About PEMBA Wellbeing
PEMBA is an African name meaning "The force of present existence"
PEMBA is also a beautiful tropical island in the Indian Ocean.
PEMBA Wellbeing takes a natural and holistic approach to supporting your peace of mind and body. This starts with bringing your awareness to the ways that your breathing affects your wellbeing, then helping you to establish efficient and effective functional breathing patterns with simple but well-proven methods, primarily the Buteyko Breathing Method.
Stress Management tools are used to calm the mind and the body.
We also use simple, well-proven practical exercises that help to achieve better balance in your autonomic nervous system, to get out of being stuck in an undesired emotional state, to enjoy life and thrive. These are somatic (body-centred) exercises that anyone can do and carry out themselves with no hands-on input from the therapist.
No disclosure is required from the client other than identifying specific health conditions and there is no talking therapy or counselling involved. The approach is independent of any medication taken by the client and does not constitute medical advice.
Programmes can be delivered in companies and organisations through group learning backed up by one to one tailored support for individuals.
Private clients can be supported face to face at our treatment room in rural south Warwickshire or remotely via Zoom or Teams.
All clients will have access to additional support as needed via email, phone or video call as needed.
Let PEMBA Wellbeing be your Partner in Emotional, Mind and Body Alignment.
Jeremy previously worked in operational management roles in industry, including 20 years in pharmaceuticals and medical diagnostics. He has first-hand experience of the effects that stress and anxiety can have in the workplace and within families, and over several years has practised and studied extensively in the field of stress management and holistic therapy, gaining a range of Diploma and Certificate level qualifications and delivering stress management and wellbeing training and mentoring to employees, family members and friends.
Reflecting on the dramatic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on people's wellbeing, he decided to follow his passion to provide support to those in need and he established PEMBA Wellbeing in 2021. Through using breathing techniques to help clients with relaxation and meditation, he came across the Buteyko method and studied with Buteyko Clinic International, under the auspices of leading expert Patrick McKeown, to achieve the Certificate in the Buteyko Clinic Method. He is passionate about the benefits of the Buteyko method for clients to improve their quality of life in relation to breathing disorders, sleep problems and anxiety.
As well as realising the importance of breathing to help regulate the autonomic nervous system, Jeremy has widely researched other principles and methods used by highly respected doctors, scientists and therapists and the science behind these methods. In addition, Jeremy is an enthusiastic advocate for natural health and is Diploma qualified in Naturopathy, Diet & Nutrition and Anatomy & Physiology.
