About Me

I trained as a nurse in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in the early 1970s and qualified as a midwife in Pembury, Kent in 1978. I continued to work at my nursing studies and now work part time as a Nurse Practitioner. Over time I realised how important it is to treat people holistically and not just concentrate on the symptoms of an illness or disease.  This led me to study a selection of complementary therapies including Reiki,  Aromatherapy, Swedish and Indian head massage, and some aspects of beauty therapy. More recently I have been interested in the psychological aspect of health and well being and have completed an MSc in Integrated Counselling and Psychotherapy. I recently trained as an Meridian Energy Practitioner utilising the Emotional Freedom Technique.

I have personal experience of breast cancer treatment and lymphodema and this led me to complete the Vodder method of Manual Lymphatic Drainage or MLD.  This is a specialised massage for lymphoedema. I update this training every 2 years and arrange and facilitate updates for other Vodder practitioners in conjunction with Professor Hildegard Wittlinger from the Vodder School in Austria.

I am registered as a MLD practitioner with MLD UK, and the Dr Vodder Schools in both Austria and North America. I am also registered with the Royal College of Nursing and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

If you have had cosmetic surgery MLD is a must in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

I use a Hivamat for my lymphoedema and Lipodema clients and am delighted to say it really makes a difference!

It’s hard living with Lipoedema. MLD can really make a difference too.
