Sylvia Smith – Reflexology
Sylvia Smith of Shifting Stones studied a course in Reflexology with the School of Natural Health Sciences, gaining a Grade A pass with Distinction, and is currently studying the Advanced Reflexology course with the same institution. When asked how she feels about practicing reflexology, she said “each treatment is different, I never know what I’m going to find when I start treating a client’s feet, even those who I have treated before. The human body is very complex and many things can knock it off balance, so I find it fascinating to find these imbalances just by massaging the feet! The course itself was pretty intense, and I had a number of case studies to complete before I was awarded my diploma, although I actually did more case study treatments than prescribed by the course because I wanted to have as much exposure as possible prior to adding the treatment to my list of therapies on offer.”.
Janet Mowat – Counsellor / Psychotherapist / Supervisor
My journey into counselling started when I was a child. I have always been interested in people, psychology and how to support and care for each other. I studied for a BSc in Psychology with the Open University which I completed in 2004, then BA Hons in Social Work 2009, Post Graduate Diploma in Person Centered Counselling in 2014 and Certificate in Supervision in 2017.
I was a volunteer counsellor at Banff and Buchan Counselling Service, ACIS in Aberdeen, and GREC. I work with adults, elderly and teenagers. I have experience working with various mental health issues, learning disabilities, stress, anxiety and depression, relationship problems and bereavement. I have lots of personal life experiences which enables me to relate to many life difficulties and challenges.
