Originally from London, I moved to Poole to start a family. My children are now grown up and a move to Bournemouth has ensued. Whilst I enjoy the buzz of city life, I love living by the sea which has a profound effect on my serenity.
I am passionate about reflexology and came across it back in 1994 when I was experiencing some stress-related symptoms and conditions. I loved it as a treatment and found it hugely beneficial and transformative. This eventually led me to switch from training in psychotherapy to reflexology!
QualificationsI qualified in reflexology ITEC and anatomy and physiology ITEC in 1996. I trained with the North London School of Massage and Reflexology.
My work background is in office management, having worked for 12 years in the corporate world in London. After making a decision to live abroad for 3 years, working firstly in retail and then in property management and the food, leisure and entertainment industry, I returned to London with a strong desire to change my pace of life and direction. This lead me to complete 2 years of a 3 psychotherapy training and then on to studying reflexology. I absolutely love the physical hands-on approach to helping people hence the move away from psychotherapy to bodywork.
I have recently obtained my Level 3 Health and Safety Diploma for working as a holistic therapist.
ETF Level 2 (Emotional freedom technique is also known as “tapping”)
Matrix Reimprinting Level 2
I trained with EFT Master Karl Dawson at the EFT & Matrix Reimprinting Academy (EFTRA) in 2015.
I am particularly interested in the direct effect of thoughts on the body, the mind/body connection, the stress response and how to calm the mind and body to assist healing.
I also have an interest in mindfulness meditation, nutrition and women’s wellbeing.
I am extremely passionate about the management of fatigue-related conditions, including ME/CFS which I have personal experience of.
