A Holistic Approach to Sleep & Wellbeing
With over 20 years in healthcare and well-being, I provide educational wellbeing workshops online and in person across a wide range of areas including Stress, Sleep, Posture, Diet, and Exercise and run Osteopathy, Hypnotherapy, Stress Management, Sleep Coaching and Naturopathy clinics in North London. Most therapies are available online too.
After graduating from Reading University with a degree in Food Science and Food Economics in 1980 I ended up working in marketing and advertising, before selling my home 26 years ago to pay for my training in Osteopathy and Naturopathy.
My qualifications and training include BSC degrees in Food Science and Economics, and Osteopathy (1st Class) along with a Diploma in Naturopathy and certified training in Hypnotherapy and Stress Management. My extensive background and expertise in wellbeing enable me to bring a wealth of knowledge to my workshops.
I offer individual treatment and interventions across a wide range of conditions and wellness challenges from lack of sleep and stress to bad backs and poor posture, to exercise and dietary advice, addiction and low self-esteem, and even treat babies with colic and tongue-tie being a qualified Cranial Osteopath.
Thesleepite.co.uk launched in 2014 and provided the springboard to my advice and expertise being covered in the media. My wellbeing tips and advice have been featured in the Telegraph, Independent, Daily Mail, and Daily Express, Sun, Mirror, as well as the home pages of Yahoo and Mums.net and a host of other media. I am regularly on BBC Radio.
I have also worked on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing as their Osteopath and had the privilege to work with clients including Intercontinental Hotels, Eve Sleep, Mind Candy, and Premier Inn as their brand ambassador during my wellness career.
In terms of wellbeing, my belief is that a good night’s sleep is the fundamental pillar of physical, mental, and emotional health. It affects how we feel, how we behave, and our ability to perform, whatever the age. Understanding how to manage stress, keeping a balance on healthy foods to eat, and maintaining exercise goals all become easier after a good night’s sleep.
“The challenge of maintaining optimum health for both ourselves and our families has probably never been as complex. Our 24/7 technology-driven, time-poor, lifestyle is a long way from our Paleo origins and often leads us back to our basic ‘fight or flight nervous system’ leaving us feeling stressed and far from in control of our health and wellbeing. Understanding the basics of ‘how our bodies and brains are designed to work’ gives us the platform to build routines that support the best possible physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing at work rest, and play’’.
