Hi! We’re Jennifer and Karden, seasoned mindbody practitioners who have experienced chronic fatigue and pain.
Hi! I'm Jennifer,
Co-founder of CFS School.
I'm a certified mind-body practitioner with clinical training. I've worked in the health and wellness industry for ten years as a functional movement therapist, holistic body worker, Yoga teacher, Pilates instructor, and performance coach.
At the peak of my career, I became severely ill with chronic fatigue, severe anxiety, POTS, chronic back and hip pain, and many other "unexplained" symptoms, leaving me bedridden.
Everything I knew from my studies in Physiotherapy, Biomedical Sciences, and Functional Movement therapy became irrelevant.
I was told that I would be ill for a very long time and that I may never know life as I knew it before.
But I discovered that putting my nervous system (mind + body) at the core of my healing journey was the answer to my making a full recovery.
Now, I help people do the same here at CFS School, through coaching, and sharing on Instagram (123K followers and counting).Follow Jenn on Instagram

I was born and bred in Manchester in the UK. My passion for gigs and festivals led me to pursue a career working behind the scenes at some of the country’s biggest venues and event spaces, running sold-out performances for bands such as Prodigy and Fatboy Slim. I love being outdoors, trekking through the amazing countryside the north of England has to offer, and my obsession with dogs is totally out of hand.
After being bed-bound for most of 2021, I saw 2022 as an opportunity to change this and take control, and that's why I joined CFS School. I learned that I can heal myself, stop looking externally for answers, and I have everything in me to heal.Book a 1:1
I’m Rachael but very much known as Rach. I live a seaside lifestyle in Southsea (Portsmouth) on the South Coast of England. My weeks currently revolve around attending local yoga & Pilates classes, sea swims, working on my property business with my partner, and spending plenty of time being active outdoors!
Before I stumbled across CFS School I had been particularly unwell for around 3 years with chronic fatigue syndrome.
I was fortunate to have a local CFS service that helped me manage my symptoms but it only got me so far as it didn’t address healing the nervous system. Fast forward through various ups & downs, trying many other treatments and research, and I landed upon Jennifer on Instagram and discovered CFS School.
Coming out the other side of feeling trapped in my own body, I’m aligning with my true self more as I move through my days and weeks. I’m able to do so many activities that bring me joy (especially high-energy watersports!) and feel optimistic about what’s to come in my future.Book a 1:1
My professional background is in Project Management in the Banking industry in Ireland. I live in Greystones, Wicklow, Ireland with my husband and two young daughters.
I fully recovered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E. and Chronic Pain/Fibromyalgia after doing the CFS School Live Programme in 2022.
My decades-long ill health began in my early teens when I got glandular fever (Epstein Barr virus) and was sick for months. Thereafter, a host of various symptoms ensued culminating in being bed-bound and in chronic pain with no answers or support for recovery.
However, having watched others fully recover and share their story, I never stopped searching for a way out because I believed full recovery was possible.
I tried everything under the sun within my reach, even achieving 70% recovery after brain retraining but plateaued. It was not until I turned my attention to the Nervous System and Trauma did I find CFS School which resonated deeply with me.
I continue to learn and practice with beautiful results and am passionate about supporting others in healing as well.Book a 1:1
