"Aged 37 and I thought my life as I knew it was over. I couldn’t move and I was in agony with painful swollen joints and allergies. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, given medication and told this is how I would be for life - but I am now aged 45, pain free and enjoying life to the full."

Recovery after 18 years

"18 years of cumulative persistent chronic pain in my neck, hips, back, knees, buttocks, right ankle and right thumb. Nothing alleviated the symptoms for more than a couple of days, even surgery. Since following the SIRPA Recovery programme I am pain free..."

Recovery after 18 years

Massive prolapsed disc

"I have realised how often over the years I said to myself and family ‘be careful’ when they had to lift or bend. This winter I shovelled snow without worry and with just a few twinges – all the time saying “this will make my back stronger” – and it did!" - Marie, 43

Hi, I’m Georgie Oldfield...

Thank you for visiting my site. My aim is to help people who suffer from persistent pain and for whom conventional medicine has failed to find an answer. I hope the information on this site, the products , on-line programme and, where necessary, the additional support I can provide, will help you not only resolve your pain, but regain your life. For patients who require an individual face to face consultation, I am based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, but I also run monthly London clinics.

Unfortunately chronic pain usually develops due to misdiagnosis because of the widespread belief that pain must have a physical cause, despite research concluding this is often not the case. The information on this site will help you recognise just how inextricably linked the mind and body are and how hidden stresses not only affect pain, but can cause persistent and often debilitating pain and other chronic conditions.

Our focus is on RECOVERY, not management
Chronic pain is maintained unconsciously by the brain and nervous system, but evidence shows that it is possible to reprogramme the brain and change these nerve pathways using conscious strategies.  Most rewarding of all is that because the process is reversible, full recovery is possible, no matter how severe or long standing the pain.  

The SIRPA approach to recovery from chronic pain
As the first health professional in Europe to develop a Specialism in this field, I now help people both Nationally and Internationally recover from chronic pain. After developing the SIRPA™ approach to chronic pain over the past few years, and having observed the often life changing results with my patients, I am absolutely passionate about raising the profile of this little known, yet extremely common, cause of so many health conditions.

What others say ...

Hazel Cross - back pain, anxiety & depression

After suffering from severe back pain and anxiety and depression I was constantly seeking a cure for my pain which became very expensive and I was finding I had reactions to pain medication. I felt a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders when I finally met Georgie and she assessed me.  At first I was naturally skeptical, but now I realise it was the best approach. I am now virtually pain free and would highly recommend Georgie and the SIRPA programme. It all clicked into place when I read the programme and  I still read it every now and again. I am much more active now than I used to be because before I was unable to go outside. I hope you will find help from Georgie whom I highly recommend.

Irene - update 4 years after recovery

I am totally pain free in both legs .... and feel wonderful.   I enjoy life so much and will always be grateful to you and Dr. Sarno.  Whenever I get a twinge of (what used to be) sciatica, I can will it away by just using the techniques you taught me, but that happens very rarely.   I thoroughly enjoy the SIRPA newsletter you send out every month and always read it avidly. You're doing such great work and I love the fact that you're going from strength to strength, expanding and spreading your knowledge to others who need help.

L.Phillips - hand & back pain

"This is not a quick fix but if you want to get to the root of your pain and are prepared to go on a journey that will last a lifetime, then the SIRPA programme is for you. The online material will provide you with all the tools you need to understand and change your pain, but the assessment and ongoing support from Georgie was essential for me. Just knowing I could quickly email any worries if anything went wrong was a great comfort and knowing I had a regular appointment helped me maintain the momentum and keep going. I would recommend the programme to anyone who is struggling with pain that cannot be explained or has no serious underlying cause."

C. Henderson - Backpain

"The work I have done with Georgie has been life changing... I have been working through the SIRPA online program at my own pace (as I have a little baby) and booked a package of 1:1 sessions with Georgie, which we carried out on Skype. The online program is so well structured & the 1:1 sessions were a wonderful supportive lifeline, especially when I experienced setbacks. Georgie always promptly, professionally & compassionately responded to my emails in between sessions. She is hugely knowledgeable, supportive & practices what she preaches, which makes her approach so genuine." 

Sally - Sciatica

I had been following the SIRPA online programme for nearly 3 weeks before deciding that I would benefit from seeing Georgie in person. I was very glad I attended the appointment and it was well worth the 3 hour journey from London! (Which in itself was a challenge that a month prior I would never have tackled!) Seeing Georgie really helped me feel like I was less alone in my pain, I felt the face-to-face contact with Georgie spurred me forward in understanding and accepting that I have been suffering from stress-illness. Having a physical examination and Georgie talking me through different examples that were similar to my own experiences, really helped me feel motivated and encouraged in continuing my path on the online SIRPA Recovery Programme. 

L.Stoddart - patient

Georgie is absolutely dedicated to trying to improve the lives of chronic pain sufferers by helping us to understand what lies behind our pain and giving us the tools with which we can turn our lives around and end what, for some of us, has been years of pain. She is smart, enthusiastic and very approachable and will bend over backwards to give additional support when required.  From my own experience with Georgie I can wholeheartedly recommend her to all chronic pain sufferers.

Amaya from Spain

I have no words to say how thankful I am for Georgie's support. From the very first contact on the phone, she was keen to help,  inspiring me trust and confidence.  She has been key in my recovery. The fact that she has a background as a Physiotherapist really helps because she perfectly understands what you mean when speaking about physical symptoms. You can tell she is passionate for what she does and her work is enhanced by her human touch and sensitiveness.  Amaya, Spain

James Wiltshire

"I hope that all is well with you and your mission. I sent you a few emails last year and you were so incredibly helpful.  Dr Sarno's work and your help meant that I have gone from chronic RSI on statutory sick pay to going self-employed musician. I have never felt more balance and physically I really feel best ever! I would always recommend people to you Georgie."

Carol - backpain and prolapsed disc

"I've been testing and pushing myself to the limit.  e.g. climbing trees, zooming down 150 feet high zip wires, climbing over un-mentionable obstacles.  Cycling up and down some very severe hills, camping and sleeping on the floor, moving furniture and lifting and manoeuvring a very heavy wardrobe!  All of which I have not done for at least 20 years for fear of hurting and making my back worse.  Thanks once again Georgie."

Wayne Kampers MRCPsych

"Georgina has an infectious and warm disposition. She is passionate about the Mind-Body link and her dedication to establishing what is still not accepted in mainstream healthcare is admirable and refreshing. She believes she can make a difference and because her belief is unshakable she does make a difference! The world could do with a lot more people like her.” Consultant Psychiatrist
