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!

Creating an environment of safety and trust within the therapeutic relationship is essential. My role is to help facilitate and bring out your body and mind’s natural self-healing ability.

The methods I use are primarily gentle releasing touch and energy work. I can ‘feel’ where tension, stuck emotions or energy reside in a person’s body and energy field, and help you to gently release them (when you feel ready). 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 will be 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 and Intuitive Healing, 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, primarily concerned with the movement of cerebro-spinal fluid as it circulates around the brain and spinal cord. Being the ‘central control system’ for the entire body, a healthy nervous system is important for a person’s overall well being. In a cranio-sacral treatment, the practitioner uses the gentle touch of their hands on your head, sacrum, spine and feet to ‘listen’ to the subtle rhythmic motion of cerebro-spinal fluid (and the surrounding bones and membranes), noting any areas of restriction or inertia which may be causing symptoms. He or she then gently encourages and supports your nervous system to relax and ‘let go’ of any tension or ‘holding patterns’, enabling you to return to a state of deep relaxation, peace, balance and ease.

Integrated Bodywork:

A combination of Shiatsu (Japanese acupressure massage) and intuitive healing (massage and energy work). Thumb/palm/elbow pressure, stretches and gentle manipulation are applied to the whole body to help release tension, realign your musculo-skeletal system, re-balance your vital energy and induce deep relaxation – depending 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.

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.
