A legal secretary in her mid 50’s was forced to retire, aged 31, on grounds of ill health. She presented to us in 2016 with multiple physical and psychological symptoms, and dependence on high doses of analgesic and psychotropic medication. High anxiety, agoraphobia and exhaustion have presented the main ongoing challenges. Substantial reduction of some medication has been achieved with the help of vowel A in Eurythmy Therapy (ET).
