DR PATRICIA WORBY PHD
Co-founder, Trauma Specialist
Patricia Worby, PhD1 is a trained research scientist, author and award-winning Chrysalis Effect Specialist Practitioner in fatigue and chronic illness2specialising in emotional trauma release. After graduation in Biochemistry with Pharmacology, she was going to ‘change the world through science’ but life intervened in a quite surprising way. After a series of devastating health challenges in her 30’s, including depression and chronic fatigue, she found no solution in conventional medicine and so began to research to find her own answers. What she found changed her world view permanently and began an entirely new career and life change.
She trained in massage , Reiki, natural medicine (naturopathy) and nutrition. She then launched a successful holistic therapy business in 2013, but she noticed that not everyone responded to interventions in a lasting way and came to realise that childhood relational trauma was a large contributor to that inability to heal permanently. She found many people developed Chronic Fatigue Syndromes (CFS/ME) as a result of a hyper-alert stress response and became a Chrysalis Effect Practitioner specialising in the emotional healing of CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia in 2014. She therefore trained in psychology and hypnotherapy and is now a specialist somatic trauma therapist using Hypnotherapy (completing her PhD in clinical hypnotherapy in 2016), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to relieve the chronic stress of somatic emotional imprints to long-term illness of all kinds.
She has written numerous books, online courses and now hosts a regular podcast where she interviews other ‘health warriors’ and reviews books and tools to self-healing. In her ‘spare time’ she loves playing music, visiting art galleries, taking walks in nature and researching new ideas in biology and physics. She believes there has never been a better time to be alive.
