I qualified with a VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology in 2008 from East Surrey College. My ‘lineage’ is 3 steps away from the wonderful Eunice Ingham, dubbed the mother of modern day Reflexology.
Reflexology is a body-work technique applied to the feet or hands to stimulate specific ‘reflex’ points which map out the whole body on the feet. The goal is to bring the body back into balance physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I specialise in foot reflexology, but can adapt to treat the hands if the feet are contra-indicated.
Reflexology may help to relieve anxiety and tension, encourage relaxation, improve mood and aid sleep, though some people use it to help them cope with more specific health challenges. Reflexology is often used alongside conventional care in hospices, hospitals and other healthcare settings, to help support patients with a variety of conditions.

Tuning Fork Therapy
I qualified with Debbi Walker of Suara Sounds in 2016. I have been in love with sound healing since a dear friend invited me along to a ‘sound bath’ in January 2011. Since then I have experienced many group gong bath sessions, and gradually built up my personal collection of tuning forks and singing bowls. My personal experience of sound healing is that it enhances my mood, my state of well-being, and increases my ability to relax and release what no longer serves me.
A tuning fork treatment is gentle yet powerful, and is an effective way to access the benefits of vibrational sound healing. During a treatment the forks will be used in the aura and also on the physical body to induce a deep meditative state, with the intention to dissipate energy blockages and promote healing at the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. I work intuitively with the selection and placement of the forks, and each session is unique.
I have many sets of Tuning Forks, both weighted and unweighted. The weighted forks I use on the foot reflex points, or on the body for example at the chakra points. The unweighted forks are more audible, and are used around the body, in the auric field.
In my experience the forks have yielded some very interesting results, and clients have been able to access a state of deep relaxation. You can read some of the testimonials here. Please also click the Suara Sound logo below to view some of the research done by Debbi Walker.
I received Reiki I & II attunements in 2009 & 2011, and an ‘Atlantean Reiki’ attunement in 2012.
Reiki is an energy healing technique of Japanese origin, and when translating from a spiritual context Rei can be defined as the higher intelligence that guides the ongoing creation of the universe, and Ki means vital life-force energy (chi). A reiki treatment is non-invasive and may be hands-on or hands off.
During a reiki treatment you might experience a range of sensations, from heat, coolness, waves of energy movement, a gentle tingling / prickling sensation, and you may see colours or images in your mind’s eye.
I qualified in 2007 with a VTCT Certificate in Swedish Massage from East Surrey College.
Swedish massage is the most commonly practised massage technique, widely recognised for the positive effects on mind, body and spirit. This traditional form of massage incorporates effleurage strokes, petrissage (kneading), and tapotement (tapping / striking).
I’m currently a student of Lucis College in Dorking and am insured to practise crystal therapy as a student. I’ll be able to offer this treatment to clients later this year.
I’m also a Member of the Association of Reflexologists (AOR):
