Hi! So a little about me; I am a mum to three wonderful boys whose life mission it is jump in every muddy puddle in Leicestershire, scoot on ever path and discover all that is currently undiscovered! Our family expanded in March 2019 when we welcomed our little girl into the world. My boys have taken to the addition of many pink things very well! It would be true to say that our four little people ensure my husband and I have something to smile and laugh about every day!
When I'm not knee deep in hot wheels I escape into the garden, I love to garden and spend time outside in the fresh air and sunshine. If it's not the weather to be out then baking is what I will be found doing along with my eldest son who seems to be taking the baking crown off me!
My love for the garden and the many ways in which we can use the vast array of plants that can be found and grown began when I was still a child. I spent warm summer days playing in in my Granny-Anne's garden; it was a place of calm and beauty. The most beautiful plants would be spilling over small walls, lovingly planted flowers, shrubs and herbs would create the most gorgeous aroma. It was a truly glorious place to be.
My love for plants and natures pharmacy became my second love while as I trained and then worked as a primary school teacher for many years. However, as my family grew and my teaching commitment in school became less it seemed a natural path to use the training I had undertaken back in 2006 & 2008 as a Clinical Aromatherapist and Infant Massage Instructor.
I am a member of the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapist’s (IFPA) and trained with the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) to become a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI).
I am now able to combine my love of plants and nature with my passion for education and learning in an area of life I hold dear to my heart - motherhood.
Over the years I have had the privileged of working alongside Health visitors and Midwives, as well as independently practicing aromatherapy, pregnancy massage and delivering baby massage classes and drop in sessions.
I continue to develop my knowledge of clinical aromatherapy, infant massage and positive touch through a wide range of CPD. I have always ensured, and will continue to ensure, that my work & knowledge is based upon research & evidence carried out by international bodies; it is a fascinating area of rapidly expanding research. It is a true passion and one that I would love to share with you.
