About

 

Hello, I’m Amy. A certified Embodiment Coach, 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher and a Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator.   

I often refer to myself as a ‘recovering over-doer’. Living in my body, rather than my head is something that I have had to work on over the years.  

I began coaching people in my former management roles in media organisations. It was here, I first trained as a mental health first aider.  

In 2018, I developed a pain and fatigue condition. As life as I knew it crumbled, I committed to healing and building an authentic life for myself. Already studying yoga, I deepened my knowledge on the ‘mind body connection’, ultimately discovering that there isn’t really a divide.

I became fascinated with learning about the nervous system, modern pain science and the impact of chronic stress and trauma.   

I spent a lot of time on the floor. Meditating and moving gently when able to. I learnt how to tune into my needs, feel and process my feelings and regain movement patterns. I slowed down and developed my ability to feel safe, in doing so. My pain gradually diminished and energy levels increased over time. My relationship with myself blossomed. I connected to what it is I truly value from life and how I could best be of service to others.

Once well enough, I took additional training to develop my repertoire of skills, so I could support people going through their own challenges. Whilst my lived experience is helpful, I know that we are all individual and wanted to ensure that I applied rigour and range to the methods, I could offer. I am always learning and believe there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. Everything needs to be tailored to the person in question.   

I set up my business to help others on their path. From unravelling chronic stress, burnout, persistent pain and fatigue conditions, to helping people figure out what this ‘being human gig’ means to them. Supporting them in enriching their relationships to themselves and others, whilst building a joyful, embodied and authentic life.   

I work with a wide range of clients of all ages and backgrounds – from those bed bound from pain, fatigue, illness or burnout to those with busy and active lifestyles. I work both online and in person. I am based just outside of Sheffield in the UK.
