All about The Therapy Shed and why.

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"

- Hippocrates



After 35 years of passionately helping people eat healthy, nourishing and nutritious food, alongside 20 years of learning how essential oils, plants and herbs help us heal our bodies naturally and organically...

...I decided to combine all of my passions; food, nutrition and what we put in our bodies generally and qualify as a therapist in both talking therapies, like counselling and psychotherapy, CBT and life coaching, massage therapies like traditional Swedish, Hot Stones, Aromatherapy, Mummy and Baby massage, Indian Head massage and cement them all with complementary therapies like, Reflexology, meditation, nutrition and exercise. So now I could offer a complete range of services and be able to treat and properly tackle the overall stresses and strains that our daily lives now impose on us all.

During my study, I realised that our minds are not functioning at their optimum levels if our bodies are not maintained and looked after properly, and vice versa, so I needed to offer a complete range of therapies to help you optimise your mind and maintain a healthy body. So after 2 years of study, courses, training and exams, The Therapy Shed was born.

At The Therapy Shed, I can now offer a wide range of massage therapies, talking therapies and complementary therapies, so that you can start to feel happier and healthier today.
