Coronavirus and Flourish Services

Update: 23rd March 2021

As per Scottish Government guidelines, close contact services can resume from 26th April 2021. I look forward to my in-person sessions at my South Lanarkshire practice resuming on Thursday 29th April and at the Glasgow Osteopathic Centre on Saturday 1st May. Please do read the information below in regard to procedures when attending appointments.

If you are booking your first appointment online, you will have been sent a link in your booking confirmation email and in the appointment reminder email directing you to this page. Please complete the form above before attending your appointment. This form will be emailed to me and so please do not worry about printing it off, as there is no need to bring it with you.

Returning To In-Person Support

If you have not attended regular distance support or healing sessions with myself during lockdown, when returning to in-person appointments your first and second appointments will be 90 minutes each - this applies to all types of therapy and treatment (excluding shamanic healing). 60 minute appointments are only available for your first and second in-person appointments if you have received regular distance support with myself in the past few months. There are important therapeutic considerations and reasons for this - please do get in touch if you have any questions or queries.

30 minute in-person appointments will no longer be available however 30 minute sessions are still available for online holistic counsel and support.


There are some differences in attending at the centre and attending at my home practice in South Lanarkshire. The centre is its own business separate from Flourish, with Flourish renting a space within the business premises. This means that the requirements in attending at the centre may be different from the South Lanarkshire practice - please see below in the July 2020 update for full details. You will be required to bring some things with you - including a towel and a blanket - as everything used within the premises is disposable. The number of people present at the centre at any one time has been minimised as much as possible, however there are clients attending with an osteopath during Flourish appointment times and the number of people attending at the centre on any given day is greater due to this. Times are staggered to minimise the chance of more than one client being present in the reception area at any one time, but this is not impossible. For clients who prefer a more clinical environment, the centre is the best option to book.

At the South Lanarkshire practice, there will be myself to greet you at the door and there is no risk of contact with another person. There is a maximum of eight in-person appointments a week so there is no 'people traffic' at this location. Flourish's approach does not encourage a 'production line' of clients and this may be one of the reasons why you may be asked to add your name to a waiting list for an appointment as a new client or one who attends less regularly.

There is a greater length of time between appointments for cleaning and preparations and disposable paper covering is used on the treatment couch. This is the main disposable item used - occasionally there may be a need to use protective gloves but this is very rare. Flourish is committed to recycling and minimising environmental impact so as many materials and items are cleaned or recycled, or repurposed and reused as much as possible. All materials are laundered at a suitable temperature and the treatment room fully aired between appointments. There is nothing additional for you to bring to your appointment, you need only bring yourself.


Update: January 2021

The newest restrictions in Scotland means that in person sessions are unavailable until current restrictions are lifted. This is being reviewed by the Scottish Government at the end of January.

Online support and remote healing are the only options available for both one to one and group events. Land, home and space clearing will also be conducted remotely.


Update: Friday 11th September 2020

The newest restrictions issued from the Scottish Government affect residents in Glasgow City, East Renfrewshire, Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire.  Appointments will continue as normal at my practice at the Glasgow Osteopathic Centre, and the update that is relevant for appointments at my home based practice in East Kilbride is:

'Work and services carried out in private homes: Professionals who offer services from their own home can continue to carry out their work with appropriate safety measures in place.'

This means that the recent updates will not affect in person appointments at either location. Precautionary/safety measures will remain in place - please see the information below for more details.

Update: Wednesday 22nd July 2020

Following the latest guidance from the Scottish Government on close contact services, this update outlines how this will affect my services. I hope to make the changes as clear and as simple as possible so that you are fully aware of what to expect at your appointments.

In-person appointments will return to my home based practice from Thursday 30th July and from Saturday 1st August at my practice based at the Glasgow Osteopathic Centre. The information below applies only to these locations and not to appointments for my animal therapy practice at Herbal Vet Scotland. I will update on appointments there soon.

I detailed in a previous update that, since 17th March, I personally have only been taking trips for essentials, and this still continues. I am not in a vulnerable group but I made this decision, and the decision to stop all in-person appointments on this date, and this was around a week before the official lockdown date for businesses. This was to ensure any exposure
