After working many years in secretarial and admin. work in London, I decided to re-train as a reflexologist. I first did a short 10 week “taster” evening class while still working in London, and it was from there that I was completely convinced of the benefits of reflexology and that this was the direction I had to go in.
I qualified at the Bayly School of Reflexology in February 1994, the first Reflexology School in England, after being trained by Nicola Hall (international author of several books on Reflexology and the Head of the British Reflexology Association). I left my job in London and was offered to work as a Reflexologist in several fitness and beauty salons including Slender You in Bexley and Figure Shapers in Dartford.
Next I decided to train in massage with the International Therapy Examination Council (ITEC) and qualified in May 1997.
In 1998 I was honoured to be asked to join the Whole Person Therapy Trust to work as a Reflexologist and Massage Therapist. It was the experience of a client I had worked on who had Multiple Sclerosis that brought me to their attention. Their work was for clients who had either a long-term illness or who were terminally ill in Kent. These assignments could involve going into a local hospital working on the clients there, sometimes in cancer wards. This is the work I am the most proud of, as I had always particularly wanted to help people with serious illnesses.
