Amy’s philosophy is that when you take a step on the path of holistic therapies it is a journey that never ends and she constantly updates her own skills and industry knowledge to enable her to teach the all the subjects that she loves to the highest standard.
After many years in the corporate world working in retail, recruitment, training and development Amy travelled around the world, upon her return she decided that a lifestyle change was needed and enrolled in a course to do Holistic Therapies, life has never been the same since!
Amy has three successful therapy companies, two very busy wellbeing centres Purple Turtle Wellbeing in Brighton and Purple Turtle Therapy in Hove, East Sussex and the Purple Turtle Academy which provides inspiring courses in wellbeing and therapies. Here she found she could inject the enthusiasm and belief she has found for all her chosen holistic therapies into sharing her knowledge and passion with others.
Amy’s courses have developed with her personal experiences influencing her areas of speciality. She teaches workshops for self development, qualifications to start a career and CPD courses to keep therapists up to date with the latest industry trends. Her teaching has taken her around the world to leading salons, spas and wellbeing centres.
Amy has experienced the amazing journey into motherhood and has two gorgeous children which keep her busy when she’s not working! Having two very different pregnancy experiences led her to specialise in Pregnancy Massage and Baby/Infant Massage.
Amy supports local colleges and often lectures to students on business having had so much experience on setting up and growing a holistic business. She was recently very proud to accept the Golden Alumni award from City College Brighton and Hove in 2015 for her work in this area.
