Christine Fisk MSc Consultant Aromatherapist
Christine is qualified in a range of modalities including aromatherapy and therapeutic massage.
She has most recently completed an MSc in Occupational and Organisational Psychology.
Christine first trained as an aromatherapist and reflexologist in the early 1990s and set up her own private practice in 1994. As public interest in complementary therapies grew, Christine focused her expertise on the training side and worked full time as Salon Area Leader in Holistic Therapies at a local College of Further Education.
In 2007 she established her own private training company delivering a range of accredited complementary health courses both in the UK and overseas, as well as continuing with her private practice. During this time, she also worked with the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) as Non-Executive Director and Chief Accreditation Inspector.
Whilst working in Further Education, Christine worked in partnership with other colleges to launch the first ever foundation degree in aromatherapy in the North East of England.
As Non-Executive Director at the FHT Christine was responsible for advising on strategy, performance and resources. She played an instrumental part in exporting the FHT accreditation brand to South East Asia and was a Keynote Speaker at the official launch in Malaysia. She was also a Keynote Speaker for the FHT at The World Spa & Wellness Convention in Turkey, 2009.
As part of her high-profile role, Christine represented the FHT as a Profession Specific Board Member for Aromatherapy, on both the Aromatherapy Council (Lead body for Aromatherapy) and Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
After over 25 years in the wellbeing industry Christine is now working as National Business Development Manager for the Ministry of Justice. As part of the New Futures Network Team she focuses on rehabilitation, reducing re-offending and developing work opportunities for prisoners while in custody and once released - a position that she finds immensely rewarding.
While studying for her MSc, Christine developed an interest in mental wellbeing in the workplace. In her spare time she works as an Organisational Psychologist specialising in wellbeing in the workplace, and is currently exploring ways in which she can combine this interest with her passion for using essential oils to improve health and wellbeing.
