Background & Qualifications

After personally experiencing the effectiveness of complementary health treatment in my 20s, I eventually changed my career path after the birth of my daughter and became a holistic massage therapist in 2005. I started working for private clients at the Headcorn Natural Health Clinic in Kent. During this time I also qualified as a level 2 Reiki practitioner with the NRG Association and in several other massage modalities including Indian head massage.

In 2006 I needed to move a bit closer to home and worked for a well established osteopath assisting him in his busy practice in Tenterden as well as looking after my private clients. Later, I came across the Bowen Technique and qualified to practice in 2008 and moved on to The Tenterden Natural Health Clinic to concentrate on building my own private practice moving away from full body massage and instead offering the Bowen Technique, Indian head massage and Reiki. I remained at The Tenterden Natural Health Clinic 2008 - 2019 and during this time I continued my professional development and qualified to practice Bach Flower Remedies, amongst other things.

In 2019 I moved my practice back home and now run a busy clinic in Northiam, Nr Rye, East Sussex, where I can offer a greater choice of appointment times during the week to suit my clients' needs. The therapies offered are given in a private, friendly and relaxed atmosphere with the aim to work with you, selecting the right treatment for your current circumstances.

My Specialisms

The Bowen Technique

I have been working as a professional therapist since 2005 with a strong background in massage therapy. Nowadays, I use The Bowen Technique, Reiki and Bach Flower remedies and common presentations of particular interest are back, shoulder and neck problems including sciatica, frozen shoulder, lumbar pain as well as long term chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, Parkinsons, ME, stress and anxiety.

Please note: The Bowen Technique and other complementary therapies do not replace conventional medicine, and you should always seek the advice of your GP. Complementary therapists do not diagnose, nor do they prescribe or alter medication. They may, however, advise clients to be regularly assessed by their doctor in case their medication dose needs to be adjusted.

Resilience Coaching

My aim is to help you to enjoy better health and well-being by supporting you to find and use your inner resilience, which is your ability to adapt and bounce back when things don't go as planned. I offer a safe and non-judgemental space for us to work in to explore together ways to optimize key areas of your life that you are struggling with: whether it be your health, your work life, your relationships or life changes, all of which affect your well-being on a physical, mental and even spiritual level.

Do you often feel a sense of overwhelm?
Is there something in life that you yearn to do, but just don't know how to start?
Are you stuck in a pattern of negative thinking?
Are you struggling with a big life change?
Are you looking for more purpose in life?
Are certain relationships creating undue stress for you?
Are you looking for a calmer more peaceful existence?
Are you struggling with poor health, stress, anxiety, chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia?
Is there an area of your life you wish to improve?
With resilience coaching, we will work together to help enhance your self-motivation and self-regulation and reveal your hidden strengths to navigate change whilst building psychological resources to help you going forwards. My ultimate goal is to support you to find your joy and passion again as well as empower you take on any challenges in life, leading you to feel truly purposeful, valued and fulfilled.

I am nearly at the end of my studies and I can currently offer a free one hour coaching session for 60mins via Skype, Zoom, Whats App, Facetime or phone.

Testimonials

I would have no hesitation in recommending her
"

Kate on 25/11/2021

"I cannot emphasise enough how wonderful Bowen Therapy is with Lisa. After a couple of sessions I noticed significant differences in my mobility in the ‘problem areas' but not only that, it's extremely calming and is a fantastic source for healing of the mind and body. Highly recommend it! "

Nick Steele on 02/12/2021

"After normal physio was not helping me, I tried the Bowen technique - and have not looked back since. Lisa is a highly professional, skilled and kind practitioner who understands issues holistically. I am constantly amazed at how a pain in the shoulder for example may be treated by work on the hip. Her interventions are gentle, but have a deep effect. I would highly recommend Lisa as she is friendly, engaging, takes her time to sort out the problem and - most importantly - really helps. "
