Kim Harries (MBACP Accred) EMDR
Counsellor/Psychotherapist/ Founder of TWC.
07976 742915

Hello! My name is Kim Harries and I am founder of Tring Wellbeing Community because I am committed to bringing health and wellbeing to our community.

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with over 20 years experience. I have always been interested in human psychology, ever since I was a love-lorn teenager. I was fascinated by what attracts us to each other, why we behave as we do, what makes us feel stuck in life and why we seem to repeat old patterns. So I did a degree in psychology and decided to train as a counsellor. The Individual Psychology of Alfred Adler seemed to answer these questions for me and I began my training in 1990. I trained alongside my day job which was teaching life skills to adults with epilepsy and associated disabilities. I then had my lovely son and work part time specialising in coaching and supporting adults with mild and moderate mental health issues in or back into the workplace.

I provide skilled, short to medium term counselling and psychotherapy and personal development for individuals and couples and families. I also offer family education, coaching for life and counsellor supervision. I am a Registered Member with the BACP and abide by their Code of Ethics.

Angela Wagner  Pilates Instructor 07919 423033

Body Control Pilates is based on the work of Joseph Pilates (1880-1967), who created a series of exercises that built core strength without adding bulk and balanced that strength with flexibility. Pilates teaches the body good movement patterns, correcting any faulty ones and any muscle imbalance. Pilates will improve your posture, keep your joints healthy and in correct alignment, give you greater flexibility, lengthen your spine and tone your body.

I trained in London at the Body Control Pilates centre and trained with the top teachers of pilates – including Lynne Robinson, the ‘Pilates queen of the UK’, herself! I am fully trained to teach on the mat and the reformer. I have the latest Allegro 2 reformer which will challenge and support you with weights and enhance your exercises on the mat. The reformer work perfectly complements the classical work on the mat. I am a REPs Level 4 Specialist Exercise Instructor – Lower Back Pain, Back Care Professional and have my Osteoporosis qualification. I also work as a supervising teacher for Body Control Pilates for the Buckinghamshire area, helping to train new BCP teachers. I love Pilates!

Leanne Lawrence BSC (Hons) Dip HB (KG) Hypnobirthing Teacher. leanne-lawrence 07763 729987.

Follow Brighter Birthing:

I became a Hypnobirthing teacher following two amazing and, dare I say it, enjoyable births. Before my first pregnancy I was incredibly sceptical about Hypnobirthing, so I was blown away when simply listening to some CD’s helped the birthing process and me. For my second pregnancy I decided to book a complete course, to see what a difference it could make. As a result, we birthed comfortably and quickly at home, something I would never have considered beforehand.

It made me so sad that so many women feared childbirth and accepted that pain would be a part of their experience. Birth is incredible and can make you feel like a goddess, but you can’t just expect it to happen. It is still a huge process for the body to go through and you need to train for it, much like you would for a marathon – both mentally and physically. You have to believe in yourself and learn to work with your body.

So I completely retrained from advertising to become a Hypnobirthing Practitioner and began teaching locally in London, where we were based, with my business growing organically as my reputation grew. In 2016 we moved to Tring and have since relocated my business here, whilst still teaching privately in London.

Hypnobirthing is about taking control of your experience and understanding your options, whether that’s with an induction, c-section or drug-assisted. At Brighter Birthing we believe that with the right knowledge and understanding, you can achieve the best birth possible, for you.

Knowing that I have made a difference, at such a special and magical time in someone’s life, is the best feeling in the world. To be a part of that journey and support a couple throughout their pregnancy and birth is amazing.

Rachal Buller BSc (Hons) Lic.Ac. MBA.cC. Traditional Acupuncturist 07535 94 74 74

Clinic tel: 01494 771324.


I first tried acupuncture at a recommendation of a family friend almost twenty years ago. I began treatment a little sceptical, but it did in fact, profoundly improve my health, both physically and emotionally. Something I still never forget whenever I treat people today. In fact it had such an impact on me I decided to change my career and embark on a three and half year degree at the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, where I studied both TCM and Five Element styles of acupuncture.

I have helped patients with a broad range of conditions and symptoms including; pain management for bad backs and all joint related problems, sports injuries, digestive problems, neurological conditions, respiratory conditions, skin diseases and complaints, insomnia, emotional issues, fatigue, anxiety, depression and long term chronic conditions.

I work with all aspects of women’s health including hormonal issues, menstrual problems, fertility, IVF, menopausal issues and during pregnancy, completing further training in these areas.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council, the UK’s largest professional/self-regulatory body for the practice of traditional acupuncture and a fully qualified Facial Enhancement Acupuncturist which allows me to practice Facial Enhancement Acupuncture.
