After six tough years of working with children with emotional and behavioral problems I decided it was time for a change. But I never had been a nine to five office worker, I wanted to do something meaningful, that would give me a sense of self improvement, reward, and the occasional challenge. I crave these things in my work life, to reach out to people, and help them with their own challenges, in whatever small way I can. My mum, who has long benefited from reflexology treatments for her lingering back pain, was the one to first plant the idea. . And, although I can now see through her ploy to receive unlimited, on demand treatments, I am eternally grateful.
I undertook my training in what I’m sure is the finest reflexology school in England, Maureen Burgess School for Reflexology. After eight months, six detailed case studies, countless kind volunteers to be my guinea pigs, five exams and an endless number of practice hours, I qualified with a Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology.
I am now a recognised member or the Association of Reflexologists (AOR) who not only act as a support to both clients and reflexologists alike but also note the participation in practice, research and personal development of each of their members to ensure that reflexologists in their network are up to date with the best, and most relevant training.
