My career in the Beauty and Massage industry began 15 years ago and I have been extremely fortunate to have gained experience in many areas .Whilst studying for my SVQ in Beauty Therapy I immediately fell in love with giving therapies and making people feel good and got involved in many charity events and community projects.
From College, the next five years I spent working in a busy Salon, offering a wide range of Beauty treatments whilst continuing training, specialising in Complementary Therapies. Outside the Salon I was involved in the medical industry where I worked on audited therapy projects and palliative care events which promoted the health and healing benefits, complementary therapies had on patient’s wellbeing.
As I saw opportunities to utilise my skills in the corporate sector I began working for myself in 2006 offering wellbeing workshops to a large number of people from companies in Central Scotland. The business has grown into other avenues over the years, offering home visits, pamper parties and then became a salon based Clinic in 2008. All throughout my career I have passionately continued study, attended workshops and training to update my CPD and add to my repertoire of qualifications, offering my clients the industries latest trends.
It seemed natural for me to progress into teaching and feel I have the best job in the world, getting to do something I love every day. It gives me so much joy, working with others whether it is on a therapist/client basis or a tutor/student basis.
My passion to teach lead me to move the Salon based clinic in 2014 so that I could free up the time and pursue this new era in my career. I continue to give therapies exclusively to my current clients and this has also allowed me time to fully commit to dynamically develop my career in teaching with Gateway Workshops along with promotion and charity events in the community, which provide an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience and build a client base.
I look forward to being your tutor and helping you fulfil your ambitions as I did mine. I welcome the opportunity to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with you and help you achieve your dreams in starting your own career by supporting your journey .
I thoroughly enjoyed the course, it was informative and offered everything I was looking for. Maureen was a great teacher, lovely person, very knowledgeable and attentive with a relaxed teaching style that put us at ease. Helped me to feel confident about what I was learning. Will be booking more courses with Maureen through Gateway as the location is ideal.
