Please note that only qualifications relevant to Electrolysis have been included.

I have a multitude of certificates relating to Beauty Therapy, that I have achieved and trained for during my years in the industry. Once I closed down the Beauty side of my business, my sole interested was in Electrolysis and that is reflected in the amount of CPD dedicated to this subject area.

Non Electrolysis Training included training in  Dermalogica, St Tropez Tanning,  Bio Therapeutics Face and Body Toning, Sothys, Guinot, (for which I was a top 100 Therapist in the country),  Clarins, Clarins Paris method for face and body, Murad, Matis, Elemis, Espa, Eve Taylor Skin Care,( I was a trainer for them for a number of years),  Hot Stone Massage, Aromatherapy, Minx Nails, CND Nails,  Nailtiques, Eye lash perming, Threading,  among other industry training. 

As part of the Terms of the BIAE I am obliged and Committed to complete CPD on a regular basis to maintain my skills in this area of expertise. I am passionate about continually up dating my skills for the benefit of my self and my clients so please check back here to see further training and CPD I have and will be embarking on.
