About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced Shiatsu Practitioner, who has offered Shiatsu treatments in Bradford on Avon since 2009.

Prior to Shiatsu, I had studied Social Work in Germany and I have over 20 years experience supporting people with physical, mental and emotional health issues.

Both, my three-year training at the Bristol School of Shiatsu and my experience in Social Work have given me the skills to create a safe and accepting space and to perform SHIATSU with compassion and authenticity.

In addition to working as Shiatsu Practitioner, I have supported adults with learning disabilities in various Hydropools for many years. Witnessing how their bodies move with lightness, and the joy, peace and deep trust people experience when being floated in warm water has deeply touched me.

I am passionate about Shiatsu and I do love water. … Therefore in 2013 I started to trained in Water Shiatsu (Watsu) and I am a fully qualified Watsu Practitioner since 2015.

My aspiration is to introduce more and more people with and without disabilities to this fantastic kind of Aquatic Bodywork, called Watsu.

Since 2018 I am also a certificated Halliwick Instructor teaching school-age children with additional needs and their parents and/or carers the Halliwick concept at Harry’s Hydro in Frome. (The Halliwick concept is an approach that uses a Ten Point Programme to teach all people, in particular focusing on disabled people, to participate in water activities, to move independently in water and to swim without using flotation aids.)

For my own personal well-being I spend plenty of time in nature, receive regular Shiatsu treatments and practice Qigong.

I receive regular supervision and attend Shiatsu and Watsu related training courses as part of my continuous professional development.
