Catriona has 30 years’ experience of working and supporting adults and children in health and education settings. She has a wealth of experience in working with people who have physical and mental health issues.
Her knowledge and experience in the field of health mean she has a strong understanding of the mind/body connection and how our physical state directly impacts on our emotional well-being.
With simple changes to self-care (exercise, nutrition and sleep) people find their emotional well-being improves. She believes in finding a balance which brings equilibrium to the physical and emotional state of being human. She will endeavour, within the effective HG model, to support and enable people to restore their balance and feel better quickly and efficiently using their own resources.
Catriona has a broad and varied experience of working with women, young adults and children and has a deep and profound understanding of how life changes can impact on emotional and physical equilibrium.
She has a particular interest in working with women with PMS, PND, fertility concerns, birthing concerns and those women who are perimenopausal, menopausal and post-menopausal.
She welcomes all enquiries regarding any emotional support needed from anyone with any concerns they may have about their emotional well-being.

Most of the in- person clients have an initial 90 min sessions but they can request the duration, there is no obligation to have a 90 min session. This duration changes as the client’s mental and physical health quickly improves and they progress to the shorter 60 min session and longer intervals between each sessions. (Please note all zoom session are 60 min long).
These 90 min sessions allow time for 60 mins of reflection and exploration. Then 30 mins Guided Imagery and Relaxation.
The therapy can include the making of a bespoke relaxation audio recording to use between sessions, limitless text support (within office hours) and email support. Clients also have access to my urgent appointment slots on Fridays should the need arise.
The fees at Feed The Soul reflects the fast, effective results that are generally achieved with each client. There will not be months and months of therapy to pay for. HG is a brief and solution focussed therapy. The sessions are not designed to be multiple or long term.
Catriona's intention is to work with client to achieve the outcome they want in as short a time-frame as possible so they can move on, fully equipped for the next life chapter.
The first step forwards is the hardest.
All the rest will just follow.
