I qualified as a massage therapist in 2002 and went on to qualify as a sports massage therapist in 2004. I have been working in the industry ever since, running my own successful clinic, offering many different massage and spiritual treatments.
I began teaching in 2007, working in London and Norfolk for a large award winning training school, writing and teaching my own courses for existing therapists and beginners.
During this time I have trained many students and am particularly proud of our 100% pass rate of my iTEC/VTCT practical exams.
I foundered Yve Training as I care passionately about the industry, and believe in first class training, that gives the student both the confidence and support to be able to build their own successful business and to thrive in the industry.
Our ethos is to empower students and therapists to become the best version of themselves to be able to enrich the lives of their clients and those around them.
The tutors that teach for Yve Holistic Training are all highly experienced tutors and assessors with years of experience teaching in Schools and Colleges around the country.
They are all professional therapists who continue to treat private clients and manage their own successful clinics.
I hope you enjoy your training with us and i look forward to meeting you.
Aromatherapy and Massage Tutor
My initial interest began with Aromatherapy in my teens and early twenties. I loved reading books and making natural products I could use at home. I never thought I would become a qualified Holistic Massage Therapist.
I began my journey into the world of Holistic Therapy because of a desire to help people live a fulfilling life with reduced pain and discomfort enabling them to enjoy themselves and their friends and family.
The more I learn about complimentary therapies the more excited I become knowing I can make a real difference to people in a less intrusive more natural way.
I am truly passionate about what I do and am in a very privileged position to be able to wake up each morning, looking forward to the day ahead.
I strongly believe in the therapeutic benefits of massage and complementary therapies and I am very proud to be part of the team working with Yve Training.
My qualifications include aromatherapy, massage, sports massage, myofascial release, oncology massage, hot stone and pregnancy massage.
As well as working as a tutor and PA for Yvonne at Yve training, I also run my own successful clinic treating private clients.
Beauty and Holistic Therapies Tutor
I have 20 years experience in the Beauty therapy industry. My career began in 1999 when I qualified as a beauty therapist and started working in a small tanning salon.
I have gained knowledge and experience in a broad range of treatments and therapies.
I built up the salon to employing 9 therapists and began teaching in 2012 for a award winning training school and loved sharing my knowledge and seeing my student’s confidence and business’s grow.
I currently still work as a therapist with a wide range of Holistic therapies as well as beauty treatments.
I feel lifelong learning is really important and love learning new courses and treatments, keeping my knowledge base and CPD up to date.
I’m very happy to be working with Yve training. I pride myself on being professional and approachable. I still have the same enthusiasm and passion today as I did then.
I am looking to pass my experience to all students I meet, and instil a passion for lifelong learning.
Reflexology Level 3 Tutor
My love for reflexology began after receiving the therapy for myself and experiencing some very positive results.
Having previously studied science and developing a particular interest in anatomy and physiology, I found it appropriate to start my journey towards a career path that I was passionate about.
Being a people’s person and genuinely caring for the well being of others it felt natural to delve into the world of holistic therapies.
Along side working as a tutor for Yve Holistic Training I continue to work as a therapist within my own successful Reflexology and massage therapy business. Reflexology remains a strong passion of mine and I have a strong desire to help others begin their very own journey towards building successful businesses of their own.
Professional Development Tutor
I am a Sports Massage Therapist providing Sports Massage Treatments in a clinical setting in Melton, Woodbridge. I am currently studying a Masters degree in Osteopathy at University College of Osteopathy, London.
In 1998 I qualified at a personal trainer in New Zealand and worked within the fitness industry till 2005. During this period I moved to the UK where I slowly moved away from the fitness industry although I have always held a passion for health, fitness and personal well-being.
As a result of this passion I have made the decision to come back to the fitness and health industry becoming a Sports Massage Therapist.
Having been brought up in New Zealand around a strong sporting family I have dabbled in most dry and wet sports and I have great understanding on how the body responds to exercise and fitness. As a teenager I played representative football for Hutt Valley before turning to rugby where I was selected into the Ken Gray Rugby Academy – Petone Rugby Club. When I moved to the UK I played National League Rugby Union for North Walsham Rugby Club as well as representing Eastern Counties.
In recent years I have turned to mountain biking and paddle boarding to keep active and have three beautiful dogs that keep me busy all day, everyday.
