About me

Tilby is a biodynamic craniosacral therapist and occupational therapist who blends her dual skill sets with the aim of connecting the brain and the body.

She takes a ‘bottom-up’ approach to her therapy to support nervous system function, which includes creating safety in relationships, primitive reflex integration, nervous system regulation, and building awareness skills such as interoception, emotional awareness and body awareness.

Tilby is also a trauma-educated therapist who strives to ... empower her clients to facilitate experiencing safety in their body, in their relationships and in their environments. She has developed skills to support trauma-integration and build nervous system resiliency.
Tilby works with women through online support to explore self-regulation, nervous system resilience and finding safety within your body.

Tilby specialises in occupational therapy for children, providing tools for parents to support children in their daily lives. Her treatment centres on self-regulation, body awareness, sensory processing, relationships and social connection, neuro- development and integration of primitive reflexes.

Children who have a good mind body connection can better regulate emotions, engage in learning and be socially connected. Tilby takes a whole family approach, getting the family to come along with her on the journey which helps give them a sense of empowerment.

Her craniosacral therapy facilitates the body’s inherent, built-in healing system to encourage the body’s full expression. It works directly with the nervous system to support regulation and balance between the brain and body, via the central nervous system.

After graduating as an occupational therapist in 2015 and working in the field for several years, Tilby continued to search for confirmation of the mind-body connection.

She went looking for more information to understand the nervous system and how the brain and body are connected, and the influence of this connection on our health, wellbeing, thoughts and experiences in life.

Working to address her own unresolved emotional experiences in her early life and undergoing bodywork, Tilby was eventually led to studying Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.

Tilby says her own experiences with sensory processing help her to relate to the children and teenagers she works with, and to appreciate a wider understanding of how they might be experiencing their world.

She uses a strengths-based approach to support and encourage clients to recognise their strengths, leading to building self-confidence, their sense of self and support their wellbeing and enjoyment of life.

Tilby feels humbled and privileged to work with people and support their healing journey to realise their innate potential.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

Craniosacral Therapy is a bodywork modality (and stems from osteopathy, ... meditation and somatic psychology). The practitioner uses gentle, light touch to directly engage the nervous system, supporting the body physiology in a non-invasive approach. Sessions are conducted with clients fully clothed.
This safe and supportive light touch can facilitate safety within the nervous system and orients us to the health in our body to enhance well being and revitalisation in the body.

The term ‘Craniosacral’ refers to the cranium (head) and sacrum (back of the pelvis). The body expresses natural patterns and rhythms, through subtle micro-movements in the bones, fascia and throughout our body systems.

Craniosacral Therapists monitor and support the body’s craniosacral rhythm, through active listening using my hands and highly-trained perception. The craniosacral rhythm is the body’s expression of health and balance of the nervous system.

Benefits of Craniosacral Therapy:
❊ Feelings of relaxation and calmness
❊ Reduction in tension or pain sensations
❊ Feeling more energetic
❊ Coping better with stressful situations
❊ Improved body awareness
❊ Feeling more connected in your mind and body
❊ Clarity of mind
❊ Improved sleep and digestion
❊ Integration of traumatic experiences

What to expect during a session:
At beginning of your appointment, we will chat about your history and current experiences. You will then lay on the massage table fully clothed. With your consent, I will make gentle contact with your body and guide you to explore sensations.
Generally, I will place my hands on different areas of your body and contact your feet, knees, hips, pelvis, abdomen, shoulders, and head.

Throughout the session, your awareness will likely amplify, allowing you to notice sensations and tensions within your body. You may experience or notice feelings of release, small movements and adjustments, temperature changes and feelings of deep relaxation or relief.

Craniosacral Therapy supports people of all ages to deepen their connection to themselves and supports a balanced state of wellbeing.
