Remedial Masssage

I qualified as a sports remedial massage therapist with the North London School of Sports massage in 2007. Since then I have worked in physiotherapy clinics in London and Sussex and in the South West, close to Bristol and Bath. I still run my Clinics in South London and in West Sussex.

I was fortunate to be chosen as one if the sports massage therapists to work at the London 2012 Olympics working with elite world class athletes.  It was an inspiring and interesting time.
Both young and old can benefit from sports massage and I am committed to helping those with chronic and persistent soft tissue injuries and wear and tear problems.
I develop my practice by regularly attending courses in order to keep myself informed of the latest research and techniques in sports massage therapy.
My practice offers preventative therapy, strategies and hopefully solutions to persistent and long term problems.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy

Hi I'm Lindsay. After 20 years of being in stressful Software Developer roles, I decided to take the leap and change careers. I retrained as a qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist & NLP Practitioner at the renowned Quest Institute at Regent's University in London.

I have had many different types of therapy in my life, but the changes wouldn't quite stick. Therapy is a personal journey for each and every one of us and what works for one person might not work for another. I found Cognitive Hypnotherapy was the one thing that really made the changes stick for me.

I love learning and Cognitive Hypnotherapy allows me to continue learning new things all the time. I regularly attend CPD workshops on a range of subjects. I have a special interest in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or tapping as it's also known as) and how that can integrate within my Cognitive Hypnotherapy practice. I also have a passion for helping people assigned a womb at birth with their Menopause journey, people with chronic pain and the mind-body connection. As someone who has had chronic pain, I am fascinated by treating the whole body and not just a part of the body. 

I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and a member of the Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy Practitioner's Association (QCHPA) of which I am bound by their code of ethics. As part of these ethics and my insurance I have regular sessions with my supervisor.

Get in touch for a free 30 minute discovery chat to see if I can help.

Facial Energy Release

When I qualified as a Reflexologist over 25 years ago, a whole new world of healing opened up to me and I have continued to work on my personal and professional development.  I now consider myself an holistic therapist who combines all the knowledge and skills that I have gathered into my treatments.

I am a Member of the Association of Reflexologists* and practice Classical, Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) and Hand reflexology.  I use essential oils and reiki routinely and advise when necessary on diet, exercise and hydration.  I practice yoga daily and realise the importance of breathing well and the benefits of Mindfulness which I promote to all my clients.  I also encourage self-help, showing the areas of the feet and hands that would be beneficial for them to work between sessions with me.

Qualifying as a Facial Energy Release practitioner was a natural progression.  This highly relaxing and rejuvenating therapy is wonderful to receive and a joy to give.

I'm really looking forward to becoming part of the Courtyard Natural Therapy Centre team.

After discovering the healing power of good nutrition whilst suffering a period of ill health, I decided to study nutritional therapy so I could help others achieve optimal health and wellness. I am passionate about nutrition and wellbeing and empower my clients to take their health into their own hands to feel well, gain energy and enjoy food! Even small changes can make a big difference to how you feel each day.
I graduated from the college of naturopathic medicine and gained over 200 hours of clinical experience and I am a registered member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapy and applied nutrition (BANT).
During an initial consultation I will go over your current symptoms, medical history and where appropriate your lifestyle, to help me identify any potential nutritional deficiencies or imbalances. Backed by evidence-based clinical research I will then deliver a plan personalised to your health needs and goals.
In some cases I may use specific functional tests that help to determine the root cause of the symptoms you are experiencing and through diet, supplementation and practical lifestyle changes harness your body's own innate healing ability.
Nutritional therapy can help with digestive issues, food intolerances, auto immune conditions, hormonal issues, menopause, thyroid disease, low energy and fatigue, acne and other skin complaints, pain and inflammation, post viral fatigue, fertility, general wellbeing and much more.

I am a graduate from the Practical College of Homeopathy 2006.   I have a passion for homeopathy that has kept me wanting to be involved with different clinics, working with different patients, seeing peoples' life improve with homeopathic help.  In Bath I worked with Maggie Dixon, who is on the board of the Society of Homeopaths.  I taught in the student clinic run by Maggie, at Homeopathy Direct and whilst practising there I saw a wide variety of patients   

I am now, after having three children, working in Somerset.   My continued love of the beauty of homeopathy as both a health option & mental support means it is something I will always be working with and sharing through my homeopathic practice.
