Additional Needs.


I have been working as a relaxation Therapist for the last twenty years for the NHS and social services and in schools and colleges. I have spent these years specialising in learning disabilities and children and adults with additional needs. As a result I have formulated and been running relaxation sessions for children and adults.

With 25 years experience in specialist education I can help and advise you with early years play and development in a fun educational and interactive way.

I can help children and adults to recognise when sensory issues and anxiety are becoming a distraction and causing discomfort. I can help people with additional needs to learn coping strategies. Enabling them to reduce the severity of their sensory over load.

A lot of children I have worked with have had a great deal of benefit from deep pressure and story massage.
