About The Fibro Clinic South West
Based in Barnstaple, North Devon, The Fibro Clinic South West offers support, treatments and workshops for women who suffer with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The inspiration for the clinic comes from the founder Jok Saunders, diagnosed with fibromyalgia and understands too well what it is to live with the disruption to life caused by an invisible illness with symptoms such as:
Sensory overload and heightened sensitivity (visual/touch/smell/noise/pain)
IBS and digestion problems
Low mood / Depression
Intolerances / Allergies
The Clinic offers Fibromyalgia Support in numerous ways:
Believing in your uniqueness is our fundamental core and we understand the value of SUPPORT and feeling confident that you can share any concerns about your illness without judgement. Receiving a diagnosis, learning to live with an invisible chronic condition is a life changing process, grieving, letting go and acceptance of the imposed limitations has a ripple effect throughout, not only our own lives, but also family, social and career.

Jok Saunders, the founder of the clinic, retired Nutritionist, brings many years of experience working in various organisations, NHS and private practice. As a trained counsellor and facilitator, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Practitioner in Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping), in more recent years Jok’s life was turned upside down after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. During her persistent struggle, learning to pace and accept the prospects of this diagnosis, Jok’s exploration of finding new ways to cope, inspired her pursuit in finding a natural and holistic approach to restore her health and wellbeing.
Continuing her personal development and following her passion Jok trained in Mindfulness and Pain Management (Dip IAHT) creating her own model, S.T.A.R.S.
