Transform Your Space
Often a child or teenager will spend hours in their room. As parents it can often be a place of great mystery and wonderment for us when we open those bedroom doors.
The Good Counsel specialist feng shui and design specialists work with parents and teenagers to make their own space the best retreat and haven it can be for your teenager of child.
This concept is where your teenager or child's living space or bedroom can be assessed and a new space designed to transform and create a healthy, age appropriate positive space that is conducive to study, relaxation and also restful sleep.
Introducing the teenagers favourite images they apsire to, access to music, meditation areas, calming and cooling colours, appropriate lighting for studying, relaxing and sleeping, decluttering, scent based therapies and reorganising are all part of the process or transformation.
Minimizing harsh lighting, social media access and computer and gaming in this space will be discussed with your teenager/child to ensure they are happy and healthy in their own personal space.
Yoga As Therapy
The transformative powers and healing benefits of yoga are far reaching for all ages and stages of life.
The therapeutic benefit comes in when a yoga class is designed to create balance through posture, breathing and meditation techniques.
Together, those three tools can trigger the relaxation response — the antidote to your body's stress response — and that's where the real healing happens.
Yoga assists us to access the parasympathetic nervous system to soothe and calm the physical body rather than operating from a constant flight or flight state.
Allow us to introduce you to a personally designed yoga sequence/or series that will focus on the concerns most pertinent to you from restorative benefits to a more trauma informed or specifically targeted sequence to address anxiety, depression and other imbalances or concerns.
You will come away felling calmer, lighter and able to cope with grace with the challenges that life throws at us.
