I qualified as a Reflexologist with the Association of Reflexologists in 1992. I am also registered with the Confederation of Healing Organisations as a Healer Practitioner having initially completed The Healing Trust Foundation Course in 1994.
I have always worked with people, commencing my career as a General Nurse, then qualifying as Midwife and subsequently Health Visitor. I have also worked with numerous charities supporting adults, children and their carers affected by a range of issues including; learning and physical disabilities, dementia, life limiting illnesses, mental health and medical conditions. I am in a privileged position to have been able to achieve a broad knowledge and insight into the needs of a wide variety of people. I also have personal experience of being a family carer, as I have a daughter with a learning and physical disability.
I first discovered reflexology in 1988 when I was selected from the audience as part of a reflexology demonstration. Although initially sceptical, I was impressed by the positive difference reflexology made to my personal well-being and continued to receive reflexology on an ongoing basis. My Reflexologist was also the Tutor of an Association of Reflexologists' accredited course, and I subsequently completed this training to become a Reflexologist.
The Reflexology training was the beginning of my journey as a complementary therapist and I have expanded my development along the way to include Healing and a variety of other reflexology and healing related qualifications. Continuing professional development is an important aspect of my working practice. I continue to attend training and participate in activities to ensure that I am up-to-date with the numerous developments affecting the delivery of complementary therapy. My journey continues and I enjoy meeting people and learning new skills as opportunities unfold.
I set up Suffolk School of Healing in 2015 so that I could share my experience and knowledge to support others interested in spiritual development and Healing. At present, I offer 'An Introduction to Healing' course which comprises of two full day workshops for those interested in spiritual self-development and healing for themselves, friends and family.
