Personal History (abridged)
Probably the most extensively experienced and qualified clinician in the UK, with a career path of a positive proactive personal quest and intuitive journey of self-learning and discovery. A competing gymnast in her teens, she developed a chronically painful scoliosis & kyphosis and was diagnosed with osteochondritis and told her spine would always be stiff and painful. In her twenties she contracted a rare virus and developed post-viral syndrome and chronic fatigue. Despite her constraints she took up downhill skiing, and experienced several injuries sustaining joint dislocations, ACL rupture, disc damage and five fractures of major bones. After many years deep inner work in movement and psychology her chronic pain was resolved, she had more flexibility in her spine than ever before, her chronic fatigue was well managed, and so the story continues . .
