A little about me...

My name is Clare Whiteman and I am a qualified reflexologist with additional training in the treatments I offer.

 

I have worked in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services since 2011 carrying out neurodevelopmental assessments and working with children and teenagers with an array of difficulties. I found a heavy focus on talking therapies in statutory services and thought how wonderful it would be to focus on wellbeing using touch. The fantastic benefit of reflexology is that it can be used on everybody of all ages. I was attracted to Functional reflexology by the benefits it can offer to children and adults with additional needs and those managing high levels of stress.

 

With my first pregnancy I benefitted from reflexology given to me by my midwifes and enjoyed this holistic addition to my midwifery care. This inspired me to do additional training in maternity reflexology in order that I could offer this to women, and they could experience this holisitic care at one of their most important times of their lives.
