I have been a massage practitioner since 2004, with wide ranging clinical experience and particular specialisms in treating pregnant women and people who are currently or have previously undergone treatment for cancer. I have 8 years experience working with clients at North Devon Hospice.
Having qualified as a solicitor and spent a number of years working as a lawyer, I decided this really wasn't the career for me. I wanted to be able to interact with people on a more personal level, so I retrained in complementary healthcare. For me, this was absolutely the right decision. The job I do now gives me enormous satisfaction. I love working closely with my clients on an individual basis helping them move towards a healthier, pain free life.
I am also involved in teaching the massage and soft tissue therapists of the future - I am an Assistant Tutor on the BTEC Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapy Diploma taught by Anna Maria Mazzieri at the Soft Tissue Therapy School in Exmouth, a guest tutor with the Devon School of Massage & Bodywork and offer individual or small group CPD classes and mentoring.
In my spare time I enjoy running, although having only started running in my forties I understand the need to find a balance between your sporting aims and the realities of your body and lifestyle.
I am a member of the British Complementary Medicine Association, the Federation of Holistic Therapists and the Association of Physical and Natural Therapists.
