Paula Dear

Paula completed her training as a Holistic Aromatherapist at the Tisserand Institute 15 years ago. Since then she has had a flourishing practise from her home treatment room in Cardiff. Prior to this she was a Speech and Language Therapist within the NHS for over 20 years and remains a Regional Tutor for the Makaton Charity. 

She also continues to teach Stress Management and Relaxation as a Tutor with ‘Relaxation for Living & more’ and delivers Essential Oil and plant related talks to local groups. Paula is also a mentor to NYR Diploma students as part of their mentoring scheme. 

Her love of all things botanical has recently led her to undertake an Introduction to Herbal Medicine course at Cardiff University and to grow herbs in her city garden to infuse massage oil for her clients. She also volunteers in the beautiful setting of Bute Park encouraging children into the great outdoors and can often be found river dipping or bug hunting in her wellies!
