Nervous system reset with Nahid de Belgeonne

by Clare Ward,


As April is Stress Awareness Month, we caught up with Nahid de Belgeonne, founder of The Human Method, and a leading practitioner in nervous system reset. With a private practice, retreats throughout the year and a book due out next April, she is well versed in helping people reduce stress and change their response to it.  

Nahid, please can you share a bit about your work? 

Yes, of course. “Soma” means the living body. I'm trained in Feldenkrais, which is a brain-to-body relearning method. I'm interested in the how-it-feels rather than the how-it-looks. I've taught somatic movement, breath, yoga, and restorative practices since 2005. 

Please tell us a bit more about The Human Method

The Human Method is a culmination of my studies, research and trialing on myself and hundreds of clients over the years to help them to regulate their nervous systems. Your nervous system is your master system, and when this is back in balance, you become emotionally and physically resilient.

We know you work with clients 1:1, but do you offer an online course?

My signature three-month course, The Soothe Programme, is a unique new self-learning method based on a deeper understanding of the nervous system and recognises that you have an integrated mind and body.

Why is it so important to regulate your nervous system?

Your nervous system state influences your feelings, emotions, thoughts, actions, and behaviours. The programme activates your body’s inherent wisdom for rest, repair, and healing by showing you how to regulate your brain-to-body communication so that you are less reactive to stress and learn to process the stress in your life.

The Soothe Programme is at the cutting edge of neuroscience research, combining the latest developments in brain-body communication with actionable movement and breath work practices. 

What can clients doing The Soothe Programme expect?

Clients who have gone through the programme have achieved powerful results, shifting them out of chronic states - stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, anger, pain management, addiction and trauma issues and insomnia - and into healthier lifestyles. They are learning tools that stay with them.

We know that our breath is one of the most powerful tools in re-regulating our bodies.  Nahid has been kind enough to share a breathwork practice with us.

Female Founded Businesses for IWD 2023

by Olivia Cartwright, , link

As a female founded and led business it is really important to us to champion our fellow female run businesses.

For International Women's Day here's our roundup of some of our favourite female founded brands that we are loving right now.

Tove - Tove is a beautiful brand for fashion lovers. Founded by Camille Perry and Holly Wright in 2019. Tove has gone from strength to strength and was snapped up by Net-a-Porter almost immediately. They deliver elevated feminine pieces, that transition seamlessly between occasions.

Content Beauty - Longtime friend of Radiance, Content Beauty is a one stop shop for all things beauty. Imelda Burke founded Content in 2008 and it is still the leading destination for natural, organic yet effective beauty.  

Pipkin and Co - We love Pipkin and Co's ethos, embracing the Danish art of living well - 'light a candle and belong to the moment.' Yes please! 

Sancho's - Sancho's is a black-owned sustainable fashion & gift department store, founded by Kalkidan and Vidmantas. Their curated collection of artisan brands keeps us coming back again and again for everything from gifts, clothing and accessories. They've also launched OWNI, an app to make reselling clothes even easier.

Forest - Family run Forest was founded by a mother and her 2 daughters. Forest carrys houseplants and fresh flowers alongside lifestyle and natural beauty products. They now own three retail sites in South East London and last year opened their cut flower and plant nursery near Deal in Kent.

Equi London- We are firm believers in supplementation, but all supplements aren't created equally. Equi was founded by friends Alice Mackintosh and Rosie Speight after nutritionist Alice helped Rosie solve her skin issues. They now have a full range of capsules and powders to support you in every aspect of your health. 

Nourish - Life is about balance, so we think the occassional treat is definitely fine! Nourish was founded in 2015 by Ineke, who saw through her work in nursing that there were a lack of nourishing gluten free snacks available. She started with her signature range of Coconut Macaroons and the range has grown since!

Mamamade - a beautifully packaged range of nutritionally balanced, organic foods for babies up to 5 year olds. This was founded by Sophie after she had her daughter and wanted realised busy mothers needed support with organic foods for weaning and beyond.
