Therapies/Services offered at Koru Corner:


"A one on one session where I create a safe space to connect and communicate with loved ones passed over, and to gain guidance and insight from your higher self and spiritual guides.

Currently I receive most of the channelled information via clairsentience, a "knowing", and kinesthetic insight where I am shown, or feel, physical sensations in my own body which relate specifically to the source I am channelling. As the session progresses I will describe what is being shown and where my hands are being led. It is important for you to take notes and closely follow what my hands are doing as you may have your own interpretation of certain movements."  Further reading here:

Energy healing channels the Life Force/Chi/Prana to encourage a state of physical, mental and spiritual balance and is a profoundly relaxing and soothing experience. Most conditions can benefit in some way as Reiki reconnects you with, and stimulates, your inherent self-healing ability. You remain fully clothed during the session. Healing is channelled from the Crown to Root chakras and through to your feet, or as guided.

Typical client feedback: A calmer demeanour, improved sleep, increased clarity and focus, healthier stress management, alleviation of pain.

Holistic Pulsing is a mind-body-centered approach, an "off-shoot" of the Structural Integration group of therapies which uses the power of gentle rhythmic touch and movement. The pulsing practitioner applies easy rocking, stretching and opening movements to the pulsee, creating a wave-like motion throughout the whole body. Holistic Pulsing encourages structural integration, and a vibrational healing which continues for days after a session and both physical and mental impingements can appear to dissolve.

Hypnotherapy uses the state of hypnosis (the trance state) to treat a variety of medical and psychological problems. Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness which you can naturally enter so that useful suggestions may be given directly to your subconscious mind. In hypnosis, there is heightened concentration for the specific purpose of accessing your potential, changing self-limiting beliefs, correcting unhealthy behaviours, and gaining insight and wisdom. Hypnotherapy often succeeds where other more conventional methods of treatment have not produced results.

A psychic reading can help you bring insight and understanding to an issue by offering you a fresh perspective on what you already know, but are  perhaps unwilling or unable to see at this time.  A reading can help guide you on your Journey by helping with clarity, insight and detachment with your feelings, thoughts, dreams, and aspirations. A reading may offer you a reflection of your past, present and possible future; and can be useful to help with certain issues or clarification of situations happening in your life at the present time.

Smoking is not generally a difficult habit to correct with Hypnotherapy unless there is a strong emotional attachment to the behaviour and most cases I have worked with have been pretty straight forward, textbook cases. I work with you to deal with the habit element, the cravings (emotional AND physical) as well as smoking as a stress response and (perceived) relaxant and to find practical and realistic resources that will work for you and your lifestyle and daily routine.
