Claire Guckian

Sound Healing Practitioner


Claire is a certified Medical Intuitive and is trained in two highly prestigious modalities called Meridian Energetics and Crystalline Harmonics. Recently she also completed a Sound Healing Practitioner training using the Alchemy Crystal Bowls.


Claire is a highly sensitive intuitive and can pinpoint exactly where energy is not flowing in the most efficient way through your body. Because of this imbalance in your energy, you may present symptoms of a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual nature. With Claire’s help, the resulting shifts allow you to feel increased energy and balance in every area of your life.


The focus in all of Claire’s sessions is to help her clients to realise their true potential by opening them up fully to their connection to Source/God. The use of sound and energy medicine during Claire’s sessions is very powerful while also deeply relaxing. Using sound and energy inspires her clients to make huge changes in every area of their life through the insight, guidance and inspiration they receive during and after sessions.

Justyna Isobel Matejek

BodyMind Counselling “BMC”

Individual and group sessions 


Justyna Isobel Matejek graduated BA(Hons) Counselling at Essex University and is a registered Person-Centred Counsellor in British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), as well as Dance of Awareness Practitioner (elements of Body and Movement Psychotherapy). She created BodyMind Counselling “BMC” which is a process that addresses the problem from two angles: body and mind. 

Justyna`s practice embodies genuineness and empathy within a safe, warm, and holding relationship; allowing you to explore areas of concern which may help restore clarity of mind and balance in your body.

Working primary with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, body image issues, emotional difficulties, low mood, and low self-esteem; but she is also an open-minded practitioner with a broad psychological and psychotherapeutic knowledge. She holds over 10 years of experience working with people with mental health and learning disabilities and continuing professional development as a body-mind counsellor.


“BMC” session may include:

Session starts from getting to know each other and assessing your needs. 

Every session may bring different focus.

Gentle sensing and grounding exercises can be suggested

Talking about emotions felt in the body and out of the body

Verbal and nonverbal expression.

Creativity and imagination to support self exploration and self-expression

“Staying with” – exploring concerns  

Letting go- catharsis

 

The BMC is a safe and non-directive process where autonomous freedom of expression and choice informs your direction. Justyna will guide you throughout the session as you develop further your person-centred relationship. She works with the body and mind holistically, and holds the belief that body speaks its stories, and communicates its emotions, feelings, and experiences, therefore working with both body and mind may increase self-understanding, self-awareness and help in gaining an insight into your own embodied presence. “BMC” is like Person-Centred Counselling however it includes elements of body psychology and mindfulness.
