Alchemy Therapies – Transforming your wellbeing…
Welcome to the home of mindbody therapy and wellbeing
Coronavirus Update: Stress, fear & trauma reduce your immunity. I work with your body’s natural systems to tackle your anxiety with proven methods that change how you feel . NOW offering in person appointments subject to the usual precautions of social distancing. Online appointments continue as normal. Please see my facebook page for updates and my youtube channel for an insight into all the fascinating science that is coming out of the pandemic and problems with anxiety caused by the economic impact. It is likely we will see more trauma in the coming months and years.. as well as long-covid – undoubtedly linked to longterm chronic stress.
I am Dr Patricia Worby PhD*, ex research scientist and now trauma therapist specialising in post viral anxiety, chronic pain and fatigue. Most of these conditions have chronic stress at their root especially from Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)*. Everyone has these to some extent – especially relational traumas of difficult birth, bad school experiences, depression or chronic illness in the family, etc. You may not realise you have any as shame will tell you it’s YOU that is bad/wrong and there is nothing you can do about it. The more you have, the worse health outcomes and more difficulties you have in life. Using proven techniques of nutrition, bodywork and emotional release to clear this imprint is vital so that you can live a joyful and connected life free from anxiety, chronic infections, pain, fatigue, insomnia, migraines, all of which can be successfully resolved.
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. tackle the root causes of the problem, rather than suppressing symptoms tackle the root causes of the problem, rather than suppressing symptoms
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.
I have written extensively on the subject of health and healing from an integrated approach – my 3 books are listed on the books page and available on Amazon. Please do explore the site and get in touch if you are interested in contacting me,
Causes of Disease
According to Natural Medicine there are some features common to all illness/disease;
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Gut dysbiosis (imbalance of gut flora)
- Hormone dysfunction
- Lack of exercise/poor posture (fascial restriction)
- Emotional blockages
By approaching each of these in turn and using my bespoke programme of 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.
