Relaxing Meditations


And Still I Rise


Our philosophy is firmly anchored in the belief that there is no failure in trying. The person who keeps giving the best account of themselves whatever issues and challenges they face is already victorious. Victory does not necessarily mean you cross the line first because victory is also about knowing how to embrace defeat, in order that we are not defeated.


The one who can accept what the moment presents them with, but continues to rise, is the one who will reach her desired destination. This simple but powerful meditation will remind you it’s only how many times you rise that matters. You are not defined by how many times you fall.


Change is a Process


This is another of our unique meditations, which will help you to better understand how you can achieve your life goals. The more we understand the nature of change and work with her rather than against her, the more our preferred outcomes are likely to occur.


Change is a Process Not an Event is one of our informational/instructional meditations. Please use it as a template to strike up a positive conversation with yourself, time and life’s possibilities. The more you listen the better the results will be.


Listening… The Jewel in the Crown


There is now much talk of kindness, compassion and forgiveness and rightly so. If we really are to discover the better angels of our nature, then we unquestionably need to become acquainted with these three giants. Alongside these an honest heart, gratitude and humility are essential. Surely if we walk with them by our sides our destination is assured; failure simply wouldn’t be an option.


And yet this list of great virtues is incomplete without the jewel in the crown. Listening is the jewel… that guarantees our growth and success. This beautiful hypnotic meditation will invite you to ‘listen in’, in order that you can truly hear what you need to enhance your heart and soul.


Who Are You Really?


Who are you really?

This is arguably the most important question we will ever ask ourselves – and hopefully answer. This is because until we know who we are we are unlikely to be able to fulfill our reason for being here.


So we invite you to listen to this meditation with your mind and heart open. Allow yourself to drop into the sea of consciousness and see what emerges. The more you ponder this age-old question the more likely you are to find the answer. This meditation will help you to do just that.


Calendar 2021


The year 2020 has been a year like no other.  The world has been turned on its head; hearts and minds too.  There has been an upsurge in fear and uncertainty, bringing with it a paralysis of the mind and the spirit.

The landscape for many has changed, arguably for ever.  So, how do we find ways to live with this new norm? – one that is changing all the time, leaving us with little feeling of security and clarity.

The more you focus on what you can’t do and can’t change, the more you will be destabilised.  Make 2021 the year of learning the language of the soul.

As you become fluent in this language, the language beyond sound, you realise you can hold yourself together even when things are falling apart around you.  You can be your own anchor in the storm.

“When nothing is sure, everything is possible “.

Margaret Drabble (1939 – present)


F.A.L.L. – Face, Acknowledge and Lovingly Let Go


It may seem a paradox to invite you to FALL when you want to rise, but it is often in the ‘leaning into’ something that you are wary of, even afraid of, that you are able to become free of it. Our reluctance and fear keep us stuck. As you lean into your denial, resistance and sadness you discover that what you have been running away from is far scarier in your mind than in reality.


Take this journey often and you will become desensitised… free, liberated in fact.


Remember to Remember


The main reason we keep going around the same negative loops, undermined by the past, is because we forget. We forget to focus on the things that really matter and then are weakened by the patterns of familiarity. Where our attention goes, our energy flows. If we are to fulfil our reason for being here we must be mindful about where we put our focus. Those who remember to do this will reach their preferred destination.


Use this meditation regularly to remind you of the things that matter the most. If you like our work and are happy to support us in spreading the messages of loving-kindness, then please share your experience with others.


The Focused Mind


Begin by spending some time every day becoming clearer about your desired destination….  try focusing on where you want to go and  how you can best move in that direction…. the clearer you become about your goals the more intoxicated and uplifted you will feel….  Try, as often as you can, seeing clearly on the screen of your mind where you’re heading…. what it looks like, what it feels like…. with time and practice you will feel deeply connected to that brighter future….  obsessively focus on your vision, your dreams, your hopes in this way…  and you will find your clarity increases and the power for positive change rises in you…. it’s magical…. powerful…. beautiful….

The Magic Waterfall


This is an incredible journey of detoxification and rejuvenation… Enjoy!    Over the next few months we are releasing a series of guided meditations focusing on the most effective ways to let go and move on.   This is the first in the series.

We use a simple acronym to summarize this approach – F.A.L.L, which stands for Feel it, Acknowledge it and Lovingly Let go.  The more you use this method the more you will enjoy personal liberation and peace of mind.

Conscious Breathing


This short but beautiful journey will remind you of probably the thing we most take for granted… breathing.  If we would just find a few moments each day to breathe with awareness, gratitude and appreciation, we could overturn so many of our unwanted habits and negative patterns.  Practise conscious breathing on a daily basis and watch how your life miraculously changes.  The formula is simple: breathe in what you need, and breathe out that which is no longer valuable to you.  Enjoy…


The Reach Approach

Reach is a large private psychotherapy and personal development practice, based in the UK, with a national and international reputation for face-to-face work and also for producing self-help products and resources.


Reach is led by a senior management team of 4 very experienced psychotherapists who are skilled in a variety of disciplines. They manage all the activities and developments across the practice. There are a further 8 lead partners, with special responsibility for different aspects of our work. In addition, there is a UK network of therapists, which currently numbers 65. The team is made up of: counsellors, psychotherapists, hypnotherapists, nutritionists and naturopaths who specialize in a holistic and integrative approach.


As a result of our successful franchise scheme, we also have over a dozen practitioners overseas – this part of the practice is developing all the time.

Synergy is the answer

Our model has been developed on the back of research and clinical practice over the last 35 years.  In that time, we have discovered that ‘synergy is the panacea for all ills’.

Experience has taught us that until we realize we are unlikely to find all our answers in any one place, we will continue to go through the countless revolving doors which promise to meet all our needs, only to find that they repeatedly disappoint.


A strategy that meets the diverse needs of the human condition is what’s needed and this is what The Reach Approach offers… take a look and decide for yourself.

The Story of Health

The Story of Health summarizes clearly and beautifully our belief that until the needs of mind, body, spirit and environment are met, psychological, emotional and physical health and well-being will remain beyond our reach.

Our whole model is based on helping each individual to work out and create their own story of health.  This requires honesty in facing one’s own demons, practice of positive and uplifting activities and compassion and patience to enable positive changes to take place.

Offering sustainable solutions

We believe that whether you’re suffering with anxiety, anger, panic, worry, fear, depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties or a loss of direction and meaning in your life, we can help you find a sustainable solution.

Sustainable solutions are not about quick fixes, although there are times when a quick fix will do.  Sustainable solutions are in fact about recognizing what is at the root of one’s problem and dealing with causes rather than symptoms.  In that way, when the problem is treated, the individual doesn’t keep going around the same loop, or find their problem turns up by another name in another area of their life… sound familiar?

Our belief is it takes as long as it takes.  What matters is doing it properly.


Please note that given the volume of enquiries we get each day, it can take up to 48 hours before we get back to you, but we will always do our best to act promptly.  Thank you in anticipation of your patience.
