After working for a number of years in public sector management in both Public Health and Local Authority and leading on commissioning and strategic plans for children and young people, I decided it was time to make some personal changes after the birth of my second son. I wanted to have a better work and life balance and to do something more practical to help people by using my energy, empathy and intuition in a rewarding and positive way. I felt drawn to becoming a practitioner in complementary health and particularly interested in the science and wisdom behind reflexology from personal experience and awareness. I decided to go on a new journey of discovery and retrain as a Clincial Reflexologist.
Complete Reflexology builds on my skills and experience acquired through my previous career and in-depth practitioner training. Many of my clients have commented on my intuition skills, empathy, attentiveness, professional, caring and natural approach. It is an absolute pleasure and privilege to perform reflexology on someone and act as a channel of healing.
I trained under the tuition of Allison Walker at the Contemporary Reflexology College and qualified with a Centralia Mastership in Reflexology (incorporating Agored Cymru units at Level 5). Level 5 is the highest level of Reflexology training available in the UK, equivalent to a Foundation Degree or Diploma in Higher Education. All of the course units are assigned to the Nursing and Subjects and Vocations Allied to Medicine Sector.
My comprehensive training enables me to practice reflexology on the feet, hands and ears as well as meridian and synergistic reflexology. I have received specialist training in providing reflexology for those living with cancer, those in need of palliative care and to support those requiring fertility and maternity reflexology.
I am an authorised member of the Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) Network and was trained by the creator Lynne Booth to use VRT techniques http://boothvrt.com/. I also use the Advanced Reflexology Techniques (ART) http://www.artreflex.com/ in my treatments and I am working towards full ART registration.
As a Clinical Reflexologist, I am dedicated to improving my clients health and well-being by offering a holistic service which is tailored to their emotional, physical and spiritual needs. I am constantly in awe of how this natural therapy can help the body to align itself with its own energy and ability to heal, given the right support and signals.
