I have been a Complementary Health Care Practitioner since 2010 and passed with distinction the Foundation Degree in Complementary Therapies for Clinical Practice at Staffordshire University in 2013.
This qualification provided me with Advanced Aromatherapy and Reflexology knowledge and skills (Level 5) but also an understanding of the importance of Complementary Therapies alongside conventional medical care .
I am a full member The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) and Association of Reflexologist and I am also listed on an Accredited Voluntary Register (AVR), and hold a full DRB check. As a result, any treatments I provide maybe covered by private medical insurance (please check with your provider).
In addition to qualifications in Aromatherapy, Reflexology (Reflexology Lympathtic Drainage, Vertical, Auricular, Hand and Foot) I am also skilled to provideTherapeutic , Acupressure and Pregnancy massage. I am also qualified as an instructor in IMPACT for Wellbeing programme. This programme providing skills or self help techniques which can support periods of anxiety and stress and full Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Master practitioner.
During my career as a therapist I have supported many clients with various conditions and symptoms ranging from long term conditions to some clients being treated for or recovering from cancer.
I have also had the opportunity to work with my local GP on a Complementary Therapy pilot with the aim of improving patients l health and wellbeing enabling them to live with their long term condition.
As a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists I have to complete continuous professional development and attend many workshops and seminars during the year to gain further understanding and awareness of new skills and techniques. Some of these to date re how to adapt Massage and Reflexology for Cancer Care, Aromatherapy for Pregnancy. I also spent 2 years supporting the Douglas Macmillan Hospice in Stoke on Trent to which I attend quarterly meetings to understand how care is changing.
