About My Simple Steps...

My ambition is to help people with day to day living and to improve quality of life, whatever is thrown at them.  A majority of my clients deal with long term conditions, such as cancer, fibromyalgia, ME and MS.  By working together with a holistic approach, my clients can make choices, whether it be through a more active lifestyle or choosing therapies that relax and ease the symptoms of the condition.  It benefits not only the client, but their families and carers too.  I hold that philosophy for all of my clients, whether or not they are affected by long term conditions - everyone should have an opportunity to have balance in their life.

My approach

I treat every client holistically, helping them to bring balance into their life and getting the most out of every day.  From hectic family life, full on treatment programmes and post injury rehabilitation schedules, everybody has different needs and should be supported appropriately.  I work closely with my clients to ensure a progressive self-management programme can be adopted, that not only suits their lifestyle but improves their quality of life.  I provide services from phased exercise plans and classes, to therapies which restore balance and calm in everyday life.  I have built up knowledge of differing challenges that face people with long term and short term illnesses by working with local and national charities and taking on clients with varied conditions. By working co-operatively, this helps me expand my knowledge and increase my learning.  My main goal is to help people gain confidence, learn about their bodies and to provide them with the tools to not only help them now, but also in the future.

I use my complementary therapies to enhance a person's journey - therapies such as reflexology and reiki take care of the whole body and mind.  I feel it is important for a person to look after themselves physically, mentally and spiritually and I am adept at suiting the therapy to the client and their needs at that time.

I am a member of  The Federation of Holistic Therapists, The Lymphoedema Support Network and National Association of Complementary Therapists in Hospice and Palliative Care.
