What is Eurythmy Therapy?
Eurythmy therapy is a gentle exercise method that invigorates the body's life force and stimulates self-healing capabilities. Internal movements and rhythms such as breathing and pulse are turned into full body exercises.
Speech sounds transformed into movements illustrate how our speech is symbolic of our core individuality.
The effects of Eurythmy therapy exercises are that body, mind and soul are brought back into balance.
Physically, we feel more at home in our body.
Emotionally, we are left feeling grounded, centred and in touch with our true self.
Eurythmy was originated at the beginning of the 20th century in central Europe by the philosopher and social reformer Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) and is being practised and researched with increasing success for over 100 years.

My Credentials and Experiences
I am a fully qualified and experienced Eurythmy therapist.
I received my Bachelor's degree in 2000 from the Academy for Eurythmy in The Hague, The Netherlands and qualified as a Eurythmy therapist in 2010 with a diploma from the Goetheanum, Dornach, in Switzerland.
I acquired a Master's degree for research in Eurythmy therapy in 2016 from the Alanus University in Alfter, Germany.
Since 2012 I have been working as the resident Eurythmy therapist at
Helios Medical Centre in Bristol and have extensive experience treating a
wide range of physical and psychological health issues.
How I Work
My practice room is in Helios Medical Centre in North West Bristol. The room looks out at the centre's large garden with mature trees, accessible to clients to wander in and refresh soul and spirit in its gentle surroundings.
I assess my clients in a holistic manner and treat them as a whole human being. In the initial conversation I try to understand how current life might be contributing to their illness or pain. My sessions provide a tranquil, healing space to enable clients to let go of everyday life and focus on connecting with their true self.
After the session a resting corner provides space for quiet reflection on the experiences the session have brought up.
