What’s in a name?

When I launched Blended Therapy in May 2017, the name reflected my desire to combine the benefits of yoga and hypnotherapy into a unique therapeutic approach that would help my clients create lasting change physically and emotionally.

Fast forward to Spring 2021. After a year in which I, like millions of others, spent more time alone – and more time connecting with people virtually – than ever before, I found I had gained a deeper understanding of exactly what I’m here to do.

I’m here to help each and every person who works with me to take the one step forward that will help them, today.

And so, Blended Therapy has become One Step Forward.

Sometimes I will literally be stepping forward alongside you – on the yoga mat or walking and talking in the countryside. Sometimes your step may be metaphorical – a transformative shift in perception, experienced from the safety of the hypnotherapy chair. 

Sometimes ‘one small step’ is all that’s needed – or indeed possible – today… at other times you find you’re ready for a ‘giant leap’!

Whatever the one step forward you take with me today, it will be something that helps you to make space: physically, mentally and/or emotionally. Because where there’s space, there’s healing.

      • weekly online yoga classes
      • in-person yoga workshops (as soon as we can!)
      • releasing unwanted patterns and creating lasting change through hypnotherapy
      • hypnosis as the key to successful surgery
      • how to make serene – not stressed – your default mode
      • and much more!

Your one step forward will be different from someone else’s. And your one step forward today may well be different from yesterday’s or tomorrow’s. Whatever the step you’re ready to take – whether or not you know exactly what it is – I’m here to help.

You may continue to see the Blended Therapy name and logo around for a little longer in some places. Rest assured that whatever the branding you’ll find the same caring, compassionate and down-to-earth approach when you choose to work with me!

Let’s stay in touch…

Are you ready to make space for change?

Do you want to improve your general health and wellbeing? Has the time finally come to let go of that unhelpful or destructive habit that’s been holding you back? Have you been searching for ways to cope with physical or emotional pain? Or are you simply trying to remember who you are and what you’re here to do? Whatever the change you want to make in your life, I’m here to help you take one step forward, today.

I’m Helen Davis, founder of One Step Forward (formerly Blended Therapy). After 20 years as a successful business analyst, a diagnosis of ME/CFS in 2012 led to a major reassessment of my priorities and the realisation that the time had come for a complete change of direction. (Read more about my own story here.) From my base in Petersfield, close to the Hampshire/West Sussex border, in the heart of the South Downs, I help people do what they need to do to make space – physically, mentally and emotionally.

Because where there’s space, there’s healing.

So if you’d like someone to walk beside you as you take your one step forward today – someone who’s had experience of this bit of the path before, who can hold the torch as you find your feet and maybe point out the odd short cut you didn’t know about – then I’d love to hear from you.

If it feels like the right time for us to work together, we’ll work out – together – what that looks like for you. It could mean joining one of my regular yoga classes or workshops, working with me on a 1:1 basis, or perhaps signing up for my Signature Programme, From Stressed to Serene.
