Manage episode 342315452 series 3360947
In this week’s exciting episode I am interviewing Andrea Haas, Doctor, Classical Ballet Teacher, Reiki master, Hypnotherapist and EFT practitioner.
Andrea trained at Southampton medical school, and after 18 months of working as a doctor, she took 3 years off to do a full time dance course and qualified as a classical ballet teacher.
She then trained in Sport and Exercise Medicine, and has worked in Rheumatology, for the Army Rehab unit in Aldershot and in private practice.
She got interested in alternative therapies when her first secretary was a Reiki master. This opened her mind beyond western medicine.
One of her jobs was in the musculoskeletal dept at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, (Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital). Managing patients with chronic pain made her feel more like a counsellor, and so she decided to do a Psychotherapy course in order to understand her patients better. The first year was hypnotherapy. The tutor for that year also demonstrated EFT, so once qualified she then went on to study EFT.
She is currently working one day a week in a pain team in the NHS, providing a holistic approach to the management of pain.
In her private practice she helps clients manage pain without the use of medication, and also helps women who feel stuck in their lives. Click here to visit her website.
