St Luke’s Therapy Centre

Welcome to the St Luke’s Therapy Centre.

St Luke’s Therapy Centre is an Anthroposophically Based Centre for healing and transformation. We believe there is a physical body made up of tissues and cells and driven by metabolic systems which drive the body. Good examples are digestion and movement. Digestion and movement are signs of life and so we acknowledge that these are a consequence of a life force energy. This life force energy is critical to the healthy functioning of your body. If your life force energy is diminished you would feel tired, lack lustre and life would become an effort. Through the many therapies on offer at St Luke’s we would help you to bring those life forces back and restore wholeness to the body. We offer a holistic approach which includes your spiritual, emotional, life force and physical bodies.

The therapies offered include Art Therapy, Chiropractic, Counselling, Eurythmy, Rhythmical Massage, Alexander Technique, Sensory Integration, Singing Therapy, Therapeutic SpeechHomeopathy, Nutritional Therapy  and Anthroposophic Medicine.

All our therapists are experienced therapists and doctors and experts in their own fields.

Comfort and Support

During my recent cancer treatment Ursula gave me much comfort and support with gentle but very deep and meaningful eurythmy exercises. I highly recommend her therapy.

An Exemplary Doctor

In my opinion, Dr Claudia Kempfen is an exemplary doctor. As a patient with a rare condition she has been supportive and genuinely caring, researching where necessary and pursuing channels of further investigation. Her attention to detail is unfaltering and thorough. I consider her humanitarian attitude a further gift for those in her care. MF 15.07.2016

Highly Recommended

Dr Andrew Evans is little short of a miracle worker! He transformed me from a hobbling wreck to a reasonable upright and free moving 73 year old!!! Highly recommended. Peter J

Art Therapy with Karin Jarmin

These sessions were painting the map of my future! I am deeply grateful for this wisdom and expertise that Karin brings to her sessions. A.A.

I could feel myself growing taller

After a short demonstration in which Rachel assessed and guided me through some sitting and standing exercises, I could feel myself growing taller. My arms lengthened, I was breathing more evenly and have been making a conscious effort to sit straight, even when driving. Sue Smith, Stroud – Editor of Stroud News and Journal

Strong, Clear professional boundaries

"Linda works with strong, clear professional boundaries.  She is so mature in her job that these boundaries are kept alive by heart forces, thus treats patients as equal, meets patients in their higher Being." Avie, Hungary.

Totally Headache Free

I visited Andrew over a year ago because bad headaches were affecting me. With his expertise and knowledge, I am now totally headache free and always leave with a total sense of general well being - feeling totally revitalised!!! Tracey L

St Luke's Art Therapy

I now feel armed with knowledge and tools that really help me; not only have I been supported in my journey to get well, but I have also discovered a new way of seeing life and a skill which I had always wished I possessed, but never had the chance or indeed the inclination to follow. With the nurturing and caring support I have received from Karin, I have found within myself a centre of peace, calm and inner confidence which I can use to apply to every day life. H.R.

Biographical Councilling Testimonial

Through helping me to discover the connections between different times of my life, and exploring present struggles, Andrea has enabled me to find a new peace and acceptance of both myself and others.  I feel more light-hearted, and the world is more enjoyable. J

Increase Confidence

I have learned that Alexander Technique is much more than a way to correct posture. It is about recognising the influence of the body on how we feel and think. In a professional capacity, more recently I have noticed people mention my openness and approachability in meetings. This is a direct result of my improved posture and awareness. Without doubt it has contributed to successful outcomes from meetings, including winning new business. For anyone who has an open mind, is looking to increase confidence and be less self conscious I do not hesitate to recommend Rachel and her teaching of the Alexander Technique.

Feeling Lighter and Brighter with Rythmical Massage

"I am a long term sufferer from fibromyalgia.  It bothers me with widespread pain and discomfort, especially in cold weather.  I have benefitted enormously from Rhythmical Massage therapy with Linda to keep me feeling lighter and brighter, with fewer aches and pains, better circulation, sleep patterns and all round well-being throughout the winter months.  I can definitely recommend her services."  Irene.

Back Problems

I have suffered from back problems much of my life (recently discovered one leg is longer than the other) and must say the longest time pain free was after a series of sessions with Andrew - only not having more because I left the country! Bruce Fenton

Dr. H. Joyce (GP)

Art Therapy has been an invaluable asset to what I can offer my patients. They have returned to me stating a significant change and transformation in their lives or simply feeling more empowered to cope with their situation. I can warmly recommend art therapy with Karin Jarman. Dr. H. Joyce

Alexander Technique

I enjoyed the sessions immensely. Rachel is very calm and reassuring and she put me at my ease. The room in which we worked was quiet and peaceful – a place of quiet sanctuary which made me feel safe and secure.

A Refreshment with Linda Aylward

"Linda has a healing touch and carefully listens to the body's ailments .... My muscles feel soothed and fully relaxed after this gentle rhythmical application  -  a true letting go a refreshment. " S.A.M.

Wellbeing

I feel so blessed to have met Andrew. I have experienced such a profound level of healing after each treatment I have had, on a mind, body and soul level. Andy is an incredibly caring, professional, wise and knowledgeable Soul and works with such integrity to get to the root of the issue presented enabling healing to take place. The ladies at the centre are so welcoming, calm and approachable too. To echo a previous reviewer, I have found my treatments to be life changing on so many levels. Thank you.

Karin gently guides and encourages

Karin provides a peaceful, secure and calm environment in which one feels free to explore one's inner emotions through colour and art. This was a very powerful process for me and is a true 'therapy' through art because Karin gently guides and encourages you to work through emotions and feelings through your own creations, allowing you to grow, discover and take steps forward with a new found strength. Karin is very intuitive and guides you in a unique way. - T.F.
