Do you have painful or neglected feet?
People often neglect their feet despite them being so important for your overall health and well being. Common foot problems can cause unnecessary pain and sometimes embarrassment but you don’t need to suffer. Whether you find it increasingly difficult to carry out routine maintenance of your feet, have corns or callus which cause discomfort or have diabetes or other health conditions that affect your feet, I can help.
I qualified with a Diploma in Foot Healthcare at The Smae Institute, accredited by Queen Margaret University. My interest in foot health comes from a history of personal foot conditions and various experiences with Podiatrists and Foot Health Professionals. These experiences together with previous work experience in teaching and social care led me to embark on a career which I understand can have a real impact on people’s well being – by relieving pain, discomfort and sometimes the embarrassment of certain foot conditions. I am dedicated to offering high quality footcare and furthering my knowledge through continual professional development.
I am a Member of the College of Foot Health Professionals (MCFHP); a registered member of The British Association of Foot Health Professionals (MAFHP) and I am professionally insured and bound by the Code of Ethics.
