Find out more about relationship counselling, whether it is suitable for you and how it can help you. Suitable for individuals or couples.

Supportive and caring relationships are an essential aspect of our wellbeing. When one or both people in a relationship are facing challenges or difficulties, the relationship itself can be stressed.

I am a Holistic Personal Development Coach (primarily using NLP and Hypnosis) I guide my clients to use mind-body awareness to access inner resources and determine well-being.  I aim to teach them how to liberate themselves from old patterns and restrictive ways of being, so that they can develop a positive relationship with themselves and confidence in their ability to cope with the challenges of life.  Rather than being 'stuck' in an emotion that is overwhelming and limits them (i.e fear, anxiety, jealousy) I facilitate the resolution of inner conflict and I guide them to generate and strengthen emotions that serve them.  I also work with people to gain a greater sense of choice over behaviors that were addictive / habitual.

Pilates

Pilates is a safe form of exercise which focuses on the deep abdominal muscles to support, stabilise and rebalance your body. Charlie’s approach to teaching is a completely inclusive one and believes that every ‘body’ can benefit hugely from the fundamental Pilates principle of reinforcing functional movement through strengthening, stabilizing and rediscovering body awareness. 

All classes incorporate a variety of movements leaving the body feeling stretched, toned and strengthened. Charlie believes that people get far more out of their practice if they understand why they are doing what they are doing. To this end, Charlie’s approach to teaching is to apply a functional aspect to each exercise so you can understand how your  practice will start to improve day-to-day movements like sitting, walking, biking, playing sport or carrying heavy bags!

Feeback from the summer 2013 Event

"Thank you so much for "Clifton Gets Healthy". I found out what is on offer in my area and had great fun trying out classes for free! I loved Jen's class, doing star-jumps in Clifton Village; I met the Nordic Walking group and found out about a new sport that I really enjoy; and I met some really nice people during the week. It was a brilliant event that has really helped me to achieve my goals of getting outdoors and doing more exercise. Thank you!" - Mina

"Had the privilege of being invited to take part in 'Clifton Gets Healthy Week' September of 2013. 
Gifted the use of a marquee for 2 days and a mini marquee on the 3rd, these were a perfect working space to showcase my skills at The Mall Gardens in Clifton Village. My schedule was fully booked very soon after being announced, treated 26 people with combinations of Acupuncture, Massage, Gua Sha and Kinesio Taping. Feedback from the patients was extremely positive and I too still feel encouraged by my participation in such a wonderful concept."
- Jim Green

"Rosie, just thought I would say thanks again for your hospitality this morning. It was great to do something slightly different and put a little bit back into the community. I really hope the rest of the week is a success as its a great idea. Have left a few flyers at the marquee which is a BOGOF offer. Would be more than happy to do it again if the situation arises in the future, so do stay in touch." - Pete Ellyatt.

Feedback from winter 2014 Event

"Privileged again to be welcomed as part of the team for Clifton Gets Healthy, 'January Blues' event. Thanks to the Avon Gorge Hotel for the use of a very peaceful suite over looking the Bridge for the 3 days I was there, made to feel very much at home the minute I walked in. Treated 13 people with various therapies and conditions, including a few of the staff of the hotel. A very positive experience once again, many thanks to all."
Jim Green acupuncturist/masseur/multi therapist

"Thank you so much for your work and support on the Clifton Gets Healthy event.  Over my two mornings I made four bookings and had to turn two people down as I decided to extend my appointments to 40 mins (30 mins is a bit of a squeeze for my therapy).  The people that came to see me were wonderfully fabulous and were taking full advantage of all the other treatments on offer!  I would love to take part again in June." - Sophie Briers

"Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to meet so many new clients. I booked in 16 people. It was a roaring success and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Two of the introduced clients booked in on the spot." - Sally Rodrigues
