About me

My aim has always been to help my clients find relief from their pain and discomfort, using gentle therapeutic techniques that have proven successful for a great many structural, emotional and stress related problems. I have been in full time professional practice as a complementary healthcare therapist since 1997. My interest in complementary medicine began many years ago, after a serious life threatening illness of my own; during my recovery I became passionately
 interested in all things ‘Holistic’. I then embarked upon a 4-year course of study, and graduated in July 1997. I have developed my skills gradually over the last 15 years offering a range of safe effective treatments suitable for everyone, from the very young to the very old.


I understand, that some people may be unsure of which treatments are suitable for their particular problem, that is why I take the time to listen carefully, giving everyone the opportunity to discuss and express themselves fully. Only then will I suggest an
 appropriate course of treatments, specifically tailored to the whole person, taking age, physical condition and level of general health into consideration. I am happy to liaise with a clients GP and explain the treatment protocol where necessary.

My most popular therapies are the Bowen Technique, and Hivamat Deep Oscillation. I offer my clients a selection of treatment options, where appropriate, which can be used alone, or alongside regular medical treatments from their doctors or consultants.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been formerly examined and accredited by the European College of Bowen Studies, the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia, the School of Natural Health Sciences (London), the Usui System of Natural Healing (Reiki) and the School of Thermo-Auricular Therapies (Ear Candling). I am a full member of both the Bowen Association UK and The Bowen 
Academy of Australia, which are all members of the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council.

I have full professional indemnity insurance covering my therapies, also current First Aid Certification. Every year I undertake at least 20 hours of formal CPD, also dedicating many hours to continued research, helping to expand my knowledge base for the benefit of my clients. Over the years I have gained a wealth of experience in the field of complementary healthcare, understanding the importance of treating every client as a whole, and not just a condition. My treatments have always been patient centered, tailored to the individual, and delivered with care, compassion and courtesy.
