Dr Patricia Worby, BSc. Msc. PhD, PGDip (Hypnotherapy), HPD is a practitioner of body-oriented psychotherapy which aims to release unprocessed emotion. My specialism is in chronic illness especially chronic fatigue and pain which I believe always have a trauma component at their core. This is the subject of my recent PhD thesis and book ‘The Scar that Won’t Heal’; Stress, Trauma and Emotion in Chronic Disease.
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 my knowledge with psychotherapy specifically studying cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy and trauma release.
I have recently developed a unique programme for the release of unprocessed emotions using a combination of Havening, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) which form a powerful armoury for treatment of anxiety, depression 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”.
