I was a therapist and then a tutor for over 8 years in London, teaching Indian head massage and Reiki/Seichem Healing, I enjoyed my time as a tutor and the students loved my high standards and care.

The feedback from students was that they were unhappy however with other schools and the lack of quality of their training. I was in contact with many excellent tutors that did not have the time or finances to promote themselves, I was asked for their contact details which took me on the next stage of my journey. I gave up teaching to dedicate all my time to starting a new school, that was back in 1998 and I have spent every year carefully selecting tutors to run the courses we offer, making sure high standards were the number one priority.

I built Gateway slowly with only a few tutors and just a handful of accredited courses to start with and now we have over 70 accredited courses and over 25 tutors!

As a bodywork therapist for over a decade, I approach each client's journey with reverence and care, understanding the profound impact that healing touch can have on one's well-being. My holistic approach is rooted in the belief that every individual deserves a tailored experience, crafted to address their specific needs and concerns.
