I graduated as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1986 and have worked in health care ever since. I have always had an interest in complementary therapies and qualified as a reflexologist 15 years ago. I now focus solely on reflexology and I am passionate about its benefits.
Reflexology is non-invasive and involves massage and pressure most commonly applied to the feet. It is based on the theory that different reflex points on the feet correspond to different areas of the body. Most people find it deeply relaxing, calming and nurturing. I do not set out to diagnose or cure medical conditions but I work holistically alongside medical professionals to provide better health and well-being as a whole. I understand the importance of the intrinsic connection between mind and body. I have spent several years working at a local hospice and have expertise in treating people with illnesses such as cancer, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and COPD which clearly bring individual and very personal challenges to patients and their families.
I also have my own private practice where I regularly see clients with stress and anxiety-related conditions, sleep disorders, migraines, menopausal symptoms and digestive disorders.
I enjoy playing tennis and regularly get out and about by tandem. I am an enthusiastic (although not so talented) ukulele player! I also enjoy reading, cooking and love to travel.
