    Glossary of Terms
    To help make sense of some of the terminology used in these fields we have included a glossary of terms. Click here.

    Our website is in a development stage with updated information being added on a regular basis. See the updates below.

    Who can we help - individuals
    We particularly support two groups of individuals. Firstly those who are suffering from a range of conditions that fall into the categories of ‘dissociative disorders’ and ‘trance states’. These include:

    • Amnesia
    • Depersonalisation
    • Derealisation
    • Identity confusion
    • Identity alteration

    (The above list is taken from the mind.org.uk website. For further details see:
    http://www.mind.org.uk/help/diagnoses_and_conditions/dissociative_disorders )

    It is our belief that these conditions stem from an imbalance between the spirit/soul and the mind and body. Into these categories also come those who feel that they are affected by 'negative energies' caused by spirit attachments and psychic invasions.

    Who can we help - practitioners, therapists, carers
    The second group we support are those psychiatrists, therapists, practitioners and carers, who are helping individuals with the conditions listed above, to work through their issues.

    As a further expansion it can be argued that many psychological conditions are caused by an imbalance or dissonance between the spirit/soul and the mind and body and by working to re-balance this relationship great benefit can be brought to our sense of wellbeing and homeostasis.
