The Connective Collective
A L I V E
Welcome to A L I V E
Never has there been a more important time to feel alive. This means taking ownership over one’s own physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Here at Alive we offer carefully constructed courses and workshops in self-empowerment. We also provide applicable therapies.
Our intention is to teach as many people as possible how to thrive; as to thrive is to heal. We draw on the extensive and constantly evolving science behind mind-body medicine which forms the foundation of our teachings.
Community and mutual support is at the heart of what we do. We have a growing team of facilitators and practitioners and are always looking for new ways to collaborate and bring people together.
Meet the Founders
CLAIRE - THE SPACE HOLDER
Through meditation and Reiki, Claire has learned it is possible to alter the state of an environment. This is subtle work, but no less tangible for others to feel. She now uses this to hold an energetic space that will encourage an atmosphere of healing and transformation.
Claire is a therapist and professional artist (Minter-Kemp). She is an Energy Healer, Reiki Master, Mindfulness teacher, and Energy Psychologist. However, she believes that her best qualification
is her own healing experience.
From an early age she developed a deep interest in healing which was further fuelled by a chronic
illness in her twenties. As conventional medicine could not provide the answers, she set out on a
mission to cure herself. Her determination not to broadcast her illness, for fear of being marginalized, meant this was not an easy path. It was often lonely and full of trial and error. But, in its favour, this as meant a life dedicated to learning about a subject she loves. Ten years after its diagnosis Claire left her illness behind.
Once she understood her own healing, her task was to translate this into a simple language for others
to understand. So, for the next fifteen years, she studied the science behind healing - investigating as many modalities as she could and now uses this to help others find their path to thriving.
HEBE - THE VOICE
Hebe’s mission here is about giving voice to what needs to be expressed through the body, giving license to those emotional parts of us that are ready to self actualise.
Hebe is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Therapist. She also spends part of her time running the wellbeing department for a co-working space. She teaches yoga
and mindfulness, and has received qualifications from Insight Yoga Institution, Zenways, Mindfulness Association and Mindfulness Now. She has also completed counselling and psychotherapy training
with The Karuna Institute and The Sweet Track Centre.
Having originally trained and worked as an actor, she already had an interest in the human psyche.
It was after suffering a series of career blocks and subsequent burnout that she was prompted to investigate and prioritise her own health. Along the way she has turned her attention to therapy and coaching. This has given her a deep understanding of the mind-body energy systems and how they work together. With these learnings she’s created an effective package of practical tools that she now offers to others - empowering them to identify and transform programmes and behaviours that hold them back.
