How Meditation Can Change Your Life

Here at Alethea, we take our meditation classes seriously. Meditation can be extremely underrated. It can be seen as a little quiet time for yourself, a means to relax, and it is, but it’s much more than. Meditation can literally change every part of your life.

Meditation and Happiness

If you were asked what you wanted in life to make you happy, what would you reply? A new house, car, job, more money, holidays, a partner, friends, more positive relationships with significant others in our lives, etc… the list may be endless. Most of what we desire would bring us pleasure, but would it bring us prolonged and lasting happiness? What is happiness? How do we

Self-Love and Acceptance

Returning to self-love requires acceptance of every situation in your life. We don’t develop character through the good times, we develop character through overcoming the things that could have broke us, yet didn’t. The tough times shaped us into who we are today. I’m not suggesting you’d welcome another round in the emotional boxing ring with Conor McGregor as a means to build character,

Suicide Loss and Support

TEA AND EMPATHY At Alethea Holistic and Healing Services, we’ve been talking about what we can do to support people experiencing loss through suicide for a while now.

Standing as an Individual

Standing as an individual is not easy! Standing as an individual in this world is probably the hardest thing we’ll ever do. If life is constantly hard work, then it’s not working. No matter what circumstance life throws at you, the support of loving people around you makes most suffering lighter. Most pain we experience comes from the same source. Relationships. Whether with our

Choice Theory and Taking Charge of Your Life

I came to Choice Theory/Reality Therapy in 1994, trained as an IACP psychotherapist, and went on to become an instructor at the WGII. This theory changed the course of my life. It stands behind everything we do at Alethea Holistic & Healing Centre. I don’t feel that there’s one person who passes the threshold of #Alethea, including the people who work there, who haven’t

Self-Love and Healing

Self-love and healing is a journey of returning to your authentic self. A lot of the time, we don’t go on the voyage voluntarily. It kinda finds us. We’ve probably been traumatized into it by growing sick or depressed by the same old patterns of self-destruction representing themselves in our lives. We decide to make changes. And that takes courage. Not everyone will like

Empowered People Empower People

Empowered people empower people! Have you ever stopped to think about the fact that empowered people empower others? The greatest gift you can give another is to help them to help themselves. No one else can do it for us. When we realize deeply that the only person holding us back in our lives is ourself, that the only person that can make the
