I am passionate about Upledger Craniosacral therapy. I first discovered the benefits of Upledger Craniosacral Therapy whilst having treatment on myself for Meniere’s Disease, I was amazed by the dramatic effect it had upon me. After attending an introductory weekend in Upledger Craniosacral Therapy I left wanting to learn more and felt inspired to train as a Craniosacral Therapist

I am fully qualified Upledger Craniosacral Therapist and a member of the Upledger Craniosacral Society. I have taken further training in Paediatric Craniosacral Therapy I also help as an assistant for Upledger Craniosacral Therapy training courses. I have worked as a therapist on intensive integrated Craniosacral Therapy treatment programmes including treatment in water.

I treat a wide range of people my youngest so far being three days old and the eldest in their 90’s.I offer multi hands intensive programmes designed around your needs.

As well as my training in Craniosacral Therapy I am a fully qualified Holistic Massage Therapist, I have trained in Acupressure and Visceral Manipulation incorporating these into a treatment where appropriate.

I own my own natural health practice, Falmouth Natural Health Practice where we offer a variety of therapies and I also work one day a week at Hilsea Natural Health Practice in St Austell.

Because I am quite busy with teaching and other aspects of UIUK I tend to offer irregular but pre-planned treatment sessions. They are usually Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons with occasional mornings or evenings, organised a month or two in advance. So while I cannot often respond to urgent needs (though look at the website and try my colleague Jo Harris if you need that and are in this area) 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 with Jo and other colleagues we can offer multiple-hands treatments which we absolutely love to do.

I started my working life looking after children, and then, after having had my own, went down a new path and taught Pilates.  
 
After using CranioSacral Therapy to treat long term back issues (too much gymnastics too young), plus other niggles due to the stresses and strains of modern day life, I realised that I would like to be able to become a therapist myself.  In 2009 I started on that journey.  It was a long road, teaching me about myself as I learnt how to facilitate the healing in others.  I passed my exam in February  2015, a very proud moment for me.
 
I have subsequently undertaken training in using Imagery and Dialogue to promote healing, training to work with horses and expanded my field of knowledge in CST for Paediatrics, taking me full circle and back to my first love, children.  
 
I currently work from home where I am lucky enough to be able to teach Pilates and run my CST clinic side by side

I have been practicing complementary therapy since 1998, qualifying as a Sports Massage Therapist, adding Aromatherapy, Reiki and Seated Acupressure to my tool bag in my quest to find effective treatments.

CST found me in 2004, when I received treatment for long standing back pain. (I have fallen off a lot of horses….). For the first time since childhood I was completely pain free. I was hooked!!

 I have trained to the Advanced 1 level, including the paediatric modules. This profound treatment, which respects and complements all others, dots the “i’s” and crosses the “t’s” for me.

After many years of working in clinic situations, I now practice from home in Portreath. My client base ranges from newborns to the elderly, athletes to post surgery patients, treating anything from colic to whiplash and a myriad of conditions in between. 

I am fortunate to have an amazing network of colleagues in Cornwall and so, in a choice of venues across the county, we are able to offer “multi – hands” treatments. This option can be indicated where you feel that you have got “stuck” on your journey towards good health. The extra pairs of hands give additional support to the tissues and emotions of the patient on the couch.

Until I make better friends with technology, for more information or an appointment, you can reach me on my mobile.

I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1976 from St Mary’s Hospital Paddington. In 2000 I gained the Upledger Techniques certification. I started a private practice in 1990 and since then I have undergone extensive training in Visceral Manipulation and CranioSacral Therapy. In 2006 I started teaching Visceral Manipulation at the introductory level and I also teach the CST Intro course. 
I enjoy the challenge of locating and releasing tissue tensions deep within the body, these are very often not at the site of the patients’ symptoms but they are usually the root cause of those symptoms.

I have been in practice as a complementary practitioner for  27 years. Originally as an Osteopath, and since 1995 Upledger CranioSacral Therapy.  CST is my main therapy now, but I do integrate osteopathic techniques in my treatments if it is necessary.  A visit to the Clinic here in Redruth will involve a full case history and examination along with treatment at the first consultation. I firmly believe that CST makes permanent and sometimes profound change  to patients’ wellbeing and general health. The SER process is an integrative part of Upledger CST – this occurs spontaneously and may help you get deeper into your issues and health problems, and bring about permanent change on many levels. Please feel free to phone for an initial chat before you commit to treatment. Confidentiality is maintained to the highest level.

I began my Upledger CranioSacral training in 1997 and have been using this wonderful work ever since. My practice at the time was in Mallorca, Spain where I built up a busy clinic and voluntary children's clinic.  Since moving back to the UK in 2002 I have continued to develop my skills and practice and now work in Holsworthy in Devon as well as Launceston and Bude in Cornwall.

I regularly run evening workshops and introductory weekends to CranioSacral Therapy for anyone interested in learning more about this extraordinary therapy. I co-run an Upledger Study Group for practitioners in Devon and Cornwall.

I am actively involved in Clinical Research in CranioSacral Therapy and am currently working on developing a single case experimental design model to be used by CST practitioners.

I am originally from Scotland, but moved to Jersey some 23 years ago and soon fell in love with the Island and couldn't imagine living anywhere else.  I first encountered CranioSacral Therapy (CST) in 2009 and was totally astounded at the results.  I became fascinated with the Anatomy and Physiology of the human body, and the body's power to heal itself.

I have worked with babies through to adults, all with a variety of physical, mental and emotional discords within their bodies. I feel strongly about the importance of seeking out and treating the cause rather than the symptoms. 

I am extremely passionate about CranioSacral Therapy and feel that it is an honour and a privelege to be able to promote health and wellness in people using the knowledge and experience I have gained.
