Hi All,

I would just like to introduce myself to all the members I haven’t met and say hello to all of you that I already know!

I was a social worker in a previous life and left after becoming very disillusioned with all the cuts and the way of working – basically, they sucked all the joy out of the job!  I had laid the foundations by opening a business with my daughter – Imago Beauty and Holistics in Shotley Bridge and left social work altogether 10 years ago.

I have had many comments such as … “wow, that’s different!,  what a change of path! etc etc but I found that I do more social work in my work as a holistic therapist than I ever did when employed!  I always say, you can take the girl out of social work but you can’t take the social work out of the girl!

I started making handmade skincare 16 years ago after doing a residential course up in Forres in Scotland and I am passionate about making beautiful skincare to help get the very best skin you can have!

More recently, I have collaborated with a number of other therapists, supplying them with wholesale packages for their own businesses.  I absolutely love working with these beautiful human beings and have maybe found another passion!

I’m really looking forward to meeting you all soon.
