Your Soul Sanctuary

Our goal is to teach you how to heal yourself


About


My name is Rebecca Bradley and I have a BA Hons Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy. I am also trained in Reiki and Rahanni Celestial Healing. At Your Soul Sanctuary we believe in providing healing and education to people so that they can heal and empower themselves.


We provide anxiety and stress management and a range of holistic therapies. Depending on what your needs are we have you covered. If you just need help relaxing or are having issues with negative thinking Your Soul Sanctuary can help. We also provide counselling and Angel healing therapy. I believe in this world today we need a safe place to relax and heal our souls. If we can get the body to relax, we can achieve relaxation of the mind. For an appointment please do not hesitate to contact us.


Counselling

Sometimes we just need a place we can go to, where we can be completely ourselves and not be judged. This is what counselling is all about. At Your Soul Sanctuary we believe in person-centered counselling. This means we must provide a space where the client is held in complete positive regard and not judged in anyway. Counselling will help the person accept themselves. We also provide a safe place that a person can relax and go through any emotions they may need to. We are here to offer a listening ear and support. We can also teach you tactics to help to heal yourself.


Anxiety


Anxiety is most definitely not all in the mind!


Anxiety is a symptom of the stress response which is known as the fight or flight response. Think of, back in the day when we were cavemen and we had to fight animals or flee from animals to survive. Our sense of danger has not evolved much from the days of being a caveman. When we perceive any threat to our survival or the survival of those, we love our brain sends distress signals to our body's and this begins a process in our bodies which is not in the mind. There are a few physical things that happen. Therefore, you may feel your heart racing, numbness and tingling in arms and legs, dizziness and overall feeling of panic. These things are really happening your body. You are not imagining any of these symptoms. These symptoms on their own are not life threatening but they sure are scary and over time too much stress will be harmful for your health.


The Science bit:

When the body experiences a life-threatening event or perceived life-threatening event, a part of the brain called the amygdala sends a distress signal to the hypothalamus part of the brain. This part of the brain sends all the signals to the rest of the body so that the person can fight or run due to the adrenaline. According to Harvard Health 2019 “When the amygdala sends the distress signal, the hypothalamus sends signals to the adrenal glands, the adrenal glands then pump adrenaline into the bloodstream.” When adrenaline flows around the body via the bloodstream it brings about a few changes to the body. Harvard Health 2019 states that “the heart beats faster, pushing blood to the muscles, heart and other vital organs, pulse rate and blood pressure are raised. The lungs open wide so they can take in oxygen, adrenaline causes glucose to be released to give extra energy.” This is a good thing if the body is in danger or under threat but sometimes a person’s stress response will be activated because of a build-up of stress in the body. This can cause a person to experience all these changes for no apparent reason and this is how anxiety is caused.


Long Term Fight or Flight:

When the body is in fight or flight mode the immune system, digestive system and reproductive system are switched off to save energy for the fight or flight. It is not good if your body is constantly in fight or flight mode.


Don’t worry it can be stopped:

To come out of flight or fight mode the body just needs to learn to relax. Once you relax fully the body must return to normal. Just relax people say, but when you are highly stressed, and your body has been used to being in the fight or flight mode this can be very hard. Trauma and fear can cause havoc with the mind and body so a little help to teach the body to relax is all that is needed. Any relaxation techniques used can be beneficial to teach the body to relax. Reiki, Healing Work, Meditation or just Breathing can help. Also, at Your Soul Sanctuary we believe education is key and learning about what is happening your body can really help. You can begin to recognise triggers and work through what is happening. The main thing is that you know you are safe, and that anxiety is just your bodies reaction to stress. If you would like a consultation at Your Soul Sanctuary, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy will help you look at your thinking patterns and change any negative thinking. The reason for this is because your thoughts affect your emotions and your moods. They all affect each other. Negative thoughts create negative emotions and moods. This causes unnecessary stress to you and we don’t want that for you.



The Ten Forms of Irrational Thinking:

We are all guilty of thinking irrational thoughts. Negative thinking can be very detrimental to our mental health. It can be hard to realise when we are caught in a negative thinking pattern. When we do recognise that we are thinking irrational thoughts we can change our thinking to more positive rational thinking. Here are some examples of irrational thinking. We are all guilty of these from time to time but looking at these thoughts more can help you change your perspective. If we can change our thought’s, we can change our lives for the better. We can even start to attract all the things into our lives that we want instead of attracting negativity.


All or nothing thinking

You see things in black or white categories. If a situation falls short of perfect, you see it as a total failure


Overgeneralization

You see a single negative event, such as a romantic rejection or a career reversal, as a never ending pattern of defeat by using words such as “always” or “never” when you think about it.


Mental filter

You pick out a single negative detail and dwell on it exclusively, so that your vision of reality becomes darkened, like the drop of ink that discolors a beaker of water.


Discounting the positive

You reject positive experiences by insisting that they don’t count. If you do a good job, you may tell yourself that it wasn’t good enough or that anyone could have done as well. Discounting the positives takes the joy out of life and makes you feel inadequate and unrewarded.


Jumping to conclusions:

You interpret things negatively when there are no facts to support your conclusion. Mind Reading: Without checking it out, you conclude that someone is reacting negatively towards you. Fortune Telling: You predict things will turn out badly. Before a test you may tell yourself, “im really going to blow this one” “im going to fail”. If your depressed you may tell yourself “ill never get better”.


Magnification

You exaggerate the importance of your problems and shortcomings, or you minimise the importance of your desirable qualities, this is also called the “binocular trick.”


Emotional Reasoning

You assume that your negative emotions necessarily reflect the way things really are


Should Statements

You tell yourself that things should be the way you hoped or expected them to be for example “I should have won that race”. “I shouldn’t have made so many mistakes.” “Should statements” that are directed against yourself lead to guilt and frustration. Should statements that are directed against other people or the world in general, lead to anger and frustration. “He shouldn’t be so stubborn or argumentative.”


Labelling

Labelling is an extreme form of all-or-nothing thinking. Instead of saying “I made a mistake” you attach a negative label to yourself “Im a loser” you might label yourself a fool or a failure. Labelling is quite irrational because you are not the same as what you do. Human beings exist, but “fools” and “failures” do not. These labels are just useless abstractions that lead to anger, anxiety, frustration and low self-esteem.


Personalisation and Blame

Personalisation comes when you hold yourself personally responsible for an event that isn’t entirely under your control.

Some people do the opposite. They blame other people or their circumstances for their problems, and they overlook the way they might be contributing to the problem. “the reason my marriage is so bad is because my spouse is totally unreasonable”. Blame usually doesn’t work very well because other people will resent being scapegoated and they will just put the blame right back to you.

Angel Energy Healing (Cards)

We all have a guardian Angel. You may have felt a presence in the times of your life which have been particularly hard. There are also numerous Angels we can call on for different things in our lives. Archangel Michael is useful for protecting us, our property and loved ones from harm. Archangel Raphael is the Angel for healing and can be called upon to help our loved ones or ourselves to heal. Archangel Chamuel is the Angel of love and new careers. Depending on what is happening in your life at the moment, different Angels are around you. At Your Soul Sanctuary we use Kyle Gray’s Angel Cards to help you connect with the Angels you may need at this moment, and in the near future.

Reiki

Reiki is an ancient healing therapy. It helps restore balance and harmony to mind body and spirit. Reiki would really help you relax and one hour of reiki can be the equivalent of 4 hours sleep. There are many benefits of reiki in this fast-paced world we live in. It is a universal energy that surrounds all life. It is not tied to any religion and has been used all over the world to heal people. During a session you will lie down on a plinth and the practitioner will place their hands in certain positions to send healing to different areas of your body. It is an extremely relaxing experience and many people experience it like a deep meditation but with the added benefit of healing.

Rahanni Celestial Healing

Rahanni is a healing modality of balance. It helps release all fear-based ways of thinking and negativity. It is a life force energy that is channelled by the practitioner. The practitioner will call on Angels and other celestial beings to heal the client. When you attend a Rahanni Healing Session it is much like Reiki. It is a non- intrusive, hands on complementary therapy. You will relax as the practitioner positions their hands on your head, shoulders, stomach, knees and feet. The client will benefit greatly from the relaxation and healing Rahanni offers. If you would like to have a consultation contact us any time.
