“I started 2018 feeling pretty low and at odds with my entire body. I was constantly tired, bloated, had stomach ache and brain fog. To top it off I felt extremely frustrated and anxious because I tried so hard to eat well, get plenty of sleep and I loved exercise. So why did I feel so awful? But then I got put in touch with Lara and from the moment we met I knew it would all work out ok. The relief I felt at talking through every detail of how I was feeling and have someone not only fully understand but also completely support me was unbelievable. Lara has the kindest heart and I knew there was never a single ounce of judgement. She made me realise that it was ok to be feeling the way I did.
Lara has been totally open since day one about the process we would go through, the way she works and what I should expect. She always explains what is happening in my body or with treatment in a way that makes sense to me and ensures I’m happy with all decisions. I have complete faith and trust not only in her technical skills but also in her genuine care for her clients. I wasn’t prepared for the emotional side of what I was going through. But, of course, Lara was with me every step of the way: talking through how I was feeling; where I was struggling; and how to be at peace with myself. These weren’t just short-term coping mechanisms, they were tools for a happy and healthy life. It is always about the bigger picture.
Lara has taught me so much about both my mind and my body and how they work together. I now feel so in tune with my body and can better understand what it needs at different times. My self-confidence, which had taken a dive, has massively increased. I feel more comfortable in my own skin, which is so liberating!
The difference in how I feel now compared to 12 months ago is astounding. I knew that this would be a long journey, with ups and downs, and there is still some way to go, but there is no one I would rather have supporting me through it. I am so thankful every day that I have Lara – I honestly don’t know where I would be without her.”
