I’m Fine

I’m excited to share my recent appearance on the podcast “I’m Fine,” hosted by the talented Jean Campbell. Jean, a renowned British fashion model, has graced the covers of numerous high-profile magazines and walked the runway for top fashion houses like Louis Vuitton and Alexander McQueen. Despite her illustrious modelling career, Jean has faced significant personal challenges, including chronic pain from hip dysplasia. Her experience with chronic pain has shaped her resilience and inspired her to create a platform for discussing mental health and wellbeing through her podcast.During our conversation, I had the opportunity to share my personal story, connection, and passion for developing pain recovery programs. With over 30 years in the medical and clinical community, I’ve dedicated my career to providing comprehensive assessments and evaluations for those in need of a clear diagnosis. My journey has allowed me to collaborate with some of the best healthcare professionals in the world, as we’ve all strived to fill a crucial void in the healthcare system; to develop tailored, personalised, whole health treatment plans that really centre the individual in their care. On the podcast, Jean and I explored the intricacies of chronic pain management and how symptoms can be somatised within the mind and body. I shared my personal story and experiences with pain, discussing how they have fuelled my commitment to helping others navigate similar challenges. We delved into the importance of empathy, understanding, and holistic approaches in treatment, aiming to provide listeners with insights into effective strategies for managing pain. It was a heartfelt and enriching discussion that I hope will resonate with many and shed light on the impactful work being done to support those in recovery. Link to the podcast recording below:
