About me

I have worked in hospital and practice settings as a dental hygienist prior to graduating as a Holistic therapist.

I returned to study as a mature student and completed a BSc.(Hons.) Professional Practice in Complementary Health Therapies, incorporating professional qualifications with the Massage Training Institute, the International Federation of Aromatherapists, The Clinical Association of Reflexologists and the Sports Therapy Organisation.

I now divide my working week between providing various therapies to my own private clients and working as a dental hygienist in general practice.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have had some experience working with the Complementary Therapy team at St. Catherine's Hospice and also volunteer work at Branch Court care home providing hand and foot massage to residents.

In addition, I have worked with Pendle Phoenix RUFC; who assisted me with my dissertation project, investigating effects of myofascial release on performance.
I continued to work with the team on a voluntary basis for a couple of years, treating injuries with soft tissue therapy and supporting them pitch-side at home games.

  • BSc. (Hons.) Professional Practice in Complementary Health Therapies
  • Level 5 Sports Therapy Diploma
  • Level 4 Holistic Massage Diploma
  • Level 3 Sports and Remedial Massage
  • Practitioner Diploma in Reflexology
  • Diploma in Aromatherapy
