Meet Sharadha Bain - Edinburgh-based healer, counsellor and psychotherapist
For more than 20 years, I have been helping people with a combination of healing modalities I greatly love and respect. Time and again, I have found that these healing arts ease physical pain and mental/emotional suffering, and enable people to thrive, physically and emotionally.
I care deeply about human beings and their efforts to be happy. Facilitating their journey of transformation is what my life is all about.
Healing in the modern world encompasses many dozens of modalities. I began my studies with simple and gentle hands-on techniques that could be learnt in a few weekends. I went on to others which are much more complex and profound, requiring many, many years of dedicated study.
Here are the key trainings I have completed:

My spiritual understanding has been cultivated by my studies of the world's great faiths - Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Sufism, Christianity and the Kabbalah. I have been immersed in spirituality since childhood and have spent many hours in meditative practice.
These spiritual approaches have opened my perception and understanding of deeper levels of reality. I have learned how we can work with these deeper levels to create healing and wholeness, growth and a deepening of wisdom.
I have discovered that we are multi-dimensional beings with great potential and beauty. We are each unique expressions of the Infinite. Our consciousness is immense, but we are here to live and love, work and play within the dimensions of time and space.
Early negative experiences in childhood and in adulthood, as well as social and cultural conditioning, place false limitations on our capacity for love, joy and creativity. They create needless suffering that can weigh down our heart, mind and body for very long periods of time - sometimes, sadly, even our whole life.
However, drawing on the wisdom and knowledge of our spiritual traditions, healing can facilitate the easing of needless suffering, and the blossoming of confidence, creativity and the capacity for happiness.
How to find me
My healing sessions take place in a quiet, private and comfortable room in the south side of Edinburgh. Here is a map to help you find me more easily.
As I am located in The Grange, between Marchmont, Bruntsfield and Morningside, it's very convenient for travel by bus and train. There are bus stops all around the area, and the number 5 bus stops right outside.
If you are coming by train, you can either take the number 5 bus from Waverley station; or you might prefer to stroll through The Meadows and up Marchmont Road to reach me. From Haymarket station, it's a slightly shorter walk, though you will be walking through lively areas such as Lothian Road and Tollcross before you reach the beautiful greens of Bruntsfield Links.
If you would be arriving by car, you will find plenty of on-street paid parking as this is a very quiet area.
There are several delightful cafes just at the end of the road if you arrive early and want a bite to eat or a hot drink to refresh yourself.
