Sheila Nugent is one of the founding members of the IRI Ltd. and was Chairperson of the Irish Council of Reflexologists from 1991-95. Sheila, alongside others, worked tirelessly for years to bring the Irish Society of Reflexologists and The Irish Council of Reflexology (the two governing bodies in Ireland) together after years of meetings between the two organisations. They joined forces to form the current IRI. Sheila and Phyllida Templeton founded Chrysalis School of Reflexology in 1984, under the direction of their tutor Jane Voukvic. They taught their first class in Cookstown, Co. Tyrone and then Donegal. In 1990. Phyllida decided to move in a different direction into full-time counselling and worked with Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. Sheila then taught her first class in Sligo in 1990 and from then on has taught in the counties of Derry, Donegal, Sligo, Galway, Tyrone, Antrim, Down, Monaghan, Cavan, Longford, Roscommon and Dublin. Sheila currently teaches all her courses in Queen’s University, Belfast and Cookstown, Co. Tyrone. Sheila changed the name of the school in 2012 to Sheila Nugent School of Reflexology and her daughter Arúna now teaches with her. For years students have asked Sheila why she hasn’t written a book, with her extensive knowledge and wisdom. Her only reply is “I am a walking talking book and those who come to my courses will get many chapters from my book of wisdom”.
One of her former students described Sheila. “I found Sheila to be an inspiration – her style of teaching just clicked with me. She is so knowledgeable but never allows you to feel out of your depth or unsure of your ability. I always looked forward to class and she has given me a real love for Reflexology and holistic health.”
Sheila has many qualifications that enhance her teaching: Yoga Teacher (taught GCSE and A ‘Level students to reduce exam/study stress); trained as a counsellor with Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and with Relate as a marriage guidance counsellor; Bach Flower Remedies; Kinesiology; Shiatsu; Colour Therapy; Sound Therapy; Cranio-Sacral Therapy; Energy & Spiritual Healing; Iridology; Personal Development.
Sheila courses are unique as she teaches the original Ingham Method and the Swiss Method of Reflexology, her courses suit everyone from the total beginner to those who have experience. What I look for in my students is an openness and understanding about themselves, and a willingness to learn compassion for themselves and their fellow human beings.
The aim of our training is to provide a high standard of knowledge and expertise in all the therapies, to facilitate the practical application of the therapy to the best therapeutic effect and to assist the student in gaining a true holistic understanding.
By the completion of their training graduates will have a comprehensive understanding of the holistic approach of complementary therapies, instruction in practical application of the therapy and personal development of the practitioner.
