is ME / CFS / FM / PVFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ Fibromyalgia / Post Viral Fatigue
ME/ CFS/ FM/ PVFS are debilitating physical illnesses
which arise as a result of prolonged exposure to stress or by
living in a way which is not in harmony with our body's inherent
It is a disorder of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis in which the Hypothalamus (the master gland) gets stuck on red alert.
The immune system is destabilised, adrenaline is pumped around the body and energy is diverted from the head and stomach to the muscles (which are in a constant fight or flight mode).
The resulting symptoms include severe fatigue, muscle pain, brain fog, nausea, sleep problems and sensitivity to noise and light.
Fear of the symptoms and of "doing too much" produces more adrenaline so that we become locked in a cycle of chronic illness.
How Reverse Therapy works
I use Reverse Therapy combined with other techniques drawn from my
experience to help you break free of the cycle of illness. I will
help you listen to what your body is trying to tell you through your
symptoms and help you to act upon these needs and feelings. When the
body feels heard, it is able to turn down the production of adrenaline
and your symptoms will reduce and clear.
You will also learn how to say "stop" to the fearful and
negative thoughts which keep you locked in the symptom-producing adrenaline
loop. We will work
with small practical steps so that you can build your confidence and bring
more fun, activity and purpose into your life and start to live the
life you want.
I have 25 years experience working as a therapist, couple counsellor
and family therapist. I am a fully licensed Reverse Therapy
Practitioner and have a deep personal understanding of the effects
of ME/ CFS/ FM/ PVFS.
