I am married and live in Wormit, Fife. I have been a practising therapist since 1988.
My background is in education. I have taught and worked both at home and abroad.
I have always been interested in medical and health issues. I relate well to people and enjoy helping them. Therefore, I jumped at the opportunity to learn reflexology when the opportunity arose. I gained my diploma in 1988 and did the advanced course the following year. I also hold a HND in aromatherapy and massage. I have a B.Sc. degree in Complementary Therapies.
I hold certificates in Facial and Abdominal reflexology, polarity and magnet therapies from the Scottish School of Reflexology(SSR).
Besides having my own practice, I was a senior lecturer with the Scottish School of Reflexology for 14 years and have also taught complementary therapies at an advanced level at college.
I have worked in a health setting, helping patients with mental health problems and also cancer and long-term illnesses.
Since practicing complementary therapies, I have been on various committees including student mentor with The Scottish Institute of Reflexology (SIR) and been part of the education and training group within the B.C.M.A. (British Complementary Medicine Association).
I am a member of the International Federation of Reflexologists (IFR) and hold full insurance for all the therapies.
Aromatherapy and Reflexology can benefit everyone whether in good health or their health requires improvement.In our increasingly stressful, often impersonal world, massage is being rediscovered as renewing, non-invasive form of communication through touch. It is excellent for helping a wide range of stress related disorders including headaches, insomnia, hypertension, inflammatory skin disorders, and pre-menstrual syndrome and menopausal problems. can help boost the immune system and relieve the aches and pains of rheumatism and backache, as well as providing some comfort for osteoarthritis.
