About Me

About Me

A native of Newcastle, Co Down, I graduated from Queens University with a BA in French and Spanish in 1978, studied to become a teacher at Trinity and All Saints Colleges in Leeds.

I then went to London for a number of years where I entered the teaching profession.

I returned to Newcastle got married and have spent the last 25 years living in the locality.

I became interested in complementary therapies many years ago as I struggled along with the medical profession in trying to address the many serious, critical healthcare issues of my oldest child.

In the beginning, I was extremely sceptical about the family of complementary therapies including Bowen, but desperation is a great motivator and to my astonishment and delight results followed.

A doctor in a hospital said to me “I don’t know what you are doing but whatever it is keep doing it.”

I, myself, have most of my life struggled with ongoing back pain. I did not want to spend my life living on painkillers and after many years of trying many different therapies I discovered The BOWEN TECHNIQUE. How could something so gentle be so powerful? I was hooked.

As my children were nearly up and away I decided to investigate further and undertook my training in the Bowen technique with the European College of Bowen Studies. I studied under Sylvia Wilkinson and was examined in the end by Julian Baker, Chief Director of the European College of Bowen Studies.

What an exhilarating journey that has been! Right from the beginning my clients began responding in very positive ways to Bowen and I am continually amazed at the effectiveness of this gentle treatment.

I became an Accredited Practitioner of the Bowen Technique in February 2014 and undertook further study to gain a Diploma in Anatomy and Physiology to Level 3. I also hold a First Aid Certificate.

I am a member of ABTI, ( Accredited Bowen Therapists of Ireland).
