“Healthy Body, healthy Mind and healthy Spirit. A Votre Sante ” ~ Kathy Smith
Little Red Flags
If it was only as easy as just having a healthy body, mind and spirit … !
So often within my coaching practice, I see professional people who, as defined by our society, seem to have ‘made it’; they’ve a family, good job & pay, they eat healthily, exercising (vigorously) every day .. Overachieving or over-giving .. Striving to be good enough .. and healthy enough.
Why do I see them in my practice then…?
Because … at the time their health deteriorated and/or crashes, they are under enormous pressure in work and personal life. They’ll have had many ‘little red flags’ (increasing headaches, joint pains, dizziness, extreme fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, sleep disturbances, low mood, irritability, not able to relax well); all early warning signs. And they can’t ignore them any longer!
Burn Out & Chronic Fatigue
Can you relate to the above …? You’ve been tired for a while, pushing through … but this is where the extreme fatigue hits, and suddenly you can’t even move your legs out of the bed anymore. You didn’t have time to stop but now you have no idea why you are feeling like this, because you always got things done, you were always available, exercised loads and worked hard, ate well … What’s gone wrong?? Even after a rest, you still feel exhausted and have no energy to go on for long! What’s more … nobody understands. ‘You look fine to me!’
Your GP may diagnose you with a Chronic Exhaustive Condition … and sends you home to treat your symptoms, with no real answers and no further support. What’s next …??
As a Holistic Therapist and Chrysalis Effect Specialist Practitioner, I specialise in ME/CFS & Fibromyalgia Recovery and Prevention of chronic exhaustive conditions. I work with subtle energies that flow through and around us, for the purpose of releasing any stagnant energies that may be keeping us stuck in ‘dis-ease’ through my coaching and therapies. I also have my own experience with burnout; I know how important it is to intercept the progress of these kind of conditions, to not allow for them to possibly turn into a long-term illness and chronic pain. If you’d like to stop ‘practitioner hopping’, have the guesswork taken out of your symptoms and return to health, please get in touch!
