I am now offering CMA accredited one day advanced Functional diploma courses for those wishing to learn more about this beautiful and deeply beneficial work with people with special  and/or different abilities .

I share further practical therapeutic techniques on the day along with more detailed scientific and neuropsychological research and knowledge. It takes all I share on the first level up several notches to a standard where you develop a greater understanding of how you are working along with science-based knowledge about why exactly it works so very well.

It is a pre-requisite to have completed a two day training course with me prior to this. Cost £120  lunch included.PIMG_8444lease contact me at for further information and bookings.

Please email at info@theraiesforspecialneeds for further details. I can come to schools or private venues wherever there are a number of you. This includes abroad, particularly in response to all the emails I have received from America and specifically in connection with autism.

Dates for courses held on Exmoor in my training and therapy chalet are listed on the website but early booking is essential as more school funded placements are now being booked well in advance . I look forward to meeting you all and sharing with you !

College and school funded placements on courses !

From February 2016 I began taking bookings on my indian head massage for special needs practical diploma courses ( based on my book ) for school and academy funded placements. With 48 hours these teachers and members of staff were taking their training into their respective schools – a dream come true for me as I long to introduce therapies into schools everywhere. With the huge short term and long term benefits that my therapy brings to students , this impacts very positively not just on themselves as people but on the whole classroom and learning environment .


I have also successfully trained parents and carers of children with autism, ADHD and other special needs and within the first day of the course they want to take the therapy into their children’s schools. So many people arrive on the courses with an expectation – but always leave with a journey . I absolutely love my job !!IMG_8555IMG_7885
