My interest in complementary therapies began when I was just 19, when I spent a week in a naturopathic clinic, receiving daily back massages. The difference something so simple made to my sense of well being, physical comfort and mood was remarkable, and I knew from then on that I wanted to learn about complementary therapies.
I was already trained as a general nurse, my involvement in complementary therapies began when I first moved to Norfolk 29 years ago. I followed a natural progression through bodywork and energy based practices including aromatherapy, reflexology, reiki moving onto practices based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) like shiatsu and qigong.
Alongside these I studied hypnotherapy and M technique. Having worked with a variety of therapies this enables me to offer an individualised approach drawing on my various skills to address my client’s needs in a calm relaxing environment.
My special interest is in women’s health, fertility and pregnancy.
I combine fertile body treatment, hypnotherapy and reflexology to support women experiencing issues with fertility and to support women through pregnancy and use hypnotherapy to help women manage anxiety in pregnancy and to have a positive birth experience.
I also work with all aspects of family health, including children, teenagers, fertility, pregnancy and menopause and elderly and palliative care.
Beyond these core areas of therapeutic work I assist at the Norwich Shiatsu college, maintaining my professional development and run a thriving Taichi – Qigong class in Norwich – a great way for people to maintain and enhance the improvements they are experiencing.
I also teach carers and professionals and practice M-Technique, a safe, deeply relaxing, palliative treatment for anyone in any state of health. This treatment helps relieve stress and anxiety offering much needed treatments for fragile patients, and relatives in need of a small oasis of relaxation, and emotional support.
