De Vere Staverton Estate,

June Tranmer

Workshop title

Who's minding the kids?

Workshop times

Sunday 14.30-16.00

Workshop description

Do we need a well - trained membership, ready to treat all the babies and children after the successful fertility treatments we are helping with?

Are there things we can do to help IVF (and all other) babies recover from their experiences throughout pregnancy and birth? 

Are we sufficiently prepared to help babies cope with the hormones, the medications, the emotions that their mothers have gone through? What about the vaccinations given to pregnant women these days? 

Do we really know how much help we can give to children born with extra challenges? 

We can have a fruitful discussion about these and other topics to do with children's health. 

Speaker biography

After graduating from York University in 1980, with a BA Hons in linguistics, June taught English for a year, both in the UK and abroad, and then went into healthcare and has been there ever since. Having begun training as a mental health nurse in 1980, she had a break to have her two children, in 1982 and 1985.

June qualified as a Touch for Health instructor (kinesiology) in 1987, as an acupuncturist from the Northern College of Acupuncture in 1991 and as a paediatric acupuncturist in 1994. She obtained a PGCE in 2000. Her ongoing training has included mentoring and supervision, which she continues with for her own personal development. She has continued to study and add skills to her toolbox. Over the years, June has assisted at 13 births and helped many more women prepare for and recover from labour. She works very closely with her colleagues in The Healing Clinic to offer a comprehensive care approach for families and children. In 1996 she started teaching classes for parents and carers of children to help improve understanding of traditional Chinese medicine and the prevention of future problems.

She has been a member of the British Acupuncture Council since its inception and was the regional group co-ordinator for the York and North Yorkshire region for many years. She was the continuing professional development facilitator for all of Yorkshire following on from that, up until 2013.

June opened The Healing Clinic in Fulford Cross in 1992 in order to provide a wide range of quality complementary therapies to the public. It became a Community Interest Company in 2007. June opened a training room in 2001, (now called Briar House Resources) which hosts a wide range of classes, courses and meetings (also now a CIC).

June is an enthusiastic networker and belongs to several local business networks, attends the local Mental Health Forum, the Council for Voluntary Services, the York Social Enterprise Network, the local Dying Matters group of organisations, and was a member of the group of social enterprises that pioneered the Pop-up Shop We Are Your Emporium in York, selling work made locally by disabled people and giving work opportunities to disabled people in the shop.

June has pioneered the taking of complementary therapies into local organisations, offering seated, clothed mini-massage treatments for 15-minute sessions at various events, including AGE UK AGM, Unison AGM, Carers Forum monthly meetings and special events, City of York Council Staff Benefits events, regular visits to Refugee Action York, Leeds and York NHS Foundation Partnership Trust, the local barracks, the Retreat mental health hospital, Garrow House hostel for female ex-offenders, and delivered many talks on self-help techniques for stress to these and others. She is organising a team of practitioners to offer confidence-building workshops for people with learning disabilities and mental health issues, for the European Social Fund.
