I am originally from an IT Business & Corporate background, I had for a long time enjoyed receiving complementary therapies, to help with the stressful life style I had been leading – my preferred treatment was Reflexology, as I felt so calm and de-stressed for a significant time post treatment – I was able to sleep better and therefore cope with the pressures I dealt with daily.
It had always been in the back of my mind, that one day further in the future, I would re-train in something totally different to the Corporate world, to have a more balanced lifestyle, something to phase me into retirement (or semi-retirement) and I knew it would be Reflexology, because it interested me so much.
In September 2012, I found a Level 3 Diploma course was running near to me in Norwich, so I enquired and before I knew it, I was on the course and doing business projects, researching the history of Reflexology and completing case studies and practice treatments and realising that my dream was going to happen sooner than I thought. After qualifying the following June, I established my business in September 2013, initially offering solely Reflexology. To maintain professional membership with the organisations that I belong to, it is a requirement to do a specified amount of annual CPD (Continual Professional Development), which I always look forward to, as I love learning new modalities and it means that I can then offer my clients additonal treatments.
I feel very passionate about what I do, so when I was asked I jumped at the chance to become a Teaching Assistant on the Reflexology Diploma course, where I qualified, and have since had the opportunity to teach the course and now also enjoy delivering CPD workshops for qualified Reflexologists.
Since 2019, in addition to running Sensitive Soles Therapies I have been involved with, and a Therapist for, a Not for Profit Organisation, now a CIC (Community Interest Company), TherapyAid, who provide NHS approved supportive therapies, to Unpaid Carers in Norfolk.
I really look forward to meeting you and helping you to enjoy the many benefits of the treatments I offer.
