Tory Macdonald-Counsellor

Tory Macdonald

Following many years of working in London, I embarked on my first Counselling course in September 2004 and knew immediately that Counselling was what I wanted to do.  After completing my initial training at Orpington College in Kent, I moved to Eastbourne and continued my Counselling studies at Sussex Downs College, finishing in August 2006.  In December 2009 I became a qualified Samaritan.  I now work as a private Counsellor in Eastbourne and am also the school Counsellor at Willingdon Community School.

Often when we are in despair, the people closest to us are the ones that we find the hardest to talk to – perhaps because we don’t want to worry or burden them, or because we don’t want to appear to be weak.  We may fear that discussing our difficulties with family and friends will cause arguments and that our issues would not be heard properly, nor understood.

Talking about your problems in a safe and comfortable counselling setting — openly and without fear of being judged – is without doubt the first step to resolving them.

Listening to You follows the principles of Carl Rogers’ Person-Centred counselling.  By providing a comfortable, non-judgemental environment and by demonstrating congruence, empathy and unconditional positive regard, the person seeking help will be guided towards finding their own solutions to their problems.

Amy Law SmithAmy Law-Smith – Counsellor

I started my counselling journey in 2008, doing a counselling skills course which I loved – a lack of self belief and
trust in my inner knowing resulted in me taking a different path until 2013.

Instead I trained as Shiatsu Practitioner, qualifying in 2011 and set up in private practice. I took some time off at the end of 2013 and during this period of stillness I learnt that whilst I love Shiatsu, it wasn’t my true calling.

It was within this period of stillness that I was able to hear my inner voice again and I found myself committing to training as a Counsellor. From the moment I committed things fell into place, and I as aware of the power of trusting in the process and in spiritual timing.

I now work privately as a Counsellor and also volunteer at St Wilfrids Hospice in Eastbourne,offering clients support both pre and post bereavement.

I offer a space that is confidential and welcoming and always work to provide understanding, acceptance, safety and support. A place where patterns and processes can surface and unfold, allowing the path to reveal itself, at a pace that feels right for you.

I love my work and I love the people that I work with, it is a privilege to be alongside another on their journey and to witness change and the emergence of a life that is more fulfilling and authentic.

Hi I’m Hannah,

I am a chartered physiotherapist who qualified in London in 2012, since then I have gained extensive experience in movement analysis and rehabilitation. My time has been spent working both as a senior physiotherapist for the NHS where my focus is around orthopaedic and neurological rehabilitation and part time in the private sector where i work closely with a wide variety of musculoskeletal pain, conditions and changes in function.

My goal is to identify the cause of your pain as well as providing treatment to help reduce it. This tends to include a thorough assessment, detailed movement analysis and an holistic approach to treatment. Successful treatment helps you develop new knowledge and understanding of your pain as well as providing you with the skills and support to improve strength, control and flexibility. The aim is to enable you to restore efficient pain free movement that is meaningful to you.

Being a physiotherapist who practises yoga, mindfulness and meditation I have a thorough understanding of the interconnection between our mind and body. My approach to physiotherapy is very much holistic, considering all aspects of you, as a whole person. I am very particular about the places in which I offer physiotherapy, for me the environment in which you work towards healing and recovery is important.

Some of my treatments may include the prescription of mindful movement, client specific exercise, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, joint mobilisation, advice and education all with the aim of assisting recovery, healing and optimal function.

I love what I do, physiotherapy is a passion for me. I feel privileged to be part of so many peoples journeys to recovery and improved quality of life.

At the Well Being Centre every Friday from 09.00 – 13.00.

Member of The Health and Care Professions Council : Member of Chartered Society of Physiotherapy

Wonderfully relaxing, Indian head massage is based on the Ayurvedic system of healing which has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. It involves a massage to the head, face, upper back, shoulders, arms and hands that relieves tension in the muscles; it can be relaxing, stimulating and invigorating.Indian  Head Massage is a technique of manipulating soft tissues in the shoulders,upper back and scalp.

The skull is covered with a thin layer of muscle, which tightens when we’re tense, resulting in headaches and feelings of anxiety. By stimulating and relaxing this muscle, a head massage can improve blood flow, reduce the level of anxiety and relax your whole body.A combination of rhythmic strokes will soothe and rebalance the energy flow, creating feelings of ease and peace.

Shiatsu is a healing art, originating in Japan, which uses the power of touch and pressure to enable each of us to contact our own natural self -healing qualities. In a Shiatsu session the Practitioner uses pressure with thumbs, fingers, palms, and sometimes knees, elbows and feet, to induce deep relaxation and a feeling of well being. It is sometimes dynamic, sometimes seemingly quite static, involving pressure on the limbs and torso, as well as rotations, the kneading and releasing of tight muscles and supporting areas of weakness.

To receive, Shiatsu is deeply relaxing and yet invigorating, leaving a feeling of tranquillity and a sense of being in touch with every part of one’s body. Giving Shiatsu is a like performing a moving meditation and often leaves the giver feeling as balanced and energized as the receiver.

Shiatsu was developed from traditional oriental massage and, in common with acupuncture and other oriental therapies, it works on the body’s energetic system, using the network of meridians, or energy pathways, which connect to the internal organs, as well as relating to our emotional, psychological, spiritual  harmony and well being.

The concept of the body as an ‘energetic’ organism comes from ancient Chinese thought, and through centuries of experience and study it has evolved into a system of medical theory and practice which is rich, poetic and life changing! This concept is now increasingly being acknowledged and explored in the West. Energy, known as Ki in Japanese (Qi in Chinese), flows through the body, rather like a system of rivers. Things may happen to upset the smooth flow of Ki causing blockages in some areas, weaknesses or stagnant pools in others. These in turn may lead to physical symptoms, psychological or emotional disturbance, or a feeling that ‘things are just not right’!

Shiatsu uses physical pressure and meridian stretches to unblock the ‘dams’-which show up as tight muscles and areas of stiffness-and revitalize the empty areas-which may feel cold, weak or just needing to be held. Oriental medical theory provides a framework by which the Shiatsu practitioner can assess the body’s energetic state and needs, and can explain why the body holds tension in certain areas or points and feels weak in others.
