Meet The Team!
The Retreat team are here just for you, the customers. We all bring a wealth of knowledge and experience.
We are a team who strive for excellence and love what we do, we work hard and smart and achieve great things.
Hi I'm Debbie. I'm the owner of The Retreat and have enjoyed treating customers for the last 23 years. I still do therapy and love it, it's the most satisfying job in the world. You get a result with every client, from removing unwanted hairs to leaving people relaxed and sleepy. I've also been lucky enough to work with many enthusiastic loyal and special girls, who I have loved training and guiding through lots of work and new adventures.
At The Retreat, we are a little family, management, therapists and customers alike. We pride ourselves in our relaxed but professional approach making the salon a home from home for everyone.
Hi I'm Abi. I have been here at the Retreat 17 years ( half my life ). I started here after work experience as a Saturday girl & have worked my way to salon manager. I am trained & practice most of our treatments but I specialise in facials and love any treatment upstairs in my candle lit treatment room.
As for the girls I work with, I can hand on heart say we are friends & have lots of laughs!
What I also love about beauty, is that you never stop learning and try to do a new course yearly.
I have been working at The Retreat for almost 8 years. I love the fact that two days are not the same. This job gives me so much job satisfaction, whether it's helping someone with aches and pains, getting rid of that unwanted hair or getting them ready for a day or event in their life. One of my favourite things about my job, is my clients, meeting new people or the long term friendship that brings you into so many stages of their life. Working at The Retreat, I feel so so lucky we have such a fun time, either at work or when we go on our trips away together. We're not just a team of therapists, were family.
I've been part of The Retreat team for over ten years, in between having my children. I now specialize in all treatments available in our brow bar and running our front of house.
We have a great team and it's always fun to be at work with these girls.
I'm excited to now be offering Microblading in the salon as well.
For the last 18 years I've been a full time mum for my two children which I've found thoroughly rewarding. I'm now looking forward at getting back into working within a team and look forward to meeting you as front of house reception.
Hello I'm Emily and I'm so excited to be part of the team here at The Retreat. I enjoy my job very much and enjoy helping people feel relaxed and pampered is very rewarding. I love the way that no day is the same, from a relaxing Katharine Daniels Facial to a fabulous set of nails. Working with such a wonderful team and fabulous clients make me look forward to coming to work.
I'll look forward to meeting you.
In 2006, I decided to change my career as a freelance trainer and coach and study to become a chiropractor.
I graduated with a First Class Masters Degree and i also qualified in acupuncture, kinesiology taping, massage therapy and Reiki.
I qualified as a McTimoney Small Animal Chiropractor in 2012 and I'm now able to treat any of the companion animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs.
Outside of chiropractic, I like to keep fit and healthy by attending regular yoga classes. I'm also a keen Nordic walker and hill walker.
