I began practising in 1995, managed a busy clinic and also ran courses (from introductory to diploma) for the Association of Natural Medicine (ANM) and was a tutor and NVQ Assessor for the East Essex Community College. I was a member of the Governing Council and Chair of the Examinations Committee for the ANM and also represented the ANM on the Legal & Parliamentary Sub-Committee of the Aromatherapy Organisations Council. This body was instrumental in beginning the process of setting UK-wide professional standards for therapists. I also had a Natural Health help column in a local paper.
I am a professionally qualified Clinical Aromatherapist, Reflexologist, Massage Therapist, Indian Head Masseuse and a Reiki Practitioner. I am also qualified in the treatment and management of Sports Injuries and Remedial Massage.
I combine my knowledge of different massage techniques to provide a treatment specifically for you. Treatments are not routinely the same for everyone – it all depends on the problems presenting at each session, and so treatments are tailored to benefit the individual.
I was one of the first 7 practitioners in the UK to gain a diploma in NeuroSkeletal Realignment Therapy in 2001, which is a fantastically gentle therapy that is done through your clothing but can correct limited movement, muscular aches and pains arising from postural problems.
I am a member of the Complementary Health Professionals and I am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) for massage, aromatherapy & reflexology.
All practitioners on the CNHC register have met UK-wide standards. The General Medical Council guidance to doctors confirms that they are able to refer patients to practitioners on accredited registers – this includes the CNHC register.
