Sami Turnbull

Being a qualified teacher, parent and RMT consultant has granted me insight and understanding of how our neurological development influences our readiness and capacity to learn, and interact with our surroundings both socially and emotionally.

People with retained reflexes can face immense challenges with these aspects of life and personal evolution.

I have personally witnessed the cumulative benefits in people of all ages through the use of RMT to overcome such challenges.

This approach is perfect for anyone seeking self-improvement or improvement for their child/children.

Please email me to find out more or to arrange a free initial consultation.

Emma Ashfield

In 2014, Emma started an amazing journey into the world of reflex integration with her own son. Having experienced other methodologies, she decided to qualify in RMTi after experiencing incredible change first hand.

Emma has a background in management consultancy, corporate training and human factors/change management – in fact RMTi is very relevant to this area and could quite easily be applied to a corporate setting!

She is the regional coordinator for the Dyspraxia Foundation, a voluntary position which gives a voice to and helps connect those with Developmental Coordination Disorder. She also has a wealth of experience of navigating the labyrinth of SEN within the school system.

Clients from age 4 to 102 have consulted Emma for a range of issues including mental health issues, learning, behavioural and emotional challenges as well as chronic conditions She works from an osteopathic practice in Cranleigh, and is available for home visits within West Sussex/East Surrey.

Silvia Giunta

Silvia is an experienced registered homeopath and will be completing her 3 year Nutrition Diploma in the Summer of 2019.

Her years of training and working in different disciplines allow her to see clients complaints from different perspectives and by combining homeopathy with RMT, other neurodevelopment therapies and her nutritional knowledge she works holistically to understand and overcome the possible roots of the problems presented by to her.

Silvia trained in RMT to find a way to further help and support her daughter, she finds that RMT is a gentle and effective tool to support any individual suffering from dyslexia, lack of concentration, developmental delay, and anxiety.

Rhythmic Movements Therapy is invaluable in her toolbox!

Kate Rigby

My first brief introduction to Primitive Reflexes and RMTi was through a course run by a local charity for parents to help their children with learning delays and emotional challenges (my youngest son has Down Syndrome). From that point we started to introduce some small movements and hand/foot massage into my son’s therapy routine. I then became further enthused about RMTi after we had a consultation for him with a fantastic RMTi consultant and decided to train to help my two sons with their development.

After attending the first two training courses, which I found to be a revelation, I decided that I wanted to qualify as an RMTi consultant so that I could help children and adults facing challenges in their lives. Now a fully qualified RMTi consultant, I love being able to help children and adults deal with the challenges that they are facing in life which can include: autism, ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, learning difficulties, anxiety, anger, depression, concentration, and general delays in reading & writing. I have been seeing great results with children with ASD, dyspraxia, lack of concentration, and difficulties with handwriting, and also adults with emotional challenges.

Lesley Ann Penistone

I feel very lucky to have discovered and trained in Rhythmic Movement Training. The best part is seeing how the client progresses over a period of time.

Through my own family’s experiences, I was made aware that movement is essential to childhood development. I have created Challenges, a bootcamp for children with anxiety and who have extra needs and need movement in a non judgemental and non competitive environment. This is open to children with some physical disabilities, developmental and behaviour challenges or any child who wants to take part but is never chosen for the team.

‘When I heard about RMT I realised how much sense it made. There are reflexes that when they are stuck, block further development. I have now qualified in all aspects of Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) and together with some other educational movement therapies, can put a plan together to help your child with anxiety, ADHD, autistism. dyspraxia, dyslexia, bedwetting and sensory processing. This I carry out in my one to one clinic. Here, I work with the child and parent/care giver, showing how the neuro developmental movements should be done. I am very empathetic to the family especially after my own family’s experiences. I am very approachable and can really connect with children. I can, by arrangement, also apply the therapies in a group session.

I am really pleased to share that existing clients have reported back, advising me that after just one session, changes have been noted for the better.

Sessions are for one hour, where I check for retained reflexes. Movements are shown to the parent and the child. The child tells us which ones he or she prefers and then during the month the movements are done regularly, working up to daily. Check ins are done as often as needed during the next month in between appointments. I can’t be specific on how long it takes for the therapy to be complete, it is different for each client, as long as positive changes are occurring, eg being able to pay attention for longer, handwriting becomes easy to read, self confidence is on the up, I will carry on with you until you feel that my job is done.

Please do get in touch.

Zara Peasland

Working in the water as a baby & pre-school swimming teacher since 2006 means I have seen a plethora of challenges in relation to ease of movement & co-ordination for some young children; coupled together with a child experiencing additional needs meant that exploring the world of retained reflexes was not only fascinating but also vital in the journey to help find a sense of ease & release for my son from the every day challenges he faced with anxiety, dexterity & hyper-activeness.

Combining RMT with listening to the pre-birth & birth story each of us holds, means we can look into the layers of each persons story & become curious about the ‘whys’ as well as the symptoms an active retained reflex can have upon the mind, body & soul.

Linda Hardman

Linda was born and brought up in South Wales, moving to Eastbourne in 1982. After working in administration and bringing up her young family she started a new career in teaching. During her 21 years of teaching experience she took a keen interest in how people learn best. She was fascinated when she heard about how simple exercises and movements can improve the way we learn.

After leaving full-time teaching she became a Private Tutor, specialising in helping children with reading, writing and spelling difficulties. Movement training is an important part of the work.

She is an Educational Kinesiologist and UK Faculty member for Edu-K, teaches Touch for Health and has been NLP Master Practitioner and Instructor for 20 years.

Karen Richards

I have been a teacher for 20 years, originally teaching English, in a secondary school and latterly as a school manager and SENCo, in a specialist college for children with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.

Experienced in working with children with attachment disorders, ADHD, ADD, ASD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and complex co-occurring difficulties. I am an associate member of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA) and support both children and adults who wish to improve their life chances through 1:1 programmes, which include Rhythmic Movement Training and other support strategies. I also work with schools, providing advice, training and work with individual pupils.

Gill Tree

I founded and owned for 22 years, the UK’s largest school of massage and pioneered bringing Positive Touch training to Special Care Baby Units, the Infant Massage Instructors Certificate course to the UK from the USA and the Massage in Schools program from Sweden. I am also qualified in Neuro Linguistic Programming and taught stress management to industry. The mind body connection has fascinated me for all that time and RMT is a brilliant therapy for that.

I was a respite foster carer for 2 years prior to adopting my son in 2011 when he was 3. Because of his difficult start in life, he presented many challenging behaviours and was very behind in his emotional, physical and intellectual development. I became interested in RMT when other therapies didn’t make sufficient long lasting change. Through RMT he has made huge progress; I now have a calm, emotionally intelligent, mature and co-operative 8 year old who is catching up at and enjoying school.
