Laura Smith, Holistic Therapist, Reiki Master Teacher, Life Coach
Think how much healthier and happier you would be if your mind, body, and soul were in tune, relaxed, and soothed and if you felt confident that your life and career were on track.
Some feel they cannot pause for me-time in their busy schedules. However, when you are uplifted, calm, and in control, you may find you’re even more productive in your daily life freeing up even more time for the things you love. My therapies will lift you up and relax your mind body and soul. Treatments are based in my home studio in Hamilton.
I also passionately teach all levels of traditional Usui Reiki from Level 1 the beginning to Reiki Masters. My expertise is on hand to offer you the best of care, knowledge and advice across a range of courses. My approach is simple yet effective combining structured, and hands-on teaching and taught in a straightforward manner so you can use Reiki for personal or professional use.

Laura is a highly skilled Holistic Therapist, Reiki Master Teacher, and Life Coach with a wide range of experience expanding over fourteen years of working in luxury international Spa properties. Her devotion and dedication to client care, kind, approachable nature and strong healing hands make her the sought after therapist she is today.
Laura began her career qualifying as a Beauty Therapist back in 2004. Her first professional role started at the prestigious five star Gleneagles Hotel Golf Resort & Spa in Scotland. There she received in-house training in specialised massage techniques and participated in advanced holistic treatments from a well-known spa product brand. Although still interested in beauty, Laura embarked on a holistic journey taking a personal interest in crystals, chakras, meditation and later Reiki.
The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Bahrain and The Elysium Hotel in Paphos are amongst some of the top spas internationally Laura has worked in. Laura has recently returned back home to Lanarkshire after living in London. There she was employed as a Beauty Lecturer at South Thames College and worked self-employed for various five-star spas as well as a city clinic. She continues to practise and teach Reiki for The IIHTVH in the surrounding South Lanarkshire areas.
Laura is based in Hamilton for one-to-one sessions for Reiki while Life Coaching can be in-person or over the phone. Corporate visits for Reiki, Reiki Training Courses and all Holistic Therapies can be arranged upon request.

I teach for the IIHTVH which is founded by Anna Mandala. I met Anna in Cyprus whilst working at The Elysium Hotel. Anna became my spiritual mentor and although I had already been trained up to Reiki Level 3 by Lorna Maclean in Glasgow, I was drawn to complete my spiritual studies with Anna. I spent three days with Anna in the mountains learning the skills to become a Reiki Master Teacher. It was a life-changing emotional course that led me to explore deeper down the spiritual path of Reiki. This inspired me to raise awareness and encourage others to evolve and begin a new self-healing journey.
Since then Reiki has become a way of life for me which I use every day to calm and balance the mind and I just simply could not imagine my life without this peaceful healing energy. Giving myself reiki every morning when I wake up and every evening before going to bed instils a moment of calm and clarity whereby I would normally experience high levels of stress or in the past anxiety.
In a world of stress and endless to-do lists, we would all greatly benefit from having this energy within our lives. As it accelerates the bodies own healing ability and boosts the immune system, it is a great tool to be used in the prevention of physical sickness.
Reiki isn’t just a skill that can be picked up. It is a journey which expands your higher consciousness taking you to a place of inner peace. Those who embark on this journey often experience remarkable positive life changes. The energy gained from Reiki stays with you for life allowing you to tap into the healing source whenever it is required. Particularly beneficial to add as a skill for an already qualified spa therapist or anybody who works within a caring profession such as nursing or counselling. There are no contraindications to reiki and even cancer patients are safe to experience this treatment which can help to reduce pain and calm the mind.
Through Anna, I was also introduced to The Law of Attraction and The Secret. This new information helped me to view the world with fresh eyes and opened up new opportunities for me. Having experienced some recent personal trauma plus the normal up and downs of daily life this new knowledge enabled me to create a better life for myself drawing on the basis of positive thinking and NLP – neuro linguistic processing. Completing Dr Joe Vitales Miracles Coaching course in 2014 opened my eyes to the world of coaching. Currently I am working towards gaining a qualification in Life Coaching with The Coaching Academy based in London.
My vision is to guide and empower other women to create the life they desire, encouraging them to shine and be the best they believe they can be. Life coaching is not about giving advice or helping others make a decision. It is different from counselling which involves looking back into the past.
The purpose of coaching is to inspire and motivate others to reach their goal by planning a journey taking action steps towards the future to create the life they really desire. It is beneficial for anybody who is looking to make some life changes but not sure where to start, those who require extra help in finding their true purpose in life, anybody who is stuck in a rut and willing to work on figuring out a solution with the help and support of a life coach.
