Are you trying to conceive naturally, or do you require help to prepare for your IVF, ICSI, IUI or Clomid cycle?
I have been supporting clients on their fertility journey with natural and assisted fertility, for over 7 years. Helping with different conditions such as PCOS, anovulatory cycles (absence of ovulation), endometriosis, irregular cycles, autoimmune conditions, unexplained infertility, low AMH, poor egg quality, and elevated Natural Killer Cells (NK Cells). As well as supporting men with male factor infertility, such as poor sperm quality, low motility, and high morphology.
Support after pregnancy loss
I am particularly passionate about supporting women wanting to try again after pregnancy loss, and fortunately I’ve been able to support many women in this area to go on and carry their healthy babies to term. I’ll help in empowering you to nurture yourself both emotionally and physically, and take into account any further testing that could help in identify any underling issues, supporting you on your fertility journey every step of the way.
"Can Reflexology Help Overcome Infertility?"
Trying to conceive can be stressful in itself and this can certainly impact upon your ability to conceive. I incorporate reflexology into my fertility sessions as it is a deeply relaxing and holistic experience, which will leave you feeling rejuvenated and de-stressed, helping your body to work more harmoniously.

More About Me
I originally trained as a Chef cooking onboard privately owned motor yachts, travelling extensively around the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Pacific. This sparked my interest in nutrition and coaching couples to achieve homeostasis through healthy eating.
Wishing to pursue a career in holistic health, I trained as a Clinical Reflexologist in the UK, with Allison Walker the Principle at the Contemporary Reflexology College. Achieving the highest level in Reflexology, CRM Level 5 Mastership, including anatomy and physiology, with modules of fertility and maternity. I am also a full member of Professional Reflexology (PR), and CNHC. This led me to specialise in the area of reproductive fertility.
Since then I’ve continued my professional development in this area, by completing courses in the Reproductive Microbiome, Female Ecology, the Penile Microbiome, and Basic Pharmacology, which have been invaluable helping my clients further on their fertility journey.
I’ve also completed courses in Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage (RLD), Vertical Reflexology and Reiki, using a combination of techniques in my treatments to encourage the flow of Chi (energy) to organs and systems in the body.
I’m currently studying naturopathic nutrition, and fertility mindset coaching.

Can’t get in to see me face-to-face? Don’t worry I offer Online fertility support too💜.
Get your mind and body ready for pregnancy with an online consultation, which will help me to ascertain where you are in your fertility journey, and how I can help you further to improve your chances of carrying a healthy baby to term.
Whether you’re trying naturally or preparing for your fertility treatment, IVF, ICSI, IUI, FET, or using Clomid, I’ll help you and your partner to get in the best place possible to improve your chances of a positive outcome, by implementing some very achievable lifestyle changes.
The optimum time to prepare for pregnancy is ideally 90 days, as it takes 90 days for men to develop healthy new sperm, and women to develop healthy new follicles. Making some positive life style changes is not only going to improve your overall health to optimise your chances of conceiving, but it can also help to reduce your chances of miscarriage, help to support and improve your chances of a positive outcome when undergoing your fertility treatment, and crucially for the long term health of your developing baby.
But please don’t worry if you’re starting your fertility treatment sooner than the optimum 90 days, there’s still plenty we can do to get you in a good place ready for your treatment.
Please contact me for more information.
Relaxation, Stress and Anxiety.
Whether you are looking for a bit of ‘you time’ of sheer relaxation, struggling with stress brought on by work, home life, or simply from just being too busy, reflexology can work as a preventative and an effective treatment for combating stress.
It’s such a relaxing treatment it naturally encourages the release of endorphins within the body, the ‘feel good’ hormone which helps to lower blood pressure, alleviate stress and anxiety; and acts as the body’s natural pain relief. Enabling your mind and body to switch-off leaving you in a state of restfulness, reducing body tension, and helping you to feel calmer and more balanced. Which may improve sleep, increase blood circulation and boost your immune system, leaving you feeling more energised.
"Elevated cortisol levels [the stress hormone] interfere with learning and memory, lower immune function and bone density, and increase blood pressure, cholesterol and heart disease".
As well as taking time to relax it's also important that you look at your life style as a whole, avoiding stressful situations, taking regular exercise, and eating a healthy diet leading you towards a more balanced life.

Who Else Can Benefit From Clinical Reflexology?
Everyone! If you’re looking for help with your health reflexology can be a helpful complementary therapy for people of all ages, with all kinds of conditions. Clinical Reflexology is a completely natural, non-invasive, holistic therapy that works by stimulating the reflexes on the feet corresponding to a specific gland, organ or part of the body in order to detect any imbalances, and encourage your mind, body and spirit to achieve balance and healing.
Clinical Reflexologists are concerned with the underlying cause of the condition rather than just the symptoms. Symptoms can materialise as a result of a combination of physical, environmental and emotional causes, by identifying the cause we can tailor a treatment plan for the individual.
"Research studies...indicate positive benefits of reflexology for various conditions. In Particular...to reduce pain and enhance relaxation, sleep, and the reduction of psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression".
Reflexology will enable your mind and body to switch-off leaving you in a state of restfulness, releasing tension and helping you to feel calmer and more balanced.
