I initially trained in massage and reflexology at New College Nottingham before continuing my studies in Cornwall, qualifying in other therapies including Reiki, Indian head massage, hot stone massage, rejuvenating facial massage and deep tissue massage. I have been working as a complementary therapist since 2007.
My passion is reflexology and I find it amazing that the treatment can help to balance and heal the body so effectively. I found myself receiving frequent enquiries from clients seeking reflexology to aid fertility, thus I consequently decided to undergo extensive training in reproductive reflexology (Reproflexology™) to enable me to work confidently with couples trying to conceive naturally or through assisted conception. I am the only therapist in Cornwall using these techniques and have helped many clients to become parents. I have also gained qualifications in pregnancy massage and maternity reflexology, enabling me to help clients through the stages of pre-conception, pregnancy and beyond.
I look forward to supporting you on your journey.
My name is Karley Evans and I am a qualified Level 3 VTCT sports massage therapist. I have 3 years’ experience as a self-employed therapist, with also two additional years working alongside local football clubs.
I also offer holistic massage. This softer touch massage treats the mind, body and spirit, encouraging the mind to slow down and muscles to relax, helping the body to balance and rejuvenate.
I have always found the concept of being able to heal and treat the human body through the technique of massage interesting. In my years of experience, I have learnt to adapt my treatments to the need of the individual, whether it be rehabilitation work, event work or general maintenance.
My training includes a Diploma in Life Coaching from the Association of Medicine, certificates in Effective Brief Psychotherapy, Guided Imagery and Visualisation for Therapeutic Change and How to Lift Depression from the Human Givens College, Emotional Intelligence and NLP techniques.
I grew up in Stoke on Trent in the West Midlands and came from quite a scientific logical upbringing with no awareness of alternative therapies at all. I was maybe slightly sceptical. That all changed one day when I was in my early twenties and having a tough time. I wondered into a centre called ‘Namaste’ in Camberwell, South London. I was greeted by a lovely lady called Tiffany. Something about her put me at ease and straight away my life story kind of came out! She offered me Reiki – hands on healing. I had no idea what this was but said yes!
The very first time Tiffany started giving me Reiki, I had a stunning vision of pure gold shimmering light coming from her palm chakras entering my aura. Wow! In that moment my brain felt like I was Alice in Wonderland, tumbling down the rabbit hole and I couldn’t believe what I was experiencing. This started me on a journey into self-healing and exploring the spiritual world. I received many Reiki healings.
I then travelled around Thailand, spending time practising meditation and being in wonderful temples. On my travels around the globe I was honoured to spend time with gurus like Amma and Moji. But in my early twenties I still didn’t quite understand the significant of what had happened!
I returned to London and trained with Tiffany in Reiki levels 1,2 and 3 (master training). Each was a huge initiation mainly focusing first on my own self-healing.
I have also had many years working in the mental health field, supporting complex clients with severe mental health, drug and alcohol issues. I witnessed human trauma and the complexities we can create in our lives when things are stuck. This has given me great understanding and experience to further help clients in my Reiki healing.
I feel very blessed to have trained in Reiki and to now offer this profound, gentle and transformative healing to clients. I am particularly drawn to help people with ME /Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as I am in recovery from this myself. Reiki is also a great therapy if you are suffering with IBS, insomnia, physical pain, depression, anxiety, low energy or low self love. It is also highly beneficial in recovery post-surgery or during/after chemotherapy.
I am passionate about helping you to be the best version of you.
Hi, my name is Angie May and I’m a holistic and beauty therapist, qualified in level 3 beauty therapy. Although I love the beauty side, my passion has always been the holistic, healing side of the industry, with the aim to help others to feel good about themselves.
I first attended an evening course in massage therapy in 2002, working around my office job at the time. I loved it so much I decided to take it up as a career.
I started to work at a salon while I studied beauty therapy. I continued to add to my studies, working around my children and clients, qualifying in reflexology, Indian head massage and further massage techniques. As a therapist, you are always learning and expanding your knowledge. It fascinates me!
I truly believe that when physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels are disturbed by life events and traumatic experiences, a state of imbalance manifests in us. Stress has so much to answer for! My aim is for the client to reach inner peace, harmony and balance. Soothing those aches and pains away.
I use Luxury Neal’s Yard products in most of my treatments including a wonderfully, relaxing holistic facial, with products chosen to suit the client’s skin type, helping you to rest, restore and rejuvenate.
At Helston Holistic Therapies, I offer a range of massage therapies, reflexology and holistic facials. All treatments are bespoke and tailored to individual needs within a relaxing, warm and calming environment.
In 2014, I completed my Health Science Degree, majoring in Naturopathy (BHSc Nat.) in Sydney Australia. I then moved to Cornwall with my husband and started my practice, Terranova Wellness. I couldn’t be happier living in such a beautiful part of the world, with miles of un-spoilt coastline and forests buzzing with wildlife at my door step. To be amongst nature is a powerful healing tool and vital for optimal health and vitality.
I treat a wide range of ailments. However, I have a special interest in the endocrine system (including adrenal and chronic fatigue), the immune system (including autoimmune and allergies) the digestive system, mental health and reproductive health.

The Thrive Programme
Hi – my name is Ali Scobbie, let me introduce myself and tell you a bit about why I teach The Thrive Programme and how it has changed my own life for the better.
I trained in both psychotherapy and The Thrive Programme back in 2009 following many years of working in the pharmaceutical industry and always being interested in the field of psychology. I wanted a more rewarding and worthwhile career that gave something back to others. I was already involved when the Thrive Programme was first developed and since then I have seen it evolve and been part of that amazing journey to the current and very successful programme.
The Thrive Programme has enabled me to help hundreds of men, woman and children to thrive and overcome their problems. Seeing people drastically change their lives for the better, when they have sometimes suffered their entire life with challenging or debilitating problems, is extremely rewarding and something that I am very passionate about.
I am very friendly, open, approachable and easy to talk to and work in a relaxed manner where you will feel comfortable and able to discuss your problems without any fear of being judged.
I am a registered, licensed Thrive Consultant and I am bound by the ATPC Code of Conduct and Ethics and am constantly undergoing training to ensure my knowledge is up to date with modern studies and new evidence always being introduced.
I found the Alexander Technique by chance after many years of dealing with a painful back condition which often prevented me doing things I wanted to do and sometimes got me down. After a few lessons I was like a previously shrivelled plant which has been given a bit of water and attention...
I blossomed. I found that natural 'up' which most of us were born with. As I continued to learn and practice the Alexander Technique, I began to walk with a new spring in my step and pain was eventually replaced by energy and joy.
The great thing about the Technique is that once you have learned it, you can always give yourself 'a bit of water and attention' by choosing to use the Technique in your daily life.
