My Story ...
I have always been interested in holistic therapies and, from my early teens, would be reading books about zone therapy, acupressure, aromatherapy and suchlike. The natural way of life and the ability for our bodies to heal has always fascinated me and has remained strong to this day.
In my early 20s, following post-op nerve damage and facing another hospital referral, I decided to explore alternative medicine and booked myself in for acupuncture. Not only did it help the original condition, but it helped with stress relief and energy levels too. It was a few years later that I came across a book on alternative medicine and Reflexology leapt from the page at me ... and this was to start me on my journey as a holistic practitioner.
Obtaining my diploma in Reflexology and Anatomy & Physiology in 2002 really was a turning point in my life and I have gone on to study many other therapies as you will see listed within the website. I am passionate about making a positive difference to both people and animals and this can be achieved by working with the mind, body and soul.
In addition to working with from my private practice, I have also worked within two NHS Trusts. In 2015, I worked within the Respiratory Clinic at Hertford Hospital where I offered short sessions of energy healing around patients' appointments with their consultant. This was often a great way to help patients feel more relaxed and calm when they were sometimes facing the unknown with their current health situation.
And for 3.5 years I worked within an NHS Trust Drug & Alcohol Counselling Service in Luton where I offered Reflexology and Back Massage as a way of supporting the many issues service users faced whilst being supported by the counsellor/psychologist. I absolutely loved this area of work and being able to offer complementary therapy to individuals who had often never experienced holistic therapies before. Their feedback and love of the service offered made each week a joy to be there.
