Further information

I’m 49 years old and was diagnosed with M.E and Fibromyalgia during my studies, in that time with the help of Personal Counselling, I came to terms with the grief and loss that chronic health brought.

I am particularly interested in the area of chronic health from my own life experience and would like to support others come to terms with the grief and unwanted changes to their lives.
