SPOTLIGHT ON A CAP BUSINESS CLUB MEMBER.
YOUR NAME? - Wendy Guilfoyle
NAME OF YOUR BUSINESS? - The Sanctuary Broadwell
WEBSITE ADDRESS? – www.thesanctuarybroadwell.co.uk
WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE YOUR CURRENT BUSINESS? – Housewife, gardener and garden designer
WHAT MADE YOU START YOUR CURRENT BUSINESS? - Observing over time the number of people who weren’t well, but not ill enough to go to the Doctor and be diagnosed with a named condition and treated. They were rather left on their own. At the other end of the scale there were those who had been to the Doctor, had the treatment, but were left with side effects, anxiety or residual pain and they were left to their own devices as well. By serendipity I discovered reflexology which is good to give and very pleasant to receive and is effective. The rest followed on from there.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES? – Gardening, playing the piano, reading, crochet, embroidery when I have time, music and Budo Karate, walking my dog.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE? - I am not one for movies. The ones I do like are light hearted and have satisfactory endings – like Sleepless in Seattle – but I watch movies rarely.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MEAL? – Salmon and lots of vegetables
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE UK HOLIDAY DESTINATION? - Falmouth
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION ABROAD? – Our daughter lived in Palm Cove near Cairns, Queensland, Australia. It is beautiful there.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TV PROGRAMME? – Countryfile or Portillo’s Railway journeys
YOUR FAVOURITE SONG? – Oh! Difficult. Lots of good ones; Rhythm and Blues from the 70.s; Ed Shearer’s recent one and another by a fairly new singer, I think it is James Bay, with a song “I wasn’t expecting that”. I love classical music – Mozart “Clarinet Concerto’, Howard Goodall “Shackleton’s Cross” and a guitar piece “ Birds flew over the Steeple” – lovely!
WHAT DO YOU MOST ENJOY ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS? – Seeing people recover themselves, get so much better, grow as a person and “bloom”
IF YOU HAD A MAGIC WAND WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS? It’s very “magical” already!
Probably an eloquence that enables me to help others really understand what I do and how it has potential to help them, what ever their situation or problem
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS TIME? Doing the work I do now, offering and attending courses, continuing with my development, and developing what I offer to others, with enough time and finances to also develop some of my other interests - and have the occasional holiday!
DO YOU HAVE ANY USEFUL TIPS OR IDEAS THAT YOU COULD SHARE WITH THE OTHER CAP MEMBERS? – Avoid making snap judgements about people. They are never what they seem. Take your time. You may find a hidden diamond beneath an unlikely exterior. Everyone has their pain and their struggles; everyone has their joy and their beauty.
HOW HAS CAP BUSINESS CLUBS HELPED YOU IN YOUR BUSINESS? – It has helped in building confidence in being part of a “business world” and talking with people I don’t know very well. I have learned tips from other members and it is good fun.
Thank you Wendy for spending some time answering these questions
- it's greatly appreciated.
"I went to see Wendy for an allergy testing session. She was very thorough and took my medical history and proceeded to test me for many items. She identified which foods to avoid and Wendy also recommended an alternative treatment for certain symptoms. She has a very calming presence and is very easy to talk to. I can recommend her to anyone who suspects they may have an allergy of intolerance of some kind." - Bex Cobham

Reflexology by Wendy is such a wonderful experience. Firstly, what a lovely venue....the Sanctuary is set in a quite picturesque location, the treatment room is relaxing and feels calm and comfortable.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but Wendy completely relaxed me and the reflexology was just fabulous. You know when you are in the hands of an expert, and I even drifted off for a short while! If you need to take some of the stress out of your life, reflexology with Wendy is the way to go. I would highly recommend without hesitation. - Paul J
Wendy is a very experienced Practitioner. She can help with many health issues that a GP has neither the time nor the training to deal with. Lucie
I get a great sense of well being and relaxation when I receive Reflexology treatment from Wendy. Rachel
