Having grown up within an army family and moved between West Africa, Germany & the UK as a child, Joanna continued her “wanderlust” into adulthood with separate stints in New Orleans, Louisiana USA, for four years in the 1970’s, and two years, 1998-2000, respectively, and South Africa in the 1970’s-1980’s, for about ten years, returning in 1986 to London. In between she visited Italy, Greece, Switzerland, Mexico, Jamaica, Brazil, Zimbabwe, Botswana and finally Kerala in India. Throughout these journeys she came across a variety of healing methods, which she believes started to coalesce when she left London and the corporate world, where she had been working, and came back down to the West Country (having been born in Devon) to start retraining in alternative therapy.
Her initial training was in the Bowen Technique,adding massage, in various forms, as well as naturopathy, Reiki, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Spinal Alignment. In 2013, after four years of training, she also became a registered Homeopath.
Joanna has deliberately developed an integrated practice, offering the choice of Homeopathy, Bodywork and energy work, individually or in support of each other.
She feels that the real joy of natural therapies is that they interlink and lead one forward constantly into new areas and possibilities. She is a firm believer of integrated medicine as she feels that every individual deserves the best of the traditional and the new, and indeed the discovered learning that breaks upon our consciousness each year.
