Because I am quite busy with teaching and other aspects of UIUK I tend to offer irregular but pre-planned treatment sessions. So while I cannot often respond to urgent needs I am really happy to set up appointments in advance. 

While I mainly use CST, I also incorporate visceral manipulation, having done many of the VM courses and a good number with Jean Pierre Barral, the developer of that work, himself. Also together with other colleagues, we can offer multiple-hands treatments, which we absolutely love to do.

I have been a Holistic facilitator since 1996 and I continue to train and broaden my skills. I initially trained as an Aromatherapist and in a quest to extend my knowledge of the Holistic Mind/Body connection I then also trained in Reflexology, Reiki, Indian Head Massage, Upledger CranioSacral Therapy and Ear Candling.   

I have dedicated some of my time to raising money for and working with people with cancer at Cherry Lodge Cancer Care in Barnet and St Margaret’s Hospital in Epping.  In my experience in working with people with a variety of health problems I have gained great insights into how holistic treatments give a sense of well being and how they can be helpful in coping with the stresses of everyday life as well as dealing with traumatic life events.

I am married with two adult children,  love motorcycling, walking, mountain biking and being with my family.

In 1987 after repetitive back problems, and being something of a ‘couch potato’, I managed to train in to some sort of fitness and shape. Training overtook my life and I had to develop a realistic outlook, as a mother and wife with work commitments.

I trained with the YMCA to qualify as a fitness instructor, and later studied full time to become an International Sports Therapist. I have continued my studies in Sports/Remedial Therapy and Fitness, becoming a Member of the Society of Sports Therapists, The Association of Therapeutic Massage, and many others..

In 1999 I joined the team at Northcroft Leisure Centre in Newbury, Berkshire, where I teach Body Pump, hold my clinics and spend leisure time with my family.

During 2001/2002  I qualified as a teacher in Further education (Cert.Ed.) to lecture part-time at Newbury College. 

In summer 2004  I completed my studies in Bowen Therapy and Neurostructural Integration Technique (Bowen Neuro Therapy) which I practice with my existing work.

During 2007 I started Myofascial and CranioSacral training with the Upledger Institute on a continuing education program. I qualified in CranioSacral therapy in October 2012 and continue to study.

I am very fortunate in being able to keep my feet firmly on the ground by my family, long suffering friends, work colleagues, very loyal clients and the Leisure Centre, all without whom none of the above would have been possible. My thirst for finding ways to enable the body to recover from injury and pain continues………

 I came to "Upledger" Craniosacral Therapy (CST) after a riding accident having just lost my mother from a car accident and sister from cancer, both within 6 weeks of each other. Not only has CST helped put my body back together after numerous previous riding accidents, CST also helped me process my intense grief. With such insightful, life enhancing, transformative CST treatments, I realised that I would like to help facilitate the restoration of other people's own health and well-being.

I find that the profound CST’s gentle, energy-healing, hands-on, approach can deeply effect change in client's symptoms, often accessing and releasing deep-seated, core issues of unexplained physical and emotional pain, and illness. CST also helps to rebalance and enhance the mind, body & spirit connection.

I work from home, in a small cotswold village in Oxfordshire.

I found this work through experiencing its profound benefits when an injury forced a career change from educational management. Little suspecting that all my life experience, including an MBA, an interest in change leadership, and that of the psychology of adult learners would be invaluable in my Upledger practise and teaching.

My practice in based in central Brighton, where I treat clients of all ages and backgrounds. My understanding of the demands of working with major responsibilities and teams underpins my current enthusiasm for gaining an understanding of the ways the body works. I completed my core Upledger studies in the UK and supplemented them with classes with Dr John Upledger in the USA. Observing the value of CST for those with PTSD took me to work on various Intensive treatment programmes in Ireland and also in New York after 9/11.  I now offer multi-hands treatments at my practice.

I have led an Upledger Study Group in Brighton since 2003 and created ‘Developing Confidence’ workshops to offer support developmental opportunities for therapists. An active member of the Board of the CranioSacral Society for many years, I currently have responsibility for CPD and Study Groups.

I am also a regular visitor to Cyprus where I have a part-time practice.

I trained to be an Upledger Craniosacral therapist in 2014 after having treatment myself and realising the power of this light touch therapy. I have trained to Advanced 1 and also qualified in Craniosacral therapy for Paediatrics.

Craniosacral therapy has brought together all my years of nursing experience and allowed me to provide a holistic treatment for all ages.

I treat patients of all ages from pre-conception to old age for all sorts of conditions and symptoms, whether mental, emotional and or physical.

I started my journey into health and well-being nineteen years ago, starting out as a personal fitness trainer and then becoming a massage therapist in 2003. I then went on to train in remedial and sports massage, reiki, reflexology, specialist pregnancy massage and manual lymphatic drainage.

My first introduction to CranioSacral Therapy was witnessing first-hand the positive effect the treatment was having on my daughter who had sensory processing issues. I then personally experienced its profound benefits when a painful longstanding injury I was suffering from improved dramatically after only a couple of sessions. I was immediately hooked by this gentle yet powerful treatment.

I began my training in 2011, qualifying in 2018. I have undertaken further courses in paediatrics, pregnancy, conception and birth, chronic depletion, gut health, therapeutic imagery and dialogue and sensory integration. I feel as though the gentle Craniosacral Therapy approach has brought together and deepened my skills and experience and I am constantly amazed yet never surprised at the body’s ability to self-correct and rejuvenate. 

I treat people of all ages and with a variety of disorders, ranging from back problems, migraine,  illnesses and injuries to emotional issues such as anxiety and depression. I also treat babies and have a particular interest in children with behavioural, concentration and sensory integration issues.

I work from home, in my beautiful purpose-built cabin in a small village near Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire.

I work at home in the small village of Epwell, Oxfordshire. I run a very busy practice working from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

Despite having trained in various other therapies since 2003, I now work as an Upledger CranioSacral therapist, using Barrel's visceral manipulation techniques when appropriate. I find this combination an extremely effective treatment for most conditions.

I treat lots of children, from crying babies to those who have suffered accidents, illness or have concentration or other behavioural problems.

Adults usually come to see me with back problems, head injuries or post operative pain. I commonly treat migraine, cancer, ME, MS or any other neurological problems.

I find CranioSacral therapy particularly effective for helping unexplained pains and conditions.

I am the local CranioSacral therapy mentor running a study support group for other therapists training under Upledger, where we share new ideas, research and techniques.

Since 2001, through my initial training and subsequent work in Sports Massage and Sports Rehabilitation, I became aware that sometimes there was something else behind the physical issue a person had come to me with. This often meant the problem would resolve only to returned unexpectedly. Consequently I became interested in the Body-Mind relationship, which ultimately led me to train in CranioSacral therapy, because of its gentle nature and ability to work with your body as a complete being, including the emotional aspect of ourselves.

My training has also taken me to study Visceral Manipulation. Working and listening to the organs; their attachments, surrounding structures and their relationships with the rest of the body, to release any unwanted restrictions that can be impacting on their function and potentially causing pain elsewhere due to the bodies compensations.

I love both approaches for helping patients, as they both put you and your body in control of what is right and appropriate to resolved unwanted pain or discomfort. To me treatments should be a 3-way process between myself, you and your body, to find the route to health that right for you.

More details about the treatments I offer and how I work can be found on my website.

Hi, my name is Fiona and I have been a therapist for 20 years. I qualified as an Acupuncturist in 1999 and after 10 years decided the time was right to study CST. I had discovered it as a student and found it to be the only treatment that consistently improved my pain levels caused by an accident in a gymnastics class as a teenager.

As I progressed through the training, I came to realise the breadth and unlimited possibilities CST offers to people. To experience it is to believe it! And the profound change it can offer is a tremendous resource for so many people with a wide variety of life stories intertwining the physical and emotional.

I qualified in 2019 and treat a variety of complaints for babies, children and adults. If I'm not in clinic, I'll be walking on the South Downs, cycling along the coast or swimming in the sea!

Until 2003 I worked in Finance in the City. Typically I was on the phone for long periods of time and I developed a neck problem. A massage therapist, who was helping me with this, asked me if she could try some CranioSacral Therapy at the end of one of my treatments.

I agreed not knowing what it was or what to expect. That was it! Profound, quite astonishing, and certainly like nothing I had ever experienced. From that moment on I was hooked and in total wonderment of this gentle, powerful therapy. What was it? How does it work? I needed to know more. I left the City that year and decided to become a CranioSacral Therapist.

I have since undertaken many years of training both in the UK and in America, including Advanced Work and Paediatrics and even working with clients in the water with Dolphins. I have taken my Upledger Techniques Certification Exams and I am a Qualified member of the CranioSacral Society.

I shall always be indebted to that wonderful lady and her hands, and for her introducing me to this extraordinary work. I now practice in Brighton and Hove in East Sussex, and treatments in your own home can also be arranged.
