Amongst a ‘Directory’ of Recovery Specialists – why choose me?
I believe I am the only CE Recovery Specialist based in Norfolk so if you’re local to me – I’d love to work with you in person.
I am not a CFS recoverer. My motivation to train with the Chrysalis Effect came from a desire to learn about how a person can recover from ME/CFS – a member of my family has suffered from ME for over 30 years and sadly still to this day doesn’t fully believe in recovery.
As a relative I have found the Programme inspirational, particularly the recoverers stories.
I have realised over the course of training with Chrysalis how close I have come to CFS myself; I developed IBS over 10 years ago following a skiing holiday, I was an overweight, stressed ‘A’ type SME business owner desperately juggling too many plates. I am a ‘borderline’ highly sensitive person. I even suffered with glandular fever as a teenager, I remember vividly; having no energy and waking up feeling sick every morning, worried I wouldn’t recover in time to sit my exams… So I feel there but by the grace of God…
I have also been on a transformative journey becoming disillusioned with the construction industry I began retraining as a Nutritional Therapist in 2016. By the time I qualified I knew I wanted to work with CFS clients and had by that time come across the Chrysalis Effect.
What do I offer?
A natural pragmatic problem solving approach, I will always have another suggestion or resource at my finger tips – I am continually experimenting with different way to improve all kinds of things in my own life, what I eat, what I do or don’t do before bed, yoga, qigong, meditation, singing, dance. I am continually seeking what makes me feel at my most energetic.
Having spent so many years not looking after myself properly – I now realise life purpose, self kindness, creating boundaries and me time are so vital – I am so grateful that I didn’t have to completely ‘crash’ to go on this journey. But I have learned so much and would love to share it with you.
I have a dream of supporting people to get off their sofa or out of bed and back into the workplace and enjoying a full life again. I guess my relative’s ‘wasted’ life has been a ‘trauma’ for me and it makes me really invested in your recovery.
The bottom line is – I can help you and I work as part of an amazing team of practitioners at CE and locally in Norfolk.
