I worked as an information scientist for many years in the communication and drug industries in London then developed a keen interest in complementary therapy. In 2001 I qualified as a Reflexologist. The course involved an appreciation of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and in particular meridians and acupressure points on the feet and hands. I then trained in Polarity Therapy, which sparked an interest in Āyurvedic approaches to health and well-being and went on to learn Āyurvedic Face Massage. While in London I taught a Reflexology Diploma course and developed my own one-day Continuing Professional Development courses.
During those years I became interested in the benefits of sound from a therapeutic perspective and qualified in 2010 as a Sound Therapist training with the British Academy of Sound Therapy, Don Conreaux and his Gong Master training programme and a variety of other teachers via specialist workshops in various sound healing modalities. I am winding down my reflexology practice in 2018 to focus on my sound therapy work.
I am fully insured as a Sound Therapist. I moved back to my home town of Edinburgh in 2010 and established my practice in Whitehouse Loan, EH9 in central Edinburgh. It's on the borders of The Grange and can be reached easily from Marchmont, Tollcross, Bruntsfield, and Morningside.
