Caroline returned to the UK in 1994 having spent many years in Jersey, Channel Islands as a legal secretary and travelling the world.  It was her travels to Australia and the Far East that led Caroline to natural remedies and healing through the people that she met along the way.

Caroline started her studies in Complementary therapies with Rosemary Clarke in Bournemouth in 1994 and has been in full-time practice as a Natural Health Therapist since 1995.

Qualifications in Complementary Therapies

Caroline holds internationally recognised ITEC Diplomas in Anatomy, Physiology & Body Massage (1994), Aromatherapy (1995), Reflexology (1996) and an ITEC Certificate in Indian Head Massage (2001).  She has also achieved an IEB Certificate in Thermo Therapy (otherwise known as Hopi ear candling) (2002) and she has been initiated in the Second Degree of the Usui System of Natural Healing in Reiki (2001).  In 2001, Caroline went back to Australia to study the Bush Flower Remedies with Ian White, the Founder.

Upon completion of her ITEC Diploma in Reflexology, Caroline became a member of the Reflexologists' Society and also a Friend of the Association of Reflexologists.  She then sat a further examination to become a Full Member of the Association of Reflexologists (MAR) in 2000 and she has remained a member of the Association ever since.  Caroline frequently attends the Dorset Reflexologists' meetings as part of her CPD (Continued Professional Development).

Carolne has attended many conferences, seminars and workshops over the years all relating to her work.  She also holds many Post Graduate certificates in subjects such as Sports Massage with Sheila Wiggs (Physiotherapist); Hand Reflexology and Auricular Therapy with Beryl Crane; Hand Reflexology with Kristine Walker and Anna Knight; Precision Reflexology with Jan Williamson; Cranial Sacral Therapy in Reflexology plus the 12 cranial nerves and The Occipital Zones in Reflexology with Martine Faure-Alderson; Diet and Nutrition with Stewart Mitchell at the School of Complementary Health in Exeter; HIV/AIDS Awareness at the Mildmay Hospital in London and the Emotional Freedom Technique with Sue Millwood.

In July 2001, Caroline wrote to Colonel Mark Cook, the founder of the Wiltshire-based registered charity "Hope and Homes for Children" to volunteer her services overseas as a Complementary Therapist.  In April 2002, Caroline went to Romania with fellow therapist Angela Lewis to teach Reflexology and Aromatherapy body massage to the carers of the small family homes in Baia Mare in northern Transylvania.  Angela and Caroline taught some basic training in these subjects to a very enthusiastic team out there having had all our course notes translated into Romanian.  A detailed account of our work can be found in "Reflexions", the Journal of the Association of Reflexologists, dated December 2002.

Caroline currently has a large portfolio of clients suffering from a wide range of ailments, many of whom have been having regular treatments to help maintain a stress-free and healthy life for over 20 years!
