 Our Services At the Healing Practice  

We specialise in the health and well-being of our clients. Our orientation is holistic, in that a body-focused approach is often the best pathway to health for clients, through  massage and manipulative muscular-skeletal techniques; and more gentle modalities such as Craniosacral therapy and Bowen Technique. For others, it is through a more mind-focused approach such as clinical counselling, psychotherapy, hypnosis and  coaching, that clients embark on for a more specific and indepth pathway for growth and change.

Is your ‘Why am I here’ at a low ebb? Are you going backwards but want to go forward? Or are you looking for inspiration in creating a knock-out future? And need support to change?  Find out by scheduling a free chat.
