My name is Fiona Heppell , I have been qualified as a Complementary Practitioner for over 20 years. I work from home in a comfortable and cosy therapy room.
I worked for many years as an Aromatherapist privately. I was also the Aromatherapist at Holton Lee in Dorset for five years where I worked with people with all sorts of physical and mental disabilities and their carers.
As well as my home practice, I spent one day a week at Poole hospital working with their staff and also carried out voluntary work on the wards with patient’s recovering during their stay.
I have a vast knowledge in Aromatherapy and although no longer carry out full body treatments, I still give advice. I am an Independent Consultant for Neal’s Yard Remedies and supply their organically certified products. I am passionate about this company who were the world’s first health and beauty brand to be awarded 100/100 for ethics in an independent audit carried out by the Ethical Company Organisation .
Over the last five years, I have been employed by a local disabilities charity advising clients with physical and mental health problems to obtain the benefits and advice they require. During this time I have spent many hours supporting clients living with mental illness, auto immune disorders , Dementia and many other physical conditions to ensure they get the benefits they are entitled to. My client’s have become some of my greatest teacher’s and I feel grateful for all the knowledge and experience they have given me.
I now specialise in Reiki and I am passionate about this ancient healing system in our society today. Very few of us these days take time out from our busy live’s and Reiki can help you relax, clear your mind, relieve pain, reduce stress, lower blood pressure and restore balance to the mind and body.
I feel strongly that if we do not take some responsibility for our own wellbeing, our health will deteriorate and make us more likely to develop long-term heath conditions.
I hold a 2 year Person Centred Counselling Certificate and enjoy helping people to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing .
I enjoy walking, swimming, book making and spending time with family and friends.
