Gabor Vajnai CST MCSS
Qualified and Registered CranioSacral Therapist following the teaching of Dr John E. Upledger and The Upledger Institute of CranioSacral Therapy. www.upledger.com
For over a decade and before embarking on practicing full time I have been involved in an intensive multi-disciplinary rehabilitation programme of individuals recovering after stroke or severe traumatic brain injury, including also other types of acquired brain injury (i.e. hypoxia following cardiac arrest, drug overdose and inflammations of the brain).
Previously I worked extensively with adults and teenagers with Autism, ADHD or other special educational needs and challenging behaviour in the Social Therapeutic environment of Camphill Community centres around the UK and in Ireland. Since then I have been a student of Anthroposophy the spiritual science and philosophy founded by Rudolf Steiner.
Clients are frequently seeking therapy because of an illness or struggling to cope with multiple challenges and demands piling up in their lives. CranioSacral Therapy is an excellent way to support our remarkable self-healing abilities. I am particularly interested in offering treatments as a way of prevention. Often the most encouraging therapeutic goals are assisting clients with maintaining their health while coping with demands. This includes building up and supporting resources, facilitating the process of discovering the origins of symptoms and developing resilience.
I have experienced the importance of self-knowledge and self-development in the process of healing and I believe in the immense potential of growing, developing through experiencing illness and recovery.
Illnesses, which may have appeared suddenly often have a long-hidden history of advancing under the surface. I advocate the importance of on-going holistic health care in prevention. Treating an existing illness or a lasting condition often begins with “firefighting” in other words trying to reduce acute discomfort and most importantly to rebuild resources to help the individual to extinguish the flames of pain, fear, despair, inflammation and stress.
Holistic Health Care may also support your inherent self-healing, and help you restore vital forces to improve your resilience, your ability to cope with various challenges in life including environmental stress and reduce susceptibility to bacterial and viral infections.
Background and Clinical Experience
Starting with my interest in psychology and personal spiritual development I was guided to the integrative and passionately humanistic approach of Dr John E Upledger’s teaching about the healing path through CranioSacral Therapy and Somato Emotional ReleaseⓇ.
My previous training and clinical experience includes

With great respect for my teachers I am very interested to support the learning process of other therapists. I continue to assist on trainings organised by the Upledger Institute UK and lead a CST Study Group for the development of CranioSacral Therapy skills.
I look forward to meeting you.
