Having graduated University in 1997 with an Honours degree in Psychology, and whilst pondering my future, I found myself employed by a local paediatric ward, in a position that I unexpectedly loved. It wasn’t long before I returned to student life, this time to study as a paediatric nurse at Kings College London.
In a career spanning 20 years, I am blessed to have worked with children and their families across a variety of specialities and locations including large London based teaching hospitals, charitable organisations, and internationally in India and Nepal, having independently undertaken two extended periods overseas as a volunteer offering humanitarian aid.
A passion for all things alternative was sparked early in my career, with my interest in the benefits of living a holistic lifestyle intensifying during an incredibly challenging period of illness 14 years ago. I took a year out, unknowingly embarking on an altogether different journey. A journey of healing and self-discovery, investing time usually spent caring for others, focusing on my own health, visiting healers, therapists and wellbeing specialists, deepening knowledge and developing the passion that had been smouldering deep within … the flame was lit …
With first-hand experience of the impact of all things natural on my own health and wellbeing, a radical reassessment of life was needed. I quickly changed direction, specialising in paediatric complex and palliative care, whilst simultaneously retraining in order to achieve my new-found ambitions. I have been a successful, qualified reflexologist and reiki practitioner for 12 happy years alongside my nursing career.
More recently, inspired by mental health issues and the desire to nurture a lifelong passion, I chose to move away from a full time career to focus energies into the development of two new ventures: a successful hemp-based business with my husband, and a dream that has long manifested into being … Reflexology Space London … A calm and tranquil space designed to support health and well-being.
