I started my career working as a nursing auxiliary for around 6 years, I worked in mental health, community and general nursing. Whilst working as an auxiliary I went part time so I could train as a Reflexologist in 1998 to 2000 this included many modules from anatomy & physiology, pathology and holistic studies. This led me on a career path to qualify as an ODP (in simpler terms a Theatre Nurse.) For 10 years I assisted surgeons and anaesthetists with the preoperative care (while in theatre) of patients. I specialised in orthopaedic accident and trauma and worked within this area for 10 years at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, QMC Nottingham and finally with Genepool Medical.

Throughout my career I had always kept my interest in reflexology and feel working in surgery has made me a better reflexologist because of the hands on understanding of anatomy and physiology which I have applied to my practice to date. After 21  years of Reflexology I am still fascinated by how the feet really do connect to many areas of the body and in turn can have an amazing effect on many health problems including stress.

My background in health was scientific and fact based, so it took a bit of time after qualifying as a Reflexologist to realise how much difference a treatment can achieve in improving health and it’s positive effect on peoples wellbeing. Over the years I have learned advanced body work, clinical aromatherapy, shamanism, Reiki and other forms of healing, these all work just as well as reflexology.  Years later I am still astounded by the effects that Complementary therapies can have on people. I have developed my own intuitive technique through evidence based practice (trial and error) and always strive to better myself.

At the moment I work Privately in Colwyn bay from my dedicated treatment room at my house and surrounding areas. I also work full-time at Ysbyty Gwenedd ( Bangor Hospital NHS )  as a Cancer and Palliative care Complementary therapist. I help people with a full range of therapies to relax and destress. I also provide pain medication using aromatherapy and have a good track record of good response by patients. I do so much more within this role like helping peripheral neuropathy, sickness and other symptoms from treatment. My practice within this NHS trust is a safe place for patients to come and heal, have time for themselves to rejuvenate and recharge. I feel blessed to be working within this area as a therapist for the NHS within North Wales.
