About Jayne

Jayne Doyle

I have always been passionate about health and wellbeing. My early career began in the sports and leisure industry, where I held various administrative and management positions. At 24, following the unexpected passing of my father, I decided to take some time off to travel. This journey played a crucial role both in helping me to process my grief and introduced me to diverse cultures, spiritual traditions, and health models.

Over a 2 year period my travels took me through Asia, Australia and New Zealand. It was during this time that I began to practice yoga, meditation, learn about Ayurveda and received many wonderful thai yoga massages. My desire to be a therapist grew, and I was keen to share everything that had helped me so much.

In 2000, I graduated from the University of Westminster, London with a BSc in Health Sciences and Complementary Therapies. This education provided a solid foundation for my practice, blending intuitive understanding with the knowledge of Western science and Eastern traditional systems. Over the next few years, I dedicated myself to personal development and practitioner training, whilst continuing to explore different parts of the world, understanding how different cultures experience and treat illness and promote wellness.

As I developed my practice, I brought therapies into the corporate world and enjoyed many seasons working at some of the UK’s largest music festivals. Between 2010 and 2013, I volunteered with the charity Healing Hands Network, offering therapies to civilian survivors of war in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Each year, we’d spend two weeks offering trauma support through deep tissue massage, Reflexology and energy work and I was touched by the dignity and grace of the people, despite the horrors they endured.

After a family member was diagnosed with leukaemia my interest in Cancer Care developed. I worked as an Aromatherapist for Sue Ryder and completed a Diploma in Adapting Complementary Therapies in Cancer and Supportive Care from The Christie NHS Trust in Manchester. Soon after, in 2013, I secured my first full-time position as a Cancer and Palliative Care Complementary Therapist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust in London.

I moved to the UCLH Macmillan Cancer Centre in London as the Senior Complementary Therapist and Service Manager, covering sabbatical leave. My next NHS oncology experience was as an Integrated Therapist and Tutor at The Christie NHS Trust in Manchester between 2020 and 2022, where I continue to work on a part time basis.

In between NHS contracts, I founded The Quiet Way and at the same time completed my Mindful Yin Yoga teacher training. After years of Iyengar and Hatha yoga practice, I found the style and pace of yin yoga suited me perfectly and I adore the practice. Soon after qualifying I had the pleasure of living and working at the award-winning retreat and yoga teacher training centre, Suraylila, in Andalucía, Spain, for one year.

‘The Quiet Way’ name was conceived on a car journey from London to Berkshire. There was a discussion about talking therapies and that for me, I found significance in the potency that lies within the unspoken communication of massage, and I said, “I work quietly, I am the quiet one, the quiet way”. The hairs on my arm stood up, so I knew I had my business name! The Quiet Way is a blend of three decades of professional training, inspiring teachers, personal experience and a little something from each person I have treated along the way.

“At the heart of my practice is an intention to create an environment where you feel comfortable and safe. A place where you can take a breath, slow down and rest and release or dissolve, a pain or hurt, and welcome wellness.”
