Why become an Aromatherapist?

Why become an Aromatherapist? People have many different reasons and here are a few:

‘To work with specialist groups – cancer sufferers, the elderly, children and help them deal with their situation, symptoms and feelings’
‘To have a flexible job I enjoyed’
‘To be able to work around my family’
‘Because aromatherapy had helped me through a difficult time and I wanted to do the same for other people’
‘Because I loved the idea of working with plants and nature’

Why I became and Aromatherapist:
Aromatherapy supported me through an incredibly sad and worrying period of my life in the late 1990’s and has been my salvation every since.

When I was six months pregnant with our first child, my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumour and sadly passed away when our baby son was five months old. On returning to work, I was made redundant and life was incredibly difficult for me and my baby as I struggled to see a way ahead.

Returning to my love of plants and the natural world, in order to grow a new life, seemed the right path for me. In 2001 I gained an Aromatherapy Diploma with Distinction from Shirley Price Aromatherapy, Essentially Holistic was launched in 2002 and my aromatic journey began. This continues daily and I’m as passionate today about aromatherapy and its incredible power as when I first started training all those years ago.

The IFPA (The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists) accredited course was perfect for me as it gave me a professional qualification allowing lots of work options
