Mentoring for Health Professionals

Are you a qualified health professional wanting to increase your knowledge & skills around chronic fatigue, burnout or insomnia? Or are you looking for support & advice for some of your more complex cases?

People get so tired of feeling tired all the time.  They can get frustrated, irritable and even depressed and often by the time they turn to natural health practitioners their cases have become both complex and complicated. This is where I can step in and help you. I offer once-off case assistance for healthcare practitioners who are really stuck with a difficult case as well as ongoing mentoring for newly graduated health professionals.

What will you gain from being mentored?

  • You’ll have my 20+ years’ of experience to draw on and support you while you build your knowledge and confidence in working with your clients
  • Together we’ll untangle your client’s cases so that you can create comprehensive treatment plan for them
  • We’ll establish what diagnostic tests you should run and why; or, if you already have test results we’ll review and analyse them together
  • You’ll get a chance to ask any questions you may have about your clients’ conditions or their mechanisms of action
  • We’ll discuss techniques of how to explore the deeper, more emotional causes of fatigue, burnout or insomnia.

“The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.”

Brian Herbert

Take a look at my online courses below. I have created them specially for health professionals like you who are looking to extend your knowledge & skills in integrative health.

These courses assume you already have a knowledge of basic anatomy and physiology and are working in the health industry or studying towards a qualification. They are not for absolute beginners, but are, instead aimed at complementary health therapists, beauty therapists, yoga instructors and health coaches wishing to extend their knowledge. They are CPD-approved for members of ThinkTree Hub (UK).

Let’s Talk About Gut Health

This course is an in-depth look at gut health and will give you the knowledge and confidence to help clients who are struggling with digestive issues and who don’t really know what to do or where to begin.

In this course you will learn the basics of what a healthy gut should be like, what makes a gut healthy and some of the most common underlying causes of poor gut health. You will take a look at topics such as ‘leaky gut’ and the gut microbiome, the importance of good eating habits and the effects of stress on the gut. Most importantly, you will discover how to talk to your clients about gut health and help them help themselves through small changes in their diet and lifestyle.

Let’s Talk About Inflammation

This online course is an in-depth look at chronic inflammation and will equip you with the knowledge to talk confidently to your clients about this subtle yet dangerous physiological process.

In addition, the course will give you simple tools to help your clients unravel the causes of their chronic inflammation as well as explore possible solutions.

In this course we will cover the basic physiology of chronic inflammation and you will learn how to detect what your client is doing in their day-to-day life that is either causing or fuelling their inflammation. You will take a look at topics such as ‘leaky gut’, dysbiosis, leptin-resistance and food intolerances. Most importantly, you will discover how to talk to your clients about chronic inflammation and help them help themselves through small changes in their diet and lifestyle.

Let’s Talk About You & Stress

The experience of stress is different for each and every one of us and so the focus of this course is not so much on the physiology of stress and its impact on the body. It is instead on how you, as a therapist or health professional, can guide your client through exploring their own stressors and how they can learn to deal and cope with their stress in their own way.

This is a course with a difference. Although it’s aim is to empower you to help your clients cope with stress, the course itself has been developed as a journey through which you take yourself. As you progress through this journey, you will not only learn different tools and techniques to help you cope with stress, you will also experience these techniques first hand and so be able to help your clients on a very deep level. We hope you enjoy the experience!

Let’s Talk About Connection

Free webinar

If you’re interested in health coaching then have a listen to this webinar recorded in 2020. In this webinar I introduce the concept of health coaching and help you examine what it means to be a guide and mentor.

It is actually a webinar with a bit of a twist because if you listen to it, you will quickly realise that you end up doing most of the work and I am simply your guide. By the end of the webinar I will hopefully have opened up the world of health coaching and you will have some reliable tools to help you connect with your clients.

You will be able to mentor your clients as they explore what is really going on in their health and, importantly, you will be able to help them uncover the main underlying physiological ‘process’ that is taking place.
