I trained with the International Institute of Reflexology and gained a level 3 Diploma. That entitles me to be a member of the Association of Reflexologists who promote the professional standards of Reflexology at the highest level. Although the profession is self-regulated, when you see the initials IIR and MAR, you know that the practitioner is professional, adhering to a strict code of conduct, holds a current First Aid Certificate and is fully insured. I also commit to Continuing Professional Development.
I have a Diploma in Maternity Reflexology - I trained with Suzanne Enzer who is the pioneering expert in this field. This enables me to work confidently with couples who are planning to start a family, sub-fertility problems, pregnancy, post-natal health as well as babies. Realizing that I had the ability to help couples on their journey to conception, I decided to train under Seren Fertility and the wonderful Barbara Scott, in very specific Reproductive Reflexology and I am now a member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists.
I decided to train as a Reflexologist after a career working with children. I wanted to continue in a caring role but something that allowed me to help adults and children in a holistic way, helping with all areas of life. It was my own experience of reflexology during pregnancy that helped me to decide upon reflexology. With 3 young children of my own I understand the challenges and stress that modern life can present, and the need to take control.
