I’m a body therapist and use the disciplines of Shiatsu and Family Constellation to bypass the mind and listen to what your body knows. I’ve been practising Shiatsu bodywork since 1998, teaching Shiatsu at practitioner and post-graduate level since 2006, and more recently trained in Family Constellation / Systemic coaching work to bring an awareness of ancestral lines and inherited blocks to my practice.
I use being outside in nature, yoga, quiet time alone, study and personal insight to develop and deepen my life understanding and my professional work. From a young age I have had a deep interest in people’s stories and experience of what it means to be human, and how we can adapt and emerge from very difficult times.
About the work
Shiatsu bodywork is a healing and relaxing touch therapy where you can be profoundly met on an emotional, physical and spiritual level. I work within a broad range – from stress and body tension, emotional trauma and life issues to illness and post-operative support. My specialisation is women’s health, but I also work with men, bringing a deep tenderness to the difficulties of being human and to man/woman issues. It’s a one hour session, either one-
off or ongoing.
Family Constellation / Systemic Coaching is a way of exploring any question relating to yourself, current relationships, generational family issues, illness, or work life. I practice individual constellations where you name the issue that you want to explore – some examples are relationships with creativity, money, self-esteem, mothers, fathers, children, anger. Your body wisdom directs the process, with often surprising new information coming up and unconscious emotions becoming conscious. It can have a powerful and life changing effect, especially because it is a felt body experience. It’s a one-off, two hour session where I hold a safe space for you.

I have been practicing as a therapist since 1991. I trained first in Therapeutic Massage and started my practice in London and eventually moved to the West country.
I trained in Health Kinesiology and also Reiki 1 and 2 and have recently completed a course in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy at The Clifton practice in Bristol.
I love what I do and am very excited about working as a Hypnotherapist. To help someone change their life for the better, reach a goal that they felt was out of their reach or unlearn old unwanted habits by the power of positive thoughts and action.

I have been working as a Therapist, Homeopath and Healer for over 25 years. During that time I have studied many approaches to healing the body and mind. I have supported people through many life crises both physical and emotional using a variety of techniques. My passion is to help people to regain their sense of health and fulfilment in life.
My main concern is that people feel safe and supported during treatment whatever their problem. I work with all ages and all types of issues. I look at the whole person and help with general outlook including stress, diet, nutrition and lifestyle to support the healing process.
Some of the problems I have helped people with are depression,anxiety, hormonal imbalances including infertility and menopause, digestive problems, insomnia, joint pain, hay fever, asthma, eczema and allergies.
I also enjoy working with pregnant women and children who can respond well to homeopathy.
As well as dealing with individuals, I am also an experienced couples counsellor and help people to find techniques to listen to each other and communicate so that they can find a way through their problems together.
