A brief background

My qualifications include: Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy; VTCT Level 3 in Reflexology with a Specialist Diploma in Maternity Reflexology;  Diploma in Indian Head, Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage (with Facial Acupressure);  Registered Midwife;  BS(c) Community Practitioner - Health Visiting and BS(c) Psychology .


Life can be stressful and sometimes we all need to share our troubles or encourage ourselves to take some 'time out' to switch off and re-charge.  I work as a holistic therapist and can provide therapeutic counselling or treatments  which promote relaxation.

Counselling is particularly helpful if you feel the need to talk; feel heard and not alone.  If we hold onto feelings, there is a possibility that this could lead to psychological difficulties, such as stress; anxiety and depression.

 I adopt an integrative approach to Counselling and work alongside you to overcome obstacles and challenges.  

I am a registered member of the BACP and ASIIP, which means I work within a safe, ethical framework.


 Stressful lives often lead us to have disturbed sleeping patterns and experience tension, which can be felt within the body.  Unfortunately, if this is not acknowledged, physical illness can develop.  

Furthermore, research has shown that there is a direct correlation between mind and body, whereby one can influence the other.  I understand this link because I have attained a Psychology Degree and also come from a Medical background (having worked as a Midwife and Health Visitor).  

The therapies I offer help to create balance within the body, whereby I take a holistic approach and treat clients individually to address their own needs.

A health questionnaire is completed to enable me to achieve this (a privacy policy is in place, following GDPR).

I am fully insured and meet high professional standards.

The treatments I offer mean that there is no need to get undressed and you could experience complete relaxation in the comfort of your own home!


My Services

I am a mobile practitioner who lives in Thame and travels to surrounding areas.

An infection control certificate has been optained following covid-19 and I also use the required PPE.  

Reflexology 

This is a relaxing, non-invasive treatment which leaves you feel truly pampered.  The health benefits are a bonus!  I treat people with sinus issues and digestive complaints (IBS/constipation) and have helped with mobility issues affecting the hips/knees - or joint inflammation and oedema.  Sports injuries can lead to pain in  the foot/heel and there can be strains from muscles/ligaments.   The power of Reflexology is underestimated until you have tried it and then you realise it is more than just a massage.  Clients have reported feeling that tension has reduced instantly and are often aware of tiredness as the healing process begins.  Positively, an improvement in sleeping patterns often occurs and clients have expressed that they feel they can manage any pain/discomfort more effectively.  I strive to make a difference to a persons health and well-being.

I use a specialist Reflexology chair, however, if you would prefer to use your own reclining chair/bed,  that is absolutely fine.

Indian Head, Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage

 This is a beneficial treatment as although this therapy began as simply Indian Head Massage it has been expanded to include the other areas where we tend to harbour tension.  A significant number of clients experience holding onto stress in the Neck and Shoulder area.  This could also be related to  posture or remaining in one position, for example sitting at a desk for a length of time.  There are many other advantages such as stimulating hair growth; circulatory and lymphatic stimulation.  This form of massage is very kind to hair but hair styles will be disturbed!  I also use a safe, essential oil to enhance the experience but of course is optional if you would rather have dry hair.  This relaxing treatment introduces elements of Reiki as it primarily focuses on the three higher chakra's - mind, body and spirit - as a means of balancing.   I use a specialist chair and you remain fully clothed.

Maternity Reflexology

I have a specialist qualification which covers pre-conception (which is beneficial if you are struggling to conceive); antenatal (following 12 weeks gestation), which is helpful to ease pregnancy related ailments (e.g. nausea/backache /insomnia).  

Clients often choose Reflexology to prepare the body for labour and it is thought to help with pain relief and the duration of labour!  Postnatally, Reflexology can aid sleep when the body craves rest;  improve breastfeeding lactation and help the body to return to its pre-pregnancy condition.

Hand Reflexology

The hands and feet both have pressure points which represent parts of the body.  Clients have expressed that this treatment is beneficial for stiff arthritic joints and that hand massage helps them release tension and loosens the ligaments.  Hand Reflexology can be carried out on its own or in addition to the other treatments.  Clients have benefited from finding out which parts of the hand relate to different parts of the body - and this enables them to self-treat.  This  is particularly useful as a number of people are not mobile enough to reach their own  feet - plus it's not always acceptable to be massaging your feet in the company of others!

Facial Acupressure 

Pressing certain reflex points stimulates circulation to the facial skin and promotes lymphatic flow and removal of toxins.  Some of my clients  have shared that this treatment helps with reducing sinus issues and headaches.  Energy  levels and the flow of Chi can be improved while a person can feel some of the stress and anxiety which they hold onto,  melt away (which often results in an improvement in sleeping patterns).

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Relaxation is an important part of relieving the mind of stress and anxiety.  

However, sometimes there is a need to explore our worries and thoughts in a confidential, safe space.  I will work alongside you on your therapeutic journey, and listen; support and encourage you to overcome the difficulties and challenges which you are facing.  Therapy is also an opportunity for you to find out more about yourself and your behavioural responses. Insight is gained, which gives you freedom of choice to move through life differently.

It can be beneficial have some  ‘me time’  so that we feel more able to cope with life’s challenges.  Taking care of  ourselves is often overlooked and  consequently affects well-being negatively.


You can choose what will benefit you most….‘switching off’ or sharing your worries and exploring difficulties.
