Lee Avery

Hypnotherapist in Thatcham

I am Lee Avery and a Bowen Therapist, mother, grandmother, and animal lover with a passion for helping people to feel better both physically and mentally.
I have experienced a varied background in the corporate world but realised that I wanted to find something more fulfilling. In the past, my hobbies included competitive running and cycling at a high level, qualifying for the age group world championships of Duathlon. However, during this time I was frequently injured and experimented with many treatments. The only treatment that had an impact for me was Bowen Therapy. I knew I wanted to leave the corporate world and be able to help people improve their quality of life. For that reason, I became a personal trainer and UK athletics coach and trained in Bowen Therapy, qualifying with CBS in December 2011. It became very apparent after only a couple of years that Bowen Therapy is my passion. I am glad to have gone through the personal trainer's course as it gives me an in-depth knowledge of movement patterns and I still use this knowledge today amongst many other tools that I have learnt along my journey. I am a member of BTPA, CNHC, and FHT and I very much believe in continuing to develop my skills and can often be found on Bowen Therapy and associated courses. The body and mind are connected, and one can have an amazing impact on the other so alongside Bowen I have studied, NLP, Positive Psychology, Psychotherapy, EFT, and EMDR plus and relaxation techniques. I can offer these either alongside a Bowen Treatment or as a stand-alone therapy. I always offers an in-depth consultation whereby it is possible to discuss the different options and ensure that you are comfortable with them. I was delighted to receive the "Corporate Live Wire London and Southeast Prestige Award" for "Therapist of the Year" in July 2021. My end goal is to help you feel better both physically and emotionally.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I wish to make you feel welcome and know what to expect as many clients are nervous on their first appointment so I send out a confirmation email with all relevant forms (or posted), where to find me, what to wear and what to expect prior to your first appointment. There will be a thorough consultation at the first appointment taking into account your lifestyle and anything you wish to discuss. Assessments may be carried out if required and then a treatment takes place. Each appointment is tailored to what you require and lasts an hour. Bowen is a very gentle treatment and can be carried out fully clothed.

An initial course of three treatments is recommended to see how you respond to treatment. Some clients will experience instant pain relief, whereas with others the body may respond over the next few days, but normally even chronic conditions will see relief with an initial set of three treatments.

It is recommended that clients are receiving no other physical therapies whilst being treated with the Bowen Technique
