Hi there, my name is Julie and I am a fully qualified beauty, holistic and aesthetic therapist. I trained for three years at the world renowned London College of Fashion and graduated with a BTEC National Diploma in beauty therapy in 1999. I have been working as a professional in the health and beauty industry ever since.

Image of professional beauty therapistI started my career working as a therapist for a large international chain of luxury health clubs. Within a year I was promoted to head therapist, a position I held for a further three years, before seeking new opportunities overseas.

I made the most of my international qualifications by travelling to Australia, where I furthered my training, developed new skills as a beauty therapist and gained clinic management experience.

On returning to the UK I worked for two years in a high-end clinic, off Harley Street in London’s prestigious West End.  An exciting role, I treated celebrities and represented many cosmeceutical and machine distribution companies. I was chosen by PR agents to trial cutting edge, non-invasive aesthetic treatment systems on the beauty editors of many well-known glossy magazines, beauty journals and newspapers. I also featured on ITV’s This Morning performing a beauty-tox facial treatment on the journalist Ashley Pearson!

I was later offered a spa management position in London’s West End, working for the UK’s largest chain of health clubs. Within a year I was promoted to manage the company’s flag ship spa in West London, a role I held for a further four years.

Keen to expand my experience I returned to college and gained a teaching qualification allowing me to work as a trainer for an award winning international company that specialises in non-invasive aesthetic treatment systems.

I persued my holistic interests by completing Reiki I and Reiki II Qualifications

I then went on to work for the UKs multi award winning leading medical spa and skin clinics on the Kings Road, Chelsea, London.

Having worked for so many years  in the health and beauty industry I wanted a new and exciting challenge and so decided to follow my dream and set up on my own, offering quality and bespoke spa treatments and beauty therapy service. This led to the creation of Julie’s Beauty Therapy.
