“My daughter, Lilly 8 years old and I had a health coaching video call with Deborah. I got in touch with Deborah to highlight the concerns I had following Lilly being in hospital. Knowing Lilly was in pain Deborah scheduled a meeting at short notice, for which I am very grateful. Prior to our call I was anxious as what to do for the best with Lilly as different doctors advised different steps moving forward. Deborah explained the doctors advice so that both Lilly and I understood.
During the call I loved how Deborah had genuine empathy for Lilly and listened to what challanges Lilly is facing. Most importantly understood that Lilly’s brain processes information differently being ADHD, ASD and doesn’t cope with changes. Deborah used simplified explanations and language that Lilly could understand. Deborah would check that Lilly had understood and was comfortable at intervals during the call. It was reassuring for me to see Lilly interact with Deborah and Lilly feel comfortable to answer questions. Lilly had the chance to explain how she felt now and how she felt about moving forward with small changes such as alternative foods to help her, and foods to avoid, routine, exercise and stretches.
Thank you very much Deborah. Highly recommended.”
I have suffered from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E) for 12 years. Trips to the doctors and specialists were a regular occurance but to no avail. At the begining of the year, after a major relapse and four weeks off work – I was sent a newspaper article from a family member about how osteopathy could help relieve the symptoms of M.E. With a view to trying to get my life back on track I decided I had nothing to lose!!
I suffered from acute headaches, dizzy spells, hardly being able to stand for long periods of time, enduring sore and aching muscle and painful joints. All this left me totally debilitated and exhausted.
Now thanks to Deborah, my headaches have almost gone and prescription painkillers are not part of my everyday diet. Food has also been varied and has improved the overall situation, together with supplements to aid the whole healing process – again all part of the advice given. Instead of adjusting my daily routine to always include rest time I am now able to do gradual exercise and enjoy my part time job.
I would definitely recommend Deborah to anyone who is suffering with the daily struggle of living with M.E.
For years I suffered with PMS and on finding painful lumps in my breast, I was referred to the breast clinic at the L&D hospital. 2 years later I went through the same experience again and on both occasions after every test that they could offer I was given the all clear and told that my symptoms were hormonal and to take over the counter painkillers to cope with my discomfort.
I was introduced to Deborah by my Mum months later. She asked me to be very honest and write down everything I ate and drank in the following week. From that Deborah suggested that I modify my diet.
Now, my life has turned around. I have very little and sometimes no PMS symptoms at all. My breast pain has gone and I have not taken a single painkiller since meeting Deborah. I still have ‘treats’ but my shopping and eating habits have changed.
Deborah’s expertise has helped me beyond words. I now see her for a 3 month MOT and we discuss my new lifestyle. For any woman who is suffering from PMS I recommend you speak to Deborah.
I would like to place on record my gratitude for the care and attention you have paid during the treatment I have received from you. I was unsure of exactly what to expect. From our first meeting I found your calm and considered approach very reassuring. I came hoping that somehow you could help me control my symptoms of asthma. I was very impressed with your knowledge and found that your suggestions for lifestyle adjustments had a real impact, and this, combined with osteopathic treatment, helped to reduce the medication I was using. Your professionalism and knowledge of your subject has been faultless and it is with absolutely no hesitation that I recommend you as a practitioner. Things continue to be very well for me and I’m hardly using my inhalers at the moment.
Dear Deborah, Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making me feel so good. My pain has completely gone and since fitting the arm strap correctly (stupid me) I played two hours of very hard tennis last night, something I haven’t been able to do since I first came to visit you… fantastic!
I would like to compliment you on your superb friendly manner and the way you make your patients (me) feel completely at ease in your presence. I don’t know if I will manage three months before my next visit (I’m getting withdrawal symptoms already) but I will do my best.
Since my diagnosis of M.E. 14 years ago, I have come to accept that throughout these years there are good times and the not so good, usually resulting in bed rest. I have previously seen many practitioners both conventional and complementary with a view to easing my symptoms, with minimal effect. After visiting Deborah, she has helped me to lessen the occurrence of these episodes and enabled me to be more comfortable when they crop up (no more prescription pain killers). The combination of advice on diet, supplements and exercises, along with the gentle treatments have left no stone un-turned. I have been treated with amazing professionalism wrapped up with great compassion by someone who goes way beyond the call of duty. I cannot recommend Deborah enough.
