About me

I operate from home where I offer clients a bespoke treatment in a peaceful, unhurried environment, (with free parking). I am now up and running with my newly decorated therapy room (which is up a flight of stairs). I am available in Buckland St Mary, (located between Chard and Taunton) by appointment, during the day Mon to Sat and some evenings Mon to Fri.
The following range of complementary therapies are offered:

Lodge House is also a B&B (Bed and Breakfast) with one double room with a king sized bed, we can offer Therapeutic Breaks. Visit www.lodgehousebandbsomerset.co.uk for more details

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in Reflexology in 1995 and Aromatherapy in 1996 and have been practising ever since.

I am ITEC qualified - that is through the International Therapy Examination Council and am an A.O.C. Registered Aromatherapist, and a friend of the A.O.R. (Association of Reflexologists) and registered with CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council).

A couple of years later, I also qualified in Indian Head Massage and Hopi Ear Candling (Thermo auricular therapy) and then studied Bach Flower Remedies to practitioner level.

Also I hold an ITEC certificate in Diet and Nutrition (which does not make me a nutritionalist but I am able to give nutritional advice), and I have also studied Basic Counselling skills.

Continued professional development is important to me, so I have undertaken Advanced Reflexology Techniques workshops with Tony Porter, one of the UK's leading reflexologists and also attended a weekend workshop in Maternity Reflexology, and a one day workshop in vertical reflex therapy.

I am a member of the Complementary Therapists Association which is part of Embody and am fully insured. see www.embodyforyou.com
In 2006 I became a qualified City and Guilds 7407 Stage 2 sessional tutor, working in the community for East Berks College, offering short introductory courses in Aromatherapy and Massage, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage. I am a member of the Institute for Learning and CRB checked. I worked at the Windsor Complementary Therapy Clinic from Jan. 1998 to Dec 2009.

My treatment room in my home in Buckland St Mary, is a nice quiet room (up some stairs). After the consultation, I turn down the lights to create a relaxing atmosphere and always offer my clients water or herbal tea to drink. It is an unhurried, homely atmosphere and not at all clinical or conveyor-belt-like. There is free parking outside.

All treatments are tailored to the individual, and are preceded by a consultation about lifestyle, health and diet. Advice on self treatment and lifestyle changes can also be provided.
