Mental Health Support
Positively supporting your Mental Health with
Reflexology and Reiki
Reflexology is a gentle touch complementary therapy. You remain fully clothed except for your feet and ankles which is where I carry out the reflexology. Reflexology supports your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
When you come for reflexology or reiki, I hope you will find a safe, inclusive and supportive place. I space my reflexology treatments out so that you are unlikely to meet someone else coming for or leaving after their session.
Every page on my website has the ‘Safe Spaces’ logo. Clicking on this logo takes you to the Safe Spaces webpage which offers support, advice and useful contact numbers. This page leaves no trace in your internet history.
I’ve worked with clients who have various degrees of mental health needs including:
- Low level anxiety
- General anxiety disorder(s)
- Eating disorders
- Mood swings
- Panic attacks
I also welcome clients from the LGBTQ+ community who are interested in having support from reflexology or reiki. Please let me know if you have preferred pronouns before you come or upon arrival.
At your first session, I do go through a consultation form. The questions are there to help me plan our reflexology sessions. Some questions must be answered – for example contact details and a few others but if you prefer not to answer some of the more detailed questions you do not have to do so.
Reflexology and Reiki are not a replacement for mental health support given from other health professionals such as a GP, Registered Counsellor or Psychotherapist or similar.
Reflexology and reiki are supportive therapies which will help to reduce anxiety, stress and tension. The aim is to support and calm the nervous system and mind. I always suggest you let your primary care giver know you are coming for reflexology with me. I can provide qualification information, insurance details and DBS information on request.

Olivia has been offering reflexology since 2013 and has taken an internet in mental health since 2021. Since becoming a mental health first aider with Mental Health England, I have continued my journey into mental health support. An addition to other training, I’ve completed NCFE qualifications at Level 2 (high GCSE level) in counselling, domestic violence, adult social care and other subjects. I continue my training on a regular basis so you can be sure you are in good hands. I am listed with NHS Choices, am a member of the Association of Reflexologists and am on the CNHC professional standards register. I hold an online checkable DBS and am registered as a Dementia Friend.
The treatment room
The treatment room has a special electric treatment couch. The 4 motors allow each part of the treatment couch to be adjusted to any desired angle. Many clients say the wish they could take my chair home with them! The flexibility of the chair is great for when it’s not always possible to lie back (for example if reclining would make you anxious) and ensures you have a comfortable relaxing treatment. From my treatment couch you can look across my garden and take in the view while you relax. If you are comfortable to do so, you can close your eyes during the treatment session.
Ultimately, I want you to feel as comfortable as possible.
As always, please get in touch if you’d like to find out more before booking.
