About Natasha Alan-Williams

Hi I’m Natasha. My journey to becoming a therapist came about through first hand experience of how chronic stress and trauma can affect the nervous system.

I began my adult life studying law and becoming a litigation solicitor in a large corporate law firm. Over ten years the lifestyle took its toll, it wasn’t pretty but my drive to thrive kicked in, I found the support I needed, moved on and never looked back.

Some years later, I suffered a trauma to the head, there was no physical damage but this didn’t stop the physical symptoms. I didn’t understand what was happening at the time and it was scary. With the benefit of what I know now, I didn’t need to suffer like I did and you don’t have to either.

We all have unique life experience, some things we can’t change but, always, my goal is to help you become a more empowered version of yourself, more at ease in mind and body, free from the limitations that thoughts, beliefs and fears place upon us all.


I have studied and trained in Myofascial Therapy since 2011. In 2017 I obtained an Advanced Clinical Diploma in Integrated Myofascial Therapy. This is a unique and much sought after diploma which requires advanced manual skills and advanced academic, theoretical and scientific theory.

During my three years of study to complete the Diploma in Integrated Myofascial Therapy I wrote clinical papers on the theory of pain and fibromyalgia and this research has formed the basis of my work with people with pain associated with chronic conditions.

Scar Tissue Therapy

In 2017 I began training to use Myofascial Therapy techniques specifically for scar tissue. I am listed on the UK ScarWork Practitioner register having trained to practice the Sharon Wheeler method in Scar Tissue Therapy. I am also listed on Susan Findley’s Oncology Practitioner Directory having been trained in Oncology Massage and having completed specific training to work with breast cancer clients post surgery.

Understanding the Nervous System

Specialising in the impact of stress and (physical and emotional) trauma on the nervous system, it is clear there is more to stress than lack of work / life balance and there is more to pain than the symptoms, so it is very necessary to have an understanding of the nervous system and to take a bio-psycho-social-emotional approach.

Since 2020 I have become an accredited SIRPA Practitioner (Stress Induced Pain Practitioners Association). I also hold a Trauma Informed Coaching Certificate and am accredited in Somatic Therapies, Emotional Processing and Root Cause Therapy.

Since 2012 I have provided hands on therapy for people with disability and neurological conditions. Examples include Spinal injury, MS, Parkinsons and Cerebral Palsy. I have also work with people living with the effects of chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, characterised by widespread chronic pain, which appears to result from dysregulation in the central nervous system. You can read more about this work here.


I have developed an integrative approach to the many different issues I am presented with, using Myofascial Release, trauma informed bodywork, Scar Tissue Therapy and Emotional Processing. My approach is tailored to your individual needs. 


When I am not helping my clients, I enjoy spending time outdoors, dog walks, yoga, swimming, and running and being on or in the sea!

Regulation and Insurance

I am registered with the Massage Training Institute (MTI) and the General Council for Soft Tissue Therapies (GCMT). As you would expect, I am fully insured and hold an up to date Appointed Persons Qualification in First Aid.
