In this sponsored post, Rebecca Davey of Arthritis ACT talks about her passion for supporting the chronic pain community, and her experience as a woman in business.
ARTHRITIS, Pain Support & ME/CFS ACT has been supporting the community since the mid 70s, says CEO Rebecca Davey.
“Women bring a unique lens to business,” she says.
“Ours is a caring organisation – we are about supporting our clients both physically and emotionally.
“This means we adopt this ethos in all areas of the business.
“For women looking at starting a business, I’d tell them to be themselves.
“Women offer a different way of viewing the world and relating to their clients, so be true to yourself in all things that you do.”
Rebecca says Arthritis ACT is more than an allied health service, and it’s more than an information service.
“We work with individuals to help them personally deal with their pain and fatigue on a holistic basis,” she says.
“We offer a wide range of practical and emotional supports to people living with persistent pain and debilitating fatigue of any source.
“This includes occupational therapy, physiotherapy, exercise physiology, art therapy and counselling.
“Pain and fatigue affect every part of us, social, emotional, spiritual and physical, and our service considers all these aspects of an individual’s life in helping them plan a way to find a way forward
“People deserve the help they need, no one should have to battle persistent pain or debilitating fatigue alone.”
