Donna Robbins PGCE, ITHMA.dip, MIFPA, MFHT
Passionate about professional holistic healthcare, I'm a self confessed aromatherapy & massage geek, with over 20 years experience as a complementary therapist & educator. I utilise Eastern & Western approaches within my work, therefore encompassing both physical & energetic areas of wellbeing.
Based in Roche (St Austell, Cornwall), I offer treatments from my clinic room. Mobile treatments are possible if you're unable to come to me, for an additional fee. I offer bespoke holistic experiences, tailoring treatments to your individual requirements that allow you to rest, relax, replenish & achieve a greater sense of wellbeing.
My career has been spent working in private practice, for charitable organisations & teaching. I've, successfully, supported a diverse spectrum of people & also specialised in HIV, AIDS, Cancer & serious life altering illness support.
A member of The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) & The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA), professional associations for therapists that have undertaken training to the highest standards. Members adhere to a strict ‘Code of Ethics’ ensuring that high standards of professional integrity & healthcare are maintained.
I'm also an Independent Consultant for Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic, an ethical, sustainable & award winning company providing natural health & beauty products. Online shopping is available here or via the 'Shop' page on this website. Additionally I formulate my own bespoke handcrafted products for clients, enabling you to continue supporting your own wellbeing beyond our treatment sessions.
I discovered the benefits of complementary therapies whilst addressing my own health issues in my early 20s. After which I developed a keen interest in aromatherapy & bodywork & went on to pursue professional qualifications.
My initial training, in 1997, was with Gabriel Mojay, Author of ‘Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit’, at The Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy (ITHMA). Since then I’ve completed many post graduate forms of training / continuing professional development.
I also studied PGCE teacher training with Exeter & Greenwich universities. I've taught complementary therapies, since 2000, from beginner to post graduate level, at numerous educational facilities around the UK.
I currently facilitate IFPA & FHT accredited professional aromatherapy & massage courses with Jo Kellett TIDHA, CIMI, MIFPA (Tisserand Essential Oil Expert & Author) of www.fromtheseed.co.uk, in Brighton.
I offer more informal learning opportunities, give talks & run workshops on complementary therapies, stress management & relaxation whether that’s on a 1:1 basis, for couples or larger groups.
