In the early 2000s a dear friend was battling an eventually terminal diagnosis of breast cancer. Through her I became aware of the potential of Reflexology. This strong, stoic, very busy lady, through Reflexology found an inner peace, comfort and a stillness from an over active mind.
I qualified as a reflexologist nearly 10 years ago and I was quickly able to work in a leading London hospital with very vulnerable patients. Following that I had the privilege of becoming the Lead Complementary Therapist and then Manager of a Daycare unit in a London Hospice. This has given me experience in dealing with patients, carers and health care professionals.
During my time at the Hospice I began integrating other methods of working alongside my Reflexology. These included communication and observation skills, Macmillan stress management training, Advanced Care planning and carers support training. I realised that I had developed a very effective way of working that could be shared with clients and other health care professionals. So Tender Touch Therapies is an amalgamation of all my experience to help calm, reassure and support a patients needs together with my belief in professionalism, integrity and quality.
Above all I am passionate about the delivery of my services with Care, Compassion, Competence, Courage and Commitment.
