Does your dad, brother, son, uncle, husband or partner know that he doesn’t have to take it all on his shoulders? Do men feel able to talk freely about how they feel? Are they aware of the risks of bottling everything up and not giving themselves an outlet to work through their fears?
With the stigma of mental health for men being a significant barrier, we as a society have a responsibility to help men recognise that it is OK to seek support when they feel the chips are down or that they are taking too much on. At the very least mean need to know it is OK to take regular time out from the fast pace of life.
Healing from dieting, binge eating, disordered eating, body shame and how we think and feel about our bodies can be…well…hard work. We live in a society which has a culture that glorifies and praises dieting tendencies and intertwines our worth with our bodies, our nutritional intake and even our mental health. But is this how it should be? Rebecca Louise Kelly looks at how the diet culture is affecting our mental health and how we can start to make the change by listening to our bodies.

Is stress inherently bad for us? The very latest scientific research behind stress, demonstrates a number of techniques designed to decrease common stress factors.

Indiana’s i Revolution programmes are highly transformative and catalytic essentially taking someone from their current reality of what they are experiencing in the body and every area of their life, stripping that reality into components to understand the stories, choices and paths that have brought them to where they are now, connecting the dots and reflecting back to them how they are wearing those stories and the ways in which they have impacted their current reality thus far. With that new awareness and clarity, the next stage will be to then help facilitate the new story to be written first with the power of word (intentions) then physically and dynamically through their bodies.

I first heard about Biomagnetic Neuropsychology about 18 months ago when my colleague Faye Coulson, here at Haelan Therapy first started practising it. I was intrigued by the name alone, when I looked into what it really was, I knew that I could really benefit from this treatment. I then learned that NEURO could help with anxiety, depression, fear and all kinds of other things such as calming the mind of someone who has autism, or help someone with Parkinson’s to have more control of their movement. I decided that I wanted to go for it.

Haelan founder, Rebecca Louise Kelly sat down with Bekki Russell a long-standing and regular client to discuss her journey with Haelan, and how attending regular reflexology and coaching sessions has enabled her to heal on both a physical and mental level “Since coming to Haelan I believe the time that I have spent with you has enabled me to reduce my stress and anxiety and make some serious life decisions such as embracing my hobby of crocheting and turning it into a business.

Do you get stuck sometimes and have no idea which way to turn? At the end of last year an amazing opportunity came my way; to write a chapter in a book all about Energy Healing!

One of the questions that comes up most often in meditation class here at Haelan Therapy, when healing or when my colleagues are coaching our clients, is around being present and still. To be exact, I am often asked “what does it mean to truly be in the present moment?”.
In this blog, I will explain what this is and how it can be achieved at any moment, no matter where you are and what you are doing at any time.
Friendships can help improve our self-confidence, self-worth and also help reduce stress! The connection with ourselves and a knowledge of what makes us who we are is the foundation to enable a greater connection and friendship with others. By recognising who we truly are in terms of our values and beliefs and what may limit us in our lives, we give ourselves the choice to make a change within ourselves which will outwardly strengthen the bond and friendship with others.
When we experience any form of pain or suffering, we understandably can find it very hard to overcome. Many of us feel that the only way to get through this, is to wait. And whilst time can heal, there are other ways in which you can heal yourself and overcome suffering or pain, regardless of what form it is.
