Kara Huggins

I’m Kara - clinic founder and director.


I’m a registered Nurse with over 10 years of nursing experience and 8+ years facial aesthetic experience. I’m a National Expert for Vivacy Uk - teaching and training medical professionals across the UK in the use of dermal fillers and botulinum toxin type A. 

I’m a mum to 3 beautiful children and believe it’s better to have done it and regret it, than to regret never doing it all.

Gabby parker

I’m Gabby - Lead Nurse.


I'm a registered adult nurse of almost 6 years with a background in oncology. I trained in aesthetics around 4 years ago but it was a year ago I found my home at The Sanctum.  I have had the craziest but best year and absolutely love making people feel good about themselves.


I am a mummy to my handsome little 2 year old who has me in stitches daily and is a definite mummy’s boy.


My life motto is 100% YOLO  - do what makes you happy.

Kirsten Waldron

I’m Kirsten - Skin Therapist.


I’m a beauty therapist with 14 years experience. I absolutely adore my industry! Making people feel confident in their own skin is an amazing job to have! My favourite treatment to do is facials- all things skin!

Always be the best you can be and you will go far in life.
