I offer consultations and tutoring in 1. sleep insomnia solutions 2. how to live an holistic healthfy life, for a better life-work balance and to help you create what I call a 'breathing space' in your life.

If you experience sleep problems and/or feel that your stressful life is controlling you then a series of coaching sessions can really help you to feel healthier and happier.

I've studied and applied many holistic techniques for the past 20+ years and work one to one with individuals and in groups eg within companies.

I am available to give online consultations via Skype.

Some of the techniques I incorporate in my sessions are:
1. meditation and relaxation skills aimed at busy people to give practical techniques to bring calmness and peace of mind.

2. De-cluttering your home/work environment as a wonderful way to freshen up your life. Much easier when someone else is there to guide you through this emotional rollercoaster.

3. Creative Expressions workshops aim to get that right brain of yours into an innovative frame of mind, to express your yearnings and discover your potential.

4. Qi gong (chi gong) is an ideal basis of healthy exercise. Movement and breathing for health and well being based on ancient oriental teachings.

5 other supportive therapies etc: Bach Flower Remedies, EFT

Apart from the teaching I love Salsa dancing and living a creative life (going for country walks, making seasonal natural eats/drinks like Sloe Gin, I adore raw chocolate and watching the birds nest outside my window ... and taking time to smell the roses on the way)

Schools, Colleges, Meditation Relaxation and Stress Release for Teachers, Students

Schoolboys at the leading public school, Tonbridge School, in Kent, are receiving weekly 40-minute classes in meditation and stress relief. As reported by Andrew Hough, the Telegraph, 12 Jan 2010

The school’s year 10 pupils’ “mindfulness” course, which will last for two months, is said to be one of the first in the country, which was designed to develop skills in concentration and to combat anxiety.

Richard Burnett, A Tonbridge housemaster who is leading the course, said the course demanded a “culture change” in the perceptions of silence for teachers and pupils.

Up to 80% of visits to the GP are stress related. So if you found a way to bring a feeling of inner peace and calm to combat life's stress, would you be willing to spend a few hours and a few pounds to investigate this?

Improve your physical health, lower blood pressure, heart rate and reduce anxiety. Improve oxygen consumption and therefore brain power, decision making and gain much improved quality of sleep. So you will awake much fresher with increased creative thinking and better concentration capacity.

Bring a positive change to your world, your life and those around you. people will see the true, happier side of your nature. Linzi has been teaching meditation and techniques for stress reduction for some years and can now offer this to students and teachers at colleges and schools. She is qualified as a teacher and has worked for East Surrey College and the Workers Educational Association, as well as privately.

The course enables learners to explore and experience different techniques to find what suits you best.

What a few people have said about Linzi's course:
"feels like it has worked... felt really good, alive"
"I enjoyed being in the peaceful state. Thank you an enjoyable, relaxing and informative course"
"I am delighted with the help you have given me, I am not panicked as much especially when driving."

THE SMALL PRINT

As standard I require 24 hours notice of cancellation or change of appointment, leaving a message given by telephone. Or the full consultancy fee for that session will be applied/billed. Do not simply leave me an email and think I will pick it up in time.
I appreciate there may be times when less than 24 hours notice is available, say in an emergency. In these instances then we can discuss the matter.
Thank you for your consideration.
