Hello my name is Frankie, I am a holistic mental health therapist and yoga teacher who combines science and spirituality. I have qualifications in psychotherapy, life coaching, CBT, hypnotherapy, rewind therapy, animal assisted therapy, yoga, massage, Reiki and more. I disagree with many mental health labels and have the mind set that, it is not about what is wrong with us, but about what has happened to us. I believe that illness; mental and physical and addiction is a symptom of trauma or stress; physical, emotional, sexual or environmental. I believe that we all have the power to overcome any challenge and all have the ability to heal. We can reprogram our minds and bodies, changing behaviours and patterns, eventually freeing ourselves from pain and toxic cycles.
These beliefs have not come from reading books and studying alone, my own personal experiences and working with clients have been testament to this theory. Several years ago my life did a complete 180 and I was opened up to a side of me that I didn’t know existed and to be quite frank didn’t believe in. I was sceptical of psychics and had no idea what energy healing was. I thought yoga was boring and couldn’t see how it was a form of exercise. Then after a hysterectomy, I had some intense experiences, which couldn’t be explained by science. I was left with no other option but to open my mind to a new way of thinking. I found new activities which I loved and in turn started to heal trauma which had affected my life for as long as I can remember. As I released trauma my physical and mental health improved. I became a believer! Once I saw the positive differences in my own life, I made it my mission to help others do the same.
We all have a light inside us, even when it seems dark, sometimes we just can’t find the switch. I facilitate a space which allows my clients to find that switch and doing this has made every part of my journey worth while!
