I live in the lovely, quiet village of Sutton Bonington, Leicester with my partner, two daughters and our gorgeous dog. I have a background in science and hold a degree in Geology with Palaeobiology.
I’m no stranger to complementary therapies, my mother trained as a hypnotherapist in the 80’s and my father as a reflexologist in the 90’s, so I have witnessed first-hand how these therapies can improve people’s lives and general well-being.
After having my second daughter in 2014 I decided I needed a career change, I wanted to do something meaningful to help people in a way that worked around my family. In 2017, I heard about a practice called Reiki through a friends Facebook page, I did a lot of research and I decided to train as a practitioner.
Practicing Reiki has completely changed my life and when I saw how my family and friends reacted to their treatments, I knew that this was the path for me. After completing levels 1 and 2 I decided to add to my repertoire and Reflexology seemed the logical next step.
I trained at the highest level I could in the UK with a Level 5 Diploma in Clinical Reflexology with world renown reflexologist David Wayte, principal of Jubilee College and founder of the Finger Free® Reflexology technique and I haven’t looked back since. Reflexology is an amazing therapy and I love how my clients respond to their treatments.
the holistic therapist was born out of a desire to help and educate people to take control of their own wellbeing and to be able to do that in an affordable and reliable manner. I wanted to unite the two things that really bring me joy, helping people and learning, I constantly strive to develop my own learning and development to bring new techniques, information and treatments to my clients.
