Annie Blunt, BA, DHP

Annie's journey as a therapist began with training and experience at Relate, which led to a deeper interest in exploring therapeutic interventions. She went on to study a family therapy course provided by the NHS , which proved to be so rewarding on multiple levels, professional and personal that she went on to train on an NHS course in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. As a teacher and qualified social worker, and these additional qualifications in Psychotherapy,  Annie joined the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) as a tutor and trainer for counsellors. Over time she graduated to providing diploma level courses.

Eventually family life took her to London where she worked for a  relationship agency in 'relationship enhancement'  and later for "Place2Be" as a Hub Manager overseeing Therapy in ten primary schools. Further training in areas such as clinical supervision and trauma therapy led her to her current, part time, role with  the  Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), an organisation that protects children.  She has other work in the psychotherapeutic field, and also enjoy being a mum and grandmother, which is a source of constant fascination.

Annie has wide ranging experience in psychotherapy and counselling with a special interest in Couples Counselling and treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. 

She Writes:

Stress, relationships worries and daily challenges at times are so difficult, but life can be happier and more fulfilling. Would you like to change the way that you feel? Therapy makes change happen.

If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationships problems, childlessness, parenting dilemmas or related issues, come and have a free introductory session. You will have time to talk and explore and to discover if my approach would be right for you.

I can offer effective help for individuals and couples, in a calm, confidential space, where your concerns will be addressed carefully.  My experience as a trained integrative psychotherapist and clinical supervisor is backed up by HCPC accreditation and full insurance, for your peace of mind.

AS well as individual counselling Annie offers the following group therapy sessions:

Available topics are as follows:

  • Relationships and online dating - 5 sessions.
  • Recovery after a relationship breakdown - 10 sessions
  • Being a Parent - 12 sessions

All groups include both structured and unstructured time and provide opportunity for discussion and a social component.

Chloe Tucker

Chloe had her first taste of yoga backpacking across Nepal and India. She went on to explore a variety of yoga styles whilst studying at university, living in Japan and travelling Asia before falling in love with the creativity and organic movement of Vinyasa flow yoga. After starting a regular Vinyasa and Ashtanga practice, Chloe soon discovered the physical and mental benefits of yoga. She believes that yoga teaches us how to live better -becoming attuned to our bodies and emotions can help equip us with tools to cope with the many demands and stresses of modern life.

In January 2019 she returned to India to train in Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow and is now a 200 hours accredited yoga teacher.

Suitable for all abilities, her class finds a balance between the physical and meditative power of yoga. With moving asanas, pranayama and meditation, Chloe's vinyasa flow classes build strength, improve flexibility and calm the mind.

When not practicing yoga, Chloe can be found dog walking, planning her next travel adventure or with her nose in a good book.

Gary Collins

Gary qualified as a Pharmacist in 1984 and worked for large and small companies and eventually purchased my own. Due to interest in Martial Arts, I studied karate for a number of years after obtaining a black belt. I taught on many occasions from 1986.

I undertook an Acupuncture training in 1996. During this time I discovered Qi Gong & Tai Chi which I find gives people a way to support their own systems. I have been practising Qi Gong for the last 20 years and I am now undergoing my teacher training within the 5 Element System. Whilst studying acupuncture I also discovered Craniosacral Therapy and went on to qualify as a therapist in 2000.

I have deepened into the practice with many advanced courses over the years (Shock & Trauma, Prenatal Development Pregnancy; particularly in embryonic and cardiovascular work, Neuroendocrine & Immune System & Stress Response). This work allows a deepening mindful connection with our own inherent health to enable us to become more resourceful self-regulating and resilient.

Gemma Carey Clarke

Gemma’s started her career as primary school teacher. She spent ten year working in many different areas, including special educational needs schools and alternative provisions. During this time she developed increasing concerns about children’s mental health in education, recognising that children cannot learn if they are stressed, anxious and have a negative self-image.

As a keen yoga practitioner from a young age, Gemma embarked upon a 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training Diploma and then found Special Yoga and it all clicked into place. She had found a therapeutic approach for children which could help them feel regulated, calm and peaceful.

Special Yoga therapy was developed by Jyoti Manuel of Special Yoga. The methodology is based on the belief that all children are special and deserve to experience peace joy and fulfilment of their potential and purpose. Moreover, all children are special regardless of abilities, appearance, culture, gender, race or the assumptions society has placed on them.

George Bavin BA (Hons), CPE, LPC, ITEC (Sports Massage Association registered)

Following a legal career, George instigated some fundamental changes in his life and began to work in the Health and Social Care sector with people who had suffered a traumatic spinal injury. He also worked alongside clients struggling with progressive degenerative conditions and with others at the very end of their lives.

During this time George became aware of massage as a form of therapy. He was impressed with its healing value and in particular, the positive impact it has on physical health and mental well-being.

He also found that people responded well to him as a Carer, his calm and personable demeanour relaxed and comforted his clients.

In June 2015, George went on to obtain the ITEC Level 4 Sports Massage qualification. Since then he has been steadily building a reputation for consistently delivering high quality massage focused on meeting the needs of his clients. He enjoys event work, particularly if the weather is good, and embraces opportunities for professional development.

George works to maintain a high level of physical fitness and is committed to the study of Tai Chi.

This Chinese martial art focuses on self-awareness through movement, like a form of active meditation. Awareness of his body’s positioning has helped George improve his posture and resolve his own back pain, thus promoting his longevity as a Massage Therapist.

For George, Massage Therapy is key to achieving his ambition: to facilitate anybody, athlete or otherwise, achieve their optimum. He can help you to prevent injuries and promote recovery: to enhance your performance, promote your self- confidence, and provide you with some guilt free head space in which to unwind.

Gosia Miernik PG Diploma in Counselling MBACP

Gosia grew up in Poland and also lived in Italy for two years before settling in England. Experience of moving and living abroad forced her to question, develop and redefine her personal and cultural identity. It gave her a privileged position to view things from more than one perspective and it helped her to understand that redefining ourselves is an ongoing process and a part of life itself.

Her life and her experiences have led her to career in Counselling. She is  person-centred counsellor  incorporating expressive arts into her practice. She works with adults of all ages and backgrounds and has had supported people with a broad range of issues. She gained a PG Diploma in Counselling Skills ( Person-Centred) from  The Norwich Centre,  following completion of the Post-Graduate Certificate from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and the BA degree in Fine Art from NUA.

Gosia writes:

‘For me, counselling is a process, a collaboration between you and me. I am not a fixer, therefore, I will not fix your problems or tell you what to do. I will not give you advice on what is best for you or how to live your life. I understand that starting counselling could be concerning; I will give you time to go at your own pace and full attention for you to explore what is troubling you and what matters for you. We will work together; we might explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviours to help you get insight and a better understanding of yourself and your needs.

Knowing yourself and getting clarity about your situation can provide the foundation for change. I offer a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space to talk about things that are troubling and concerning you.

Gosia works with a range of issues, offering both short and long term counselling work.

Issues she covers include:Eating disorders, Self-harm, Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Post-traumatic stress disorder, Trauma, Personal development, Self-esteem, Spirituality, and health

Kathy Payne is a Women’s Hormone Health and Fertility Coach, Preconception Care Practitioner, Homeopath and Homeobotanicals Therapist working here at Treat. Kathy also works with Acupuncturist Rebecca Geanty. They offer joint packages of care to women through  also based at Treat. 

Kathy writes:

"I’m on a mission. A mission to calm hormone havoc and modern life madness. Naturally.

If you’re a woman suffering haywire hormones, I’m your gal.

My special interests are:

cycle issues
pre-menopause - those baffling symptoms you get in your 30s and 40s when you think you’re far too hip and happening for the M word
stress and energy.

You’d be amazed how many common symptoms are down to hormones – weight gain, sleeplessness, low immune system and many more.

I tailor my approach to YOU. Because you are unique and special and deserve to be treated that way. Here at treat (and you WILL be) and everywhere else.

You’ll find me a Wellbeing Fairy Godmother not the Health Police. I believe that by choosing good habits at least 80% of the time we’ll be healthier, happier and more balanced.

I’m a glass half-full, rose tinted specs wearing, positive kinda person. You can expect hugs and humour served with your professional support and encouragement.

And I help using a unique combo of health coaching with nutrition and lifestyle guidance, preconception care, homeopathy, herbal tinctures, natural fertility awareness and hair testing.

But I wasn’t always a Health Coach. Oh no.

I’m a reformed tired, tubby and tetchy Corporate Stress Bunny. I lost over 2 stone and tamed my own haywire hormones and awful ailments by living well and natural therapies.

Maybe you could too. With my help.

Here at treat, I offer packages of care by myself and I also work with others to support women and couples to reach their goals."

Liz Thurston

Liz Thurston 

I started my career as a children’s Nanny working both in the UK and the USA.  The care of children and the support of parents is close to my heart. I returned to the UK and worked in the ‘old’ Norfolk and Norwich Hospital in various wards before settling on Quinton Ward, a unit for children aged 0-2 years before moving to other wards for children up to 18 years.  

Over the years and with more training and experience I began working with children with life limiting and life-threatening conditions.  I also became a foster carer caring for children with disabilities. It was through this work that I retrained and became a children’s social worker, working with a number of families, offering support and guidance before becoming the manager of a Norfolk Children’s Centre.  

In 2013 after redundancy I started my  own business named “One to Cherish”, focusing on the support of parents and their children.  The work includes developing the Onesie Baby Prep programme, a class for parents to be to prepare them for caring for their new-born baby and teaching the IAIM Baby Massage programme both on a one to one basis and in group classes.  I have worked with all families including parents and carers who are adopters and foster carers.  

Becoming a parent can be hard and sometimes lonely. My passion is supporting parents, carers and their babies, offering them the tools to build confidence, support  emotional well-being to network with other people who offer them strength. 

Molly O’Brien RM. BSc (Hons) AHBM. RCM

Midwife, antenatal educator and hypnobirthing practitioner, Molly has practised as a midwife for 20 years in both hospital and community settings, attending hundreds of women in labour. She is also been an associate lecturer at the University of East Anglia (UEA). Her area of expertise is physiological birth, hypnobirth and waterbirth, but she also has a wealth of experience in complex birth. She recently retired from full time clinical midwifery in an NHS midwife-led birth unit to focus on running courses for both colleagues and for women. She is an expert in normal, straightforward birth, and how to keep it that way. 

Molly chose to switch from nursing to midwifery after giving birth to her own children ignited a passion for the powerful and unforgettable experience of becoming a mother. In twenty years of clinical practice little has delighted her more than witnessing the calm, confident births of women who trust in their bodies and birth instinctively. A key element of such births has been a lack of fear. Molly understands through her work how fear interferes with normal physiology,  and how various factors, increased medicalisation, media sensationalism, and a less closely socially connected world have all helped bring fear into the birthing room.

Molly is an advocate of hypnobirthing, she trained as a hypnobirth practitioner on a course specifically for midwives because: “it’s an excellent tool, transforming fear into the calm confidence that gives women the best possible chance of a normal birth.”

In her practice she always took a "salutogenic" view of birth and throughout her career has studied and trained in techniques to help "keep birth normal". The techniques she learned and developed worked so well she started teaching them to students and staff in her hospital - this has evolved into a one day "Biomechanics for Birth training day for midwives and other birth workers that she regularly takes to Spain and has gone as far afield as Chile as well as venues across the UK. 

She also teaches "Moving for and Easier Birth" for women - demonstrating a series of "tricks of the trade" that can help get labour moving and keep labouring women more comfortable in pregnancy as well as whist giving birth and has just added one to one debriefing sessions for women who are struggling to come to terms with their birth experiences

Monique Thapar, BA (double honours) KF Assoc

My journey to Health Kinesiology started when I was at university and all of a sudden I started getting this terrible abdominal pain. The pain was so bad that I could not move, I had an increased heart rate and I was short of breath.

I went to my GP who said it seemed like I had IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) but I needed a blood test and an ultrasound scan to rule out anything else. My GP advised me that IBS can be caused by stress and diet, that sometimes it happened to due lack of fibre in a diet or sometimes due to too much fibre in a diet. Luckily my blood test and scan came back clear so I tried a low fibre and a high fibre diet but sadly to no avail.

I happened to meet an Australian lady and what she said changed my life forever. She told me that she had suffered like I had and nothing the doctors had advised had worked for her and she had found a Kinesiologist who had helped her.

Although I didn’t know anything about Kinesiology I went with an open mind and felt such tremendous improvement after only one session. Without Kinesiology I would not have been able to graduate from university.

After I graduated I wanted to spread the word about this incredible therapy, the wonders it can do and I also wanted to help people the same way it helped me. I studied Health Kinesiology and Touch for Health Kinesiology with Health Kinesiology UK in London and qualified last year.  Now, here I am, as a passionate Health Kinesiologist ready to help you transform your life!

Rebecca Geanty Lic.Ac. BSc (Hons) MBAcC

treat’s founder and proprietor Rebecca works as a registered Traditional Acupuncturist, specialising in natural fertility for men and women. With over eight years experience running her own practice and a BsC (Hons) from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) she has helped countless patients with a variety of mental, emotional and physical conditions.

In 2010 Rebecca created Norwich Acupuncture Rooms at the Orange Grove Clinic as a way of making acupuncture more accessible and affordable to a wide range of people. In China acupuncture is a very common practice and recommended weekly to begin with for effective treatment. Rebecca’s goal was to replicate this in the Western world with the multi-bed setting to allow patients the option of weekly treatment at a more affordable price.

A year later Rebecca also set up the Acupuncture Childbirth Team for East Anglia (ACT), which acts as an acupuncture network for other practitioners to share and learn information on natural birth techniques and pregnancy-related complaints.

Rebecca’s latest passion is treat – a unique holistic clinic where the practitioners all strive to work together for the people of Norwich; combining their skills and knowledge in providing one-to-one care and group sessions/workshops, which empower and educate people to reach a state of wellbeing and contentment. Norwich Acupuncture Rooms is now an integral part of treat.
