Name: Emma Brimson
Job: Aesthetician (AKA fat buster!) at The Cheshire Aesthetic Clinic
Born: Peterborough - the shame!
Education: Did A levels at Queens Park High School and then an eclectic mix of further qualifications
Family: Happily unmarried with two lovely children
I normally wake around 7am, check my ‘to do’ list for the day and take a few moments to check the news before jumping in the shower.
Now my children are slightly older (12 and nine), they’re becoming far more self-reliant in the mornings and it helps that they are enthusiastic about heading off to school – in fact my daughter Isabella loves going to The Queens School so much that she often leaves before I am even up and arrives before they have opened the school gates!
After getting ready for work, I’ll drive my son to his lovely school Belgrave before heading into The Cheshire Aesthetic Clinic to begin my working day or meet Jane my fellow aesthetician for a meeting or to make a plan.
I really love my job at the clinic! I get so much satisfaction from literally seeing the inches drop off my clients after they’ve had a treatment – and since it’s such a lovely relaxing environment, we’ll often have a good chat to the point that I rarely feel I am working.
Time in the clinic for me feels more like meeting up with a constant round of friends.
Being based at The Beehive Healthcare is the perfect blend of work and lifestyle for me.
It allows me to get all my exercise taken care of in gaps between clients so I can join in with Helen’s amazing bodyworx pilates or piyo classes which I absolutely love.
I also thoroughly enjoy Emma’s Vintage Kicks class - even if my technique leaves a lot to be desired but we do still have a great time!
Not surprisingly, my working day flies by and before I know it, it is time to head off on the school run.
Like most nine-year-old boys, my son Will is completely crazy about football so I often have to be the poor substitute for a Dad and play football with him in the park or if I am lucky, persuade some of his friends to come and play too.
He also plays for Upton Junior team so he’ll often have training or matches which gives me a chance to catch up with other parents on the sidelines.
Isabella sings with the Chester Cathedral Choir so often, we’ll go to the early service and then walk home together through town, sometimes grabbing a bite to eat on the way.
By the time we’ve finished homework, chatted about our day and prepared for school and work, it’s bedtime for the children and chance for me to unwind with a glass of wine and box set or catch up with friends on Skype.
What do you wear to do your job?: I usually wear a little black dress.
What is the favourite part of your job?: Definitely my clients! love catching up with them. I also feel a tremendous sense of satisfaction to see the inches dropping off and I’m sure I feel as excited as they do to see their great results!
What is the least favourite part of your job?: When a client comes to end of their course of treatments. I miss them!
What would be your dream job if you weren’t doing what you do now?: I’d like to be a psychiatrist based in New York to the stars so I could hear all their secrets!
How do you relax when you are not working?: I love going to pilates at Beehive Healthcare, Helen is such a great instructor. I also enjoy going to the South of France to visit my parents, a couple of glasses of Rose always makes me relax!
What is your favourite film?: The Sound of Music. I have always loved it but my daughter toured with a West End cast in Dubai and Bahrain so it also has special memories for that reason.
What is your favourite book?: I do love ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’ - I find that nurture/nature debate endlessly fascinating.
What is your favourite song?: Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder. Someone bought me a card that played it when you opened the card when my daughter Isabella was born. Love it!
If a film was made of your life, who would you like to play you?: Don’t know but i would like Dominic Cooper to play my boyfriend!
Have you had your 15 minutes of fame yet?: No but there is still time.
