Anxiety (2)

 

Evidence based treatment for anxiety and stress conditions…

Do you feel like you’re in a constant battle with stress, anxiety or overwhelm…

Do you wish you could feel better but can’t find anything that works?

 

I know how you feel and I can help… Hi, I’m Meegan and I work with people just like you – people, who for whatever reason, are struggling with anxiety, panic attacks and general stress conditions.

Maybe you’ve tried mainstream medicine by itself and found it just doesn’t give you what you need. Or maybe you tried counselling, and the anxiety still didn’t go away. Maybe you’ve even reached the point where you’re starting to feel desperate. No matter what you try, nothing actually works.

Until you just don’t know what to do.

Believe it or not…

…no matter how bad you feel
…however long you’ve been feeling this way
…however many things you’ve tried,
…deep within your body are the answers that you’ve been seeking.

Your body knows how to heal. You just have to access that part of yourself to be able to put your body’s wisdom to work for you.

This is where I come in.

The work I do is called Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a non-invasive treatment which originated within osteopathy. It works directly with the body’s natural capacity for self repair to treat a wide range of conditions, including anxiety.

But what it really is, beyond the title, is about listening deeply to your body and your whole system and letting your body’s own organizing principle, that healing capacity within you, open the doorway to healing.

Your body knows what it wants to do, it just doesn’t know how to do it. And this is where I can help.

I’m the person that can help you find this healing place within your body and activate the part that knows how to heal…

I specialise in the treatment of anxiety, panic disorders and Pyroluria.

I’m a craniosacral therapist, a qualified counsellor, and a mindfulness teacher, and I integrate these three modalities in a unique way to help you.

Combining these things together leads to a deeper kind of healing of your anxiety symptoms. Many clients have experienced significant lessening and even resolution of their anxiety symptoms through this approach.

It doesn’t matter what treatment you are currently trying, whether it’s counselling, medication, or natural medicine – if you are not getting the results you want – working with me can help. (Craniosacral therapy is a complementary therapy, it works harmoniously with all other forms of treatment.)

By listening to the memories, challenges and underlying patterns held within your body’s memory, I can help you to feel better, reduce and even eliminate anxiety symptoms and find your sense of inner peace again.

I am a registered Craniosacral Therapist (BCST), qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor, a teacher of mindfulness and meditation, and over the last 25 years I’ve trained extensively in various forms of physical, mental, emotional and energetic healing. I’m a registered Natural Therapies Practitioner with Natural Health Practitioners of New Zealand, and an approved service provider for Taranaki Primary Connections.

But this isn’t just my training, I’ve also lived this journey.

When I was in my twenties I was extremely sick with Crohn’s disease, which is a type of inflammatory bowel disease, I tried all the traditional treatments and nothing worked.

I knew that the answers had to be there, hidden somewhere within my body. My body had to know what to do. So I set out on a quest to find those answers, and as a result, I’ve been healthy and well for over 15 years.

Today, my mission is to share what I learned with other people who are suffering.

So I want you to know — there is life beyond anxiety. I know you have it within you to feel better. And it’s my mission to help you lessen the hold anxiety has on your life.

I am here – and I’m ready to help.

If this feels right for you, I hope you will join me and open your own healing doorway.

 

What can you expect from your Craniosacral Therapy session?

During the first session, we’ll discuss the issues and symptoms that you’re hoping to change and heal, as well as a little about your background, your early life and any significant events in your life. I will then follow the energetic threads to find the source of the problem, and from there the best way to approach the work will emerge.

Together, we decide on a useful treatment plan during your first appointment. I may also suggest mindfulness based tools you can use at home to further reduce anxiety symptoms.

During the treatment session the client typically lies or sits on a treatment table fully clothed. I will use a very light touch to “listen” to the body’s intrinsic movements.

I will often begin the session by placing my hands lightly on the client’s feet. From here the subtle movements and patterns of restrictions and ease may be felt.  I may then move to other areas of the body, often to the sacrum at the base of the spine or to the shoulders or head.  In this work we do not manipulate or adjust bones or tissue.

Throughout the session you may feel a range of sensations such as tingling, buzzing, feelings of hot or cold. Sometimes you may feel small movements or adjustments taking place, or sometimes, you may feel nothing. Often a client will experience a deep sense of calm and relaxation or may sleep deeply.  Any or all of the above is normal and welcomed as part of the healing process.

 

What clients say…

“I totally recommend Meegan for Craniosacral Therapy. I felt our sessions were effective, the results for me were measurable almost instantly.” Anon

“Meegan has a gift. A real gift. In just a half hour, she helped me find both inner-calm and confidence. She taught me fabulous new techniques to release, forgive, and let go. I’m blown away and totally wowed.”

a little more about me…Meegan-portrait-web

Whether you know it or not, you were born with a natural capacity for health and well-being. Just as your body instinctively knows how to heal a cut, you also have the inner “wisdom software” that tells your system how to release stress, restore calm and how to heal. My work centers on helping you to uncover and engage this powerful “wisdom software” for increased health and well-being on all levels – mind, body & soul.

For the past twenty years I have trained and studied extensively in the field of mind-body therapy and healing. It is my mission to bring this kind of healing into the mainstream, to help more people discover their own “wisdom software” and to know that healing can be as natural and as everyday as breathing.

I am a registered Craniosacral Therapist (BCST) and Psychosynthesis Counsellor, and teacher of mindfulness. I have practised meditation for 25 years and I have worked with individuals in private practice for around 15 years and regularly facilitate retreats and workshops in New Plymouth.

In clinic, I specialise in working with individuals experiencing anxiety and stress conditions, and I love to teach my clients mindfulness-based approaches that support their health and wellbeing.

I live in central New Plymouth with my husband, two daughters, dog, cat, and two happy roaming chickens.
