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. As a salon team we provide a comprehensive range of Beauty and Skin Treatments, and we each bring our specific skills and expertise.
Here’s a little info on each of the team…

She has completed the ‘Master Level’ Dermalogica training and regularly updates her skills and knowledge. Nicola is a qualified make up artist and has experience in professional bridal and event make up. She loves giving make up lessons and most recently has been working with the British ‘skincare-make up’ brand Delilah. She only chooses the best products for her clients and is a real perfectionist about her work. Nicola is passionate about all aspects of beauty therapy and has been working with beauty apprentices for a number of years and liases with New College Durham. In 2019 Nicola completed the advanced microblading training and is passionate about helping clients achieve their ‘best brows.’
