Freedom from Pain
the mind connection
Is pain affecting your daily life?
Has it been with you for more than three months? Have your medical & therapy teams been unable
to find an answer to your symptoms?
SIRPA, Persistent Pain Relief
I invite you to join in with the leading edge & remarkable pain relief approach developed by SIRPA (Stress Illness Recovery Practitioners Association), so you too can find your way to relieve your persistent pain and regain your life once again. This approach has helped so many people achieve relief from conditions such as chronic/persistent pain in the back, neck, shoulder, elbow, hips, knees, feet, sciatica, together with Fibromyalgia & "RSI".
Update your Knowledge
All pain is real, and science has now proved that established beliefs, unhelpful behavioural habits and emotional trauma & turmoil from our past and present life experiences contribute to nerve pathways which can create &/or maintain pain - even in the absence of anything being physically wrong with the part of you that hurts. Sometimes, just acknowledging and accepting this, can bring relief.
Develop new Skills
By identifying and addressing the factors specific to you, with a variety of cognitive strategies and lifestyle changes, you can reprogram your nerve pathways and relieve your symptoms. Journaling, self-care practices, meditation & mindfulness are just a few of the life-changing techniques that you can learn and regularly practice at home.
YOU can get Better
No matter how severe your symptoms or how long you've been suffering, you too can achieve relief.
Be Empowered - Improve at Home too
Although we work through this programme together, and I guide & support you on your journey to relief, I will recommend certain techniques & practices for you to continue at home on a daily basis.
Persistence is key.
"Keep doing the work and you can succeed."

Activate Strength, Flexibility & Recovery
with Be Activated
the body connection
Have you been injured?
Do you have aches, pains or tension?
Are you struggling to work, perform or have fun?
Are you finding it difficult to reach full activity?
Be Activated is an impressive & empowering whole-body physical assessment & treatment approach that can measurably & swiftly improve your strength & flexibility, relieve your tension, pain & stress, and thus promote healing from injury and enhance your energy, movement & performance.
Restore & Revive
We discover how your body's patterns of muscle activity & co-ordination may be contributing to your problem or injury. We then work to sequentially stimulate & re-balance your body back towards its more optimal pain-free, strong, flexible and resilient state.
Working from your central muscles outwards, we use simple, brief massage techniques on specific areas to re-engage unused muscle potential and release tension. As we carefully measure and feel the immediate changes in strength &/or flexibility of each muscle group tested & treated, we often quickly see dramatic improvements - even "mind blowing" ones sometimes! From these changes we create treatment specific to you.
Who can Benefit
This method is used successfully around the world on people with all levels of function, fitness and age, from an older person hoping to walk more easily and comfortably to our top performing young Olympians.
Be Empowered - Improve at Home too
Customised programmes are developed for you to continue at home, preferably in the mornings & especially before activity, training or sport.
"Because the nerve pathways involved in chronic pain are reversible,
full recovery is possible..."
