Empowering Your Recovery

In July 2019 several respected healthcare institutions called for changes to the delivery of cancer care across the UK with greater focus on ‘prehabilitation’, including nutrition, exercise and psychological support’ to improve treatment options, side effects and recovery. It’s an approach I’ve been advocating for more than 20 years, and something I’m uniquely qualified to provide. A cancer diagnosis is something we all dread, but it can also be a wake up call to reclaim our power, restore our health and revamp our lives.

In 2020, drawing on everything I’ve learned from sixteen years of helping individual women with breast cancer, I will be launching the Power Through Breast Cancer workshops. These practical and information-packed education days will condense twenty-two years of survivorship into a few hours of life-changing inspiration, providing a springboard to making more informed choices about your future. The programme is based on the knowledge that cancer is not simply a runaway genetic condition, it’s a metabolic disease that can be profoundly influenced by changes in diet and lifestyle. My aim is to empower you to understand your diagnosis, ask better questions, get more out of treatment, manage side effects, identify personal risk factors, recover more quickly, and alleviate fear and uncertainty. The workshops are suitable for everyone at every stage, whether you are interested in prevention, you are a BRCA carrier, or at any stage post diagnosis.

For breast cancer patients wanting a more individual approach I offer personalised clinical consultations, and for those dealing with complex or advanced disease I offer an in-depth approach based on a suite of tests that assess tumour sensitivity, genetic polymorphisms and hormone metabolism. You can read more about this over here.

Please sign up to the waitlist to stay up to date with dates for workshops.   

I just wanted to add my voice to the admiration and encouragement for your next steps, it’s a fantastic idea and I eagerly look forward to seeing what emerges, you are such a positive, informative and supportive resource for women with breast cancer, if ever you feel that your voice is being minimised by those with narrower narratives than yours (medical modal etc) just remember the community of women and medical professionals who do believe in your vast expertise and passion…..you deserve an OBE for all that you have achieved and continue to offer

Our sessions have had a massive impact on me. I fast almost everyday and  I sit in my garden every morning come rain or shine and drink my black coffee, which in turn means I now have a daily bowel movement without fail, which In turn makes me so happy! It’s a great start to the day and has such an impact on my mental state. Plus I sleep much better now I get morning daylight

I’m rambling but the info and advice you’ve given me, along with the supplements you’ve recommended have really made a difference to how much better I feel. Thanks so much for getting me to a stage where I don’t think about cancer all the time and I feel empowered that I can keep myself well.

All the best to you and your family. May you have wonderful adventures!
