‘One of my favourite mantras is “Your Health is your Wealth”. Over the years I have listened to what my body is telling me and have taken the appropriate action or inaction. I have always wanted to support others similarly, to help them to move through their lives in a healthy, loving and balanced way.

I have seen clients achieve their goals after acknowledging the compassionate and nurturing healer that is within all of us. I have witnessed the power within my clients, as they journey through their illness and access the strength and resilience within themselves, enabling them to emerge on the other side healthy and balanced. I have specialised in maternity care, cancer care, blood pressure problems, obesity, asthma, and anxiety issues. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with my students, always encouraging professionalism, integrity, and compassion.

Now that reflexology is becoming recognised, it is even more essential that practitioners maintain this level of professionalism going forward. I am determined to work towards integrating reflexology successfully with mainstream medicine and promoting an awareness of the importance and benefits of holistic health and wellbeing.’
