Thanks for stopping by and for your interest in my work. I help women from the onset of their periods, through pre-conception, pregnancy/post-natally, through to the peri-menopause to nurture their wellbeing, helping them to improve problematic symptoms, address the underlying causes, release stress and find balance. I’m Northamptonshire’s only Fertility, Hormonal & Reproductive Health specialist, blending Reflexology, Mind-Body & Energy therapies & Yoga to support my clients. As well as specialising in Fertility, I also uniquely blend these modalities to support women struggling with problematic periods, stress & tension as well as mums to be, new mums and their babies.
My wellbeing journey
I’ve personally faced a number of health and wellbeing challenges over the last 30 years so I understand how all encompassing it can be. I’ve struggled with crippling stress and anxiety, a 5 year fertility battle (with a thyroid cancer diagnosis and treatment in the midst of it all), 3 unsuccessful rounds of IVF, early miscarriage & a further baby loss before an eventual successful round of treatment in Greece. I’m now a mum to two young boys with my second conceived naturally 6 months after my eldest was born. I also understand all too well the challenges that can come with being pregnant, and as a new mum. But I also understand from experience how powerful complementary therapies can be when the body, mind and spirit find themselves out of balance.
Turning my passion into a mission
When I was struggling with my wellbeing I found the constant googling, reading and researching pretty exhausting. Though I found some great therapists to support me, it would’ve been so helpful to have found someone sooner who really understood what I was going through. I encountered so many women on similar journeys, struggling with problematic wellbeing symptoms, or hiding their fertility challenges, who were often incredibly stressed, exhausted (or both) juggling a busy work life too. I started to see that there was a real gap in terms of space for these women to come and feel listened to, nurtured and supported and start to explore some of the underlying causes of/impacts on their wellbeing, particularly around period health and fertility. Reflexology was the natural choice for my initial training when I decided to leave behind my 20+ year career in business and early on I knew I wanted to specialise in women’s health and bring together all those years of personal experience and the specialist knowledge & skills I developed.
How my service has evolved
I’ve always been passionate about learning and personal development and getting the best results for my clients and offer a blend of therapies for a truly holistic approach to addressing wellbeing concerns:
- ‘Reproflexology’ (a specialist form of Reflexology for Fertility (including IVF/Assisted Conception) & Menstrual Health)*
- Fertility Coaching incorporating Fertile Body Method (a mind-body approach combining hypnosis, solution-focussed therapy and cognitive behavioural approaches)*
- Menstrual Mentoring*
- Mindful Reflexology for relaxation, stress and anxiety
- Gentle Release Therapy* (Advanced practitioner)
- Facial Acupressure Therapy
- Maternity and Post-Natal Reflexology & ‘New Mummy Hub’ wellbeing sessions*, including treatments for babies & tuition for new mums in baby reflexology, massage and Gentle Release Therapy*
*I’m the only Holistic Therapist in Northamptonshire offering these services
I’m also currently completing my Yoga Teacher training (RYT200), in tandem with training focussing specifically yoga to support those undergoing menstrual health and/or Fertility challenges/IVF.
Being able to offer a number of services online means that living outside of Northamptonshire needn’t be a barrier to accessing my help.
