365 Bottle

When I moved to Scotland one of the first adventures, I embarked upon was climbing Ben Nevis. On the journey I couldn’t believe the amount of rubbish, especially plastic water bottles. Myself and my friends decided to pick them all up on our way back down and promised ourselves during the process that we would do something about this issue. From that day we’ve worked tirelessly creating 365 bottle, a sustainable and reusable water bottle made from 100% recycled materials. From the top of the world to the bottom of the ocean, lets help guard our planet together.

Caring Counselling

I help people who are experiencing a time of grief and sadness, whether through bereavement or any other kind of life loss, find their way through the confusion and the sadness which they may be feeling. I do this by gently listening and guiding them through their ‘grief journey’, providing them with support, kindness, empathy and understanding.

Grief is a journey that is as individual as the person experiencing it, not one person grieves in the same way as another, which means that every person that comes to me for help receives an individual experience that will meet their personal need.

We help small (and big) business owners get their messages out there through video and websites.

I’ve grown up with code, being a millennial and all that, but that doesn’t mean to say I don’t understand business. In fact, I started my own business aged 14 supplying video editing services to YouTube gamers.

With the world turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic, I launched the marketing agency at the start of 2021. Since then, I have grown the team and we have helped business owners who are either launching their new idea, have a website that needs a refresh or want to create video content to achieve better results on social media.
