The HEARTS process

Now an accredited short course with The Federation of Holistic Therapists

Next workshop:

HEARTS stands for:

  • Hands-on
  • Empathy
  • Aromas/Aromatherapy
  • Relaxation
  • Textures
  • Sound

    The HEARTS Process was developed at the Neil Cliffe Centre (part of St. Ann’s Hospice) near Manchester by complementary therapist Ann Carter. Ann has run workshops for therapists and carers who work in supportive and palliative care throughout the UK and Ireland.

    It was developed in response to the needs of some clients who were unable or unwilling to receive traditional massage and other therapies to bring about relaxation and a sense of calm. Drawing on different therapeutic approaches, the HEARTS process is a gentle, hands-on, ‘in the moment’ experience which brings about profound relaxation and helps to calm the mind. It can be given wherever the person is with little preparation and uses one, some, or all of its elements.

    It can easily be taught to staff and family carers to use when needed to sooth, relax and bring comfort. The workshops are suitable for anyone in a caring role who would like to learn some very simple techniques to be used in the moment which will help to bring a sense of calm.

    Open to therapists and non therapists to attend.

    The workshop offers a versatile package for working with most people, whether patients, family carers and staff. It covers a range of gentle touch techniques and simple relaxations you can use anywhere and in a variety of situations.

    Angela is a HEARTS process teacher and can deliver the workshops in your own workplace. Contact me for further information, course dates and prices.

    Feedback from some workshops

    Just wanted to say thank you for 2 lovely days training with yourself. It was one of the best training sessions that I have attended and I have had positive comments from the other girls.

    Keep up the good work.

    Heather, Nursing Home

    Angela, you have made studying at the weekend more like a mindfulness retreat! The HEARTS Process, will benefit many of my mums- to-be and hospital staff

    Jane, Midwife.

    I have been more medicalised in my practice and really feel there is a place for the HEARTS Process. It will help to offer a better experience for the parents.
