I’m an emotional stress mentor and coach specialising in stress management for chronic illness recovery!
My approach & mission
I help people with chronic illness to release emotional barriers that may be hindering their recovery and empower them to take charge of their health journey.
As someone who understands the unique emotional journey of chronic illness, I believe that true healing goes beyond just the physical body – it requires addressing the emotional and mental aspects as well. Emotional stress and limiting beliefs can not only contribute to ill health, but also block us from finding our way back to health once dis-ease has taken over. Overcoming these will help to get you on the path to well being and wellness.
So, through my approach, we’ll work together to identify and release any past traumas or limiting beliefs that may be holding you back. My mission is to help you feel more calm, grounded, resilient, and empowered so that you can take charge of your health journey. Together, we’ll develop tools to help you manage stress, regulate your nervous system, navigate setbacks, and process emotions in a healthy way. And it’s not just about you – by taking care of your own emotional health, you’ll also be able to show up more fully in your relationships with your loved ones. And be better able to connect with them from a place of groundedness, calm and joy. So if you’re ready to start feeling like yourself again, let’s work together to unburden you TO achieve emotional mastery and a healthier, more fulfilling life.
Hi! I’m Rachel, and for years, chronic illnesses like Ehlers Danlos, IBS, foot pain, TMJ, chronic fatigue, hypothyroid, hormonal issues, chronic constipation, and fibromyalgia dimmed my light.
I spent 20 years searching for a cure, trying every expensive and harmful dead end, only to find my health progressively worsening. At times I felt like I wasn’t really living, but surviving only to work. Until the illness progressed and I had to give up the career I spent 16 years building.
During my journey, there were times when I was housebound. As the years passed I found myself feeling angry, afraid, alone, and full of self-pity, grieving the loss of my life, terrified by my symptoms and feeling guilty for what I put my partner through. Overtime, my emotions overwhelmed me and I stopped seeing a way forward. I didn’t know who I was anymore.
But a family death was the kick in the pants I needed to start working my way out of the mess I was in. I realised it was time to stop looking for other people to heal me. I needed to own the healing process myself, and that decision led me on a path of discovery where I came to understand that my emotional well-being had a significant impact on my physical health.
Instead of more panicked online searches, I took things back to basics. I focused on how I felt, my mindset, and my life experiences and how those had taken their toll on my health. I worked with people who could help me heal my emotions, using tools like EFT, and managed my emotional stress. As a result, my health improved.
The impact on my life from what I learned was so big that I knew I had to share it with others. I want to inspire and support you to become empowered in your own recovery journey and help you unburden from the emotional shackles keeping you stuck.
I am fascinated by mind body healing and how the human mind works. During my previous career, I studied human behaviour in relation to the use of technology, but now I am grateful to be able to apply my unique skills to help people find and unload their burdens. Helping people through their struggles is such a gift that I cherish. I am constantly learning, developing new skills and broadening my knowledge to be able to better assist my clients.
