Soul Sista first started in 2004

With our humble beginnings in boho chic Fitzroy, and our second home in the friendly community village of North Carlton - we've now settled across the river to funky downtown Windsor.

Hello, I'm Catherine!

Soul Sista Beauty Therapy (Crabtree Urban Spa, back in the day) is run by Catherine Thorpe, who has close to 30 years of experience as a beauty and massage therapist.
In 2014 Catherine retrained to get herself up to date with current trends and more extensive services now offered in the beauty therapy industry. She studied at Elly Lukas Beauty Therapy College and completed her second Diploma of Beauty Therapy in 2017.
Since furthering her studies, Catherine has developed a better understanding and a renewed passion about the skin and its functions, the importance of lymphatic drainage, correct techniques for microdermabrasion and enzyme peels, among others.
