About Lynn

My name is Lynn and I am a fully vegan holistic therapist and stress manager.

My initial training was in Nutrition with the Nutritional Healing Foundation in 2004 and from there I went on to do Holistic Therapies at Cardonald College in Glasgow in 2008, followed by a post graduate course in Stress Management in 2009.

I am fully qualified, insured and experienced in Stress Management, Relaxation & Meditation, Nutrition, Reflexology and Hopi Ear Candling. I also do various forms of massage including Swedish Massage, Hot Stones Massage, Advanced Massage, (taught by Elaine Liechti, director of the Glasgow School of Shiatsu), Aromatherapy, Holistic Facial, Indian Head Massage and Deep Abdominal/Colonic Massage.

In addition to the therapies I also use Bach Flower Remedies & Jan de Vries Flower Essence.

I have worked with a wide range of clients in government, private, voluntary and corporate sectors. I have experience of working at a corporate level doing therapies & stress management in the workplace with big national companies and at government level with NHS, Glasgow City Council and Strathchlyde Police. I have also done voluntary work including Addiction Counselling in Paisley, therapies and stress management with patients on oncology wards, and with full-time carers at Renfrewshire Carers. I have also worked privately from a variety of natural therapy centre’s including Embody in Glasgow & Kilbarchan Chiropody. I have also done mobile work with Glasgow based agencies.

I have worked with clients for arthritis, panic attacks, nutrition, insomnia, OCD, ADHD, agoraphobia (fear of going out) and other phobias, Crohns disease, fertility problems, overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), asthma, high/low blood pressure, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), bereavement, depression, bipolar, stress, anxiety, anger, weight problems, muscular aches and pains, headaches, migraine, sinus problems and much, much more.

I was employed by Glasgow Clyde College as an Outreach Lecturer in Holistic Therapies and Stress Management for 5th & 6th year pupils across three different Glasgow high schools and to a much wider age group at the college itself.

I completed COSCA Counselling Skills with Alcohol Focus Scotland, and did Volunteer Addiction Counselling in Paisley Renfrewshire and I am continually involved in further training and CPD courses. I completed courses for Gambling Addiction followed by Auricular Acupuncture.
