I live with my partner and three children in Glasgow. I teach yoga classes in Glasgow, including healing and therapeutic restorative yoga and meditation and Yoga for the Chakras workshops based on my recently published book. I also offer one to one sessions for holistic Mental and Physical Health, where I draw upon my experince and background in yoga, breathwork, meditation and Reiki, my training in Yoga Therapy, my Clinical Psychology training and many years of experience in mental health, to provide 'whole person' therapy, tailored for each individual to improve health, well-being and happiness. I am currently training in Hypnotherapy and am excited to be offering this soon !
After gaining my BSc in Psychology from Stirling University, I worked for the mental health charity MIND for several years in London, before beginning my training in Clinical Psychology at UEL. After gaining my MSc in Clinical Psychology in 1993, I worked for Camden and Islington NHS trust, specialising in Primary care mental health and in HIV/AIDS/Sexual health, for over 5 years.
During this time I began practising yoga and was amazed at the difference it made to both my physical well-being and peace of mind. I returned to Scotland and began working in a Stress Centre as Groupwork and Training Co-ordinator where I developed a range of courses and classes covering all aspects of stress-management and mental well-being.
I completed my 500 hour yoga teacher training with Yoga Scotland, in 2005. Following my training I became a columnist with the Sunday Herald magazine, writing the popular columns 'The Simple Guide to Fitness' and 'Balance: Mind, Body and Spirit', I also gained my Reiki 2, qualification with Liz Napier, and co-authored the book, Awakening the Chakras through Yoga. I have continued to study yoga and have trained with many excellent teachers including Judith Hanson Lasater to teach restorative yoga, and Swami Saradananda, to teach meditation.. I recently completed my training in Yoga Therapy with the Scottish School of Yoga Therapy..and completed the 50 hour training in Yin Yoga
My studies, combined with yoga, breathwork, Reiki and my background in Clinical Psychology have allowed me to develop a truly holistic approach to improving health and well-being.and my soon to be added training in Hypnotherapy will empower and strengthen my healing work.
