My intention with An Olive Branch is to help lead the body back into balance and good health.
I believe that the body has an incredible capacity to heal given the right environment. This involves looking at the whole picture: the mental, emotional and physical terrain.
The Greek Philosopher Socrates acknowledged some 2,000 years ago that you cannot separate the mind from the body. The mind and its emotions profoundly interact with the body’s nervous system, hormonal system and immune system. Each does not live in isolation.
If we are to cope with the stresses of modern living and the significant increase in depression and anxiety we need to acknowledge the part that stress plays in dis-ease only then can we move forward and heal.
I believe there is much we can do.
My interest in Complementary Medicine began after I was diagnosed with Glandular Fever and Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome aged 19.
I specialise in working with people of all ages suffering with anxiety and the effects of stress.
