As a therapist, I am passionate about holistic health. There are many factors that affect our health from physical trauma to illness, stress, and emotional disturbance. I take great joy in witnessing the healing process in my clients as we work together towards restored good health.
Pain and illness have been a part of my life too. As a young teenager, I was diagnosed with Crohns Disease, so I understand only too well the impact a major illness can have on all areas of life. Good health is the most important thing we possess, the foundation stone on which we build our lives, so working through a major illness was one of the biggest lessons in my life.
With the right help, we all have the ability to heal ourselves and experiencing the healing qualities of the Bowen Technique was the catalyst for me on my own path to recovery. Discovering the profound way in which Bowen works, not only on the physical body but also in releasing underlying emotional stress, was what motivated me to want to help others in similar predicaments.
The Bowen Technique works its magic by regulating the autonomic nervous system. After years of major surgery and a highly stressful career in TV and film production, I was unable to heal as my body was locked into the ‘fight or flight’ response. This left me in a state of chronic anxiety and the Bowen Technique was my salvation.
I have also trained with Breathworks, one of the leading teacher training colleges in the techniques of mindfulness. The importance of mindfulness in the process of healing and the relief of pain and illness is only beginning to be fully understood. When I introduce mindfulness into my Bowen sessions, it can be of great benefit, especially for those who are living with constant pain and suffering.
My philosophy is to engage with my clients on a journey of interaction that can lead to a sense of empowerment where they feel able to carry forward their own journey of healing. Bowen is a wonderful catalyst for this process, and my role is to help them achieve the best possible health outcomes.
My clients have experienced relief from many conditions including back and neck pain, sciatica, osteoarthritis, arthritis, gynaecological problems, frozen shoulder, panic attacks, asthma, TMD, migraines, RSI. Athletes visit the clinic for performance enhancement and injury prevention.
