Welcome to Alchemy Therapies
Transforming your wellbeing…
Welcome to the home of mindbody therapy and wellbeing. My name is Dr Patricia Worby PhD*; I am a former research scientist, health researcher and now trauma therapist with a special interest in chronic pain and fatigue. I offer a holistic approach using nutrition, bodywork, emotional release and the general principles of Naturopathy (Natural Medicine). This is a systems-based approach that looks at the person not the condition and uses a range of treatments to tackle the root causes of the problem, rather than suppressing symptoms so that you can live a painfree, joyful and connected life. It is profoundly successful for many common issues such as:
- Musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction (bad backs, frozen shoulder, RSI’s)
- Depression, anxiety and stress
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, Fibroymyalgia
- Autoimmune disorders
- Trauma and unresolved emotion
- Hormonal issues, Insomnia
- Habits, phobias, and fears
- Cravings, poor motivation, self-esteem
Healing the Mindbody
Your mind and body are one; they are not separate hence I use the term ‘mindbody’. What you think impacts upon the body; how one lives moulds our physical self; they are intimately connected. See my video presentation on this subject here.
I fully believe healing starts from the inside out and I use a range of approaches to address your issues depending on your individual needs. It is my belief that we cannot heal fully unless we approach the physical, mental and emotional causes of disease. Most people miss out the latter. Emotions are felt in the body and they profoundly change the stress response. See my videos for more information on this. I usually start with the physical however as we must support the body to heal itself. I recommend foods and Cytoplan food state supplements when needed to kick start that process.
Causes of Disease
According to Natural Medicine there are some features common to all illness/disease;
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Gut dysbiosis (imbalance of gut flora)
- Adrenal/Thyroid dysfunction
- Lack of exercise/poor posture
- Emotional blockages
By approaching each of these in turn and using some tried and tested methods to support you in your healing journey, I encourage you to enjoy full health and wellbeing. See my books, and free download to the right of this page and my Facebook page for more information.
I am a wellbeing coach (ILM), hypnotherapist (GHR), trauma therapist and Chrysalis Effect Practitioner (specialist in Chronic Fatigue syndrome and Fibromyalgia). I have truly ‘walked my talk’ and healed myself from chronic pain and fatigue – for more about me and my story see the About page.. and my blog on this site and Healthwarrior.
I work from my home clinic and also by Skype. See the Consultation page for details.
