Homeostasis describes the ideal Balance in ourselves between how we think and feel, the quality of our nutrition and our physical condition. When one is out of Balance then the homeostasis triangle is distorted and our energy is reduced.
"Change is only a decision"
Tony Warren, Psychotherapy Practitioner - Burgess Hill
Registered Member MBACP (Snr Accred)
I am a highly qualified and experienced practitioner who has worked as a Business Consultant in the U.K. and overseas, whilst learning and developing new skills.
In 1995, coming to the end of a career in Unilever and facing retirement I felt at a loss, and experienced a panic attack. I found a counsellor and in my work with him, I learned to value myself and was so impressed with the change I experienced that I decided to become a counsellor myself.
I gave myself five years to qualify and set up a private practice.
To finance the counselling and NLP training, I joined a friend running a business management consultancy and ran personal development programmes for major companies in the UK, Europe and the USA. I also ran some eighty Time Management programmes for an American company.
