My interest in Craniosacral Therapy (CST) started after my son was treated following a traumatic birth. It made a real difference to both him and me. I consequently had regular CST sessions during my second pregnancy and after the birth of my daughter. I was so impressed and inspired, I decided that this was the path for me. I trained for 3 years at the Craniosacral Therapy Education Trust (CTET).
Having qualified I attended post-graduate training in Applied Craniosacral Therapy for Pregnant Mothers, Newborns and Toddlers with Ged Sumner and Jenny Keogh. I am passionate about helping and supporting mothers and babies throughout pregnancy, following birth and during those early formative years.
As a member of the Craniosacral Therapy Association (CSTA) I am committed to continued professional development and have had the opportunity to work with some of the best practitioners and visionaries within both the world of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and associated fields, this includes: Katherine Ukleje, Michael Kern, Franklin Sills, Steve Haines (all for CST) Peter Levine, Bessel Van Der Kolk (Trauma), Dr. Steven Porges (Polyvagal Theory), Emilie Conrad (Continuum), Robert Schleip (Fascia), Jim Oschman (Energy Medcine).
My Craniosacral life consists of both private practice and teaching.
My private practice is based at the Centre For Health in Horley, Surrey.
I teach at CTET. I am a Senior Tutor on the 2 Year Foundation Craniosacral Practitioner Training. I have assisted on Post Graduate courses both in the UK and in Sweden at the Broderna Tranberg Institute.
I am the Clinic Director of the CTET Student Clinic in Islington, where I head a team of 15 supervisors who support and guide the final year students through their clinical practice.
I am an accredited Supervisor with the CSTA. Supervision is a place to take work and practice issues to someone not in our day to day life for an outside perspective. I am passionate about supporting all complimentary health professionals in this way. I have been in supervision myself since graduating in 2004 and consider it an essential part of being a practitioner.
I am registered with the International Association of Biodynamic Trainings (IABT) and hold an Advanced Biodynamic Diploma (ABD). As a member of the CSTA I adhere to their Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
