From a very young age I was interested in many aspects of beauty, especially the practice of massage which is where my passion to pursue a career in beauty stemmed from!
Upon leaving school, I went straight to college and gained my level two and three Beauty Therapy qualifications. In 1999, I left college and went straight to work as a therapist. After being in my first salon for seven years, I felt that I needed to move on so that I could further develop my skills and grow more as a therapist. At the time I was head hunted by a prestigious Aveda Salon, where I soon became the Spa Manager, Deputy Salon manager and in-Salon Coach for the next six years.
A few years into my role I started to develop a real hunger for teaching, which I was able to somewhat fulfil in my position as in-Salon Coach. Whilst on maternity leave with my first child I was approached by a local college to become a level one and two Beauty Lecturer. I started teaching in 2011 whilst at the same time studying for my Assessors Award and Teaching Degree. I graduated with honours in 2014.
In my 15 plus years experience as a therapist, I have completed numerous courses as in this ever growing industry you can never stop learning. I strive to be the best therapist that I can be, keep up with all the latest trends and have relished the opportunity to meet so many new people along my journey. I still work as a Beauty Lecturer and enjoy being able to share my passion with others, nurture and support them wherever possible and help them fulfill their dreams of working in the beauty industry.
Esther was welcoming, friendly and professional. Her experience as a therapist and tutor showed. Will definitely book more courses with her.
