A little bit about my life as a therapist

The more I learn, the more my passion for holistic therapies grows. My work has changed my approach to so many aspects of my life and continues to surprise, inspire and encourage me to continuously develop and further my understanding, knowledge and skills as a therapist.

As a full member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists, I offer treatments from my dedicated therapy room at home in Tenterden and for local clients, daytime treatments in their own home. I am proud to have been able to use photos of just a few of the babies I have been lucky enough to help into the world with reflexology and or massage for my website. Their gorgeous little faces dotted about the website make for wonderful motivation.



As a Reflexologist

Having studied reflexology for a year with 'Essential Reflexology Training', at 27 I qualified in January 2012 with distinction and was awarded an ABC level 3 Diploma in Reflexology. Under the wonderful tuition of Wendy MacMannaway, a hugely knowledgable and experienced holistic therapist and mentor, I developed a strong, intuitive and accurate style of reflexology and discovered a passion for assisted conception and fertility treatments.

Following qualification, I chose to further my interest by studying at 'The London School of Reflexology' in order to specialise in fertility and assisted conception, pre and postnatal care reflexology. This course covered not only the reflexology skills required but the importance of overall health, diet and lifestyle allowing me to gain a more rounded understanding of how best to advise and support couples. More recently, I also completed additional training in Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage, to offer relief for patients following surgery, during and after pregnancy and lymph oedema.

When my nephew was born, I loved using reflexology for his tiny feet and felt inspired to teach others how to treat their own children for common complaints such as teething, digestive issues and restlessness. I studied baby and toddler reflexology and now offer workshops to people hoping to learn specifically designed techniques to treat their own children which I find hugely rewarding.



About me. massage

As a Massage therapist

As my client base grew and I became more established, I noticed many of my clients suffer as a result of stress and it's affects on the body that I decided to complete training in Indian head massage and enrol with 'The London School of Massage' to better target muscular tension and pain to the body, especially the back neck and shoulders. I completed my ITEC Level 3 holistic massage course with distinction in April 2014 and have been very much enjoying massage therapy both as an individual therapy and combing it with reflexology.

I feel such conviction for my role as a therapist and am always looking for new ways to better assist my clients on their own personal journeys. Having researched the right course for me, I located a Sacral digestive and fertility massage course run by the fantastic Helen Rohlicek to further my fertility treatments. I completed the intensive course in early June and am very excited about the potential it holds for so many of my clients.

In order to offer more complete maternity support, I now also offer prenatal massage from 14 weeks. This therapy has allowed me to grow and develop as a massage therapist which has been fantastic and ensures my clients have a greater, more comprehensive choice of therapies throughout their pregnancy.



About me. Homeopathy hosptial

As a Homeopath

On turning 30, I began studying for a degree in Homeopathy with Middlesex University at The Royal London Homeopathic Hospital alongside my work as a therapist. I feel truly moved and empowered by my experience of using homeopathy and am very much enjoying using it in practice with patients.



About me. ESO

Whats next for the eternal student...?

September 2016 marked the start of what will probably be my greatest professional challenge yet; a 4 year undergraduate, integrated masters in Osteopathy.

Fuelled by my own experience of combined homeopathy and Osteopathic treatments, I am striving hard to achieve similar results for my own patients and look forward to the day I can combine these treatments in clinic myself. I have now begun my 2nd year and continue to practice alongside my studies.
