Introducing Our New Wellbeing Advisory Board

At Mast Cell Action, we are committed to improving the lives of those living with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome.

We hope to continue to provide comprehensive support, raise awareness, and share resources that lead to better treatments and understanding of this complex condition. As part of our ongoing commitment, we are thrilled to introduce our new Wellbeing Advisory Board.

Our Vision

The Wellbeing Advisory Board is a dedicated team of experts and advocates passionate about enhancing the quality of life for people living with MCAS. Our board will guide us in developing resources and services that address the physical, emotional, and social challenges faced by our community.

Introducing our board...

Deborah Bircham

Deborah is a Mindfulness teacher and Holistic Health Coach, and she specialises in supporting people with long-term health conditions through a combination of naturopathic health coaching, mindfulness and psychotherapy techniques. She has a particular interest in the mind-body connection and how we can support our own wellbeing through self-care and self-compassion practices. She has MCAS, Dysautonomia and Lyme Disease and uses her own lived experience of long-term illness to enable her to fully understand and support those she works with. You can find out more about Deborah here.

Anna Garratt

Anna is a Hypnotherapist, Mindfulness and Breathwork Practitioner.  She has MCAS, and has first hand experience of the journey that many within the MCAS community and beyond endure to be heard, believed and supported. Anna is passionate about helping people and works with those who have experienced or are experiencing trauma on a physical, psychological and emotional level. She equips individuals with mindfulness and breathwork techniques as tools for life, supporting each person to remain connected to self during life's ups and downs. You can read more about Anna here.

Our Goals

The Wellbeing Advisory Board will focus on multiple areas of our work to enhance the lives of those living with MCAS.

Supporting the development of our wellbeing resources will be a key function of the board, as they review and advise on resources, such as guides on wellbeing and mental health support.

Thank you to the members of our board for giving up their time to support the MCAS community.

Looking to the future

We are excited about the work we will be able to deliver with our Wellbeing Advisory Board sharing their experience and expertise.

Together, we hope to continue to make a real difference and help those with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome lead better, happier lives.
