About Hannah

 

"My wish is for people to create a little more time for themselves, to experience less stress, anxiety and overwhelm in their lives and to understand what their body feels like when it's relaxed and calm".


I was a social worker for nearly 20 years, working with adults with a range of physical health issues; mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety and adults with learning needs. 

 

I found Cranio-Sacral therapy in 2000 following a car accident.  I remember being intrigued by the simplicity of the therapists touch and yet it’s incredible healing ability to not only resolve my physical injuries but release the shock of the accident I hadn’t realised my body was holding onto. 

 

I returned to this therapy following some significant life events and it helped me so much that I decided to train to become a therapist at the College of Cranio-Sacral Therapy in London.

Whilst I work with all people of all ages, I specialise in working with children with a range of emotional and learning needs and prior to Covid 19, spent one day a week volunteering at a local community special school.  I am a member of the Cranio-Sacral Therapy Association and I am committed to ongoing professional development.

 

It’s amazing how in tune with our bodies we can become if we stop to listen.
