Professional Background

My fascination for essential oils began over fifty years ago, in the early 1970’s, when, as a teenager, I was introduced to integrated medicine (or alternative medicine, as it was coined in those days) practice and philosophy, and meditation.

During those early years I worked as junior secretary for the Company Secretary of Lewis-Selfridges, Oxford Road, London, but surrendered this role when Robert Tisserand invited me to work for him in his fledgling business.  Already inspired by the philosophies of complementary medicine, I willingly embraced this invitation and opportunity – and so began my ‘essential oil journey’.

I later studied at the University of Salford and the University of Bolton and was awarded a Bachelor of Science (Joint Honours) Degree in Counselling and Complementary Medicine, post graduate Masters Certificates in Integrated Mindfulness, and Supervision of Counsellors, and a Post Graduate (Adult) Teaching Certificate (PGCE).

I wrote and delivered various teaching programmes privately and for adult education colleges (subjects, for example, included essential oil therapy, diet and nutrition, counselling skills, aromatherapy for carers, and reflexology, among others) and ran a private aromatherapy clinic.

I joined the Complementary Medicine team at the University of Salford (School of Health Sciences and Social Care, now the School of Health and Society), fulfilling the roles of programme lead for B.Sc. Integrated Therapy in Practice and B.Sc. Complementary Therapy in Practice, module lead for Aromatherapy, Supervision and CPD, Communication and Professional skills, and personal tutor.  I also organised and ran an in-house aromatherapy clinic for staff and students.

Retiring from the University, I moved to Dorset, where I currently reside in Lyme Regis (Dorset and Devon are where my family roots lay).  My first three (award winning) books were published by American-based publishers Inner Traditions, and my fourth book is currently pending publication (title and publication date will be confirmed soon).   You will find examples of articles published in various professional journals and magazines, blogs, and radio/podcast interviews here and here.  My writing is inspired and informed by my research, practice, and teaching (curiosity and fascination).  Indeed, over the years, I have been transported on a wonderful journey of discovery and intrigue, an adventure I continue to pursue and enjoy.

I am a fellow of the International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA) and a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT).

I am also the mother of four grown up children, and graced grandmother of twelve grandchildren.
