerns, inviting the language of archetypal images belonging to the soul’s journey to appear.’ Bridges-to-Oasis

Eurythmy Therapy is a holistic movement therapy which engages not only a physical but also a cognitive and emotional level. It works with rhythms, spatial exercises and movements connected to sounds of speech and music which have relationships to the healing forces in the human organism. Like the sound in our language, the movements belonging to them have a variety of qualities and can be chosen and adjusted to meet the needs of each individual client his/her path to better health and well being.
Some Eurythmy Therapy movements can support breathing and relaxation thereby diminishing tension and anxiety. Other movements can strengthen the experience of one’s centre and boundaries and improve inner and outer balance.
Through engaging the whole human being and allowing the client to be active in the therapy process, practising Eurythmy Therapy movements can stimulate the harmonizing and healing processes within us and can be beneficial for a wide range of illnesses and conditions.
Ursula Werner has practiced Eurythmy Therapy for over 20 years and is a member of the Eurythmy Therapy Association of the UK and of Anthromed.

Psychotherapy & Counselling
MA Psychotherapy; Dip. Couns; UKCP Registered
During the current lockdown situation I am offering therapy via telephone or zoom video calls. For more information please phone 07429 488546 or Email me.
I am an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering both short and longer term therapy for a wide range of issues. These may include finding support in periods of distress, addressing a particular issue (eg. anxiety, anger, relationships, self-esteem, identity, bereavement etc.,) or the wish to deepen your awareness and understanding of yourself, your patterns and your experience. I hope to help you gain insight, enhance your life and to live it more fully and creatively through the experience of a respectful, supportive and trusting therapeutic relationship. In my experience this is the catalyst for coming into true relationship with oneself, healing relational trauma and connecting with others.
My training is in Psychosynthesis, a depth psychology which has been called a psychology of Hope as well as of ‘Will and Love’. Core to this is an awareness that suffering and growth go hand in hand and that finding our good and skillful will allows us to connect with what holds value, meaning and purpose for us. And somewhere along the line we get glimpses of what Love might feel like as well. My practice is also informed by mindfulness, attachment theory, neuroscience, somatic experiencing, Davanloo’s ISTDP and meditation.
Please feel free to enquire for further details.
