I’ve been in the massage industry since 1999; first as a massage therapist, then as a massage teacher and for the last 7 years, as the owner of Orchid Massage Academy.
As a teacher, I taught the Level 3 Diploma in massage for 16 years, as well as more advanced CPD massage courses.
While I was teaching, I found it so frustrating that I had to stick to the curriculum, I wanted to teach everything I knew about massage: how to excel as a therapist, the intricacies of giving an exceptional treatment, how to have a successful business – but there just wasn’t time.
I saw therapists struggling with their treatments or with attracting and retaining clients and although I would try to squeeze extra teaching into the class, I used to wish there was a better way to help them.
So,I turned my attention away from teaching massage training courses and now I provide business, marketing mentoring for qualified massage and holistic therapists.
I help therapists to raise the quality of their treatments and attract their ideal clients as well as navigate the challenges that come with building a therapy business.
My mission is to provide solo practitioners with advice, support, motivation, guidance, and inspiration to help them become the exceptional massage therapist they know they can be – with the income to support the life they want to live.
I am devoted to creating successful therapists who make a difference to people’s lives.
I am 100% online, so you can work with me wherever you are in the world. Or, if you fancy a mentoring or training “retreat”, come and see me on the lovely island of Anglesey, Wales for some in-person support and beautiful beach walks.
