Gill is a renowned therapist who is popular with her clients/patients as she has a true passion for the profession and sincerely strives to contribute to the community, whether that be assisting each person with their personal beauty or physical needs or helping to teach the students that come to her on placement during their training courses and passing on to them the experience she has gained within both the Health and Beauty industries.
The bond between a beauty therapist and their client’s is special; there is a lot of trust involved, so it’s important that the beauty therapist have the social skills to put their client at ease from the moment the session begins to the moment it ends. Beauty therapy isn’t just about making the client look fabulous on the outside, it’s about making them feel good on the inside too and having the ability to listen without making a judgement on the situation being discussed. Letting them know we are here to listen whenever needed.
