About Lisa

Lisa's career began back in 1995 when she qualified as a Nursery Nurse, roll on 24 years and here she is with a family of her own. One husband, three children, a boxer dog called Rex and an annoying cat called Nunu! Lisa has continues to study and expand her knowledge and experience with children and families and now holds a BA in Early Childhood Studies. In 2010 she was awarded Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) at Oxford Brookes University. Throughout her career the importance of understanding the basics in child development has been vital and proved to be an area she been particularly passionate about and has instilled in her varying roles within the early years sector, including that as a Quality and Training adviser for a national nursery chain. As a result of this high quality training Lisa which won the national award for 'Trainer of the Year' by The Nursery World magazine.

 

This depth of understanding in child development has given Lisa the opportunity to further explore the development of the brain and the affect that physicality and in particular nurturing physical touch has on wellbeing and mental health for all age groups and abilities.

Following a few years of health complications including anxiety and depression, Lisa was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia  and then Osteoarthritis. As  a result, she was forced to review her own working commitments and work/life balance. For one year, Lisa took time out of the profession to reflect and re-energise and 'slow down'. During this time, she became a support worker for adults with varying degrees of need such as disability, dementia and the elderly in need of support and could see first hand how physical contact and touch makes a difference to the lives of so many at such a deep level.

The light bulb moment came with the realisation that many of the facts and theories learned about brain development in the early years were also applicable throughout our whole lives and relevant to each and every one of us, including herself and the search for personal wellness began. Lisa now manages to be on top of her conditions with the use of holistic therapies such as massage and acupressure which has enabled her to redirect her energy, knowledge and experience to provide holistic wellbeing therapies to all ages, abilities, disabilities and those with special educational needs. With this new and exciting change comes additional training to fully compliment her current qualifications listed below. 

Lisa currently works part-time as a nanny for two adorable and very happy children aged one and three. This is a specialised role as the three year old is physically disabled. He benefits greatly from regular massages and loves story massage!
