Welcome to BODY AND SOLE REFLEXOLOGY AND HEALING.... My name is Collette and I am a Reflexologist and Reiki Energy Healer. I live in Edenbridge in Kent, with my 2 daughters and Buddy the dog!

One way or another I have always loved working in a caring role. One of my first ever jobs was working as a care assistant in a nursing home and this is where my passion for helping people began. For many years I worked with the elderly in different settings as well as visiting them in their own homes, however I also developed a passion for travelling and seeing the world. Of course this comes at a cost, so I decided to change my career so that it would incorporate my love for travel, by becoming Cabin Crew for Virgin Atlantic. I spent the next 10 years working hard and partying even harder in some of the most amazing places in the world and I really do have some stories to tell!!! I feel truly blessed that I had the opportunity to do this, however after having my second daughter, I decided that I needed to put my feet firmly back on the ground and I decided to go back into Healthcare. I began working in my local Hospital as a Healthcare assistant in the minor injuries unit, before moving into the same role at my local GP surgery. Whilst I enjoyed my job, I didn't LOVE my job. I loved helping people but I didn't wake up feeling passionate and excited about going to work. I decided that life was too short to be anything less than passionate and inspired by my career, so after a lot of soul searching I decided that with my absolute love of anatomy and physiology, and my genuine interest and fascination of Reflexology, I went on to gain a level 3 diploma in Reflexology, at the wonderful Maureen Burgess School of Reflexology, at the Queen Victoria hospital in East Grinstead. After a good year of mastering my technique, I then went onto qualify in Advanced Reflexology, followed by Using Crystals with Reflexology (which I feel adds a little extra magic to my treatments).
Surprisingly the reflexology took me on a rather spiritual journey, that I had not anticipated or indeed expected, which is how I discovered the wonderful REIKI, which I feel works hand in hand beautifully with REFLEXOLOGY. REIKI is known as universal energy and just by the simple act of placing your hands on yourself, or another person you can release the flow of the REIKI energy via the two energy channels that cross the chest and then into the recipient. I attained my second degree Reiki qualification and love to incorporate this into my reflexology treatments at the end of each treatment. Again a bit like the crystals, I feel it adds just a little extra magic to thOne thing to watch out for when you are looking for a therapist is that they are a member of the AOR (association of reflexologists) They will have MAR next to their name and also the AOR approved membership on their website. This will guarantee that your therapist is governed by a strict body, who ensures they have approved qualifications, valid insurance and are constantly learning and improving their skill. e whole experience. If you had told me when I started this journey that I would be working as a healer by the end of it, I probably would have laughed, but somehow this work has found me and I feel truly blessed to be able to share this wonderful gift with my clients.
IF YOU LIVE IN THE EDENBRIDGE, TONBRIDGE, SEVENOAKS, TUNBRIDGE WELLS OR SURROUNDING AREAS and you feel either of these treatments are for you then I would love to hear from you.

I spent a lot of time researching all the different schools and colleges that teach reflexology and was horrified to find that you can actually gain a qualification online for very little money and without any practical assessment or training. This was definitely NOT the way I wanted to qualify and I found the prestigious "Maureen Burgess school of Reflexology" based at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead. The school opened in 2000, however was established in 1989 in Barnes, London after Maureen had been a reflexologist for many years and decided she wanted to share her gift and knowledge.
