Meet the team!
We opened the ‘The Skin & Beauty Clinic’ in January 2018 by combining Monica’s ‘Skinpathy’ business and Nicola’s Beauty Business under one roof. Together we have over 40 years in the beauty industry and we each bring our specific skills and expertise.

She retrained as a Beauty Therapist in 2007 and over the years continued training to achieve Level 4 degree module in Laser and Pulsed Light Technologies (2011), Level 4 Advanced Electrolysis Cosmetic Treatments (2016), and Level 5 ‘Laser Safety Officer’ (2019).

Since February 2018 she has been accredited with MASCED UK for the early detection and prevetion of skin cancer and melanoma and updates her training annually. Most recently Monica has trained in laser tattoo removal and benign pigmented lesions.

Georgia started training and working with Nicola since she left school in 2016. Georgia is fully qualified to Level 3 and is a true lash extension specialist. She has recently undergone the advanced training to deliver the latest and most up to date techniques. Her mastery allows her to custom choose which types of lash extension and styles will best suit her client’s wishes and needs for a natural but stunning look.
