Testimonials

"I have always been fairly certain that I don't actually have an aura. But it turns out that I do, and a very responsive one at that. By moving her hands close to my head and body, but without actually touching the skin, she was able to induce the beginnings of the sound she was after - a more peaceful sound, like a babbling brook."

SH - Journalist. The Observer 1985

"The biodynamic view of my migraine (for the past 30 years) as "blocked energy" is so true. I now know that I have been blocking myself under the false illusion that my armouring was protecting me from feeling hurt, vulnerable. Because of my therapy I can now accept all of me, my humanness, my sadness, my gladness, my anger, my love, my fear."
