A warm welcome to my website. Some information about me:
My initial career was as a General Nurse, Midwife and Health Visitor. I took a break from nursing when I had my family of three children. During this time, I was introduced to reflexology at an evening presentation. My initial reaction was one of scepticism as I could not see the value of something 'unscientific'. However, having been selected as a 'guinea pig' by the reflexologist, I had to admit to myself during this first session that there was 'something' very special about this modality.
Some years later, having benefitted from ongoing reflexology sessions, I readily accepted the invitation of my reflexologist to participate in the reflexology training she was about to launch.
I have run my own therapy business since 1992 when I qualified as a Reflexologist. I have subsequently trained as a Healer Practitioner and can also offer a variety of other reflexology and healing related therapies. I also run weekly Zoom 'Relaxation and Guided Visualisation' sessions. Please check out 'therapies available' for further details about what I provide.
I set up Suffolk School of Healing in 2015 so I could share my experience and knowledge to support those who are interested in spiritual self-development and healing for themselves, friends and family. I provide a variety of training courses.
Apart from my nursing career, I have experience working for a range of charities. My roles focused on developing and providing support services for individuals and their family carers experiencing the affects of medical and physical conditions, learning disability and dementia. I am also a family carer to my disabled daughter.
I work with a variety of groups, including carer's support, Stroke and Axis, to provide taster sessions or workshops. I am a registered speaker with Suffolk and Norfolk WI. I have adapted some of my workshops, including hand reflexology, to be delivered via Zoom.
I continue to develop and expand my knowledge on an ongoing basis. Continuing professional development is an important aspect of my working practice as I participate in ongoing training to ensure I remain up-to-date with legislation and working practice to maintain delivery of quality complementary therapy.
My journey as a complementary therapist continues; I enjoy the opportunity of providing therapies to people from a wide variety of backgrounds and learning new skills as opportunities unfold.
I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how I can assist you on your journey of health and well-being.
