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 have personal experience of breast cancer treatment and lymphoedema and this led me to complete the Vodder method of Manual Lymphatic Drainage or MLD.  This is a specialised massage for lymphoedema and Lipoedema. 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.

This is me with my new baby grandson. Bet you didn’t clock the compression garment on my right arm? I became a lymphoedema/MLD therapist after having had surgery for breast cancer in 2002, the result of this was lymphoedema in my arm. There are 4 pillars to the treatment of lymphoedema- compression, good skin care, specific exercises and MLD or simple lymph drainage. This condition will never go away, but can be managed using the 4 pillars.
If you have lymphoedema and are considering MLD then contact me on
