About Me


After a decade of managing pubs and working in entertainment I finally found my vocation in life after experiencing a course of physiotherapy and massage whilst living in Tenerife.

In 2004 I returned to the UK and trained full time at City of Bristol College gaining ITEC (International Therapy Examinatin Council) diplomas in Holistic Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology. At this time I also completed a first and second degree Reiki course with Louise Chalice. Since then I have gone on to complete ITEC qualifications in Sports Massage, Stone Therapy and Indian Head Massage at Devon Academy of Complementary Therapies. I also travelled to Thailand to train in Thai Massage at the Wat Po Traditional Medical School.

In 2011 I joined the Birdwell Clinic team full time to work alongside our excellent physiotherapists, osteopath and councellors.

I am constantly honing my skills through research and by attending various advanced massage technique courses, this ensures that my knowledge is kept up to date and that I meet the CPD (Continued Professional Development) requirements set by the FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapists) of which I am a member. This certifies that I am fully qualified and insured. I have just completed an 8 day course (2018) in Hands Free Massage at Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork. When it comes to the human body, you can never stop learning!

Although the majority of my work in the Birdwell Clinic is deep tissue/sports based, the wide repertoire of treatments I offer means I can integrate or recommend other practices to tailor a session completely unique to your needs.
