  • My Story

    I grew up in a normal(ly dysfunctional) family the youngest of 2 (turned out my father had another son but I wasn't told that til in my teens). I lost my father suddenly a long illness when I was 19, on the first day of term of university. I didn't deal with it then at all, as I had no idea how to deal with it other than to carry on working. I drove myself into the ground really, on the outside being successful and confident but underneath feeling pretty lost. I pinned my hopes on science to save me. studying for various qualifications until I became a health researcher for a local university.

    After a series of health challenges in my 30’s, including depression and chronic fatigue, to which conventional medicine had no answer, I was encouraged to find my own and am now a passionate advocate of natural medicine. Today, I is a holistic therapist who specialises in chronic illness especially ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia.

    Initially studying Nutritional Medicine at Surrey University and then Advanced Clinical Massage (ACM) at the Jing Institute, Brighton I began to confidently treat musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.

    However, “something was missing… clients were coming to me with complex multi-factorial disease for which physical therapy was not enough. I recognised that there is an emotional component to disease which is often not addressed”. I decided to extend her knowledge with psychotherapy specifically studying cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy and trauma release.

    She is now a specialist using Hypnotherapy EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing and Emotional Freedom Technique (EEFT) which form a powerful armoury for treatment of bad habits, addictions, and chronic pain. In addition, I am a certified NLP Practitioner and Chrysalis Effect Wellbeing Coach specialising in Chronic Fatigue Syndromes such as ME and Fibromyalgia. I head a team of local practitioners who offer a package of treatment which ensures continuity of care and great results for supposedly 'incurable' conditions for which the only conventional answer is management, usually via surgery and pharmaceuticals.

    I have written articles for local health magazines, write a regular blog on health and wellbeing issues (healthwarrior), have co-authored an online health programme for Intelligent Health Solutions and contributed to a report to the UK's National health Service (NHS) ‘ME, CFS and Fibromyalgia Online Recovery Programme Supporting Recovery for All’ presented to The UK Government in February 2014 and a wellbeing seminar ‘Hidden Anxiety’ for the Chrysalis Effect. I am now concentrating on her writing my book on Everyday Trauma and have recently begun a PhD in medical/clinical hypnotherapy for trauma and chronic pain.
