Healthy Eating

I went along to a session with Sair after I had been dieting and could not stop snacking on cakes and sweets. After a session with Sair where she helped me around my food issues and eating unhealthy snacks I felt different and more aware of eating healthy. I have since lost nearly 2 stone, through eating healthily and cutting out cakes and snacks. I don't even miss them! Thank you

Thank you

I was fortunate to be able to have some havening with Sair.
Sair made me feel so relaxed and calm and havening has really helped with some of the anxieties I was feeling at the time. I went into it not really feeling like it could help me, but after I felt so much calmer, like a weight had be lifted.
Thank you so much Sair
