COMMON EMOTIONAL AND STRESS-RELATED CONDITIONS: THERAPIES SUITABLE / HELPFUL Complementary therapies can often be used alongside conventional procedures and medication. The reference below is intended as a guide only to help with your selection of a therapist. If concerned please consult your GP. The emphasis of complementary therapy is to treat the whole person with the aim of stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal. The conditions below have generally been shown to be helped by the therapies listed. More research into complementary therapy is needed and funding is limited. The success of complementary therapies depends to a certain degree on the skills and knowledge of the practitioners.

hat is Healthcare? Is it about expecting the GP to give us a magic cure once the body has been run into the ground and stress has taken its toll? Healthcare is taking responsibility and caring for our health. ‘Healthier Choices’ is a statement we have all heard, and we are all aware a good diet, exercise and a positive mental attitude are fundamental. Complementary therapy is gradually becoming more widely available on the NHS and being introduced in more healthcare settings, including hospitals, GP surgeries and community clinics. Having worked as a General Nurse for over 30 years I have been on both sides of the fence suffering from the debilitating effects of stress and also frustrated with the unnecessary excessive workload placed on a stretched NHS with ailments and illness that can often appear self-inflicted. I know all too well how easy it is to slide into bad habits, such as eating disorders and addictive tendencies. This is evident in a society now facing problems with obesity and alcohol abuse, and when taken to the extreme can lead to social exclusion, family breakdown, education and career difficulties or even mental health concerns. Obesity and smoking, it is well known, can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease. Even these are a side effect of deeper issues which can lie underneath the surface. When seeking help the focus is often on the surface issue and not the real problem. Then all that we end up doing is treating the symptoms. My experience has been that masking the symptoms of depression has not worked well for me and having access to emotional support has been highly beneficial in identifying the underlying issues and releasing negative beliefs. Over the years I have experienced many therapies from Acupuncture to Yoga. Many of these have helped to give me a broader understanding of what needed to be addressed to learn to relax, strengthen my body and take the necessary steps towards being responsible for a healthier lifestyle. This Directory has been produced to offer help, support and guidance to both individuals and organisations to promote and maintain both their physical and emotional health. This can lead to a more fulfilling life and enables us to contribute more effectively in a work, social and family environment. I would highly recommend reading through this booklet and, as a first step talking with any of the therapists you may be drawn to as many of them have a wealth of knowledge and are often happy to offer some initial help and guidance. When contacting a therapist for private treatment, make sure they are fully qualified and an accredited member of the appropriate organisation (for example the British Acupuncture Council). To gain more knowledge on how complementary therapy can help with many types of conditions, you are invited to read through this Directory and explore how you can improve the quality of your life.

omplementary therapies work alongside conventional therapy to enable patients to recover and deal with ailments that cannot be rapidly solved by conventional medical care. As a medical practitioner for 29 years with a specialist interest in palliative care, I am well aware of the many conditions for which standard medicine has no instant solutions. Complementary care can help conditions from anxiety to arthritis, from bereavement to cancer, from allergy to addiction. Simple remedies from experienced therapists can greatly improve the quality of life for many people, with minimal risk of side effects. I welcome this booklet, to direct you to local practitioners, who could help you find support to enable optimal quality and duration of life. Dr Sandra Mather FRCGP M Med Ed

“The secret of balance meant that all life is a marriage of opposites. There is no life without physical death; no joy without sorrow; no pleasure without pain; no light without darkness; no sound without silence; no good without bad. True health is a form of wholeness”. John Bradshaw

It can be useful for all conditions, as its focus is on the person, not only on the symptoms.

WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? This simple guide could help you to recognise your strengths, traits and the challenges you face by being who you are and who you attract into your life. Red Personality Type – Are you: • Enthusiastic, passionate and energetic • Sociable • Can leap into things and often will say yes before thinking • Too many commitments can lead to resentments and exhaustion • All go or stop – tendency to burn out • Often will talk first and not always good at listening • Grounded, can be materialistic Blue Personality Type – Are you: • Calm and peaceful • Enjoys own company • Will often say no first and hesitant to make a commitment • Contemplative • Appears aloof • Good listener • Takes time to pull away from or withdraw at times Although these are generalisations, many of us will recognise aspects of ourselves, as well as our partners and family.

Complementary therapies for people with cancer


any people with cancer now use complementary therapies to help support themselves through cancer and its treatment. Some hospitals and hospices in the UK are now offering complementary therapy to people with cancer as part of their overall care. Support groups often provide therapy sessions too. Although no reputable therapist will ever claim to cure cancer, research shows that complementary therapies including gentle massage, reflexology, aromatherapy and spiritual healing can help reduce anxiety and promote relaxation and better sleep patterns. People report that therapy has improved their sense of well-being and helped reduce the symptoms of cancer and the side effects of treatment. If you would like further information and support you may wish to look at the website of Macmillan Cancer Care -, or telephone their Freephone CancerLine: 0808 808 2020 (Monday - Friday 9.00am - 9.00pm) for help and advice.

What is The Journey? The Journey is a simple, gentle and effective means to free us from old emotional and physical blocks. It is therefore an extraordinary tool for physical healing as well as emotional well-being. Have you ever wondered how it would feel to be completely free of the hurts of the past? It may be anxiety or fear; depression or addiction; sadness or deep grief; guilt or regret - or just a feeling that there must be more to life than this. Or perhaps it is a physical challenge such as cancer; IBS; ME / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; eczema or psoriasis; high blood pressure; or arthritis. The Journey Practitioners below are personally trained by Brandon Bays, the founder of The Journey. Brandon’s own personal journey of healing from a tumour in her uterus to complete wellness in six weeks – with no medical intervention whatever – is the basis for the therapy that has helped people all over the world with physical and emotional healing.

Massage grew from the natural instinct of humans and mammals to rub away their ‘aches and pains’. Ancient cultures developed routines to promote health and well-being. Modern Western massage (devised in the 1800s) is based on a tailored sequence of light, medium or firm movements. Research shows that massage has a therapeutic effect on the whole body, including the reduction of the physical symptoms of stress.

Healing touch for children


ur modern world is full of demands, choices and expectations – and children from as young as four years old are faced with concerns over appearance, homework, peer pressure and sibling rivalry. It’s no surprise that so many children these days suffer from stress and related symptoms both at home and at school. This is exactly why the Massage in Schools Programme is such an important and exciting initiative, with schools and childcare services around the UK and abroad encouraging peer massage for 4-12 year olds to help learning and develop social and emotional skills within a safe environment. The benefits of a fun, daily 10-15 minute massage session include improved concentration and memory and increased selfesteem. Schools who are involved in the programme report a significant reduction in bullying. As one child said: “Since starting the massage I don’t get bullied because I am friendlier.” Children are also empowered to distinguish between appropriate and inappropriate touch. For more information and training possibilities on the programme go to (tel: 02086 811900). You may also enjoy reading about the benefits and simple massage and reflexology techniques to use in the home in Healing Touch for Children (Gaia Books, 2009) by Mary Atkinson.

I have been practising Yoga for eight years and completed a three-year Yoga teacher training course with the Inner Yoga Trust in 2007 (accredited with the British Wheel of Yoga). I teach Yoga classes in Southsea on a Tuesday and Thursday evening, 6.30 – 8.00pm and I run oneday workshops. In the New Year I will be available for one-to-one Yoga sessions. Classes are friendly and relaxed and the focus is on moving your body in the way that is right for you.

Have you heard about Regulation for Therapists?


here has been quite a bit of conflicting media coverage about regulation for complementary therapists in 2009 and several potential regulators coming along at once – just like buses! So it is important to explain this further.

The idea emerged from a House of Lords report, in 2000, which recommended Voluntary Self-Regulation as the way forward – to safeguard the public. Each organisation has developed transparent disciplinary procedures and requires minimum standards of training / Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Over the lifetime of this Directory therapists will be deciding if registration is relevant for their practice, or not. Meanwhile, ask your therapist the following questions. What training have you undertaken? Are you a member of a Professional Association? Are you insured? Do you undertake CPD? Then, when satisfied with their answers . . . build a good working partnership with them and enjoy your treatments! Some relevant websites: (lead consultation body).
