I’m Debbie, a qualified Pilates instructor, massage therapist, Reflexologist and baby class instructor based in Oxted and Limpsfield, Surrey.
I aim to create the balance in life that so often we find difficult to reach on our own.
I'm passionate about helping clients improve their health and well-being. With the daily tensions and stresses of life, I believe we should set time aside specifically for relaxation and to allow the body and mind to rebalance.
After a shoulder injury in 2006 and a busy working life as an Assistant Headteacher, I trained as a complementary therapist. Since then, I have developed my knowledge and learnt valuable techniques to allow the body to restore itself to normal function after injury, a build-up of stress or tension or from changes during pregnancy or in the postnatal period.
I attended baby massage and baby yoga classes after I had my first son, and I found the connection these classes gave me with my child remarkable. I set up my classes to help others establish a bond with their babies (and meet other parents afterwards over tea and biscuits!)
When I had my third son, I visited a women’s health physiotherapist and was diagnosed with diastasis recti. I was encouraged to try Pilates to build my core strength. The changes were enough to convince me of the benefits of Pilates, and I trained as an instructor. Pilates has enriched my life, and I love sharing the techniques I have learned.
I regularly attend specialist courses to further my knowledge, and I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists (AOR), fully insured and CRB checked.
Whether you’re looking to unwind or you need help with pain or discomfort, I can help you. Each appointment and individual Pilates session is tailored to you and your needs.
With Bodyscape Therapies (formerly known as Baby, Body and Sole), I’m confident you can rebalance and restore.
