BA Hons (Wales) Spanish & Italian
Diploma in Reflexology (2013)
Diploma in Aromatherapy (2016)
As you can see, I never intended to make a career in holistic therapies! I spent many years as a teacher of Modern Foreign Languages, a Head of Department and GCSE examiner. However after the birth of my first daughter I suffered a "stress burnout" when I returned to full time teaching. I realised that my career had to change, as I did not want to return to a job that was making me ill.
While recovering, I had experienced firsthand the benefits of complementary therapies, and so I decided that I wanted to forge a new path in this area. I had already completed Reiki training to Master level, and I was lucky enough to be accepted onto the Level 3 Reflexology Diploma course with the Gaia School of Natural Health in Wirral. After completion (and the birth of baby number 2!) I went on to complete my Diploma in Aromatherapy.
I am now lucky enough to spend my days not only with my children, but I also am able to use the therapies I have learnt with my clients, to help them to relax, and to cope with the stresses that life throws at them. I am lucky enough to have a very comfortable treatment room at the bottom of my garden, and I also visit some of my clients at home.
On the second saturday of the month I also provide therapies at Warrington Wellbeing Days, please see their FaceBook page for more details:
