About Victoria:
Your Relaxation Therapist

Welcome to My Therapist Journey!

My journey into the world of holistic therapies began during a particularly challenging phase in my life. Struggling with chronic fatigue & severe depression after a traumatic event in my late teens, I sought alternative support beyond the limited guidance (at the time) of my GP. Through my journey, I discovered the incredible benefits of reflexology, massage, and meditation—finding solace in their deeply restorative effects. These practices became integral to my life and fueled my desire to delve deeper into holistic therapies.

Following my graduation & qualification as a Midwife, I started on a postgraduate course in Nottingham to expand my knowledge. In 2004, whilst working full-time as a midwife (& pregnant with my first child), I qualified as a Holistic Therapist. The journey was challenging yet immensely rewarding, and I established my own practice to empower women to experience the transformative benefits of holistic therapies for their physical, hormonal, and emotional well-being.

At Breathe, every guest brings unique experiences and challenges, which we navigate together to foster balanced health and enhanced well-being. My commitment is to ensure that each individual leaves feeling rejuvenated and replenished.
