About Helen

Helen CritchleyWhy I work with energy
When I say that working with energy changed my life, I really mean it.

I discovered energy approaches while training as a hypnotherapist and went on to train in Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) and Matrix Reimprinting (MR; a specialist form of EFT).

In particular, I found that incorporating EEM techniques into my own life made a big difference to how I was feeling. Doing a set of energy exercises every day gave me energy I didn’t know I had. In addition, I started to experience a greater overall sense of well being and at times I would feel joyful for no reason.

Having lived “in my head” most of my life and had jobs that reflected this (teaching, copy-editing), the opportunity to “go into the body” as a way to relieve emotional baggage and enjoy life more was a revelation. Furthermore, I now know that personal growth does not have to be a long drawn-out process where you have to examine your past in detail, often painfully, and with little result. I also found that through energy work, I could change how I was feeling from the inside out, instead of forcing something to happen from the outside in. The better I felt in myself and about myself, the more at ease I felt, and things in my life that had previously seemed impossible, such as doing the work I love, became easier to achieve − and with less effort.

So, how can I help you?
I start from where you are and respond to what you bring to a session. Working together, we find our way through whatever is troubling you. There may be a specific issue you want to address (e.g. recurrent headaches, digestive problems). On the other hand, it may be something more general (e.g. being tired all the time, feeling anxious) or it may just be a vague feeling (e.g. “I just don’t feel like myself”). I will listen and I will use my knowledge to help you get to where you want to go by the shortest possible route. My overarching aim is to help you to find ways to feel better, whatever that means for you. When we feel better in ourselves, it feels easier to take a different perspective, and more possibilities then begin to open up for us.
