About Me

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  paid 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 good working practice affecting the delivery of 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.
