Thank you for taking the time to look at Tunbridge Wells Reflexology and find out about me. My name is Olivia and have been a qualified reflexologist since 2014. I have additionally had advanced training in fertility and reproductive reflexology, maternity reflexology, pain management, reflexology lymph drainage and hand reflexology. I have also taken a number of other courses to further my overall skillset. These include St Johns First Aid, Mental Health First Aid and NCFE Level 2 courses in Adult Social Care, Counselling, Counselling, Safe Handling of Medication, Domestic Violence and Understanding Cancer Support. I have attended a suicide awareness course, hold a full DBS and am registered with the Information Commissioners Office.
My interest in holistic treatments started over 30 years ago when I began to understand the need to take time out and reduce stress to bring about a happier, calmer and more balanced ‘me’. As my interest grew as I tried more and more holistic treatments to see what might work for me and really, just to see what each one was all about.
A previous employment background in FMCG, Training and Management has given me a broad understanding of the stresses and pressures of the corporate world. I have witnessed first-hand how reflexology can relax, tone, stimulate, and strengthen the whole mind-body system to help people manage these stresses and pressures in this fast-paced world.
As an intuitive therapist I look to see each person as an individual, tailoring treatments to their specific needs. I take a holistic approach by supporting healing through relaxation techniques, providing deep and strengthening treatments.
I am fully insured and am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists (AoR). My training was completed at the Maureen Burgess School of Reflexology under the careful eye of renowned practitioner Maureen Burgess FMAR. My training consisted of over 100 hours of official case studies. In addition I offered treatments to friends and family to gain further experience. I am a member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists and was trained by leading reflexologist Barbara Scott and Harriet Coombes.
As a professional therapist I am able to register with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. This is a professional standards authority register upon which the GMC has confirmed doctors can refer through. I am also listed on the NHS Choices website.
As part of my commitment to give back, I am a senior therapist with the The Harmony Therapy Trust. This is a Kent based charity offering free complementary therapy to those with cancer and other serious chronic life altering illnesses. To find out more, please contact me or the Harmony Therapist Trust directly.

Olivia and James Pederson. James is Vice President of the International Institute of Reflexology and is the grandson of Dwight Byers.
In May 2014, I attended a training session with Dwight Byers; President of the International Institute of Reflexology. Dwight is the nephew of Eunice Ingham, the founder of foot reflexology as we know it today.
I practice from my quiet treatment room in Southborough, Tunbridge Wells allowing you to really get away from it all. There is unrestricted onstreet parking outside the house. Home visits can sometimes be arranged in the Tunbridge Wells area, which enable you to enjoy reflexology in the comfort of your home.
If you have any queries or questions about reflexology, please do get in touch. I look forward to treating you to a reflexology session very soon.
