“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”- Lao Tzu
The journey to optimum health and wellbeing, also begins this way.
Optimal health encompasses many components, including good nutrition, exercise, emotional wellbeing, self care, joy, relationships, that is a true embracing of the mind, body, spirit connection. When there is ill health, there is often an imbalance in one or more of these areas. Restoring balance and reconnection through correcting the imbalances helps to create the conditions to support our bodies’ healing.
Jennifer has qualifications in Naturopathy, Nutrition, Psychotherapy and Counselling, Coaching Psychology, along with additional post graduate training and experience focusing on mind body integration, such as Somatic Experiencing and Neuro-Affective touch. There are overlaps to all of these modalities, allowing holistic approach, focusing on creating the conditions for healing, from supporting physiology, psychology and inter-connection between all our systems, relationships and wider environment.
Both physiological and psychological approaches work on the principle that we have tremendous capacity to heal, given the right conditions. From a nutritional / naturopathic perspective this means supporting the body and mind with adequate nutrients, hydration, rest, sleep and exercise, supported by supplementation and herbal medicines when required; and from a psychological perspective it means supporting the nervous system, healing unresolved trauma and stress which has remained trapped in the tissues and reinforced heightened survival mechanisms. These are the fundamental guidelines within the complexity of these approaches, all in the context of our own individual histories which have become woven into the fabric of our identity.
