About me

My Learning Path

Having positively decided to move away from my initial career as a Chartered Surveyor, I trained as a Reflexologist with the Scottish School of Reflexology in 1994.

In 1996/7, I studied Holistic and Therapeutic Massage, and Anatomy and Physiology with the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine in Glasgow.

 

I was discovering that it is difficult to dismiss or ignore the connection between the “physical” body and the “energy” body, which resulted in a comprehensive training in Reiki between 2000 and 2002.

To advance the scope and possibilities of my massage work, I trained in Indian Head Massage (Champissage) in 2002.

Recognising the importance of the mental-emotional aspect of how we feel and how we function led to my training in Hypnotherapy in 2003 and further, in 2006. In 2007, I undertook additional training in Hypnosis for Childbirth in Birmingham with leading NCT Trainer, Hypnotherapist, Midwife and Doula, Karen Duignan; and in Past Life and Reincarnation Therapy with Steve Burgess (www.lionheart-training.co.uk) in Hull.

In 2004 and 2006, I trained in Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), a powerful addition and useful self-help tool.

During 2010/11, I worked as a Variable Hours Lecturer at Stroud College, Gloucestershire, teaching Massage, Indian Head Massage and Spa-based treatments and have a CTLLS qualification in teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector.
