I’m Robin Wilson, Wellness Specialist and founder of Holistic Wellness.
The first 40 years of my life was like a roller coaster ride.
By the late 90’s I was overweight, stressed out, lacking energy, and generally not in a good place.
Trying to juggle motherhood with a demanding career and the stresses of a seriously unwell husband eventually paid its price. I knew something needed to change as I reached breaking point. I made changes to my diet and lifestyle and on the outside, life looked good.
But my better health journey didn’t stop.
Despite making significant health changes ten years later I developed Ulcerative Colitis – a hideous autoimmune disease. In hindsight the changes I’d made predominantly related to the body aspect of wellness only.
The next part of my journey began, to heal myself naturally, as I was not prepared to take the pharmaceutical drugs on offer. “There’s no cure for it” didn’t resonate with me! My body was simply saying “Why aren’t you listening? I’ve given you enough clues!”
I started listening to my body.
I began taking more notice of how my body felt, and then, investigating complementary therapies and taking a holistic approach, it worked!
In 2014 I left my 34-year career in banking and became a certified Health and Wellness Coach and Remedial Massage Therapist.
Today I use my learning to help people who are feeling stuck just like I was; stressed out, tired, lacking in energy, confused by all the information out there and feeling uncomfortable in more ways than one. Also, those suffering from an autoimmune disease or digestive issues, and no longer knowing what to do or where to turn.
If only I’d had a Health Coach back then to guide and support me when I was ready for change. I can be that person for you now.
