Caroline Tiler-Ansell has undergone a complete career change - and is winning awards for it.
The former engineer from Mytholmroyd used to be a company director and business partner at Ansell Construction in Mytholmroyd, but has now turned her hand to complementary therapy.
She said the recession was one of the reasons for making the change and she has always been interested in the subject.
“The power of touch was passed down to me through my family- from having my back rubbed when I having trouble breathing due to asthma, to massage to relieve muscle tension when I was training in contemporary dance in my teens,” she said, “I first learned about aromatherapy after having my children, which I found fascinating and was so useful for childhood ailments, such as colic and tummy ache.”
Caroline was awarded Kirklees College’s Student of the Year Award as well as an excellence award from training body VTCT and the Federation of Holistic Therapists Student of the Year Excellence in Education Award.
Caroline is in the process of setting up her own complimentary and holistic therapy practice, Therapeutic Kneads.
