Since 1997 I have lived with the diagnosis of a chronic condition, as a result I have developed a particular interest in supporting clients living with the ongoing physical and mental health issues attributed to an auto-immune condition. I understand that these types of illness can present a complex range of physical and psychological symptoms that respond well to regular complementary therapy sessions. I can offer 90 minute sessions of aromatherapy, reflexology and reiki from consulting rooms in Shotts or Glasgow. I am a member of CTHA and you can check my embody listing here.

I teach yoga to help participants improve balance, strength and flexibility while using the breath to bring balance between the body and mind.

Companies & Communities

I believe that positive relationships and connections we have with family, work and our community can contribute to good physical and mental health. For this reason I am keen to connect with community projects, services, counsellors and complementary therapists that have a shared interested in supporting local people's health and wellbeing and developing local communities across Lanarkshire.

I can offer individual complementary therapy sessions, bespoke stress management or relaxation workshops and yoga classes in a variety of settings including: Schools, Third Sector Organisations, Local Businesses and Community Organisations to support staff and service users in groups or individual therapeutic support as required.

These services are designed to give employees, parents, carers and young people access to an experienced counsellor to equip them with the skills to manage the stresses of everyday life by positive decision making and developing suitable coping strategies.

Home. massage

Complementary Therapy


Is a slow rhythmic massage together with a bespoke blend of organic essential oils to help your body to release toxic waste. I work on the areas of the body that require the most attention on the day of your aromatherapy treatment to help your muscles release tension and re-balance your body and energy.


Works on principle that the entire human body is mapped across your feet and different parts of the body can be stimulated by working specific points on your feet. This treatment works purely on your feet, or the hands when the feet are contra-indicated.


Is a deeply relaxing treatment that works on your body's or energy levels to balance the flow energy through all your internal organs, muscles and systems in your body. Treatments are carried out fully clothed and hands can be placed directly on, or just above your body. Clients often report feeling relaxed and refreshed after their treatment.
