I became interested in Holistic Therapies from an early age and was in my late 20`s when I decided to put that interest into practice. Now I have a career that I absolutely love.
In 1992 I started my training and received my level 3 ITEC diploma in Holistic Therapies. While working in a salon I had the oppotunity to continue my training as a skin care specialist. I then went on working in many salons and spas in Essex where my experience and good reputation grew.
I then gained a place at South Bank University to study the Vodder method of Manual Lymphatic Drainage known as (MLD). This then gave me the opportunity to study LYMPHOEDEMA MANAGEMENT at the Bollingbroke Hospital, under Professor A. Leduc, of the University of Brussels. I was the first Registered Practitioner of this Therapy in South East Essex and am registered with MLDuk, an association of MLD practitioners whose aim is to promote continued training programs, which I continue to this day. I am also registered with the British Lymphology Society and am a member of the Lymphoedema Support Network. In 2016 I took the decision to further my training in Fluoroscopy Guided MLD with the Lymphoedema Training Academy.
I now run a Lymphoedema and Lipoedema Clinic in Brentwood and Basildon, I hope that when you visit me you will feel my devotion for my chosen vocation and that I help to bring peace and calmness to your day.
