About Me

Me is Maureen McLay and I am the Director of Afterwards Alternative Therapies.

I work from a holistic perspective and I am passionate about using alternative therapies in healing the mind, body and soul, ensuring that the energy of each system is balanced and working in partnership with the others. I am a trained psychotherapist, Spiritual counsellor and Reiki Practitioner. I have worked with individuals, public, private and charitable sectors teaching tools on how to protect and enhance energy levels and overall well-being.

Some less factual things about me.  Many of my clients have fed back that I have a peculiar ability to know exactly what’s going on for them; that I say just the right thing or ask just the right questions; that when they leave a session they are filled with positive energy and that I create a safe space for them to say what they think and feel. 

To find out more about all of these therapies, courses and projects please take a look around our website which can be found on the following link www.afterwards.org.uk

  • Diploma in Applied Social Sciences – Open University (1996)
