Mandy Naylor BSc (hons) Specialist Community Public Health Nurse – Sexual Health Advisor, Dip HE Adult Nurse, Associate Lecturer in Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare, Alignment Therapist, Author & Law of Attraction Life Coach
For over twenty five years, I have worked in Authentic Empowerment Alignment Facilitation, utilising healing and therapeutic qualifications and skills such as 3rd & 4th generation NLP, Authentic Leadership, Shamanic Breathwork, Life Coach and Inner Child Clean Language Facilitation amongst others. Supporting hundreds of people from all over the globe with varied issues ranging from Depression, Rape, PTSD, Fears & Phobias, Addiction, Relationship issues, Self-Sabotage and many others.
Alongside this I have worked within NHS Specialist Sexual Health Services for the last fourteen years initially as a Specialist Nurse Practitioner and since 2008 as a Sexual Health Advisor (Specialist Community Public Health Nurse). With emphasis on 1:1 consultation with our client group supporting individuals living with HIV, people who have been the victim of rape, sexual exploitation, human trafficking, forced marriage, in power imbalance relationships and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) amongst many other challenges our client group faced.
A part of this role was to design and deliver alongside my colleagues a full and comprehensive sexual health education programme for Doctors and Nurses to teach them about all aspects of sexual health and enable them to be able to care for the sexual health needs of their practice populations.
Another spoke to my sexual health work was in clinic within Brook Advisory young people’s service issuing Contraception and providing STI testing, treatments and management, whilst providing a holistic assessment to ensure any additional support needs were identified and acted upon framed always within a safeguarding perspective for all young people.
In March 2015 I began work as a Lecturer in Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare with the University of Central Lancashire teaching on the BSc (Hons) Sexual Health Studies Degree. Module leading on eleven modules on the course and becoming course leader for BSc (Hons) Sexual Health Practice Degree. Specialist subjects taught at degree and masters level include Safeguarding, STI’s, HIV & Hepatitis, Public Health elements, Global Sexual Health, Leadership, Contraception for clinical and non-clinical students, Sex and Relationship Education, Communication Studies, Sexual Health Promotion amongst others.
In June 2017 we moved to the Dordogne in France to fulfil a goal and desire for a lifestyle change and to pursue my work as an Author, Alignment Coach and Sexual Health Educator. I continue to work for universities as an Associate Lecturer Teaching E-Learn module alongside working in Alignment Practice. My first book ‘Practical Magic – A Journey to Wholeness was published on 14th February 2018.
The people I have worked with have come from many different places and background and have experienced many differing issues and challenges yet the one thing I have learned from many years of this work is that we are all more alike than different. My intention is to teach and promote authentic alignment and empowerment, to facilitate understanding of the power we all hold to create a life to make us smile as opposed to living in lack and just getting by.
