CranioSacral Therapy is a hands on light touch therapy that focuses on the full health potential of the individual. It has the power to resolve long held health issues in the patients history on a physical, mental and emotional level. This treatment supports the body's own self healing mechanism and calms the central nervous system aiding stress reduction and pain management.

It offers the client the opportunity to connect with inner resources and to access levels of stillness, balance and inner calm

Cranial sacral therapy (CST) is type of bodywork that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum (a triangular bone in the lower back), and spinal column.


CST is noninvasive. It uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve the stress and pain caused by compression. It can, as a result, help to treat a number of conditions.


It’s thought that through the gentle manipulation of the bones in the skull, spine, and pelvis, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system can be normalized. This removes “blockages” from the normal flow, which enhances the body’s ability to heal. CST clears restrictions in the fascial tissues of the body. These are the soft tissue layers that are continuous throughout the whole body and envelop every organ, muscle and bone down to the individual cells. As a light, hands-on approach, CST harmonizes with the body's natural hydraulic forces and movements

Relaxation has long been valued for its healing and restorative effects on the body and encouraging deep states of relaxation in the body is easily facilitated by Craniosacral therapy. The main centres of the nervous system lie in the cranial and sacral regions and the gentle manipulations of CST modulate the balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, optimising the function of both. Craniosacral therapy requires no equipment, only the gentle hands and clear intention of the therapist. Everybody can avail themselves of its benefits, from babies to centenarians (and beyond).




I am a qualified CranioSacral therapist and IACP accredited Psychotherapist. I work with a range of physical, mental and emotional issues and specialise in helping adults and children with stress and anxiety, using evidence based techniques.


My work as a psychotherapist involves listening to my clients and offering insight as well as tools and methods to help my clients create a more fulfilling and peaceful life. As a CranioSacral therapist I include a deeper layer of listening to the body with my hands. The body is full of information and wisdom that can be heard in the right environment. As a CranioSacral therapist  I trust the clients innate ability to heal if they are listened to. This can have a profound and long lasting effect.
