“Success begins with just one step outside of your comfort zone.”

Tracey Marinelli

 If you are battling Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions, you will know how frustrating it is to be on a constant mission of trying to find that one miracle fix that will take away all of your pain and fatigue. Sadly, I am not in the granting wishes business, but I can offer you almost 30 years of experience in dealing with my own Fibromyalgia. I spent years finding out what works and basically what didn't and believe me when I say there was a lot that didn't. I will save you hours and hours of googling, research and reading as I share all my coping strategies, tips and tools alongside proven strategies which enable me to live a life whereby "I thrive, not just survive" and all whilst being medication free. As a qualified Wellness Coach, I will stand alongside you as we empower you in finding out what works best for you.


"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style."

Yep, our comfort zone is certainly safe and comfortable but it is also a place where nothing grows. No hopes, no spark, no incentives and no change. Over time, left in our comfort zone we will basically stagnate!
