QUALIFIED THERAPIST

QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED THERAPIST

For your peace of mind and safety, it is important that you are treated by a therapist who is qualified, experienced and trained by professionally recognised bodies who can guarantee quality and training standards, safe practice and accountability.

I qualified in acupuncture in 1990 with the International College of Oriental Medicine which is accredited by the British Acupuncture Council who represents the largest body of professional acupuncturists in the United Kingdom. I was a member of the British Acupuncture Council for many years, but I am now no longer a member because my integral approach is much wider than acupuncture and because I do not need to use needles.

I have also studied trigger point acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, Reading.

I qualified in craniosacral therapy in 1991 with the College of Craniosacral Therapy, London which is accredited by the Craniosacral Therapy Association. I was a member of the Craniosacral Association for many years, but I am no longer a member because my integral approach is much wider than just craniosacral therapy.

I have also done postgraduate training in craniosacral therapy with the Upledger Institute, Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust and the Karuna Institute.

I qualified in shiatsu in 1990 with the Shiatsu School of Natural Therapy, now called the European School of Shiatsu who is accredited by the Shiatsu Society. I was a member of the Shiatsu Society for many years, but I am no longer a member because my integral approach is much wider than just shiatsu.

In 1988, I completed a Swedish and therapeutic massage course approved by the London and County Society of Physiologists. Since then, I have studied deep tissue massage, connective tissue and myofascial release therapy, sports injuries massage, trigger point massage and lymphatic drainage.

In 1992, I completed a diploma training in hypnotherapy with British Hypnosis Research at
St. Ann's Hospital, London which included some aspects of psychotherapy and neurolinguistic programming NLP.
