I am Jayne, founder practitioner of The Quiet Way. This pages gives you a little more detail into my background and training.

After a career in sports and leisure management at the age of 24, I took a 2 year worldwide trip, exploring cultures and countries through Asia, Australia and New Zealand. This was a life changing trip, with amazing experiences that opened up a whole new philosophical understanding of myself and life.

I knew then that my life was to be lived in a different way, wishing to be authentic and live my passions each day. To that end I returned to study. In 1997 I qualified in Reflexology and Indian Head and Shoulder Massage and from there went to study a BSc in Health Sciences and Complementary Therapies from the University of Westminster, London (2000). Since then I have studied numerous post graduate and advanced trainings in a wide range of massage therapies, energy healing, aromatherapy and flower remedies. I have been fortunate to blend this practitioner development with travel. My keen interest remains working with trauma, anxiety and total pain.

Other professional experiences include: working in a retreat centre in France, attending a month long Thai Yoga Massage circus in Greece and working for many years in the healing fields at various UK festivals.

Through all the years I have maintained a personal practice of breathwork, meditation, yoga, running and contemplative study. I have experienced many of the painful things in life that we all likely to experience at one time or another, including: anxiety and depression, loss and pain. Without a doubt these personal experiences inform my professional work and whilst I don’t have all the answers, maybe I have something to offer, if only the reminder of the value of slowing down and taking some quiet time.
