I grew up in Edinburgh and then Glasgow before moving to the Moray coast in Scotland in my early twenties. I lived there for over 20 years and this is where my two daughters were born and brought up. After many happy years in this area my partner and I decided to move to further south to a small village in rural Perthshire. We now live in Perth, having moved here due to family illness.
My business background has been mainly in the Financial Services and Insurance industries, having been both a Bank Manager and Mortgage Advisor in my time. Prior to that, when the children were small, I was involved with running a small rural General Store and an Entertainment business based near the mouth of the River Spey. Great for raising young children, not so great for earning a good income! I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) 2 years ago when I was looking for something that would allow me to help my partner, who was seriously ill, and myself improve our lives. I had always been fascinated with the idea that our thoughts and memories could be altered to allow healing and improved health and still enjoy helping family and friends to change their lives using these techniques. I have always loved playing music and have played the clarinet and saxophone in many groups ranging from wind bands to big bands and still enjoy playing in a Saxophone Quartet called The Moray Saxophone Quartet.
Creation Social Media
In 2011 I formed Creation Social Media - a company with the primary purpose of Management and Training for businesses to assist them in promoting themselves through the Social Media platforms available on the Internet.
