I was born in Durban and lived in South Africa until 2009. I have a passion for health and wellbeing.
I trained as a nurse in 1986 and then started reflexology after the birth of my third daughter. I have my business as a reflexologist in Whitley Bay.
Having worked in environments with children, patients at the end of their life and also people with dementia, I feel I have gained an appreciation for the different applications of reflexology and it’s benefits.
I enjoy exercise and spending time with my three daughters, aged 31, 30 and 26.
Appointments available Monday to Saturday, 8am until 8pm by arrangement for Home Visits or at my Workplace

What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body.
Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.
What happens when I go for a treatment?
A full medical history will be requested on your first treatment. This information will be kept confidential.
A personalised approach will be taken to tailor the treatment to your needs.
An initial appointment will take an hour and a half, subsequent appointments should be one hour but shorter appointments are available to fit in with your busy life.
Will reflexology help me?
Well trained reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.
Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your wellbeing.
Some people find it works for them – some don’t. The best way to find out is to try it!
The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally.
Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed.
You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving.
You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.
There have been some positive research projects carried out with reflexology; however, as yet, there is not a large enough body of evidence for us to make clinical claims of effectiveness.
With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs. Reflexology may be one of the ways to mitigate the stresses of modern life.
