About

My business is all about personal growth and freedom from internal limitations. To this end I offer personal therapy sessions, courses, books and meditations.

Therapy – In 1989 I embarked upon my first massage course, this led to training in healing, energy release work and aromatherapy. From the beginning of the 2000’s my focus changed to personal growth and change-work and the main modalities studied were EFT, EmoTrance (a form of counselling that encourages the client to release feelings stored in the body), NLP, Hypnotherapy, Theta Healing and Digging (ways of getting to the core of an issue) and Mindfulness for Stress Reduction. I have my own home based practice and have worked in various private and public sector centres.

Teaching – 1992 – 2000 I taught massage and aromatherapy for Edinburgh Council Adult Education Programme and many community and health projects. From 2000 my interest in teaching shifted from bodywork to stress reduction and relaxation, a couple of years later adding meditation, mindfulness, personal and spiritual growth. I also taught EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and Reiki Practitioner Training.

Personal -I have had a keen interest in health and well-being since my teenage years when an illness prompted me to use diet to regain health and strength. A few years later working as a chef in a vegetarian restaurant in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket sparked off an interest in all things alternative. By my early twenties I had enrolled on my first Therapeutic Massage course. I love the outdoors, walking, cycling, meditation and learning new modalities in personal and spiritual growth. (I have been on a lot more courses than are mentioned above!)
