Helen Mary Perkins is a gifted complementary therapist with in-depth knowledge and understanding of both Bowen therapy and reflexology. Having qualified with Ossie and Elaine Rentsch while living in Australia, she has been a Bowen practitioner since 1994 and a Bowtech instructor since 2013.
She is proud to have been recognised as Best Bowen Therapy Training Provider in the UK, one of two awards from luxury lifestyle magazine LUX International. In addition to teaching the Bowen Technique, Helen has developed her own accredited training course for Bowen therapists wishing to work in the field of palliative care as well as an Introduction to Bowen Therapy which is open to other professionals and laymen.
Helen is well-travelled and versed in many ancient traditions and customs in which today’s complementary therapies have their roots. In the Nineties she enjoyed a rewarding period working within the Royal Flying Doctor Service in Queensland, Australia where she absorbed aspects of the indigenous culture that subsequently informed her own practice. This led indirectly to Helen developing her own method of intuition and sound reflexology called Reflex Resonance Technique™ that she now teaches to others.
Other career highlights include working with a regional team at Sue Ryder Care to set up a complementary therapy service for this renowned hospice movement in their Thorpe Hall, Peterborough day centre. This led to her becoming a CPD tutor for both nurses and therapists since when she has become an accredited tutor with several professional organisations including Complementary Therapists Association, Federation of Holistic Therapists, Association of Reflexologists and Reflexology Association of Australia.
For three years she was a director with the UK Association of Reflexologists while developing her own practice. Today she splits her time between managing this very successful business combined with teaching and speaking engagements both in the UK and overseas. A qualified and experienced tutor she also offers her own unique course called Your Intuitive Self.
Invited to train as a Bowtech Instructor by Elaine and Ossie, she is proud to be one of only 100 registered instructors in the world. She has long been a pro-active advocate for this little-known but highly-effective therapy and feels privileged to be in a position where she can inspire and teach the next generation of Bowen therapists.
Away from work Helen indulges her artistic side by creating pictures in mixed media in the form of collages and singing with a local world music choir.
