FHT member interviewed for the Dungannon Herald

Jackie Grimley_low_res

FHT member, Jackie Grimley, has recently been featured in the Dungannon Herald as the subject of ‘The Big Interview’.

Jackie told journalist Annmay McNally about her career journey, her recent Families First Northern Ireland Healthcare Provider Award win, and how helping other people is central to her role as a complementary therapist.

Jackie’s commitment to helping others also extends to fellow therapists, as she is the South Tyrone FHT Local Support Group Coordinator. Speaking about this role, Jackie told the Dungannon Herald:

‘Since the group started I have arranged monthly meetings where we have heard from speakers like Josephine Gallagher (Angel Sanctuary), Dr Aileen O’Kane (All illness begins in the gut) and Trudy Arthurs to name a few.

‘These meetings have proved to be a popular and light-hearted way to connect, learn and share with local therapists.

‘It has been rewarding for me, as it provides a platform for therapists to discuss any concerns they may have, and helps spread the word on what is happening in the world of holistic therapies.

‘My aim for these meetings is to help take away that fear of loneliness as it is my belief that together we really are stronger and have a lot to offer.’

As the headline sponsor of Chamberlain Dunn’s Complementary Therapy Awards, the FHT has been invited to put forward industry experts to promote the health benefits of complementary therapy on UK Health Radio.

This Sunday, tune in and hear FHT accredited course provider, Jennifer Young, being interviewed by Robin Daly on UK Health Radio’s ‘Yes To Life Show’. Founder of Beauty Despite Cancer, Jennifer talks to Robin about developing a range of natural skincare products for people affected by cancer, setting up an appearance and wellbeing clinic based in a major London hospital, and developing specialist training for therapists.

As part of the same show, Robin also talks to Dr Michael Dixon, GP and Chair of the College of Medicine, who is a strong advocate of preventative medicine, healthy living and integrated health care. Among other topics, they discuss Dr Dixon’s unique practice in Devon, social prescribing, and why complementary therapies are important to the health service. As Dr Dixon tells Robin in the interview, ‘In the future, as we start to expand our view of what local health involves and who needs to be included in that, I think complementary medicine will become a major influence – not only in terms of individual treatment, but also in terms of improving local health within our communities’.

The interview will be aired at 2am on Sunday 15 July on UK Health Radio – but don’t worry if you’ll be tucked up in bed! The interview will be repeated throughout the week at different times each day and then made available on demand, on Robin Daly’s webpage
