Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together

Why do I have a special interest in CFS/ME?

If you, or someone you love, suffer from this distressing and debilitating illness, you may already be at your wits end. I may be able to help.

My husband suffered from this illness for 2 years before we knew what was wrong with him and he had to retire from work at the age of 45. I gave up my job and dedicated my life to helping him to regain his health - which he did. From the months of hopelessness, the mountain of research, the never-ending visits to doctors, consultants, various therapists, to the learning of new techniques, skills, behaviours and ways of coping, I can now share this knowledge with others and also recommend other types of treatment that are beneficial in managing and speeding up the process of recovery.

Using the broad base of knowledge gained, the hands on experience of living with a CFS sufferer along with the combined skills of hypnotherapy and NLP I can work alongside other qualified practitioners in the treatment of CFS.

Profile of a CFS Sufferer

CFS sufferers tend to be highly motivated individuals who led a very active life before the onset of the illness. For them, it can be very depressing to be inactive and exhausted, this can lead to feelings of hopelessness and anxiety. Sometimes it can be hard to ask for help.

Causes of CFS

Medical opinions differ greatly on what causes CFS and how to treat it. Some researchers believe the illness could be related to a person’s genes and their susceptibility to viral infection, stress, depression or major life events which could act as a trigger for CFS to develop.

Some say it's caused by a bacterial or a viral infection which affects the immune system so badly, the result is the onset of CFS.

Other opinions say it is a physical disorder that leads to a build up of toxins within the brain and the spine. One technique (The Perrin Technique) has been developed to diagnose CFS/ME by identifying definite physical signs and to treat the disorder by improving drainage of these poisons from the central nervous system.


Whichever way you look at it, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a debilitating illness, characterised by some or many of the following symptoms:

  • Abdominal pain and digestive problems.
  • Brain fog.
  • Chest pain
  • Depression, irritability, anxiety, panic attacks
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Excessive perspiration
  • Exercise intolerance
  • Extreme exhaustion
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Headaches or dizziness
  • Palpitations usually induced by exertion
  • Poor concentration
  • Poor stamina (if any)
  • Recurrent sore or lumpy throat or swollen glands
  • Sensitivity to light or loud noises
  • Short term memory loss
  • Shortness of breath, aggravated by exertion
  • Toxic build up in the lymphatic system

    Of course everyone is different and there are varying degrees to which a sufferer can be affected.

  • How hypnotherapy can help

    Hypnotherapy is a complimentary therapy, working alongside the medical profession or other types of therapy. It is an excellent way to retrain your mind and body to work in harmony, helping you to:

  • Ease the pain

  • Stop worrying

  • Free yourself from anxiety and stress

  • Manage a healthy exercise regime

  • Get back to balanced way of living

    You can learn:

  • What your body is telling you

  • How to identify the triggers that tell you to slow down

  • How to sleep better

  • How to have your inner critic work for you

  • How to gradually bounce the boundaries so you can increase activity little by little

  • To learn to recover from the inevitable mental and physical setbacks that characterise the illness

  • To understand that relapse is part of the recovery process

  • The skill set needed to manage on a daily basis
