Getting to know me.
My interest in complementary therapies started some years ago after receiving Shiatsu and Reiki to help with my chronic insomnia. They worked! As a result I decided to train as a therapist so that I could help other people whose lives are affected by health issues and have been practising complementary therapies since 2009.
Having graduated in Reflexology to ITEC level 3, I continue to develop my knowledge and abilities. Most recently I've attended a workshop on Foot Pain which demonstrated how to use Reflexology to help clients with Plantar Fasciitis, Gout, Morton's Neuroma and Metatarsalgia. I have also become accredited by MASCED (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection) which is a programme training health and beauty professionals to identify early signs and symptoms of skin cancer so that they can suggest clients get them checked out by a health professional.
My training in Seated Acupressure massage was undertaken with the European Shiatsu School.
My Ear Candling training took place at the Jackie Hamilton School of Therapies in Norwich, where I did my initial training in Reflexology.
I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists and am a registered Reflexology practitioner with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. Both organisations have rigorous standards of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as a requirement of membership.
As well as giving treatments at my clinic in Boxted near Colchester, for two years I also delivered sessions for Help 4 Heroes (H4H) at the Personnel Recovery Centre in Colchester as part of the Complementary Therapy team.
My clinic is in a quiet location, yet easily accessible from Colchester and Sudbury and just 6 minutes from J28 of the A12 or the A134.

I enjoy a bit of variety in my life so like to take my therapies to places other than my own clinic. I have delivered corporate Seated Acupressure sessions to companies in Sudbury and Colchester and have attended horse trials (working on the riders, not the horses!), pamper evenings and charity events, as well as a wellbeing event for students at Essex University.
