Angie’s love for Shiatsu was kindled more than a decade ago and as a practitioner she is particularly interested in the impact stress, anxiety and trauma have on the body-mind and the support and relief Shiatsu can offer sufferers.
Mandy's challenging yoga-style fitness class mixes yoga, cardio and body weight core exercises in a continuous yoga flow strengthening and toning the whole body.
Each week the classes can vary but they all start with a warm up and finish with a cool down, stretch and relaxation.
Katie believes that Pilates is the ultimate form of exercise to help strengthen, lengthen and tone the body and is also a valuable tool to assist during rehabilitation. Pilates compliments many other exercises with the focus on breathing, the core and alignment.

Pilates is a functional workout method and Jane believes that the exercises we struggle with most are the exercises we most need to do. She will work your body into positions or ranges of movement which are challenging for you - both in the class and in your daily life.

Counselling and Intimacy Coaching with Michelle

There are so many reasons for coming to counselling or coaching.
Loneliness and isolation
Self esteem and confidence
Intimacy and sexual issues
Anxiety and Depression
Growth and development
However most of us decided to find a therapist because we are struggling to have the life we want and we feel we need professional support to heal.
"Seeking connections is a necessity for healing.” Dr Gabor Mate'
My approach to counselling and intimacy coaching is through the exploration of the relationships we have with others and ourselves. I believe that the issues we struggle with as adults stem from the experiences and concepts of ourselves from childhood. We often unconsciously relate to ourselves and others from these parts. By providing a safe compassionate space it allows your exploration of these experiences your emotional and somatic (sensations in the body) response.
At their core Person-centred Counselling and Psychosexual Somatics® Therapy (PST) approaches have similar principles of; autonomy, empathy, compassion and non-judgement.
However PST goes deeper offering a gentle somatic way of exploring the past in connection with the present, that doesn't just apply to intimacy issues. Through somatic experience and embodiment the past can be integrated and healed to transform the present.

DR SARAH SPENCER
Aestheticsand Menopause Doctor
Dr Sarah Spencer is an experienced Sussex based GP specialising in womens health and dermatology. She is a British Menopause Society (BMS) member and is working towards become an accredited BMS specialist. She holds the diploma from the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London. She qualified in 2005 from St George’s, University of London and then completed her GP training on
the south coast to become a GP in 2010.
With the increasing demands and pressures on the NHS, Dr Spencer found that her peri-menopausal and menopausal patients were not getting the care they needed. There was never enough time to adequately explore all the issues in this far reaching and multi layered phase of life. This realisation has led her to start Spencer Aesthetics and Medical where women can really manage their menopausal issues with the attention they deserve and receive an individualised approach to their care.
Dr Spencer’s other passion is dermatology, so she is delighted to be able to combine this with her interest in menopausal care to bring Spencer Aesthetics and Medical to life. She has many years of experience with various medical
dermatological conditions, and highly aware of the interface of appearance
and the confidence this can bring.
Dermatological concerns such as acne, eczema and psoriasis can also be
managed where home treatments have been unsuccessful. Her experience
with dermoscopy (skin microscopy) enables on the spot diagnosis of
concerning lesions which might have caused anxiety or where there may have been a delay to accessing care.
Dr Spencer also offers a full selection of aesthetic treatments to rejuvenate the skin, including anti-wrinkle injectables, dermal fillers and medical grade skin care from Obagi and Alumier. If you have come for a medical issue, you will never be pressured into any aesthetic treatment that you have not specifically requested, although Dr Spencer will be happy to explain what is available.
As well as continuing her busy NHS job and other GP work, Dr Spencer is also a mum of 2 young girls, bake off wannabe and major film nerd.
