Charlie Hindle

Resilience Trainer, Brainspotting Therapist, Breathwork facilitator


Charlie uses a range of different breathing techniques and exercises to facilitate relaxation and release of tension, stress and trauma in the body. Charlie is dedicated to providing trauma-informed care, and can work with Ricky at your request to provide a holistic program to manage traumatic stress. 

Stress, tension and trauma responses are physiological as well as psychological. For this reason, a balanced approach which addresses both the psychological and physical aspects is the most effective way to address these issues. 

Charlie uses breathwork and relaxation exercises to help the body release stress, tension and trauma from deep in your muscles. Exercises which stimulate the vagus nerve (the largest nerve in our bodies) can reduce stress, anxiety and inflammation by activating the parasympathetic nervous system.
