I qualified as a teacher of adults in 1998 having already been running my own massage school. I now coordinate CTET’s Living Anatomy Course and am a senior tutor on the practitioner training as well as running my own workshops within Still Learning.
I strongly believe in active learning where students are engaged in finding what they need and find learning is much easier when there is laughter and a relaxed atmosphere.
The embryological development of our beginnings is still present in the adult and understanding how the body forms can help elucidate complex relationships within our anatomy so I often teach from this perspective. This is not abstract and can be present under your hands with clients once understood. I bring in clinical relevance whenever possible so students leave courses with skills to take away and use in their hands on work. For me a deep knowledge and embodied sense of the anatomy of the body is fundamental to the practice of craniosacral therapy, your clients body knows that you know, it feels safe and you feel confident about what’s under your hands.
