Claire Mead – Owner

Before opening The Mulberry Spa, Claire first founded EDEN Beauty Clinic in 2009, having worked in the beauty industry since 2001. As EDEN’s success continued to grow, Claire knew she wanted to offer her clients even more…. So, The Mulberry Spa was launched in December 2017. Claire has transformed the beautiful Grade II listed building into a stunning spa facility and reinstated The Mitre Public House – bringing two amazing facilities to the village.
Claire Mead – Owner

Claire specialises in semi-permanent makeup, Plasma Pen, advanced electrolysis and advanced skin treatments, advising clients on the best technology, methods and products to improve a variety of skin concerns. The results she achieves speak for themselves! She is passionate about providing the very best selection of products and treatments alongside an exceptional and very personal service.

Claire is a true ‘people person’ whose bubbly, warm and welcoming personality shines through from the minute you meet her. As a busy Mum of 2, she knows how important her clients’ time at the spa can be and strives to make every appointment as positive and relaxing as possible. Claire would love to have a hobby, but there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day!

Laura Malone – Therapist

As a busy Mum of 2, Laura has enjoyed working in the beauty industry since 2007, taking a career break while her children were small. Enjoying the flexibility this sector provides to fit work around family life, Laura loves her role at The Mulberry Spa.

Laura is another one of our lash experts, producing gorgeous arrays of Russian, Volume or LVL lashes. She also enjoys doing nails and seeing the difference that can be achieved with the Lipofirm fat reduction treatments offered at the spa.

When not working or being a Mum, Laura chooses to relax by going to the gym or catching up with friends.

Emma Hill – Therapist

Emma has worked in the beauty sector since 2002, working for various salons before becoming a salon owner herself. Emma decided she wanted more balance from life and sold her salon, seeking employment in an exceptional spa environment instead – and we couldn’t wait for her to join the Mulberry team!

Emma specialises in nail treatments – acrylics, gels and other hand and feet treatments. Her experience is evident in her work – not just the quality of the nails she produces but also her professionalism and exceptional customer care. All qualities that we embrace at The Mulberry Spa.

Part of Emma’s new balanced life is spent with her partner, son and her dog – enjoying family time without the added pressures of running a business.

Hannah Alford – Therapist

Hannah has worked as a Beauty Therapist since 2012, covering all aspects of beauty from nails and waxing, Envion and CACI treatments and Lipofirm.

Hannah is a great addition to The Mulberry Spa team with a wide skillset, lots of experience and a friendly and welcoming personality.

Outside of work her energetic 4-year-old keeps her on her toes, so she embraces the calm and tranquil environment at The Mulberry Spa as soon as she arrives!
