Emma Price

I am an Integrative Therapist and an affiliate member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH). I practise Hypnotherapy, Stress Management & Relaxation and Numerology. I spent most of my working life as a Primary School teacher and always felt that through this I was meeting my calling of being able to give service to others. My belief is that this is my true, soul-purpose. The strength of this belief led me to a career and lifestyle change, which now enables me to help people who feel a need for change in their lives. I see the therapies I use as a tool to help facilitate change in all kinds of different ways – changes which at the core, are worthwhile, positive and of the utmost benefit to the client.

Hypnotherapy:
Using the natural state of hypnosis to help people achieve the changes that they want to make. As a Hypnotherapist, my role is to facilitate this change in partnership with the client. Hypnosis has its own benefits, however, when combined with thoughtful, tailor-made therapy it’s an extremely effective tool to enable change.

Hypnotherapy can help a person tackle a wide variety of issues including:
• Overcoming personal barriers
• Eliminating unwanted habits
• Improving confidence and self-esteem
• Healing emotional wounds

As a Hypnotherapist, I work with my client to fully explore the change that they feel they need to make – the starting point of effective therapy and always carried out with the client’s best interests at heart. From here, a tailor-made therapeutic process is designed to fully suit the client’s needs. Using the natural, state of hypnosis enables the therapy to be delivered in such a way that the client is fully open and receptive to it, allowing the positive process of change to begin.


Relaxation Therapy:

This is designed to give the client tools and strategies for managing their own personal anxieties and stresses. As the therapist, my role is to detail the client’s need for relaxation and work in partnership with them to design a course of therapy. Clients are then able to take ownership for the change to happen in their lives. Relaxation Therapy helps to:

• Identify triggers
• Promote positivity
• Improve health and well-being
• Reduce anxiety and stress

Numerology:
I strongly believe that we are guided by a higher purpose and part of my practice includes the use of Numerology as a tool to help facilitate change. This ancient science is the metaphysical study of numbers and their vibrational influence over us and our lives. I use this ancient tool, as a means for clients to better understand reasons as to why they think, feel and act the way they do – in a way which links them to their Soul-Purpose. This Soul-Purpose work offers help to align people more fully with their true path. Feeling disconnected, off-kilt, distanced and imbalanced are signs that we are not fully connected to our Soul-Purpose. I use Numerology as a tool to determine this purpose, reveal the path to reaching it and facilitate the client in realising their true potential.

Catherine Mc Kean

My name is Catherine, I specialise working as a Meta Health®️Master Practitioner, Meta Kinetics Practitioner and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

My journey into the Elysia Therapeutic Centre to introduce Meta Health® has been an accumulation of understanding why as a teenager, my body had created an auto immune disease; and that after years of working within Self Care and Management of Long Term Conditions, the most important challenge is treating a person as a ‘whole’ to enable self-awareness and self-responsibility in health and wellbeing. 

The commitment to a more person centred approach to managing physical and mental illness and putting the needs of people at the forefront with an integrative model, has been the drive for a number of years in the NHS, but time, increased costs and patient numbers, lack of resources and funding has meant that while there has been clear pathways built, there is still much more input needed. 

What if there was a system that bridged the gap between the traditional medical model and mind body medicine? A system that explored a medical diagnosis and provided a framework for a new paradigm for a person to create self-awareness, self-responsibility, self-care and self-confidence to truly transform their health and wellbeing.

Welcome to Meta Health

META-Health® is an advancing organ-bio-psycho-social framework, that adopts a systemic method of enquiry and analysis. It theoretically explains and practically demonstrates the cause, meaning and process of any dis-ease on a biological, psychological and behavioural level. Meta Health is a scientific framework, based on research via brain relay diagnostics and a set of guiding principles.

Principles of Meta Health® are that nature does not make errors or mistakes and our organism is a highly intelligent, orderly and sophisticated system, so there is no separation between body, mind and spirit embedded in the social environment.  Meta Health explores significant emotional events and threshold breaches of stress as the beginning of the disease process, using brain relay diagnostics and evolutionary embryonic layers to determine organ reactions which are in stress and regeneration phases. It uses a person’s subjective perception and feedback to determine how the significant stress has imprinted on a person’s biology, psychology and brain.

Meta Health® is not a diagnostic tool for disease nor a therapy, it precedes therapy, using a framework of Meta Analysis. It identifies how significant emotional events are connected to physical symptoms, brain relays, belief structures, emotions, feelings and patterns of behaviour; creating an awareness for a client as how unexpected events can imprint on a person’s physical, emotional, social, environmental and spiritual well-being. Once a Meta Analysis is completed then a therapeutic and coaching plan can be implemented.

How I work

I offer a free 20minute consultation via telephone for any new enquiries.

A Meta Health discovery session of up to 2.5hrs is the beginning of a person’s journey, this maps a timeline, significant events, diagnosis, mental and behavioural patterns. Following this, each person’s sessions are decided upon their need. A minimum of 6, 1.5hr sessions are required to work with Meta Health 1-1.

If you are a GP practice, health care professional including occupational health, and would like me to come and discuss Meta Health® and how it can be incorporated into your pathway, please email: camred66@gmail.com

Discovering Touch… rediscovering touch…

Workshop for Individuals with persistent pain

10 November 2018
10:00 – 12:30

Persistent pain (e.g. in our limbs and spine in conditions such as chronic low back pain or fibromyalgia) often goes along with discomfort about being touched or sudden pain during ordinary activity when we don’t expect it. As a result, individuals who suffer with chronic pain very understandably try and avoid touch, being touched or activities that carry a risk of aggravating the pain, often leading to profound restriction on their lives.

This workshop is for people with persistent pain and their partners (or a good friend) who would like to discover/ rediscover their own world of touch through guided, simple and safe exercises. The main objective is to begin to experience touch as something safe, important and enriching to all our daily lives.

What to expect:
The workshop is facilitated by Fiona Sim and Rainer Klocke (Consultant Rheumatologist).
After a brief introduction about chronic pain and the role of touch, we will begin with simple exercises on our own using our hands and feet. We may be using towels, water and/ or oils to support our experience. We will be sharing our own observation and respect each other’s comfort zones.

About the course facilitators:

Fiona Sim is a Registered Nurse, Anthroposophic Nurse Specialist and Rhythmical Einreibung Teacher. She has worked in integrated health care for twenty years and is currently working at Marie Curie Hospice West Midlands and running courses in Rhythmical Einreibung at Emerson College. http://www.emerson.org.uk/rhythmical-einreibung. Fiona sees clients for Rhythmical Einreibung treatments both in their homes and at Elysia Therapeutic Centre. Rhythmical Einreibung is a gentle therapeutic touch technique.

Rainer Klocke has been working as a Consultant Rheumatologist in Dudley for over 13 years and has a special interest in pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. He is particularly interested in complementary approaches to pain management for these conditions.

Cost:
To cover expenses of this course, we suggest a donation of £ 20.00 (waged) or £ 15:00 (unwaged).

The Foundation Stone Meditation

A Workshop with Melanie Taylor and Karin Jarman

22nd and 23rd September 2018

The Foundation Stone Meditation as Inspiration for Contemporary Support Group Work

Creativity lies at the heart of the healing process, within ourselves, the communities we are a part of and society as a whole.
We invite you join us on an inner and outer journey working with The Foundation Stone Meditation in art, colour and themed conversation.

This powerful mantra given in four parts to the members of the Anthroposophical Society in December 1923 by Rudolf Steiner; one year after the devastating destruction of the First Goetheanum through arson. Steiner conceived this building as an outer expression of the New Mysteries. After its total destruction he told the members that this building had been a living building, and could therefore continue to exist in the hearts and minds of each person who wished to connect to the New Mysteries.

In working deeply with this meditation over many years, we found tremendous inspiration to reach out to our fellow human beings, who are seeking, often through illness and life crisis, to find meaning and context in their lives. This gave rise to the impulse of the Oasis work, which is now spreading into different countries, even beyond Europe.

In this workshop, we will create an artistic journey through colour and form moving through the whole meditation, as well as through spoken contributions and conversation.
Sebastian Parsons will present the Soul’s Choice workshops on Sunday afternoon, sister organisation to Oasis.
Anyone who feels a connection to this meditation is invited to participate. It is important to attend both days to have the complete experience of this wonderful mantra. We hope that this workshop will open the Foundation Stone meditation as a spiritual resource for any individual, group activity or training and give inspiration for new initiative.

Cost: £140 for both days. Concessions by individual request.
Venue: Elysia Therapeutic Centre, 52, Bowling Green Road, Stourbridge, West Midlands. DY8 3RZ.

Painting for Wellbeing

An Introduction to Veil Painting
with Julie Neale

30 July – 3 August, every morning 10am until 12.30

Julie invites you to explore colour and image through the technique of veil painting. Veil painting is more about the process than it is about the end outcome.

“The calm, almost meditative state that we enter into when painting in this way, is just as important and as beneficial, as the final product.”

In veil painting we start from the colours first and foremost, then allow the movement of each colour to dictate the overall feeling and eventual images that might arise.

Cost: £150, or £25 per session. Limited to 6 participants

No previous painting experience is necessary. All materials & refreshments provided

Booking and further information contact: Julie Neale, Therapeutic Artist. julieaneale@hotmail.com or call 07971 635856.

Soul’s Choice Workshop

Seeing and understanding the living architecture of our Soul

16 June 2018
9am – 4pm

The aim of Soul’s Choice is to support people to fulfill their potential, find their path, and meet their destiny, in all they do, small or big.

Good and evil seem to battle away eternally, within our own hearts and across the globe. However, it is possible to look at this eternal battle differently, and by so doing re-energise and mobilise our whole lives.

Together we will explore our soul-life using simple verbal and artistic exercises, and every-day observations to develop greater skill and confidence in taking our unique spiritual resources into the world.

Cost: £45
Workshop facilitators: Melanie Taylor and Sebastian Parsons
