Are you feeling lonely or isolated or confused about your purpose in life? Perhaps you feel unhappy or are going through a major change?

Are you in a job that requires confidentiality – maybe a senior executive role, a nurse, a doctor or in the police?  Your significant other is supportive but you can’t tell them the detail.  Or are you struggling with anxiety from Covid – maybe you can’t cope with going back to the office or you need to get back to the office because you can’t cope with being at home? Perhaps you’ve been made redundant or a life change has been thrust upon you.

The world has changed beyond recognition, maybe you want a change, but you are not sure what that looks or feels like?

Sara can offer a safe and confidential space to explore and work towards your new exciting life plan.

She utilises a range of techniques from coaching to meditation to help you explore and plan your journey.

Sara can offer online or one-to-one in person sessions at the beautiful and calming environment of The Simon Wellbeing Centre. Even going for a walk can help to unlock feelings and thoughts that are making you feel trapped and anxious.

You are not alone, Sara is  here to help. For a free 30 minute discovery call to explore how you could work together please email [email protected]

Using her natural intuitive gifts, developed by years of training and experience, Anna connects with Divine love and guidance to support people with all aspects of life and often acts as a catalyst for transformation for people all over the world.

Born eleven weeks prematurely and with Cerebral Palsy, Anna took her first independent steps at the age of six and learned to walk twice more following major surgery and long term illness in her teens.

Anna, whose voice has been likened to Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan, has since performed for international audiences, and released another track called ‘You Saved Me’, co-written with Jo Beth Young.

Lila Ramsahai

Saturday, August 17, 2019

Ramsahai Wellbeing and its founder Lila Ramsahai have come a long way. Originally from South America, life wasn’t plain sailing for Lila. She immigrated to the Netherlands in her teens and is familiar with a multi-cultural, international and diverse life. It set her to pursue her career as a psychotherapist, existentialist, culturalist and life coach in the UK as a mature student.

Today, Lila is an established intercultural, existential psychotherapist and holistic life coach in Harley Street, London, where she feels honoured to be able to assist others in their personal journey. She has now joined the Koorana Centre in Ardingly too.

For three decades, Lila further immersed herself as a seeker of Truth through Advaita Vedanta, Mindfulness, Buddhism, Bhakti Yoga (devotional service) and Jnana Yoga (path of self-knowledge); these further enriched and enhanced her work with clients.

You will get the best of both worlds when working with Lila, an accredited Holistic life coach and psychotherapist. Due to it, she can offer a hybrid therapy approach where she can combine both when necessary. It will help you understand the root cause(s) of your issue(s) and explore how these can affect other areas in your life, such as work, love, relationships, physical health, purpose & meaning. As such, she offers a holistic approach to your wellness & wellbeing and perceives you as a whole being, not just somebody with an issue or problem.

What is existential counselling/therapy?

A unique form of psychotherapy, existential therapy explores distress and mental struggle from a different perspective, where emotional and psychological difficulties are viewed as an inner conflict caused by an individual’s confrontation with the ‘givens’ of existence. The ‘givens’ of existence are; death, freedom & responsibilities, existential isolation and meaninglessness. The ‘givens’ are an inescapable part of our existence in the world that lies deep in the subconscious of every human being. The extent to how ‘comfortable’ we are with these ‘givens’ will often determine our overall wellbeing in the here and now.

Al Nicholson

Saturday, July 6, 2019

Allan’s journey into sound healing began in 2015 when he was looking for holistic ways to deal with some health issues and attended a local gong bath. From this interest he realised that becoming a sound therapist was the new direction he had been looking for. In 2017 he qualified as a Gong Practitioner after studying with Gong Master, Sheila Whittaker and the College of Sound Healing and Good Vibrations Sound Therapy was born.

Allan facilitates group and 1-2-1 sound baths, and also collaboration events with other wellness practitioners, bringing a sense of peace and deep relaxation in this busy world we live in. Sound therapy promotes a natural state of wellbeing as vibration and sound waves work to reset the mind, body and spirit back to their natural state.  He’s continually learning about the healing powers of sound and his collection of gongs and healing instruments continues to grow.
