I’ve been studying natural therapies since I was 12. Like many therapists, I got interested through my own health problems, and tried many therapies to help me recover from ME and a car accident. I then trained and qualified in the ones I found most effective for me.
The best definition of health I have heard is ‘Freedom’ – not being restricted by physical or emotional limits holding you back from your full potential.
I am passionate about helping everyone to be the best that they can be, so they can get the most out of life. I like to do this in a very friendly and relaxed way, having a chat over a cup of tea whilst we explore what will be the best way to help you.
Homeopathy is a safe, gentle and effective way of treating the whole person.
It uses remedies made from natural substances such as herbs, flowers and minerals, which are diluted and potentised, and prepared into tiny pleasant-tasting pills or drops.
It works by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanism, so it is working in harmony with you.
It can be used to treat many physical and emotional problems, such as allergies, hormonal problems, ME, anxiety, depression, and many more. It can even help with confidence and self esteem, and the physical and emotional effects of trauma.
Bowen is a very relaxing remedial therapy. It is so gentle that it is suitable for treating babies, and is safe during pregnancy, to help the body stabilise and cope with change.
It is so effective that it is often used to treat athletes, to help them improve their performance or to deal with sports injuries, such as frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, sciatica or whiplash.
Some patients have Bowen therapy for their structural problems, whilst others have it for relaxation and stress management.
EFT, is also known as Emotional Freedom Technique, or Tapping. It’s sometimes called ‘acupuncture without the needles’ – by tapping lightly on points on the face and body, you can help to release stuck emotional or physical energy.
In the UK, it has been popularised by Paul McKenna, who uses it to help people with cravings or phobias, but there are many other areas it can help with – for example. It’s used in some hospitals to treat post-traumatic stress and addictions, or to help with pain relief.
It can also help resolve emotional issues such as anxiety, fear, anger, guilt and grief; and can help improve self-esteem, confidence and motivation.
Tapping is quick, easy to learn, and extremely effective. Once learnt, it is a self-help tool you have for life.
