A little about me and how I fell in love with Reflexology…
I’m not use to talking about myself, so bear with me! When I was around 16 years of age, whilst at a dancing boarding school, I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Following many mis-diagnosis, a lovely consultant found what was wrong and gave me some advice. After reading up on PCOS, I found there is no cure, just medication to suppress the condition and help maintain hormones. The biggest worry for me (even at that age) was the information that I might not be able to conceive. This made me look into natural remedies and treatments available, as I definitely wanted to know what I was putting into my body and not just suppress things. This is where my fascination began!
I found out the long way, that dancing professionally was definitely not for me and when a career adviser came to give advice at the boarding school, I informed her I wanted a career in Complementary Therapies, as I wanted to help people. Let’s just say she was a little surprised, but she was very helpful!
From there, I went on to do A levels so that I could go to University to study Complementary Therapies and Complementary Medicine. Through all the years studying, the modality that struck a chord with me the most was Reflexology.
The feedback after providing each treatment was just so amazing. From clients coming to the college as a student, to family and friends, to clients whilst studying at a different university, to attending events like an RAF summer ball, to the current day… Every treatment and every client have been completely different. I have learnt and continue to learn from the variety of ailments and conditions presented to me and love every minute.
Now 22 years down the line I have 3 wonderful children with my very supportive Husband and a growing passion for Reflexology and helping as many people as I can using it!
