I trained at the Oxford School of Reflexology which follows the curriculum of the International School of Reflexology and Meridian therapy based in South Africa. The ISRMT was founded by Inge Dougans, a world authority on reflexology.
I am a fully insured, professionally registered practitioner with the Association of Reflexologists. The association's aim is to maintain a high standard of care and members abide by the associaton's code of practise and ethics. Members of the Association have met the strictest standards for Reflexology practice and are committed to continually developing their skills and knowledge.
I am also a member of the ART register of Advanced Reflexologists.
Since qualifying I have continued my professional development by attending courses in Advanced Reflexology Techniques, Clinical Reflexology, Palliative and Supportive Care, Reflexology in Pregnancy, Caring for pregnant clients, Enhancing Fertility and Maternity Reflexology.
I have also undertaken further training at Penny Brohn Cancer Care, Bristol and will be attending the course Adapting Reflexology for Hospice and Cancer Care in November at The Christie NHS Trust.
I am also trained in, and practise, Chinese Reflexology and Foot Mobilisation.
I have considerable experience in the treatment of stress related conditions and depression and I am currently undertaking a stress management diploma.
