I first arrived at Biodynamics when training as a dancer. I was suffering from an injury to my lower back and, not only was I amazed by how my pain was transformed after treatment, but I also felt uniquely different, as though something deeper had changed. I always felt that the work was addressing much more than the symptoms I went in for.
Years later, I qualified as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist from the Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust in London, where I am now supporting students as an assistant tutor. I hold a Diploma in ‘Living Anatomy’, fully accredited by the Association of Physical and Natural Therapists (APNT) and a First Aid at Work certificate.
Additional to my craniosacral practice, I gained MA in Dance Performance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance in 2009 and continue to work professionally in the field of dance and choreography. My training and experience in movement underpins my understanding of the body in all its richness and wisdom. These enquiries inform my approach as a hands-on therapist.
I engage in Continued Professional Development to enrich and deepen my practice and I receive regular supervision, which supports me to support my clients. I am also a registered member of the Craniosacral Therapy Association and fully adhere to their Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
I am currently studying Tai Chi (Taiji Quan) and Chi Gong with teacher Samuel Hallett in my home town, Bristol.
"Tara offers a space of unconditional presence and support, her insightful questions and gentle encouragement allowed my system to feel safe and supported to explore and integrate deep patterns of tension. I felt glowing along with a deeper knowing following the session and would absolutely recommend to all."
Fantastic practitioner, brilliant therapy, life changing. Highly recommend Tara...
...Tara's work has not only had a life changing effect and vastly improved my quality of life, it has completely changed my attitude to this therapy, the holistic view of the health of the human body and the relationships between different areas of it.
Tara is incredibly gentle, patient, professional and went to great lengths to make me feel safe and secure in the environment. Her work is nothing short of magic, and were I remaining in the UK, I would certainly continue the therapy with her.
Smiley face. Thumbs up. Top Banana."

"I was suffering from really bad anxiety and in my session with Tara my body felt like it fully relaxed for the first time in months. I came out feeling amazing and since then my anxiety has been easier to control."
"Tara is a very kind, professional and intuitive practitioner. She made me feel completely safe and supported and talked me through any concerns l had. I got to explore a deeper level within myself and it really helped relieve tension in certain parts of my body. Tara is a natural healer and also a genuinely lovely person to be around, l would definitely recommend her to anyone who is interested in Cranio Sacral Therapy and experiencing a deep level of clarity, freedom and connection within yourself."
"Beyond personal attention, Tara creates a space that enables a deep experience. Her feedback is always resonant and reassuring. I come away from sessions feeling rested and revitalised in the days after."
"Incredible experience and Tara is a very gentle and thorough practitioner. I will be going back!"
