Hello, I’m Heather and I’m so glad you found me. Having recovered from CFS myself using The Chrysalis Effect Recovery Program I am well placed to support you on your unique recovery journey. I have also supported family members and friends through their journeys with CFS and Fibromyalgia, which means I am able to offer support from both perspectives in addition to my expertise as a recovery specialist.

Inspired by my own recovery I retrained and am now an ILM Wellbeing Coach and Accredited Specialist Practitioner in recovery supporting people experiencing CFS, ME, Fibromyalgia, and Post Viral Fatigue (PVF). I founded my own wellbeing coaching business ‘Happier by Heather’, and using tried and tested methods I work together with clients to unlock the secret to a balanced, healthier, and more authentic life based on their individual needs.

For over 30 years I have worked extensively with adults living with a chronic illness to enhance their health and wellbeing, including my former roles as Registered Nurse, NHS Health Trainer, and University Researcher. I am also a Doctor in Health Psychology (PhD). This knowledge and experience means your in safe hands. Working with me will take the guesswork and isolation out of your return to health, and accelerate your recovery by interrupting the progress of your symptoms. You can be sure I will empathetically, mindfully and sensitively support you through The Chrysalis Effect Recovery pathway using Wellbeing Coaching and my experience as a Health Psychologist.

During our work together I offer a bespoke package of care and based on your unique needs using tried and tested tools to transform your health and wellbeing. I draw on numerous modalities that support you in body, mind and spirit including energy work; movement; mindfulness; and creativity. I am also part of a team of Chrysalis Effect Practitioners to ensure that you receive all the support you need. Working through the same process certainly accelerated my recovery and there are many more examples out there!

I am based in Sheffield in South Yorkshire and offer sessions either face-to-face, via Zoom, or by phone. You can contact me between sessions via email, or phone. If you’d like to find out more about what I can do for you please email me at hdunn@happierbyheather.com to book a FREE 30-minute discovery call and health appraisal. During the call I will answer any questions you may have and explain what you can expect from our work together so that you can decide if I’m the right person to support you.

Wishing you every success in your recovery journey, Heather
