"We had tried to conceive for so many years already, 4 I think and several attempts of help from outside had failed. It was more by desperation and coincidence that I went to see Barbara Scott, a practitioner I had never heard of before, neither had I had any experience in reflexology. But someone said she had a good success rate, so I started sessions. And what a lucky coincidence that was, not only do we now have two beautiful children, twins, but also two of my friends who wanted to become parents so badly are now each with a baby."
"When I think about it, Barbara’s skills are so amazing and I totally admire her achievements. Not only does it lead to success – at least in our and our friends case each on the first attempt – but the treatment is also so extremely soothing and comforting that even men (to my experience often suspicious of any methods outside the ordinarily scientific) turn to like it. Her holistic approach takes your lifestyle and diet into consideration, her kind manner supports you emotionally and apart from that, she is an absolute expert in all things fertility and a perfect consultant for any clinical treatments one might accompany her reflexology with. We both are very grateful for anything she has done for us." A in an email
"I was recommended Barbara Scott by CARE in Nottingham following a series of failed IVF attempts although I had successfully undergone our first cycle and was lucky enough to have an older child. Reflexology was not something I had ever considered or undertaken before but upon meeting Barbara all my fears were allayed.
I found her to be so caring and compassionate that visits to her were an absolute joy and it was like going to see an old friend. She was so sensitive to all matters even those outside the treatment. One of the things I found so comforting is that she was always available to provide me with an appointment when I needed one which was no mean feat as she has many clients. I consider it to be a very bespoke service.
I also attended a number of her Creative Visualisation workshops and found it very helpful as I was able to meet many other women who had similar difficulties in very safe and secure environment.
I worked very closely with her in conjunction with my drug regime and after a number of false starts I gave birth to my second daughter.
I feel it has been a privilege to know and work with Barbara and I would not hesitate her recommend her to other women suffering from fertility issues." J C - Nottingham

"After losing our first baby when I was 24 weeks pregnant I was introduced to Barbara by 2 friends who had bought me a reflexology session as a gift. From the very first session Barbara was incredibly kind and caring and throughout the many tests and next 2 cycles of IVF treatment we underwent Barbara supported myself and my husband offering advice and support at every step of the way. I can't praise Barbara highly enough for all of her help through this difficult period. We now have a 12 week old little boy and we feel so very blessed and lucky to have him. At every stage in the long process we have been through it has made such a difference to know that Barbara has been on hand to help us - always there and always flexible, adapting her approach to whatever we needed at the time. It's difficult to put into words how very grateful we are for all of the care she has shown us. Thank you seems such a simple phrase to express so very much!" L from Nottingham

"Barbara - you provided a magical touch throughout my pregnancy with William, not only relieving the associated aches and pains, but also providing emotional support - essential when I was feeling unsure and nervous with my first pregnancy. Always encouraging, your reflexology left me feeling relaxed, calm and invigorated. Your advice, treatment and friendship was invaluable, thank you for everything." N - By Email
"Thank you for everything you have done for us in the past two years. Finding you was such a blessing for us. Without you we wouldn't be looking forward to our first Christmas with our daughter."

"When I was looking for a reflexologist I was lucky enough to find Barbara - and now I have two lovely girls. I was in my thirties. Month after month nothing was happening and it was just starting to feel like an insurmountable problem. I was starting to feel quite anxious and stressful and the doctors weren't interested. I felt that I had to control the situation and do something myself. My mother-in-law read an article that said reflexology could sometimes help. I started to see Barbara in February and within two or three months my cycles had started to become much more regular. Then I conceived in September - so the whole thing took about seven months. I certainly believe my cycle would not have become so regular within a couple of months without reflexology and I firmly believe that reflexology helped us."

"A miracle has happened. I'm pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am currently 15 weeks pregnant and have only started telling people recently as I was too scared and couldn't believe my luck. I still can't!!! Only my little bump (it actually looks quite big to me) keeps telling me that this is not a dream!"
