Lesley Donaldson

Before founding Restore, I trained in general and sick children's nursing, health visiting and midwifery, and worked for many years as a health visitor in Sheffield and Derbyshire.  Preventative care and empowering people through health and lifestyle changes have always been at the core of my work.


Working in the NHS, and later as a Solicitor and in business, has enabled me to see the demands placed upon employees and employers alike in time-pressured environments.  Eventually the 'pull' of Complementary Therapies was too great, and I embarked on a journey of discovery and fulfillment.  Both receiving, self-treating and giving Reiki, Reflexology and Emotional Freedom Therapy has brought calm into my life whilst quickly easing aches and pains.

I am passionate about my holistic health work and my continued interest in medicine, nutrition and well-being techniques, together with continued professional development, is reflected in the quality of services I offer.  As a Hypnobirthing Teacher I offer preparation for labour and birth classes to couples and small groups.

I also offer a special Reflexology technique as a natural way to prepare for birth once baby's 'expected date' has passed.

What Does Restore Do?

Complementary Therapies

A variety of techniques which can be given to anyone, of any age, with few contra-indications, and helping to promote balance in the body, reduce stress (the greatest single cause of disease and illness in modern society), and trauma and accelerate the body's natural healing process.  Touch is a wonderful healing gift in itself.

Complementary Therapies are of great benefit to business, commerce and the workforce, by focusing on the health of the organization and employees, by helping to reduce absenteeism and presenteeism, (which are major barriers to success of companies), and increasing productivity, motivation & morale and staff retention.
