Keepwell Studio Two
Online and Midlands
I have spent the sixteen years working on my own health and have addressed all of the issues and barriers, contained in the eight elements wheel, that contributed to my health breakdown and have been fully recovered for many years. During the period of my illness I went from being bed-bound, to wheelchair bound and latterly used a mobility scooter to get around. Since recovery, I have resumed my love of walking, swimming, cycling, gardening I also make stained and fused glass in my spare time I live in Nottinghamshire with my husband Mike and our ever-growing menagerie.
When I became ill in 1998 I truly believed (like most sufferers) that my condition was purely physical and that all I had to do was find the right pill or potion to get well. I spent many years and thousands of pounds practitioner hopping to no avail. I took exception to any suggestion that there might be an emotional/psychological component.
Eventually when I had finally exhausted all avenues and reached rock bottom I saw a psychotherapist and it became apparent quite quickly that I had suffered many adverse childhood experiences (ACE) which had predisposed me to develop Chronic Fatigue.
Whilst counselling gave me understanding of my past it did not give me the tools and education that I needed in order to make the necessary changes required to fully recover, through this I learned that recovery needs a holistic approach.That was the beginning of my recovery journey which was largely self-directed as there was no clear recovery pathway (The Chrysalis Effect did not exist back then if it had it would have saved me from years of unnecessary illness.
I have since founded Keepwell Studio Two where I offer counselling/psychotherapy for a range of emotional, mental health issues and coaching for Chronic Exhaustive conditions ME, CFS and Fibromyalgia.
