In 2010 I started a 2 year BTEC National Diploma course in Beauty Sciences at BCOT. Whilst attending my course I completed work experience at two local beauty salons, this lead to my first job in the industry. I worked there for a year, alongside college, carrying out reception duties and a variety of treatments. In 2012, after completing my qualification, I helped to set up The Courtyard and joined the team as a full-time therapist. Over the years I have progressed to head therapist and taken part in various training courses to learn new treatments, including an Amethyst Trust cancer specialist course. I have also attended training to train other therapists, and I am in charge of teaching new members of staff treatment routines. My favourite treatments are Clarins facials, gel manicures and eyelash extensions but I enjoy all aspects of my job. I love meeting new clients and seeing my regular clients who I have built a good relationship with over the years.
