I have been working professionally in Body Harmony for twenty years because it is the most effective tool for growth and transformation I have found. I have been a massage therapist for 12 years, and I have Reiki 2 in the Usui system of healing. I have worked from home, and from clinics in Bristol, Monmouth, Hereford and Ross-on-Wye; and taught Body Harmony nationally and internationally.
I have been meditating for 25 years, and began practising mindfulness 6 years ago, and am working with self-compassion.
I qualified as a physiotherapist at Cardiff University in 2011.
I have a year’s experience as outpatients’ physiotherapist in Hereford and Ross-on-Wye for Wye Valley NHS trust.
I worked for 2 years at National Star College, Cheltenham as physiotherapist and aquatic therapist with young people with complex neurological disabilities.
I come from a theatrical family, and travelled extensively for twenty years in my first career as a clown and (non-animal) circus/theatre performer and teacher.
I brought my daughter up alone, and put her through Steiner School in Bristol and Hereford.
I am now in my 12th year of managing my Mother’s elderly care and stroke rehabilitation in her own home.
I am now returning to private practice to consolidate and assimilate.
Alongside my bodywork practice I am available for neurological and paediatric physiotherapy, and aquatic therapy.
I find honesty, respect, compassion and a sense of humour to be my most valuable tools, and I consider ongoing professional development vital to maintaining authentic status as a bodyworker. My bodywork style is intuitive, holistic, evidence-based and client-led, which means you, the client, are always in charge.
My professional code of ethics means that anything that takes place within a treatment session is totally confidential.
I am a member of the International Body Harmony Guild (IBHG), Chartered Society for Physiotherapy (CSP), and the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I am Insured by Independent Professional Therapists International, and CSP.
