Beauty @ home
Address: Colchester
Therapists name: Vicky Frost
What I offer: Now I only offer eye lash extensions l, I do both classic and Russian volume lashes. I am so passionate about lashes and simply love what I do. Everyone's eyes are different and I take time to meet clients, discuss requirements and tailor the treatment to the person. Simply put I love doing lashes as much as my clients love wearing them.
My journey:

Before Phoenix I worked as a Solicitor then left that to have a family. I began my beauty journey with a manicure and pedicure course at Phoenix which gave me the bug and led me to doing several other courses including gel polish, eye treatments, facials, massage and eye lash extensions. I trained both during the day and did an evening course taking my time and am now so happy with the way my career is progressing.

My journey:

Hello, my name is Vicky Arrowsmith. I am a fully qualified City and Guilds Beauty and Holistic Therapist with over 10 years experience.  I am a registered Member of  Associated Beauty Therapists Ltd.


After working in Customer service roles in the City, I'd wanted a complete change of career for some time and had always been interested in Hair and Beauty. I enrolled with Phoenix School of Health and beauty started training on a Saturday school in 2002 Beauty Therapy Level 2 with Louise.
I left my job in the city and my first job after qualifying was part time as a therapist at Synergy Salon in Brentwood whilst further studying at Phoenix for Level 3 Body Massage, Aromatherapy and Indian head and post graduate courses. I wanted to gain experience and speed in a salon but always knew I wanted to eventually work for myself at home.
I qualified for my Level 3 and worked at First steps for a short period and then started some mobile work. I also set up a room from home and built up a good client base over a few years. I had a career break for a few years in 2011 whilst having my children. In Nov 2015 I restarted my business from home working school hours and evenings which fits perfectly with my family life. I absolutely love my job and working for myself gives me such flexibility. Louise has been there for me every step of the way and most recently supporting me for refresher and post graduate courses.

My journey:

I began my training at phoenix in 2006 , at the time I was working full time as a secondary science teacher and Head of year. I started doing my L2 City and Guilds Beauty Therapy qualification as a bit of a hobby. I soon realised I had a real passion for the industry and thoroughly enjoyed working as a therapist at home. I then had my two boys and dropped down the number of days I was teaching in school and picked up my beauty at home more. I then returned to Phoenix to under take City and Guilds L3 qualifications in Reflexology, Massage and Indian Head Massage as well as diplomas in Hopi ear candles, Crystal Healing, Spray Tanning and eyelash extensions. As much as I loved being at home I missed the company and the sense of being part of a team so I became employed as a salon manager in Dunmow. I am now also on the education team at phoenix and am currently teaching Aroma massage. I now have the best of everything, working from home, Teaching and working in salon. Making the change over to beauty is by far one of the best things I have done. Its a career I thoroughly enjoy, am passionate about and works well around my family. The enthusiasm, support and encouragement from all of the staff at phoenix have defiantly made that transition easier and has been partly responsible for my continued drive to learn new things and explore new avenues and treatments within the industry.

Holistic Heaven
Address: Therapy Rooms First Floor - David John Salon 163 Moulsham Street Chelmsford
Therapists name: Angela Woodward
What I offer: I am a mother of two girls aged 14 and 8 so I am building my business to allow me to be around a little more for them and because I am passionate to share the benefits of massage. As someone who suffers from a chronic condition I am in a ideal position to understand where people who also suffer are coming from, the relief I have gained from not only receiving massage, but performing it has made a world of difference to me gaining ease from the symptoms of Fibromyalgia.
My journey:

I was made redundant from a Motor Insurance role in oct 2016, I wanted a change and myHusband offered to pay for a course in massage as I had always wanted to do something like that , I elected to do the Diploma in Holistic Therapies as this gave me more than one discipline to offer when i qualified. I suffer with Fibromyalgia and I will admit after the first few weeks I did question my logic as I hurt more and was so tired, but as the course progressed and I got better at where and what I should do, Sam the Tutor devised ways for me to tackle the massage so it didn't cause me to much pain I began to feel much much better and became much more resilient- I passed in July with Distinction Indian Head was a Merit but I loved everything, I hadn't thought I'd be able to do this and I love offering the treatments and seeing others benefit from receiving the. I loved it so much I have now added Reflexology to my skill set.

Lully Lou’s Beauty
Address: Colchester, Ipswich, Maldon chelmsford canvey island
Therapists name: Cheryll-Louise Mawer
My journey:

Before I started at Phoenix I had no children, was working in a pub with no real balance to my life, life was dull.....

At the start the paperwork overwhelmed me and I thought I had no way of completing this it was about to be another failure in life ...

Working with Phoenix was very organised welcoming and like a family the owner louise was very approachable and that’s something I have not come across before.

I finally found myself and Louise made me realise no matter how many hurdles you face or how much you struggle with the normal reading writing and general understanding she would a way to make it work for me and it did...... the best result I got from Phoenix was finding my inner confidence and perfecting hands on treatments rather than thinking I could never achieve it -louise did that for me.
