Emily receives ‘Student of the Year’ award from college


A JUNIOR Therapist at the award-winning Rhona Gillmore clinic in Taunton has recently won the title of ‘Student of the Year’ at Exeter College (July 2019).

Emily Branton, who comes from near Cullompton, has just completed her Beauty Therapy (City & Guilds) course with top marks including gaining 100% in her Advanced Nutrition Programme (ANP) training.

Rhona Gillmore said:

“This is wonderful news and we’re absolutely delighted for Emily. It was great to see her name in lights and to see us mentioned in the programme for the awards evening too, where we were given the description of ‘renowned’. What a wonderful honour!

“Emily is a very dedicated, focused and studious young lady. She has been working for us here at the clinic on a part-time basis while doing her course at the college for the past two years and joined our team on a full-time basis at the start of July, so is just starting to build up her client base here.

“We now have the award on show in the reception area in the clinic for all to see and are very proud of it and all Emily has achieved.”

Emily is currently learning all the facial treatments at the clinic and is able to offer clients manicures, pedicures and eyelash tints.

She shares Rhona’s passion for nutrition and the importance of being healthy on the inside if you want to have glowing, radiant skin on the outside.

Emily explained:

“It was such a lovely surprise to receive this award and I am so proud of all that I have achieved, and that all my hard work has paid off. I love my work, I enjoy interacting with clients and I’m committed to carving out a wonderful career for myself here at Rhona Gillmore’s.”

Emily has Level 2 & 3 Technical Diplomas in Beauty Therapy (City & Guilds) and studied nail treatments, waxing, electrical treatments, massage and spa therapies during her course.

Rhona launched her clinic in Park Street, Taunton more than 45 years ago and is one of the best-known and respected skin care experts in Taunton.

She added:

“Feeling good and looking your best starts on the inside, it’s all about the health and well-being of your gut. The skin is the largest waste disposal organ of the body and the connection between what you eat and drink, and the health of your digestive system, all play a massive role in how the skin reacts. This, subsequently, shapes the way you look.

“At the heart of all our therapies, we offer a deeper level of understanding of how the skin and body works. We aim to maximise your expectations when you visit our clinic, through sensible nutritional changes, which will improve your digestive system.

“We also use the safest and most effective technological treatments and have sourced amazing products you can use at home that really do make a difference. All go hand-in-hand in achieving realistic results for your skin and body.

“We provide genuine, honest advice and we only treat you if it is really going to make a difference to how you feel and look. We give you the guidance, knowledge and expertise to help you get the best results for any issues you may have.

“As clinic treatments are the most successful when supported by a good daily regime, working in partnership with you, we provide you with the facts and products you need, so you are better equipped to look after your skin at home to achieve longer-lasting results.

“You may think everyone is different, but, in reality, we’re really very similar. We take the mystery out of working out what has gone wrong with your skin, so along with simple changes to your nutritional lifestyle, we can achieve amazing results. We call this approach ‘Beauty through Health’.”
