Aromatherapist • Indian Head Massage • Reflexologist • Lotus Seed Process • Reiki • Hypnotherapist
I qualified as a Registered General Nurse (RGN) in 1989 from Guy’s Hospital, London.
I realized I wanted to go into Complementary Medicine early in my nursing career so I then studied for a degree in Anthropology and Music (looking at different ethnic groups and health in particular) at Oxford Brookes University.
Experience and qualifications in complementary therapies
In 1994 I graduated from the Raworth College of Natural Medicine, Dorking as a fully qualified Holistic and Clinical Aromatherapist and Bach Flower Consultant.
I later qualified in Indian Head Massage in 1995; Touch for Health, 1996; Barrie Alexander Method of Pelvic Correction, 1998; Advanced course in B.A. method of Pelvic Correction, 2000; 2nd Degree Reiki, 2000; Fully qualified practitioner in Reflexology; 2001.
My practice over the years has given me on-going experience in clinics of Complementary Medicine, GP Surgeries, Sports centres, Psychiatric hospitals, Social Services, Boots Health Services and with The Terrence Higgins Trust. The ethos of Integrated Medicine (i.e. health professionals working together) is very important to me and plays a big part in where I choose to work from.
Working with a broad spectrum of ages, conditions and both men and women has challenged and developed my practice. I am passionate about my work and enjoy seeing people becoming interested and aware of these disciplines in treatment sessions, seminars and presentations.
My main interests lie in treating immune disorders such as frequent colds, arthritis, HIV, ME, cancers; stress management and back pain.
