About Me



What sparked my interest in Trichology was back in 1999 when I began to work for a Professional Hairdressing manufacturer called TRESemmé, which came under the umbrella of Albert Culver at that time. Part of my introduction to the company was to learn about other companies within the corporation. Philip Kingsley was part of the corporation at the time and I asked the question you are asking: What is Trichology?


I found it fascinating that our overall health was indicated by what was happening on our head. After that all I did was keep asking questions until I was eventfully guided to apply to do the training course with the Institute of Trichologists. It took me a few years to enrol as I am a hairdresser and spend most of my time working. In 2004, after I got married to my husband Stewart, I started my training in Trichology.

I enjoy interacting with people and have spent most of my working life helping people both in Trichology and as a hairdresser making them feel the best they can.

I am lucky enough to live in the Cotswolds and spend a great deal of time out in the fields with our two Springer Spaniels.

I have been a professional freelance hairstylist for over 20 years and have come across many hair and scalp issues within hairdressing as well as carrying out all aspects of hairdressing challenges that are sometimes presented to a hairdresser.

I worked with two major manufacturers – TRESemmé and Clynol – and was involved in sales and technical support with both companies. I attended regular CPD (continued  professional development) training  in subjects comprising both nutrition and medical conditions. This gives me more insight into the causes of both scalp and hair conditions.

The cosmetic side of hair – colouring, straightening and perming – are an important factor of hair health along with the health of your body.
