I practise holistic therapy. Holistic means that I treat the whole
person, not just the symptoms. For example, if I visit you at your home to
treat the RSI you suffer from in your wrists and hands, I'll also help you to
find and tackle the cause of your problem (which may involve me having a look at
the way you sit at your computer). If you're suffering from stress, as
well as offering relaxing treatments I'll also help you to manage your stress.
I've been practising yoga for many years, so if you have a physical condition
that is made worse by poor posture I may be able to teach you some
stretches to improve your condition. I may give you breathing
exercises or we may do some meditation. Experience has taught me that the
most effective treatments are the ones that are the most pleasurable, and what
is pleasurable changes from person to person and varies with time. Therefore,
each treatment is unique, and a TREAT. Follow the link below for a list of
therapies. This list gives an idea of the type of therapies I can offer, but one
treatment may include different therapies depending on your requirements.
My TREATments can help you relax, sleep, give you energy, make you more supple
and flexible, increase your concentration or alleviate pain.

I'm a practical and down-to-earth
person but I have nurtured my spiritual side too. As a scientist I understand
the different types of energy; if I had the proper equipment I could measure
them! As a therapist I've trained myself to be aware of these energies on a
spiritual and instinctive / intuitive level, enabling me to work with them.
In the Workplace
I've developed my Indian Head Massage technique to be effective in 15 minutes,
perfect for workplace treatments! And I don't leave people feeling sleepy and
unable to work! I offer stress management advice and can
assist with ergonomics (how to arrange desks, equipment etc to protect the
user). I can also give advice on sick building syndrome, chemical exposures and
hazards, occupational hygiene and health and safety.
Why not throw a healing party? Give your
guests a TREAT and hold a party to remember!
I can visit you and your friends at your party
and give everyone a TREATment, or we can do some group meditation.
Business Cards etc
I offer design and print solutions for business cards and stationery etc.,
particularly aimed at the small business or sole trader who wants their business
cards and stationery to get them noticed and give the right impression but
doesn't want to purchase hundreds at a time. Watch this space for some examples
of my work.
If you'd like a gift voucher, I'll present it for you in a decorated envelope
with a leaflet that contains no prices. The voucher may state on it, for example
"this voucher entitles the bearer to a 30 minute holistic therapy treatment at a
suitably convenient time and location". You can order a voucher and
I can post it to you as soon as payment has cleared.

My standard prices for holistic therapy TREATments is £20 for 30 minutes, £30
for an hour, £40 for 1.5 hours etc. £5 extra for aromatherapy. I am
occasionally able to offer 15 minute treatments for £8-10, these are usually at
day events. But I may be interested in a service or product trade.
For example, if you're an electrician, plumber or even a window cleaner and
you'd like a treatment please call me!
My day rate for corporate events is
The cost of designing business cards
begins at £25 but depends on your requirements. For example, it would cost
more if you want me to visit you and take some photographs with a digital camera
to use in the design, or if you would like some original, hand drawn artwork.
I can provide references from individuals or businesses if required.
I have public liability insurance and am insured for aromatherapy and
massage therapies with cover for any aromatherapy or skin care products I sell.
I can meet you or TREAT you at your home or workplace, or at another suitable
location. I sometimes use rooms in the following locations:
53 Chesterfield Road
239 London Road
I've been experiencing a creative time of late
and I'm selling my paintings. They're abstract and you can get them from
under £5! Follow the link below to see an example (I'm afraid the picture
doesn't really do it justice). You can see and purchase some of them from the
Bohemian now, and from the Airy Fairy for 2 months beginning the 7th October
2007. The paintings are double sided so you get 2 in one! They're painted on
clear acetate so you can see the side that was painted and the "back". Please
contact me if you'd like to order some paintings of a specific size or colour,
or if you'd like them mounting in a particular colour.
