Carol Winmill

Carol is a qualified Holistic and Beauty Therapist and IMPACT Wellbeing Programme Instructor based in London.  She worked as a Spa therapist for a large hotel chain before completing her teaching qualification (DTLLS). Carol has been teaching for over five years.  She worked with students with Emotional and Behavioural Disabilities (EBD) teaching head massage and beauty therapies to help them with their behaviour problems.  Carol now teaches short courses such as Indian Head Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Mindfulness for stress relief using techniques of the IMPACT Wellbeing Programme.   She provides workshops for community groups and makes the most of special events like NHS Mental health awareness week. 
Carol says “I was asked to do a one hour workshop for mental health awareness week.  It was based in the Canary wharf ideas store in London. The learners really enjoyed the massage side of it and also the ten minute countdown meditation.  There was a really positive feel in the room and a little laughter as they practised the peer massage.  Their feedback was all positive.  So I would say a great success.”
