Holistic Health & Spiritual Life Coach/
Firstly, I am a mother of 3 beautiful children 11/17/21 years old (2021)
After suffering from & being diagnosed with Depression as a teenager, connecting with a Counsellor who showed me time and empathy, is what inspired me to train in the Counselling sector.
I had many sales jobs in my teens, Insurance, selling & valuing property, however I started my career as a Person Centred Counsellor in 2004, after 4 years i furthered my education and specialised in Couples Therapy.
Over the years I've had my own fare share of physical & mental health issues, from Post Natal Depression, Anxiety, Endometriosis & Fibromyalgia. Currently in the process of being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease
After having several years of suffering with Fibromyalgia and Endometriosis, at my worst i was bed ridden for days as i couldn't walk or feel my legs (2015) since than i have jogged, run, gone to the gym and pushed myself to where i am today, with an extreme amount of determination and belief that I CAN DO THIS!
All i kept being told by medical professionals was to take anti depressants, get a walking stick and a stair lift in my home (so basically give up!) I went against the grain because i knew if i gave up mentally, than physically would soon follow and i knew that I COULD BEAT THIS! especially with my professional knowledge, years research and the journey i had with my son (explained below) I knew I could heal myself holistically with exercise, nutrition, meditation & mindset.
I CONTINUE TO LEARN AND BATTEL ON EVERYDAY.
DONT LET ANYONE TELL YOU WHAT YOUR LIMITS ARE...
My son (now 21) was diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome and ADHD in 2007 aged 7. I was unaware at the time, however this kick started my Holistic career. My son was expelled from mainstream school, I home schooled him for 1.5 years, after a long fight, i had to write to the education board to get him a statement of special needs, which was granted. He attended a special need school for the rest of his education, which was an amazing and very supportive school New Rush Hall School Barkingside.
He was given medication for the ADHD so that he could concentrate in school, however this made his Tourettes worse, from vocal to physical.
This made my son very depressed and he recluse. I told him i would find something to help and i did! I researched obsessively for 3 weeks and i found something, that went onto amaze me!
I found a concoction of natural medicine L-carltinine, 5HTP & Flaxseed oil, I stopped his medication from GP immediately, under the doctors guidance. Within 1 month of taking plant based medicine, his tics had rapidly reduced, within 3 months completely gone and he was not taking any medicine at all. I was into meditation at the time so i taught my son deep breathing techniques and meditation. His love for playing the piano and singing also help him learn self control and was how he managed his tics.
I was so amazed at how quickly and effectively this natural medicine worked, I wanted to learn more! so i looked into it further, found a course in Herbalism completed this within 1 year, done an advanced Herbalism course, which taught me how to make my own remedies, capsules, tincture, herbal tea, body butters & soaps, the list goes on. I than went onto study Reflexology and Reiki and i continued to study various healing modalities right up until 2015, alongside my own self development, healing & extensive research in all subjects. My own health conditions, also inspired me to study nutrition and research as much as i could about various ailments, emotionally, mentally & physically.
Fast forward to today, my son has completed level 3 BTEC
in performing arts and acting, is currently at University doing a Digital Media Degree and shows no signs of ticking, only when he gets stressed, excited or frustrated will they slightly appear, however they are very mild, he had not had medication for over 10 years until he started University which he researched what medication was right for him and went to the doctors and shows his findings and was monitored very closely, he needed medication for his ADHD to focus and uni and tis has been a great help for him and he continues to do well and i am very proud of the young man he has become.
As a result of our journey and my love for the healing arts Renaissance Wellbeing Clinic was born.
Tourette's Action was a massive part in educating not only my family but my sons school.
As a family we have learnt to accept the cards we have been given, learnt a whole lot about ourselves along the way, embracing each day. One thing i have imbedded in my family, is to not let our circumstances define us and if we want something bad enough, do everyhing we can to make it happen, even though the odds may seem against us.....it will happen!
