Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner
I started my working life at a bank, intending to stay there for 6 months until I figured out what I really wanted to do and 22 years later I was still there!! Thankfully about 10 years ago I decided to have a complete change of career and re-trained as a therapist, and I've never looked back.
My training began with a Diploma in Therapeutic Massage which incorporated Advanced Massage Techniques, Pregnancy Massage and Sports Massage Techniques and I then went on to do Reiki First Degree and Reiki Second Degree, which enhanced my practice greatly.
Whilst working at St Catherine's Hospice, I was introduced to Hendrickson Method of Massage and Manual Therapy and once I had trained in this, which took approximately 2 years, it quickly became my go-to treatment for most musculoskeletal complaints, due to the success I was seeing with clients on a regular basis.
I've since trained in Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage, Indian Head Massage, Balinese Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Reflexology and Acupressure Massage.
I decided to undertake further training and qualification in order to equip me to deal with some of the more challenging emotional issues that clients were coming to me with. This prompted me to train in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) so that I had a solid, well respected, therapeutic technique with which to help clients in this area. I now combine this technique with most treatments and it is also a wonderful tool for clients to learn for their own self-help. I am fully accredited with EFT International (EFTi, formerly known as AAMET) which is the global regulatory body for EFT.
I have recently furthered my Reiki journey by undertaking the Reiki Master Practitioner Degree, and intend to complete the Reiki Master Teacher Degree in the near future.
I feel that the combination of therapies that I offer provide an extremely effective solution to help you back to health, whether that be physical, mental or emotional, and to promote your own self healing. I look forward to meeting you.
