Some of her words resonated strongly with various groups: “ the ANP aims to support you as a practitioner, whilst reaching out to actual real people – people who are still in that sick stage… awareness raising is about reaching as many people as possible to start that same journey that we have been on – to challenge the orthodox, to try something kinder, gentler and still more effective and to demand that the information they need to help themselves get better”.
