I'm Sandra Hope, the founder of Essential Thyme which is based at 2 Osborne Road, Jesmond, just half a mile from Newcastle city centre.
I have always had an interest in complementary therapies, so in 2011 I decided to set up my own business – and Essential Thyme was born.
I gave up a career in events management and undertook professional training so I could help people ease the many physical, psychological and emotional stresses brought about by their hectic and busy lifestyles.
I have a Foundation Degree in Complementary Health Care, with Clinical Aromatherapy as a particular specialism.
Since qualifying I have carried on learning new therapies and advancing my massage skills, and I spend a great deal of time keeping abreast of the latest developments in the world of complementary therapies.
I am a member of two recognised professional bodies – The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists and The Federation of Holistic Therapists – and I am also registered with both The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and The Register of Health Care Professionals.
My mission is simple: to help my clients relax their bodies, refresh their minds and renew their spirits through the use of complementary therapies.
