Beth qualified as a Dental Surgery Assistant in 1977, working both privately and at local hospitals and worked for 10 years as a Medical Laboratory Scientific Officer in the Pathology Laboratory Department, Cheltenham General Hospital.
In 1992, she qualified as an Aromatherapist, achieving a distinction in an Advanced Anatomy and Physiology Diploma.
During the early 1990’s, Beth also worked part time for a private ambulance company providing First Aid and emergency trauma cover at British Horse Society Horse Trails, attending international three day events.
In 1993, Beth qualified as a Bach Flower Remedy Practitioner and Counsellor, and finds the remedies effective for both people and animals.
After discovering the Bowen Technique in 1995, Beth trained with Julian Baker, director of the European College of Bowen Studies. She quickly found Bowen taking over from Aromatherapy as her main treatment of choice. She says “The Bowen Technique is the most user (and receiver) friendly modality that I have experienced. It can be anything you need it to be; a sports therapy; a functional muscula-skeletal therapy; a hormone/blood pressure balancer; an aid to comfortable respiration; a stress reliever; and energy booster; the possibilities are infinite!”
Several years ago, Beth started to apply some Bowen moves to her own horses with great results.
In 1998, she studied with an Australian, Michael Nixon-Livy the Neurostructural Integration Technique (N.S.T.) training programme, later going on to qualify as an advanced practitioner.
Following many requests for a professional approach to Equine Bowen training, Beth started planning and designing a training programme for Bowen Therapists wishing to take this versatile healing modality to horses. Her aim was to produce skilled, knowledgeable therapists who would work along side other professionals within the equestrian industry. It was vitally important to ensure credibility and respect that this excellent therapy so deserves. See her web site www.equinebowentherapy.com for more details on Equine Bowen Therapy and training courses available with Beth.

As a “lay” practitioner, Beth has 30 years experience of using homoeopathy mainly for First Aid, and nutrition and herbal programmes for her own health benefit. She also practices meditation, yoga and pilates. Beth says “We only get one body this life time – we may as well look after it as well as we can.”
