A Yorkshire psychotherapist has launched a new business coaching firm inspired by her years of battling with chronic fatigue syndrome, also called ME.

Gemma Wardell has launched training firm Human Brilliance with the aim of working with individuals and organisations to help them overcome challenges and “unleash their potential”.Did you know with a Digital subscription to Yorkshire Post, you can get access to all of our premium content, as well as benefiting from fewer ads, loyalty rewards and much more.She said: “My illness started with a virus which couldn’t be pinned down easily.

“The first couple of years were horrendous and people were telling me I would not recover and would end up in a wheelchair. There were times when I thought that was it and things wouldn’t get any better. The whole journey to recovery was about eight to ten years.” “Eventually I just completely crashed. I was housebound for about 18 months, I spent time in hospital and in an isolation unit well before Covid. It was thought I had a tropical disease but it was a virus that started to affect my body. Because I’m stubborn and thought I was invincible, I kept pushing and pushing in an attempt to overcome my symptoms, and was eventually diagnosed with ME.”

During her slow recovery Ms Wardell started to study psychology and trained in neurolinguistic programming, therapeutic and health coaching, transactional analysis, counselling, and psychotherapy. She is an accredited psychotherapist with a passion for organisational psychology.

She added: “I called it Human Brilliance because humans are truly brilliant – through my work, I have witnessed many people overcoming challenges and adversity in the most amazing ways.”Did you know with a Digital subscription to Yorkshire Post, you can get access to all of our premium content, as well as benefiting from fewer ads, loyalty rewards and much more.
