Practitioner Profile - Professional Background
"We are the meaning makers - we create the meaning of our lives
I have a busy private therapy practice in Edinburgh which I have run for 14 years, offering Reiki healing, life coaching, Human Givens counselling, advanced hypnotherapy and hypno-healing, NLP, and EFT. I use a natural, holistic approach to help people with all kinds of mental, emotional and physical problems, as well as with personal and spiritual development.
Reiki Master Teacher
Wide Range of Skills and Training
As a life coach, I have trained in personal and business coaching, Time-Line Therapy and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), and have a background in business and in personal effectiveness training.
As part of my continuing interest in developing my skills as a holistic healer, I have completed a post-graduate diploma in Human Givens brief solution-focused counselling and psychotherapy, and in addition, I am fully qualified in advanced hypnotherapy and hypno-healing, a qualification recognised by the NHS.
I have also trained as a volunteer Victim Support worker and as an AIDS support "buddy" for the Waverley Care Trust.
I graduated in Modern Languages and Law from Edinburgh University in 1976, and then taught abroad and in Edinburgh for a number of years before taking a career break to bring up my family.
I subsequently trained and worked as a volunteer for several years with individuals and groups (both children and adults), exploring issues of self-awareness, personal development, leadership and interpersonal skills.
During the course of my career, I spent six years working in business in the field of medical sales and marketing.
