Welcome to my page!

I am a certified Havening Techniques practitioner as well as an outdoor therapist, based in the beautiful north west of Scotland. I came to therapy work from a background of sports coaching, which has given me a  wealth of knowledge  in psychology, and physiology, as well as extensive experience working through the many psychological challenges athletes face. Working with children and adults of all ages, this work has taught me the valuable skill of working with each individual in the unique way that they develope best.  I have since moved on to focus more on using rock climbing and the outdoors as a therapy, taking with me what coaching, as well as my own experience with chronic illness has taught me. I have now worked in outdoor therapy with a wide range of clients, including people with special needs , learning difficulties, people with physical impairments , as well as people suffering from anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and those looking to use the outdoors or Climbing as an aid to personal development.

Based just outside Lochinver in the north west of Scotland I offer Havening sessions in person, either here in the quiet and peaceful setting  of loch assynt, or else if it is more convenient for you, I can arrange to travel to your home within a 50 mile radius, including Inverness. I also offer online Zoom sessions for clients across the world.

Please dont hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like more information on Havening sessions or the outdoor therapy sessions I offer.
