Carolyn Claypole

In 1996 I gained my C.I.D.E.S.C.O. and I.T.E.C. honours Beauty Therapy and Electrolysis qualification following an intensive course at The Yorkshire College of Beauty. During my training I was entered by the college into the Sterex Electrolysis Student of the Year Competition, and I achieved second place winning my first Sterex Blend machine. As soon as I gained my electrolysis qualification I enrolled on an Advanced Electrolysis course to enable me to utilise my equipment to its full potential.

Following 5 years of enjoyable and rewarding electrolysis experience I decided to enrol on a teaching qualification to enable me to teach at my local college. During this course I was fortunate enough to teach electrolysis at Stamford College, although it was voluntary! I decided to enter a student into the Sterex Electrolysis Student of the Year competition and she won the regional competition and came second in the final. It was at this event that I first met Elaine Stoddart, Director of Education and PR for Sterex. Elaine asked me to become a trainer for Sterex.

As well as my role as Head Trainer for Sterex I also run my own successful clinic in Stamford and specialise in all 'needle work', Electrolysis Hair Removal, Advanced Cosmetic Procedures and Micropigmentation and feel blessed that I can say... I truly love my job. Electrolysis and Advanced Cosmetic Procedures are the two most enjoyable and important treatments a therapist can offer today.

Helen Clymer

Helen is the trainer for the Midlands.

I first found a joy for electrolysis when I was a student at college. Initially I struggled with electrolysis as I had a phobia of needles myself. I got over this by telling myself I was applying a probe into a pocket within the skin and not a needle like an injection. Once I overcame this hurdle I fell in love with electrolysis and later entered the Sterex Student of the Year Competition after being put forward by my lecturer. I went on to win my region. My confidence grew from strength to strength from that point on.

Later I went to work in a busy salon and as a result my expertise and practical experience grew ten fold and my client base steadily increased alongside this as a result.

My next career progression was working on luxury cruise liners where I gained a tremendous amount of experience. After a few years I decided to return to dry land, update my skills and start my own business.

Over the next few years I developed a thriving business but always keen on self improvement and with my constant thirst for knowledge I decided, alongside my business, to refresh my qualifications so I took my lecturing exams and gained a teaching post as well.

My business continues to grow by reputation and I now offer a growing number of services with electrolysis and Advanced Cosmetic Procedures being one of the most popular. There is nothing better than being part of making a difference to people’s lives and watching their individual confidence grow. As a result these two treatments are some of the most fulfilling treatments I do.

Hazel Critchlow

Hazel is the Sterex trainer for the North West area including Manchester.

I joined Sterex 10 years ago and I am one of the longest serving trainers. In the last 10 years I have had a wealth of experience in the delivery of Student Educational Days. In the Manchester region there are over 64 Colleges so I am kept very busy! I have visited most of them at some time over the last several years and received much praise from them.

I have qualifications from IHBC, City & Guilds, NVQ L3, 7307, Assessors awards and have been a practising Beauty Therapist for over 26 years. I have worked for many years as a therapist and also had my own large hairdressing and beauty salon.

At present I have my own business which I attend on a part time basis to meet my family commitments. This allows me to retain my skills and gives me hands on experience and variety in my career path. I also lecture at my local college teaching all aspects of Beauty Therapy.

I have a passion for Electrolysis and Advanced Cosmetic Procedures and have had many clients over the years who have been helped by these fantastic treatments.

Myschell Lyndle

Myschell is trainer for the East Region

My passion for the subject was ignited at the age of 14 when I was the first pupil at my high school to study Beauty Therapy. I passed the course with flying colours and launched my career with my own mobile business. My career has seen many challenges and has resulted in a life changing success story.

With practice in my own salon, teaching and training experience in the UK and abroad, I now have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the subject to share and I enthusiastically aim to inspire students into a career within the beauty industry.

I qualified in 1986 in IHBC and City & Guilds Beauty Therapy and Electrolysis. I have a wide range of experience to include transgender clients and was recently contacted to treat canine ingrown eyelashes by a well known veterinary practice. I have recently launched my own private practice where I offer Advanced Cosmetic Procedures and Blend electrolysis. With a working partnership with a doctor who performs IPL and Sclerotherapy, I offer a unique service in the South Norfolk area and beyond.

I am extremely excited about the opportunity to raise awareness of the perpetual success and transgression of electrolysis. It is wonderful to be able to offer this elite service with confidence. Support and professional development is second to none with Sterex Electrolysis International Ltd.

I absolutely love everything about Sterex and its ethos. I have 24 years full time teaching and have had successful businesses in this time and electrolysis was always the most enjoyable service I provided. I am passionate about electrolysis as the results are wonderful and I wholeheartedly endorse that fact. I am honoured to work with the Sterex team as their mission statement is to make an outstanding contribution to education and enhance the understanding of electrolysis and its benefits. I will be supporting Further and Private Education Colleges in Ireland and hope to enthuse them with the amazing skill of electrolysis. I very much look forward to engaging with the students and informing them of all the exciting Advanced Courses that Sterex offer.
