Personal History (abridged)
Becoming the most extensively experienced and qualified clinician in the UK, is a journey of a positive proactive quest. An intuitive journey of self-learning and discovery. A competing gymnast & equestrian in her teens, she developed a chronically painful scoliosis & kyphosis , was diagnosed with osteochondritis and told her spine would always be stiff and painful. In her twenties she contracted a rare virus and developed debilitating post-viral syndrome and chronic fatigue. Despite her constraints she took up downhill skiing, and repeatedly rehabilitated and recovered after experiencing injuries. These included, repeated bilateral shoulder joint dislocation, ACL rupture, lumbar disc and nerve damage and five fractures of major bones. To address her constraints she studied deep inner work in meditation, movement, psychology and neuroscience. She applied this for herself with the outcome that her chronic pain resolved, she developed more flexibility in her spine, her chronic fatigue became was well managed, and she created four bodies of work to help others.
