Kathleen was really professional and the treatment was excellent. She also gave me good tips how to treat my skin at home. I would definitely recommend her!

Kathleen is lovely and very knowledgeable. Her salon is in her home and very comfortable and relaxing. Kathleen asks about any specific skin problems/ concerns and adapts the treatment accordingly. She advises you on your skincare routine and you end up leaving with better skin and tips for a better skincare routine. I will be back and will recommend her to others as well.

Great massage, very relaxing and had a great nights sleep that evening. Kathleen gave some good advice afterwards. Will be going back again.

Kathleen was spot on. She noted what issues I had, and worked on them in the session. She seemed very knowledgable and advised me on treatment going forward. I hope to go back soon!

As somebody who has found the whole idea of walking into a beauty salon daunting and somewhat intimidating, but wanting to experience life's little luxuries like a pedicure, it's no surprise that I'd put off for so long. I had been looking for something local to myself and Kathleen immediately stuck out with her line of testimonials from both new and existing clients, some who had been seeing her for years. As I am now 25, I figured I should just bite the bullet and I booked a medical pedicure session through Wahanda.

There was a slight hiccup with the booking, but Kathleen was so understanding and apologetic, even though it wasn't her fault, but re-arranging a convenient time to see her was very easy. She is just as lovely in real life as she is over the phone, making me feel reassured as an anxious first-timer to this sort of thing. Kathleen is easy to reach by public transport, and is placed in a nice and quiet leafy residential area, so no prospect of a daunting beauty salon here, thankfully!

Her treatment room is very clean, quiet and calming, with a homely and soulful feel. If you arrive a little early, Kathleen will ensure you get settled in with a drink whilst you wait, and of course keep you up to date. If this is your first time visiting, you will be asked a few personal questions, but don't worry as this is essential for both you and Kathleen to make sure that you don't have any allergic reactions and to look after you wellbeing, not to mention the fact she feels a great duty of care. After that, you're up on the couch and away.

Kathleen was ever so gentle with my feet. She does not judge the state that they are in and she prides herself on doing a good job (and she is a perfectionist!) in making sure that you and your feet go away feeling absolutely fantastic. You shouldn't go away feeling anything less, and Kathleen always invites you to let her know if you are feeling okay, to be vocal if what she is doing doesn't feel right or causes you any discomfort. She takes her time to make sure that you are happy with everything she does, and if you have polish put on, will patiently assist you in trying to get your feet into your flip-flops! (If you new to this like me, sandals with velcro straps that don't go between your big toe and other toes are the most ideal for pedicures with polish, I've discovered!)

I have already recommended Kathleen to friends who have been in the same position as me, too intimidated and frightened of the beauty salons on the high street where everybody can see in or can see you. Kathleen's one-to-one selfless attention, friendliness and understanding is second-to-none – I'm scared to go anywhere else now that I have found her and look forward to seeing her again for another pedicure and perhaps even her other treatments in the very near future.

Very relaxing treatment, although felt refreshed and energised afterwards, Kathleen is very professional yet extremely friendly. Would recommend her services to anyone looking for a truly bespoke treatment.

Been going to Kathleen for 4 years and highly recommend her to friends and neighbours. Excellent facials, really helping with my problem skin and sorting out my milia. Very professional and friendly, my skin always looks great after seeing her.

Image Inspiration is a 'feel good' experience in every way - professional, excellent treatments and a therapist who really cares about her clients.

Kathleen gives an excellent facial and I highly recommend Image Inspirations.

Facials are normally accompanied by a neck and shoulders massage, which is very relaxing.
Kathleen gives good advice on skin care and my skin has considerably improved in the 10 years that I have been a client of Image Inspirations

Kathleen is the absolute best beauty therapist there is.
hen she is dpoing a pedicure, she is gentle, thorough and shows exceptional attention to detail. Immediately you know you are in the hands of an expert, her skills are obvious. She is professional, friendly and she makes my feet feel incredible.
She is also the best "waxer" in the business. She is very thorough, efficient and more importantly for me, makes the whole procedure as pain- free as it is possible to get.
What makes Kathleen so special is her ability to listen to you as a client and for you to come away from the session feeling heard, you leave the session not only feeling better about your body because of her work but also you feel better in yourself because of just being with her- and you get that bit for free!!!

I have been going to Kathleen for at least 3 years for waxing and Kathleen must be given recognition for her almost painlesss treatment. It's a credit to her personable and professional service that I wouldn't go anywhere else now! I can't recommend her services and skills enough.

Compared to a number of Kathleen's clients I am a relative newcomer. I was introduced by a friend about 6 years ago and until then I had never experienced a facial. My first treatment was most relaxing and I came away feeling good about myself. As my regular monthly treatments continued, I came to see some of the other benefits - a clearer skin tone, re-hydration and less blemishes. Kathleen's advice about skincare day-to-day proved excellent and a particularly stubborn spot in the crease of my nose vanished without a trace never to return. Kathleen discovered that I had an allergy to aftershave and without it the condition of my skin improved within weeks. After a particularly stressful time at work, Kathleen recommended a course of Bach Flower Remedies which helped me to relax at home. Next, when I went on holiday, Kathleen advised me how to take care of my skin in the stong sun which proved invaluable. Previously, I always turned red and easily burned. In so many ways, I have benefitted from Kathleen's treatments and friendly advice. I am just sorry that I have not been able to keep up my regular appointments of late through illness but I'll be back! Thank you, Kathleen.

I've been going to Kathleen for about 18 years and now look younger than when I started going (I kid myself). At the end of every treatment I ask her to cancel her next appointment and do my treatment all over again. This is because the previous 75 minutes have been the most relaxing I've had since the last time I went there.

I had difficulty in registering so I have commented on the review below, but I would like to reiterate my views in a more noticeable way.

I would have written word for word the last post. She really is the very best I have come across and would not dream of going anywhere else

I have been going to Image inspiration for over 15years.
There is just one therapist called Kathleen; she is very professional but friendly in her approach and attitude. All her treatments are carried out to the highest standard. She is continually updating/studying her existing treatments and products but also adding in new ones. Her experience shows through her work and the results produced from her treatments. She is much more than a beauty therapist, her Pedicure Medical gives me a better result than visiting my podiatrist. Her facials are the best in terms of scientific approach; combining with all her experience and wonderful massage. These two very different treatments demonstrate her range and expertise across the field of her work. She is truly a lovely person I cannot recommend her enough.

I love the deep facial cleansing which really helps my skin but i also love the massage on shoulders and neck that kathleen gives . So not only is it a facial but also a very positive , uplifting and very relaxing experience which sets you up for quite a while

I have been visiting Kathleen for over 3 years for a monthly facial treatment. The best way to describe my experience is that if you haven't had a facial by Kathleen, you simply haven't had a facial! It leaves me with a complete sense of wellbeing, a deeply relaxing indulgence in such capable knowledgeable hands.
