BoatClinic locations in:

  • Edinburgh
  • Glasgow
  • Falkirk
  • New high graphics site coming soon.  this site has more detail and information. Our new .com site when launched is a more visual summary site.

If you are looking for professional expertise that combines real dedication to professional and therapeutic development, with real qualification and accreditation, then look no further!

We have City Centre bases in Edinburgh, Falkirk and Glasgow and we are considering expanding into other cities shortly.

We adhere to appropriate NOS National Occupational standards for the therapies that we provide, and both staff members are accredited to nationally recognised standards.

There is little in life that professional therapy and meaningful personal development will not either resolve or assist.


We have two fully qualified therapists on staff, and a network of trusted colleagues around the UK we refer to. We are holistic psychologists, psychoanalysts, life coaches and complementary therapists with our main bases in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Denise is a CCC registered counsellor, Stuart is a NCP and NACHP registered psychotherapist and  counsellor with a MSc Psychology.

We adhere to appropriate National Occupational Standards, carry professional insurance and support  regulation of therapists. We support the coming voluntary regulation of psychotherapy and counselling. Stuart is a CNHC registered hypnotherapist (voluntary regulation of hypnotherapy).

We are complementary health practitioners, not alternative health practitioners. This means that we work WITH the medical profession. If you have an illness or injury, or if you are going to embark on a new diet, fitness plan or if you have any uninvestigated symptoms, you must consult your medical doctor.  We do not use western medical models, and we do not "treat" people. We work with clients to assist them in attaining their goals.

Our Philosophy of practice:  HERE

Integrative and Solution focused therapy is results and outcome based, but is often guided by theory and thinking from subjects including Eastern Medicine, Philosophy, Theology, Social Policy, Health Education and Psychology. Stuart and Denise have completed a range of training courses and qualification courses in these topics and are committed to further University study of these topics in order to inform and develop professional practice. Stuart employs spontaneous style Qi Gong, Chi breathing, Zen Reiki, meditation, visualisation and mindfulness techniques from Buddhism in his practice. He also employs Taoist philosophy, Buddhist philosophy, interfaith philosophy and japanese complementary holistic styles in assisting his clients. Both therapists are Reiki attuned in various styles and use Reiki healing and philosophy where appropriate.

Alphabetically listed topic list HERE 

Are you suffering from?

- Poorly controlled Stress or Anger

- Problems with addictions including smoking, drugs and gambling

- Lack of confidence or poor self esteem / self image

- Sleeplessness or agitation

- Lack of positive thinking for the future

- Lack of focus, motivation or structure

Full list of issues HERE

Would you like to?

- Combine your emotional and material needs
- Stop sabotaging yourself
- Live the life you deserve, rather than just "surviving"
- Reconcile any spiritual or religious issues

- Throw off domination by others in the past or present

With the combination of lifestyle coaching and professional therapy, your well being and personal development can be addressed from a far deeper level. This permits change that is not just symptomatic, but really lasts because underlying emotional, psychological and spiritual factors are address or balanced.

Usually Life Coaching, Hypnotherapy, Psychological therapy, NLP and related therapies suffer from the fact that the goal setting they depend on do not include enough deeper meaning. With the inclusion of the holistic side this is remedied. This avoids the situation of wonderful financial success, without happiness! No such problem with our assistance!
