I was born and brought up locally, leaving to study Maths at Leeds University before returning and spending 33 years teaching Maths.
I am married and have a delightful son who sadly suffered an acquired brain injury during a minor operation 20 years ago. I have a strong interest in complementary therapies of many kinds.
I am passionate about the positive effects of HBO through the changes it has helped bring about in my son’s ongoing recovery – as well as what I have seen in our many sessions in the chamber. We are so lucky to have this facility here -our family has been involved since the Charity’s inception.

Zoe has lived and worked locally all her life, she is married with two children.
Although a qualified Teacher, Zoe spent the greater part of her career in commerce and was a joint owner and director of a large laundry company.
Her eldest child, Becky, now 27, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy / dyspraxia at age 3 and was unable to walk or talk.
“ I was searching for any treatments which might help my daughter when I heard of HBOT and was fortunate to meet Jane Dean who was trying to obtain a chamber and lived locally. I became a Trustee to A Breath for Life and Becky was one of the first children to receive oxygen treatment. I have no doubt that HBOT has given Becky a quality of life exceeding all expectations.
I am delighted to be a Trustee of A Breath for Life and I have seen for myself the difference it has made to so many people’s lives.”
