Samantha Blake – Holistic & Beauty educator – Massage specialist
I started my career with a 3 year Beauty Therapy, Make Up and Hairdressing course at University College Birmingham in 1995. I then continued to study to become all round Beauty and Holistic Therapist and specialise in different types of Advanced Facial and Body Services, with a particular interest in Holistic Aromatherapy Massage and Spa Treatments. I then went on to complete associated training in Nutrition and Health Screening to add a whole person approach to my therapy style. With a love for Electrolysis I also trained with Gill Morris in Thread Vein and Skin Tag Removal.
I have honed my passion and expertise for our industry by working as senior therapist, salon manager, trainer and company trouble shooter for top and award winning salons and successful salon group Re-Aqua, providing treatments and managing teams in many different environments in the Midlands, Surrey and London.
Working in a luxury environments also means I have worked with all of the top line products and treatment houses including Clarins, Guinot, E’SPA, Dermalogica, Decleor and learnt some successful sales techniques.
I always knew I would wanted to teach, so embarked on the Certificate in Education, Level 3 Assessor and Level 4 Verifier Qualifications,
starting my teaching career in Further Education at Farnborough College of Technology as a Lecturer as well as specialising in students with learning issues.
Working in two very large organisations with diverse learner issues, gained me much experience until the opportunity to work in the private sector with Phoenix after having my daughter in 2011. Working with small groups of learners allows me autonomy to use all the skills I have learnt. Teaching and passing on
knowledge and experience is my driving force as an educator, to build self esteem and confidence for my students to have the best career on the planet, (apart from being Mum of course.)
I continue to feed my industry passion by helping small businesses to thrive and grow with my consultancy and business development services. I have also founded my own brand girls experience focused
