My first experience of the Complementary Health Centre was over 20 years ago, when I attended my first Tai Chi class with Tony Swanson. Little did I know that one day I would be part of the reception team and a Tai Chi Instructor myself.
For many years I have worked within health, social care and community settings. I have had experience of working as a Child Care Trainer in a Romanian Orphanage with Voluntary Services Overseas. To balance this experience I then worked for Mark Warner in lovely Sardinia for a summer season!
In 1985 I worked at the Sanctuary Womans Health Spa for over 6 years . I worked within the therapy team as a Qualified Aromatherapist and also had experience of working within the Reception team, working my way up to the position of Reception manager.
For the past few years I have worked as a Family Support Worker but felt I wanted to move back to professional settings which complimented my future plans .
For the last two years I have been facilitating Community Cookery Sessions as a Cookery Tutor and also running my own Tai Chi classes.
To my delight a position arose within the Reception team and I started in May 2017. It has been a breath of fresh air to work within the Complementary Health Centre and to work alongside and in partnership with staff who are creative , humorous and nurturing towards the patients and clients who access the Centre .
