A full member of the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA), Kate also regularly increases her skills and knowledge by studying and attending advanced courses.
Having always had an interest in alternative and holistic medicine, it was the birth of Kate's daughter that prompted her to follow this interest and change her field of work. The experience and understanding she has gained during - and since - her initial training, she says, has been vast and invaluable.
Amongst other qualifications, Kate is a Homeopath and Flower Essence practitioner, qualified with the Lakeland College of Homeopathy, and she finds that remedies can work wonderfully alongside Bowen helping to resolve more complex problems.
The broad range of physical, mental and emotional problems that respond to the Bowen Technique is so impressive. Being a holistic therapy it is worth considering for so many ailments.
I have helped people resolve many problems including the following conditions:
Headaches & migraines
Shoulder and Neck pain / Frozen Shoulder
Tennis / Golfers' Elbow
Wrist and arthritic pain
Hip and pelvic pain
Knee, ankle and foot pain, including Plantar Faciitis
Hayfever, Respiratory problems
IBS, Digestive issues
MS, ME/Chronic Fatigue
Fibromyalgia, Polymyalgia Rheumatism
PMT and Menstrual pain problems
Stress related illness
Grief, Bereavement and emotional problems
Bowen Technique and Homeopathy can work wonderfully together if the need arises, supporting and healing on many levels. This will only be suggested when appropriate and if the client is comfortable with this.
My approach to work is a gentle and reassuring one with both Bowen Technique and Homeopathy. I treat every person according to who they are, taking into account not only their presenting symptoms but also their medical history and susceptibilities. If it is appropriate, I help them identify the possible root and maintaining causes of the pain and "dis-ease" in the longer term, suggesting alternative ways to sort out and help them return to pain free and fulfilling lives.
I always have the clients' best interest at heart and help make them feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible, both physically and emotionally. Patient confidentiality is paramount in my work, along with adhering to the BTPA's strict Ethics and Code of Practise.
The wonderful thing about Bowen is that the treatment does not need to continue over a long period of time. Within 2 or 3 treatments patients can generally see if this therapy is for them, with long-term or chronic complaints, and this can be sooner for acute issues. Having Bowen therapy as soon as possible after injury, stress or strain can help the body back to a state of well-being very fast and has also been used to prevent recurring injuries. This fact is borne out by the fact that more and more sports people opt for it, including Bear Grylls and footballer Dwight Yorke to name just two.
I treat all clients - including those with long term chronic conditions, such as Parkinsons, MS, ME/chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Polymyalgia Rheumatism - with the appropriate touch and relevant treatment to help ease their symptoms, creating the right environment for them to on from their state of "dis-ease".
If I feel that some Homeopathic remedies or Essences may be appropriate or beneficial to Bowen patients, or Bowen Technique for Homeopathy patients, then I outline this to the person and let them decide if they are interested. I have also used Emotional Freedom Technique, and Matrix Reimprinting, with great effect on occasions - having an ever growing variety of tools and expereince in my skill set is infinitely useful. Everybody is born with their own unique patterns and susceptibilities, sometimes requiring help to resolve when problems arise.
Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine that has been practised worldwide for more than 200 years, being popular in mainland Europe and widespread on other continents, such as India. It is integrated into the national health care systems of countries like Germany, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Greece, Israel, India, Pakistan and Mexico and in Europe, approximately 40% of all physicians use or refer patients to practitioners of homeopathy.
The idea of gently helping the body to heal itself over a period of time can seem impractical or too wishy-washy, but the experience of many is positive; that in itself is enough of an incentive for people to use it. It can be used alongside used alongside prescription drugs, medical procedures and surgical interventions, reducing side-effects and promoting a sense of well-being. Homeopathic remedies do not reduce the effectiveness of prescription drugs and are side-effect free.
Please note the rates detailed below are there to give you an idea of the therapists standard rates, we strongly advise you contact the therapist for more detailed rates and any offers they may have.
|Bowen Technique||In Person||£40 per 60 minutes|
These costs reflect the value of the treatment I give. The first appointment is £50 as it is 90 minutes in duration, allowing me to get a fuller understanding of your presenting problems and their possible roots. This applies to both Bowen Technique and Homeopathy consultations. With Bowen Technique, I generally book patients new to the therapy for a follow up treatment about 7-10 days later when they book their first appointment. With Homeopathy, the cost of the treatment includes the remedies and essences prescribed.

"Kate has a wonderful approach because she listens my ramblings and complaints and then includes me in the treatments, because she knows my body can heal itself given the required support, release and alignment through homeopathy and Bowen treatments - and now I know it can too.
Thank you Kate"

"I have been visiting Kate on and off for several years and have been amazed how Bowen has helped me. Kate is a warm, kind person and a very good ambassador for her talents. Wise and thoughtful and so often she has been there for me when needed be it prior to an operation, after illness or just when the body is weary mentally and physically. She gives so much and is simply a very nice person to have therapy with!"

"I would totally recommend this therapy and I am thrilled with the treatment I have had with Kate. I had a recurrent whiplash injury that I had struggled with for years, after 3 sessions I saw a drastic improvement, and I am now pain free. I see Kate once every 6 weeks as I a do a lot of sport and this enables me to ensure that any strains or aches and pains are dealt with straight away.
