Hi, I’m Sandra Hope, the founder of Essential Thyme.

I have always had an interest in complementary therapies and so in 2011, I took the plunge and set up my own business – Essential Thyme was born.

I gave up my career in Events Management, undertook professional training and set about helping people to ease the many physical, psychological and emotional stresses brought by their busy and hectic lifestyles.

I have a Foundation Degree in Complementary Healthcare, with clinical aromatherapy as a particular specialism. I am also fully trained in Sports, Pregnancy and Oncology Massage.

My mission is simple; to help clients relax their bodies, refresh their minds and renew their spirits through the use of complementary therapies.

Professional Bodies

I am a member of two recognised professional bodies – The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists and The Federation of Holistic Therapists.

I am also registered with The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
