Without the use of needles, we use acupuncture points on hands and feet to measure the health of all internal systems. This is a pain-free diagnosis. What is more remarkable is that the most effective remedy can be tested without further aggravating the body. This method also allows me to test for over 700 known allergens. Using a combination of homeopathy and bio-electric functional diagnosis many childhood conditions can be treated such as asthma, acne, eczema, glandular fever, the after effects of vaccinations, autism, behavioural issues etc.
Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to book a consultation.

Pure Living Collection
Children just love the feel of the soft light-weight, hypoallergenic Spundown Duvets. Mums love them too, for this is the award winning duvet that just loves to be washed, time and time again. For summer the 3.0 tog Pure Cotton Duvet is a popular choice of children’s duvet as it will help your child maintain a regular temperature on warm summer nights.
The polyester hollow-fibre filling of the Anti Allergy Duvets and Pillows contain material in which house dust mites cannot live, thus playing a major role in helping to relieve allergies caused by them. Alternatively, the Anti Allergy Duvet, Pillow and Mattress Protectors all provide an effective barrier between your child and the dust mites and their allergens.
Pure Living Collection also offers some pillows with slightly less filling and therefore perfect for smaller shoulders, whilst waterproof mattress protectors offer their mattresses protection against those all too common accidents and spills.
Craniosacral Therapy for Children and Adults - Judith Timmins RCSTThe Old Stables, Rectory Road, Great Waldingfield CO10 0TL
I have specialised in the last three years in working with children and adolescents with Asperger’s Syndrome, high-functioning autism, ADHD and Tourette’s Syndrome. I carry out diagnostic assessments as well as therapy for a range of issues (such as anxiety, depression, anger, behaviour).
I work with preschool children and parents on a range of issues including toileting, sleep, feeding and behaviour.
I am also very experienced in carrying out intellectual assessments with children and young people. I work collaboratively with children and their families to achieve the best outcomes. I run a clinic in Wallingford, South Oxfordshire.
I am always happy to be contacted for an initial conversation to decide whether my input is appropriate. I am a registered member of the Health and Care Professionals Council (no. PYL19659) and British Psychological Society (no. 82247).
I have a certificate in counselling children and adolescents and offer a wide range of play and creative materials and methods for children to use as they explore any troubles they may have in a safe, private and friendly place.
I work in a practical and professional way with, eg, traumatic experiences, wetting and soiling, bereavement, bullying, family relationship struggles, difficulties at school, shyness and anger and can also suggest strategies to help handle things in a clearer way.
Parents/guardians are welcome to come and meet me first for an informal, confidential discussion.
There is disabled access.
I am highly qualified and experienced, with an MA in Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy and a Certificate in Counselling Skills. I have been practicing in schools and privately since 2007.
I am accredited with UKCP and a registered member of BACP. I also have regular supervision.
Through my work I create a warm, safe, nurturing and non-judgmental space; helping people of all ages gain insights into themselves and find ways to manage difficulties such as anxiety, depression, trauma, anger, sleep problems and bereavement; in turn helping them discover their true selves and fulfill their potential in life.
I am trained to use different techniques such as Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Art Therapy amongst others. I am also Person-Centred, meaning I see us as equals and highly value the thoughts feelings and experiences you, or your child, may bring to the therapeutic process.
Please see my website for more detailed information.
The Parent Support Service also provides psychological therapy for children and adolescents, using brief, evidence based techniques to address emotional concerns such as: anxiety; fears & phobias; depression; low self-esteem; obsessive thoughts & compulsive behaviours and post-traumatic stress.

- Educational / Psychological Assessment
- Therapeutic support to children and teenagers
- Parenting support
- Consultation to schools
We can help with a range of emotional, behavioural, social and learning issues that may be contributing to a child or teenager feeling unhappy, lacking in confidence or feeling out of control. Following psychological assessment, the child psychologist works with parents so that individual treatment plans can be developed to support them and their families in understanding and addressing their difficulties while at the same time acknowledging and nurturing their relative strengths, in order to help them to reach their potential.
Please see our website for parenting tips and more information about who we are, how we can help and what we offer.
You are also welcome to call us for a free telephone consultation to see how we can help prior to booking an appointment.
