I am Jayne, founder of The Quiet Way and I’d like to share a little of my story. After a career in sports and leisure management, aged 24, I took time out to travel, a trip that was to last for 2 years, with wonderful experiences to broaden and deepen my understanding of self and life. Following qualification in Reflexology in 1997, I went on to study a BSc in Health Sciences and Complementary Therapies at the University of Westminster, London, UK (2000). Post graduate advanced training followed in a range of massage, energy and botanical modalities.

Between 2010 and 2013, I worked with civil survivors of the Bosnia war, through a charity Healing Hands Network. People were referred to us through the Association of Concentration Camp Victims, the Association of Civil War Victims, Mothers of Srebrenica, Concentration Camp Union and the Centre for Torture Victims. This was some of the most profoundly intense and rewarding work I have undertaken and embedded trauma as a cornerstone of my practice.

In 2013, I studied at The Christie NHS Trust in Manchester and gained a Diploma in Adapting Complementary Therapies in Cancer and Supportive Care. Following this I worked as a Cancer and Palliative Complementary Therapist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust. Moving to the position of Service Manager/Senior Therapist at the Macmillan Cancer Centre, UCLH NHS Trust, offering therapies and support to oncology and haematology outpatients, inpatients, radiotherapy and chemotherapy patients and included adults, teenagers, paediatrics and their families, leaving the NHS in 2015.

The Quiet Way was born, an integration of my skill set, experience and knowledge of the previous years, with complex trauma being my speciality. My intention is to offer a therapeutic witnessing presence, a space for people to feel safe, develop agency and thrive.

Expanding my skill set further, in 2016 I gained a teaching certificate in Mindful Yin Yoga, from the Mindful Yoga Academy, Spain and went onto live in South West Spain for 1 year working as a massage therapist, meditation and yin yoga teacher at Suryalila, an International Yoga Retreat Centre. Ever curious to learn, in 2018 I gained a Diploma in Quantum Botanicals, with the School of Natural Medicine, exploring the use flower remedies, essential oils, herbal medicine, nutrition and so much more, to support health and wellbeing.

In late 2019, I took a sabbatical back to SE Asia.  An opportunity to immerse in spiritual study and meditation and to attend Awakening Leadership training in Thailand, led by  The International Network of Engaged Buddhists. Returning to the UK I was successful in the new full time post of Integrated Therapist at The Christie in Manchester starting March 2020.  Little did we know what was around the corner with the global pandemic and now, more than ever, we need to take care of ourselves and the planet in an integrated holistic way.
