I have always been fascinated with a holistic view of health and life being interested in complementary therapies and practicing yoga since my late teens.
I trained in Swedish massage in 1993 after the birth of my first son. I then went on the do a full time holistic therapies course and extended my work to include Reflexology and Aromatherapy and to develop my massage training with MTI. In 2001 I graduated from the Bristol school of Shiatsu.
I am committed to doing regular CPD to keep my knowledge up to date and provide the best treatments I can for my clients.
For example and in the last 5 years I have trained in Auricular Acupunture and Reflexology, Myofascial release and Lymph drainage Reflexology to add new tools to support my clients with.
I have always worked with pregnant women but I wanted to explore this passion further and in 2006 I completed a postgraduate course in Maternity care with the Well Mother organisation and went on to become one of their teachers training therapists to work in pregnancy.
Over 14 years ago I started training to teach complementary therapies and have taught them in several schools including Bath City College and Bath School of Shiatsu and Yoga who I teach with. In 2013 I took over the Bath School of Reflexology founded by Rosalind Oxenford who had been my inspiring Reflexology teacher years before.
I have expanded the school into a College for Complementary Therapies, where the course focus on CPD courses for therapist.
The way I work aims to bring an awareness of emotional and spiritual health relating to our lifestyle and physical wellbeing. This often comes through negotiating the stresses arising from life’s many transition points such as birth, death, marriage, divorce, work or illness. To work through these times of transition and gain the positives of personal growth we often need support and a held space and this belief is at the core of my practice whether I am teaching students, working with individuals or with couples in birth preparation classes.
