Professional beauty services inspired by nature....
I am an experienced beauty therapist who has worked in the profession for thirty years; I love my job, thoroughly enjoy taking care of women, educating client’s about their skin, providing tips to help other ailments – it’s a joy to work in my profession. I have a small home clinic at the beach which allows people to feel relaxed and comfortable discussing their treatment needs and savour their precious time out
I trained as a Beauty Therapist, Electrologist and Aromatherapist at the prestigious Joyce Blok Beauty Therapy School, Mt Eden, Auckland at a time when there were just two Beauty Schools in New Zealand. I was fortunate to be trained under Joyce Blok, who along with her husband Neil, were the ultimate in dedicated professionals, working very long hours and dedicating themselves to us as students every minute of a training day at beauty school. I was also fortunate to be invited to study the Micheline Arcier Aromatherapy technique with Australasian teacher, Anne Seymour Apps. Aromatherapy became a way of life and I successfully introduced many of my clients to essential oils, acupressure point massage and dietary changes.
During my early years working as a Beauty Therapist, I was also an active member of the N.Z. Beauty Therapy Association spending 8 years working in a voluntary capacity on various committees, Vice Presidency and Presidency.
My love for Aromatherapy extended to teaching at The N.Z. College of Beauty Therapy, Epsom, Auckland for many years and I regularly felt in awe of my students, who after completing a two-week full-time course, nailed the finer details and competencies of applying the techniques of Aromatherapy.
