I’ve been practising reflexology since I qualified from The London School of Reflexology in 2010. Before I chose to study reflexology, I was working as a PA in human resources and had decided that 9-5 office life wasn’t for me. I started volunteering at the mental health charity, MIND, helping out with their adult education initiative. This is where I learned of the effectiveness and excellent benefits of reflexology and decided to study it.
After qualifying as a reflexologist, I left my job as a PA in HR and began working as a Personal Assistant to someone with disabilities. This was a great job and something I felt well suited to. Before setting up my own reflexology practise, I wanted to travel and study a bit more. I spent a year altogether travelling around India, volunteering as an English teacher and studying various healing methods.
On my return, I completed a year as a reflexologist at Neal’s Yard Remedies Graduate Clinic, and I started my own mobile reflexology business giving treatments at people’s homes and at various workplaces and events.
In 2015, I began working as a Freelance Writer. Writing has been a passion of mine since I was young, after I read the book ‘Sheep Pig’ by Dick King-Smith and wrote him a letter and got one back! In 2018, I started working as a Support Assistant for people with learning disabilities, something I still do and which I find a great job for me.
I now practise reflexology from my therapy room at home in Herne Hill. I am passionate and knowledgeable about nutrition and women’s health, particularly the menstrual cycle. I like to combine my treatments with red heat lamp sauna therapy if suitable for the client (I use an infrared lamp on the feet during treatments). This helps with detoxification, relaxation, healing and grounding. It also provides warming and stimulating colour therapy.
