About Yvonne & embodied health

I am based at Yanley Court, Yanley Lane, Long Ashton, BS41 9LB.  I moved my practice to this beautiful converted barn in 2002.  I started my complementary therapy practice in 1999. Over the years I have been drawn to therapies that demonstrate an embodied approach to health.  Our bodies provide an honest picture of both our physical and mental health from which we can address imbalances caused by lifestyle, illness, trauma or life’s transitions such as pregnancy, retirement or changes in circumstance.

I am interested in providing a space to work holistically to reduce restriction in the body and mind.  Each approach aims to balance and recentre the whole person, reducing discomfort or anxiety; and give insight to discover wholeness, strength and flexibility.

Whether you want to address long-standing or recent issues, we can work together to find support and space, choosing the approach you most enjoy and value.
