After working for a long time 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 help people by following my spiritual intuition and connection. I felt particularly drawn to becoming a practitioner in complementary health and was interested in the wisdom behind reflexology from personal experience and awareness. I decided to go on a new journey of spiritual discovery and retrain as a reflexologist.
A few years ago I trained at the Contemporary Reflexology College and qualified with a Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner reflexology, equivalent to a Foundation Degree or Diploma in Higher Education. I continue to attend courses as part of my professional development which fit with my practice and approach. However, I am continually learning from each of my clients and their individual responses to this amazing energy therapy.
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 am ART registered http://www.artreflex.com/art-registered-members.html and use the Advanced Reflexology Techniques (ART) http://www.artreflex.com/ in my treatments. I have been fortunate to have attended seminars led by Tony Porter who pioneered and developed ART and Tony assessed my ART registration exam.
As an energy therapist, I am dedicated to supporting my clients by offering a holistic service which is tailored to their emotional, physical and spiritual needs. Many of my clients over the years have commented on my touch, spiritual empathy, intuition, attentiveness, authentic and caring approach. 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.
