Welcome to my website. I offer a range of complementary therapies that come under four categories – Aromatherapy, Hypnotherapy, Acupuncture and Aesthetics. I have a special interest in women’s health and well-being, and my treatments reflect this. I can combine techniques to suit your needs - hence “Fusion Therapies”.
I started my career journey in the 1980s, qualifying as a Registered Nurse and subsequently as a Midwife. I began working as a practice nurse in 1996, and in 2007 decided to follow my life-long interest in complementary therapies by completing a Diploma in Clinical Aromatherapy with the world renowned Penny Price Academy www.penny-price.com. I have run a private aromatherapy practice alongside my nursing role for the past 14 years, and offer a variety of different treatments associated with this.
In 2008, I was introduced to Hypnotherapy when I observed a psychiatrist colleague using it with a patient. I was fascinated, and after questioning him at length, was persuaded to look into suitably accredited courses. I gained a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy a year later, and have continued to train in additional psychotherapeutic techniques. I am also qualified in EFT, Anxiety Management and Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture amongst other subjects. In 2018, I qualified as a "Parks Inner Child Therapist".
I am passionate about my therapy work and continue to update my knowledge on an ongoing basis, as I believe in "Lifetime Learning".
I retired from the NHS in 2020, and continue to offer bespoke treatments that combine the therapeutic properties of essential oils, massage, acupuncture and hypnotherapy - with the added treat of “pampering”, to leave you relaxed, refreshed and with a sense of wellbeing.
I hold an Enhanced DBS certificate, and you can be assured that your personal information, together with anything that you disclose to me will remain confidential.
I live in rural South Derbyshire with my husband, and am blessed with two lovely (now adult) daughters. In my spare time, I am a leader with Girl Guiding, and currently run 3 units of girls. I also volunteer with a Mental Health charity in Herefordshire that provides therapeutic contact with (very friendly) goats, and other small animals.
