Alex is a State Registered and Chartered Physiotherapist who graduated with a BHSc Honours Degree in Physiotherapy in 1996. She worked in various hospital and community settings for the National Health Service (NHS), and also worked for the Thistle Foundation – which is an Edinburgh-based charity providing housing and support services for wheelchair users and their families. In 2002, she took the plunge and started her own successful private practice.
Alex realised early on in her career that working with the whole person was the crucial element for helping her clients recover from their complex health problems. She began studying Upledger Cranio-Sacral Therapy in 1999. After completing their curriculum, she moved on to complete the Barral Institute programmes for Visceral, Neural, Gynaecological, Vascular Manipulations, as well as the Manual Articular Approach. Alex is also a trained Doula and has spent time assisting pregnant women in labour and post-partum.
In 2016, having witnessed a client achieve spectacular improvements following KCR and CTR treatments, she decided that she had to learn more about these powerful modalities. She completed all but one of her courses directly from Hugh and has now gone on to train and become a certified KCR Instructor. Her passion about KCR shows in her delivery of the courses, and her extensive experience and background knowledge is a tremendous asset to our learning environment.
