I’m Pleased as Punch!
Last week one of my very loyal patients told me that she had nominated Happy Face Aesthetics for a Tendring Blue Ribbon award. I was surprised to say the least, and wondered what I had done to deserve this. We chatted about it and my imposter syndrome was crushed when she reminded me of how far I have brought the business.
Happy Face Aesthetics started in January 2019 as a part time endevour I practiced from my spare room at home around my NHS job as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. When I finally had enough patients, I left the NHS and 3 weeks later the very first lockdown began. This started a year of financial instability, uncertainty and stupid TikToks.
In January 2021 I pooled all my resources and rented a clinic room in The Mews Therapy Rooms on Connaught Avenue. I have very little money, but I did have a delusional idea that I could make the business work if I just kept trying. It did work!!!
Over the past year and a half my client group has continued to grow and I have many more loyal patients who appreciate my services, honesty and ethics. I am so grateful to attract the best type of patients who make me laugh, cry, learn and make my work a delight.
More recently, I have registered with the Care Quality Comission to ensure patient safety and continued high standards. I have continuously been adding new services to our menu, and hope to add more medical/surgical treatments over the coming year. I have also taken the front room at The Mews Therapy Rooms which has been turned into a beautiful reception area and gift shop.
The gift shop has allowed me to to work with some amazing local independent business women who supply us with beautiful Sea glass art (Susie, Sea Glass Cottage), T.H.E. Skincare (Vusi, Happiness Emporium), scented candles, waxes and diffusers (Jo, The Divine Candle Company), and crystals (Maxine, The Spiritual Worker).
Happy Face Aesthetics is always evolving and with your support, I know the future is bright.
