Anam Cara is a registered Scottish charity supporting woman whose aim is to improve their emotional well-being.


Ancient Celtic tradition states your Anam Cara is a spiritual aura that helps you to see the beauty within yourself. This encourages you to see the best in not only yourself but, also in others.


Here at Anam cara we believe that; in order to find true happiness, you need to look no further than within yourself.



Anam Cara was developed by women who recognised a gap in services to provide a lived experience approach to supporting women's emotional well- being. 


Through the team sharing real life experiences they can safely explore subjects like vulnerability, authenticity and low self- worth, and help develop skills and techniques that are true “game changers.” All Anam Cara Team have lived experience and our only requirement prior to training is a passion to make a difference, an honesty, and an ability to share and own their stories and a commitment to supporting women who attend our workshops. 

This unique form of delivery creates a compassionate, non- judgmental space for women to develop skills without fear of judgement and are held in safe local environments in and around the Lothian’s.
