Jane Marsden

About me

From a young age Jane has always worked with children who were disadvantaged or with additional needs. She taught in a mainstream primary school before concentrating on special educational needs. She spent 23 years working in special schools or units within mainstream settings, her passion was about the whole child and the family were very much involved at every opportunity.

During this time Jane found herself in a personal family situation whereby she sought help from a range of holistic therapies to support a very stressful time in her life. This gradually lay the foundations for the way ahead...

The desire for a holistic approach was always in Jane's mind and this led to training in anatomy and physiology, then reflexology, by then she was hooked! She took the plunge and closed the door on conventional education whilst opening a new door into the world of holistic therapies and Sole-to- soulholistics was born !

Since then she has trained in other therapies whilst specialising in reflexology. The desire to learn, share and improve practice is always at the forefront of sole-to-soulholistics ethos.

The importance of supporting carers is an aspect of work which is considered really vital. Jane volunteers at a local children's Hospice ,working with the mums and tots group, she has also worked with WIRED, a local charity, supporting carers using a holistic approach.

Sole-to-soulholistics has worked in partnership with other companies to deliver wellbeing days, pamper events and retreats as well as continuing to develop a successful personal practice.
