How it all Began
From a very young age, Catherine has always wanted to help people; she pursued this urge and started her career as a nurse. This has left her with a unique perspective on patient care as she has nursed people from all walks of life; from newborn babies to adults as old as 104. As much as she loves nursing, Catherine has always wanted to do more for people.
A few years ago, Catherine found herself with a foot complaint and went to go and see a podiatrist. She was amazed at how much better she felt after just one visit and decided to pursue podiatry and foot health as a career. She now splits her time between nursing and working as an FHP and Reflexologist.
In 2013 Catherine went to a podiatrist school in maidenhead and gained her FHP: Foot Health Professional Qualification. She began working at Langley’s soon after graduating, in February 2014. After working in the field for some time, Catherine has decided to advance her career even further and has returned to podiatrist school to study for a full qualification in podiatry, in conjunction with the Queen Margarets University in Edinburgh. Once completed, her qualification will allow her to extend her treatment options in the future.
Catherine can take care of any issue related to the feet: general foot care, in-grown toenails, corns, hard skin, thickened nails, verrucas, fungal nail infections and more. Alongside this, she specialises in Reflexology. Reflexology is an ancient holistic method of foot treatment that can help to improve your overall health. First discovered by the Egyptians in 2000 BC, they found that certain areas of the feet correlated with other parts of the body and that if those specific areas were massaged, than it could relieve ailments in the respective area elsewhere.
After years of practice, the Egyptians mapped out the sections of the feet and the corresponding parts of the body. Since then, the practice of reflexology has been passed down through the ages. Four thousand years later, it remains a popular holistic treatment for improving your overall health.
Wanting to cover all things related to her field, Catherine has also studied aromatherapy. This has allowed her to create her own foot creams, using antimicrobial and antibacterial essential oils such as peppermint, lavender and rosemary.
Catherine enjoys walking in the Fells in the lake district and practices yoga twice a week. Alongside this, she likes to cook, as it appeals to both her creative and meditative side. She has a dog called Skye and a cat called Maya.
