I’ve been a full-time complementary therapist since 2004, and in that time have worked with hundreds of people looking to effect positive change in their lives. For years I worked in the corporate world but the stress of office life, combined with a long commute, started to affect my health. I began my well-being journey by having massages to soothe my aching body, and then I decided to give reflexology a go because my therapist told me that it would be of even more therapeutic benefit. Over time my health was restored and my experience inspired me to train as a therapist myself.
I have always worked with a wide range of clients and love the fact that on any day I can be treating children, older people and pretty much every age group in-between. As the benefits of Reflexology are being more widely acknowledged, I’m delighted that I’m getting to work with more members of the medical and scientific community, as well as other therapists, teachers, recruitment consultants, students and an array of other professions.
I believe it’s important that when you come to me for treatment you’re confident that I’m experienced, well qualified and up-to-date with the latest developments in my field. With this in mind I place a lot of emphasis on learning and development. Ongoing professional development is also a prerequisite of membership of the Association of Reflexologists and the CNHC.
Since obtaining my Association of Reflexologists diploma in 2003 I have qualified as an Advanced Reflexologist (ART), Vertical Reflex Therapist (VRT) and RLD practitioner. I also have a Diploma in preconception and maternity reflexology from the London School of Reflexology and a Diploma in Bipolar Reflex Therapy from the Lone Sorensen International Reflexology School. I have trained with some of the leading reflexologists in the world, including Tony Porter, Lynne Booth, Lone Sorensen and Jan Williamson.
My Reiki Master – Practitioner training was with Dr Robert Maida, a former medical doctor.
I am registered with the Government recognised Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) for Reflexology and am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists.
In May 2018, my dream of co-creating a therapist-led healing space was realised when Georgia Cooper and I took over The Old Surgery in Meanwood. Our objective is to create a calm, kind, safe and healing space for our clients and colleagues.
On a more personal level I share my home with my partner Jamie (as well as our two cats Bonz and Tweak) who also runs his hypnotherapy practise from The Old Surgery. We are both fans of the arts, especially live music.

I’ve lived with anxiety for most of my life, with occasional bouts of depression thrown in. It’s been a long journey to recovery and I’ve tried so many different therapies and approaches along the way. Besides prescription medication, hands-on therapies and a daily mindfulness practice, one of the things that’s helped me to manage my anxiety the most has been hypnotherapy. Now I’d like to help others explore how to make the changes they need to lead a more fulfilling life.
My clinical hypnotherapy training spanned 12 months and I trained with the Leeds Hypnotherapy Academy. I’m a full member of the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council.
As well as my hypnotherapy qualification and personal experience of life’s challenges, I hold Level 2 certificates in both Counselling and Mental Health Awareness. As a result, whilst hypnotherapy may be beneficial for a range of issues, I’m particularly interested in helping people overcome anxieties.
In my spare time I’m an artist, photographer and gardener and I’m told I have an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of music! All of these things have also helped me with my own mental well-being.
