From a customer to a provider of complementary health
Hello and welcome to Thrive.
I am a Wellness Coach specialising in Kinesiology, Nutrition & Emotion. I help support all aspects of your physical and emotional health and am a firm believer that the two are inextricably linked.
Working with babies from 6 months old to adults in their 80s, my specialist areas include:
* MANAGING STRESS (perfectionism, exhaustion and adrenal fatigue)
* DIGESTION (including food intolerances, IBS & migraines)
* ANXIETY (self doubt, self sabotage, NLP techniques)
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 including Somerset, Devon and Wiltshire. I also treat clients nationally via zoom and skype sessions.
