People Andrea has worked with.
“I love life – every day is an opportunity to be something more, to learn something bigger and to somehow figure out what it all means. Some say that living is one step closer to dying; I say living is one more day experiencing miracles and learning about people and their journeys. This is the most rewarding classroom: life. I tend to see people as individuals to be honest and am not a big name dropper. I have worked with”:
Hundreds of people over 13 years in nutrition and 20 years as a pharmacist.
Many sports disciplines from amateur to professional and olympic level in more than twenty different sports disciplines (track and field, rowing, long distance running, short distance triathlon, long distance triathlon, extreme challenges such as rowing across the Atlantic, slalom canoe, rugby, swimming, GAA football, hurling, professional soccer, boxing, martial arts, para-olympic (rowing, track and sprinting), high jump, sailing, power lifting, body building, race walking, cross-country, Irish dancing, basketball).
I have journeyed with many world-class athletes through rugby world cups, Heineken cups, Olympic games, World championships, Kona ironman, and I guess the most important category that isn’t a category which is personal success.
People who just want to talk, be heard, and are ready to allow the healing journey and wisdom that is for them to unfold.
Persons suffering with chronic health complaints through the whole A-Z; I rarely see a diagnosis as a challenge that is bigger than both of us. If you have a will, I will find a way. My preferred areas of expertise are fatigue, post-viral syndrome, gastrointestinal problems, auto-immune conditions, anxiety depression and eating disorders. I also specialise in sports nutrition and working with high level athletes (both well and fatigued).
