My Practice will re-open from Friday 31st. July, by appointment only and with the relevant Covid-19 related restrictions and requirements in place. You will be notified of these on booking.

In the meantime, and into the future, I will continue to offer Skype/Zoom sessions for Hypnotherapy, EFT and "talk" sessions as well as distant healing with Reiki.

For the first time in over 15 years, I will be implementing a price increase on my fees from 1st. September.

I will also be focussing on working mainly with my Integrated Approach, however, stand-alone sessions will still be available.

I look forward to welcoming back my regular and new clients as we move forward.

Covid-19 Update – please read here  before your appointment.  In addition, and following the lock-down period, new and existing clients should download, complete and sign my Health Questionnaire here.  Alternatively, you can complete this on arrival for your session. 

I initially trained as a Reflexologist in 1995 and have subsequently trained and am fully
qualified in the following Approaches: Massage/Holistic Bodywork, Usui Reiki, Clinical Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Techniques.

My work also wholly
embraces and integrates elements of further trainings, workshops, cpd and learning experiences, both professionally and personally.

And, of course, and in many ways, most importantly, how I am and how I work has evolved from the thousands of hours of sharing space and time in one-to-one sessions as a committed, full-time Therapist for the past 25 years.

In my experience, learning to be mindful of Oneself – personality; modalities; ego; body; energy; Spirituality; identity; conditioning; history; role; sensuality; sexuality; needs; desires, etc. is a key factor in learning to understand why we develop the (often chronic and lifelong) constrictions which hold us back from blossoming as individuals and which, if ignored, often manifest in physical and emotional imbalances and dis-ease.

My job is not to “fix” you – the object of my work is to naturally facilitate a state of relaxed awareness where you can feel safe to recognise and address these constrictions.

The way I work is influenced and inspired by The Wheel of Consent® as developed by Dr. Betty Martin.  The Wheel of Consent® can be aptly described as “a life tool for relating with Honesty, Transparency and Integrity…”.  I have trained with The Sea School of Embodiment (Consensual Touch™ Introduction 2017 – Devon) and The School of Consent (Like a Pro Training 2019 – Manchester), but I am not a Certified Facilitator of The Wheel of Consent®.

Approaches

Essentially, I use Bodywork, Energy-work and Psychological Therapies in
combination as a synthesis of my particular skills and experience and in a wholly Person
Centred way – all are, after all, inherently interlinked.

During a session, an ‘exchange’ between two participants is automatically established. The success of any session is therefore greatly influenced by the communication exchanged during that session. Such communication is often silent or expressed in few words.

Whatever your objective for your session, there is always an acceptance and allowing for what is needed and what naturally occurs.  It can be reassuring to remember  that there is no right or wrong, but rather that every session will progress at a pace and level that acknowledges what is needed through your intent for that session.

Below is a list of the main Approaches I use in my work and a brief description of each as a stand-alone Therapy.  Please note my sessions will inevitably involve aspects of my training and experience as a Whole and therefore a session of any one of these Approaches, if chosen separately, will be delivered in my own individualistic way.  Alternatively, you can just book a “Session” with me and we will work together to establish the most appropriate way to work “in the moment”. 

Reflexology

Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body.

Massage

Ouida West, in her wonderful book, The Magic of Massage (1984), defines Massage succinctly and aptly as “any touch that is capable of evoking a change in the body”.
In my experience, I couldn’t agree more.

Usui Reiki

Usui Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique, working with “Universal Life Force Energy”, the energy that is flowing abundantly around and within all living things.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of Hypnosis. Hypnosis is a state of profound relaxation during which you become inwardly focussed, accessing your natural intelligence to overcome problems and limitations.

EFT

EFT is a remarkable system for addressing all kinds of emotional issues. It was developed from TFT (Thought Field Therapy), the first discovery in energy psychology.

Prices

Prices are time-based per session.  I value my time and experience equally, whatever the Approach(s) being used.  Alternatively, Block Booking deals will save you money and, most importantly, empower you to make a positive commitment to Yourself and Your Wellbeing.

Workshops, training and some specialised sessions are priced individually.
First sessions are 90 mins and follow-up sessions may vary in length and I will advise you on this.
I recommend at least 90 mins for a whole body Massage.

My preferred way of working is to look at what might be most appropriate for you at the time of your appointment and to adopt a wholly person/intent-centred approach – if you’re unsure of what you need or want to book, just book time and we’ll go from there.
