Charlotte Murray runs the Charlotte Murray Salon in Muswell Hill.  There will be more about Charlotte and her beautiful salon later in the week. People can forget that hairdressing is a very physically and mentally demanding job.  Standing up all day, listening and taking care of people can take it’s toll and whilst it’s inspiring, you also need to take care of yourself.  Charlotte turns to Wellbeing Specialist Prue Nichols to help her relax and recharge and has nominated her to appear in our advent blog.

1. Why did you become a therapist?
I have always been fascinated by the human body and even while working in International Public Relations I was often doing courses in palmistry and different forms of healing, It was only when I left London and spent two years working in India and Thailand that I decided on my return to the UK that I really wanted to do this form of work full time.

I became a sole trader eight years ago

3. What makes your service special?
I truly love what I do. My practice is guided by the seasons, from the colour of the massage towels to the aromatherapy oils used. Each treatment is tailored to the person – there are never any routines!

4. Did you or your company prepare a Christmas marketing campaign and what did you do?
I didn’t actually – I’m naturally really busy this time of year and have always had additional requests for Christmas gift vouchers.

5. What’s your preferred ways of communicating with clients?
Face to face

6. What’s your biggest challenge in 2015?
No challenges – I have a gorgeous 18 month old baby and a very busy practice so my focus is on nurturing what I have rather than expanding or making big changes for the next two years.

7. Tell us more about Energised Employee Programme?

By making simple changes, employees can lower their stress levels and transform their office experience. It’s good for them and good for business. The core components of the programme consist of:

My book “The Natural Laws of Work – how to be cool, calm and collected in the office” being published in April and reaching no 6 on the Amazon best seller list for all stress management books. You can order a copy here

9. Wh0 are your clients?
While I primarily work with people dealing with workplace stress, my clients are all beautifully unique and precious. From younger clients dealing with school stress to David Hasselhoff who calls when he is working in London.

10. What’s your favourite piece of business advice to pass on?
Trust your instincts – if it doesn’t feel right, it often isn’t.
