About me

I give craniosacral therapy treatments from my own clinic in Chelsea / Belgravia (a 5 min walk from Sloane Sq tube station).

Craniosacral therapy is a very gentle, light touch technique used to release pain, stress, tension and restrictions in the body.

Treatments are normally 60 – 90 minutes long, and consist of the practitioner placing his or her hands very gently on the body (clothed) and identifying the areas of restriction, compression or tension. The therapist then follows the subtle internal tensions manifested by the craniosacral system until points of resistance are encountered and released, allowing the tissues to return to their normal healthy function.

I draw on my experiences from years as an intensive care nurse to inform my understand of the body, but also to support clients emotionally in their journey back to health

Training, qualifications & experience

I undertook my craniosacral therapy diploma training with one of the UKs most experienced teachers and now run my own clinic in central London.

I now am nearly finished a 5 year further education programme with Hugh Milne - one of the greats in our profession, and have been working along side him in assisting in teaching some of his classes.

Previously, I worked as a nurse (my final area of specialism being ITU) since 2004 and hold a 2:1 BNus from King's College.

I am a fully qualified therapist, member of the Craniosacral Association, insured and CRB checked.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
