About our co-founder Claudia Goncalves

In October 2003 Claudia co-founded the Planetary Healing Centre in Portobello and the Edinburgh Shamanic Centre in Balerno with her husband Mark Halliday. These are two independent organisations offering services for the community.


In 2005 she co-founded Youth Vision with Sara Beauregard. Youth Vision is a "Rites of Passage" project working with young people age 14 to 18yrs going through the transitional process from childhood to adulthood. Youth Vision is now an independent charity and Claudia is a director and chairperson of Youth Vision which operates in Balerno working with various High Schools in Edinburgh.

At the heart of Claudia's charitable work is the Holistic Health Project which she envisioned and started in Oct 2006 under the Planetary Healing Centre. This is a volunteer based project counting with over 35 volunteers today, it offers a range of holistic therapies and shamanic work by suggested donation or free for people who find themselves in an economically disadvantaged position. Claudia is the Holistic Health Project visionary and manager.


Cláudia works from a strong base of compassion, unconditional love, authenticity and sincerity. She is committed to actively create positive change where it is needed and to the empowerment of families, individuals, women, children, young people and community who seek vision and growth in their journey.
