“I have been given a new approach to life and I have immense gratitude. I no longer feel overwhelmed with life decisions and can approach situations with a new found compassion for myself. Marie has carefully and gradually allowed me to see different perspectives. Over the year, Marie helped me wander through traumatic/painful childhood experiences, the challenges of moving to a new city and bullying at work. She responds with a kind calmness, a wealth of professional knowledge and natural non judgemental understanding. I have had a lot of therapists and the most important aspect of Marie’s work is that she genuinely cares.”

“Nancy” (Counselling client)

“Marie delivered a beautiful and thoughtful bespoke session for our creative audience at the Freelancer Festival. She focused on mindfulness for creativity and how to find and honour your creative self. The event went down a treat and we’re looking forward to working with True Connecting again in the future!”

Kate Southern (Director of the Gorgie Creative Network)

“I attended the ‘How to cope with anxiety’ workshop. This workshop is incredibly informative as not only do you learn about how to cope with anxiety but you also feel supported and are able to share your thoughts with others. One of my favourite parts was being able to practice mindfulness allowing you leave feeling relaxed. I’d highly recommend this workshop for anyone who has struggled, or is struggling with, anxiety.”

Zoe (Anxiety workshop participant)

“I didn’t know what to do and where to turn. You have really helped me understand myself, the person I am and how I want to be.”

“Pete” (Counselling client)

“Marie was wonderful to work with! She helped us with our 10 year vow renewal in Edinburgh in October of 2018. She included a hand fasting ceremony and also helped us take some photos on the day of our renewal. I would highly recommend Marie and True Connection!”

Kimberly (Bride)

“You have such a lovely, calm prescience. I feel like can tell you anything and you wouldn’t judge me.”

“Georgina” (Counselling client)

“I very much enjoyed Marie’s 6 week mindfulness course. Well delivered content and great communication 

Charlotte (Mindfulness course participant)

“Marie performed our wedding ceremony and it was just perfect. cannot thank Marie enough. nothing was to much trouble and she was always ready to answer any questions we had. we planned the wedding through email and a phone call due to distance. we also had a sand ceremony so our children could be part of our day. highly recommended.”

Emma Sharp (Bride)

“Our sessions have really helped me”

“Joyce” (Counselling client)

“Thank you for your time Marie, It is clear you know a lot about mindfulness and care a lot about teaching it. I will definitely use these techniques again.”

“Sarah” (Mindfulness course attendee)

“I am really glad I came along and it taught me some useful strategies to use at home.”

Amelia (Mindfulness course attendee)

“From first meeting to the ceremony itself, Marie was great. She helped us to shape our own ceremony to suit us, not trying to force us to follow a pre-planned structure, but suggesting what might help and what might be problematic. She added some beautiful words to the ceremony and we had a full copy of what would be happening well before the day. Her approach is relaxed, warm and non-judgemental, always listening to what our ideas were and taking them on board, while offering ideas too. The day itself went perfectly, with so many of our guests commenting on how lovely the ceremony was, not the same as other weddings they had been to at all, but that it really suited us. This was exactly what we had aimed for, and with Marie’s help we achieved it.”

“I would not hesitate to recommend Marie, she has helped us to achieve exactly the wedding ceremony that we wanted-Hindu/Christian/Scottish/Indian! We weren’t sure how it would work at the beginning, but Marie helped us to work it out. Thank you Marie.”

Lorna Divecha (Bride)

“Thank you for Duncan and Rachel’s lovely wedding service. My husband and I could not have been more delighted. It was all perfect. You made the day very special.”

Varrie Beaton (Mother of Bride)

“Thanks again for the beautiful ceremony you performed for us. We had such an amazing day and were so pleased that we chose you to be a part of it.”

Laura and Caitlin (Bride & Bride)

Just to say thank you so much for taking our ceremony. It was beautiful and you made us feel so at home and natural. The words were just right and we so enjoyed having a very meaningful ceremony.
