and tutorials for practitioners in training
Professional supervision
I offer professional supervision to craniosacral practitioners who have more than two years in practice, and to other complementary healthcare professionals. I have completed a CSTA-accredited training in Contemplative Supervision, based on the Core Process psychotherapeutic approach developed by the Karuna Institute.
Contemplative supervision facilitates an invigorating, empowering and rewarding exploration of all aspects of your practice and professional development, while maintaining a commitment to client confidentiality.
Individual, face-to-face only: £65 for 50mins
Groups (2–3 practitioners): £130–145 for
1h40 with 30mins each for individual focus.
Specialist clinical supervision
I also offer specialist clinical supervision to craniosacral practitioners and other complementary healthcare professionals working with chronic fatigue conditions, such as ME/CFS and fibromyalgia. These sessions can include tutorials on the autonomic nervous system dysregulation underlying fatigue conditions.
Face-to-face, by phone or skype: £65 for 50mins
Groups (2–3 practitioners): £130–145 for
1h40 with 30mins each for individual focus.
Tutorials and supervised practice sessions to students and graduates
I am passionate about supporting the learning processes of craniosacral practitioners in training. I offer tutorials and supervised practice sessions to students and graduates:
Tutorials on anatomy and physiology, and craniosacral therapy theory and practice.
Individual: £80 for 50mins
Group (up to four students): £90 for 50mins or £170 for 100mins
Supervised practice sessions – one to one attention on all aspects of your practice, with joint hands-on sessions to support your palpation skills.
Student/graduate plus client: £65 for 50mins
Two students/graduates: £150 for 1h40
Spaces are limited; please contact me for availability, and book directly with me, rather than the Healthy Living Centre’s reception.
Training and teaching experience
Having trained at the Craniosacral Educational Trust (CTET) in 2004/6 (with Claire Dolby, Colin Perrow, Ged Sumner and Michael Kern), I have assisted on both undergraduate and postgraduate trainings with CTET and Body Intelligence. I have taught on CTET’s Living Anatomy foundation training and supervised Body Intelligence student clinics. I now teach advanced seminars to qualified craniosacral therapists for CTET, as well as independent CPD programmes, on areas of special interest, including the human microbiome.
I am IABT-accredited, and, as a CSTA-registered practitioner, I am bound by the Craniosacral Therapy Association's code of ethics in practice. I value regular professional supervision with a UKCP-accredited supervisor.
Background and Continuing
Professional Development
I draw on my background in medical biosciences (BSc and medical research) and ongoing interests in neuroscience and physiology. I am committed to my own continuing professional development, including advanced craniosacral training with pioneers in the cranial field (these have included Ged Sumner, Katherine Ukleja, Michael Shea, Mike Boxhall, Paul Vick and Steve Haines) with a range of craniosacral training institutions, as well as specialist trainings outside the cranial field that broaden my clinical skills.
Further details about the postgraduate and advanced trainings I have undertaken can be found on my professional facebook page. Information on some of the postgraduate classes I have taught can be found on my news page.
