My path as a therapist started in 1983 after qualifying as a yoga teacher and continued regular teaching until 2018. I went to India in 1983 for a month of intensive training at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram in Kerala, India. I stayed there to gain teaching experience for a while. I travelled in India for 5 months. I found the Indian science of life, and the Hindu philosophy very interesting, and helpful.

In 1982 I became interested in Shiatsu, and started training at the British School of Shiatsu for 3 years from 1986 – 1989, and in 1990 qualified as a teacher.


In 1993 I moved back to Dorset to set up as a full time therapist. I completed my Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming training in 2003.


I enjoy walking, especially on the Purbecks, or anywhere in the countryside or beach and all types of music and, socialising.

I believe it is important to take care of ourselves, in the most natural way possible.

It is this that can be difficult for some people and where I draw upon the skills I have to create that life balance - to be healthy and happy.

Hello Josie,

It’s a ‘thank you’ from me, for all the help and support you have given over the past 4 months, without which, I would not have become a changed person, not only regarding my weight, but my whole outlook on life. You have given me so much confidence in myself…

‘Just done my first ever Yoga class with Josie ! Came away on an absolute high - it was fab ! Josie was very patient with me :o) and I am looking forward to my next class. I think this is going to make a huge difference to my fitness and flexibility!’
