A Bit About Me

I have spent over 30 rewarding years as a health care professional, working as a dental hygienist within the NHS, private practice, hospitals, care homes, and during my time serving in the Royal Air Force. I loved my career and was passionate about helping others- but early retirement beckoned in 2019.

I am also a qualified reflexologist and reiki practitioner.

Pilates entered my life many years ago when I was recovering from a neck injury, and I soon realised that the benefits from Pilates classes also helped with my posture within my role as a hygienist. I quickly relied on it to keep my aches and pains at bay which enabled me to lengthen my career span in a physically demanding role! 

In 2010, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and a long arduous year followed of multiple surgeries and chemo. Again, Pilates came to the rescue and played a huge part in my rehabilitation, helping me improve function and mobility on my affected side. I also had regular reflexology throughout my chemotherapy, which I believe helped with the side effects of treatment. Since then I have trained in reflexology lymphatic drainage, which has shown to be extremely effective in reducing lymphoedema (swelling caused by fluid build up) after breast cancer surgery. 

I am passionate about helping others and sharing knowledge, so I decided to train as a Pilates teacher to add to my existing qualifications. I felt that Reflexology and Pilates was a fabulous combination of movement and complimentary therapy to offer those going through cancer or post cancer treatment, however long ago that may have been.  I chose APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) as my training provider, as they offer a rehabilitation based training programme. Since then I have trained as a Pink Ribbon post rehab breast cancer Pilates specialist, and I'm delighted to offer a rehab service today for those who are struggling after surgery.

Today I work with both cancer and non cancer clients, everybody is welcome!

Client Testimonials

Here are some lovely comments from my Pilates and Reflexology clients!

I joined Deb's Pilates class a few years ago. She is very knowledgable and knows what I can't do due to my Osteoporosis. I love her teaching methods and how she comes across. Just lovely!
Linda, Waddesdon

I would highly recommend Deb to anyone thinking about having Reflexology. She is so friendly and puts you at ease in no time. Following discussions on medical history and what issues I currently have, Debs planned what treatment would suit me best. She has a wonderful room where you can't help but relax as soon as you sit down and the treatment was bliss. I'm really looking forward to my next treatment!

I love Deb's classes! Every class is different and she ensures her classes cover a wide range of exercises and movements to meet everyone's needs. She is very personable and caring and really takes the time to get to know each of her clients! Her classes have done wonders for my back injury! I couldn't recommend them enough!

I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for Deb, my Pilates instructor extraordinaire. Before joining her classes, I was a bit hesitant about Pilates, thinking it might be too complex for me. Deb has completely turned that around.  Her patience is remarkable, and the small class sizes make for a more personalised and engaging experience. What sets Deb apart is her knack for simplifying Pilates exercises, making them accessible and enjoyable for everyone.  Beyond the technical aspect, Deb brings a fantastic sense of fun to each class. I now genuinely look forward to my sessions, thanks to her infectious energy and positive vibe!
