Services Overview

I turn worriers into warriors.

I use counselling and coaching techniques to help with emotional unease ranging from childhood trauma/abuse to recent work-related or personal stress. My passion is combining Bowen and counselling/coaching to help alleviate physical pain with an emotional base, or to help clients work through the emotional impact of long term health conditions and/or pain. Clients can book a single treatment of Bowen therapy, a course of counselling sessions or a regular time slot to use as they feel they need to on the day.

For people struggling with any aspect of the COVID-19 crisis I offer a one-off, hour long session of CBT, counselling and coaching to help you work through whatever is troubling you and to develop some practical strategies to resolve it. These sessions are FREE and can be delivered face to face or online.

Bowen therapy is a soft tissue therapy which affects the muscles, fascia and the systems controlled by muscles. It’s a hands on, gentle therapy administered through clothing. It can relieve pain as well as improving energy and sleep, helping with breathing or digestive problems and improving movement.

I have a clinic in Coleford on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and can travel up to 20 miles from Lydney to see those who are unable to get to a clinic. I also offer talking therapy online via Zoom.

Practitioner Profile

I’m passionate about helping people ditch their pain.   After a long career in corporate HR and suffering from stress and depression myself, I took the opportunity offered by redundancy to retrain to help other people feeling as bad as I did.   I saw so many people suffering both physically and emotionally that I decided to combine Bowen and counselling/coaching into a single holistic package. Research shows physical pain and emotional unease are very closely linked and there are very few physical therapists offering treatment for both. 

I have lived in the beautiful Forest of Dean with my husband and a succession of dogs, cats and horses for 20 years.
