Sometimes we feel empowered by the magnificence of wilderness. Sometimes we feel tiny in a wilderness of the psyche. Always there is primal, powerful wildness within that guides us when we listen.

I believe that when people express their individuality, when we allow ourselves to be supported by nature, are mindful of the present moment, strip away all the physical, emotional and mental clutter we’ve buried ourselves under and choose to live a simpler life we’re nurturing our inner wild. And when we nurture our inner wild we feel centred, content, happy, fulfilled.

Inner Wild Therapy aims to nurture your inner wild so you stand proudly as the individual you are.

Born in Scotland, I’ve lived most of my life in London, Sydney and Auckland and am now enjoying the beauty of my ancestral home, the Outer Hebrides.


I’ve been a professional writer since I was 17 working as a journalist, advertising copywriter and creative director for 30+ years with agencies like Saatchi & Saatchi and Ogilvy as well as small design houses and direct clients. 


I’m an author and poet. My poems were published in various Australian literary magazines including Mattoid. My Tales for Dogs stories – written to be read to our canine companions – were originally published in 2004 as a series of board books by Rodale Press USA. Those eight tales and 11 more stories are now available as a self-published anthology, Stories for My Dog. You might like to read this interview about it with ‘Mother Nature Network’, now

My short story, ‘Tenderness‘ was included in the Bloody Scotland International Crime Fiction Writing Festival’s Worth the Wait ebook. I’ve written three novels: Forsaking, Dysfunction and The Wild Folk. Now writing The Bone Root. You can shelf my books on Goodreads.

I find knitting a beautiful, creative complement to writing. I love to design and make Inner Wild wilderness wear for dearhearts and after 12 years selling soulful garments on Etsy my clothing designs are now also available as knitting patterns so everyone can enjoy knitting their own version.

I was delighted to lead a hand knitting creativity and design workshop at Uist Wool, Grimsay in April 2015 for HND students – and a knitting workshop with Uist Wool during Grimsay Week on 5 November 2016.

It was an honour to be commissioned by Uist Wool to create a sweater pattern and finished sweater in late 2016. Inspired by its Calma Brave and Sian Storm wools I created three Uist Wool sweaters: the Seawrack Sweater, the Lovage Sweater and the Tarasgier Sweater and more recently the Hecla Wrap.

Some of my hand knits were bought from my Etsy store by the Outlander costume department and worn by the main cast and clansmen for Outlander Season One.

Healing Arts

I have a Certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling Skills from the Australian College of Applied Psychology.

I’m formally-trained as a Classical Homeopath with Certificates in both Classical Homeopathy and Classical Homeopathy Animal Health (Veterinary) from Bay of Plenty College of Homeopathy, New Zealand.

I’ve been a Reiki Master {Usui Shiki Ryoho} since 1992.

I occasionally lead Inner Wild Therapy workshops, my beta-test run being at the International Women’s Day event in South Uist, Scotland.
