Qualifications Backgound & Training
A Brief Background
I have many years of experience having trained as a beauty therapist with City & Guilds way back in 1990, which included massage therapy. From there I worked in salons, spas (including The Sanctuary in Covent Garden) & health clubs both in the United Kingdom and Sydney Australia gaining invaluable industry experience & adding to my treatment repertoire.

In 2003 I began working as a freelance therapist treating my clients in their own homes and 5 Star hotels as well as working in the corporate sector providing on site massage to city workers, helping to reduce work place stress.

During this time I have continued to refine my skills by attending regular workshops & training courses to enhance my skills in the areas I love which are massage & skin care. These are the two strands of my work which have been the most popular & hold the most interest & these are now the main areas I focus on.

Mission Statement
I absolutely adore my job! Especially the stress relieving and nurturing elements of my work which are so needed in todays manic world. Just hearing my clients snoring away happily on my treatment table, falling into a peaceful still space or for the time we are together letting go of life's worries stresses & melting into bliss is immensely soul satisfying. It's the reason I do what I do.

I also have a passion for health & wellness and bring as much nourishment to my treatments that I possibly can. It is the greatest of privileges to work with my wonderful clients & I look forward to treating you.
