Chronic pain affects almost 28 million UK adults and can be driven by inflammation, neuropathy and/or central nervous system sensitisation. Persistent, long-term pain can present as a variety of conditions such as arthritis, migraine, fibromyalgia, back pain and gynaecological pelvic pain, among others. In this seminar, we will be exploring the underlying causes of chronic pain and we will look at nutrition and lifestyle interventions that can be considered in managing these debilitating conditions.
In our CPD seminars, we will be presenting evidence-based scientific research on nutritional intervention in relation to cronic pain.
Our live events are CPD certified, and lunch will be provided for all attendees.
The event starts with registration and coffee and tea at 09:30am, the seminar will start at 10:00am and finish at 4pm.
Have you ever experienced a client that just seemed resistant to change?
Katie Sheen did while working as a Nutritional Therapist. This was a catalyst for Katie to become interested in behaviour and eventually, an experienced mindfulness teacher. Katie is able to guide others to meaningfully support their clients, enabling them to overcome common psychological and behavioural barriers to the changes we recommend as part of nutritional protocols.
Katie qualified from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in 2008, developing her private practice with a focus on mental health whilst gradually moving into teaching full time. She is an accredited Breathworks ‘Mindfulness for Health’ Teacher, also offering courses in the Plum Village tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
Fascinated by the mind-body interplay and drawing on 20 years of experience in cancer support, she began to weave mindfulness into nutritional protocols whilst Module Leader for Complex Case Analysis on the MSc Nutritional Therapy course at the University of Worcester
