Therapist Profile

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

A system of alternative therapy which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behaviour.


Naturopathic Nutrition stresses the use of whole and organic foods as medicine – an integral concept of healing in many indigenous societies.

Today, we see that a return to chemical-free foods, along with other dietary measures, is an effective answer to many health complaints and common conditions.

Physiological and biochemical processes are involved in nourishment and the energetic side of food.


There are various readings available.

Crystal Readings - within the sacred circle you will choose from a selection of crystals and place them in the circle. This will help us to understand and guide you, either on specific issues or life in general.

Astrology offers no easy answers to the fundamental questions of life, but it can be useful in a number of ways depending on the type of chart being considered, who is reading it and why. Most people are curious about what the "stars" have to say about them so a birth chart reading can be a welcome present. Likewise, a couple contemplating commitment to their relationship may want an astrological perspective on their union. With a shift of emphasis, similar techniques can be applied to gauge the compatibility of business partners. If someone is experiencing problems, these are often visible as areas of stress in the birth chart which are being activated by current planetary movements. Seeing their difficulties in abstract form on a chart often helps people to talk them out, and possibly realise how they fit in to an overall life - pattern. It can also be helpful to place events in a probable time frame.

Challenging experiences begin and peak, but they also come to an end.


Reflexology is a relaxing and healing therapy which works on the reflexes in the foot. Reflexologists believe that all the organs of the body have a corresponding point on the feet which when stimulated can bring about balance and healing in that organ. Reflexology is deeply relaxing and has been used successfully  to help with many health problems. To receive Reflexology you will usually lie on a massage couch.


Reiki means Rei – Universal and Ki – Life force. A more accurate translation would mean ‘sacred energy’. Practitioners consider this to be the Higher Spiritual or All-knowing Consciousness which understands the root cause and treatment for all problems and issues.

Reiki helps to promotes deep and beneficial relaxation which allows the body to self-heal, it replenishes and balances the body’s life-force energy. It clears blockages of energy, or depleted or negative energy. It helps to promote the vital free flow of positive energy.

It is quite normal to feel warmth, coolness, mild tingling sensations or sometimes nothing at all. We are all individuals and so will experience Reiki energy in our own unique way. Most people find they can deeply relax or even fall asleep.

Reiki can encourage positive personal choices, such as improving diet, taking more exercise, devoting time for rest or leisure activities, and may reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco. Engendering greater inner harmony and balance, regular Reiki treatments promote a calmer response to life’s challenges. Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages. Being complementary, Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding treatment options.

Shamanic Healing

Shamanic Healing is the oldest form of healing practised by shamans in indigenous cultures all over the world.

Shamanic Healing is supported by the natural world and by spirit guides. Sound (with drum, rattle, voice etc.) is usually an important part of a healing ceremony to connect with the spirit world and to enhance the healing.

A session may comprise:

Soul Retrieval: in which parts of the soul which have been lost due to traumatic events, are retrieved by the practitioner and restored to the client to bring about wholeness and healing.

Extraction: in which negative energies which are bringing disharmony to the client’s energy field are removed.

Cord cutting: in which negative ties to other people are cut, thus aiding both parties.

Sessions also include balancing and energising the energy body with the aid of voice, drum, rattle, hands-on-healing and above all the spirit helpers!

Space Clearing/Blessing and Psychopomp (Spirit Release) are available on request.


Shiatsu is an Oriental therapy which uses gentle hand pressure to rebalance the body's energy. Its theory and techniques developed alongside Acupuncture. Treatments involve the stimulation of the same channels and points as Acupuncture. Instead of using needles, different pressure, massage and stretch techniques are used to stimulate changes to restore the person to health.

Benefits from Shiatsu are many, including restoring vitality, relieving body and emotional stress, and deep relaxation. It is particularly good in helping relieve muscle, joint, back stiffness and pain. Many other symptoms can be helped. Whilst receiving Shiatsu you remain fully clothed and lie on a mat or sit on a chair.

Thai Yoga Massage / Yoga

Thai Yoga Massage combines acupressure, gentle stretching and applied yoga. I guide your body through a series of yoga postures, while palming and thumbing along the body's energy ('Sen') lines and pressure points. This is deeply relaxing dynamic body work, which can help release tight muscles and stretch out the whole body.
