I specialise in helping people to:


  • Re-learn how to Relax (more deeply) and ‘let go’;
  • Release tension and ‘holding patterns’ from body and mind;
  • Clarify and address the root cause/s of their symptoms;
  • Resolve old injuries and symptoms (such as back pain, headaches or digestive issues);
  • Heal old emotional wounds;
  • Reconnect with their natural state of peace;
  • Connect with and live their full potential!

The methods I use are primarily gentle releasing touch and energy work. I can see and sense where tension, stuck emotions or energy reside in a person’s body and energy field, and help you to gently release them. We can also use discussion (sometimes a longer session is needed for this) to help you to understand the root cause/s of your symptoms. I sometimes suggest additional tools and ‘home work’ for you to help support the healing process.

Individualised Approach:

Sessions are fully custom-tailored to your individual needs, which we will determine together in the first session. I offer a range of tools and methods, including Cranio Sacral Therapy, Integrated Bodywork, Reiki, Intuitive Healing, and Ayurvedic Face Massage, however always adapt these as appropriate for your personal needs and preferences.

Don’t worry if you are unsure about which treatment to choose! We will spend some of our first session with a discussion of your aims – so that together we can decide what would be best suited to your personal goals. You are also welcome to contact me in advance (with no obligation) to discuss your particular needs and check if I am the best person to help.


A Holistic Approach:

The treatments I offer are all holistic, in that we look at the ‘whole person’ and aim to determine and address the root cause/s of an issue. For example, a headache could be caused by a variety of factors, including as a past whiplash injury, an unresolved emotional issue or an eye problem. Determining the probable cause/s helps me to tailor the treatment more specifically to your individual needs. In addition to the work we do together, I may also give you suggestions for simple techniques you can do on your own to help you maximise the benefits.


Summary of Treatment Options:

Cranio-Sacral Therapy:

An extremely gentle yet deeply powerful hands-on treatment, which focuses on connecting and working with a subtle, rhythmic motion expressed throughout the body, arising from the central nervous system. This motion is so important to health and life – is an expression of our very life-force. The therapist gently works with this intelligent life-force, facilitating the release of any restriction or inertia linked to past injuries, illness or emotional traumas, so that full motion, mobility and health can be regained. A deeply relaxing and gentle yet powerful treatment.

Intuitive Healing:

A unique form of treatment combining gentle touch with subtle energy healing. Over many years of work, I have developed an ability to ‘see’ and ‘feel’ energetic blockages in a person and where they are holding tension or unresolved emotions. In a treatment, I will start by ‘tuning in’ to your body and energy field, to ascertain where attention is most needed. Then I will use a combination of gentle touch and energy healing as determined by your individual needs to help to restore balance wherever it is needed.

Integrated Bodywork:

A combination of Shiatsu (Japanese acupressure massage) and Intuitive Healing (energy work). Gentle pressure, stretches and gentle manipulation will be applied to your body, through loose clothing – to help release tension, realign your musculo-skeletal system, re-balance your vital energy and induce deep relaxation. The focus of the treatment will depend on your particular needs. Treatments also include an energy diagnosis from your abdomen (energy centre) so that I can gain a better understanding of any areas that need re-balancing.


A gentle yet powerful form of energy healing in which the basic premises are that: a) everything in the universe is comprised of energy at the subtlest level and b) all symptoms are reflected as a corresponding imbalance in a person’s energy field and c) energy can easily be transformed with conscious intent for therapeutic benefit. In a Reiki treatment, the practitioner channels universal healing energy through their hands, directing this towards the main organs and energy centres (chakras) of the your body, and helping to restore balance to your energy field. The recipient may experience a number of benefits including deep relaxation, greater feelings of peace and harmony, more emotional balance, an increased understanding of themselves as an energetic being and how energy can be worked with to enhance wellness, and a deeper sense of well being.

Ayurvedic Face Massage:

A gentle and deeply relaxing treatment, which focuses on stimulating the marma (energy) points on the face to help stimulate the flow of energy, blood and lymph, release tension and ‘holding patterns’ which create lines, boost the complexion and induce deep relaxation. Also includes massage of the head and neck.
