Our Story

Before I came to the beauty industry, in my mind it wasn’t always associated with positive feelings. I would often be concerned about what people would think of me when I walked through the door of a salon. When I was booking an appointment, I wasn’t sure what to ask for or even what I needed.

I vowed that when I opened my business it would be there for everyone without judgement – no matter their age, gender, size or shape. My Team would be there to help each person achieve their aims and respond to their needs.

We would be there to support you all the way – to take care of you and understand what matters for you.

In such a busy world with so many demands on each of us to conform to certain expectations and perform many roles, how do we find who we are as ourselves?

I had spent 20 years of my working life studying for qualifications, developing my career, constantly looking for the next step forward with more responsibilities alongside being a mum to 2 children, wife and daughter. Whilst I did many of those things because I wanted to do them, I found that I wanted more and more to reclaim who I was and to be able to run a business which would reflect my own values and beliefs. 

Treating people as I would want to be treated with care and understanding. Really listening to what they needed help with. Demystifying the language of beauty and aesthetics and rejecting a one look fits all.

  • Helping them value giving time to themselves.
  • Enabling them to achieve their desired look
  • Creating a space to pause relax and renew their energy
  • Enjoy a personalised experience with family or friends – no mediocre spa day with us!


I am especially proud of our team of enthusiastic and dedicated aesthetic and beauty therapists whose standards are high, and who themselves want to develop their knowledge and skills. Enabling other women to develop successful careers is something I am privileged to be a part of.

I have looked to Maya Angelou the civil rights activist throughout my life for inspiration. Her words challenge me to continue my own journey to be true to myself and who I am and to take TIME to be ME.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
