Helena Dawson of Chessel Bay Therapies will be leading weekly online workshops on Tuesday afternoons 1.15 – 2.15pm via Zoom, and invites you to learn and practice self-relaxation techniques.

Helena is a local complementary therapist, who has experience in working with groups and individuals who are suffering from anxiety, stress and pain. Her aim is to support people feeling better, in their journey to wellbeing.
