ME/CFS

The Occupational Therapy BSc Hons degree is a holistic course with a biopsychosocial curriculum. My degree gave me the necessary grounding to begin to understand this complex condition. I have since undertaken additional training from both NHS, and complementary therapists, who specialise in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and Fibromyalgia. I have combined the most effective aspects of this training to provide a practical 7 session programme to address the many varied symptoms of these conditions, and ultimately shorten your journey to health and wellbeing.

In addition I can explain:

  • The delayed fatigue and how to avoid it.
  • The variety of cognitive (thinking) problems and strategies to deal with them.
  • Why a good nights sleep is difficult (despite feeling so tired) and how to improve it.
  • The digestive issues and intolerances to food/drink and how to deal with these.
  • The excessive worry or anxiety experienced and how to reduce it.

Having experienced CFS myself I understand how frightening and disheartening this misunderstood condition can be, and importantly what it takes to achieve a new sense of wellbeing.

“I can’t thank you enough for all the information and support over the programme. It really has made a huge difference to me and I’ve got a lot out of it which has helped me make great improvements to my health, both physical and mental health. I just feel like I can tackle the fatigue so much better now and have a more positive approach to the way I think about it.” Yasmin, CFS client.

“Tina has a depth of knowledge that I have not encountered with any other Occupational Therapist. I would not hesitate to recommend her.” Lisa Watson, Physiotherapist MCSP.
