I am a Human Givens Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist, Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistics Programming (NLP), and a former Registered General Nurse. Inner Harmony was established in 2003 as a counselling and stress management service, offering counselling for individuals and couples, and most recently, personal retreats. My practise is based in Perth, and my clients travel from all over the UK for therapy and a personal retreat.
At all times my aim is to promote the health and well-being of people I come into contact with.
Whilst working as a nurse I was well aware of how stress was a major health issue and I often wondered how I could improve the health of individuals affected by this ‘dis-ease’ of the modern world.
In 1998 I established a Renal Support Group (RSG) to meet the psychosocial needs of renal patients and their families. The aim was to provide a forum where patients and their families could come together in an informal setting and receive information and support on different aspects of the illness and its treatment. I also began to study subjects such as ‘How to break the cycle of depression’ and ‘Effective anger management’, and in the process learnt about a new approach to emotional health and clear thinking. It was called ‘Human Givens Therapy’. This approach made so much sense to me and I realised that this was how I could help other people live happy, healthy lives.
Since completing my Diploma as a Human Givens Psychotherapist, I have compled further training in Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). The combination of these approaches has increased my professional expertise, given me an understanding of the brain, and taught me the principles and techniques to deal effectively with the most common emotional disorders.

For the past sixteen years I have also been a volunteer with the Fife branch Region of Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland (CBCS) – a national charity that provides free counselling to anyone who contacts us. Initially I worked as a bereavement counsellor and I am now participating as a counselling supervisor. I have also spent many years on the management committee. I continue to attend regular training on matters relating to bereavement.
As a therapist I ensure good practice and commitment to my continued professional development. I agree to uphold the ethical and professional standards of the following organisations of which I am a member:
- Human Givens Institute (MHGI)
- UK Guild of Hypnotist Examiners (UKGHE)
I hold a current enhanced disclosure certificate from the CRBS.
I am pleased to say that over the years I have contributed to improving the emotional and physical health of individuals troubled with stress and stress-related illnesses. I have helped clients:
- Free themselves from emotional problems such as anxiety, anger and depression to enable them to enjoy life once again.
- Who have been traumatised by abusive relationships, car accidents, combat experience and complications of child-birth to live their life without flashbacks or bad memories.
- Who have low confidence or no self-belief and who feel panicky and cannot sleep at night, to restore harmony and balance to their emotional energy, as well as achieve a greater sense of control, confidence and self-esteem.
- Overcome addictions, compulsive behaviour, fears or phobias so they feel in control.
- Adjust to loss and grief and find purpose and meaning in life again.
The above is just a sample of the varied problems that I have helped my clients to resolve so they can live happy, healthy lives once again.
