Celulite treatments with Alexandra is more that’s a massage. She will advise you what to eat after and what is provoking this types of edema. I can see the difference with one treatment. I totally recommend it!

“Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.” – Karl A. Menninger (1893-1990)

With over 32 years of experience in customer service, and 27 years of marriage, Alexandra has developed invaluable skills, so that in the last 16 years she has developed a remarque work volunteering in Faith Communities as a Couples Therapist.

In 2019 she decided to deepen her knowledge by completing a level 2 academic training in Counselling Skills. With the Covid pandemic invading people's lives, she quickly realised that this was an opportunity to continue to develop her work and knowledge so she could help the customers who turned to her for online support.

After 3 years of working hard in her studies, she accomplished a Level 3 in Counselling Studies and a Level 4 Diploma in Life Coaching, under the guidelines of BACP & CPCAB.

Nowadays, her working days are invested as a Beautician and as an Integrated Practitioner (Life Coaching & Relationship Therapy - Flexible hours availability, home visits, concessionary rates).
