Gabriella Clarke MHS MNCS (ACC).
When I was 18 months old I experienced my first adverse childhood event which no doubt caused many of the problems I was going to come up against further down the line. I can remember having IBS like symptoms from the age of about 6 and experiencing states of panic as I lay in bed at night trying to get to sleep but thinking far too deeply. I had recurrent dreams that were linked to the accident I was in when I was a baby. By age 14 I was also diagnosed with Raynauds phenomenon and I had some back pain so I decided to learn and practise yoga to help manage my symptoms. My teenage years were exciting and dangerous but I thought I felt fine. No doubt all the teenage distractions like boys, going out, music and alcohol helped. Things took a dramatic turn for the worst when I moved out of my family home aged 19 and attempted to try and fend for myself. It was then that I was diagnosed with depression, anxiety disorder and OCD. My mental health has had a very negative impact on my body but I have lived to tell the tail. The reason I am sharing this with you is because it is led me to where I am today and to provide the services that you see listed below and gain the qualifications related to those services. I could bore you with more stuff I’ve done like work in hospitals, care homes, run a radio show, volunteered, travelled etc but I won’t. The biggest take home on health that I want to finish with is that less is more. If you want to improve your health eat better, sleep better, calm your mind, move your body in a healthy way (no metafit is not included), get more sunshine and connect with people that are good for you and don’t pull you down or fill you with negativity. Some of my services aim to help you do just this.
