Rachel O’ Malley - Wellness Coaching & Relaxation Therapy
I have battled with anxiety, depression and panic disorder from a very young age and felt completely at a loss as a result. I felt worthless, lonely and beyond help and so I know first hand how difficult it can be to reach out. I know how completely overwhelming it can feel to know that change needs to happen but not have a clue where to start with it and often not even want it to! That is where I step in. My aim is to help you navigate through the changes you wish to see in your life. I am here to support and guide you as you do. I empathise on a deep level but also know the importance of being challenged especially when it comes to self-care and self-worth.

I know how hard life can be and I see stress levels on the increase, often starting from a very young age. I offer relaxation treatments to help ease mind and body while also providing a safe space to discuss and implement change in the areas of your life that are causing you the biggest stress, fear, worry or anxiety. Working predominantly with young adults (18 – 25 years) I see a huge need for support and encouragement as my clients work on navigating through life, often for the first time on their own. Learning how to become independent, how to make decisions with their own best interests at heart and learning to stand on their own two feet all the while knowing how to reach out when they need it. Ultimately I work on communication skills, self-worth, confidence and empowerment for all my clients, regardless of age.
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to our well being which is why I offer a combined approach. I am a huge advocate for physical treatments such as massage that allow the body to de-stress and relax, I’ve worked for several years as a Complementary Health Therapist and have seen first hand the, often immediate benefits of hands-on treatments in treating stress and anxiety. For the last number of years, I have also seen how effective coaching can be in terms of implementing change and developing a deeper knowledge of ourselves. As a team (Coach & Client) we can begin working together to address the greatest stressors in their lives and ways to implement healthier, more balanced and fulfilling changes.
My aim as a therapist is to help you identify and alleviate the effects of stress on your body by talking through your concerns, worries and fears in a constructive and sometimes challenging way, with a reality-based focus on gaining new insight and perspective. While relaxing treatments such as massage help the body to slow down and reduce the overproduction of stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol which have detrimental effects on the body over a prolonged period of time.
Perhaps, largely in part due to my own personal journey, my focus with clients is on mental health and emotional wellbeing. As such, I offer Wellness Coaching sessions and massage treatments with a focus on relaxation. You are welcome to pick just one or we can discuss a plan going forward for you where we can combine the two. Each session and treatment I do will always be customised to the needs of the client.

Coaching helps to teach you tools and mechanisms to cope with the stressors and anxiety in your life. It recognises you as an expert of your own experiences and places you at the centre of the change you are seeking. Wellness Coaching, in particular, focuses on your overall well being; physically, mentally & emotionally and helps you to implement changes in the areas you feel will improve the quality of your life. My aim with Wellness Coaching is to help you combat the effects of stress, anxiety and worry on your life and learn, new and healthier ways to work through and overcome that which is holding you back in life.
Indian Head Massage
This massage focuses on back, shoulders, neck, upper arms, scalp and face.This treatment provides relief from muscle aches and pains and helps induce a deep state of relaxation and a feeling of well-being. Indian head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis to name just a few.
This treatment focuses on an overall relaxation of the whole body, by working on the areas where stress and tension are forming in your body. Massage also helps to reduce the levels of stress hormones in our bodies, leading to greater feelings of relaxation, improved sleep and the ability to think more clearly. Additionally, stress reduction in this manner goes a long way toward improving your overall physical and mental health and well-being.

Why I believe a combined approach is essential for wellness
In many cases, I believe that a combined approach is the most effective way to cope with stress and anxiety. I believe it is essential to give our bodies a break from the stressors and worries in our life through a physical relaxation therapy such as massage. When this is partnered with a talk therapy such as coaching it can have a significant and positive impact on your overall wellbeing in the long run.
In essence, the state of calm achieved in a relaxation treatment allows one to have a better chance of using coping skills that have been acquired in other therapies.
