Yvette Sargood was one of the presenters at the AMEX 2017: 7 Steps to Overcoming MS Event that took place in Brighton on the 22nd of October 2017.
Yvette has spent much of her career working in human resources in global organisations including IBM, GSK, Canon and Nokia and now works independently as an Executive Coach and Consultant with her husband, Jurgen.
Yvette was finally diagnosed with MS in 2016, however the reality is that she had MS for many years. She says,
“It was pretty benign for 20 plus years, so I just got on with life!”
She discovered George’s book in 2014 at the point when she realized that she needed to ‘get my head out of the sand’ and do something! Since then she has been committed to following the OMS Recovery Program which she has found incredibly empowering. She attended the London Retreat in 2015 and is now passionate about helping others work with the OMS Recovery Program.
Inspired by the Recovery Program, Yvette studied part-time for a MSc in Mindfulness at Exeter University with a view to supporting people with MS, and to help them realize the benefits of mindfulness for their well-being and quality of life. She offers group and one-to-one mindfulness training sessions.
