About your instruction

Holistic Therapist, Reiki Master Teacher and Guide

Course creator and Instructor



All those years ago, when I was learning Aromatherapy, I was infused with a heartfelt longing to learn more, to become a qualified professional Aromatherapist and able to provide a great quality service to my local community and surrounding areas.  To do this meant I would have to attend college.  That was a huge moment for me.  I had experienced many traumas in my life and this created anxiety states within.  I had done all I could to conquer the anxiety but still it was with me.  So I took a leap of faith, I felt the fear and did it anyway.  I enrolled onto the body massage course that required I take a bus to college and it meant having to use the bus at the same time it was filled with kids from school.  The kids were ok, they were noisy after a long day tied up at school.  My anxiety was immense; it threatened to prevent me going on.  But persistence and determination were my key words.  I wanted to learn Aromatherapy and to be a professional – it was in my heart and mind and so I kept with it.  The first time I entered class I thought I would pass out, but there were people with smiling faces, warm and welcoming and I even recognised some from the classes I had taken.  Learning body massage taught me a lot about how anxiety can cause tension inside the muscles, how lactic acid build up can create pain, and that was the tip of the iceberg.  I studied diligently, completed my course work, case studies and passed my exams; I was astonished because my family had me believe I was most dense and stupid being on the planet.  I guess I was because I had believed them.  But my beliefs had begun to change and my confidence began to grow.  I was able to gain some part time work at a local community centre and the path kept opening up.  Body massage led to study of Aromatherapy and I was getting to provide a great quality service to my community; my dream and my passion brought me to the point of being where I had desired.
