Harriet offers body awareness classes twice a week at the Elysia Centre. During these classes we explore movement patterns that work directly with the nervous system to re-pattern persistent tension is the body, bringing freedom and ease in the way we move. Classes are low impact and accessible to all levels.
Harriet also offers 1-2-1 appointments/courses where she will design a programme unique to your body, experience and aims. She works with movement and cellular touch to help re-organise unhelpful patterns in the body, increasing awareness in the body and encouraging a holistic connection to self and spirit.
I am a fully trained and insured massage practitioner with over 10 years of experience and a specialism in Kahuna bodywork / Lomi Lomi massage. My aim is to reconnect you with your body and to teach you the power of listening. I invite you to realise a new form of perception, transforming the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
When we integrate fully and consciously with our bodies we function effectively, we make grounded decisions, we become more in tune with our emotions, thoughts and reactions and we can truly tap into our self healing capacity. We learn to listen to the wisdom of the body, removing our limitations and restoring and regulating vitality. I like to describe the process as a journey from your head to your heart.

Meta Health Master Practitioner – Meta Kinetics Practitioner – EFT Practitioner
My journey into exploring physical, mental and emotional patterns of health,began with a diagnosis at 18 with an autoimmune disease. Subsequent training and employment in the NHS in Radiotherapy(AP),Chronic Disease and as a Self Management Co-ordinator, together with my own personal journey created a deeper awareness, empathy and transparency of what individuals may experience with their physical and emotional health. This personal and professional experience has enabled me to transition to my own practice, so I can observe and facilitate working with individuals as a ‘‘whole being’ rather than just as the symptoms they are experiencing.
Using a persons medical diagnosis/symptoms, I use a systemic approach termed Meta Health® analysis, to explore through specific questioning the plausible relationships between adverse events/stress conflicts, brain relays,physical symptoms, belief structures, emotions, feelings and patterns of behaviour to determine why the body maybe experiencing symptoms.

Kinesiology & brief, solution-focused therapy to resolve emotional problems & achieve goals
Author of The Therapist Within You (2009) and Relearning Experience (in preparation), and creator of Relearning Experience Process (REP), I help people to overcome emotional issues (such as PTSD, anxiety, emotional and physical pain, allergies, stress, unresolved anger or guilt, addiction) and achieve specific goals (such as drug-free natural childbirth, improved work or sport performance, motivation and social confidence).
We (the client and I) will work by first delineating and articulating the problem and desired goal. Then we’ll find out when and how in your history the problem was created. We will resolve the problem there at its origins. Finally, we will test that the problem has been resolved and that the goal is now achievable.
My approach has been developed over many years of training, practice, study and reflection, and is economical, rigorous and highly effective.
