Help and Input Needed!

Yet again I haven’t posted anything for ages. This time it’s because I’ve had a few projects on the go, the main one was the revising of my book, Why Does Stress Make Us Ill? I wanted to add two more chapters and also take into account the impact covid and lockdown has had on us collectively and individually. This is now complete, for more details go here –

The other projects included three online courses I attended via live-stream, these needed a fair amount of follow up and personal work, all very time consuming.

This week I am beginning to build an online course of my own. This is for people who struggle with feeling exhausted, flat and unmotivated yet are constantly tense with an overactive mind.

The course aims to help people solve this struggle and move to where they long to be with renewed physical vitality, mental clarity and emotional ease.

I’d really appreciate some input from anyone who’d like to share their opinion of the following:

The working title so far is Tired and Wired and I’m wondering if, from the title alone, do you get a clear sense of what the course is about?

And if the following is relevant to you, what frustrates or disheartens you the most about the experience of ongoing tiredness coupled with difficulty relaxing?

Ongoing fatigue – Do you frequently feel exhausted? Wake up tired? Do you feel more tired now than you did a year ago?

Anxiety and stress – Are you anxious, overwhelmed, overly stressed or fearful? Worried about the future?

If you’d like to share anything with me please do so in the comments section or if you’d rather it was private then send an email – you can find the address on the contact page at

Thankyou! And I will share more details as I create the course.

I have been passionate about health and well-being since my teenage years when a health problem prompted me to use diet to regain my strength. By the end of the 80's I was working as a chef in a Rudolf Steiner based vegetarian cafe in Edinburgh and this led me (through working with some very alternatives types!) to pursue a career as a massage therapist and healer, which I began in 1990. Since then I have trained in many different forms of therapy, including Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming), EmoTrance (a form of deeply mindful emotional processing). I retired completely from bodywork in 2017 and at present only occasionally work as a 1:1 therapist. My focus now is teaching and I have been doing this since 1991 when I taught Aromatherapy and massage courses for the Edinburgh Council Adult Education Programme, by the time I finished these courses in 2000 I had also taught aromatherapy/massage sessions across Edinburgh in Community Centers, Health Projects and a variety of other non profit organisations. By this time however I was beginning to develop Stress Management and later Meditation and personal development courses/sessions and was including corporate settings as well as private teaching events. The list of places I have taught in is extensive and over the past three decades I've no doubt forgotten quite a few! I am dedicated to personal development, health and meditation and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to each session. I am well aware of the struggles, often hidden from work colleagues, that many go through during the course of their life and endeavor always to be kind, non-intrusive and in a work setting discreet.

  1. Could it be ‘Tired and Wired?’ – with a question mark so folks know it’s about them. I’ll have a ponder about the other things 🙂
