gaining a BSc. Hons. Degree in Biological Sciences at the University of
Exeter, I spent eight years working for Reuters as a Data Analyst. It
was during this time that I first became aware of complementary
therapies, when I finally found a cure through Health Kinesiology for a
serious wheat allergy. In 1995 I began learning Reflexology, Crystal
Therapy and Aromatherapy, and soon found I had discovered my true
vocation. I became a full time professional therapist in 1998 working in
Axminster, Exeter and Tiverton. Then I spent over nine years as a
therapist in Barnstaple, and opened my own successful Violet
FlameTherapy Centre, I finally ended the daily two hour commute and
traffic jams when the Barnstaple council pedestrianised the road I
worked on. I now work at a more relaxed pace in my home town of
Tiverton. Since 1995 I have added considerably to my qualifications,
which are listed below.

is a moderately firm massage, which includes massage of the back,
shoulders, neck, legs, arms, stomach, hands and feet, with a wide range
of healing aromatic essential oils to choose from. In 1996 I gained the
top grade of the class in the I.T.E.C. aromatherapy qualification.
Following that qualification I completed extra remedial massage training
with the Stewart Mitchell School of Complementary Therapies in Exeter,
Fragrant Earth in Glastonbury and with a Cornish massage school, near
Penzance. That training has allowed me to offer remedial massage for
sore or pulled muscles, back ache and sports injuries. I frequently
offer a combination of back, shoulders or leg massage with Bowen therapy
for the runners and fitness practitioners in my local area.
Fee - £30.00 per hour.

Flower and Gem Essence Therapy
Edward Bach believed that physical disease is caused by emotional and
mental stress. He developed 39 therapeutic flower remedies for emotional
and psychological well-being, the most widely known of these being
"Rescue Remedy". Since the 1930s many other flower essence
manufacturers have developed their own ranges, including of course Gaia
Essences. In an essence therapy treatment, after a case history is
taken, vials of flower and gem essences are placed on meridians and
chakras, to alleviate emotional and psychological imbalances. At the end
of the session a "prescription" bottle of essences is made up for the
client to take home to continue with the healing at home. Essence
Practitioners Certificate gained through Sue Lilly at Mandragora
Complementary Studies in Exminster.£38 per hour including prescription essence bottle.
helps to dispel many psychological problems such as phobias, and also
addictions such as nail biting or smoking, exam nerves and
self-confidence issues, etc. Hypnotherapy is generally more successful
than counselling, as the gentle trance techniques used to change the
brain waves from beta to alpha put the mind into a relaxed state, which
is much more receptive to the acceptance of therapeutic suggestions. I
specialise in releasing stuck childhood belief patterns instigated
though mental, emotional and physical abuse, and also in weight loss
stemming from emotional ,
but not physical - such as Diabetes - or drug prescription related
causes. Weight loss and releasing childhood emotional trauma is combined
with one or more one and a half hour sessions of Health Kinesiology.
