About Tanya


I had my first craniosacral therpy session in my twenties, the following 10 sessions brought me back to 'me'. I was fascinated how simple respectful holds could recalibrate me so profoundly and was soon training to be a practitioner.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Practitioner Trainings:

  • Living Anatomy with Steve Haines and Ged Sumner at the Craniosacral Educational Trust, CTET 2005

  • a 2 year diploma in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy at the Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust, CTET 2007

  • various short courses including facial dynamics, lower back pain and mother and baby clinics.

Yoga Therapist

Before I specialised in craniosacral, I was a yoga teacher and yoga therapist. My focus was on yin yoga, pre/post natal and digestive health.

I devised workshops that combined craniosacral and yoga therapy techniques to support digestive health called The Belly Love Method


I am also a painter and you can see my paintings when you come for sessions. They rotate whilst they are out at an exhibition or have been sold. 

Presently there is an abstract above the sofa that gets children talking!

What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?

As a biodynamic craniosacral therapist, my main focus is to relate to the health that is present in your system. The aim is to support a ‘holistic shift’, a healing state where the body priorities what needs to be addressed. You may have come because of a pain in your shoulder, but after lying down on the treatment table, the priority may be somewhere else. For example, a holding pattern of tension in your upper back may resolve itself first. This is not always what is called a referred pain, but the body’s intelligence of it’s organising forces, both physical and emotional.

Tides and Primary Respiration

There are certain tide like qualities we look for. Biodynamic therapist relate to a phenomenon called the Long Tide, a slow wave of energy that moves slowly through our systems and brings about a deeper sense of restorative healing. We also check how your energy levels present, whether your system needs help to restore levels strong enough to heal itself. This is called relating to Primary Respiration, (not to do with lung breathing, more the expression of life force).

What does biodynamic mean?

The term biodynamic in craniosacral therapy refers to the body’s own intelligence and ability to reorganise to a more optimal alignment to health.  

Practitioners have the letters BCST after our names to distinguish their biodynamic style of training in craniosacral therapy. There are very few holds expected in a biodynamic session and hardly any or no manipulation.
