I am an experienced complementary therapist working from a treatment room in my home since 2006. I offer massage, reflexology and auricular acupuncture to reduce stress and promote relaxation.
Over 12 years of working with a wide range of clients I have continued to develop my practice and consolidate my intuitive and practical skills to benefit clients' overall health and well-being.
My voluntary work includes :- training volunteers in Hand, Arm and Shoulder Massage (HASM) with British Red Cross; offering HASM to vulnerably housed people with mental health conditions; offering holistic therapies at the Teenage Cancer Trust 'Find Your Sense of Tumour' conferences; offering therapies at FABcamps (activity breaks for bereaved military families). I have worked with people recovering from drug and alcohol abuse as well as people with severe neurological conditions.
I am passionate about my work and inspired by seeing people's improvement in well-being. I am very excited about the opportunity to combine my skills and my love of travel to volunteer with Healing Hands Network in Sarajevo to work with people who are suffering the after-effects of a very cruel war.

Event details

Complementary therapies in Sarajevo

This is the first time I have taken my skills overseas and I feel very honoured that I will be working, alongside other volunteer therapists, with Healing Hands Network, a self-funding charity in Sarajevo. I will be there for 2 weeks to help those affected by the longest bloodiest siege in history. The team offer support in the HHN clinic in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and several outreach locations to people suffering after-effects of the Balkan War.
