Shropshire Mum Wins National BizMums Awards

Posted: 28th October 2015

BizMumsShropshire Mum Romella Jones has won the title of the Health and Beauty Mum of the Year Award with Bizmums, for her Cariad Therapies holistic therapy business.

The judges explained that “The winner’s business exemplifies the characteristics of this category. She is qualified in a number of therapy disciplines giving her the flexibility to treat her clients appropriately. One element that stood out is this finalist actively treats adults and children and many of her therapies have a proven positive effect on the whole family. Her complementary therapies are all about supporting and improving the lives of parents and children.”

Romella explains, “All the therapies I have learnt have been as a direct result of my own journey through life from bereavement to becoming a mother to parenthood. My children have highlighted needs that I have been able to support through new learning & qualifications and I now take these therapies out to the wider audience in Shropshire and beyond. I am so excited to have won the recognition of the award, it’s is all down to my happy customers! I’m running two days of free taster therapies and consultations to celebrate my award and share with new customers, all details are on my website I also offer national support through skype.”

Therapies are carried out at The Gorge Therapy & Training Centre at Maws Craft Centre near Ironbridge and in Newport and are also available through the internet or local people’s homes. “By offering a range of therapies and locations I can provide a bespoke service to my clients and create a real difference to their wellbeing and that of their family.”

Romella has been a Wire member for 18 months and attends the Newport meeting; “I have found the Newport group to be particularly supportive, with lots of ideas to grow my business. It was at a meeting about a year ago that I made the decision to focus my business on parents and children, rather than a general holistic therapist. Today I have reaped the benefits by the award recognising my USP for empowering families and positive change.”

One of my key provisions is as an Accredited SleepTalk Consultant, as this is such a valuable tool for children and their family. Sleeptalk can resolve issues around – toddler tantrums, sibling rivalry, food/toileting issues anxieties, behavioural outbursts, bedwetting, school anxieties/issues and so much more and is suitable for all children from 0-13. It only takes 2 minutes a night for you to read a script to your child as they sleep; to build their self-esteem and emotional resilience and KNOW that they are truly loved whatever. The difference it makes is phenomenal to your child and the whole family. Just ask for more information or to book your free consultation.
