I have a great passion for Kinesiology and nutritional therapy as they have helped me personally to overcome many conditions and regain my health and balance. My journey has been difficult and varied, but very worthwhile, as I can now use my personal experiences alongside my qualifications and training to help others facing health concerns with compassion, empathy and true insight.
My approach in the Natural Health Consultation with Kinesiology sessions combines Nutritional Therapy, Kinesiology techniques, Detox, Emotional Release Work, Massage, and sometimes other modalities such as Reiki Healing and Reflexology, with Kinesiology Muscle Testing as the primary tool to assess exactly what your body needs. I work with priority issues in the order that the body tells me to, as our bodies know exactly what is wrong and what it needs at the time. I am a firm believer that our bodies are amazingly and ultimately equipped to look after themselves without interference with drugs, supplements and remedies when in a balanced, healthy state, and my study of German New Medicine has further confirmed this to me. Therefore my aim is to bring you back into a healthy state of balance as quickly and effectively as possible so your body can get on with doing what it does best! I use natural methods such as supplements, herbs, and many different energetic techniques, most of which will only be short term. In addition, to prevent recurrence and for the longer term, I will empower you with with diet and lifestyle advice, help you to understand the relevant processes your body is carrying out, identify any traumas or conflicts that may have triggered your symptoms and teach you any relevant self-help tools you can use at home.
WHAT THE SESSIONS INVOLVE
The initial session is basically split in 2 parts: first is in the form of a consultation, second is the actual kinesiology session when I will perform various muscle tests on you.
NOTE: I have recently reformatted my sessions. I been finding that oftentimes, the consultation part of the session could take over 1.5hrs before I could even begin any kinesiology testing, and this part of the session can be as much an important part of the service as the testing itself, ensuring clients feel heard, understood and comforted so I did not want to take away from that. Additionally, my recent studies with German New Medicine perspectives can challenge the conditioned beliefs of diseases and how our bodies work and require extra explanation and sometimes counselling. Therefore, due to the work involved, to allow time for research into medications and conditions if required, and to allow clients to have a good understanding of how I will be working with them, I have found it extremely beneficial to split my original first session into an initial consultation followed by a first kinesiology session at a separate time. While these 2 sessions can still be combined for those travelling a distance or having difficulty with time off work, it can prove very draining for both myself and my client and it is therefore highly recommended to have separate visits.
Initial Consultation (approx 1 hour)
At your Initial consultation, we will complete the comprehensive health record together which includes medical and family history, current symptoms or problems, and other information that will be useful to me. You will have enough time to explain in as much detail as you are comfortable what you are experiencing and what you want to achieve from our session. This is especially useful for those who have chronic or complex health issues, past emotional trauma and is also ideal for those who are new to Natural Health. If you want to have a look at some of the information I will need, you can view the health info form by clicking here: Client Health Info Form
I explain how I work, and answer questions you may have. I will also explain what process I believe your body is carrying out with possible reasons for your symptoms. I will give you advice, possibly some ‘homework’ and some quick muscle tests to confirm what I’ve told you is correct for you, to ask that the forward plan we’ve agreed is right for you, and anything else I need to confirm at the time. This also serves as a great demonstration of how make testing works for those who are completely new to it. These initial few tests will be performed sitting or standing. If there is anything that stands out to me as an obvious imbalance, I will quickly test on that so you can begin to gain benefit straight away. As this is now a separately charged session, you do not have to commit to move forward to the full Kinesiology session if you decide that it is not right for you at this time. We can work out together what you would like to do to move forward, even if this is just Reiki or Reflexology!
Kinesiology & Natural Health Sessions (up to 2 hours)
At your kinesiology session, we will begin with a short recap and update and I will then perform various muscle tests on you while you are on the massage couch. You will generally not need to undress for this consultation. It is very helpful to wear comfortable clothes that do not restrict your movements.
Although it can vary depending on current problems, the basic tests I will do at each kinesiology session are:
– Full meridian tests for all organs and central and governing meridians
– Nutritional deficiencies and toxicities (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, probiotics, etc)
– Endocrine system check (pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, etc)
– Infection check (parasite, candida, fungus, virus, bacteria)
– Heavy metal toxicities and radiation/EMF burden
– Basic sensitivity / intolerance (gluten, lactose, casein, sugar, etc)
– If there are any hidden emotions to release
Any imbalances found will be either energy-corrected at the time, or addressed with a suitable supplement or remedy to bring back balance. Not all imbalances may be addressed if they do not test as a priority, as it may be due to a knock-on effect of another imbalance. The reason I perform all tests at each session is because new deeper imbalances can become apparent when priority imbalances are addressed.
The allowed time of up to 2 hours at your first consultation gives us plenty of time to explore your issues thoroughly, and allow plenty of time for going through what the imbalances we discover mean, and what your body has indicated it may require, in a relaxed and non-time-restricted manner. I allow up to 1.5 hours in my diary for subsequent sessions, though these can become shorter in length as we go along, therefore the follow-up sessions are charged proportionally less.
If you are new to natural health and nutrition, or need to completely change your diet or lifestyle, I have many handouts both on here and printed in my clinic for you. For a more personalised approach, if my diary allows, I may also have time to help you put a protocol together including suggesting sample meals and snack options, and make more detailed suggestions for lifestyle changes. I charge £10 per half hour extra if required.
You will receive a lot of advice and information at each session so I provide you with a copy of my findings and advice. I can also provide you with a shopping list and assist you with any purchases if you need me to.
Mini Follow-up – If you think it would be helpful for you, I can offer a mini follow-up for up to an hour about a week after your session. In this week you can fill out a food diary and we can check it through and make sure you are on the right track, and that everything is going to plan.
Accompanied Grocery Shopping – for those who are very new to the idea of checking ingredients, we can arrange that I accompany you to grocery shopping, where I can assist you with your purchases.
Combining the Initial Consultation and First Session
As explained, I am happy to combine the initial sessions, especially if you are traveling a distance to me or find it difficult getting time off work. Although if you have chronic, complex issues or have experienced a lot of previous trauma, it is highly recommended to keep the sessions separate. The combined session may also suit you if you are already knowledgeable of natural health and alternative (non-mainstream) approaches to diet and lifestyle and so in-depth explanations and advice may not necessarily be required.
If opting for a combined session, it is helpful if you are able to download and fill in the Health Consultation Form in advance and bring it with you as this will save time. You can download the form by clicking here: Client Health Info Form
Express MOT Service (mainly recommended as a follow-up, unless agreed otherwise, or can be a budget first appointment)
I can also offer an express kinesiology service, particularly for anyone who wants kinesiology on a budget, for those who do not have complex or chronic health issues that may need investigation, and often for those needing a follow up appointment. These sessions will be approx. 1 hour. Basically, this shorter time often doesn’t allow me the time to delve deeper into your problems, and the express MOT sessions are therefore more of a ‘less talking more testing’ approach as I will usually just have time to get on with the testing and tell you what is needed with a brief explanation. I will investigate conditions, medications etc between visits if you opt for one of the full consultations, whereas in the express sessions I will only deal with anything that is presented to me at the time. You will only be required to fill in a basic information sheet and disclaimer if you opt for the Express MOT session, and it may well be that I recommend you return for a full session depending on what I find.
PRESCRIBING SUPPLEMENTS, REMEDIES & HERBS
My approach is to use as little supplements and herbs as possible so as not to overburden the body. However, please expect to purchase or order a few supplements or herbs based upon what I find at your first appointment. I generally test the supplements from the cheapest option first to keep any additional costs down. If a homeopathic remedy is needed and it is one I have, I do not usually charge for this. Most of the products I recommend will be available in Shop Holistic (downstairs), and I offer 10% off purchases at the shop, more on some products, and these can usually be purchased at the time. For more specialist supplements I use Epigenetics International and Nutri Advanced, these are generally practitioner-prescription only. Rest assured, I see supplements as a means to assist your body to help itself and you will only be taking them as a temporary measure!
HOW MANY APPOINTMENTS WILL I NEED?
It may be that you only need the initial appointments and a few follow-ups depending on what we find. Often diet and lifestyle changes, sometimes along with a few carefully selected supplements, may need to be implemented before further investigation, as so many symptoms and conditions are simply caused by nutritional imbalance.
Oftentimes, I see clients for a follow-up around 2-4 weeks after their first kinesiology session depending on the plan, and thereafter for checks every few months or so. I always muscle test on the optimum time for you to come back for a follow-up, but I am happy to see you as often or as little as you wish. Sometimes clients will come for a Reiki or Reflexology session in between visits if they are a couple of months apart.
I will often teach you to use some simple techniques that are relevant to you and will help you to help yourself, and this can be very empowering. My aim is to help you find balance as quickly, efficiently and effectively as possible so you can start to live your life to the fullest, and my reputation is built upon this approach! It is not my intention for you to keep on visiting me in the long term. I want to help you to feel better as quickly as possible by seeking the actual cause of your problems, and hopefully empower you to not have to be reliant on regularly seeing therapists, maybe just now and again for an MOT!
Although I can offer many therapies, services and products myself, if at any time I feel it will be more beneficial for you to see someone who is more of a specialist in a particular field, I may suggest a referral. I have many contacts of excellent holistic therapists who I have personally had treatments from. I would be happy to connect with them and brief them on my work with you, although if you would like me to write a more formal report, I may need to charge a nominal amount for any additional time to do this.
IS THIS RIGHT FOR ME?
I mainly see people who are either:
1. Having persistent health problems they cannot get to the bottom of,
2. Have a diagnosed condition that they would like complimentary/alternative help for, or
3. Are on medications that they have already decided they want to reduce, and are seeking a natural compliment or alternative.*
*please note I am unable to tell you to come off prescribed medications. If you wish to stop medications you need to have already decided this for yourself and discussed it with your prescribing health care professional (who may or may not be supportive!)
I mention above about working together. I can guide and advise, and perform any energetic or physical corrections required. But it takes commitment, effort and discipline from you to follow it through! I can help to get through emotional issues that may be holding you back, but ultimately you will be your own healer!
I am confident I can help you if:
– you are committed to making any necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle
– you actually want to become well and happy and are ready to let go of your suffering (this is a thought-provoking question, as silly as it sounds! Many people in my experience may actually have a need, comfort or purpose for their illness or condition in their lives at that time, which may hinder any improvement).
I will find it difficult to help you if:
– you are simply looking for another person to give your power to! While I am happy to offer support and guidance, you also need to help yourself.
– you are expecting a quick fix like you get with a pharmaceutical approach. Some methods take time to manifest and many supplements or remedies need to be taken regularly for maximum benefit.
HOW CAN IT HELP ME?

- chronic asthma
- ulcerative colitis
- multiple food allergies
- anxiety / fear
- various cancers (I am happy to work with you if you have cancer to support your body’s immunity, recovery and healing, I am not able to, or claim to, treat cancer)

- magnesium deficiency
- high blood pressure and stroke risk
- diabetes type 2
- chronic fatigue syndrome
- hay fever
- skin conditions
- adrenal fatigue
- acid reflux
- detox after amalgam (silver) filling removal

- high cholesterol
- drug addiction / giving up smoking
- emotional trauma
- menopause / oestrogen imbalance
- low immunity
- Medical ‘mysteries’ (ie. illnesses/symptoms that have been unable to be officially diagnosed – ‘tired all the time’, ‘all tests fine, they can’t find anything wrong’, etc)
