Dr Katya’s Mind-Body course ‘Finding your inner doctor

Like many other people, I have entrusted the doctors with my health. Even after qualifying as a doctor myself, I did not question my doctors for prescribing increasingly potent medication for a fairly common condition. However, when my hospital specialist letter stated: “not responding to conventional treatment” and I was offered potent immunosuppressants, I knew I had to look for the answers elsewhere. I decided to look inwards. With the help of professionals, my family and friends, lifestyle and complementary medicine, I emerged on the other side. Having gone through my own inner healing journey, I could not treat my patients the same as before. So I researched and trained extensively to help people to explore their symptoms as an integral part of themselves. Mind-body approach looks at physical symptoms as being intricately related to the rest of our lives. My personal healing journey, further training and the experience of working one-to-one with my patients in this way inspired me to create this course and help you find your inner doctor.
