Christine Lauritsen qualified as a Physiotherapist at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary in 1975 and worked in a number of NHS hospitals before spending the next 16 years travelling abroad as a military wife. On return to UK she continued to work in a number of NHS and BUPA hospitals as an orthopaedic physiotherapist. She was also physiotherapist to a Fife Rugby Club before training as a Nutritional Therapist and starting her own Private Physiotherapy and Nutritional Therapy Clinic in Aberdeenshire in 1994. She now runs a busy practice in Glasgow but also sees clients in Edinburgh and via Skype consutlations.
I spent most of last week and the week-end putting together a draft outline for a talk I am planning to give on how important it is for our emotional and mental well-being to eat healthy and nutritious food. It reminded me of one of the very first books that I read on mental health, when I was still a physiotherapist.
After trying several other counsellors, I found Christine's web pages and arranged counselling. I have found that she is the only one who really seems to understand my complicated situation and is supporting me through it - no judgement, and she also can treat me physically as well as emotionally which makes more sense.
My time spent with Christine has been life changing. Her warmth radiates through everything she has taught me and helped support me through. With Christines expertise I managed to regain my equilibrium when all of lifes chaos finally took its toll.
During my second session we practised the Rewind technique to help release previous trauma which had been trapped and seemingly creating unhealthy patterns in my life.
In my early teens I was involved in a traumatic event which at the time seemed so dreadful that I couldn’t tell anyone. I felt there was no one I could turn to, so I bottled it all up. Looking back I can see that for several years I was actually quite badly depressed, however I eventually moved on and in my later teens and as an adult I had an interesting life, did lots of challenging and rewarding things - life gave me many opportunities and I felt very lucky, however I always felt as if I had to keep busy to escape from something - whatever that something was. Feelings of fear occasionally surfaced and I did have a few, usually short, bursts of depression, but nothing which felt overwhelming, although as the years went on I did feel I had to run faster and faster to keep ahead of whatever it was I was fleeing from.
Hi Christine, Herewith the promised testimonial. Please edit as you feel fit - it was quite hard putting so much into such a small space!
