I am an Upledger CranioSacral Therapist and author with years of experience in private practice for adults, babies and children. Upledger Therapy is a light touch, powerful and intelligent form of bodywork that addresses the central nervous system together with the membranes and bones that surround it. Through a series of specific techniques and manipulation, tension and restriction in any part of this system can be released, improving it’s function and addressing a wide range of health issues.
Another aspect of this work is Somato-Emotional Release which is combined when appropriate with the CranioSacral Therapy to gently release any emotional component of the physical problem. This approach is particularly helpful with treating headaches and migraines, neck and back problems (including post-surgery), whiplash, jaw issues, digestive issues, chronic pain and dysfunction, effects from Long-Covid, multiple sclerosis, anxiety and depression and PTSD.
Families with babies and children come for support and therapy with many issues such as difficult births, digestive problems, difficulty sleeping and settling, cerebral palsy, Attention Deficit Disorder, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Autism, Sensory Processing Dysfunction, residual effects of birth from a mother with alcohol or drug addiction, bonding issues in the case of adoption and fostering, childhood migraines, recurrent ear infections, glue ear, eating problems and many others.
I teach and examine internationally for the Upledger Institute and the International Association of Healthcare Educators.
I have just published my book “It’s All in Your gut” after several years of research on the gut and it’s relationship with our emotional health. My book is for the lay person as well as anyone who works with people as a bodyworker or in any other capacity. It brings in the new science around the gut and its enteric nervous system or second brain and is told through my personal story and journey.
It is available to buy here.
I am now teaching courses on the Second Brain internationally.
I have been practising yoga now for over 10 years and I am a qualified Ashtanga Yoga teacher and also combine therapeutic yoga within my clinic where appropriate.
