About Lina


I support people to achieve optimum health and well-being. 

I see clients in-person for Bowen Therapy and Pregnancy & Childbirth Services in Shoreham-by-Sea (near Brighton), West Sussex. I also work with clients via video call. 

I have over 30 years experience.


I've been helping people for decades as a Holistic Therapist, Childbirth Educator, Birth Attendant (Doula), Registered Midwife and Bowen Technique Therapist.

For many years I have taught relaxation classes, including meditation and mindfulness. My relaxation audios have been used by hundreds of people, to bring peace and wellbeing to their lives.

I co-facilitate professional development training for Bowen Therapists to work with mothers and babies. These trainings have been held around Europe and Australia.
