My BackgroundI worked as an information scientist in the drug and communication industries for many years then developed a keen interest in complementary therapy. I qualified as a Reflexologist in 2001. The course involved an appreciation of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) meridians on the feet and hands. I then trained in Polarity Therapy, the principles of which I bring into much of what I practise. This also sparked an interest in Āyurvedic approaches to health and well-being.
I was impressed by the beneficial effects of Kundan Mehta's Indian Face Massage and qualified to practise her treatment in 2008. I later went on to learn Āyurvedic Face Massage with the Ayurveda Pura Academy. I also became interested in the benefits of sound from a therapeutic perspective and qualified in 2010 as a Sound Therapist. I have studied new techniques and approaches in all my therapies, incorporating these into treatments where appropriate. More details about my training are mentioned on the relevant therapy pages of this website.
A few years after qualifying, I began teaching the Reflexology Diploma course at Raworth in Dorking, Surrey (sadly no longer in existence). I became responsible for course development as well as one-day workshops for practising reflexologists some of which I have since developed and teach in Edinburgh (see Courses & Workshops page).
I moved back from London to my home town of Edinburgh in 2010.
