Therapist Profile

Traditional Acupuncture

Acupuncture and traditional Oriental medicine originated in China and other far Eastern cultures but is now widely used all over the world to restore, promote and maintain good health.

Acupuncture works to help maintain your body’s equilibrium. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of Chi, the Chinese term for your body’s vital energy.

Traditional 5 Element acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.

Treatment is aimed at the root of your condition as well as your main symptoms.

This approach helps with resolving your problem and enhancing your feeling of wellbeing.

You may notice other niggling problems resolve as your main health complaint improves.

Bowen Technique

A Bowen treatment addresses fascia tissue as well as the muscles and skeleton. It is fascia that is, in part, responsible for your posture – so in Bowen we pay it a lot of attention. For example, it affects the way we hold our spine. By influencing the way the muscles and fascia work together, we work to influence the way the structure works - encouraging your spine to adopt a better, less painful, position. We find that his approach often results in a much longer-lasting effect on body alignment than some manipulative techniques.

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Are you having a hard time? or just unhappy? Anyone, at any time, can suffer from Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Lack of Confidence, Relationship or Marriage problems and many other issues affecting them either now or from their past.

Throughout our lives we all experience difficulties and challenges that sometimes we can’t manage on our own. Counselling can be an extremely powerful tool to help us become the people we want to be and understand more about our relationships and the situations we find ourselves in.

When something starts to go wrong, your body and mind will tell you. It begins with a whisper, then becomes louder and louder until it gets your attention, it is always hard asking for help, and even more so when searching for a stranger to confide in and rely on.

There are many different reasons why people decide to make an appointment. We understand the anxiety that goes along with this process for you and will do everything we can to make it as comfortable as possible.

What is counselling and psychotherapy?

Both the above are 'talking' therapies, the key difference being that counselling is considered to be short term work, possibly up to 10 weeks. A range of concerns can be addressed for example; how to manage a problem at work that is impactful on the individual in someway.

Emotional Freedom Technique

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of alternative psychotherapy, that manipulates the body's energy field by tapping on acupuncture points while a specific memory is focused on.

Emotional Freedom Technique is meridian based and works by tapping on a series of points on the body that corresponds to acupuncture points in the meridian system, by tapping into the energy system whilst thinking of an emotional problem. E.F.T is very effective at lowering distressing levels of anxiety and pain, leaving you to enjoy life.

In essence, EFT is an emotional version of acupuncture where certain meridian points are tapped with fingertips. This addresses a new cause for emotional issues (unbalanced energy meridians). This frequently reduces the therapeutic process from months or years down to hours or minutes.

CRYSTAL HEALING: Crystals are a natural and safe way to retune your mind, body and spirit. Using the right crystal vibration can help to restore health, well-being and balance working on all levels, physical, emotional, spiritual and physiological.

During a therapy session crystals will be placed on or around you (you remain fully clothed) often the therapist will use a crystal pendulum to define which crystal(s) to use and where to place them, then using the pendulum to aid the energy flow.  

Crystal energy can help to cleanse, balance and harmonise your chakras, working on the 7 major chakras, or energy centres, with the corresponding crystal. The vibrational energy of the crystal will re-balance the energy of the chakra so that in turn you can again tune in to our own bodies incredible ability to heal itself.

CHAKRA BALANCING:  Chakra’s are energy centres, spinning vortexes of vibration which can become over / under-active or blocked. Caring for your Chakra’s is as important as taking care of your physical body. There are different options available to help clear and re-balance your Chakra centres.

Reiki is another option for balancing and restoring health to your Chakra’s. Reiki is a very gentle energy which is channelled by the practitioner (see Reiki).

GAEA KA HEALING: This unique healing combines the lovely energies of Mother Earth and the Divine Essence channelled through special crystal palmstones to give you a deep and relaxing healing. It works on all levels as a combined healing energy, getting to the cause of a problem and clearing negative blocks to help restore the natural flow of your energy.


Homeopathy is based on the principle that like can be cured with like, meaning that a substance that can cause symptoms in large doses can be used in small amounts to treat those symptoms. This principle is also applied in conventional medicine, the difference being that in homeopathy the consultation process is very different and the substances used in the remedy are given in much greater dilution, ensuring they are completely non-toxic.

Homeopathy alongside other complementary medicine, considers all aspects of a person when prescribing, rather than simply the symptoms you may have. For example many patients present symptoms that on further exploration may have started from a particular incident or life event - homeopathic treatment will include this vital information in the analysis. The consultation includes asking detailed questions about lifestyle, life events, personality, past medical and family medical history in order to gain a clear understanding of what is happening for you. This ensures that the most appropriate remedy is prescribed for you.


Hypnotherapy is a valuable therapy with which to release past trauma and decondition established habits.

Hypnotherapy helps with weight loss, giving up smoking and psychological problems.
