If you are reading this page you have probably already made the decision to take back control of your health after years of suffering and illness.
You may have tried lots of different treatments and therapies, but have not yet discovered an approach that works for you. Reading about these conditions is terrifying. You may read that there is no cure, that you have to accept that you may be like this forever.
I want you to know that with the right support and guidance, it is absolutely possible to recover from Chronic Fatigue, ME and Fibromyalgia. I work with successful professional women, entrepreneurs, business owners and women who feel that they deserve much more from their lives.
My passion is supporting clients as they move from despair and fear that they will never get well, to hope and enthusiasm for the future. I help them to become informed and empowered about how their lifestyle affects their health and what they can do to transform their health and wellbeing.
Having worked as a Reflexologist for over 25 years, I have seen hundreds of clients who have struggled to overcome their long standing health problems. This is because often conventional medicine focuses just on the symptoms, instead of looking at the root cause of the illness. They may also have spent time visiting different practitioners, without any clear recovery plan, and with limited success.
Fortunately, a revolutionary new approach to these conditions has been pioneered by The Chrysalis Effect (www.thechrysaliseffect.co.uk) and is now becoming recognised by the medical profession as an effective long-term treatment for Chronic Fatigue, ME and Fibromyalgia.
This programme recognises that mind, body, environment, lifestyle, dietary factors, relationships and the pre-disposition and susceptibility of a person are all part of the picture.
Nothing happens in isolation, everything is interrelated. An effective treatment programme therefore needs to address all these different elements.
I combine my knowledge and experience from my degree in Psychology, over 25 years’ experience as a therapist, with my training as a Wellbeing coach and Recovery Specialist with the Chrysalis Effect.
As founder and director of one of the largest natural health clinics in the north of England I have a unique understanding of a wide range of therapies, and how these are best suited to supporting you on your health journey.
Together with my team of professional and caring therapists we will support you, so that you no longer feel isolated and instead you will feel believed, nurtured and valued.
I graduated with a BA(Hons) in Psychology from Manchester University, working in the corporate world for several years, before discovering the magic of Reflexology.
After a car accident my husband was left with severe back pain. Over the next 5 years he had physiotherapy, saw 5 orthopaedic consultants, and had pain killing injections – none of which touched his pain. I read about reflexology from a book, and trying these new techniques on my husband resulted in his pain disappearing overnight! We were totally amazed by this discovery which led me to change the course of my life and career.
I trained as a Clinical Reflexologist and gave up my corporate career to dedicate myself to helping others to benefit from this amazing therapy.
In 2005 I opened Cheshire Natural Health, fulfilling my dream to create a centre of excellence where clients could benefit from a range of professional natural treatments all under one roof.
Since then, we have grown from just 5 therapists, to become the largest Natural Health clinic in the north-west, and have treated almost 20,000 clients over this time. We now have 20 therapists under one roof, offering a range of 30 specialist treatments.
Over the last 26 years, I have learned that many long-standing health conditions respond best to a holistic approach, which looks at all aspects of a person’s health and well-being, and long-term good health depends upon all of these aspects being in balance.
In order to be able to fully help clients, I have completed intensive training with the Chrysalis Effect, which provides support for people with Chronic exhaustive conditions including Chronic Fatigue, ME and Fibromyalgia, using specialist coaching and mentoring tools to help clients return to good health.
I am a very practical, down to earth person, and bring my sense of positivity and empathy to every session. I am married with 2 grown up children and 2 cats. I love Yoga, and spending time walking in the beautiful Cheshire countryside.
I am an experienced Clinical Reflexologist, accredited well-being Coach and Specialist Recovery Practitioner for clients with ME and Chronic Fatigue using the highly effective Chrysalis Effect programme.
