Concord House Clinic
26a Stour Street
Shiatsu is a healing art which originated in Japan and involves diagnostic healing touch and bodywork techniques. With deep listening, not only to the body's expression but also to what is being experienced by the client in relation to their well-being, shiatsu sessions provide a truly holistic and supportive experience.
Craniosacral Therapy has developed from the osteopathic tradition as an effective way to lightly touch yet connect deeply and powerfully with the healing intention of the body, easing and resolving deep restrictions or embedded trauma.
Both these therapies are received through clothing.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have trained extensively for more than 26 years to deepen my work so I can offer the most effective and current approach to the therapies I offer. This has included qualifying as a counsellor. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
For many years prior to moving to Kent, I taught Healing-Shiatsu alongside a busy London practice and worked extensively in a multidisciplinary team with children and babies with profound and multiple disabilities. I also worked with people with immunity related conditions including cancer and HIV.
I studied craniosacral therapy in part to extend my skills with babies and young children. I love both these therapies and am endlessly fascinated by the intelligence and innate healing capacity within the body that is revealed.
I am currently continuing an exploration and study of Somatic Psychotherapy, Authentic Movement and Body Mind Centering with an inspirational teacher, Joan Davis.
I bring all my skills to bodywork sessions which are tailored individually. I incorporate counselling, somatic awareness, focusing skills and bodywork.
