My name is Jan Griffin and I am a fully qualified complementary therapist specialising in a holistic approach to care and recovery.
You can experience any of the therapies I offer within my therapy room in Pensby or, when necessary, I provide home visits so you can relax and benefit from your chosen therapy, within the comfort of your own home within the Wirral.
I want to ensure a positive experience for you and I always work to complement any existing guidance from your GP, medical team, Mental Health team or Councellor so please continue with any prescribed treatments and allow Alternative and Energy practices such as Reiki, Reflexology or Aromatherapy to support your recovery.
Complementary therapies should never be used in place of orthodox medical care or medication. Always consult your doctor for medical care and diagnosis. Always advise your doctor or other healthcare professionals (Doctor, Midwife, Councellor or other consultant) if you are receiving complementary therapy.

Professional Organisations -If you are wary about visiting a complementary therapist, I recommend choosing one that belongs to a professional body.
What is a professional body?
There are various professional bodies (also known as member organisations) in existence that have taken on the role of self-regulation within the complementary and alternative therapy industry. While therapists are under no legal obligation to join a professional body, membership does mean they have met certain requirements set by their professional body and must abide by a code of ethics and complaints procedure.
The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) is the largest and leading professional association for therapists in the UK and Ireland. With thousands of members offering a broad range of specialism – from sports and remedial therapies, to complementary healthcare and holistic beauty treatments – the FHT is the association of choice for professional therapists.
I am a member of the FHT.
Accreditation of its register means that the FHT has met the Professional Standards Authority’s demanding standards in terms of governance, education and training, setting standards, managing the register, providing information and dealing with complaints.
CNHC – Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)
CNHC was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists. CNHC’s register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care
‘The Accredited Registers quality mark gives extra peace of mind for anyone looking for a complementary healthcare therapist, letting them know that anyone who holds the mark is committed to high standards.
AoR – Association of Reflexologists
The Association of Reflexologists is the foremost inspirational and independent Professional Reflexology Association in the UK since 1984, providing benefits, advice and guidance to reflexologists and working with other external bodies and advisory groups to promote the highest standards in the profession. The Association of Reflexologists is not for profit and is the only UK reflexology membership organisation that are members of both RiEN , and the Reflexology Forum and also the CNHC and has representation at the Parliamentary Group for Integrated and Complementary Healthcare (PGICH).
The Reiki Council
The Reiki Council is the lead advisory body for Reiki practitioners in the UK. Through its member associations it represents the views of people giving Reiki to the public across the UK. The Reiki Council is non-profit-making organisation that sets standards and guidelines, provides information and advice. The Reiki Council was formed from the Reiki Regulatory Working Group (RRWG) in July 2008 and re-named itself as the “The Reiki Council”.
The Reiki Council aims to offer a platform for all styles of Usui Reiki and its guidelines are non-style-specific.
If you are looking for a practitioner or teacher, we recommend you always look for a member of a reputable organisation and preferably one that is affiliated to the Reiki Council. For Reiki Council member organisations visit the Reiki Council website
