A friend recommended Craniosacral Therapy to me in 2014 and it was to be life-changing.  

 

For 18 years, I trained and worked as a professional contemporary dancer and suffered from continual back pains throughout my career. Having exhausted all others forms of treatment, I gave Craniosacral Therapy a go and was promptly hooked.

As the therapist made contact, my physical and emotional bodies responded, encouraging a sense of release and relief, as if pressure was being lifted. It was like nothing I had ever experienced before.

I immediately knew that this was a special type of treatment and healing.  After several sessions, the anxieties and tensions that were causing my physical pain were dissipating. I was re-connecting to myself, bringing confidence and emotional stability.

 

Having always been fascinated with the body, its abilities and responses to treatments, I decided to retrain as a therapist.

I gained my Diploma in Craniosacral Therapy and certification in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology from The College of Craniosacral Therapy  (CCST) in London.  I am a registered member of The Craniosacral Therapy Association and adhere to their Code of Ethics and Conduct.  I am fully insured and first-aid certified.  

Currently, I assist on the CCST Professional Training Course, in Manchester and practice from The Chapel Allerton Holistic Centre and The Yorkshire Dance Centre, in Leeds.

I would like to give special thanks to the Dancers' Career Development for their support on my transition.
