Jackie started training as a therapist when she was nearly 50, having worked as a secretary for many years - for almost 10 years of them at Amstrad, before Alan Sugar became a Sir or a Lord!
Starting with a workshop, her interest was fired and she trained first of all as an aromatherapist, moving swifly on to reflexology, indian head massage, and recently believe it or not SPORTS massage! Neverstop learning - always something new and I love it! :-)
My very first blog - So, how did this happen - running a therapy school in Norfolk, the girl from Bethnal Green and Dagenham? Who'd have thought!!
My life changing moment was at a simple workshop. I was nearly 50. I had gone on the workshop to help my new husband who was suffering from stress and I had heard Aromatherapy helped stress.
Having been a single parent with 3 children for 13 years, I knew quite a bit about stress!
The children had now left home and it gave me time to think about myself and what I wanted to do and I wanted my new relationship to work, so I went along with high hopes, along with a little fear as I knew nothing about aromatherapy.
