Health and wellbeing have always played a central role in Diane’s life, as she grew up alongside practices of yoga, meditation, philosophy and wholefoods which are still a cornerstone. Her own personal growth took off in her 20s and at that time she experienced first hand aromatherapy massage herself whilst going through a stressful time. Diane was totally inspired and knew this was what she wanted to do. To help others in a hands-on way to experience relaxation and nurture – as well as treating a wide range of stress-related issues, became her calling.
Diane set about pursuing her Aromatherapy training with the world renowned Robert Tisserand and went on to qualify in 1994 with their 2 year Diploma in Holistic Aromatherapy (TIDHA).
Having previously worked in the medical profession for over 18 years, she was able to draw upon her transferrable skills and knowledge and to bridge the gap between both worlds whilst laying a firm foundation for further training in complementary therapies – Reflexology, Reiki, Bach Flower Therapy, Indian Head Massage and Hopi Ear Candling.
In recent years Diane has worked as a Maternity Assistant at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, gaining valuable experience which lead her on in supporting mothers before, during and after pregnancy and the birth of their baby. Latterly having been a carer for multiple family members who were seriously ill, Diane has a particular interest in supporting the carer and those newly diagnosed with cancer by gaining insight and further training as a Health Mentor/Coach with Dr Rosy Daniel, an integrative doctor who specialises in cancer care.
