I’m incredibly passionate about kinesiology and have been receiving treatments for over 15 years now since finding it dramatically reduced the symptoms of my M.E./CFS.
I stumbled across it when I developed M.E. after a bout of glandular fever and was very ill for a number of years, unable to walk and using a wheelchair to get around. My Mum was having to wash me, feed me and assist with all manner of things that you would expect a woman in her 20s to be able to do by herself. I tried so many treatments both traditional (CBT/GET) and complementary but for me, kinesiology was the key for me unlocking my body and starting to heal. It also astounded me how much progress I made after just one treatment.
On recovery, I proceeded to ignore the wonderful benefits and fledgling knowledge that kinesiology had brought me and in a bid to make up for the lost years, moved to London to plunge myself into the world of advertising for the next few years. This created yo-yo effects on my health and energy levels and after losing my Father suddenly, I realised I could not continue living in this burn-out, without understanding how to better support my work/life balance and health needs.
I decided I had to learn more and so qualified as a Systematic Kinesiologist (foundation levels 1-6) in 2014 allowing me to support myself, family and friends. This sparked a passion inside of me and I subsequently completed my professional Diploma qualification with the School of Advanced Kinesiology and built a treatment clinic in Sherborne, Dorset. Recently I furthered my studies with a Certificate in Naturopathic Nutrition and Health and am delighted to offer individual nutrition and meal planning sessions either face to face or via phone/Skype so I can now work (inter)nationally.
I am truly excited (and possibly rather geeky!) about the incredible effects kinesiology can bring. I have learnt so much about my own body and how to strive for optimal health, learning to try to manage the work/life balance, to avoid food sensitivities which trigger my IBS and to really listen to what my body tells me – including allowing myself time to relax.
Kinesiology has helped me with a wide range of issues over the years: backache, headaches, mouth ulcers, recurrent sore throats, dealing with grief after losing my father, coping with relationship stress, IBS symptoms and for a long time a period of just not feeling well, as if my battery wasn’t recharging fully.
It is with much delight and excitement that I pour all my positive energy into treating others and helping them deal with their symptoms so they too can feel the benefits.
I operate from a home-based clinic in Sherborne, Dorset, ideally placed for those in the South West of England.
