I spent the first 20 years of my career in the corporate world, working for blue chip companies, in a variety of Marketing roles.
In early 2005, I suffered a prolapsed disc in my lower back and was convinced that stress had a major part to play. I became overwhelmed by a feeling there had to be more to life!
Following spinal surgery, I found myself inexplicably drawn to the wonderful world of Reflexology and enrolled on an ITEC course, studying & completing case studies in my spare time! By July 2006 I was clutching ITEC distinctions in Reflexology, plus Anatomy & Physiology....and the rest, as they say, is history!
In 2011, I took the decision to leave the security of Marketing and follow my heart to become a full time Holistic Therapist. I qualified in Indian Head Massage in 2012 and founded my business Sole to Soul. I am now lucky enough to do what I love everyday, helping & healing wonderful people.
I am constantly looking for ways to improve the service I offer. In 2014, I qualified in Tsuboki Japanese Face Massage - a sublime therapy which is a pleasure to receive and to do! Combining Reflexology with Indian Head or Japanese Face Massage have become increasingly popular "Head to Toe" experiences.
Later that same year I introduced Neal's Yard Organic products to my treatment room - a wonderful, ethical product range which I have total confidence in and that smell & feel fabulous! This was closely followed by the introduction of credit card facilities which my clients have greatly appreciated!
In Spring 2017 I extended my studies with the wonderful trainer Sally Earlam to include Conception Reflexology, followed by the sublimely relaxing Hot Stone Reflexology in Autumn 2017, perfect for the cold winter months!
Last, but by no means least, in my newly refurbished treatment room I have created a tranquil sanctuary to escape the stresses & strains of daily life. Clients often comment that they don't want to leave at the end of their treatment...which is music to my ears!

A wise person once told me that finding a therapist is like choosing a pair of shoes - some fit and some don't! It is very important that you choose the correct therapist for your needs, be they physical, emotional, or spiritual.
