Frequently Asked Questions

It’s only natural to have a few questions, if you can’t find the answer below drop me a message

What will happen on the first session?

The first session we’ll talk about your history, undertake some simple assessments of how you move, it’s nothing to worry about, but it helps build up a picture of what is happening within your body, breath and nervous system.

How do I book?

Click here to book an appointment.  This opens in a new window.

What do you charge?

I offer a 30 minute “Let’s Talk” online appointment for new clients.  During the session we’ll work together to go through your history, look at how you move, develop an understanding of what is currently going on for you and what positive change means for you.  

This helps me work out whether I can provide the right support and facilitation for your healing journey.  The £10 cost will be deducted when you go on to book your first appointment.

Let’s Talk – £10

In person appointments – £110 (up to 90 mins)

Virtual appointments – £75 (up to 60 mins)

Restoring your Balance package of 4 appointments – £395 

What is the package Restoring your Balance all about?

Restoring your Balance is a brand new offering – it’s 4 x 90 min appointments to help you find your balance again, it’s a whole health reset that is unique to you.

We’ll start by identifying what is going on for you, then moving to building some solid foundations for your future health and wellbeing. Working together we’ll flow between movement and structure, through to nutrition, emotional wellbeing and stress.

 

The sessions can be online or in person (when I can restart them) or a combination of both. 

You’ll also be able to join the community support group – Restoring your Balance.

How do I pay?

I can accept payment all major cards.  Whilst we remain in the COVID-19 pandemic payments will taken through my booking portal or by using bank transfer.

What do I wear?

If this is your first consultation, please wear or make sure you bring some clothing that is easy to move in such as shorts / leggings / loose fitting bottoms and a thin, comfortable fitting top to change into before the appointment for the testing element of the session

Clinical treatments are normally carried out with clothes on.  Most people come to clinic in clean sports wear.  

Will I need to complete a client history form?

Yes, absolutely.  The form that I use is quite long and requires quite a bit of detail, most of which may not appear immediately relevant. Many aches & pains may have their root cause somewhere in your history, so it is vital that any historic information forms part of your treatment.

Pay particular attention to the dental work, scars, tattoo’s, piercings etc section, as well as any childhood misadventures or broken bones.  It’s becoming more common that early childhood accidents are relevant to solving systemic issues which often come to the surface during the initial consultation. It might be worth making a timeline of injuries, accidents, tattoos etc.

With that in mind it’s often best to revisit the form several times before the first session, as older injuries / trauma, easily get forgotten. 

As a therapist it’s great to receive your form before your session, as it gives me a chance to review it to help structure our session.

Can I buy a gift voucher?

Yes, absolutely – giving the gift of health and wellness is a fabulous gift.

You can buy vouchers from my web shop or from me directly in clinic.
