If I could live at Stillpoint, I would!
I will always be grateful I took a chance on therapy because it meant Tria came into my life. She’s guided me through difficult experiences, realisations and self-discoveries with insight, compassion and expertise. I always leave her feeling better than when I arrived. Having someone I can truly talk to, trust and confide in has been life changing. J Williams (Jan 2020)
The Stillpoint Practice has changed my life and I would recommend it to everyone as it may change yours. It has guided me towards a healthy mind, body and soul. I am forever in debt to the person who decided to open the Stillpoint Practice. They have made a massive impact on the quality of my mental health as I am sure they have many others. The customer service I receive has always been friendly and professional from all the staff.
Easy to book appointments, text reminders provided. Lovely new premises and excellent communication emailed through. R Spencer (May 2019)
Very relaxing environment. Friendly staff. Felt relaxed and left with a clear mind. (June 2019)
‘Through Ayurvedic practices of diet, herbs and massage *. Pru has helped me find clarity, balance and space in my life. Pru is a gentle and compassionate person and I am grateful for her wisdom in my life.’ (Bee Roberts,March 2018)
I have had several massages from Deborah and they’ve made a huge impact on mu shoulder problem. Using Aromatherapy Oils helps too. Highly recommended! C.Brokenshire (July 2019)
I met Tria when I was not coping with the tragic early death, due to cancer, of my daughter-in-law. I had no idea what our meeting would mean or indeed how Tria could help (although I realised that talking to someone not emotionally involved can be helpful). Working with Tria helped me to recognise that the MANY losses in my life were connected to my ways of coping. We began the most wonderful journey that enabled me to understand myself better and make positive changes in my life. Tria is kind, patient, skilful, non-judgemental and a joy to be with. Working with her has literally ‘changed my life’. It has not always been easy as she has made me to face my demons and worked through them with me! It has been an absolute privilege to be counselled by her as I’m sure her other clients would agree. JP (9/12/2019)
At 46 I had just been diagnosed with lifelong chronic anxiety by a Psychiatrist who referred me to John Davies for Psychotherapy. I’d seen several counsellors before but John stood head and shoulders above them all in experience and understanding. The techniques he used were effective and I felt supported and far more aware of how anxiety was shaping my behaviour. After several sessions I felt able to manage the anxiety and feel fully supported in that I can see John anytime I need more help – which is very useful when you have a long standing Anxiety condition.

“Yoga therapy – wow! My sessions with Gail have been a real rollercoaster of a ride. The process has been so beneficial for me and has pointed me in the right direction. Yoga therapy has brought the space, time and calming that I really needed. My time with Gail has been invaluable, she offers a warm, welcoming space and is extremely talented at what she does. Thank you.” (Katie)
To say Gerry saved my life would be an understatement. He not only saved it he turned it round completely. I’d suffered depression for most of my life and it had ruined several relationships and left me suicidal. After my first session of hypnotherapy with Gerry I was a changed man. Happy, relaxed and confident. After four sessions I was dancing and singing all day and enjoying life to the full. I cannot recommend Gerry’s services highly enough.
I had a Lymphatic Drainage Massage/Deep Tissue massage with Kannika. She was amazing – I didn’t believe in healing hands but I do now. I feel so much better! Can’t wait for the next one. (M Saeed, 27th June 2019)
Rebecca was absolutely FANTASTIC. She talked me through everything and we decided a deep tissue massage would be best for my needs. It was amazing ! I would highly recommend Rebecca and I will be returning for future sessions. Thank you! (J.E 12th June 2019)
I have been receiving Shirodhara treatment from Pru since I was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. It has really helped me through my period of cancer treatment (surgery and radiotherapy), and now I have Shirodhara regularly to maintain a sense of well-being. It is the most relaxing treatment I have ever had, as you float away into a calm mental space as the warm oil trickles onto your forehead. Pru is a wonderful practitioner and is always recommending various foods, oils, and so on to help with cancer recovery/ management. I think Shirodhara would be wonderful for everyone, but for those who are recovering from/ living with cancer, I thoroughly recommend it as a way of coping with feelings of anxiety, and generally as a means of maintaining well-being.

I visit the Stillpoint Practice for Hypnotherapy where I see Gerry McAuley. By trusting in him and being able to tell him where my life was it was like as light coming on in a dark room. My goal now is to become the best version of me. I also try to help others by spreading the word about Hypnotherapy and inviting family, friends and even some strangers to get some help. This has helped an empty, lost life feel amazing. (A. Stuart June 2019)
Just wanted to let Mike know that after visiting with my troublesome calf injury on 8 September 2017 it’s been absolutely great! Managed to get on with life as normal the following week with the odd twinge and totally recovered the week after! The painful massage really sorted it out! Implementing advice daily too. Thanks, so glad I came!
Rebecca was very responsive to my needs. she adjusted the pressure as necessary and it was a very positive experience for me. (G Cliff March 2019)
“I came to see Kannika because I had a minor neck and back injury from a car collision and despite successful physiotherapy was still in some pain and discomfort. So far I have had two sessions with her and am looking forward to my third! After just the first session my symptoms all but completely disappeared and I had a freedom of movement that was more fluid than I have known before. I was impressed by her skill, versatility, attentiveness and strength! She gives a very thorough meticulous and dexterous massage. I can wholeheartedly recommend her.”
I came to Alana on recommendation after suffering with sore tight shoulders,neck and back brought on by a physical job. After just my first session I felt a huge amount of tension had been released which continued to improve with regular visits over the course of a few months. She has a thorough, friendly and caring approach, I immediately felt at ease and would highly recommend her. (Angie Smith Oct 2017)
Gerry is attentive and thorough in his approach. He goes above and beyond for his clients. I really saw a difference in myself from the first session and I continued to improve the more sessions I had. I was automatically comfortable in his presence and trusted him fully. I would highly recommend Gerry, he is professional, friendly and approachable.– Iman T
Rebecca – An excellent treatment. Felt very thorough and especially with the muscle release techniques. Pain was much better afterwards and stiffness in upper and lower body released – still better after 3 days. (C.B July 2019)
I had an utterly marvelous massage with Pru Webster! She is very knowledgeable and skillful and delivers her unique therapy in a powerful and caring way. S Grace (May 2019)
After just 2 hypnotherapy sessions I have stopped smoking! This, after many previous unsuccessful attempts over the 30 years I was a smoker. The sessions were relaxing and enjoyable and I can thoroughly recommend Gerry as a hypnotherapist.
Gerry helped us out when my 11 year old daughter moved to high school. He was very sensitive in his approach to helping her overcome the issues she faced during a difficult time. It only took 3 or 4 sessions to make a real difference to her attitude, and to improve her self confidence to a point where her problems started to go away. After a couple of months the issues faded away and she was back to her normal self. A year on and there are no signs of any of the difficulties she had returning. I know that the work Gerry did with her and the relaxed, unhurried manner in which he made her feel at ease made all the difference. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to any parent with children that could benefit from hypnotherapy.

Heavenly! Rebecca took the time to listen to what was bothering me with muscle tightness and then really worked those sore points. Great pressure and also very relaxing, Thank you. K Harbourne (May 2019)
I believe that if your mental health is strong and stable you can achieve and overcome anything life throws at you and the Stillpoint Practice offers so many great therapies to try and improve mental health of those who visit. (A. Stuart June 2019)
Her massages are gentle but firm and penetrate deeply. I have seen significant improvement in my physical well being as a result of working with her. Also, I have done a lot of SRT clearing work with Pru which has been hugely beneficial and freeing. In this respect I found her to be very compassionate, wise and grounding as she assisted me through a very unsettling period. She also has a lightness and ease about her which is refreshing as we have laughed at something’s I’ve been stuck on and I have really appreciated this aspect and quality in her while doing some very deep work. If you’ve never tried Ayurvedic massages or healing modalities but are open to something a bit different I totally recommend you book a session with Pru! S. Nicholas (Feb 2018, Sheffield)
Massage Kenneth McClure – I have just experienced an amazing back, shoulder and arm massage with Kenneth. I feel 10ft tall and positively glowing. Even putting my clothes back on felt easier! I’m already looking forward to my next session in 2 weeks time. More comments from Kenneth’s clients
A wonderful facial massage by Rebecca. It relieved tension in my face almost immediately. And the neck, shoulder and head massage was equally as good. Rebecca made me feel comfortable all the way through. (M Rains March 2019)
I thoroughly enjoyed my massage with Kannika Hutchinson. I have got to say it was the best massage I have had to treat my Fibromyalgia. She made me very relaxed and her patient care was excellent. I have booked a further massage with her and I will be recommending Kannika to my friends and family. More comments from Kannika’s clients
What a discovery…………….
The centre is a calm oasis in this noisy modern world, and the massage treatment I am having has improved my health immeasurably.
I took my 11 year old son to see Gerry regarding some emotional and confidence issues. My son thought he was great and enjoyed the session’s. We only had two as Gerry said he thought that was all my son needed, but I saw a difference in my son’s confidence and most importantly how he dealt with personal issues. Gerry also gave us some hypnotherapy recordings for my son to play when he needed it in the future which have been really helpful. It was extremely worthwhile going to see Gerry he made both myself and my son feel very comfortable and hopefully will be something my son can carry through his school life. If you have children with emotional or confidence issues then Gerry will definitely be able to help. – Lisa O’K
I have arthritic trouble with my knee, my feet and my neck. Massage has helped me regain flexibility…it makes me feel younger & more vital. I feel I am getting my life back again.
Rebecca checked I was OK throughout the massage. Rebecca knows what she is talking about and explained why my body was reacting the way it has been. Just what I needed! R Spencer ( May 2019)
“From start to finish, Gail is attentive, listening, challenging and compassionate – I felt ‘held’ through all the sessions. Her knowledge, approach, voice and intent all create a really safe environment in which, in my experience, you can shed old habits and grow into new ones. The experience was fantastic, I would really recommend Gail.” (Beth)
I have been seeing Isobel over many years and she has sorted out various problems I’ve had…her gentle methods of treatment have helped me greatly. Now all my family see her and I have recommended her to friends. I always feel she gives her whole time to me and treats my whole body & mind.
It all began with lower back pain…I have tried other practices but would never go anywhere else now I have been to Stillpoint. The people are all so friendly and welcoming, and even the building has a peace about it that you feel as soon as you walk in. I thoroughly recommend it!
Excellent, friendly treatment. Very informative and successful
I have Massage & Acupuncture at Stillpoint plus attend Pilates classes. All the therapists and staff are very caring and supportive and excellent at what they do.
…finding it difficult to express the level of contentment I feel whenever I come through the door. I am always confident that I will be afforded a high level of professionalism and care.
I have been enjoying the peacefulness & healing of the Stillpoint Practice since its opening! When I see Isobel….I often don’t want to leave the room, as it feels like a place where I can be myself, accepted without judgement, and assisted skillfully to make progress in my healing. Thank you.
I’ve been working with Gerry for a small while now to help with my sports performance in tournaments. It has helped me immensely how to deal with pressure and nerves and my mental game is as strong as it ever has been! These sessions are thoroughly enjoyable, and very relaxing not to mention extremely interesting. I cannot recommend Gerry enough to anyone! He is absolutely fantastic at what he does!– Sam W
