Getting to know your Therapist:

My journey to becoming a complementary therapist dates back to being a child when someone very close to me used complementary therapy as a way of managing a long term health condition when conventional medicine could not find any way of helping the managment of their condition. It provided them with some relief and a better quality of life. Moving on, I found I had my own  challenges and started to realise to live a full , happy and healthy life we all need different things to help us along the way. This included taking 'Time Out' and looking at the root of issues rather than going for a' quick fix'. Alongside that, I came to the conclusion that'no one size fits all' and often we need to think outside the box , looking at the all the factors surrounding a person to support them to access a life in wish they wish to be part of.  Therefore holistic therapy seemed an obvious route for me! However, that wasn't before training as a nursery nurse, working with those with additional needs at the Royal Blind School, being part of a health visiting team, developing my skills as part of the  NHS Infant Feeding Team  , studying again!, getting married, having 2 beautiful children and becoming a very proud auntie of 4. Life is busy but good busy! Working part-time and raising my young family seems to be a good combination for me.

I currently manage my working days from my homes studio  and working alongside local charities/ services  to bring therapy to those who may otherwise find therapy difficult to access. At times I also  spend time facilitating  pop up sessions /blocks of baby & story massage sessions within  local areas often within education/care settings.  My events page will keep you updated as to where I am and when !

I will look forward to meeting you if you access any of my therapies and I will  look forward to hearing your 'Story'.

In the mean time please feel free to contact me directly to discuss any of the treatments offered or to book an appointment or activity. 

Best wishes Jade
