I am a qualified reflexologist and have been practicing for over 20 years. My practice is in St Andrews, Fife, Scotland. Since qualifying I have continued to take practitioner development courses in many areas such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and reflexology, basic counselling, reflexology and the nervous system, facial reflexology, reflexology and the menopause, nutrition, reflexology and cancer and aromatherapy. By taking further courses, I am continually expanding my skills and what I can offer to my clients.
I am also a qualified Level II Reiki practitioner, I have studied herbal medicine and I am a Resilience Training Practitioner.
I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists, UK whose aim is to ensure professionalism in the field of reflexology. Its members must adhere to a Code of Ethics and Good Practice, have current insurance as well as a requirement to complete further practitioner training every year. I am also registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council which is a UK accredited register approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. The register of complementary practitioners was set up to give the UK general public assurance that registered practitioners have completed an approved professional training course and that they continue to develop their practice for the benefit of both their clients and themselves.
Since qualifying as a reflexologist I have lived and worked in several countries around the world where I have been fortunate enough to meet and work with many other complementary therapists and clients. This has given me the chance to learn from a diverse group of people and cultures, thus broadening my range of skills and my overall awareness of both myself and others.
More recently, I trained as a coach at the Institute of Continuing Education, University of Cambridge and I now practice as a coach facilitating people to achieve their goals in lots of different areas of their lives from health and well-being to work, career or life changes. My decision to train as a coach came very much from my work as a reflexologist and my desire to be able to better facilitate people in discovering who they really are, what they desire and opening up the possibility of change. My approach as a coach is person-centred and I believe that the collaborative relationship my client and I build together is the foundation necessary for my clients to achieve their goals and unlock their full potential. I am also a certified Resilience Practitioner able to assist with building and strengthening your ability to cope in an often difficult and stressful world. I am a member of the Association for Coaching, UK.
I continue to study and be curious, as I believe that exploration and learning are life-long processes which enhance one’s happiness and are very empowering.
