With a background in Education and a multiple skill set (MA SEN, BA (Hons) Ed, Cert Counselling, Wellbeing Coaching, NLP, EFT, Hypnotherapy, Reiki Master & Mindfulness facilitator), over the years, Philomena has worked with and trained people of all ages and from all walks of life. Her skill is in engaging people, making them feel valued for who they are & encouraging individuals to explore the choices they have in life in order to live to their true potential.
Philomena’s passion is in helping and motivating people to unlock their true potential and gain access to their own well of happiness, with wellbeing and sustainability being a driving force.
I facilitate life coaching, wellbeing coaching and mindfulness sessions and also give Reiki/ Sound-healing reiki from the Wellbeing Studio within Barnabas House. It’s very special space which radiates positive energies. I can also work from the comfort of the client’s own home should that be required.
For Mindfulness training sessions I work with individuals and groups in a variety of settings. While I am confident that Mindfulness can bring about many benefits to the individual, I also stress that it is a skill and not a therapy. To this end, and to ensure the safety of, and positive outcomes for, the client, I may, when appropriate, signpost to another therapist.
Combining practices learned over the last 30 years, I create bespoke holistic retreats and workshops tailored to offer participants tools for immediate and effective use in their lives. I am passionate about teaching the body/mind connection using Mindfulness, NLP and other holistic practices, enhancing understanding through current scientific and neurological findings.
In addition to individual Life-coaching, Well-being Coaching and Reiki sessions at her Wellbeing and Mindfulness Studio at Barnabas Arts House, Philomena has run wellbeing retreat days, drop-in mindfulness sessions for the community and currently leads ongoing mindfulness meditation sessions at Barnabas Arts House. She has facilitated numerous bespoke workshops for participants of SEWREC, Charter Housing and other projects including delivering a day of sound -healing Reiki to staff at a London Primary school.
