Anxiety and Panic Attacks; Depression; Abuse and Trauma experienced in childhood and / or adulthood; Relationship and Intimacy difficulties; Loss and Bereavement; Identity issues – who am I?; Loss of Meaning and Purpose in life; Self-confidence and Self-esteem issues; Stress.
Anne aims to provide a supportive and confidential space in which a trusting relationship can develop and explore the issues, discover the person’s own inner resources and new ways of being. It is widely recognised that the therapeutic relationship is important in facilitating the process of healing and growth.
She uses a relational and integrative approach which incorporates several psychological theories including Psychodynamic Theory, Psychosynthesis and Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT).
Psychodynamic Theory is concerned with issues that have developed in childhood and still affect us today.
Psychosynthesis considers the whole person: body, feelings, mind, sexuality and spirituality. It is concerned with our relationship to ourselves and others, periods of transition in our lives, personal goals and aspirations.
AIT is a gentle, wholistic and effective trauma treatment or energy treatment which promotes psychological, physical and spiritual healing. It treats not just the symptoms but the originating causes of present day difficulties (www.ait-uk-europe.com).
Anne studied Psychology at degree level and applied it to my work as a Social Worker for many years prior to training as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist. She attained her Diploma in Counselling from the Institute of Psychosynthesis in 2005 and her MA in Psychotherapy from the Psychosynthesis Education Trust, accredited by the University of East London in 2014.Having practiced at Keats since 2002.

Testimonials:5 stars! Knowledgeable and effective Bowen Therapist, who has already made a difference to a longstanding joint hip, knee and ankle pain, it gives me increased flexibility and mobility. I cannot recommend this treatment highly enough for both children and adults. For me it makes a great deal of difference both physically and emotionally. Gareth, my therapist was cheerful, friendly and put me at ease, there is also a good ambience at the clinic too. Gareth was very attentive, and compassionate for someone elderly and in a lot of pain. He was happy to give informative explanations and certainly understood his subject thoroughly. I have tried most therapies and came across Bowen therapy accidently following a traffic accident which left me with whip lash. It only took one treatment to rectify this problem and consequently I always return for treatment if another problem arises through sporting activities. The Bowen treatment through the hands of Gareth has brought relief beyond measure. Gareth also suggested simple techniques to do at home for maintenance which made it super easy to aid recovery and I was actively making myself recover instead of depending on Gareth, this he does encourage. I have also taken the flower remedies from Gareth which certainly help me emotionally when I have become stuck as they seem to help me move forward, and have attended the sound medicine which I find fascinating and healing.Heather ThroupGreat knowledge base and extremely professional treatment.KarenI have known Gareth for quite a few years now and I've had the pleasure of working with him. I find him professionally competent and down to earth and a no beating round the Bush attitude. I'm sure all those he treats will be very happy at the outcome. Signed. Lez Fuller

- Jazmin YanezDeep Tissue MassageJazmin YanezDeep Tissue Massage
Jazmin is a qualified massage therapist and member of MTI (Massage Training Institute). She first became interested in massage when she discovered its wide ranging benefits after sustaining an injury as a recreational runner while training for a half marathon. Ever since, her interest in pain relief and relaxation has grown steadily. Currently training on sports massage and remedial soft tissue therapy, Jazmin has an integrative approach mixing different techniques for maximum effect to address clients needs.
The therapeutic benefits of massage have been used for centuries to help address imbalances in the body and support wellbeing. It can help to relax the muscles, release tension and re set the mind.
Deep tissue massage
Working on deeper muscle layers can help release patterns of tension. Deep tissue massage helps to loosen up the tissue relieving aches and pains and encouraging deep relaxation. People often complain of tender spots or ‘knots’ which can be targeted with deep tissue techniques.
Myofascial release can help release restrictions within the connective tissue (or fascia), thus enabling stuck, stiffened and dehydrated areas to become soft and flexible again. It can help to increase mobilisation and decrease stiffness that may result from chronic conditions or injury.
It entails a variety of techniques to soothe muscles and promote relaxation. With gentle and long strokes in the direction of the heart, holistic massage stimulates circulation and flush of metabolic waste. It provides a general sense of wellbeing and can help relieve stress and fatigue. For information on payments please visit Fees page.
