About Me

I qualified as a reflexologist in 2005 and worked at a busy clinic, the Cheltenham Holistic Health Centre. Practising there for seven years I gained invaluable experience of co-treating with other complementary therapists, enabling clients to access the full support system that they needed. I'm convinced that mental health, motivation, support, nutrition and exercise are all equally important in terms of achieving and maintaining a state of Wellbeing

Through working along side an Osteopath I also became more aware of the importance of foot health and flexibility for our whole skeletal system.

I moved to Manchester in 2012 and it was here that I first encountered therapeutic/ trauma- sensitive yoga. Having practiced yoga during my pregnancy I had found it so beneficial that I began recommending it to all of my maternity clients! A logical step to me was to find out more which led to me training as a pregnancy yoga teacher to support my work as a reflexologist.

As a mother meeting other parents I became aware of the number of children suffering from stress, anxiety and trauma and the struggles these families often had getting the help they needed. I began researching the use of yoga therapy for children and, after completing further training, I now offer therapeutic yoga on its own or combined with reflexology, for children and young people and for those with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I also have extensive reflexology experience working in women's health, in maternity reflexology, with people dealing with anxiety, stress and pain, in foot mobilisation and with those undergoing treatment or recovering from cancer their carers.

As well as working privately, I work for the Macmillan cancer charity once a week, offering reflexology and RLD (Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage)

I have also recently set up a weekly low cost clinic together with an Acupuncturist to make treatment more accessible to the local community.

Since qualifying I have continued my professional development by attending regular courses and training. I also co-run educational retreats for therapists in Spain.
