My name is Jane Markham. I have been a Holistic Therapist for over 12 years and I am still thoroughly enjoying my journey.
When I left school I had no real direction regarding my career path. I had various jobs including office work, customer service and working for Age Concern. I also managed a car breakers yard for many years with my husband. I had always enjoyed working with people, but not quite found work I was passionate about.
In 2005 while going through a hectic period in my life, I met a holistic therapist and started having massage and Reflexology treatments. It was at this point I realised I wanted to start training in holistic therapy and enrolled at college to do Reflexology. I then did Swedish massage and I have continued to learn new courses ever since.
In 2008 I was offered a position as a therapist at Oldham Cancer Support Centre where I provided therapies and Reiki to people and their families affected by cancer. I felt very privileged to be able to offer support to these people and I loved the benefits they gained from receiving treatments. I left Oldham Cancer Support to open my own holistic centre in 2014.
Over the years I have completed many holistic training courses with Gateway and thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience, the tutors are very approachable and professional. I am looking forward to teaching for Gateway and hope to inspire new students to become as passionate about learning spiritual and holistic therapies as I am.
Therapeutic touch and energy healing are such wonderful gifts to share and enable us to help transform the lives and wellbeing of other people.
