It was a bout of malaria and over a decade of chronic debilitating illness that led me to discovering a natural and holistic approach to health. So rather than return to my Biomedical Science degree, I retrained to help others on their own path to better well-being.
Initially qualifying in Usui Reiki and Rejuvanessence, I then went on to train with the oldest established school of Reflexology, the International Institute of Reflexology (IIR) with Hagar Basis in London, and have been practising the original Ingham Method for nearly 10 years.
More recently I have become an Advanced Practitioner in Flower & Vibrational Essences, supporting emotional and spiritual wellness.
I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists (MAR), the British Flower and Vibrational Essence Association (BFVEA) and the British Association of Flower Essence Producers (BAFEP) as the creator of my own range of essences, Illuminessence.
