Margaret J Forbes Qualified Complementary Therapist and Teacher/Trainer
Locality:
Long Business Description:

The therapies that I offer are:

Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and REIKI can help treat matters of the mind and body which perhaps hold you back from reaching your full potential in any aspects of your life’s journey.

Please visit my website HYPNOTAP for further information

So if you:

Are you looking to change your life?  

Are there issues and problems you would like to be rid of?

Anything at all that is holding you back from getting the most out of life?

Well, this could be as simple as changing your thought patterns or your beliefs about yourself  because  your reality is created by your “beliefs,” usually deep seated beliefs, sometimes ingrained from birth.  It is from these beliefs that we form our perceptions about the world and ourselves, and from these perceptions we develop our behaviours and how we deal with life.

So if you want to make the changes in your life so that you can do what you want to do and be all you want can be an aid to help you reach your full potential. These therapies are not magic wands but techniques to help you overcome any outdated thoughts and beliefs to enable you to live the life and achieve the goals you dream of.

I can also offer an alternative to the above in the form of a Reiki treatment. The Reiki system of healing is a safe, gentle, non-intrusive technique to treat physical or emotional problems or simply for relaxation.  It is a holistic system for balancing, healing and harmonising all aspects of the body and when the whole body is in balance it can heal itself.

Discover the real you and tap into your full potential now!

Murton Trust
Address: Arbroath Road, Forfar
DD8 2RZ
Locality:
Long Business Description:

Murton Trust manages a thriving nature reserve, visitor farm and tea room, on the outskirts of Forfar.  Murton provides a unique environment in which children, young people and adults can learn and develop skills for life. We wish to enrich people’s lives by using our site as an educational tool that has a positive impact on all ages.

 

As a Scottish charitable organisation with a dual purpose, situated on a former sand and gravel quarry, Murton Trust manages and enhances the natural heritage on the 100 acre site and currently utilises the landscape to provide opportunities for young people from Angus and Dundee (aged 14-19) who are disengaged from formal education, to gain meaningful vocational qualifications or work experience in hospitality and land based skills.
Murton Trust is a Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) accredited vocational training centre, our education programmes make significant differences to the futures of challenged young people.  We support those currently at school and those who have left school with no positive destination who are at risk of future social and employment exclusion, as a consequence of little or no school achievements.
We also operate Murton Tots Outdoor Playgroup throughout term time, working with pre-school children in an outdoor setting introducing them to the benefits of playing outdoors and experiencing nature at an early age.
Since opening 11 years ago, the nature reserve has become a hidden gem, teaming with wildlife including otters. The 80 acre nature reserve flourishes with diverse habitats; lochs, wetlands, woods, wild flower meadows, and nesting sites for sand martins. An abundant array of wetland and wading birds including Little Ringed Plovers a local biodiversity priority species are thriving. The management and design of the site mean paths and seating afford views, and provide access to nature without encroaching nesting sites or damaging habitats. The visitor farm and tea room have grown in popularity and are firmly established as a tourist destination, featuring in the list of top 20 places to visit in Angus.  Murton recognises the importance of tourism to its future sustainability and has become a key player in the Angus Tourism Cooperative established across the county by tourist attractions, hospitality businesses and accommodation providers.
