Steph Hodgson

Steph’s background is in Emergency Nursing, where she worked as a Nurse Practitioner and learnt about managing every kind of stress, trauma, illness, and every type of response to these situations. She trained in Craniosacral Therapy after experiencing the work while looking after a friend with cancer, and observing the profound effect it had on the whole family.

She specialises in working with trauma, particularly early trauma, and works with groups, adults, families, babies, during pregnancy, and preconception – helping to prepare clients for the important journey of bringing a child into this world. Meeting each person and their situation with presence and groundedness helps them to settle their nervous systems, and then they can begin to relax and heal in their body and mind.

Steph feels blessed to live in a small community in North Oxfordshire, where they grow their own food on a small-holding next to the canal.

Steve Haines

Steve is a bodyworker and author who is deeply interested in pain, trauma, anxiety and touch. He teaches and travels all over the world with his main projects being in London, Switzerland, Ireland and Scandinavia.

There are two main strands to his teaching: helping therapists developing expertise in touch and presence via Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, and, promoting TRE as a simple, but powerful self-regulation tool.
