"Allow yourself time to relax, time to just sit and just'be'!
Take back control - Recharge Your Mind, Body and Soul.
Be YOU Again!"
I'm Laura and Welcome To My Website. I thought you might like to know a bit about me and how I came to be a complementary therapist.
HDipCT VTCT, MFHT, CNHC registered
LMK Complementary Therapist
Originally from Hanwell in the leafy West London suburb of Ealing, I moved to Cliffe Woods, Rochester in 1996 to live with my now husband. Whilst commuting in to Central London every day to my PA job (which felt very much like the film 'Devil Wears Prada!' - but without the designer labels!), I looked around the train carriage and thought "There's got to be more to life than this!" - the same old pattern of eat, sleep, work, repeat! I knew that there had to be more to it than that. The job was just utterly soul destroying.
In 2000 I had a ‘chance meeting’ with a lovely lady, who is now a very dear friend, that introduced me to healing work. I now know there was no 'by chance' about that meeting - it was obviously meant to be! I started to develop my skills, a process that was put on hold while I took some time out after having my son, but I always longed to return to healing work – I knew it was where I wanted to be. Being introduced to Reiki re-ignited my desire to actually do something about my passion; it was time to take the plunge and become a practitioner. With healing work being my driving force, and with wonderful support from my husband, son, family and friends, I decided to retrain and take a completely different career path.
I managed my retraining whilst working full time, went to college at weekends to study and qualify in Reflexology. I launched my business in 2016 whilst still being a PA and provided therapies in the evenings and weekends, and I eventually went full-time self employed in January 2018.
Having worked as an administrator and Personal Assistant for 30 years, in both the private & public sectors (15 years of which were in the Education sector), I have seen the ever- increasing demands from the workplace. These are getting worse in with the digital age, where we no longer switch off once we leave our place of work, carrying our anxiety and stress (and the detrimental effect these can have on our health) with us 24 hours a day. I can help you to reduce these problems through complementary therapies which include Reflexology, Facial Reflexology, Reiki etc, all of which aim to help you gain relaxation, easing tension and stress, and gaining a greatly improved sense of well-being. My goal is to help you to feel like a human being again....and not like a robot stuck in the cycle of 'eat, sleep, work, repeat.'
Overall, I want to encourage my clients to realise that we need time to relax and recharge our own minds, bodies and souls. If you think about it, you probably recharge your electronic devices more than you recharge yourself! You do...don't you!
Try it for yourself and see. I would love to meet you.

With Best Wishes, Laura
