Workshops on “the Science of Attraction & Relationships”:
“I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Mairi’s workshops. The workshops are a fun way to think about what is a bit of a foggy area for some folks. It would be wrong to say that the workshops give you all the answers, but they do get you asking the right questions, both of yourself and others around you. I have to credit my time in the workshops with helping me find the happy and stable relationship I’m now in and in turn making life a lot more content.”

“I was intrigued by the title of this course “Science of Attraction & Relationships” – it promised much – insight into why we choose who we do in relationships. I gave it a go and I wasn’t disappointed! Mairi talks in depth over the many aspects of human behaviour and attraction – and there is a lot of material! A lot of the information you will know and a lot you won’t but it is the way it is all put in context that is empowering. Fun and interesting – I’d encourage anyone even slightly curious to give it a go.”
“I went to Mairi’s workshop on ‘The science of attraction and relationships’ with a mixture of general intellectual curiosity and a need for ongoing personal reflection. I wasn’t disappointed in either objective. Mairi led the group with great energy, balance, objectivity, humour, and real insight from her research. I was impressed with the way she laid out a wide body of knowledge in such a way that allowed the small group to pick up specifics and explore some topics in more detail. Altogether a very comfortable, educational, and insightful day. I would happily recommend.”
“Coming from a therapeutic background, I found the evolutionary biology approach really fascinating as it allowed me to consider my relationships with the opposite sex from a completely different perspective. The range of topics in the workshop means there is something for everyone. It would be difficult to go through the day without learning something new and interesting about human beings, what attracts us and why. The workshop was not only informative on a personal level but it also looked at relationships in the wider global context so it would be useful to anyone looking for insight in their own relationships or for people working with couples in a professional role. I’ve enjoyed sharing the things I’ve learned with friends and family.”
“I found the workshops to be excellent. There was a light bulb moment for me as I realised I am instinctively attracted to avoidantly attached people, and I now know how to steer clear of them. I think people who seem to repeat similar relational patterns ending up with heartache would benefit greatly from the personality and attachment workshops.”

“I very much enjoyed the Science of Attraction & Relationships sessions, it was good to recognise some of the traits which are in potential partners It has also made me re evaluate the signals i am sending to others, and what i can expect to find in a partner. I would recommend this group of lectures to anyone who would like to understand more about the workings of attraction, and to recognise patterns which signify behavìours that are not what we are looking for.”

Workshops for Relationship Counsellors & Sex Therapists:
“Attraction is an integral part of relationships and an understanding of its purpose and place in courtship and maintaining relationships is important. This CPD day is extremely relevant to the work of couple counsellors. The day is both informative and illuminating how attraction works in everyday relationships both from its biological and evolutionary base through to its application in today’s relationships. Counsellors at Relationships Scotland attending this cpd found the workshop really interesting, informative and useful for their practice.
I would recommend it to counsellors and couple counsellors alike as it will enhance and inform knowledge and understanding.”
Anne Chilton, Head of Professional Practice (Counselling), Relationships Scotland, 18 York Place, Edinburgh.
“I’d thoroughly recommend a one-to-one consultation with Mairi to help understand issues around your relationships. I found our conversation really fascinating as well as useful, and it’s proving invaluable to me going forwards.”
