THERAPIST RECOGNISED WITH EXCELLENCE AWARD
Barbara Scott, has won the title of 2017 FHT Complementary Therapist of the Year at a national awards ceremony.
The award was presented to Barbara at a prestigious FHT Excellence Awards Dinner held at the Royal Pump Rooms, Leamington Spa, on 17 November. Organised by the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT), the Excellence Awards aim to bring much deserved recognition to high-calibre practitioners, students and tutors working in the fields of complementary, sports and holistic beauty therapy Barbara, founder of Seren Natural Fertility and Chair of The Association of Reproductive Reflexologists based in Carmarthen, specialises in providing reflexology treatments to couples who are having trouble conceiving.
Her interest in this area was sparked 20 years ago, after treating her very first reflexology client, who was struggling to fall pregnant. As a result of supporting this one lady, many more clients – both men and women – started coming to Barbara, presenting with a range of fertility issues.
At the time, Barbara had difficulty finding any courses to further her knowledge in this complex field, and so she began to research the subject extensively and develop her own reflexology treatment protocols. Two decades later, Barbara has helped hundreds of couples struggling to conceive – through her own private practice, and by training other therapists in Reproflexology.
Barbara has formed collaborations with medical professionals, presented at major events, and authored a book, called Reflexology for Fertility, so that others can benefit from her vast experience. She is currently working with Cardiff Metropolitan University to extract data from a Reproflexology study and put together a research paper.
Speaking about her win, Barbara says: ‘I am truly delighted to have received this award in recognition of not just my own work, but the fantastic work that our practitioners do in supporting couples having difficulties in conceiving. My hopes are that it allows us to let couples know that there is support for them, that reflexology is an excellent tool and that making even the smallest changes can be beneficial to them on their journey to parenthood ’
Paul Battersby, President of the FHT, says: ‘These awards are designed to recognise individuals and businesses that are excelling in therapy practice and education. Winners like Barbara should be exceptionally proud to be selected from a pool of high-calibre peers, in a ceremony that is recognised across the industry. Well done.’
All initial consultations are usually with Reflexologist Barbara Scott, chairman of the newly-formed Association of Reproductive Reflexologists, acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading experts in working with couples undergoing assisted fertility treatment.
Barbara sees clients in South Wales at the Llandeilo Natural Health Centre and at her own clinic near Nantgaredig just outside Carmarthen.
We also offer the initial consultation by Webinar for clients who live in other parts of the UK. Barbara will then arrange for a Seren-trained therapist near to you to offer treatment under her supervision.
Having a child of your own is one of the most enriching experiences that a couple can have.
However, an increasing number of women are finding it difficult to conceive with as many as one in three couples experiencing fertility problems. Of these, one in six will seek medical help with conception.
Getting help to get pregnant can be both stressful and expensive with private medicine only available to those who can afford it. Complementary therapy can provide help and support for only a fraction of the price.
Complementary therapies work in a number of ways to enhance fertility.
On a physical level they can tackle medical conditions that may be present. They are also excellent at reducing levels of stress. Psychologically they can also help address the complex mental and emotional facts which may be affecting your fertility.
At Seren Natural Fertility we are devoted to the treatment of preconceptual care, infertility and pregnancy using complementary medicine and other beneficial techniques.
We are happy to treat women (and men, too!) at any stage in their fertility planning, whether they are enhancing their general health before trying for a baby, experiencing problems with conception or require help and guidance during pregnancy.
Many of our clients are undergoing fertility treatment with conventional medical practitioners. We work in ways to enhance their therapies and boost the chances of success using your body’s own mechanisms.
Every client is treated as an individual.
At Seren we offer natural fertility treatment. This includes an initial consultation with Barbara Scott, a highly experienced reflexologist and therapist who has been working successfully in fertility treatment for over seventeen years.
At your first meeting Barbara will take a detailed medical history, including information on any mainstream fertility treatment being undertaken, together with details of your diet and life-style.
Based on this initial consultation clients are offered a course of treatment which could include reflexology for fertility, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, herbal medicines, dietary changes and supplements.
For many years Barbara has recommended that clients seek out a number of different products which they might find beneficial to both prepare for pregnancy and to boost natural fertility levels. We are delighted that many of these products are now available directly from us. Please see the products section of the website for more details.
We also run a number of natural fertility workshops which many of our clients have found of real benefit in the past.
For practising reflexologists Barbara runs introdutory and weekend courses in her own brand of fertility reflexology (known as Reproflexology(TM) throughout the UK. These courses are approved by the AoR – the Association of Reflexologists.
We are currently booking new courses in London, East Midlands, Cheltenham, Bath, Southampton, and Leeds. If you are interested please contact us for more details or follows the link to courses available.
