Hi, I'm Nic, owner of The Clinic at Forty Eight.
I qualified as a Nurse in 2008 and a Midwife in 2010. Before that, although i worked in administrative roles, I studied anatomy and physiology, and practiced in massage, aromatherapy and reflexology, so I have always been interested in people and helping them to feel and look better.
As my family grew, I decided that long hospital shifts and a dictated work rota just didnt give me the flexibility I wanted, so I began to seek alternatives. I had always had a yearning to be my own boss, and with a deep personal interest in skincare, health and growing old gracefully, coupled with a desire to maintain my clinical skills, aesthetics was a natural progression.
I started off with superficial chemical peels and medical microneedling, progressed to basic injectable treatments followed by advanced techniques. It is really important to me as a Nurse, that I feel confident and competent in the services I offer, which is why i took a year of continued study before I started practicing injectable treatments - and that from someone who regularly injected, cannulated and sutured in her clinical role! Adding in premium clinical skincare lines and prescription weight loss services enables me to give a holistic range of options for all my patients.
I treat all of my patients exactly how I would like myself to be treated, with kindness and compassion, honesty and integrity.
