The Open Door Clinic
32 High Street
15 New Road
I work with people who are living with the after effects of stressful, painful and traumatic experiences. My approach combines touch and body awareness to support a deeper physical presence so they can feel more comfortable in their own skin.
How we hold stress varies with each individual and context. During periods of high stress, we can feel physically and emotionally overwhelmed. The more we can accept our sensations, feelings and emotions, the more choice we have in how to interact with the world around us. Meeting ourselves in this way opens the door to resilience and healing so that we can experience life more fully.
Since 2003, I have practiced in private clinics across Sussex including 12 years in a residential hospital within the NHS. I have trained extensively in Craniosacral Therapy and several approaches focussing on trauma, pain and stress.
As a senior tutor for Body Intelligence Training, I teach Craniosacral Therapy to students internationally. I also offer clinical supervision to Craniosacral Therapists and many other movement and body oriented practitioners.
