Hi there, it's great to meet you.
Since you're ready to make an important choice in your life, I think it's important to learn more about how I came to be in front of you right now.
Watch this video to learn more about why and how I developed my skills as a Hypno Physio. This way you will feel even more comfortable about hypnosis before we work together.
Living with a progressive health condition
Pain education is important to me. No, scratch that, it's everything to me. That's because I live with a rare condition called Melorheostosis. It affects one in a million people and causes the bone to keep growing in unusual ways throughout your entire life.
You can see by my x-ray that my pointer finger has solid white bone that travels to my wrist. I've had 2 surgeries (contracture release in '99, carpal tunnel release in '13) and in the past I've had numbness, tingling, weakness, sharp pains, aching, and the deformity that goes with the condition.
The primary symptom of this condition can be pain, however I'm doing better now than I ever have in my life! I will teach you how I did it, and how you can do it too.
On top of meloheostosis, I started developing headaches and fatigue 8 years ago. At its worst, I could only function with a clear head for a few hours in the morning. It wasn't until two years ago that I was diagnosed with another health condition called Haemochromatosis. This condition causes increased iron in the blood, and it's taken since the diagnosis for me to learn how to manage this condition as well.
Everything in the Rethink Pain Workshop, from the online courses to our physiotherapy sessions, has been tried and tested by yours truly. Why do I do it? Well, if I can overcome a rare condition where the primary symptom is pain, and do so with grace, I can inspire others to do the same with their condition.
I give you my promise if you get started now, I will teach you everything I know about how to unlock the amazing power in your own body to heal.
My mission is simple
Empower the mind, body and spirit of people to feel better and have a great time doing it.
I teach principles.
As a physiotherapist I can't "fix your pain". I cannot "cure chronic pain" or magically heal you. In the Rethink Pain Workshop I teach you to understand what pain is, how it works and what you can do about it. If you're looking for a quick fix or someone to do something for you, this is not for you. However, if you are ready to take complete ownership of your healing process I can teach you principles to promote an environment of healing.
I believe there is always something that you can personally do in order to heal.
There's a lot of research and neuroscience that can back me up in saying that too.
I am a Physiotherapist living with a rare health condition.
This gives me a unique perspective on pain. I've taken courses, read books, listened to podcasts, and worked with thousands of people living in pain over the years. I've given over 100 presentations on the topic of pain, healing and hypnosis, and continue to educate people on a daily basis. Everything I teach, I have tested on myself first so you get only the best of what's out there.
Knowledge truly is power, if taught in the correct way.
I've studied how we learn so I can teach you in the most effective way. Pain is serious, but that doesn't mean the education has to be dry and boring. I am confident that my passion for education will make your experience not just beneficial, but enjoyable!
How do I do it? By providing experiences that re-enforce what you've learned.
I don't want to do something and tell you it works. I want to show you.
