Janey Archer

Holistic and Hypnotherapist

Want to know more about me? Here’s my life in a nutshell.

1976 was a significant year for me and a year that impacts many of my life decisions. It was the year of sadness when I lost my brother to a brain tumor and my parents were divorced, but also a year of happiness when I met my husband who I’ve been with for over 40 years. 1981 was another significant year for me as I gave birth to our first child and started the next chapter of our lives in Scotland. In our new home, we discovered the truly amazing nature of Dolphins. Alongside a local charity ‘The Friends of the Moray Firth Dolphins’ we decided to open a visitor center where the public could learn more about these charismatic animals. In 1997 we opened the Moray Firth Wildlife Centre which dominated our lives for the next 10 years. We eventually passed this onto Whale and Dolphin Conservation, and the center is still running to this day.

In 2010 I went back to college to retrain as a Holistic Therapist. I already had my Reiki II qualification and wanted to gain extra experience working with the public, with the eventual goal of setting up my own business. In 2011 Dragonfly Therapies was born. We started in Montrose and since then have moved to Newtonhill before finally settling in Stonehaven. My passion and love for my business have given me the motivation to grow my business and The Old Court Buildings are the perfect place to do this. I truly feel so lucky finding something that I love doing and I am looking forward to all the lovely new clients and students I am going to meet.

My Approach

My approach is treat each individual in a holistic way to promote balance of mind, body and spirit.

I provide a warm and informal environment where you can feel safe and comfortable during your session.

Treatments can be blended in a unique fusion to create a tailored experience to enhance the overall effect of your session.

My Process

Before any treatment programme is put in place I will take time to carryout a consultation to find out what your needs are and if there is anything that may effect what methods are used.

There are many factors which define what options will be suggested as a way forward and this includes your own personal preference which is why spending time at the start is so vital.
