"As busy people, life can take over and the last person you ever find time to look after is you"
I recognise from my own experience how we can find it increasingly difficult to look after ourselves, due to our busy and stressful lifestyles.
This is what inspired me to set up my own practice as a holistic therapist in 2018 at The Hygge Clinic in Kirkwall on the beautiful Orkney islands, after a career in the corporate world.
Back in 2014, having benefited from similar therapies, and after much soul searching, I started to study Aromatherapy and then went on to requalify as a holistic therapist.
It was the best move I ever made - I love my job!
We moved to central Scotland in the summer of 2019 for my husband's work & my therapy room came too!
Within my home in Alloa I offer indulgent treatments using naturally beautiful, good for skin ingredients. I have also developed the gorgeous sustainable Facepack Facial Subscription Box for use at home which I am launching in February 2021.
I am a member of The Guild of Holistic Therapists, The Guild of Beauty Therapists & BABTAC (British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology).
Sustainability is a particular interest of mine that stretches through every part of my life from the food we eat, to a chemical free home, preserving energy and using clothing made from sustainable fabrics as much as is possible, and I carry this forward into my workplace using sustainable brands for my treatments, and to clean my treatment room.
I also limit as much as possible the amount of single use items used for treatments through the use of cloths, which are washed at high temperatures to keep them sterile and proper sterilisation for implements.
As well as being a holistic therapist, I promote sustainable and chemical free cleaning at ENJO UK with Fiona Dalziel - I have used no chemicals to clean for over 4 years, my cleaning takes me no time at all and my home has never been cleaner!
During lockdown in May 2020, I set up a networking group for women in Central Scotland. We now have over 500 members and it is a great source of inspiration, friendship and support for myself and our members.
