My earliest life experiences were marked by loss, betrayal, separation and fear. Back then there was no recognition of what we now call perinatal trauma and developmental trauma. The belief was that I was lucky because I had survived and been too young to remember. Now we know that our body does remember.

When many years later my health got compromised to an extent which I could no longer ignore, I had to start looking at why my body was breaking down. Only then did I begin to recognise the true impact of what I had experienced.

It’s not been an easy journey for me, but I never stopped believing that recovery from ME/CFS and trauma was possible. This belief did get me there in the end.

Along the way I explored every single recovery approach out there; some held some answers, but none was as comprehensive as The Chrysalis Effect, and few acknowledged the role of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in chronic exhaustive conditions.

I have experienced my version of what you are currently struggling with and feel now passionate about helping you find your freedom from all this pain and suffering.

My passion lies in working with the Emotional Healing aspect of recovery – the psycho-emotional and neurological underpinning of chronic pain and fatigue.

As Specialist Practitioner with The Chrysalis Effect and Therapeutic Coach, I work in an integrative way that is trauma-sensitive, polyvagal-informed, body-based, HSP-and Introvert-friendly.

I am here to support you in making these important connections between the hurts of your past and your current health challenges so you can begin addressing the root causes of your symptoms.

I discovered that the body and nervous system can be our greatest ally in recovery and I would feel privileged to introduce you to its innate capacity to heal itself.

I am the Recovery Specialist for you, if you long to find true freedom from old emotional patterns and discover the authentic you that’s been hidden under trauma and dysregulation.

I will gently guide you through The Chrysalis Effect Recovery Programme and tailor it in a way that helps you to reach the next level of recovery. Along the way I may bring in therapeutic body-based approaches and teach nervous system regulating practices to help you heal deeper emotional causes of your ill-health.
