Despite having been around for over 60 years, Bowen therapy is still relatively unknown. Because it helps the body to heal itself rather than healing it, its possibilities are very wide-ranging.
Emotional Therapeutic Counselling (ETC) is a client-led counselling modality which seeks to identify the root cause behind issues such as anxiety, depression or lack of confidence. As such it can be long term but well worth the effort.
I provide a variety of other services including online self-help courses and personal development workshops.
I also offer Indian Head Massage and Reiki.
I am a fully qualified, insured and eDBS checked Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor, Bowen therapist and Reiki practitioner operating from a clinic in Coleford. I also offer online counselling and a mobile Bowen service for those who can't get to a clinic.

Smart Bowen Therapy is a hands-on physical therapy developed in Australia during the mid 20th century by Thomas Ambrose Bowen. It has since been developed and become accessible worldwide.
Using their thumbs and fingers and working through clothing, the therapist applies accurately placed moves over specific areas of the body in a series of rolling movements that work across muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Without force or manipulation these moves 'ask' the body to recognise and make the necessary changes to initiate natural healing processes.
Between each series of moves the client is left to rest for a few minutes, to allow the body to absorb the information it has received and make the changes it needs.
Many people find Bowen Therapy brings relief when other interventions, both traditional and complimentary, have failed. Relief can be instantaneous and only one or two treatments can be sufficient to bring about a permanent recovery. Other conditions may take longer or need a regular maintenance programme to keep the client pain free.
Bowen can help even where you are not aware of any pain or restriction in movement. Sportspeople report that their performance is enhanced and they are more resistant to injury when they have regular Bowen treatments.
The positive effects of Bowen Therapy are complemented by Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation or PNF Stretching, which helps to 'set' the work.
