About Me

Pain & Fatigue Recovery Practitioner, Trauma Informed Coach and
Internal Family Systems Informed Coach. 

Having been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1999 and finding
conventional treatment unhelpful, Amanda explored a Mind-Body approach to her 
recovery, which she now shares with her clients. Amanda is an Advanced Level Pain & Fatigue Recovery Practitioner and Wellbeing Coach, specialising in treating clients with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Amanda is passionate and dedicated to helping people with chronic pain and fatigue to regain their wellness and joy in life. Amanda believes in treating the person holistically, exploring every aspect of their life, including past unresolved traumas, helping them to move forward and fulfil their true potential. Building a trusting relationship between client and practitioner is very important for recovery and Amanda does this with
compassion and a gentle nudge in the right direction when necessary.
