Chalet Holistics Supports Grenfell Survivors
Here at Chalet Holistics, we have recently been devoting our time to a tragedy that is just too difficult to even write about; but today we have tried to write about it – alongside Base Formula – to raise awareness of a new team of therapists that we are involved with, who are supporting survivors of Grenfell Tower with various complementary therapies. You can read Base Formula’s Blog HERE.
Complementary Support Teams UK (CST-UK) has been set up by a lady called Jane Lawson, of ‘Natural Approach School and Therapies’ in Gloucestershire. Firstly set up to respond to Grenfell, it is building momentum and hopes to be able to have enough volunteers to be able to continue to respond to other UK disasters, nationwide. It’s an amazing charity being set up to really support those in need who are suffering acute trauma and grief, any various other symptoms – in the case of Grenfell, respiratory issues – with different complementary therapies. Whilst counselling is often on offer, Jane says, people need grounding back into their bodies before they are able to talk, and complementary therapies help with this. CST-UK are offering a variety of free therapies such as Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Talking Therapy, Counselling, Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and many, many others.
Nicole is on board as both a volunteer therapist and also holding various press responsibilities, working with various publications, from FHT and their International Therapist Magazine, Holistic Therapist Magazine, to different brands like Base Formula and Weleda, to try and get as mch visibility of the charity as possible – both for therapists who want to volunteer, and survivors who need support. She is also developing them a website and working to support a collaborating charity, Homeopaths’ Support. Here she is with some of the team at their newly-donated Warehouse Space in Westway, near Grenfell Tower:

It is an honour and a priviledge to work with such beautiful people who are creating an amazing safe space for survivors dealing with such traumatic and difficult situations. Survivors are so grateful of groups like this and they help lift them.
Likewise, heartfelt thanks go to Base Formula who have worked with Nicole to provide both Aromatherapy supplies such as essential oils and respiratory inhalor sticks, as well as press support. Thank you so much.
