Person Centred Counsellor

My name is Sylvia Friend and I would like to invite you to meet online in the comfort of your own home a friendly space to talk about what ever may be worrying you.  Often there are times when those closest to us may not be the help we need and can at times add to the problem.  

I see you as an individual and as such the interactive approach is tailored to your need. This will help you to access your own inner process.

We all experience difficult times in our lives. For some it can be a crisis, for others life can feel like an ongoing struggle or feel meaningless.

I would like to assist you in bringing about the changes  you would like to make in your life. And support and encourage you to manage life’s challenges and pains. By building inner strength and encouraging growth you can move towards your goals and your real potential.

Health and Well-being

For more than 20 years I have been involved in health and well being.  Looking experientially at the mind body connection.

My personal and main practice is a form of Qigong known as Hua Gong.  I am a practitioner for  more than  20 years.  The practice is an enabler, a way to connect to the universal energy known as Qi.  The way of teaching is through an energy or Qi transmission.  This may be through physical movements, meditation and verbal communication. Through the energy transmission your own Qi (pronounced chi) is activated to enable your own process. The benefits apart from improving ones health include unlocking artistic potentials and aiding spiritual growth.   This way of practising enables one to transform and move through problems.  Helping to see existential and inner challenges with more clarity and understanding.
