Pure Living Collection

Pure Living Collection is an online store that sells a fabulous range of luxurious duvets, pillows, mattress protectors and associated bedding products. This website offers invaluable advice on the most appropriate bedding available for children.

Children just love the feel of the soft light-weight, hypoallergenic Spundown Duvets. Mums love them too, for this is the award winning duvet that just loves to be washed, time and time again. For summer the 3.0 tog Pure Cotton Duvet is a popular choice of children’s duvet as it will help your child maintain a regular temperature on warm summer nights.

The polyester hollow-fibre filling of the Anti Allergy Duvets and Pillows contain material in which house dust mites cannot live, thus playing a major role in helping to relieve allergies caused by them. Alternatively, the Anti Allergy Duvet, Pillow and Mattress Protectors all provide an effective barrier between your child and the dust mites and their allergens.

Pure Living Collection also offers some pillows with slightly less filling and therefore perfect for smaller shoulders, whilst waterproof mattress protectors offer their mattresses protection against those all too common accidents and spills.

MOVE is a national charity working with severely disabled children in a Programme designed to increase their mobility and therefore their independence.

MOVE combines therapy and education in a programme which helps children work towards goals that they really want to achieve, which can range from learning to hold their head up by themselves to learning the skills needed to play football with their friends using a pacer. MOVE is unique in that no child is too disabled to use it and works with the child’s parents, teachers and therapists to teach them skills which are then practised in everyday life, enabling parents to be involved in key decision making and instrumental in their child’s development.

Visit our website or call us on 020 7407 5344 to find out more information, speak to a specialist or a parent of a child already on the programme or to visit a school using MOVE.

children's therapists

Helping children with emotional & behaviour problems

Many children don’t want to, or cannot, talk about their problems. Play therapy is very effective for children aged 3 to 12. The child chooses from a range of activities in the play room. These include: drawing and painting, sand tray, clay, puppets, musical instruments, story-telling, role play. The Play Therapist focuses closely on the child, communicating using the media the child has chosen. Although of course, the child can talk about their problems, when they are ready, on average research shows only 8% of the session is spent in talking.

Between 73% and 84% receiving play therapy to Play Therapy UK’s standards show a positive change – the more severe the problems the higher the change. (Based on over 10,000 cases).

Because play therapy works through unconscious processes, it is important that practitioners are fully qualified and meet the highest standards of practice. Play Therapy is now regulated through the Professional Standards Authority’s Accredited Register programme. The PTUK Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists warrants the quality and effectiveness of its Registrants. Using unregistered therapists can be dangerous.

Play therapy improves a child’s ability to learn and reduces the chance of adult mental health problems.

Helping children with problems

Individual movement and listening programmes for adults and children.

Often the symptoms are all too obvious, but the causes less so. Rather than focusing on the symptoms we identify the underlying causes and work to reduce them through a daily exercise done at home.

Do you or your child have:

  • Reading problems
  • Dyslexia

  • Dyspraxia(DCD)
  • Attention Deficit disorder(ADD)
  • Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Anxiety and Panic Disorder
  • Developmental immaturity
  • Speech and language difficulties
  • Bed wetting
  • Low self esteem
  • Sensory processing difficulties

The individual Reflex integration and stimulation programmes we provide work at a very early point developmentally. They work by securing the foundations on which all other development is built. Because we work at such a fundamental level we can help lots of people who have very different problems and/or diagnoses. Drug free non invasive therapy to help you or your child achieve your full potential and make your life easier.

We have clinics in Leith Edinburgh, Morningside Edinburgh and Biggar, South Lanarkshire.
