Hi, I’m Fiona Degler and I am employed by High Park as Aromatherapist. I work 4 days a week. My role is to coordinate the massage offer across school, to offer aromatherapy advice, guidance and bespoke training support across the whole school and provide advice and resources to support our pupils and families at home.


My therapeutic strategies include Aromatherapy massage, deep pressure and peer massage, which help support our pupil’s emotional regulation and teaches them how to manage their emotions. An anxious child cannot learn, Aromatherapy strategies enable our pupils to be well regulated and available for learning.

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils and massage for therapeutic and healing effect. The oils are administered via application to the skin (with or without massage) or by inhalation. These work to increase energy levels, aid relaxation, calm, promote physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Deep Pressure activities are very calming, meet our pupil’s sensory needs and again offers opportunities for regulation and relaxation.
