We are Graham and Annette Henry, husband and wife, and partners of Henry & Henry @Derwenthorpe Wellgood, which we established to make a difference to the health, happiness and wellbeing of others in a way that builds upon our own experiences and transitions. When we look back at the past couple of decades, we realise that between us, we were experiencing a range of chronic conditions which we no longer have. We think it’s about twelve:
Blood Pressure (high)
Perhaps not surprisingly, we resorted to resignation for cellulite (believing that once you’ve got it, you’re stuck with it), prescription and over-the-counter medicines for many of the others, and to surgery for one of them. None of them worked. Yes, they eased symptoms but nothing ever resolved them, so they persisted or recurred. But they have now ‘gone’ and we have very good reason to believe that it has pretty much everything to do with the way we live; specifically an emphasis on natural food and greater awareness.
So what do we do?
We have an integrative approach to promoting health, happiness and more conscious living. At the heart of what we do is a creative and imaginative approach to food and eating which we call the Power of Natural Food and we convey this both through classes and food itself with our main objective being to inspire and enthuse ourselves and others towards new ways of thinking about food. Additionally, making changes, adapting and becoming happier and even healthier are all easier when we’re better able to be in the here and now, be more aware of our beliefs and judgements, and be more attuned to our own guiding system or resonance. This is the basis of the The Power of Awareness which underpins all of our classes as well as being a class series in its own right.
Why does Derwenthorpe feature in our company name? Derwenthorpe is our home; it is a sustainable development to the east of York. Inspired and realised by the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, Derwenthorpe is a growing community with architecture that reminds us of living in Northern Europe in earlier phases of our adult lives.
Henry & Henry are passionate supporters of clean air.
We request that any visitors arriving at Derwenthorpe by car please turn off their engines when the vehicle is stationary.
