About me

Both therapies have a great deal to offer in terms of improving Physical, Mental & Emotional health naturally.
Many conditions respond positively & benefits often last longer because in treating holistically, the body's inherent capacity to heal is enhanced & health consequently improves.

I believe, & have found working with clients, that the body/mind connection has to be considered & addressed. For example, the Psoas muscle is recognised as having a function particularly relating to the flight/fight response & needs to be treated with appropriate care.

Training, qualifications & experience

Qualified in 5 Element Acupuncture in 1999 with the College of Traditional Acupuncture, Leamington Spa and the Bowen Technique in 2001 with European College of Bowen Studies, Somerset. I update my skills with post-graduate studies.

Experience outside of UK:
with charity Healing Hands Network who offer support to those victims still suffering as a result of the civil war. This was an opportunity, & at times a challenging one, to witness the healing potential of both Acupuncture & Bowen particularly in treating Post Traumatic Stress.

El Salvador assisting teaching the Bowen Technique to therapists & personnel from both sides of the civil war in a reunification initiative. Again, a profound & privileged experience.

I am a member of the following organisations:

  • The Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA)
  • British Acupuncture Council (BAcC)
  • Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)
