I am specifically trained in the use of complementary therapies in cancer care.
I began my career qualifying as a beauty and complementary therapist in 1994.
In 1998, I started teaching beauty and complementary therapy.
In 2002, I qualified as an adult and further education lecturer and gained a Degree in Education some years later in 2017.
In 2010, I completed a qualification at the Mount Vernon hospital in Middlesex, specialising in using complementary therapies with patients undergoing cancer treatment, while working at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital.
Then, in 2014, I qualified as a counsellor, gaining the level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic counselling.
I now work independently helping cancer patients and those with other long-term health concerns such as multiple sclerosis, chronic pain and stress related conditions using complementary therapies and counselling.
I have written and deliver accredited courses in level 2 and level 3 counselling, workshops on understanding and developing the self, along with CPD courses for holistic therapy.
My core skills are the support, guidance and nurturing of individuals in developing themselves to be the best they can be or simply supporting them through illness.
I hold Fellowship member status with the Federation of Holistic Therapists and I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society.
