“I believe that aesthetic medicine is an art form; the uniqueness of every patient commands a slightly different approach. It is thus really important to take time to understand each patient and give them the best possible advice and expertly delivered treatments to suit their individual needs"

I feel very privileged to be able to help my patients and take their wellbeing very seriously. Every step of their journey within my clinic is carefully considered, safe and focuses on creating the best results for them.
My StoryAfter qualifying in 1994, I specialised in Burns and Plastics as a theatre and anaesthetic nurse at The Royal Victoria Hospital (the centre of expertise in this field). I have a great love for learning and proceeded to study at Queens University obtaining a specialist degree as an Anaesthetic Nurse Practitioner. To further advance my skills I later qualified as Medical Prescribing Nurse.My enthusiasm in Plastic Surgery led me to non-surgical aesthetic procedures which seemed to be a natural progression for me at that time. I commenced aesthetic training in 2006 at a Birmingham practice and in 2010 went to live in Australia with my husband and two children where I continued in Aesthetics working with plastic surgeons and dermatologists in two practices in Adelaide. Continual improvement and training are so important to me and each year I attend a number of training programmes with the pharma companies to advance my skills and knowledge. As an Aesthetic Nurse, it has also been important to continue to increase my knowledge of facial anatomy which leads to safe, effective and fulfilling treatments for my patients.
My ClinicI have been based in Gloucestershire since 2016 and run now my clinics from Cheltenham, Gloucester. My clinics provide my patients with continued support every step of the way - from consultation through treatment and aftercare. I ensure that the right treatments are given to solve not only their aesthetic needs but their wellbeing and self-confidence. I am very interested in the psychological aspects of mature women especially through menopause, an area that until recently was swept under the carpet. Many women struggle on a day to day basis whilst not understanding how they can help themselves with the aging process pre, peri and post menopause. A new range of treatments for men has been added; their needs and physicality are quite specific and need to be considered carefully. Full-facial analysis can be given during consultation and advise on potential treatments. The future is very exciting and I am really proud of the business I have created.
