Kat Marriott – Complementary Therapies,
Counselling & Spiritual Therapies
Hello and welcome to Crow Valley Therapies, I’m Kat, and I run Crow Valley Therapies along with my husband Gareth. Between us we have over 25 years experience in the field of Mental Health and Holistic Well Being.
Up until March 2018 my career had always been in the caring sector working as a Mental Health Nurse. Several years ago following a thought provoking conversation with a patient, I realised that I wanted to work with people as a whole, rather than separating them into categories such as mental health, physical health, and so on. I wanted to use my clinical talking skills in a positive way and I got my Counselling degree in 2008. Counselling allows me to open up a dialogue with a potential for looking forward. And looking forward, who best to start with than my own career and practice.
The World (and me) was finally waking up to the fact that we need to be whole, it’s not enough to just focus on fitness, wealth, health etc. as separate things and as I started learning more about well being and complementary therapies. I realised that there was a need for more well being and holistic work. I worked for my level 1 & 2 Reiki attunements and practised for a certificate in Indian Head Massage in 2012. In 2018 I completed a Complementary Therapies diploma in Reflexology, Swedish massage, Hot & cold stone massage and Aromatherapy.
The plan was to be able to offer an holistic approach to individual well being and life purpose offering different therapies such as Counselling, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Stone Massage, Reiki, Indian Head Massage, Meditation, Tarot Reading and Spiritual work, which can be blended together or used separately to open up and offer a personal, bespoke range.
I was finding that many people were looking for well being, but were finding it difficult to navigate the benefits of different therapies and experience of a fully trained and qualified practitioner. As the most important person in any therapy practice is you. I wanted to ensure that my practice is safe and that I work in an ethical manner. So please don’t hesitate to have a look around the website, or ask me any questions you might have beforehand.
I am really looking forward to meeting you for your talking or complementary therapy appointments with me, until then. Take care – Kat
