I have supported people in improving their health and well-being for over 30 years now. As a registered nurse, I have worked in acute hospital care, later providing clinics in chronic disease management and health promotion. I began to understand the importance of the relationship between stress, trauma and chronic illness during my own personal recovery from chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.
During this time, I became highly aware of the gap between intellectual knowledge, and the subjective experience of being ill. I realised that to improve my health permanently, I needed to use a more holistic approach; one which includes a deeper understanding of the subjective nature of illness.
Since regaining my health, I have continued to develop my interest and qualifications in mind-body health and natural therapies. The areas I have focused on whilst studying for my degrees are important in the recovery of chronic illness, and include understanding the mind-body connection, approaches to trauma and mental health, plus how the nature of our thoughts, emotions and beliefs can impact our well-being.
In my coaching sessions I primarily focus on supporting people in improving their emotional health and moving beyond stress-related issues. I found that my own recovery changed my life for the better, and it is this journey of personal or spiritual transformation which I find important.
So, I usually work with people who actively want to improve their experience, who feel ready to make positive changes in their life, and who are committed to long term improvement.
Because I also have an interest in Eastern philosophy, mindfulness, natural therapies and spirituality, I also support people who are highly intuitive or empathic, or who have a soul-centred approach to life.
