I am Chinese and grew up in Hong Kong. I first came to England as a teenager to further my higher education and worked in the consultancy and banking industry before becoming an aromatherapist in 2005.
I benefited from holistic therapies throughout my childhood as my parents often took me to Chinese herbal practitioners when I was ill. With more serious problems, they would ensure I was treated by doctors practising western medicine – In Hong Kong, it is very common to receive holistic therapies alongside conventional western treatments and I have grown up understanding how the two can work in harmony.
My office work brought with it deteriorating health – with stiff neck, shoulder ache and palpitations becoming part of my daily life. As my condition worsened and painkillers were having no effect, I turned to aromatherapy massage. After the first treatment, I felt a discernible improvement in my health and in the relaxation of both mind and muscle. This led me to ‘give up the day job’ and start training as an aromatherapist. My interest in holistic therapies has gathered momentum throughout my training and I have learned how to take care of my own, and other people’s health - something I find extremely rewarding.
I am a volunteer therapist at University College London Hospitals (UCLH). I have experience on working with children with learning difficulties with Bowen at Stephen Hawking School.
I regularly attend Career Professional Development training to update my knowledge and skills. I also hold a First Aid Certificate for Appointed Persons.
I am fully insured and abide by a strict code of conduct and ethics.
