 Here are some of the ways you can learn –

  • Private lessons – Akin to learning to drive, the AT is like lessons for lightly carrying ourselves around through everyday activity. Research has shown the greater comparative benefit from a series of A.T. lessons .            Book a set of 3
  • Couples – Often you will notice your partner’s misuse more easily than they do themselves. Sometimes a gentle hand on the shoulder or neck can provide just the reminder needed to engage the AT protocol. Learn how to help each other and get results for both of you.
  •  Build a workshop – for your group of friends, fellow professionals, team, band, theatre company.

Don has run workshops for many groups including dental practitioners, radiographers, nurses, theatre companies and beginner swimmers!

Book a demonstration talk. WE can build the event based entirely on your needs and questions.

  •  An MOT! Even after a course of regular lessons, clever pupils always book the next M.O.T. or check up lesson after perhaps 3 or 6 months, before they finish the series. Just like our cars we want to ensure we remain roadworthy and safe and that we haven’t fallen back into old habits of use. A regular reminder with the hands of a teacher ensures new examples of ‘poor use’ can be corrected and long-lasting benefits hold long into the future.

Maybe you had lessons a long time ago and now something has changed and you want to reclaim that learning for todays issue. Easy, you can book a full MOT or a set of 3 to get you up and running again.

  •  Invest in a ‘Double UP’ –  2 practitioners 2 hours 2 ,mind-Body approaches.

Nuala and Don bringing their best together into a fantastic focussed  full mind- body session.Since Emotional ‘debris’ or pain  often gets stored in the body, many physical conditions and indeed habits can be transformed by bringing these 2 powerful methods together. Increasingly we are excited by how much freedom and release can be achieved when we bring our best to the service of the client.

Age is no limit!!
Change the habits of a lifetime!
