Registered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist

I first discovered alternative therapies during my second pregnancy, when I suffered a chronic illness that conventional medicine could not help. The results kept me out of hospital and were so fantastic that I decided to train and qualify as a homeopath at the London College of Practical Homeopathy. I went on to further qualify as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist at the Karuna Institute, Devon and as a Chi Kung Teacher at the College of Elemental Chi Kung, London. I am registered with the CSTA and am awaiting EMR recognition. I am also a CELTA - teacher of English as a Foreign Language, with several years experience of teaching here in Basel.
