Who, What and Where
All our therapists are suitably qualified, experienced and trained and take a great deal of pride in the work that they do. Given this is about your health and well being, we would never provide you with anyone who is not qualified in their discipline or field.
We are all committed to delivering a high quality level of service to ensure that your experience is one that meets your needs and is positive in every way.

Where Do Sessions Take Place?
Connecting Therapies try to be as fexible as we can to fit in with your busy life so we can be as openly accessible as we can possibly be.
Daytime, Evening and Weekend Appointments Available.
We hold open group based treatment sessions on an outreach basis in appropriate venues in local communities across East Lothian, Midlothian and Edinburgh.
Thanks for taking the time to look at our website and what we believe can support us all to find that healthy balance in life. As you can tell, we are passionate about the many benefits of alternative and complementary therapies and in our genuine belief that it is important for us all to ensure we do practice our own forms of self care. Our resilience is not bottomless and is our greatest asset in life.
We have gained a wealth of professional and personal experience in the areas of health and well being gained over a combined 45 years of employment across the public, voluntary and private sectors. Over the course of these many years, we have taken up roles and positions as practitioners, at management/senior management levels and served on boards of directors across a range of health focused services, charities, community projects and agencies. We have engaged with and worked with many people from all backgrounds, ages and communities to develop, fund, manage, implement and deliver health related services, supports and interventions.
What we have learnt from our experiences is that life can be a challenge to manage in a way that keeps us safe, well and with the levels of resilience we personally feel we need to be aware of and value our self care. What we have also learnt from those same experiences is that it is human nature to spend so much of our time and energy on other areas of our lives that we can forget about or place less focus on ourselves.
What we can assure you of is that you will be treated at all times with respect, acceptance, empathy and warmth and our strong belief in the person centered model of practice places you at the heart of your self care. When it comes to your health and well being, we are not the experts, you are.
