Sally cocker has been Mentoring and Coaching people for over 17 years. Starting with a basic Counselling qualification she knew that this was not the answer for everybody. Working with issues such as drug and alcohol addiction and families struggling to just get by in life, she realised there was a gap in the market to provide a therapy around progression.
Her innovative therapy is where you can make a conscientious, personal investment in progressing your life to where you feel you are needing to be. This practice is a very precious gift to give yourself. It gives you an opportunity to indulge in the experience of a life with "wide margins" and taste the experience of "just being" and learning to love yourself completely.
The Programme is a place where you can be 'you' and recover a sense of personal presence and well-being. They are of benefit to people from all walks of life. They can include both guided and silent meditation, yoga and chi energy practice, workshops and group discussion. Many people would yearn for a week's retreat but do not have the funds nor the opportunity. These Programmes bring together the qualities of a week long retreat, without the price tag or time away from your family or your commitments. Home study/practice is part of this Programme and is essential to feel the full benefits.
On this Programme you will adapt ways to build resilience and learn how to ‘bounce back’ from life's challenges that we often face. Releasing our true self can help us understand how we can become more resilient and prevent us from becoming overwhelmed by daily stress. The skills you will learn will enable you to not only accept the hurdles of life, but to welcome them as part of your journey. By taking some time to focus on how we feel about our struggles, we can begin to feel less overcome by the emotions. Becoming enlightened about 'the self' helps to eventually restore our natural balance and bring about a feeling of calm.
Your experience will also allow you to feel a sense of relaxation and become free from tension and anxiety. We will look at some of the causes of anxiety and the ways in which you can reduce stress in your life. You will also learn practical techniques which will aid you in becoming more relaxed over a more prolonged period of time.
Ever had a time in your life when your brain just wouldn’t shut up?
Left to itself, the mind wanders through all kinds of thoughts. In fact, the average person spends 47% of their lives ‘mind wondering’!
These thoughts will often be about something that happened in the past or something that might happen in the future – and they are often negative.
Why is thinking often negative?
We’re born worriers. Scientists believe that our brains have evolved a “negativity bias”, meaning we’re drawn to threats more than opportunities. We’re likely to detect negative information faster than positive information and generally have a background level of anxiety as our brain monitors the environment for possible threats.
Thinking can be very useful. But most of us spend too much time obsessing about things that have already passed, or worrying about things that might happen in the future. This stresses us out and (let’s admit it) rarely solves the problems.
Some of us want more calm, focus and enjoyment from life. Working towards a state of inner happiness is the key to moving through difficulties and challenges in life. Sally Cocker has provided the opportunity for clients to discover this insight and realise life is what happens on the inside, not the outside.

Reiki healing sessions are very effective in providing the body, mind and spirt with clear and invigorating energy. Reiki enables body and mind to heal faster, process daily life with more ease and enjoyment and help move beyond the limitations. Even one session is very beneficial, but for a deeper change a course of 6 sessions is an excellent way to boost the entire system.
Reiki is the most natural and non-invasive healing technique that promotes relaxation and body's innate healing abilities. It treats the whole person and can be used for any condition or imbalance.
People often experience heat coming from the practitioner's hands, occasionally the energy is cold, cutting through the blockages in order to loosen them. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.
Some people fall into a deep, sleep like meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic and very spiritual, and sometimes the first session in particular may be uneventful, although somehow, they feel much better afterwards. Everybody feels some kind of shift with a deeper sense of self but the most common experience is an immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation.
