my healing journey

Hi, I’m Rom and I’ve been using energy for healing for over 15 years and been a qualified therapist for seven years. The therapies I offer have all come to help and support me at a time when I needed “something”. I thought I’d share part of my healing journey here

I first had Reiki and then became attuned (later becoming a Master-Teacher) after losing two grandparents within a week. Reiki really helped me grieve and also heal. It is a practise I use daily to balance myself

Whilst trying to become pregnant I had regular weekly reflexology which really helped me relax and I’m positive aided me to conceive! Then I became pregnant with my first child whilst studying and becoming a reflexologist!

Other therapies have aided me on my life purpose, eg Aura-Soma(R), which helped focus me and what I want to do with my life and gave me bottles to work with to really push me forward and support my journey. Crystals are my first aid at times of emotional, physical and spiritual need!

When I get a cold or sinus problems my first stop is ear candling, which resolves and clears issues very quickly!

I love using my therapies and to be a professional holistic therapist and able to help and support fellow humans on their journeys is a really amazing, fulfilling job!

So please contact me to discuss your needs and whatever they are from emotional to physical and everything inbetween, we can look at the “whole” person and come up with an individual holistic program just for you!

I look forward to hearing about your journey and joining you on it.

About Me – Rom Cariad Therapies – the parent?

I thought I’d explain a but of my background and focus!  I’m Rom, a Mum to two children age 7 & 4 and a holistic wellbeing practitioner.

I always wanted to have children, but my children took a while to come along, with some heartaches along the way. Then motherhood really wasn’t as easy or “rosy” as everyone seemed to make out. I had dreadful sibling rivalry and jealousy, great school anxieties with my eldest and other normal childhood behavioural issues. I was lucky that courses and options came along to support me at the right time and I want to share these with other parents.

Don’t we all want to do the best for our children, to be the parent we want to be and not the one who is shouting, upset, stressed etc…

I know the services I offer work because I have been using them for the last two years and friends have been case studies for me as well!

I have been a Relax Kids coach for over two year and love the skills and benefits that the classes bring to children. I trained to be a therapist over ten years ago and love how these therapies all come together to build a package for you the parent and your children to really bring out the best you all have to offer and create those special memories.

Last year I trained to be a SleepTalk(TM) consultant, a self-esteem program for children. This program takes two minutes a night whilst your children sleep and can resolve a huge array of childhood behavioural issues from tantrums, toilet issues, anxieties, speech to other emotional and physical issues. For my son he received the headteacher’s award a few weeks after staring the Sleeptalk(TM) program!

I also volunteer at the SureStart Children Centre and am involved in their stakeholder meetings too. With children at school I also get involved in the PTA too!

My children are so important to me and their happiness in this sometimes chaotic world is key to their wellbeing and mine & my husband too,

This is my story, tell me yours

Workshops and courses @ The Gorge by Rom Cariad Therapies

Thought I’d take a moment to tell you what my thoughts & plans are for the coming months at The Gorge Therapy & Training Centre. I’m trained in a wide range of therapies but all have a similar strong theme of “helping you be the person you want to be”, whether its supporting your children & family or creating space for calm for yourself or learning something new for a new business!

My thoughts on courses are:

Energy – I’ve recently been doing a lot of work and courses on Energy and have been planning a workshop or course on the subject covering, introduction to aura and energies, how to protect your energy, Aura cleansing, aura protection, crystals, using Aura Soma, cord cutting and more!

Crystal Gridding – Using Melody laying-on-of-stones amazing crystal gridding exploration. so we will be exploring crystals, grid layouts, lying down within the grids we will create to experience grids for release, abundance journeying & more!

Parent Workshops – based around the Relax Kids formula of movement, stretches, breathing, affirmations and visualisations.

Relax Kids Classes – classes for school aged children (5-10) to come along to a Relax Kids class – based around an age appropriate subject and themes. To aid concentration, self-esteem and confidence, sleep patterns and relaxation. Plus Little Star classes for preschool children

Family Relax Kids workshops – once a month have sessions for the whole family to come along to and have fun and follow the Relax Kids formula (movement, games, stretch, breathing, affirmation and visualisations at the end). Plus don’t forget that the tearoom below has fabulous cakes to get your energy back up afterwards!

SleepTalk™ parent workshops – learn how to use this amazing formula as your child sleeps to overcome childhood emotional and behavioural issues rom bedwetting to school anxieties to sibling rivalry to ADHD

Energy Healing – Additionally I plan to run training courses on Reiki (attunements) and Labrys Ascension.

Insomnia for Adults and children alike!

Ironically I’ve been awake thinking about this blog for the last few hours, so have had to get up to write it! But then that is part of insomnia, when something goes around in your mind and you are unable to switch it off to go to sleep. Insomnia can be caused by anxiety, grief, medical reasons and can result in debilitating tiredness. With a lack of sleep, for me, comes an inability to deal with the day-to-day issues in a calm and positive way. I need my sleep!
Solutions I can offer to help with this much needed area of sleep, all aid relaxation.
Reflexology is known for unblocking and rebalancing the energy pathways of the body. The feet and hands are for a map of the body and internal systems, through a reflexology treatment the body can reduce stress, aid relaxation, strengthen the immune system and facilitate homeostasis (balance) in the body).

By working on the endocrine system (the hormone system), it can be stimulated to bring the hormones into balance, stimulating the “sleep hormone” of melatonin, a high level of melatonin will result in a greater feeling of sleepiness . There are other key areas for relaxation including the digestive system, to ensure troublesome digestive ailments do not interfere with sleep and relaxation points.

As an all over body and system massage Reflexology can pick up areas of issue and can bring the body back into balance as well as be a very relaxing treatment and relaxation is of course the key to insomnia!

Other useful therapies are flower essence remedies which help bring balance to your state of mind and emotions, supporting the relief of anxieties and making you more able to cope with them. Crystals can also work on the body’s energy fields and help clear energy blockages. Amethyst under a pillow can also help with nightmares.
Children often find it very difficult to switch off and their brains keep working on thoughts and actions that have happened earlier in the day. The use of a Relax Kids CD can really help to give them something to focus their thoughts on, can stop the reruns and give them the space for the body to relax and go to sleep. CDs can be bought from me or direct from

It may also be the case that children are also suffering from anxiety, or fear which is preventing them from going to sleep, or to wake in the night. SleepTalk™ is a self-esteem program for children, which follows a set script which parents say to their children as they sleep. It can help with a multitude of childhood behavioural issues including sleeping at night. SleepTalk™ is all about developing the child’s emotional resilience, the mind’s firewall. By using SleepTalk™ over an 8 week period many issues can be reduced or resolved completely

Please talk to me about your, or your child’s insomnia, so we can work a plan of action that will mean you all have the night’s sleep you need, making a better morning!
