Are you wondering if your health problem has something to do with stress?
When we have a short-lived health problem, there's plenty of help available, and life quickly goes back to normal.
But if you're living with a stressful pattern of recurring pain, it's a different thing altogether.
It all seems completely random. The symptoms - headaches, back pain, tinnitus, chronic fatigue, digestive problems or other unexplained problems - just appear when they feel like it, dictating how you live your life.
You try everything you know to treat these symptoms, but still they come back, or a different symptom appears.
You keep asking Dr Google (even though you know it’ll just scare you) but you’re no further forward.
Meanwhile you’re kept busy managing your pain, and the anxiety that creeps in behind it.
You're beginning to suspect that it all has to do with stress in some way, but you can’t quite work it out, or see your way through it.
If you're getting really tired of this thing, and just want to enjoy life again, I'd like to help.
So first, here's my take on it:
The truth is, getting lasting relief from recurring pain means going beyond just treating your physical body.
It means seeing how the strains have built up to this point, and how tension in your mind has led to tension in your body. It means listening to what's really going on for you emotionally, so that a picture starts to emerge and you're clear about what you need in order to heal.
It's about uncovering what’s at the heart of your health issue.
This is the turning point. It's liberating to see at long last what is really behind your pain. This new awareness is relieving in itself, but also energises you for the things in your life you really want to focus on.
I’d love to show you exactly how.
I'm Claire, and I’m here to help you to slow down, honour your experience with kindness, and connect the dots between your pain and your wider life story, so that these insights can not only bring you relief, but guide you to move beyond just coping, to thriving.
