GET TO KNOW ME - DAWN GOODES
My holistic approach to promoting a healthy mind, body and soul stems from my years of practice in various massage techniques. As I developed my experience of body work, I became aware that our thoughts and feelings manifest themselves physically within the body’s cells and tissues. This, together with the help of a trusted osteopathic friend and colleague, led me to the Karuna Institute and, after a two year training course, I qualified as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist in May 2013.
Many of my clients come to me with physical symptoms, such as back pain, but continue their treatments after the original condition is resolved, as they find their overall health improves and their sense of wellbeing increases. The supporting and nurturing quality of Craniosacral Therapy gives my clients the opportunity to release strain and tension from their body and reduce the feelings of overwhelm that a modern life can bring.
I am a member of the Craniosacral Therapy Association (CSTA) and a committee member of their Supervision Committee. I regularly receive supervision from a registered CSTA supervisor and have treatments from. Karuna trained therapist. I am fully insured and hold a current first aid certificate.

How I use your information
The data I take will include your name, address, telephone numbers, date of birth, the GP surgery you are registered with, any other health or wellbeing professionals you may be seeing and a full medical history. After each treatment I will make notes about the session and any relevant information regarding the treatment given. This is in accordance with my insurance and the Craniosacral Therapy Associations (CSTA) regulations. It also allows me to track the progress of treatment and assist in the recollection of previous treatments, especially if there are large gaps between sessions. Before you submit any information, I will notify you as to why I am asking for specific information and it is up to you whether you provide it.
I will also store your name and telephone number on my business mobile phone. I will send reminder texts the day before your next appointment if you have agreed to receive them. I will also call you should you be more than five minutes late for your appointment to check if you are on your way. If you do not wish to receive either of these communications, please inform me in writing.
Will I disclose your information to, or share it with, other organisations
I will never disclose your information to, or share it with, other organisations. I have regular supervision with a supervisor registered with the CSTA. During these sessions I may discuss your case with my supervisor but will never include any personal information. The supervision process ensures that I am supported in my work and can offer the best possible treatment for my clients.

I take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data. All files are held in a locked cabinet at my home.
