How our team works

Your safety and well-being is our number one concern. We pride ourselves on outstanding customer experience and on providing our staff with a happy work-place. It’s all about giving you ample time to explain your concerns as well as allowing our staff to carry out treatments in a relaxed, clinically safe environment.

Beginning Your Journey

When you visit Freyja Medical for your initial consultation, you will be assessed by one of the medical team, whose first goal is to truly understand your motivation for seeking advice & treatment.

The consultation process includes taking a thorough medical history & an advanced examination of your skin. Any contra-indications to specific treatments will be considered. You will be provided with information, including likely benefits, costs, & possible risks as well as any downtime.

Wonderful staff, wonderful service, have already booked my next treatment. Highly recommend.

Our Team

Dr. James Dean and Dr. Keli Thorsteinsson co-founded Freyja Medical in 2017 and since have been committed to the well-being and safety of their clients as well as providing top quality aesthetic practices.

Dr. James Dean

An experienced skin specialist doctor and author of the book on medical aesthetics ‘More Than Skin Deep’, Dr James Dean has helped thousands of people both in his NHS dermatology work and in over a decade of aesthetic medical practice.

Having co-founded Freyja Medical Clinic in 2017 together with Dr Thorsteinsson, they developed their unique methodology to help with natural result facial aesthetics. He finds particular satisfaction (and great results!) when combining all the best elements of his experience in dermatology with the latest developments in cosmetic medicine. Dr Dean is passionate about supporting the training of the next generation of skin doctors with his Honorary Tutor role at Cardiff University on the postgraduate dermatology course, as well as continuing his clinical practice in the NHS.

Dr. Keli Thorsteinsson

Dr Thorsteinsson is a specialist in dermatology, skin cancer diagnosis, reconstructive surgery, and aesthetic medicine. He has successfully carried out many thousands of skin procedures on NHS and private patients over the past decade.

He has written educational material for various medical publications including the British Medical Journal Learning and undertaken teaching for the Cardiff Diploma in Practical Dermatology and medical students at Keele University. He is co-founder and director of the Freyja Medical Clinic in Wrexham. Originally from Iceland, he enjoys outdoor pursuits including skiing, diving, mountain biking, and motorcycling. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Shropshire.

Clare Wyatt - Aesthetic Nurse

Clare has over 20 years of nursing experience and has spent many of these years working in the field of Cancer Care and community care. She worked predominantly in the city of Edinburgh but it was during her time working in the Middle East that she developed an interest in Aesthetics Nursing which has developed into a true passion.

She has trained in many aspects of aesthetics since relocating to Cheshire in 2012 and is continually training to enable her to offer the most up to date products and practices available.

She is kept busy with 2 young boys and loves meeting up with friends and family as well as trying to squeeze in some running and cycling!

Hattie Klein

Hi, I'm Hattie! I joined Freyja Medical as an Aesthetic Therapist in 2020. I've worked in the skincare and beauty industry for over 7 years and have loved every minute of it! Working at Freyja Medical allows me to practice aesthetic beauty treatments in a safe medical environment where I can learn the latest aesthetic technologies and treatments.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with the dogs, my stepson and partner and socialising with friends!

Sigita Tumaviciene

I'm Sigita and I recently joined the team as an Aesthetic Therapist.

I always practice what I preach which helps me give clients an honest and informative opinion into what will help them achieve their skin goals.

Restoring self confidence, happy clients, bright smiles and beautiful healthy skin are my rewards for being an Aesthetic Therapist.

Skincare is a journey and I am excited to see returning clients in clinic at Freyja Medical.

I truly believe healthy skin is a reflection of overall inner wellness.

Nicki - PA to the Directors

I’m Nicki, Dr Dean and Dr Thorsteinsson’s Personal Assistant which basically means I get to boss them around! I have worked in the medical industry for 20+ years in various administrative roles. I love my job and couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

Outside work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, which usually involves food, as eating is my favourite hobby! As a family, we enjoy walking our dog and travelling.

I am very loyal, honest and hard-working. I believe in treating people how you would want to be treated yourself and I always try to see the best in people.

Catherine - Receptionist

Hi I'm Catherine, I started at Freyja in Feb 2018 as reception cover on a Saturday. I enjoyed the role so much that I quit my day job of 16 years in the civil service - to work full-time at Freyja. My role is front-of-house/reception/barista and generally making all our lovely customers welcome.

In my previous roles, a was Assistant Manager at Lunn Poly and before that I completed my BA (Hons) degree in Swansea in Conservation and Planning. I enjoy spin classes, football (watching not playing), planning my next holiday, reading, and a glass of Malbec.

Lauren - Client Care and Marketing Assistant

Hi, I’m Lauren, and I am the Client care and Marketing Assistant here at Freyja.

I am a bubbly, fun-loving person who likes to laugh at pretty much everything, and I don’t like taking life too seriously. When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my family, walking and biking.

I am a mum to one daughter, step mum to another (god help with two girls) and I am a fur-baby mum to a cocker spaniel Rosie - The favourite (just don’t tell the others).

Heidi - Clinic Administrator

Hi, I’m Heidi and I’m excited to be part of the Freyja team as a Clinic Administrator. Before joining Freyja I spent 11 years experiencing both sales and purchase ledger departments at a large local agricultural company. Most of my work takes place in the back office with the accounts side but I do escape every so often to help out on reception! At home, I’m kept busy with my 9-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son with crafts and outdoor activities. We love to get out walking our chocolate Labrador Freddie. My other loves include good food and wine. To keep healthy, I love to go for a good run and participate in organised local events.

Sophia - Receptionist

Hi, I'm Sophia the newest member of the Reception team at Freyja working mainly in the Nantwich clinic. Having worked within the beauty industry for over 7 years, dermatology and aesthetics is something I've always had a keen interest in.
I have recently moved to the area from Essex to live with my partner Dan and our crazy Collie, Jessie. In my spare time I like to travel back to Essex as much as I can to see my family and friends but Cheshire is certainly starting to feel like home! I'm looking forward to this new journey at Freyja and can't wait to get to know all of the lovely clients.
