"She really helps me on so many different levels."

I have 18 years experience in body work, qualifying in Reflexology in 2000, and in Craniosacral Therapy with distinction in 2005 with the Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust, London.

One of my first responsibilites was to volunteer at the Stress Project in 2000. At the Healthy Living Centre's training clinic in Islington, I clinically supervised craninosacral students for over three years. It was there I set up and ran a craniosacral fatique clinic also for three years.

Other significant responsibilities have included working for Hands Inc - a registered charity whose aims are to inspire health and well-being by making complementary health more accessible.

In 2012 I qualified as a supervisor for craniosacral therapists, and am an approved supervisor for the Craniosacral Therapy Association.

Inherent to deepening and clarifying my work for a mindful approach to health, I meditate regularly. Having overcome challenges with my own health (bad back, CFS, and repetitive strain injury), cranial work has been an integral part to the healing and managing these conditions.

I  now work from Navrino Road with people at all stages of life, from new borns to older people, and with a wide variety of health conditions. Working with you I make sure I can meet any particular cultural or health-related requirements you may have for your treatment.

In a peaceful setting on Navarino Road, East London the therapy room overlooks trees and gardens. It is close to North and Central London, with parking and good public transport links.
 

Healing Approach

I work to create a space where you will feel safe, supported, held and not judged.  I will be attuned and fully present to you throughout your treatment. I appreciate how craniosacral therapy can hold your body mind and emotions and reconnect you to deep peace in yourself which facilitates healing and rebancing and well-being.

I have a compassionate approach and I work with you to develop your own self acceptance and self compassion.

I do both short and longer term work, recognising that you go to whatever depth that suits you. 

Alongside the cranial I work with your body awareness in order that you can feel and rest in your body. This will help the whole of you to start to come out of danger mode and calm your system, so you begin to develop towards feeling alive in your body rather than the being stuck in your head. I always work to deepen my own understanding of the mind body emotion connection to incorporate into your treatment. I also have an understanding of body image and how it can affect you.

As well as stress and trauma there are many different factors that affect your health. For example oppression, our culture, politics, relationships, upbringing, nutrition,pollution and our genes. Understanding such factors and how they interrelate, is an element of my approach. 
To support you outside the practice room, I sometimes make recommendations.  My approach is to ultimately empower,enable and support you in your own self regulation and wellbeing. 

With chronic pain as well as treating you, I offer education around pain as actually understanding pain is a very good way of relieving it.I meet reguarly with a supervisor to support, reflect and develop my work. I reguarly meditiate to embody calmness and awareness..

My personal ethics and proffessionalism run through every relationship I have with the people I work with.
