Complete Balance Holistic Therapies

My qualifications, skills and experience as a therapist

I was recently asked about my qualifications as a therapist and I thought it would be a good idea to write a short piece about these and highlight some of my experience. I dont usually blow my own trumpet but feel that explaining my qualifications might highlight how committed I am to my field.

I qualified as a Bowen therapist around 8 years ago and you can find more about me on my website www.complete-balance.co.uk. If you are reading this piece you are probably already on my website! You can also find me listed on the UK Bowen Association websites register of therapists on www.bowen-technique.co.uk
I am a full member of this Association in the UK and the Bowen Association in Australia. This entitles me to use the letters BTAA and BAUK.

In 2003, I qualified in Health Kinesiology and am still a practicing Kinesiologist. As part of that course, I undertook training in Nutrition, Basic Counselling and a fairly full on Holistic Body course covering – Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology from the School of Craniosacral studies in Reading. I also qualified in Touch for Health which is another form of Kinesiology. As part of my Kinesiology practice I constantly read and learn about many aspects of holistic health some of these include; Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Homeopathy, Flower Essences, and Energy Medicine.

I am required as a therapist to undertake 16 hours CPD per year. In truth I probably undertake around 160 CPD hours per year in the reading, webinars and other activities I undertake to keep myself up to date with developments in my field.

I sit on the Bowen Associations committee in the UK advising and undertaking marketing activities for them on a voluntary basis. Health is my passion and I am committed to furthering Bowen as therapy as much as possible.

Finally, I hold a BSc Hons is in Business management and a Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing and am also a Chartered Marketer. I mention these qualifications as I believe this adds credibility as it shows my highest level qualifications.
