I’m a Full Member of the Association of Reflexologists, which is the foremost aspirational and independent professional association for reflexology in the UK. Members of the AoR have some of the highest levels of reflexology qualification in the UK. The letters MAR after my name denote my membership status – a sign of assurance that I have met the strictest standards of reflexology practice, am insured to practise and am committed to continually developing my skills and knowledge.
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. I used to be a Market Research Manager 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 try reflexology because my therapist told me that it would give me a deeper therapeutic benefit. Thanks to regular reflexology and other lifestyle changes my health improved and my experience inspired me to train as a therapist myself.
Since obtaining the 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.
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 and safe 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, Boo and Marley) 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 (such as Reiki) 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.
I am also attuned to Reiki Level 2.
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.
