Combined Therapies

Associate Practitioners

Working in the fields of complementary health has brought Lucinda into contact with many practitioners of alternative therapies. Other therapists include Kate Weeks (Bowen), Ali Grove (Shiatsu), Les Greve (Health and Personal Development Therapy) and Eleanor Copp (Hypnotherapy Bowen and Trauma) . Sessions with these therapists can be worked in with De-Stressage to enhance the experience.

Kate Weeks

Kate WeeksI am a fully qualified Bowen therapist, who has been in practice for six years. I am a member of the Bowen Therapists European Register, the Federation of Holistic Therapists and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.

I’d like to tell you briefly about why I decided to train as a Bowen therapist and my own personal Bowen experiences…

My first introduction to Bowen was when my horse, Ollie, was a case study for a friend training in equine Bowen. I was so impressed with the effect the treatment had on him that I asked the therapist to treat my daughter, who at the time was 8 and had been diagnosed with a mild scoliosis (curvature of the spine).  After four Bowen treatments the spine was x-rayed again and was now perfectly straight. I am now sure the scoliosis was caused by imbalance and tightness in the muscular structure that supports the spine. This was simply and effectively addressed by Bowen.

I was also treated for neck and back problems. During my first Bowen treatment I could feel all sorts of releases happening and over the course of three treatments my neck and back pain was addressed.

After more research, I realised that this was the career change I had been looking for. I then began my training, through ECBS – Europes leading training college for Bowen. I have also completed a level three diploma in Anatomy and Physiology, and study intergrated anatomy at a higher level. I attend regular training days and workshops which ensures that I remain up to date and accurate with my work. I am, of course, fully insured.


Ali Grove    

 Ali Grove  I am very pleased to be able to offer you shiatsu as part of your De-Stressage journey.

Shiatsu is like acupuncture without the needles as it is based on meridians and points.

As a Shiatsu practitioner I work on the principle of unblocking ki (energy) as it flows along defined pathways of the body.

It is a healing art that has been around for thousands of years and it is beneficial for the general well-being. It is wonderfully relaxing and can help in a wide range of conditions to specific ailments, for example; stress, muscle pain, anxiety, back problems, dietary or hormonal problems, pain relief and many more.

During your Shiatsu I will use gentle stretches, massage and gentle manipulation, pressure from my thumbs, fingers, maybe elbows and feet to gently interact with your energy to relieve tension, harmonise and balance your body leaving you with a feeling of well-being and relaxation.

I am passionate about my work. The beneficial outcomes experienced by former recipients I have had the privilege to help has been truly wonderful and I look forward to trying to help you.

Les Greve 

Les Greve  For more than 20 years I have researched and studied how to help people recover naturally from physical or emotional ill health by pinpointing what is responsible for their condition. I use visualisation and focused energy projection techniques to help reduce the debilitating effects of illness and restore good health.

Although I see my work as a gift it has taken me over twenty years to develop and fine-tune my therapeutic capabilities. I have studied volumes of books, attended numerous seminars, talks and workshops. I investigated psychology, child parent relationship, mind energy concepts, psychic healing principles, psychosomatic illness and metaphysics. I practised and perfected my craft at local spiritual churches, workshops, events, family and friends and now with clients from all over the world.

Since 1996 I have explored the relationship between illness and its connection to a subconscious internalised fear. We all hold onto a subconscious memory of not being understood or appreciated. Depending how hurt we felt at that time, we may project that memory onto our present day interactions with others. Our levels of self-persecution may make us feel unworthy or expect to be criticised and rejected out of hand. We could also, create the impression that everyone is against us and we become suspicious of their intentions. This self-oppression could cause the body to reflect our suffering by developing a physical or emotional discomfort. The realignment of a person’s association to hidden traumas could modify the original encoding that created their illness.

In 2007 I became a professional Practitioner working on individuals via telephone sessions worldwide. My perspective and understanding of the cause and effect of illness has helped me to develop my own particular brand of ‘Health Therapy’.

I have developed a method of identifying the origination point of the Emotional or Physical illness and visualising the original incident then transforming it in my mind into a happy and guilt free experience.

I studied and perfected the art of focused concentration (Motor Imagery) which is a practice used by athletes and business people when preparing for a winning outcome. I focus my mind on an individual and visualise an outcome that may aid their recovery. If a client has a problem walking I project in my mind a person running, if a client is suffering from loss of confidence I project in my mind a person happy and being applauded by others etc. I have seen miracles with this approach and without making any physical contact.

I do this in half hour sessions over the telephone while you stay safely in your own home or office. If needed I can work through a family member or a friend to help children or those less able to communicate with me.

Because we are all individuals and have our own particular ways, traits and fears not everyone can accept or benefit from my method of treatment. Therefore, in spite of my dedication, time and efforts, I cannot guarantee any form of noticeable improvements to a person’s condition or any service I offer.

Eleanor Copp   

In 1986 I started training as a nurse and qualified as a Midwife in 1993 and am registered with the NMC, the NCH and the Bowen Association.

I have been an Hypnotherapist since 2008 and a Bowen Technique Practitioner since 2013.

I work as a mind/body integrative therapist. This means I am able to support you with emotional and physical symptoms.Hypnotherapy is a useful way to manage stress and anxiety, or indeed any unwanted habit. It is very helpful for overcoming phobia, and for reaching a goal which has previously felt out of reach.

Hypnosis is not to be feared, it is a gentle process of relaxation and visualisation which allows the mind to take on new and beneficial information.

Since 1997 I have worked in Private Practice running workshops , groups and working with individuals and couples. I have taught student Midwives co -run training days for qualified Midwives on self care.

I founded the Taunton birth forum and regularly  give talks and write articles on my understanding and experience of how our birth formed and shaped us.

Having experienced family constellation, psychotherapy, cranio sacral therapy and attended seminars on building and enhancing bonding and attachment my passion is support in this field.

My work is focussed on integrating the mind and body and the relationship between the two, however old we are.
