After many years of practising throughout the Highlands and Islands, I now offer treatments and workshops in Orkney.

The aim of the workshop is to offer techniques and healing to encourage relaxation and stress relief – something most of us rarely find time to do. Everyone experiences stress in their lives, but we can greatly reduce the effect it has on our minds and bodies. This workshop offers practical advice on how to do just that – learn simple, effective techniques, practise them and feel the benefit! The workshop is open to all - whether you have some experience of relaxation techniques and meditation, or whether the concept is completely new to you, you will hopefully find it helpful and, most importantly, relaxing!!
Crystal healing can be practised by anyone, we only need to learn to follow our hearts and instinctively we will know what is right for us. Workshop content may vary although in each you will learn how to choose, care for and use crystals in your daily life; discover the healing properties of crystals and how to work with them; enjoy guided meditations and have the opportunity to design and work with healing mandalas for yourself and others.
In our day-to-day lives we are faced with many situations which affect us on all levels of our Being. Exposure to electro-magnetic radiation from computers, mobile phones etc; road rage; geopathic stress; negative outbursts from other people; graphic and upsetting images from the media; stressful situations – all can have a profound effect on our mental, emotional and physical health. It is, however, possible to take action to help prevent this. In this workshop, we will cover the many situations which can affect us and learn to use a number of simple techniques and tools which can be easily incorporated into our daily lives to minimise these effects.
Chakras & the Energy Body
This workshop explains how our energy body and chakra system work and how they affect every part of our lives. As well as practical exercises and meditation, we will learn about each of the seven main chakras and how they resonate with us on all levels - physically, mentally and emotionally. Through meditation, crystals, colours and essential oils we will also discover how to ensure they are as healthy and balanced as possible.
Everyone has encountered Angels in some way, shape or form but few realise they are constantly around and just waiting to be asked for help. They represent healing and supportive frequencies on which we can all draw any time we feel the need. In this workshop, through guided visualisations, crystals and sound techniques, we will learn how to access and work with these energies to help in all aspects of our lives.
Aromatherapy – Home Remedy Chest
Use of essential oils is not restricted to massage! This workshop aims to show you just how many uses they have in our daily lives, from health remedies to housework. Learn which oils are a vital part of any medicine cabinet, how to use them and when to avoid them; discover how to use them safely around the house and garden. As well as covering the many uses and applications of each of the chosen oils, there is also the opportunity in the workshop for practical work and relaxation. (As some of the oils covered are not recommended during pregnancy, this workshop is not advised when pregnant.)
Often spread over two sessions, massage workshops focus on upper back, neck and shoulders, arms, hands and face treatments - all instruction is for home use and these are non-certificated courses. The workshops include discussion on carrier oils, working with essential oils and practical applications. Full instruction is given and there is ample opportunity for practical work during the sessions.
Sound and Spirit Healing
Using a combination of sound and shamanic techniques, this workshop aims to restore balance, improve wellbeing and increase awareness of our inner voice and strengths. The session includes mantra, journeying meditations and working with the healing drum.
Everything on the planet has a vibration! When we are unwell, feeling out of sorts or generally feel as though our lives are not flowing quite as well as they might, it is due to something affecting our vibrational frequency. This can be absolutely anything but may well include stress of some sort, environmental conditions, emotional trauma or unresolved issues. The good news is that we can do something to redress this and return our bodies to a state of health and wellbeing. In this workshop we use colour, sound, crystals, flower essences and other forms of vibrational healing to do just that.
Indian Head Massage
Based on traditional practices and the Ayurvedic system of healing, this therapy has been known to alleviate many conditions, from stress, sinusitis and tinnitus to headaches, anxiety and muscular tension. In the workshop there will be a mixture of theory and practical work so that you can learn how to offer treatment to friends and family, as well as on yourself.
