I'm Here to Help You

Having spent the first 22 years of my working life in a bank, I was ready for a change of direction. I had always been interested in helping people and enjoyed working one to one with clients to help them with their financial issues.

My Therapist training began with a Diploma in Therapeutic Massage which incorporated Advanced Massage Techniques, Pregnancy Massage and Sports Massage Techniques, and I then went on to take the Reiki First Degree and Reiki Second Degree, which enhanced my intuition and my practice greatly. I began working at Fountains Court Centre for Wellbeing and then also later at the Crown Spa Hotel in Scarborough and Raithwaite Hall in Sandsend, Whitby.

Whilst working at St Catherine's Hospice as a volunteer, I was introduced to Hendrickson Method of Massage and Manual Therapy and once I had trained in this, which took approximately 2 years, it quickly became my go-to treatment for most musculoskeletal complaints, due to the success I was seeing with clients on a regular basis. 

I've since trained in Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage, Indian Head Massage, Balinese Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Reflexology and Acupressure Massage.

In 2016 I trained as a Life Coach and enjoyed this work immensely. I then decided to undertake further training and qualification in order to offer support for some of the more challenging emotional issues that clients were coming to me with. I had worked with an EFT Practitioner myself in 2013 and was astounded at the effectiveness of this seemingly simple therapy.  It had a profound effect on me. This prompted me to train in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) so that I had a solid, well respected, therapeutic technique with which to help clients. I now combine this technique with Life Coaching in Freedom Tapping. EFT is an effective addition to most treatments and it is also a wonderful tool for clients to learn for their own self-help.


 For your assurance, I am fully certified and accredited with EFT International (EFTi, formerly known as AAMET) which is the global regulatory body for EFT.

I have recently furthered my Reiki journey by undertaking the Reiki Master Practitioner Degree, and have plans to complete the Reiki Master Teacher Degree in the near future. 

The combination of therapies that I offer provide an extremely effective solution to help you back to health, whether that be physical, mental or emotional, and to promote your own self healing. I look forward to meeting you.
