Lymphatic Specialist, Lymphoedema Practitioner, Beauty Therapist, Foundation Kinesiologist and Personal Trainer level 2 and 3.
Founder and Training Director of UK Lymphology Clinics and a practicing massage therapist for 40 years, I presently run a private clinic in West Sussex treating cancer patients and clients with lymphatic dysfunctions.
Because there was no training in the UK 15 years ago for Lymphoedema, Yvette travelled to Germany and trained in level III CDT Lymphoedema Therapy at The Foëldi Klinik, Lymphology Hospital, Hinterzarten, and has since become known as a specialist in the study of lymphatics and early onset lymphoedema.
My passion to help cancer patients reduce their risk of Lymphoedema led to the creation of UK Lymphology Clinics. I created my own training programme with treatment for massage therapists in Lymphatic Pressure Therapy to help breast cancer clients. This new LPT therapy has since been proven for reducing swelling and increasing mobility in patients post breast cancer.
UKLC Lymphatic Essentials Module 1 LIM – Lymphatic Integrated Massage is a 15-minute essential lymph boosting massage to end any other therapy application. Designed for clients who need help stimulating their lymphatic system and immunity. Yvette created this advancing knowledge of new lymphatic massage applications from the success on her own clients.
“Having spent a lifetime working in this industry it gives me great pleasure in helping further the careers of massage and complementary therapists in this new area of essential healthcare, I am just sad that I can’t start my career all over again”.
I have volunteered for Look Good Feel Better for five years and run the Worthing workshop as the Regional Co-ordinator.
I adore sailing on our boat with my husband of 28 years and love the exhilaration of fresh air and open water, whether calm or gale force, spending quality time together.
I really enjoy any `getting messy` artwork, taking scenic photographs and sewing (when time allows).
