I started off my career as a dental nurse in 1996. I trained part time in the Dublin Dental Hospital while working full time in private practice. I enjoyed my job it was both interesting and challenging no two days were ever the same. I loved the interaction with the patients young and old alike. I worked for nine years as a dental nurse but felt I needed a change, it was then I started work as a care assistant in St Michael's House with adults and children with special needs. I found this to be a very rewarding job. I worked in preschool, day care and residential settings.
I've always had an interest in the body, mind and soul connection, how it works, and how negative experiences or negative thinking especially as a child can impact our lives. This impact can last into adulthood and cause both physical and emotional issues. I decided to undertake a course in addiction studies an area I would like to eventually incorporate with my holistic studies.
I have a very busy home life with many family commitments and I needed time to myself, I was naturally drawn to holistic therapies for stress relief and relaxation. When my only sibling (Alison who had special needs) passed away it was a life changing experience for me. After that I had a real spiritual awakening and decided that the time was right, I put all my fears aside and I decided to embark on a career as a holistic therapist.
I've always had a very strong desire to help people in any way I can. It's this lifelong desire to help others and interest in holistic therapies that has led me to where I am today working as a reflexologist and holistic therapist. I truly believe in the power of reflexology and how working different pressure points on the foot can assist in restoring equilibrium to the whole person, rather than just treating the prevailing symptoms.
Upon completion of my reflexology diploma I set up a treatment room and practice from home. In doing this I can spread my love for reflexology and all things holistic and in the process it enables me to help as many people as I can. I plan to continue my holistic studies and have already completed Hot Stone Massage, Indian Head Massage and Reiki Master level and Hopi Ear Candling. I recently completed a course on FRT Functional Reflex Therapy. This programme has been specially developed with additional needs and Autism in mind. I hope to provide workshops for parents , grandparents and older siblings to use the rainbow relaxation method themselves at home.
As a holistic therapist I hope to offer a space that is inviting, relaxing, and a nurturing experience for the body, mind and soul.
