Practitioners

Lyssa Clayton – HomeopathyIMG_1658 - Version 4

I offer Homeopathy consultations to women before, during and after pregnancy, to their partners, to babies from newborn and to children up to the age of 5.

My first involvement with the PPC was through my pregnancies and then by being a Trustee for a number of years. I am passionate about the health of women and their babies, children and families and excited at the scope for enhancing health and well-being at the deepest level through homeopathy.

I first started learning Homeopathy at evening classes and study groups over 29 years ago, and completed a 4 year course in 1998. I learn more every day through the people who come to see me, in my search for the best possible homeopathic remedy for each person, through study, reading, having professional supervision and by attending a wide range of seminars and CPD events in the UK and Europe.

I was involved in setting up the first Scottish Birth Teachers course which I also attended. I have been involved with pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, post-natal support and parenting since being first pregnant myself 28 years ago.

I am a Registered member of the Society of Homeopaths ( RSHom) I have a Diploma and Licentiateship in Homeopathy and an MA Honours degree in Medieval History. At present I am in the middle of completing a Supervision Mentoring course.

I have three children, two of whom are now adults. Homeopathy has been invaluable and essential for me in caring for their health and well-being from my pregnancies onwards.

Along with my constant explorations in homeopathy I spend as much time as I can singing, in various groups in Edinburgh and elsewhere with friends. Working with sound, voice, harmony and resonance fits so well with homeopathy. I am learning to grow food in containers – using homeopathy in my gardening efforts – and spend time with my feisty grandchildren and getting to as many good plays and films as I possibly can.

 

Keith Farvis – Craniosacral PractitionerKeithFarvis

I am the father of two grown-up children and have been in therapeutic practice for over 30 years, since 1985. I am a fully trained, registered and insured Craniosacral Therapist and I am fully qualified in working with mothers and babies. I have offered Craniosacral Therapy since 1994 and have been working with mothers and babies since 2000.

I joined the PPC in January 2010 because I strongly believe in the work that the Centre is doing. I also have a firm belief in the value of Craniosacral work for both mothers and babies, and would like to make it as available as possible as I think that every baby would benefit from having Craniosacral treatment after birth.

 

Michelle Roots – MassageMichelle Roots

I offer Swedish Massage and Indian Head Massage. Massage is a wholly natural treatment known to support deep relaxation, muscle easing, lymph drainage and healthier skin.

Having moved to Edinburgh in 1981 to attend Art College, I have been caring full time in a variety of ways and in a range of settings for 30 years.  I attended Nadine’s classes in 1990 and still feel the birth of my daughter is the most important, transforming experience of my life.  I am now very happy to be supporting other women experiencing pregnancy and parenthood.

I began formal massage in 2010, subsequently attaining Swedish Massage level 3, Indian Head Massage diploma, Certificate in Pregnancy Massage, Myofascial Release diploma and Reiki 2.  I am a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.

Touch is my favourite form of communication and I believe massage treatments can be deeply supportive and renewing on many levels.
