With nearly 30 years experience in the world of healing, people and physiotherapy I am inspired by leading-edge approaches that produce excellent results, approaches that may even challenge traditional methods The two approaches I work with are based on clinical research, evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence.
Both approaches acknowledge the deep connection between mind and body and have led me to profoundly evolve the way I practise physiotherapy.
SIRPA and Be Activated enable me to offer a more complete and up to date physiotherapy service to help my clients recover from pain and injury in a holistic way and empower them to reach a more optimal comfortable, strong, flexible & resilient state, mind and body.
Activating Strength with Be Activated
Be Activated is an extraordinary, whole-body physical treatment concept that I learnt from the founding South African physiotherapist, Douglas Heel. The technique taps into our unused neuromuscular capability and I am delighted to have seen the amazing changes this whole-body programme has made to clients. It is empowering and easy to learn to carry on on your own at home, before exercise or activity.
Be Activated acknowledges the deep influence the mind has on our body’s physiology & strength, especially stressful & traumatic experiences from our past and present.
Freedom from Pain with SIRPA
The mind-body link of Be Activated and the huge amount of research into ‘pain’ over the last decade or so, led me to the work of Georgie Oldfield. Georgie, also a Chartered Physiotherapist, trained in the United States with the ground-breaking physician, Dr John Sarno.
Dr Sarno helped 1000s of long-term 'pain patients' recover. Georgie and her organisation, SIRPA, brought the work of Dr Sarno and his American successors to the UK and Europe. No matter how severe or long-standing chronic pain has been present, their methods have shown that relief is possible.
Knowing there is a treatment process that can help people gain relief from debilitating persistent pain and not just manage it, I chose to qualify as a SIRPA practitioner.
I now help my clients gain a deeper understanding of the psychological and emotional aspects to their injuries, pain and/or performance, and teach them the additional skills to help them finally gain relief from their symptoms.
Through life experience I appreciate the benefits alternative therapies can offer, especially when trying to tap in to the complexities of mind, body and healing energy. I therefore became a PSYCH-K Facilitator and trained in Jikiden Reiki.
My other passions
An essential element to everyone's full health is to learn to balance work, rest and play. I have a wonderful teenage family and we share our home with two dogs, a cat and even a pet rat. You’ll see me walking or running the wonderful footpaths of Durley most days as I absorb the wonders of nature, fresh air and daylight.
I love to get out on my bike and ride the back-roads of our local South Downs and enjoy keeping fit with an ever changing regime, including strength training and yoga for mind and body. I love meeting up with friends and family, and have become addicted to reading & learning. I savour the quiet times for reflection & appreciation of all the marvels, miracles and magic that surround us.
