How I Can Help You
I offer 2 types of well-being programmes:
- Support Programmes: My primary focus is on helping people to gain insight which will help them to make long-term changes in their life; to understand the nature of mind and emotions. I do this through one-to-one, talking-based consultations in which we explore the deeper issues and patterns which contribute to chronic illness.
- Natural Health Programmes: In addition, I also provide a limited number of natural therapy consultations to help relieve pain and anxiety-related symptoms. These are exclusively available for people who have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue or illness, and stress-related conditions.
My specialist area is in helping you to create changes which will improve your personal experience and well-being through developing self-insight and wisdom. This involves exploring the beliefs, situations, circumstances and habits which are showing up in your life. If you are interested in working with me, please note that it is a pre-requisite for you to have an active interest in exploring your experience, a deep desire to improve your life, and a readiness for creating change in your life.
Each of the well-being programmes are very much based on your individual circumstances and life experiences, rather than following a prescriptive, 'one size fits all', model of health.
I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation for people who have chronic fatigue conditions, long-term health concerns, or ongoing problems with their emotional health.
A Discovery Call can help you decide whether coaching is something you might find helpful, or whether a different route might be more suited to your circumstances at the moment.
If you would like to book in, then please contact me and let me know when you are available, so that we can arrange your appointment.
*Please note that Discovery Calls are only available by phone
*A programme of 12 consultations is recommended if you have chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia or long term stress-related conditions.
*There is a minimum requirement to sign up for a minimum 6 consultation programme if you have any type of chronic health condition.

Natural Therapies and the Mind-Body Connection
The norm in our society is to treat mind and body as different types of substances. This duality is seen in the approaches which are used in mainstream health, where medical departments and training for health professionals are divided according to specific parts or functions of the mind or body.
Unfortunately this tendency towards a reductionist view can lead to a lack of connection with the actual experience of the person who is feeling ill. In reality human nature is highly complex, and there is no clearly defined division between mind and body. Indeed, the very nature of mind is subject to cultural interpretation and a universally agreed criteria for the nature of mind, or its treatment, does not exist.
Your health is influenced by the environment, culture, beliefs and people which you encounter everyday, and by the experiences which you have had throughout your life. So, if you have a condition where you have experienced intense emotional distress and you only focus on certain aspects of your mind, you are omitting to account for the somatic, or physical, nature of your experience and emotions.
In Eastern traditions, the nature of being human is perceived differently, and there is no mind-body division as it is perceived in Western societies. So health is approached from a holistic viewpoint where it is impacted by environment, relationships, diet, emotions and state of mind. Emotional health is recognised as being neither solely mental or physical in nature, but inextricably linked with our life experiences.
Many natural health therapies are based upon this holistic view, where releasing emotion from the body is an integral part of recovery from illness. This can be facilitated through a variety of natural health therapies. Many different therapeutic techniques can be greatly beneficial, even if they are based upon different approaches to mind, body or energy. So, when you are choosing to participate in a therapy or treatment, it is important that it aligns with your own values and beliefs, that it supports you in improving your health, and that you use it within a holistic approach to your recovery.
