About Me

I hit rock bottom about ten years ago after years of chronic stress when suddenly I couldn't sleep, could barely walk my then eight-year-old son to school in the morning and when I got home, was so exhausted I could barely face the washing up. What was particularly awful is that I was an acupuncturist, so I felt like a complete fraud and a failure to boot. In desperation I went to the doctors, but they told me I was peri-menopausal and stressed. Well, yes, I was, but I did not want to take antidepressants and whilst I accepted that stress may well have been behind all of what was going wrong, I felt convinced that something had gone wrong physiologically. If I could just work out what that was and fix it...


I tried many different therapies, some made a huge and instant improvement, some less so, but I learnt something useful from all of them. Over the past few years, I have pieced together a holistic combination of therapies that work to support both the mind and body to allow it to recover from being in virtual permanent flight or fight mode and to make good the physiological deficits that occur when we spend an extended period of time stuck in this mode.
