“In 2017 I had a variety of symptoms including tingling sensations in my hands, feet and in the back of my head which caused me to faint. I was having various tests with my GP and whilst waiting for a CT scan with a neurologist, I made more of an effort to look after myself, to slow down, eat better and do more exercise.
My GP stated that it was becoming increasingly common that patients would cure their symptoms through diet and nutrition, but they weren’t medically advanced enough to recommend it as a treatment, so I went away and researched techniques that would continue to advance my wellbeing, but the sort of platform that I was looking for inspiration from, I couldn’t find, so I created Welllness HQ. I realised I had been on my own path to wellness since writing a blog that focused on my social, emotional, physical, occupational, environment and spiritual wellbeing. I wrote about things that made me happy, including a bucket list of things I wanted to do and I did them! So I wanted to encourage other people to do things that would make them happy, so we created an online magazine which focuses on inspiring and motivating people to do things they want to do, with a directory attached to it as well so you can search for relevant professionals and also offer a range of business support services.”

In 2017 Founder, Georga Cottle, experienced anxiety/headaches/fainting and was referred to a neurologist by her GP. Whilst awaiting an appointment for a CT scan she made a conscious effort to look after herself and her symptoms subsided, in which her GP stated:
“It is becoming increasingly common for patients to improve their symptoms through diet and nutrition but we are not medically advanced enough to recommend it as a treatment”
Georga realised that she had accidentally stumbled upon her own path to Wellness through her blog ‘Adventures of a Part Time Parent’ and wanted to find out more about how wellness techniques could continue to help improve her health to reduce her stress, which has been described as the health epidemic of the 21st century by the World Health Organisation.
She could not find a central place of resource with focus on the the intrinsically linked pillars of wellness: Physical, Social, Emotional, Spiritual, Occupational, and Environmental, so she created a central hub to inspire others to take back control of their health through simple and sustainable changes.
