After 28 years working & studying in the Health & Social Care sector Carmel set up her own wellbeing practice in 2016. Just prior to setting up independently, Carmel worked for the Stroke Association as a Stroke Prevention Co-Ordinator where she developed and facilitated a six weekly Healthy Lifestyle Programme (HLP) and weekly Tai Chi sessions for stroke survivors and their carers. She brings a wide breadth of knowledge and experience to her practice and is passionate about the positive benefits that improved wellbeing can bring to a person’s life. She is particularly interested in helping people deal with loneliness and social isolation, this stems from her time managing West Norfolk Befriending, where she was employed to set up and develop a service to help tackle the growing problem in West Norfolk.
Carmel is based at Oaklee, her home in Norfolk overlooking the North Wootton woods, where her focus is to provide the space and support to help people find their own solutions and thus build long-term resilience. Every aspect of her work is delivered with a caring and thoughtful approach with the client’s needs at its centre and all underpinned by the Human Givens teachings as she believes its common-sense approach lends a very practical and effective way of understanding human behaviour.
She sees people on a one to one basis in her therapy room and runs a number of day retreats, in addition she also delivers wellbeing and relaxation programmes for organisations.
She has full DBS disclosure and ensures confidentiality and discretion at all times.
