About me

After 9 years in the RAF and, over 20 years in the aviation industry I had been looking to change my career for some time. 

It was after considering having Reflexology myself and not really knowing much about it, that made me initially started looking into it on the Internet.

Google results gave me info on the best training around at the time, (a level 5 diploma in practitioner reflexology).

When I started reading about it, I was absolutely fascinated! I signed up and got the last place on the course and instantly thought, this was meant to be!  Fast forward a few years plus a lot of hard work and here I am living the dream! I love what i do and i never thought that I would ever be saying that!

 

I have contemplated many career changes over the years, always in search of "finding me" and they hadn't come to much!

I have always been a determined soul, and sometimes, it hasn't always worked out, but that's all part of life experience isn't it! and it's the up's and downs of life that makes us who we are!

 

So here I am, "I found me" and I am being the best reflexologist I can be!

 

What's my value? I can't put a figure on it, I am still learning every day!

 

What's my worth? I am worthy of everything in abundance! (Louise Hay, you can heal your life, 1984)

 

So, What makes me Unique? 

I believe it is my ability to connect to people with (dare I say it, yes, I do!) with positive healing energy! :)
