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.


Emma Jones

I’m a registered nurse and nurse prescriber with over 22 years experience with 7 years in aesthetics. I’m passionate about the aesthetics industry and love bringing new services to our clients.

I’m a Mum to 2 kids, 2 cats and a dog. I am my own worst critic but learning to be kinder to myself and striving to live my best life.

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!

Dr Britton is a well-respected consultant dermatologist and has over 25 years’ experience in the specialty.

He has a large practice of patients with many other skin conditions. These include acne using isotretinoin (Roaccutane) and psoriasis using biologicals (the new injectable treatments for psoriasis). He has a very simple approach to eczema to reduce inflammation in the damaged skin barrier by showing patients how to use topical treatments with excellent results.

Most important to him is to support a person as an individual, knowing how how much long term skin conditions can affect a someone’s life.


Anna is a fully qualified Medical Tattooist, Semi Permanent Makeup Artist, Scar Therapist, Skin Camouflage Practitioner & Advanced Skincare Specialist who works as a medical photographer in the NHS. She became interested in ways to help people recover at the end of their surgical journey, as many patients would feel self-conscious of scarring and felt "incomplete" after breast reconstructive surgery.

She believes that it is important to do everything possible to improve a person's wellbeing and restore their self-confidence following a possibly life changing event. Working together, she will provide a bespoke service, getting the best outcome for you.

Care of the patient always at the heart of everything & they won't treat what you don't need & will kindly manage expectations. The results speak for themselves."
